Well not sure I can repeat the cart wheel dismount again last time cost to much. Also I have a team ride two weeks after this and I do not want to let down the other team mates. So the best I can do is ride smart and drink hard
So are we sharing a tent or do I have to bring my own

hay I would email or send a PM gsstampeder we are looking for a few good people to fill a site. The more orange the better is all I say and some blue would be nice too.
Just add beer and snoring then everyone is happy

No.

Thursday and Saturday just show up and pay.

Friday...campground website shows the campsite is full. This is because everyone booked a site and all the sites are taken. Each site can accomodate more people than what folks reserved them for. AKA...Joe Blow reserved a site for one person. That site is now taken. Each site can hold 8 people but the website does not allow you to go back and cahnge your reservation from 1 person to 8 people (bad website).

We are trying to get ahold of the campsite owners to explain the situation and inform them a bunch more people are coming and we'll ask them how they want to handle that.

Stay tuned, we will get it resolved.

Short answer...dont worry about booking campsites

Sounds good to me. I hate planning things.

On a side note. Are there gas stations ever 150 miles? Agent orange is a pig.

And final question, how long is this ride in miles? We Americans are frightened and cornfused by the metric system.

Google is a friend. 1 mile = 1.609344 kilometers so 150 miles is equal to 241.4016 kilometers and if the gas stations are more then that then I am in trouble too. For me riding the 690 easy on the throttle I can get 225km or 139.8085 miles, but riding hard is about 180km or 111.8468 miles
Hope this helps

Gas

Lots of gas on or close to the track and will be marked with a waypoint. Longest stretch about 150km(93miles).
