    There's room for all of us, and more campspots available nearby if we overload our group area. More campgrounds 1 mile up and 1 mile downriver if we hit the festival size.

    Ain't too many other dorks out camping this time of year, so there's lots of empty (and free!) campsites to get away from the crowd, or stay close and be a part of the hooliganism !!!

    talking with my young brother TBlume,,we discussed the lack of rainfall, and sub-average snowpack.
    My thoughts are, if this continues, then the end of June thru Sept will be NO CAMPFIRES,,and toward the end of summer some road and area closures.
    Point being,,we better ride and camp while we can, before the upcoming possible shutdown, therefore, I am tentatively IN!:1drink
    That,,and I got a real shock on the back of my KLR, so I'm feeling all cocky, revitalized, and shit! :lol3
    I love my KLR!,,there,, I said it!:deal

    Now I gotta do the fork swap,,:huh,,,then it's done!

    Damn Jeff, you gotta make it to at least 11pm this time.... It was just warmer by the fire than in the tent so it was time to sleep while you can!

    I'm planning on riding Saturday morning. (weather permitting, won't ride in ice)
    If anyone is interested in doing a little desert riding let me know!
    Conditions will determine the route, but lunch for sure in either Brothers or Hampton Station. :clap

    This will be my first year attending (thanks to Jungle Man) I'm super stoked. What is the scene like? Are there tight trails, or is it pretty open? Looking forward to some riding and meeting some fellow riders.

    Yes.





    That's what I like about riding there.
    It's truly whatever you want.
    Awesome pavement twisties,
    high speed 100mph smooth gravel,
    chocolate butter two-track,
    open desert wide trails,
    and tight OHV single track.

    All within 10 miles from camp !!!!
    :clap
    drag that assriver dude down there, willya?
    I can't imagine a Crooked River weekend without either one-a-yas :deal

    That sounds awesome! I'm really looking forward to it. My little DRZ tops out at 75 but I'll try to keep up.

    I will make every effort to make this event. I will bring my Gulf Stream small motorhome and I ride a Yamaha TW200 and my favorite adventures are back country and single track trails. I am looking forward to an early Spring adventure.
