Not me. I know a guy

I do feel sorry for whoever reserved that site. I don't know if they got it for the rally, or are just "regular" campers. But that close to the Lobster Clan, the beer trailer and Bonebag is sure to raise some ire

Heck, you stepped up and helped me out so maybe I can return the favor.

Hello all! I'm considering making this my inaugural rally. I'm still a beginner when it comes to trails but I'm stubborn and learn quick. Any suggestions for me? I've got the camping gear and whatnot from time with the Boy Scouts, and I'm slowly getting my stuff together toolwise.

Can you trailer along a little bike? That'll make the trails easier. The campground is a full-service campground, so there's showers and electricity and everything.

Don't stress too much about the tools too much. There will be enough people with tools at the campground to do a full rebuild on six bikes simultaneously. Be prepared tho, bike work is a spectator sport.



Maybe bring some spare levers, cables and a tube or two.
