    I know where that is! I almost got stuck trying to go over that pile of dirt. It was about the consistency of talcum powder.

    Let’s get a roll call going.

    Full committed (going), 50% committed (maybe going), and aught to be committed.

    I'm 50% committed. Debating between this and the MITRA ride on June 8 in Osceola. I've put 700 miles on my shiny new KLR but I don't have a GPS setup or a luggage situation figured out yet.

    No GPS is no problem for the Loess ride. Enough people around have nav, so you just tag along. Luggage depends on you. I’m going to trailer in, so I’ll have most things anyone could need in the Jeep. So, a duffle of just your core camping stuff would do.
