    Added a few recent entries, including adding back the DaFap Rally in July, which was sorely missed last year. THANKS DaFoole!!!

    Might be as horrific as all the Mikes that showed up at another rally...
    I hope all these Scott fuckers bring Whiskey. The Mikes just brought beer.

    One of the Scott fuckers brought whisky last year, so there's a good possibility.

    Great Scott, it is going to be a Scott fest. Need to add Scott Malv too. I christen thee "Idaho Scott" , though that may be confusing since I was born there too. I just can't bring myself to call you "I'd ride her".

    Both of those calendars are at the bottom of the first page, but I did add some of the select events to the ADV Calendar. I tend not to put EVERY race on the calendar as ADV isn't primarily a race organization, but, again, try to put a few of the bigger ones on there. Keep me honest though if I'm missing something that you feel a LOT of advriders would be interested in.

    I see you are racing for the first time this year....good luck, and let us know how it goes.

    Barlow or Bust over Memorial Day Weekend works for me, give working folks and extra day to play. Finding a camp might be more challenging though, remember the weirdness we had last year. Barlow is fun and all, but not sure I need 3 or 4 days riding it. Maybe camping at Rock Creek or McGubbins, which are both on or close to Barlow, gives more riding options since they are also OHV areas with trails?
