This is just a quick note, too see if there is any interest from outside of Sweden for this nav rally/boot camp/fun event... a bit short notice, but due to a few drop outs and a bit less than the usual subscriptions this year, we are offering a few last minute places on this (usually invitation only) annual navigation bash; 8<SUP>th</SUP> annual “Dirty Long Weekend” navigational rally<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o> <o></o> Southern Sweden (Skåne/Blekinge) the 28th/29th/30th September 2012. <o></o> DIRTY WEEKEND LONG ... a tradition since 2005, for diehard road book junkies to gather and do a heap of navigational riding together. The weekend includes everything from night navigation routes, longer 100 to 150 km navigation stages on combination of gravel and forest roads, with up to five or six enduro and motocross special tests thrown in, held over a three day (two night) camp out format. The forest bivouac at night includes accomodation in one of three 12 person tents (with wood stove), catering and gear transport, with lot's of laughter, food / beverage and socializing around the camp fire. A link to a thread from last years event; http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=737827&highlight=Dirty+Long+Weekend <o></o> <o>DLW 2012 total mileage is between 700 and 750 km, all navigated by roadbook (except MX and enduro tests), so your registered/insured and licensed bike</o> <o>needs to be equipped with a roadbook and tripmeter, as well as lights that allow you to navigate the night stages (it will be pitch dark). </o> <o></o> The event is limited to 30 participants. At present we have 15 signed on (plus the four members of the organising team) so ideally we need a (minimum) of six more riders, and up to 15 places that are available. Riders will be teamed up in groups of three and participate in both team and individual challenges throughout the weekend. Cost for this whole spectacle is 180 EURO... Swedish.Moto-Safari.se provide for the transport of your gear over the weekend, all tent and bivouac logistics/catering and a Sweep rider/service vehicle service. In order to get things organised we need to know by no later than friday the 24th of august WHO/HOW MANY are coming to ride, and get all in place (as far as payments etc.) before the end of August. So if you are genuinely interested in being a part of this adventure (most of the Swedish participants in the TUAREG Rallye have used this event previously as an end of season warm up/bike test for their rally preparations) then PM me (I can send you more information/details) or post a question up on the DLW 2012 thread in VENDORS forum. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=817339 regards Troy.
