    Here it is again.
    Another campout in the fabulous foothills of the Sierra Nevada. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Where:<o:p></o:p>

    When:<o:p></o:p>
    October 10-12 (in case you didn&#8217;t catch it in the title)<o:p></o:p>
    The following Monday is Columbus day. Oh the irony.<o:p></o:p>
    It&#8217;s a little late in the season but perhaps we&#8217;ll catch some Indian summer. More irony. <o:p></o:p>

    <o:p></o:p>
    Here&#8217;s the deal. It&#8217;s a small and cozy campground that doesn&#8217;t take reservations. There are showers (bring quarters) and flush toilets. There are good roads for day rides near by, both paved and the not so paved.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    This will be a BYOE (Bring your own everything) event. It&#8217;s up to you to pay for your campsite, bring your own food and booze, and entertain yourself. You want a sticker, have one made. You want a T-Shirt, stop at WallMart. You want morning coffee, get over to Starbucks. I will commit to bringing wood for the community fire. If you&#8217;re trucking your bike in and want to add to it that would be great. If you want to pass a few $$$ my way for wood I&#8217;d appreciate it. I don&#8217;t have a stash of fire wood so I&#8217;ll have to buy it.<o:p></o:p>

    If you want to PM me that you&#8217;re coming or just chime in here in the thread I&#8217;ll keep an in list.

    Now really, what's better: a cushy cruise through warm azure Caribbean seas, or standing in the rain with a buncha drunken fools talking about motorcycles?












    Enjoy the trip......................:lol3

    IN!

    Mike, I just about gave up on this - or figured you'd taken it to the invitation only status. :uhoh

    I wanted to go to Same Old Thing But Different But Not last year and had to bail. Looks like fun!

    Standing in the rain, talkin' motorcycles - what's not to like? :dunno

    If MaddBrit's there, we'll get him to recite the Bill of Rights to us - in his PJ's. :pot
