    Here's a link to last year's inaugural event:
    http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/summer-cromag-7-17-19-so-nh.1068043/


    Liza and I had a blast doing this last year, and this year looks to be even bigger and better with Yankee Beemers and GS Giants looking to climb aboard the New England fun train with us.

    Camping, swilling booze and telling lies around a fire, riding great roads, ADV'ing, dualsporting, single-tracking (not a lot of that in NH from what I gather)...generally having a good summer time outside with like-minded friends and enthusiasts.

    If you would like to ride anything harder or further abroad than the Class VI roads, then you should purchase a NH ORV sticker: NH ORV sticker info

    The closest retailer that sells these stickers is Pelletier's Sport



    We are still working on details and what we want to do, but some of the things you can count on are:

    -Awesome local riding with some guided rides (mild to wild…something for everyone)
    -Central fire each night next to the central pavilion (power outlet available at pavilion)
    -Free coffee each morning (with real cream and everything)
    -A real deal campground with spacious camp sites and fire pits and picnic tables (limited amount of power sites valuable, first come/first serve)
    -This means yes, we have room for your campers and RV's
    -Firewood for sale on site
    -Bath house with flushing toilets and hot showers
    -Grill and coolers available for use
    -BBQ/food Saturday night
    -Dirt riding available right on the property…some single track, lots of very rocky and hard 4x4 trails, and direct access to a Class VI that runs through the property
    -I would love to have Scottish Trials, but I have never organized them myself...any volunteers? :lurk

    A lap of our on site single track thus far:

    Pricing will be $50 for the weekend, including BBQ in Saturday…it's more expensive than last year, but still in line with other rallies like this (last year was discounted to help the first year take off)

    :lurk

    I could see myself there. I'm not too far away and lack camping gear that is able to be carried on the bike, so it would be for the day and ride back home if that is ok.

    Dude…strap a tent and sleeping bag onto your bike. It'll be fine…live on the edge :deal

    We don't know if we're going to get into 1 day ticket sales…trying to make this a weekend event more than a 1 day ride.

    That said, if you want to pay for the weekend and just ride in on Saturday, who am I to stop you?

    The only tent I have is an 8 person tent with 100' of poles that weight like 200#. :lol2

    I'll see what I can do until then. I have been eyeing out hammocks for camping though. I'll see what I have for gear when this event comes around. Just bought the bike and all my extra funds went into ergonomics and getting the bike setup for my tall ass.

    In!
    This is also a great opportunity to ride twisty mountain roads, eat at Fiddleheads, cook over fire, watch cave man tv, and commune with nature.... I love the smell of premix in the morning...

    YB's will be there, bring yer dead meat, yer fancy chairs and any musical instruments of destruction...

    I'm afraid to Google that. :lol2

    I may be able to scrape something together. I'm loaded with camping gear, but its large camping gear; nothing that can be carried on the bike. I have six months to get a sleeping bag and sleeping mat. I don't see why Iwouldn't be able to cobble something together. :D

    Stumbled across this... Looks like fun!
    I had a great time at my first group ride in the Catskills in 2014.
    I hope I will be able to make this ride/weekend fit into my schedule.
