2015 Wallowa Valley Adventure Jamboree

9th Annual
Wallowa Valley Adventure Jamboree
June 11-14, 2015


Log House RV Park and Campground
66258 Lewiston Hwy (Hwy 3)
Enterprise, Oregon 97828
1-877-426-4027
http://loghouservpark.com/

Tent camping: No reservations needed, just state your IN, show up, and pay at the office when you get there. It will be $12 per night.


RV camping:Please call the Log House and make a reservation and for rates.
1-877-426-4027


What's Happening: ADV riders are great at entertaining themselves so things are left to happen as they happen and that's part of the fun. Any organizing happening is always up for change.



Rides: Self-guided rides with suggestions available. Remember this is ADV and as such things are VERY loosely organized which is part of the fun. Check the white board in the group area for rides or post on the white board that you are looking for someone to ride with.  If you are new to this and don't know anyone yet find me and I will introduce you around.
 


Meals:This year meals will be on your own. There have been a few ideas kicked around but nothing concrete so please don't depend on food in camp. Enterprise is only about a mile away with a couple good Mexican Restaurants and Lear's Pub and Grill is awesome for breakfast, lunch, & dinner. There are a few other places as well. Joseph is about 7 miles away with more options.


 
Coffee:
We will have hot coffee every morning for everyone. Nothing fancy just regular coffee. Bring your coffee mug so we don’t have to use disposables.



White Board:By popular demand and because I try to make everyone happy there will be a white board available to write ride invitations, etc. on. It will be hung either on the fence outside of the coffee area or inside that area. Is that vague or what?



Group Photo Sat 8:30 PM: Our tradition has been to get a group photo each year which is always fun. This year Double Thumper has agreed to take our photo again. Meet in front of the office at 8:30 pm Sat. evening.


Breakfast suggestion:
Last year Steve had Lear's Pub and Grill open for breakfast for us at 6:00 am. In the past he has been the only one there and just lets us do a self serve on coffee and water while he takes care of getting orders and cooking them. He makes one heck of a breakfast too.
111 W Main St, Enterprise, OR



Supplies:
There is a well stocked Safeway in town for any grocery and
drink items you might want.


Beer:
If you enjoy breweries there is one of those in town too:
http://terminalgravitybrewing.com/ you can get a good meal there as well.


Motorcycle shop: Just in case. Did you forget your chain lube, need a new tire, chain, break something while out riding? You can almost see the shop from the campground and these folks are great. They open at 8:00 so the riding day isn't half over before you can get in.
http://outlawmotorsportsinc.net/


There is just about anything you might want or need within 2 miles of camp. Including a good hospital if needed - hopefully it won't be needed but it's nice to know it's there if it is.


If there is something I missed just ask.

While at the campout
A number of years back I put together pages for the popular routes that people enjoy while in the area. Of course there is a lot more to find and ride just by getting out there and going.

Go here for the basic routes: Ride Ideas
There is a link to a gpx file for each route but don't totally trust it just use it as a guideline. There were a few mistakes when I created them and I won't guarantee their accuracy but it's a good base.
Click on the name of the routes and they will take you to a page with a picture of a map, a few details like mileage, fuel availability, etc. and pictures.
Ride Plans while there:

1 is a fairly long ride. We would need to leave early.
It would be a fairly fast paced ride with at least one outlook and with any luck an Indian museum that I have had a hard time finding.
This would be taking a fast scenic route biased mostly on gravel but with a fair amount of slab to get there.
Last time I took this loop I saw turkeys (besides the ones I was riding with), deer, elk, bear, badger and raptors.
I will see if I can put together a map and estimate mileage etc.

The other ride is exploratory. I found a road once in my wife's jeep. We were low on gas and I was not able to see where it came out. This may not be big bike friendly.

I will be riding a Silver 09 650 V-Strom with Touratech panniers and will be tent camping.
Look me up!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ride Planning on the way there:
If you are looking for others to ride to the gathering with you or while you are there post it and I will add it here. That way it won't get lost in the posts along the way and people can refer back to this spot to see who is doing what (if they have posted it).

Missoula, MT area riders:
Siorc will be riding from Missoula, MT on Wed returning Mon, and would be happy to coordinate with others for the ride.

From the Portland, OR area:

I'll be on a smaller bike (690E), plan on camping every night (unless rain), and plan to move "fastish" on the dirt.

Backup plan is to ride south and do OBDR to HC.

Backup, backup plan is to ride Black Dog, then meander west to HC

If anybody is interested in joining me, or have a similar "dirty" plan from PDX to HC let me know. Big bikes okay, if you know how to ride the beast off-road. Got a few fence sitters thinking about joining, but not sure I've got committments from anyone yet.

That is Zubs and my plan, Black Dog then head east to Hells Canyon. Look us up at the Black Dog, Scott.

Zub just got a shinny new 690 yesterday. Not sure if he will take that or his Orange 990.

Me, I'll be on my Black 950.

Or we might go all the way to Clarkson and do Cold Springs, if we start early enough.

Others are welcome to ride with from Kennewick or surrounding areas.

Ummmm.
I sure did miss last year.
I love this place, roads left unridden and all that rot.
But, as much as I hate to turn a once-was-auto-in into this......
...I'm gonna have to be on the fence for this year for a bit, until I figger a few things out. Friday Night Fajitas for all are sitting right there on the fence with me. The Wallowa, Imnaha, and Hells Canyons continue to call me, but...so does my new boss. We'll see......
