I'll PM you all with directions/address a couple of weeks before.
(let me know if I got syntax wrong on your screen names, so PMs will be easy for me)

I think this large group (and more!) will be manageable enough, I know my route well,
and will have tried & true actual GPS (GPX/Garmin) tracks.
I think we'll likely split into 5 or so groups, with a leader for each, keep the caravan (bikavan?) moving more efficiently.

We'll get to the KTM Rally Thursday Evening when Registration starts.
I have a VERY close-by forest dispersed campspot picked out, we can get back there early-ish Friday morning

Oh yeah.....

WetFest is the weekend before, and several of us plan to leave from Wenatchee on Sunday.
We'll take portions of the WABDR down to Hood River,
then get to my place early Tuesday evening for a relaxing BBQ and a campfire.
...Then We'll leave Wednesday morning for the dirty two-day trip to Bend

On the other hand, if it has been logged or mined and roads already exist,,
...then that land should be open for public use" (peterman)
