Update and Info

Ok, just posted the potential dates. I will call tomorrow to double check availability and update as necessary. Please help spread the word.

For the uninformed, we use the following as base camp (Ocean Pond):

http://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/osceo...75104&actid=29

The ride will take us through Osceola National Forest. Per norm, plated bike, blah blah blah. Last year we had 2 great group rides at a reasonable pace on Friday and Saturday. Would recommend a bike in the 650 and lower range. KLRs/DRs make it just fine. We didn't hit any super deep sand last year, but sure we'll find some water This event is aimed towards just having fun, eating food, and enjoying the experience.

Food wise; people generally bring plenty of stuff. Ask everyone bring something to contribute. The location has several grills, so last year we did everything from chicken wings to burgers. Hopefully, Eloy will be there with the dump cake.

I know one gent guided the Saturday ride last year...haven't heard from him. Anyone still have the tracks? I am going to try and get a little pre-ride in the last weekend of January to check it out.

If first weekend is 2/1-2/2, why is it not listed?

Or because it would start on 1/31, that doesn't count?

Selfishly, I can't do that weekend because of a commitment that early Saturday

And, a lot of people just did the Polar Bear rally this last weekend; want to give some breathing room for those with limited off time and those with wives or something like that.

Makes sense.

I guess there are more things happening in January than used to be.

I found out this morning that I am untasked for a few weeks, I voted for the second weekend, but I would be in for the 2/7-9 as well.

Somehow I miss meeting Motomike14 this weekend. Will have to rectify this at BQF!

That was the biggest complaint for the Polar Bear Rally, no dump cake
