    Almost finished working out the details and routes...

    A slightly different version, same but different. No more optional tech sections, they are now on the main (one and only) route. A small fee will be charged this year to cover costs. Riders need to be in "teams" or "groups" of three for safety reasons. Same format, carry your gear, 3 different camps. Terrain may a "bit" more technical in some spots compared to last few years :evil

    Due to logistics we are going to limit the number of participants to 20 "teams" , aka 60 people.

    While trying to keep to the spirit of the event (on your own, suggested route, no assistance, do what ya want, drink how ever much ya want, etc) there will be a hint of organizational formality. Waiver forms and a mandatory list of items folks need or each team needs (tow ropes, gps units, first aid kits, etc). There will be a Formal check in, registration, safety speech, etc the first night (ya gotta be sober for it :rofl ). The rest of the weekend will a typical Roaming Rally. Hopeya make itbto the next camp kind of an event :freaky

    Details (dates, etc ) and signup coming soon :pynd
