    I'll be pulling in on Thursday afternoon with my rig. I think I'll have two meeting me, and hope they have signed up. Dan Zee and John Thompson. At least that's the plan.

    Question: is there a place to have a fire? I can bring a bit of wood, and a fire ring if needed. How can you have a camp-out with out a fire!

    I'll hope to be there by mid-afternoon tomorrow (Thursday), if all goes well.

    Coming in on 2-wheels so Bringing extra "stuff" seems out, but willing to do whatever I can to help get things set up

    Unfortunately, my buddie Ben's bike will not be back together in time for the rally, so we are out, unless I can find a ride down with someone leaving from L.A. Hopefully we can make it next year.
    Cheers,

    All loaded up and ready to head down in the morning. The old DRZ has some brand new plastics that need a little scratching up.

    As you might imagine Andy and I have been busy getting ready for folks to come out so not spending a lot of time online the last couple of days! :D

    Yes, there's place for a fire and bringing wood is a great idea (although we do have some available as well).

    We've been out getting food and making things ready and we're looking forward to seeing folks this weekend. Should be lots of great riding and the WEATHER LOOKS FANTASTIC!

    Wow, great turnout so far. Folks from Colorado, Mississippi, Maine, Cali, New Mexico, and Arizona with bunches more expected tomorrow.

    Big rigs, small rigs, big bikes, small bikes and tents popping up like spring flowers.

    Welcome, welcome.

    Thanks to Andy, Raven, and all those who help put this on. I had a great time and met some really wonderful people. It is nice to be included with "come alone and ride with us" attitude. I loved the "dirt roller coaster" of the Arivaca Outback.
