2013 PNW Ladies Adventure Ride

July 26-28
Departing from Mustangshelly's place early Friday morning
Destination unknown
Hey, it's supposed to be an adventure, right??



In keeping with the spirit of ADVENTURE RIDING we will take a scenic ride of mixed off-road , pavement and maaaaybe just a little challenging off-road on our way to a camping location that is yet to be determined, stopping to smell the flowers and take pictures along the way . Yep, a ride n' camp ! If you can't make it to Friday morning's departure, you can meet us Friday night at the as yet undetermined camping location. No, it's not a super secret location. I just haven't figured out the details yet, as I have a few months to prepare. This will be NEW RIDER friendly, as I myself am no hard-core, ride-by-the-seat-of-your-pants kinda gal. Only requirements are that you are , ride (or crash) motorcycles, and want to spend some time getting to know like-minded ladies.

Camping and dinner at my place on Thursday night, of course!

Updates

Courier service for our supplies (tents, food, sleeping bags) will be provided, as well as a cook stove/BBQ set up for our arrival in camp.
Any favorite cold beverages that are here at my place by Friday morning departure will also magically appear at camp in a cooler. How sweet is that??
There is a nice store in Parkdale for food if anyone needs to pick up some items before we head out Friday morning.
No


Friday we will make our way over the hill to Tygh Valley and camp there for the night. Camping will be $7.50/person. Showers are $1.00 in quarters. There is an opportunity to go to a cool swimming hole this evening if anyone is interested, nice dual sport road and creek crossing included, as well as a bit of a steep scramble on foot to get down to the hole. PM me for details if you plan to meet us Friday night at the campground.

Saturday we head to Timothy Lake via Barlow Road where we have a small group campsite reserved. This site will accommodate 18 people total.
Plan on pitching in a couple of bones for camping this night as well. I am keeping my eye on the number of gals that want to go on this ride. If it looks like we will have more than 18, as the time gets closer, I will look into some alternatives for Saturday night camping.

Have fun ladies.

Between all the pedicures, pillow fights and skinny dipping, I'm not sure we will have much time for riding

Ok. It's July.

Holy crap, it's July. Not really sure how that happened, but I'm really happy. I love summer.


Honestly, I was starting to get a little discouraged about my riding skills and wondering if I should back out like a chicken since I haven't been on dirt in a while (street, yes. Dirt, no. Boo.), but reading through this thread reminded me why I said yes in the first place! Also, the downed bikes helped. Story of my life.

I hope I'm not too late to say yes to a shirt and I cannot wait for this gathering! Already have the time off. Watched the boss man put it on the calendar and everything!

Scarlet, still thinking of riding out together?


I think I'll drag that man of mine out for a ride before he heads to flight school.

Put me on the fence

I have this ride on my calendar and another to go to a BMW ralley near me with my friend Maureen and her MotoGuizi. But... she also has a Sherpa . Has been threatening to sell it due to trouble finding people to ride with. If I can convince her to go, it would be sometime Friday afternoon to get there in a truck with trailer hauling bikes. Wondering how that would affect your camping plans?
