    Hey Dan, I'm doing the ride, going up solo from Greensboro but riding with a group of guys on Saturday that I met online. We're doing the dirt route, and you're welcome to join us. I'll be on a white and yellow Suzuki DR350, driving a dark red ford escape with a hitch carrier...staying at the Pineola Inn. Cheers

    That's the plan, hopefully they still make the 300cc or 650gs's in 16 years so I can get her started early

    You don't have to wait 16 years. You can put baby seat in a sidecar.

    That sounds great. I'd like to join you if you don't mind.

    I'm on a black and orange KLR. Tent camping, orange tent way at the back by myself (away from the other tents).
    I was planning to do the dirt ride as well. I got here too late to see ride sheets or anything.

    I'm out this Thursday. Hope you all have a good time.

    Since I won't be there to ask, I'll throw this out here:
    I am looking to do a moto-camping trip the weekend of 10/27-29 or 11/17-19. The goal will be to find some good dirt roads somewhere in the mountains, although we may need to watch weather forecasts to avoid snow or super-cold temps (I am assuming). I'm open to using campgrounds or primitive camping. It could be a section or two of the SM500, or just find a good route anywhere. I have a few different ideas, and I am open to others.

    On either weekend I could leave early in the afternoon on Friday. 10/29 I need to be home by 5 PM. On 11/19 I would need to be home by 1 PM.

    Anyone interested?

    Thanks, I appreciate the tip. I probably won't attend that particular event, but I did join the AATR FB group.
