    I just added some character by adding grease marks on my first Got Tolland? from '09. Couldn't watch my older brother trying to remove steering knuckle turning the nut wrong way...

    T-shirts were sacrificed to keep the entry costs down.

    Well that's bullshit. I'm going to bring an old one, X-out the year and Sharpie in 2016. You're going to have to initial it for me, to make it official.

    This will make a good warm up ride on my way up to Canada for the Roaming Rally. At least a couple of us are rolling it into one big ride.

    Howdy,
    So what's "primitive" camping, do I need to bring a shovel?
    Thanks,

    primitive camping is no hookups, no fires. It's a place to setup your tent or sleep in your car if you're afraid of moose and bears. We'll have porta-potties onsite

    Howdy,
    Thanks for the reply. It may be hard to "camp" without a fire but porta-potties and running water is all I need.

    There is a community fire pit that's big enough for the whole campsite (at least there was 2 yrs ago) and water is avail at multiple locations right down the road. Don't rule out BTR trails, they won't disappoint.

    Howdy,
    Going off site does not make sense $ wise. Is there a community fire? That would be great. Doing a lot of IBMC campouts that is what they do. The response I got was primitive camping is " no fires". Yes, water I can haul in but things were starting to stack up in the wrong direction.

    lots of folks camp off site, it's only 5 minutes up the road, and all that much closer to East Granville Country Store, fresh made cheddar cheese and a killer deli and kitchen. We get sites in the tent area around the pond at Prospect Mt. and always have a fire. Granted it's not the cheapest camping but their nice people and deserve our business. Helps keep the ride coming back.
    This is the premier big bike ride in our area and shouldn't be misses for a 5 minute commute. Not to mention how many awesome people you'll connect with that usually turn out to be lifelong friends
