Ray

are you decide to camp after all???

if you are trailering bring an ez-up if you have one (just in case of rain), bring beer (if you drink), a cup for Kyles coffee - and the DR will be fine.

Well the cabins were rented already the Spa is out of my price range and something was telling me not to do the hotel after I talked to the guy on the phone. Dunno why.

Talked to Jeff and I will be camping with them at their site. I might just sleep in the back of the truck.

No brew for me. I haven't had a drink in 20 years, so a cooler of soda will be coming with me. Guess breakfast food and snacks as well.


Crap! Now I need to find a bike ramp for the truck.
I better hurry up and put it back together too. Just had it painted. Had to stop the rust some how.

Hope to see you there.

I like the biscuits at the camp store. Others have complained but I think they waited till 10 or 11 o'clock to go up there an got stale ones. Or maybe just not from the south an don't like biscuits. The diner has pretty good breakfasts too.

Ray, I'll be towing my bikes on a low trailer but I have an aluminum ramp I can probably strap on there if you need it....lemme know. I'll be there mid morning Fri. If you are coming in Thur, I can met you at Trust and you take it and I'll get it back after you load up Sunday or somethin.

Thanks.

Since Jeff is local I will see if his will work since I can try it out. If it won't then I will PM you.

I think Mark is going to reserve a spot where we were last year; you can probably squeeze in there somewhere.
OK, sounds good to me. I'll set up the coffee under the bandshell again. Will it have rained enough by then there?

Race week - BRISTOL - 8-21 to 8-24

Anyone interested? I have plenty of camping space.

Anyone shows, we can put together some killer rides from there on anything you desire!

My little Ascot is no stranger to the offroad. (some of use "flatlanders" are a little crazy you know)

I just have to watch for the larger rocks as the oil sump is very exposed.
If it had a skid plate I might do more with it.
It is quite a capable dual sport machine but I don't do anything hard core with it. The XR engine that Honda put in it it torquey and is light enough to play with. It has dual sport tires on it and handles mose all but muddy stuff.
Since I have the DR now I doubt it will see much dirt anymore.
