    another FIRST POST and joined ADV yesterday so you could join the noobs. thank you for posting up. AWESOME.

    sorry, all hotel rooms are taken and there's already a waiting list. there are other options left like tent cabin or camping (which is the best deal and you get to enjoy the real outdoors).

    If no more rooms available, any tent-cabin available? I don't own any camping gear, but I guess I have time to get what I need. If there's a tent-cabin available, what do I need to do to reserve it?. Can you guys tell I have no idea what to expect.

    . Rider #2 on KTM is new member MRobb1. We can switch to RV dry camp to free up the hookups for volunteers.

    for now plan for tent camping. once we see an opening for a tent cabin, we'll keep you in mind.

    you guys coming on 2 different RVs? If just one and sharing, good chance we'll have a space for you. we encourage people to carpool.


    the overflow are pretty much reserved for people to stash their empty trailer or tow vehicles if they're bringing a camper. if there's space available, check with spafxer.

    Megaplow is staying in a 4-cot tent cabin with 3 others. There is no more space in that tent cabin for 1 more. FYI.

    rongreg049, if you want to be with them, you can set up your tent next to their tent cabin, but they have to OK it first.

    All right, for those of you who don't know, my nephew PhillyBurns likes to twist the throttle. Heading back from Balarat during last year's Noob ride, he came smoking into this turn. Even he admits that when he saw what was coming, he forgot to "Look where you want to go, not where you are heading". He hit the berm at probably 70mph +. All I saw from 1/4 mile back (I was sweeping) was a dust cloud. When I got there, I found the carnage. It's always fun to talk about this stuff, and laugh afterward, but the reality is, he was seriously lucky. The first impact was him on his back, with the bike on top of him. It hit hard enough to snap his triple clamp and the Pro Taper bars. After it flipped, it still had enough inertia to snap off the entire rear fender support. He managed to catch is breath after about 10 minutes and we were lucky enough that we had a trailer with us to take his bike back to camp. He is still having issues with his back, but somehow managed to "walk" away from this.
    I'm spending a little time on this to emphasize "noobness". Please, don't ride over your head. Bad things can happen. I mentioned luck many times above, but that seems like an understatement when you consider the damage to the bike and how hard he hit.
    Please, if you are a noob rider, get used to the bike first. Get used the terrain. Ask people for pointers.
    The video I am including was taken right after the crash and kind of shows the aftermath.
