We are camping stealth, no showers, no frills, and no $, except for gas/food/booze.
We'll also be riding portions of the NW famous original 1854 "Barlow Road"
and Central Oregon's "Santiam Wagon Road" from the 1860's
(google them, if you don't know)
The "IN" list........
1) Apple Jam
6) Cyclops Motorsports
7) Konflict Motorsports
11) Nut Clutch
23) Mud Bucket
24) MB's bud Claude
25) MB's bud Jack
26) MB's bud Mark
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,
...to 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,
...so we can get back there early-ish Friday morning
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
