    As discussed in the ongoing DOG thread (http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=194015), a few of us will be camping in the Warwoman Wildlife Management Area, in Clayton, Georgia. We will be meeting Sat am, and plan to have kickstands up at 9:30. If more than a couple people show up, we ought to split into a couple ride groups in my opinion. We will camp Sat night, ride Sunday, camp Sunday night, and ride out Mon morning (MLK day). I do not know the area so this is not an organized ride, a la 'Flux's Big Adventure'. Just some dudes who want to ride during the day and swap stories at night. :ricky :beer



    Exact Directions: From Clayton, GA (NOT Clayton COUNTY) take hwy 76 East out of town. You will go a few miles til you see "CHECHERO
    CHURCH" on the left (it is a very small church). After the church
    you will make your next LEFT which is "POOL CREEK ROAD". Pool Creek starts out as a small paved road, and turns into dirt in a mile or
    so. Eventually you will see my truck, which will be parked on the
    main road. My truck is a 2000 Z71 Silverado, maroon in color. On
    the LEFT, you will see a creek crossing. Cross the creek to get to
    the campsite.


    Check out this site for a good map of the area. This is what Dags has printed off. http://mycountymaps.com/ga/ Click on "Rabun County" and you can figure out where we'll be. Very cool site to bookmark anyway. :thumb

    ***I do not think there is alot of room for truck parking at the
    campsite. One option for folks is parking at the Walmart south of
    Clayton and riding in that way. Parking bikes will be no problem.***


    I will bring some firewood, camp chairs, a tarp, coolers, and I have a small
    stove. I do not mind picking up a bunch of easy-to-cook food like
    dogs and bubba burgers if folks will throw some $ back my way. :D

    I wouldn't mind getting an idea on who will make it so I know how much food to get, if any. But, feel free to just show up.

    If anyone has any questions, just let me know. Hope to see you there.

    Yes, bring a guitar...we might run out of firewood.

    I have one of those big Gatorade coolers that they dump over coaches heads I will fill with water. Also, you can drink your own pee in an emergency.

    I have a couple coolers. I will bring them all.

    Ya'll check out the stuff up Overflow Creek Road if you haven't already. Hang a left right after you pass the the bridge over the West Fork of the Chattooga on Warwoman Rd, just before it dead ends at 28.

    Saturday- we'll aim for kickstands up at 9:30
    Sunday- kickstands up at 10
    Monday- 'evs'....that means whatevers for us yanks.

    Sounds good to me.

    Can't wait to see you in your new riding equip, Lance.

    GaM, thanks for the road tip. You know all the cool places. :thumb I just checked out that road on the map and it is one I have been wanting to take a look at. It is definitely on the list.

    Coates, you need to make it, son. I wish you'd camp out at least one night. I'd love to hear your stories of bicycle-chucking mountain men over a case of brew. :lol3

    Where the hell is Billy? ;)
