    Just booked site 77. I mentioned with the motorcycle group and they though I was crazy. I'm assuming alot of people are doing tent sites and not reserving early?

    I can’t read their minds, but tents don’t need a reservation.

    But you ride motos ... you should be used to being seen as crazy ;)

    I have no reservations about camping in a tent...

    It's a pretty nice place, by the way.

    I've never been to this event but looking forward to it. I'll bring the family, truck camper, bike and a comfortable chair to chill. Thanks for putting this together.

    All accurate, I was just worried I tried to book the wrong days. Had to come back and check the forum to make sure I was getting senile.

    Vacation time submitted and approved by both work and home bosses. Looking forward to some saddle time. A fun weekend and then heading north :p3rry

    I should note that I'll be joining Bomber on this adventure. And we have a HORRIBLE track record for actually making rides together.

    I reached out to make reservations today. Kym told me that the spots I'd asked about (86-88) were taken.

    When I told her I would be with the motorcycle group based in spot 89 she said, "I will get you right in with the rest of the group!"

    I think if you're thinking about reserving a spot for a vehicle other than your bike(s), you'd better get moving.

    I was thinking I might want to ride my Trail 125 on this ride. I was wondering if there are any other small bike owners that might want to give it a whirl on small displacement bikes. Might be fun.

    I plan to do the ride on my CRF250L. While 2x the displacement of your new scoot, it's still pretty small....especially with my obese body on top of it!!!

    I would love a new Trail 125, but I think they have a max weight limit.

    Also, looks like they put me in Site 84.

    Usually Gerken will put them out just prior to the event after he does a final proof ride.
