Spring Break on the Crooked River March 27-30, 2014
Spring Break on the Crooked River March 27-30, 2014.
It's that time again ADVers; Time to start thinking of Spring before we all go nucking futs. I know what some of you are thinking: A Central Oregon Campout?.......in MARCH?!?!? "You must be crazy" . Well, Jimmy Buffet's logic would suggest that "If we weren't all Crazy, we'd all go insane". Remember, he's the same guy that says "It's always 5:00 somewhere". I think he's on to something. No, I'm SURE he's on to something. Have you EVER seen him NOT smiling? (or partying? ). We all must have our idols.
Place: Chimney Rock Campground; South-end Group Area
South of Prineville on Hwy 27, heading down towards the Prineville Reservoir, is a nine mile section of BLM land designated as the Lower Crooked Wild & Scenic River with 11 campgrounds with NO FEES before April 1st!!!!!! Last year we got lucky with the weather. REALLY lucky 'Twas awesome sunny & warm Spring weather. The other years? Ummmm...Not so much. But, it's never really sucked with the right attitude.....and the right whiskey (is there a wrong whiskey?)
Here's the official camp-out rules:
Ya got all that?
No "list". No "maybes". No "on-the-fence". No shit.
Come and have fun....or not. Whatever. Y'all are welcome. Even YOU Room for Motorhomes, room for Toy Haulers, Pickups with trailers, room for tents, room for wives, room for girlfriends, mistresses and dogs. We're an accommodating bunch, we just wanna have fun. Millican OHV is less than 10 miles away, Oregon's ONLY non-paved State Hwy begins just South of the reservoir, sweet twisty & empty pavement, rocky & muddy goodness and buttery smooth dirt are everywhere around us. Big Bike rides, little bike rides, sport bikes and sport tourers. Even Harleys will find good stuff (if you can handle the nightime campfire heckling). There is no wrong bike (is there ever?). Go 10 miles, go 500 miles. Then come back to camp and enjoy the company of others with similar attitudes.
This is year #4, with as many years left as I'm still riding. And/or breathing.
OK, then......Who's IN????
Links to past years...
Who's got pictures of past years?
Post 'em up!!
"got no problem with keeping truly roadless areas as wild....
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)
