    Absolutely! In fact, my SO will be taking my KLR so I can trade off when I get tired of picking up the pig. Some of the pics from this last weekend are of the quarry in question. pilot1.smugmug.com
    I think this will be something like Chain's campout without riding all over three counties. The rough stuff will be right there.

    Also, Overlander will be showing some stuff about off roading the pig. I am in need of all the help I can get!

    Actually, I was just trying to turn it around and lost it to the down hill side. Put a nasty dent in the tank and broke the turn signal.

    Overlander is supposed to add details, but I haven't talked to him since Sunday. We are supposed to meet in Atchison to ride to the site. Much shorter on the dirt approach. If it rains, it will be a bitch to get in from Levenworth. This place is a dirt riders paradise. Lots of hill climbs and stuff.

    My SO will be taking her suv with trailer(with KLR) with cooking and camping stuff, so we need to know who is coming to have enough stuff.

    I will be gone to the Jo Momma beach party in Washington until a couple days before this, so discuss among yourselves. :D

    I talked to Overlander last night. I found out we can camp on site on Friday night. Also, Sunday, we have use of a motorcross track. It's about 30 or 40 miles away. (I'm guessing)

    I'm hoping Lee will be getting a map up on this thread soon. I won't be here for most of the planning. I'm taking a little ride out west. I will be home on or around the 13th.

    Sorry it took so much time to get back with details for this weekend. Here it is...My cell # is 913-706-0107 and I will accepting calls starting at 3:00 on friday. The directions to the quarry where we will be camping is a very tough thing to describe. The most direct way to get there is to go to Atchison,KS and meet at the Dairy Queen (930 Skyway) in downtown Atchison. When I know about how many are coming and where from, I can better make the details more suited for the group. I'll post GPS coords later for those so equipped. The rest of you will be at either my or Pilots mercy! The saturday of the 15th will see us playing at the quarry and exploring the area. The following day sun the 16th we will migrate to the south of the KC area where I will conduct a training class on big bike off-road technique and handling. This will consist of a brief photo shoot for my up-coming book on the subject. You'll be glad you came, it should be fun and informative!! :thumb
