    What a gold mine! Really great stuff from those of you that put in the time and shared the maps. With the new Ginger Sasquatch (690 Enduro), it's a whole new world ou there. Thanks for all the great maps and work.

    @Apple Jam if you wan to PM me about the work party and what not, or link me in a PM, I'll try to make it.

    I just decided. Kinda.
    Plan "A" The reserved spots at Little Lava Lake are full, but half the sites are just walk-up only, which means we'll have a good chance of snagging a couple sites early enough on Friday (July 6)....

    https://www.google.com/maps/place/L...a3d7d49235a59!8m2!3d43.9101167!4d-121.7616971

    Little Lava Lake CG is a small campground, we should be easy to spot. I'll get there just after noon on that Friday, maybe. If spots are full, we'll skip the huge main Lava Lake CG, and head to Plan "B" at Cow Meadow Campground, on the Deschutes River just as it leaves Crane Prairie Reservoir, on FS4600-620....

    I've never been to either CG, but the brochure looks nice!!

    I wonder will most folks be taking off the 4th of July holiday weekend on June 30 thru July 2, or July 6-8?

    Could make a difference to how busy the camps are gonna be.

    Good point, I forgot about the holiday. Would it be easier/better for you the previous weekend? My previous engagement for that previous weekend got moved up, so I'm open to either weekend now.

    6/30-7/1 I'm returning from a week of riding near Bear Lake @ Utah/Idaho/Wyoming border. Original date is best for me, 7/13-15 could work, but like the others don't make schedule based on me, I am not yet 100% for this event...

    Let's do BOTH weekends, then, seriously.

    I think I'd like to spend both weekends there camping and riding, even if we don't need to do shit,...just because. Let's work some Central Oregon deep in our souls !!!

    The Black Dog ran around the base of Pinhead so that shouldn't need much cleaning but you might want to check the road to the top :D

    Thanks for uploading these but I'm confused by the Metolius to Big lake section. (A to B) How do you get to the Metolius (A) since the North CDR comes into the Big Lake area from Detriot and Metolius would be like a big detour an backtrack back to Big Lake? Thanks for clarifying.

    The chat with AJ was, the Cascades South Roaming Rally on Aug 24 might not start from Big Lake on account of not enough reservable space available. The thinking is, somewhere at Metolius there will be an acceptable camp. Ergo, showing a start from Metolius.

    It might turn out that way or not.


    For a scouting party at end of June, camp is on the middle of the route . . . so that part dudn't matter.

    Two weekends in central Oregon in the summer sounds downright glorious! Following with interest.

    I would not be able to make 6/30. I am still in for the original date if any of you are going to be going on that weekend still! Maybe enough interest that each weekend could work.
