    ANF 2014 should be good for me. Unless I leave here early Saturday morning the 1st. End of month is a must around here.

    Good job getting the thread started Adam, should be a good time.

    There were a lot of guys in trucks chasing dogs last weekend. Be careful on the blind corners.

    Looks like this is the same weekend as the Turkey Trot. Imagine there's some inmate crossover, thoughts on reschedule?

    Hope you guys can make the trip to the Trot.... There is still a month for the ANF campout in Dec...

    Remember permits of $12 must be obtained (can be purchased on Fri or Sat morning.)

    There are short challanging loops, longer not so challanging loops, a real long epic ride on Saturday, and BEAST LOOPs for those who have bigger bikes and dont want to fight sand...

    All primative camping... separate non-generator area...

    BTW - some sand will be involved....:evil

    I'll see what can be done about getting some rides together (tracks) but they take time and I don't have much of that.

    I can work up some routes but you never know where they may take you. I like to try and stick to the route as close as possible. If I haven't actually have ridden it, well then the route should be considered an adventure.

    The Rainbow people where the last large group to use the Cliff Lake area, about four hundred of them where reported to have been at their gathering in March.

    Fire wood could be minimal, I didn't see much last time passing through. I'm not so sure about gas being in Sumatra but there should be plenty of fried food.

    I don't have a cell phone but for you folks that do, I'm not sure if you can connect to the rest of the world while in this area of the forest.

    I can assist in some of those answers.

    I intend to pre ride some stuff, but please note that I don't normally carry a GPS, log tracks, email GPX files, or really give a shit where I am. I carry a compass, and gear that I need to exist, and accomplish self rescue.
    Not knowing exactly where you are isn't a problem. LOST is a BIG problem

    Firewood was not abundant. Those in trucks plan to haul some in if possible, or tools to process some onsite.

    No fuel in Sumatra unless you have a diesel bike that can run on fryer grease- bring fuel with you, or be ready to run some tar to get it

    On AT&T (no bars in more places) service is a 10 minute ride away for anything you'd call reliable-ish YMMV
