    You are now on the IN list Dhally. I'm glad you have things you are bringing for the swap meet. I suspect there will be more than one motorcycle for sale.

    Is anyone driving over from the Columbia Gorge area that might have room for some flee market items? Have a bunch og gear in good condition that needs a new home. We are riding so don't have room to pack it on the bikes. I'm in Goldendale, work in The Dalles and would be willing to meet someplace in the area. Willing to drive to Hood River/ White Salmon area for a meet up. Thanks

    Wondering if other folks have seen this beater bike special done by Rocky Mt ATV folks. $1000 a 1000 miles. One guy has a xl600 same year as my beater bike.



    Great seeing folks having a good time riding old bikes.

    I'll be going through Sunday evening or Monday morning. Suburban and trailer so should have some space for extra stuff.

    I'll be staying in Elgin for the week and out to the rally friday morning. Or earlier if I get sick of house repairs before then.

    Hey guysess,
    the air cleaner fell off my bike today. So much for JB Weld.
    But I found a good use for all those masks we now have laying around though. Got me home

    Into this late.

    Stopped by a few years ago not knowing it was happening at the time. This year would be a nice fit for a ride out IDBDR-way.

    Unless you're full-up, I'll stop by for a day or two or so. My bike, me, room for a sleeping bag, my chair, I'm good. Might toss a tent considering the thousands of minions running around.

    Saying 'Yes' seven months ago would have been silly for me. Saying 'Yes' and it's NEXT WEEK isn't iron-clad but an almost definite likely probable.

    I mean...really!

    BTW...do you know if the 39 road is open yet?

    Time to gather up your goodies for the swap meet Saturday the 26th. @LC Garage and @dhally have volunteered to help with this. They won't handle transaction/money for folks but they will help get the seller and interested buyers together.

    There will be tables & a clothes rack for displaying goodies. Be sure to mark your items with the price and who to see about buying it.

    I'll be headed to Enterprise on Monday but I will check this thread each evening and answer any questions as long as I have internet connection.

    My goal for today is to have a schedule set up and posted by the time I go to bed tonight. But, please remember this is ADV and things change often. :lol3

    As of this morning, we haven't reached 100 INs yet. 96 Ins and 11 fence sitters getting splinters in their butts. :lol2

    I could use some volunteers to help me with:
    Poker Run
    Field Games
    And judging the beaters. I would like 5 people with a little bit of bike knowledge (or not) to judge the beaters.

    I sure am looking forward to next week and seeing all of you. I have seen some of you over the last 2 years but the majority I haven't and I miss seeing you every year.

    Just finally getting around to post up. Had very hectic work schedule and was supposed to have friends visiting from out of town, that had to cancel. Might actually try to get there on the big GS. But to honor Mortimersicle, might just travel light and bring a credit card :-). Will be last minute entry.

    I'll be happy to see you even if you don't camp with us. Last minutes works since this entire event is very fluid.

    @Ladybug I'd be happy to help judge beaters. And anything that needs a truck.

    Thanks Mike. We need a truck to follow the poker run Fri. morning but I think you weren't going to be there until later Fri.

    I'll put you down to help judge the beaters.

    The first two posts on page 1 have been updated. I created a schedule that is easier to read and added more details below the schedule. I also added a poll. Please check the things you will or might participate in. It's just so we have a little bit of an idea of how many people are interested in doing what.

    If you notice I missed something please let me know.

    I'll judge beaters since mine are still in the ICU. We will be on the big bikes this year, Annsdogs first try at camping off the bikes. That will add an interesting twist. We plan on being there Thursday afternoon.
