Some would rather keep to their small groups and talk about "community", than take a chance and discover their preconcieved notions are wrong. That's just the way it is sometimes.
Really, tell us more oh wise one

Oh shit thats right, this is taking this thread off topic, I'll STFU

You've shown up a few times.

Are you saying that there isn't a small vocal crowd that has never made an effort to come to a WetFest?

When people make the effort, the sniping tends to drop off, JMO.

So,,as I see it,,we need to start raising funds to hire Tony Smiley, and convince him to attend,, and we'll need to provide him with a bike for some kind of ride,street or dirt for the day,, and everything else will appear magically!
Or did you miss the positive that happened at TourPros?
Rock and roll,
drugs and alcohol,
motorsickles and guns,
loaded users in all aspects!
What can go wrong?!
Go BIG or go home!
you race to win, fuck the other guy!
What you win,,
is dictated by your own aspirations and expectations.
Wets-messed!
carve my initials into your calf!
Listen to Bebe!
search the stores for brats in flat patty form.
take yer dog for a walk, and let the fucker off the leash when no one is around!

Wouldn't you have to provide him with a half-dozen, so he could ride them all at once?

Most of the trails are two track, but there is some really sweet single track too


We do a loop once a year on the KDX's that runs about 130 miles with a refuel, rebeer and eat stop at the half way point

I'll talk with Tony about playing this event, wherever it is, I 'm sure with enough notice he'll be happy to come and party with us....and good luck getting him to ride a moto, he is terribly frightened by them - due to a really bad accident in his youth that put him in the hospital where he actually redlined - obviously he survived, but he is definitely in the "motorcycles are dangerous" camp.....

Yer try'n to hard, and yer gunna make it complicated................Dag has stepped up and offered to burn some shit on the grill, and if we have it close enough to the coast, I'll honor his request and make some crab melts

I don't know how Nestucca ORV would be for a (small) crowd, but it's worth checking out, and there are other options also including the ol'stand-by (which I think would be the easiest).

Dag, if your serious, you pick the spot.
