Stopped by the Granite Store this past July. Place is for sale but still operating; closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Good to know! Thanks for all the tips and shared fuel maps!

For those interested in the ride this Saturday (likely the final pre-OBCDR meetup and ride), I would like to move it from Salem to Dallas if you don't mind. That way we can all avoid the lousy freeway riding as much as possible, and it will be a quick jaunt into the woods after the meetup (working on building a route right now).
If this works for everyone, how about meeting at Starbucks in Dallas at 10:00am this Saturday?
Starbucks

Dallas, OR 97338



Sorry Circus...the 9th is the only day I have on a weekend before our trip. Maybe you and I can grab a ride after work during the week? (I'm currently unemployed and available for weekday trips)

I'd guess those that are still planning on joining us on the OBDR are watching this thread and the clock. At this point it's Jim, I Don and Charles that are "in"? Since others have mentioned here in this thread in the past, it would sure be nice if you're planning on going, would post here with their commitment? It is, after all, only 2.5 weeks away.

Some of us plan to head to Sisters on Sunday August 24th to settle in, but the ride will start in the morning on Monday August 25th. The route is South on Route 3, East on Route 2, North on Route 5 and West on Route 4, back to Sisters. We are planning on taking our time and expect it to take us roughly 6 days.

May I join you guys on Sat? I've been wanting to ride out that way for some time now. I graduated from WOU. I've been watching this thread for awhile now and as much as I would love to do the OBCDR with you guys I can't as I'll be at Camp Rilea that week.

Fine with me. We'll be chatting for a little while about the other trip to start off, but then we're off to the woods. I don't have a full route planned, just looked at riding out toward the reservoir, then spurring off onto logging roads from there...

Any objections to another tag along rider for this Saturday? Being that I live in Salem, Dallas is just a hop, skip and jump from me. I've been following this thread for a while, but I'm unable to get the vacation time off for the last week of Aug.

Later,
Ren

Sounds good! I'll be the 5'9" portly dude on an XR650L who looks like robocop. :) (first time my new pressure suit and other gear will be worn in public)
