    Follow this post, not exactly from Portland, but you may find it useful. I have not ridden it, but some have.

    Gonna go riding out of Randle. Tuesday the 29th, dual sport, maybe camp a night somewhere. No real plan more like loose directions sort of thought out.
    I know it’s during the week, but that’s when I am off work so. Anybody wanna meet up?

    Snag up on a Benchmark Atlas. That will give you great place to start so you can piece together routes to Astoria.

    Beat me to it.

    That sounds entirely like Type II Fun, with a high probability of Type III fun, so unlikely. Besides, my brother is in town and I'll be just to the east of you animals, working on getting him up to speed.

    Good luck; don't die. :D

    Thanks for the vote of confidence. :rofl This'll be my first time on an expert schedule, so I'm just hoping to not hour out.

    And yeah, I gotta see how much water I can stuff into my vest. I'm thinking 5 quarts.

    All the check points should have water for everyone. They save the whiskey and beer for them selves.

    BTW, the OHV trails are closed this weekend, for public use it's gravel roads only. The race has a permit to use the trails; it sounds like the course will be shortened and heavily patrolled. Everyone's required to bring a light firefighting kit. (Extinguisher, extra water, shovel)

    Oh? I check the TSF OHV blog and didn't see anything about closure or the like.

    ETA: I see that as of the wee hours of this morning, the trails are in fact closed. Damn. http://tillamookstateforest.blogspot.com/2021/06/fire-danger-moving-to-high-effective.html

    I'm glad I got out last night.

    2 loops x 5 quarts per loop should be about right.

    Yep. I used 4 quarts per loop at the last race like this. Ran out just before the end of the second loop.
