I love it out there. Fill the tank and off you go. Never hard to find the Highway, just head north! Pick a road over the horizon and see where it leads! Half those 2 tracks aren't on maps.
That one is south of Brothers.

FOR SURE!!

I was a first timer last year, had an XR400 there, so i didn't do any big road trips, just local windy stuff & up on top of the plateau around the Millican flats area, where you can putz around or go hard into the sandy trails & OHV area...check out last years photos, you'll be in! Plenty of riders do this & just stay local to camp.

Get back to camp, get into comfortable clothes, grab the fishin pole & ride along the river trying your luck.

OH YEAH...I'M 'IN'.

Jack Rabbit chasing , coyote scaring, coupla hooligans!
ain't it grand!?,,see that point over there,we can ride to it!

when I grew up over that way we'd say,,if you can see it,,you can find a way to ride to it,,that's what's wrong with this side of the big hills,,ya can't see anything!
Oh, and Squishy's point of,,"always pack a fishing implement",,fresh caught trout in all them streams!
I SO hate the cold anymore,,it just cripples my hands. I'll check the weather, and I wouldn't tell YFF"s if I wuzgunna show or not anyway,,so there too!
I'll promise to go if Linkweewee gets a bike and goes too,,how's that?

You might, since you're gonna show up on Thursday and take two days off. We're not putting up with you showing up on tthe last day of something any more. You have to show up early and blow off work like the rest of us losers from now on beeotch!!!

I love camping, so that part seems fine.
I have about 250 miles range. Are there fueling stations within the area?
Like peterman says......"YOU" were already invited
Fuel is 17 miles away in Prineville, and many people won't use 250 miles worth all weekend. You can keep plenty busy riding all day and go just 50 miles if you want, or haul ass for 200 on sweet dirt/gravel and hit another town for gas if that's what you want.
No worries here, just show up with a full tank, and the rest of the weekend will unfold!

Calling all motorhome / travel trailer attendees.......
We need a volunteer with an extra bunk for peterman!!

A campfire is just not the same without you, man.
If we come with the enlosed trailer, call it yours for the night, but I may show up solo on Punkin, so I can't guarantee it.

Calling all motorhome / travel trailer attendees !!!!

We will make you feel at home! Anyone's welcome! I was a noob to these ADV gatherings until:
I had ridden for years (10 to be exact),"alone and afraid" to join in with these guys...So I bit the bullet and went to my first ADV rally and I popped my cherry at the 2012 Spring Brake!
Now some of my best friends are from the ADV crew!
As tough as we inmates seem, we are are really just a bunch of homeless vagabonds longing for a free campfire and some other lost souls to commiserate with!
They really are a great "family" of riders! It is all about what you make of it!
Fair warning:
By your second ADV gathering, you will be well seasoned and fair game, so you'll have to grow a pair and get ready to roll with it!
Bring firewood, a chair, and something to drink!
Be ready to be cold and wet all the way to sitting in the sun in shorts for lunch!
You just never know what the weather brings!

Alrighty then. I have obtained the necessary shifts off work so I may attend. This should be educational :(

I have ridden over in that area during the winter and early spring many times but have never made it to one of the group rides on this forum and would like to make it to this one. I usually ride out of Millican Plateau in the winter and spring when East Fort rock has too much snow and finally made it over to the Crooked River Canyon this past year and wow. Very nice!

Yes, I agree with pigpen. Loads of fun, fishing, hiking, shooting targets and other fun activities for your enjoyment. There may even be a spare bunk in some of the RVs. I'll be looking for a warm dry place to sleep. This will be my third Spring Break and hope for many more.

Pretty good advice, PP, and exactly how we all feel.
This group (the WHOLE ADV group) provides some of the best times many of us have had in a long time, and we just wanna share it. With everybody

Sorry AJ, but this picture just cracks me up. It's SO Crooked River. Even the Jungle Man zombie in the background looks freezing.

I don't think I'll be there this year, a bike for me is still a ways off but I plan on being back as soon as I can.
