    IN,

    For group camping. I don't snore or make other obnoxious noises - at least in my sleep... Where are all the other Mike's setting up their tents?

    ...on the "other" side of the campsite, of course!

    This way, if anyone should ask "where's Mike" it will be super-easy to point: "Over there"

    What? You want me to read ALL the words in your posts instead of the ones that suit me?
    first the Boise kids wouldn't let me make up my own stories now you won't. OK, I'll take you off the list even though you'll regret not showing up this year.


    At least you know how to post an IN but if you don't snore how are you going to keep the bear away? I don't know if having a herd of Mike's all in one area of the campground is a good idea - that sounds like trouble to me. :D

    I'm sure there will be plenty of others to make up for that deficit. :snore

    Maybe its just the fact that we've had a week of below freezing temperatures that are keeping my off the bike, but I'm getting impatient for June! I'm starting to look at maps, trying to plan an interesting route to Enterprise and back home to the Seattle area. Anyone have suggestions? Anyone want to join up for the ride?

    You're just now looking at the maps. I have been looking at them for the last month. I will be up a week early so I can get in some extra riding and I have a few nice rides already picked out. Were suppose to have mid to low 40's the end of this week so I'm hoping to get one of the bikes out for a ride.

    fbritt5 & Feyala you're on the IN list.


    Feyala, from the looks of your ride report you are getting better and better with the dirt all the time.

    If the rest of you haven't seen Fey's report it's here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=803576

    I think most of you had the opportunity to meet Jettin' Jim and his riding buddy Mick. Jim has a way of connecting with people and critters.

    Jim's ride report from last summer is in progress and the Hells Canyon part starts about here:

    Although the page before is about his ride to the gathering and also worth reading. Ah heck the entire ride report is worth reading.

    Seeing his pictures of the Hells Canyon area sure makes me look forward to June and the fun ahead of us. :D

    I was hoping to ride the KLR down this year and Dave and I talked about it last night. He sounds like he really wants to make it this year.
