    Will there be a place to park my Toy Hauler at the site? Is there any cost to park the RV?
    Thanks Andy

    Wife and I stopped at Sheetz in Centre Hall a couple of weeks ago, and I see a bike with gsjay plate on it. I'm thinking "why does that ring a bell with me?". Now I know. Only a quick greeting was exchanged.

    I am very disappointed not to see this sooner and plan accordingly. I have done some riding in the area and my inlaws live right around the corner... Have fun guys, hope there is a Soggy Bottom #3

    Probably not. Coincides with the start of the Grange Fair, which is a big family event for the wife. Stupid fair screws up 3 weekends in Aug.

    Will this be some of the trail/ road that was used in the Durty Dabbers event? Would you recommend 1290 SA or 690 enduro? I used my 250xcfw on the dual sport version at Dabbers and the 1290 Sunday on the adventure ride with no issues. It was my first time at dabbers and will just bring the 690 only next year as it wasn't too technical for a woods bike.

    Hi, not much overlap with the Dabbers event other than Hyner View. I would recommend either the 690 or 1290. We will be on all roads, some short technical sections...but I'll be on a 1200 GSA if that helps

    Update: Finalized GPX files will be emailed to all registered attendees via eventbrite tomorrow, but will also be available for download at the event. Weekend totals between the four rides are approximately 350 miles; mostly off pavement. Looking forward to meeting everyone and a huge thank you to everyone that has signed up! For those still on the fence, Cabanas are sold out but we do have a bit more room in the bunkhouse and plenty of tenting options available as well. If you would like to bring a camper, that's fine, we just ask that you select "bunkhouse" option when registering for lodging. Weather forecast is improving and we're very excited about the weekend!
