    There’s a rumor “Nasty Ned and his Nine Nasty Nose Pickers” might show up.

    Hey Mike,
    We’ve been camped at Giant city for a week…..don’t know when we’re moving elsewhere?
    Going to catch some more music at the Vulture Fest today.
    My favorite is the Iva’s John band today.

    Forget that and come down to the East side campground at horshoe lake and visit…..campfire tonight .
    Will be here for a few days……..it is beautiful here.
    I’ve camped at the West side many times…..it’s so much better over here.
    Went thru Anna 2 days ago after boondocking at Walmart and restocking supplies.
    Found a guitar and amp I want at Mayberries . Couldn’t haul them on my 250.

    I’m parked at the camp hosts spot….nice.
    He ain’t here….might try to collect camping fees

    I think somebody is going to have to kick me out of here.

    The East side has always been gated for me……probably late in the year when I was there …….gates open now.
    May close it for winter?

    West side is open all winter I do believe.

    @BigDogAdventures

    I am planning on wandering down to the general area this weekend. (Friday afternoon) Could you get out on some 250 sized tracks? I am planning this as a shakedown run for a BDR trip. I will have all my camping stuff with me on the bike. (or in the truck) But I want to camp off the KLX 250 at least 2 nights.

    @Old 179 says he is gonna send me some places to ride over near the Hidden Springs area over in the SNF.

    Something you would be interested in?
