    One last suggestion on the shirt.
    Remove the State of Florida and increase size of Turkey Totem to much larger. Like I said I - like the Totem and it should become our Logo/Symbol.

    The rest is awesome... thanks again for you efforts.

    OK guys I have taken the advice given and applied to the shirt design. Post up here if you want to order a shirt. We'll place the order by the 1st of Oct so if you want one, let me know before then. I have updated the post with the latest design. As always nothing set in stone yet so still open to changes and suggestions. Again the link is in my signature line to the post with the "In List". As far as payment goes, we may just set up similar to last year. I think we actually did pretty well just collecting money at the campground. It would be less of a hassle and I don't mind paying for them up front. If you sign up and don't make it for some reason, we could work out a shipping option.
    OK I'm done with hogging the thread for now. :beer

    It would be a hard ride to pass up if I wasn't scheduled to work that weekend. Can't wait to watch the video though!

    I might be able to make it over this year. It would be a good test for a sidecar rig I'm building to haul the KTM.

    For those of us that have not attended this event in the past, please confirm that we don't need to make any arrangements with the park for camp sites prior to the event. My brother and I plan to come up Friday and stay until Monday am. We're hoping to find a little less sand and mud! We're also both in for large shirts and willing to help if PAR's need anything.

    Flacrusher and other first timers...

    The area we use is a "public use area" maintained by the county on the Black Water River.
    There is no camp site official no check-in no camping spots no gates no hookups and no cost!

    Level area with tall Pines and cut grass. Plenty of room for large rigs to get in and out. Primitive camping so generators are a must. No dump station either. We will have a NO GENERATOR area for tent campers and such.

    There are very nice showers and restrooms available and should be open for our event...

    Black Water State Park does not have as much sand or mud as most other areas of Florida.

    We also have very mild temps in October and last year was perfect riding weather.

    DUST is always a concern if it doesnt rain. We have found that small groups work best for the DS and Adventure Rides.
    Street rides who cares!

    It seems like we have a bunch of new riders planning on trying the Trot. Welcome all...

    More details as we get closer. We still have LBL and Perry Mountain to go through. Busy times for PAR.

    Thanks for the clarification Vico. We made a reservation at Blackwater that we will cancel.
