That place sounds cool to me, but I've never been.

The place was great, but the riding was lacking. There was a distinct drop in attendance the last two years at Skamakowa.

Maybe Link was practicing for WetFest 2013?
I think the drop in attendance was a good thing.................but there was still to many people there

And as I've said before, the riding isn't epic, but IMHO it ain't to bad.



it's big bike friendly















I think Sandy might be a good location for a WetFest

Wetfest is dead.

Long live Wetfest.

The name change was the beginning.


This, is the end...

If everybody is in for a given amount of rental space/reservation costs, we can find something with enuff room and all the warm and fuzzy comforts as well.
Who knows of a favorite campsite capable of hosting 600 WetFest attendees?

Ideas?
No gravel pits!,,shade would be nice,, but grass for tent pitching is a must.
water,
toilets,
showers,,a plus!
beer available within 10 miles or so,
what do we need?
Marsters Springs out of Paisley is not big enuff, Page springs out of Frenchglen is big enuff if we took the whole park, but no showers.
Topsy Grade to the south, has great riding, but limited camping, no showers.
Somebody knows somebody with enuff room, and a creek we can pee in,,spout off!
Ideas?!!!!!

Stopped here in the car with the kids this summer, middle of nowhere but that's the idea, yes?
Thought at the time "this looks like a good adv group site"

Flat mtn is close by which is a huge private single track area owned by Starker Forestry. They have a permit entry system and are very restrictive ( sweet trails though). McBee is a great place to camp and we have staged many Moto Campouts there back in the 70's and 80's. And before you get any ideas...No I don't have the time to pull this together myself.

Just a thought. Too bad it's in Worshington.

A friend hosts the Eagle riders camp-out here, I stopped by. Very cool spot, awesome views and great stone fire pits and this little cabin / shelter.

No showers, no electricity for your sleeping machines.

But it is too close!

OK, I'll see if I can book the Motel 6 on 30th Powell, next door is a empty lot to pitch a tent, and place to get food and drinks with live entertainment (caution NSFW) http://www.safarishowclub.com/

We did a Bohemia company party/picanic at that place back in the early 90s...it was a long ways away but it seems like it was a good party. I don't think anybody camped...we just had deisgnated drivers to get us home I suppose
