    I'm trying to think of how it would logistically work for me to get the bike up there, but first things first: Do you still have room for one more? This seems like just the thing for me! Lots of awesome ladies and a low skill level trip. I'm still working on keeping the thing UP!!! I sure hope there's room cause I think it would be so much fun to meet other lady riders!

    You are on the IN list. Just an FYI, the ride as a whole will be new rider friendly, but expect some difficult riding as well. I have to make it interesting for all skill levels. I only have about 12 months of riding experience under my belt, so we won't be climbing any mountains, but I will be finding us some "fun." Just come mentally prepared for anything and it will all seem easy. :D

    So what did you get? You are on the IN list as well.

    I'm right there with you, sister! Ready for warm, sunny days.

    Sherry, I am honestly so happy to hear this. You were so instrumental in getting me out on my first ride that I want to return the favor. I will pm with location later.

    There are several gals that would likely be more than happy to ride up with you. Try PMing littebull, littleposum, scarlet and lo-n-slow.

    I have been enjoying following the posts here and looking forward to riding with you all. This is going to be a fun adventure and I think it is an awesome plan, won't be surprised if it turns into an annual event.

    I will be coming from the seattle area and anyone coming from this area is welcome to ride with me (adventure girl).

    I am an dirt instructor for Puget Sound Safety and will be working all the adventure camps. The all woman's camp will be a blast and you will learn much. We are now doing an out ride on the last day so you can apply all you learned out on trail.

    I am so looking forward to riding with you all.

    Cheers,
    Tracy

    That was the goal when it was started last year. The hope was that each year someone new and in a differant area would take over and plan it, thus showcasing the riding all over the northwest. And allowing the women to get to know each other and ride together without all the testosterone.

    I am looking forward to hosting a fine group of ladies. Girls just wanna have fun, you know! I woud appreciate the marketing of "fee for service" events be kept off of this thread, however. I already asked maddaddy to please not market the PSSOR courses on here. There is a "vendor" section on ADVrider that is the appropriate place to market your courses. While I am sure some of the gals would love to attend, this is our place to plan our ladies ride (and have a little banter) and nothing more.

    Exactly! Katy and I plan to keep this going every year. We even have some locations pinned for the next couple of years.

    Shelly thank you for attempting to maintain the original intent of this event, something casual and folksy just for girls. As I recall we had several ladies interested in hosting subsequent events. You are doing a great job facilitating this event and the discussion. Thank-you for carrying on! :clap

    I now have the time free to do the Women's Camp. I've thought about doing it for a couple years, but the timing never worked. I've been riding for a couple years, but know that I still have a lot to learn. I'm thinking about taking my G650 GS. It will making doing things on my 250 seem like a piece of cake. :D
