Haven't made up my mind. Thought about doing just one day..
Are y'all camping if you do it?
And do y'all have the roll-chart stuff already?

Yeah we're camping and riding both days. We don't have any roll chart holders and didn't last year either. It was fairly easy without though. Let us know if you go
