    for Tuesday Night (11th) Backyard Tent Camping/BBQ/campfire on my 5 acres near Hood River,
    and the Wed & Thur "Edge of Wilderness DIRT RIDE", and Forest "nowhere" tent camping Wed & Thur nights.

    If registration can start Thursday evening, we can get there then,,,,whatever....:1drink

    By then, I'll have a Forest (free) campspot personally picked out, as close as possible to the Rally site.

    We are not making plans on how to get there yet.

    They say Elk Lake is 35 minutes from Bend. There's no camping closer?

    It looks like a good place though.

    Oh Yeah, got to be in on this one.

    I've been told we will be able to find non-campground or "dispersed" camping VERY close to the event.
    I plan on scouting some time this Summer....I'll let you all know what I find.

    Good deal. Just need a porta-poty and flat ground.

    If anyone over there on the dry side needs volunteer help for this event, send me a PM.

    Bump-a-Lump.

    Riding/Camping near Bend, OR, with 100s of other Adventure Riders.
    You just gotta make it to this !! :freaky


    There likely won't be a porta potty in the Dispersed Camspot that I intend to find:
    - Close to the event,
    - In the Forest,
    - No other people, except us Hooligans :1drink

    The amount of cool dispersed camping in the area is ENDLESS!
    There are so many sites, that you can decide if you want Pondi or Juni or Sage or Rock, still or running water, snow, fishing. Single track or two track access, State, BLM or USFS, on a butte with a view or in a draw surrounded by terrain... Really, you will get lost before running out of opportunities.:deal

    Hey guys - been lurking awhile and finally got myself set up on the site. I was thinking of making a cannonball run from Calgary on the 990 for this rally as I've never been to one. Might even be able to talk Beema Killa and another cat or two into making the run. Can someone who has been to an orange rally give me an idea what it's all about? No doubt that much orange in one place will be cool enough, just wondering about what to expect as it's a long haul from here.

    Not confirmed yet but I'm also keen on joining in this ride. Depending if I can get time off work.
    My plan was to hit the TCT and the KVR to Osoyoos and shoot down from there, hopefully meet up with Apple Jam and his group.

    Will keep an eye on what plans the Islanders and Loopers are up to, and go from there.
    I wonder how many DSBCers will be heading down there.
