if you motel it, you'll be missing a vital part of WARPED.

and it's RAIN.

WTF. no big deal.:dood

and there are HOT showers at camp.


rain jacket and rain pants at army surplus costs nothin.

Agreed. :D Plus, my riding gear is rain gear, so it'll do double duty. It might smell a bit by the end of the weekend but I have a washing machine at home. :D

Ok you miscreants... TOPS you can fit 4 in my motorhome, that's if no one wants to move...

On the plus side I did buy a 25 cup coffee pot (actually asked Santa Claus for one, just for the rally/camping) so if requested I can have a pot going all day and I will have coffee in the mornings... bring your cup by.

Today's storm is/was supposed to be the big dump and as I type we had .36". It is currently a warm rain @ 52 degrees.

Watching the forecast, Thursday we're good, some rain on Friday then good for the remainder of the weekend... with next Tuesday being in the upper 70's :evil

I'm bringing the easy-up and some additional tarps we can possibly string up. The awning won't be much of an option. Like I said, it's on it's last leg and any heavy wind and I'll be rolling it up... sorry...

Just wanted to say
 
There is no shame it getting a good nights sleep (especially if it is raining all night).

And just for the record...I have not slept in my tent since I was ( shit I can't even remember).
I have an RV now so why the hell would I sleep in a tent.
When the weather gets bad I close the door and turn up the heater..!!
I would have brought it..but there is no room for it.

I plan to ride all day friday (rain or shine) all day saturday (rain or shine)
and most of the day Sunday (hopefully at least one day without rain).

So I want to be well rested at the start of the day...
Rincon...Check...done it
Kennedy Meadows...Check..done it

Single track....I will be on it bright and early...Dont want to miss a thing...

Except maybe the rain if I can avoid it. :jump

not a LOT of snow, but still icy conditions. I've been over that pass on street tires in all kinda nasty weather and when its freezing, believe me, discretiion IS the better part of valor and going around is a _very_ _good_ _idea_.

I remember taking the GS up there one year trying to get to DVD. LMFAO. There was SOOO much ice on that road. I must fell over 3 times before I turned around at probably 4k feet. No WAY would I make it the downhill.

Riding on pure ice with 2 wheels on a loaded GS....:rofl:rofl better off just dragging the bike.

Second only to the ice up there is the sand. It's a great road when it's clean and clear. But it can deteriorate pretty quick when the weather turns. It should be a great route on sunday.

Coolness. I was planning to be there around noon as well. Seize ya manana.

My thoughts exactly. I've ridden and camped in much worse than a little bit of rain. Sure, setting up a tent while it's muddy and getting dark on Friday evening won't be my favorite thing in the world. It's all part of the adventure, right? :evil

I think at four people we would be maxed out. (So room for one more)

???? NOT if the rooms are small like @ kernville inn! two beds and barley enough room for two people

Think about it a hot shower after riding in the rain all day - a roof over our heads and a good nights sleep.

:clap:clap:clap

.
kernville inn across the street from camp is $150 friday night.

wofford heights is farthest from camp:huh and not a very glamourus town(not even a place to eat, unless u consider the gas station), stay in kernville if u are gonna get a room!

If you must get a room for Friday, book one at the Kern Lodge. RIGHT next door to Kern River Brewing. The lady who runs the place is a sweetie and The ZRX club I'm a member of stays there every year. Great Place. But only book a room there if you are scared of rain.. RAIN is soooooo scary!!!

For those who do not wish to stay in a WET/COLD tent, IF the weather sucks, you can get a room right behind the campground, i believe the name is falling water or falls, stayed there MANY years ago, nice people. 760-376-2242 As i remember they DO NOT allow guest to visit, may have changed though.

RIDE ON!
