I know where to buy a truckload for $40.00 in Ventura county but my truck is already going to be full with my personal firewood and other gear.
save the receipt and you'll get reimbursed by Joel at the event... This way, we all pay for it but do not have to haul it... It's worked out each year this way...

I have a 10'x10' ez-up some one can borrow provided they can pick it up and bring it back from my apartment. I'm riding in so I cannot bring it with me.

I have a not easy up. It's a Coleman Geosport shelter, five sided and a lot more wind stable. I'll most likely be riding though so we'd need to coordinate delivery.

The GSA can do a lot of the rides in DV, it just makes certain things a lot harder if you don't know how to handle it or understand the different lines you have to take. If you have trouble in sand and rocks with the XChallenge, those troubles are magnified on a bigger bike. Plus, if you're crashing or dropping it a lot, picking up a GSA will beat you down quickly, causing you to crash more.

In the end, it's the monkey, not the banana, that makes the difference.

thanks for the offer, we don't want you hauling that extra load when if the locals can take care of this.

Hey Gregg,

Pm me that number.

Joel,

I have to bring 3 bikes so, hard to say if I'll have room for firewood, but I'll try.

I'll have to drive by and get the number. I didn't save it. It's up in the hills above Moorpark. The guy cleared a lemon grove and is selling this large skip loader bucket full for $40.00. It almost completely filled the back of my truck piled up to the roof of the shell. It will fill a full size long bed American pickup bed completely to the top of the bed rails. There won't be any room for bikes. You might want to split it between four or five trucks.

My Truck which it almost filled

The wood is where Highway 23 (Grimes Cyn Rd.) turns north going up to the pass over to Fillmore, at the intersection of Broadway Rd. It's a large skip loader parked there with the bucket full of wood. You have to call the guy and he will come out and start the machine and dump it into your truck or trailer.

I won't have a chance to drive by there till tomorrow afternoon to get the phone number.

Yes it is at around 18 inch lengths. It's not split but is small diameter. I used it twice now camping and it burns fine.
