    gassing up was great-the pump price was 2.12 with a sign above it that read "the actual price is twice what the pump reads"

    Looks like lunch and dinner are provided on Sat. What is available for lunch on Sunday? Does the route pass some local eateries? Do we need to pack our own?
    Thanks, Dan

    werent you there for the drunk tick races a couple years ago? they had a shot glass on the bar with some booze in it , as patrons came in and pulled ticks off they went in the glass then lined 'em up and bet on them to see which one made it 4" first. it was pretty cool!

    besides...... I'ld call you cougar bait long before calling you a drunk with a tic:clap.

    lunch sat dinner sat and breakfast sunday are all included, the ballance of the weekend you are on your own. personally Ild pack a couple boxes of little debbie snack cakes, 1/2 a gal poweraid, 5 or 6 candy bars and a tin of salted nuts, then hit up one of the establsihments in town when you get done with the loop on sunday.
    but thats just me and all my riding buddies say" stick with the fat guy you wont get hungry".

    Anyone planning on riding the BigBike route with Charlie and I on the GS's?

    Randy, you bringing the Husky?

    Jim, you still alive? Haven't seen/heard from you in a while. The r100 is always a welcome sight.

    are there any GPS tracks to download yet? I'm a GPS newbie so may need a few days to figure it out :D

    Looking forward to seeing everyone! I now have a larger tank on my Husky so I hopefully won't run out of gas and bought some new pants so the sound check guys get less of a laugh out of me :rofl

    out side which way?:lol3

    you can camp for free at the fairgrounds where we start, west of town is Richardson lake a USFS camp ground, north is Ham Lake private grounds, no idea what he charges, north and east is Bear lake another USFS camp ground, south is the maple something or other with the big blue ox, that one is south of townsend.
