    Hey AKlizzard,
    I've got a reservation there for a 2 person wall tent on Wednesday night........and not sure if I have a riding partner to share it yet. What day are you planning on leaving Palmer?

    Forgot to mention, no need for reservations if you're just tent camping.

    LOTS of room all around. Man, I sleep good on the moss up there! Also, did you know the area is known for it's great tasting artesian well water?!?

    Unlimited free firewood too so many of us stay up late into the night around the campfire. Good times. Mark H.

    PERFECT! GREAT to be able to change oil there as well. Our gang of 2-3 will be there 6/23 after the D2D. Is that a Hilliberg una tent in the foreground?

    I plan on stopping overnight here on my way to and from D2D if I get the time off. Keep your fingers crossed. Nothing like showing up to a new unit and immediately asking for a weeks vacation a month after you get there.

    COuld be a long day Sat after D2D partying, but I'm trying to get to the campground that evening across TOW. Vanessa, who runs it has been great and is totally ADV friendly, as one would expect from a moto campground owner. She's one of our own, so stay there if ya can to show your support.

    There was a circ... Oh, nevermind.
    Found that Freightliner emblem on the TOW Hwy at the base of the hill leading to the “Top of the Top” while I was waiting for Frank & Jason to come along after their umteenth ‘break’. It just fit nicely in there.
    I can’t believe all the shit I’ve seen people pack on some bikes. That’s why they got the F-liner emblem.
    Another one that I’ve seen packed up & lookin’ like a Beverly Hillbillie’s ride. :lol3

    Not sure WTF Tom's talking about .... but I'm glad he's back on the board.
    Here is a shot of BB dressed out for a 2 month run.
    Yes there is a lot of stuff piled on, but my clothes are bigger and take up more room.
    FYI MudMan... there is a tent and bag on board.:D:D:D
