I would be willing to allow you the opportunity to do your dog and pony show and would be interested in seeing it myself. But I cannot guarantee many would participate in the viewing. They tend to have other things on their mind when they get to camp. Last time we tried something similar, I'd say about 10-12 folks took advantage of it. This is a low key deal and nobody is required to do anything they don't want to do. We like it that way. So, you would get those interested in what you are talking about and that is it. If folks chime in and say, "hey I'd like to hear that" and enough do so to make it worth your while. It is up to you at that point.

Sorry, shouldn't have mentioned the tour company. It IS what I do to be able to stay in Peru. But what I was willing to share was about the rides we do among friends in South America.

About every 3 years (since 1998) we do an EPIC (at least 30 day) ride together. Grant Johnson asked me to share at the HU rally in NC 2 years ago about taking my 16 yr old son on his 'coming of age' trip in 2007 on dirt bikes for 10,000 km around South America. I think they enjoyed it by the enthusiastic response. In 2010 my 21-yr old daughter joined us on a 36-day ride all over Andes and Amazon of Peru. THAT'S what I want to promote! The relationships formed on the trail are the most important thing!

This January a group of us are chasing the Dakar 2013 down the coast of Peru, so that trip will be fresh for the telling this coming September. And my residence in Maine is not too far away....

Our next friends epic trip will be a 66-day across 4 South American countries, catching a World Cup Soccer game in Brazil, riding to the "Lost World" plateau on the border of Bolivia/Brazil (the place that spawned the idea of 'Jurassic Park') and to Iguazu Falls in Argentina/Brazil just mention a few.

Or I could do a free (short) seminar for the ADVer dreaming about doing their own version of the famed Alaska to Tierra del Fuego run. I know there is beer to be drunk, but maybe some 'dream catching' in the middle of it all would be good too!

Cheers! Toby

Yea, the ribs are healing well, clavicle is healing, the ankle is in a cast and will undoubtedly require lots of therapy. I got out of the rehab facility Wednesday, it is nice to be home! Looking forward to the 2013 riding season!

Thanks for asking, hope you are and remain well. Everyone seemed to enjoy the '12 Cromag, and i know your efforts had a lot to do with it.

Still looking

For feedback on the leanto idea and proposed bidding rules. I will give it a few more days, but if I do not hear some more yeah or nay on it, it is going to stay as a FCFS policy. PM me if you are uncomfortable with commenting publicly. It will go no further than to give me an idea if this is popular or not.

I do not want people to be mad that the procedure changed and not let me know that in advance. That is why this has been floated out there early. If you think it is a good idea as a fundraiser for the charity, I want to know that too.

Mr. Ray #1, missed you this year.

do that. Bryant Rd and Randolph Gap are not-quite GS friendly but good new places to go, was really glad I brought the DR this year (Well, I wouldn't ride them on MY gs but might try 'em on YOUR gs ).

You can ride all day without getting more than 15 miles from the park

Plus a pickup truck is a very good way to carry a beer cooler
