    Yes, still October 16-17. But just two weeks apart and I hope most inmates will do both rides. So why not make them different roads.

    I’ve got a wedding to attend planned for that Saturday and a hangover planned for Sunday. Looking forward to riding the tracks though. Thanks for the work that goes into this.

    Chicken-Butt--------------go to the top of this page and find the 'search' box---click it---at the bottom of that box look for 'more'---click it---at Keyword type in 'Hoosier National Forest' then click the 'search' button . This will bring up a long list of threads that relate to the HNF rides. Tracks for each years ride are posted there.

    I just grabbed unit 19. I'll remember my sleeping bag this year so I'm not freezing my sorry butt off all night.

    If anybody wants to split the site, I'm happy to share. Just pitching toward the cost would be appreciated!

    EDIT 8-Oct-21: Got another inmate claiming the other tent space on my site. No more space available unless the park management gets generous day-of and decides to ignore a third tent.

    In at site 11 Bobcat.

    This will be my first advrider group event, I'm starting to get more serious about doing dirt and the "adventure riding" thing.

    Looking forward to meeting lots of new people and getting all the names wrong!

    I think you'll find this to be a good way to get your feet wet. We don't really have any of that backcountry dirt stuff here in Indiana like you'd get in some areas with large tracts of BLM land or swaths of fire roads-at least not in any great, continuous quantity. Fortunately, you can definitely get a fine taste of riding a little more remote on some sloppy roads with good scenery. I think of it is as a good way to relax, learn my bike a little better, and get some practice at problem-solving as-necessary without the big risk of being truly out in the middle of where. HNF is a great ride I look forward to every year!

    If you want a hand at getting a real dirt fix, check out the event at Stoney Lonesome MC on Sep 18-19. It has a true dirt singletrack on a large section of private land that's only open to us once a year: http://stoneylonesomemc.com/Races-Events/Buffaloe-500 That said, for skill level of that singletrack...I'm on a Tiger 800 XC and have a almost of a decade of riding experience, but I'm not going to touch that ride. If I had a smaller bike or way more off-road experience (95% of my experience is street & gravel), I'd try it again, but I got my butt handed to me on a KLR650 a few years ago in a section of that track and had to get help to bail me out of the course and take a long loop around to meet the riding group outside of it.

    I saw that one and considered it but I'm not really going to be doing any single track until I have 1) more experience 2) knobby tires on the bike

    I'll be going down on my own on the 9th and 10th next month to do some of the SE Indiana loop.

    I didn't say it before but I have to give a HUGE THANKS !! to all the people who are working on and publishing these tracks. I know it has it's fun times with it but that is a tremendous amount of work and I for one greatly appreciate it.
