    Does anyone have conformation that it's being held at the usual location? (horse camp between Elbe and Ashford) Exact date? (Jan 18-20th as usual?)

    Anyway, I probably won't be riding this year (bald tires on the GSX650F probably not the best idea :lol3) But I still may bring the cage, some grubbins, my camera and firewood if I can fit it :D

    I must admit, I was excited to see this thread started because I have been perusing the past events in Ratty2Austin's photo albums.

    No, Im not a stalker or anything like that lol....just living vicariously through his photo albums because Im excited to put this "new to us" VStrom 1000 to good use.

    Kind of looking at what events and options are available to me and my girlfriend for the adventure bike arena here in the NorthWest.

    Snow Camp looks to be right up our alley! :D

    well, I am not sure the sign post is the same, but this is the marker that indicates the entrance to the camp we usually host it in- which is a few miles out of Elbe, WA as you are heading towards Mt Rainier...it is on the left side of the highway (north)

    As far as a date- still waiting to hear about that one :ear

    Might take a crack at making it this year. Camping in the snow seems kinda stoopid but I can't seem to look away from this dead squrrel.

    Have you ever tried camping in the snow? It's actually a lot more fun than you would think! (and waaaaaay better than camping in the rain for sure! :deal )

    I haven't tried it yet. Just need to make sure I have the right gear.

    BTW I have some Subaru questions for you. I'll send a PM when I get some time. :D
