I think I'll take the more scenic pace on this one unless you want to give me a bluff to call and come along.

oh, and IN

Yeah, no bluff calling needed. Nothing to prove, just riding epic trails at a consistent pace, and drinking beers at camp with friends! Sleep, arise wondering why you chose to do something as stupid as this, motivate yourself to get back on the bike, and do it all over again. By Day 3 you will just want to swear off motorcycles for the rest of year, there may be crying, and you will leave camp riding side saddle because it hurts too much to sit! But once you are standing and riding some good trails, all is good and the smile returns. That is why we do this! I think....

No no, I don't want to miss out on the camping this time. Nor do I want to wake up at 4am again. I'll write a Roadbook for each day, that should keep us busy.

Is your camper done yet?

Drew, I'm bummed we didn't get any Alley-oop pictures or video! I was oddly proud of how well that shoveling technique worked out.

Before.



During.



After.

I honestly don't know how many hundreds of trees I've cut or how many hundreds of feet of trail I have shoveled but I have to admit I have never even thought of that. Next year when the knee is in one piece I will be forced to out do that. I don't know how, but I know where and it's gonna be cool. Game on!!

Sounds like fun! Nope camper got superseded by a bathroom remodel. Life always gets in the way of fun.

You know if you want to at least be around some fun trails, see some suffering and enjoy some campfire beers, I think there is still an opening or two on the camp crew. We can even repeatedly push you off your chair and laugh at you, so you will feel like you did the ride! Just offering!

I'm going to try to make this. . . so put me down for a "maybe, with all the fixin's". . . and by that I mean partyin, and eatin, and Monkey Butt cream (I know, I know, no double dippin in the butt cream).

So, just to make sure I have this all f'd up:
I bring the goods for me, and to share: food, tent and bag (not sharing), beer, stuff and things. . . and the sag wagon officials fly it from camp to camp? For reals?
TSA isn't involved, right. . . cause I'm pretty damned sure I wouldn't pass any screening.

I may show up with some refreshments and my effervescent personality when you least expect it, but only if you promise to push me off my chair every now and then!!!

Will do.

Yes, bring a bike in good running condition. Sort it out ahead of time. Have what you need for a solid day ride as far as tubes, snacks, tools, mojo and pixie dust.
Snacks for camp if you have special needs or preferences.
Keep your camp kit small, like chair, tent, bag, pad, basic bag for clothes. No Taj Mahal of camps. You won't have the energy to set much up. Small cooler for beers, usually these get combined so that there aren't tons of coolers. In all honesty, most evenings have traditionally gone like this...
"Roll into camp after dark, between 9-11pm, shovel amazing food into your pie hole, drink about two beers, fall asleep in your chair, roll onto your pad or tent if you had energy to set it up, pass out and not even move all night, hear a motor start up at about 6am, give me a pissed off look, wake up, eat, prep, whine, and do it all over again." One night we got to camp early and actually drank, ate, sang songs (literally) and stayed up late.
Food-it sounds like we will have Cortney and Tracey doing the camp gig again. If so we are very lucky. In the past we have chipped in collectively to cover food costs. If for some reason they can't make it, I will figure something out. If they do make it, I know Cortney likes tequila, Randy can tell us what Tracey prefers. Everyone try to pitch in on dishes, help wherever possible, etc.. They really make this type of ride possible!
I am still a novice GPS dude, so don't expect much there, but collectively we know the area pretty well. I have done 3/4 of what we have planned, and I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express so I feel pretty good about this!

Feel free to post up any questions, or PM me if you wish! Be glad to have you along!

Yep, Cort's in for sure, and Tina is flying in again to help. Cort has started brainstorming for meals, so if anyone has dietary restrictions or preferences, speak now.

Like Trevor mentioned, try to keep your equipment it to a minimum as we will probably only have 1 or 2 vehicles for sag this year.

The bins from Walmart work good for pit packs and camping stuff, and it makes it easy for the camp crew to load/unload.

We typically bring 1 spare set of take-off tires (18 & 21) just in case. I think the first year everyone brought a set, but to date we have not needed any (knock on wood).

A good tree saw works too, it's how I do my snowmen in the winter time in the front yard.

Damn! Did you see that? Yep, that gauntlet has been thrown!







The worse thing would be to nurse a hangover at Orvis...It could be worse!
