    Officially interested in the Dug Bar run! :evil
    I will ride conservatively, as I am sorting out my KTM's front end...:D

    I have a flight to catch Sunday, so will leave the group Saturday morning to head home. (At least I have Thurs and Fri to ride!) Looking forward to the meet & greet and shared time in the saddle! :D

    Two days is better than no days! :clap see you all soon! :evil

    That gives everyone else one more year to learn where all the great roads are and to be able to show you the good stuff.

    Enjoy camping with your kids. They are only kids once and family time is a great way to spend a childhood. :clap

    Hi Ladybug,
    I will be leaving Boise next Thursday the 14th to attend my FIRST year and very HAPPY to say the least. I also have room to haul gear or another BIKE for anyone out of the Boise area. I have a 16 ft. enclosed Utility trailer that I will be camping out of. The reason is I have seen through pictures here that it can rain ALOT during this gathering,also I have ridin most of the Idaho side to get to the gathering so I will save my tires and chain life for the FUN part that I have not yet seen.

    Looking forward to meeting alot of people and putting the names here on ADV. to the faces of these Hooligans.

    A BIG THANKS TO YOU LADYBUG FOR MAKING THIS HAPPEN EACH YEAR.....

    At this point me and Bear69 are maybes... we will both be getting off work that morning at about 07:30 after a 13 hour shift. Do you know where you are planning to camp? I have a package I would like to drop off at Tour Pro's house.

    We are going to sleep good that night :nod

    About ready for a fun week.
    Forks redone. :evil Smooth as ever.
    I only have the contraband left to secure under the false floor. :evil
    For the first timers, make sure you bring a good sleeping bag. It can get cold. :deal
    Hells Canyon is an incredible place. Probably like a mini Colorado. :lol3 Maybe better.

    Would a power strip or two be helpful? Sounds like it so will pack in. How about an ez-up shelter?

    Power strip sounds like a great idea. I don't think the shelter is needed, as I recall Brian had a couple he could set up. I was just trying to remind everyone it is a well sorted facility, but bring your own stuff just in case. Thanks IDRIDR.

    Okay, I'll leave the shelter at home. That leaves room for a little more firewood :kboom:kboom

    Rain? Someone thinks we might have rain? well, I work hard at having a little of something of everything for everyone. I enjoy our wetside friends but I also know they can't be left out of the water too long or they dry out and shrivel up. We wouldn't wnat that to happen now would we? For the sake of our wetsiders and so they will continue to join us for the gathering I always allow Pickle to bring a little of his wetside sunshine with him to share.

    Like the guys have mentioned be prepared for everything because there is a good chance we will have it all in the way of weather. Heck it took me four years before I finally got to see the view at Buckhorn.

    Everyone remember to bring your MortimerSLICKER so you can stay dry hanging out in camp if it should rain. :D

    Of course there is room for one more, I wouldn't think about turning you away.


    If that epic single track ride is Baty Bould to Little Pend Oreille you're going to be doing a lot of log hopping. Take lots of pictures. :lol3 Have a good time.

    this is my first time on any type of adventure ride or adventure gathering. reading all the post sounds like I am in for a great time.

    1. Are there going to be any planned beginner adventure rides on Friday? I am looking at coming down early from Eltopia (north of Pasco) and was hoping to get in my first ever adventure ride Friday

    2. On the beginner rides are they very long? I only have about a 80 mile range on the bike before the push light comes on.

    3. I'll be taking my enclosed trailer down so if anyone from the Tri-City area has something they can't carry down themselves and would like me to take down for them shoot me a PM. I'm off the whole week and can pick it up mid-week or so

    Again thanks for all the hard work the organizers have put into this.

    Ha! 80 mile range won't even get you from the campfire to the outhouse! Seriously, there are few (none) gas stations on the rides. Better bring a siphon hose to suck off a KLR.
