    No, they are just doing an "Outlaw Link Ride"! Could be anything with Link??? But fun I'm sure! You should hook up with Link, he'll lead you on a heck of a ride.

    I've checked out some camps and motels, I up-dated post #1 with the details. Could only block 10 rooms so if you want one you may want to call soon, 3 gone already I've heard.

    You can't have the floor---but you can have the bed.
    The other bed that is :D:D:D:D:D

    Let me know if you want to share the room and bed----otherwise Bash3r is wanting it.

    I added more MTRA info to post #1.
    But basically they charge $10 a day per person park there, (members $5 per truck load, so join). If you park there you can ride their grounds, camp, use the well, RV dump, showers, whatever. Go to the link and click on "VTRA property" http://www.ridemtra.com/index.htm

    If that don't tell you what you need to know I can tell you more.:deal

    sieg,

    Are you going to post the tracks? I am trying to make room on my schedule for the ride, but if I can't, I would like to ride it some other time!

    Thanks for all the work,

    Got my room at the Mammoth Spring Lodge and am eager to go.

    Friday will be a busy day getting to the MRTA campground. Driving to Springfield, Mo and dropping the youngest one off at college, ya for the empty nest. Driving back to Stl grabbing the KLR and off to the MRTA grounds to camp. Hopefully I'll won't be too late getting to the campground.

    Yeah, got clearance on the family schedule and the Mammoth Spring Lodge room booked. Talked with Charlie earlier and visited with him today - he is on board so we will be doubling up at the lodge. He borrowed a Garmin GPS from Joe that we will be studying up on for the ride. Really looking forward to this and will be soliciting the motorcycling gods for some cooler than usual temps for the ride days.

    I believe I just booked the last room in Mammoth Springs. Will Camp Friday Night.

    Trying to figure out if I can squeeze another ride out of my rear tire. Is there much chance for mud or is it mostly sand and rock?
