    Slot #72 as well. My father isn't doing well, so I'm going to Sweden to spend time with him.

    Hope you all have a great time.

    Got a new bike so it'll be its madien attendance. 2nd year without FlyRescue which saddens me. If any Gruvers i.e. Legion needs bed space(his own bed that is), I should have some.

    PSA: Goldrush is already sold out of dry campsites; they still have sites with power and water but Pat said the reservations are filling up quickly this year. I expect the same is true at most popular lodging purveyors so don't procrastinate arranging a spot to hang your helmet.

    I procrastinated too long, as usual, but I just booked the Miner's Tent at Whitehouse Cabins. I hope I trip on a great big nugget. I can't wait, I have two months to ride CA and AK.

    Took one of the power spots and can have two tents up if anyone needs a spot happy to share.

    "SUBMIT" actually means Post Reply. You can blame KHuddy for that misnomer. :evil :D
    Nobody really has to sign up for this "Sturgis of the North" cluster anyway, just show up & you're there.

    Wrong fetid breath.... the ability to perform rudimentary problem solving and extrapolation is considered an important characteristic for potential D2D attendees. Consider our little test a form of extreme vetting.

    Arriving without prior approval will result in the most odious of social rebuffs.

    From what I’ve seen this vetting process you describe is not working. :muutt
    If it was I’m sure the D2D attendance would be cut down by 50% or more. Hell, you been there & seen these people. :uhoh

    Hi All;

    I'm hoping to locate a camping spot for this year's experience. I'll be riding from Eagle River.
    Let me know if anyone has any extra space to share?
    Thanks!

    I reserved a amp&water site at Goldrush CG for June 15 and 16. I'm a tent camper and they tell me there's room for another tent on the site. Willing to share.
