It's that time of year again, let's try this again. I was waiting a bit to check on some availability, and other events, but need to pick a date so here it is. The good riding season is slowly slipping away, so let's make plans to make another "Last Chance" trip out there. Looks like availability for past riders is all is all over the place, this is about the same weekend as the last few years and that worked out, and most importantly, the date works for me, so there! Who: You! What: Meet up with ADV riders and ride Trails/visit/camp. When: Thursday Nov 14th- Sunday Nov 17th Where: UPDATE - Looks like the Forest Service is doing some burning around the Road 25 Staging Area, so lets camp at the Road 2510 Staging Area this year. Why: Ride East Fort Rock's wonderful trails, hopefully dodge the wet weather on the other side of the cascades, talk bikes (and trash), share an adult beverage. Lots of Dual Sport / ADV riding in the area as well. How: Either trailer out a small bike, or ride your adventure bike and camp. Hell, even just drive a rig, if you just wanna hang out. This is not an official event, there will be no host, prizes, sag wagon or collections (Farm Rules). You are responsible for yourself and your camping needs, but the staging area is huge plenty of room for all. If you decide to drive a rig, and can grab a tote/bundle of firewood from home it will help. Bring a beverage you can share, and your own food to cook. This will be much like the Crooked River camp out, except you can ride trails right from the campsite!!! If somebody wants to do more organization on food, rides, carpooling post it up on this thread and go for it. The last few years we set up at this exact spot and it was perfect...43.786062, -121.030585 (Paste that into Google Maps). There is a fire ring and picnic table there. East Fort Rock has trails appropriate for Adventure Bikes to get some trail riding under their belt, and other trails that will challenge more advanced riders. It's all well marked. It seems like a good place for a novice/beginner to learn to ride also, so no excuses. See the COHVOPS newsletter for the latest information and EFR trailmaps. Last year some of us rode Millican South on Sunday on the way home and that was AWESOME, and a nice change of pace! Heavy Snow, Heavy Rain or Arctic Cold front, may cancel the camp out (or at least THIS rider), but it had better be EPIC. Even in "good" weather, expect cold temperatures at night so bring the "winter bag" or extra blankets etc. It was especially cold last year, so carry that extra layer.
