Fall Colors Ride Oct 2013

Update: 11Oct2013

Same concept as last year:

Who: Good people who ride motorbikes

What: Show up, ride, camp, eat, drink, be merry, have a good time, (hopefully not in your tent)

Where (FINAL ANSWER): Calaveras Big Trees State Park


When:
Weather / Tree Color Dependent
Primary: October: 18-20
Alternate: Oct 25-27


If the weather is truly supposed to be shit on the primary date, we will reschedule to the alternate date. Be flexible, its worth it.

This is 95% unorganized. It is a modified 'Farm Rules' event. No shirts, no pins, no food, no swag, no strippers.

This is not an ADV organized ride/event. I will not be there to greet you and hold your hand to set up your camp or your ride. Usually about 20 of us show up, we share camp sites, and just ride motorbikes and enjoy each others company.


ALSO;
Sorry for the sketchyness all year. After breaking my foot in May I am only about 6 weeks into riding again. My foot is still pretty swollen and I can just now fit my foot into a proper riding boot. I had hope to ride a bit this summer and scout out a good place for us to do this, but but this was a shitty year for me, riding wise.

Anyhoo, see you bastiges at Calaveras Big Trees. For those that don't know, for the last 2 events we have been somewhere between campgrounds 61 and 65. IF you show up and site 65 is nice, take it. I have a handicapped placard and can legally use that site. othewise, stick with what we know.

The motivation

By the list so far, you might want to rename it "Fall Gimpfest"

Foot. I crushed part of the right one. Same thing you saw me hobbling around with. Found out after seeing 2nd doc it was more than soft tissue

Plates/ screws installed last month. Go back early July for removal. Should be back on 2 wheels by aug.

Yikes. Best wishes on the hardware removal. See if they will let you keep some of it to use on the DR.

I'm in. I vote to try the Grover hot springs camp at Markleeville. I stayed there last year (though they closed for repairs during OUR ride). Nice spot.. good riding, showers, etc. Food/booze nearby.

Thats not bad. I do hate the state parks though. SOOOOO expensive.

Just a thought here.... get rid of the crutches and the DR, without one you won't need the other.

Honestly, once I get back from Alaska next year....that may just happen.

9 months on crutches in 4 years. I probably cant take much more of this shit.
