    This year we are staying at Winom Campground. Coordinates are 45.011620, -118.640627

    There are a few group campsites. We'll see what's available when we show up, and adjust accordingly. Access should be easy for those towing larger rigs. The campground is about a mile of gravel from NF-52 on a downhill (easy) road. I have seen 5th wheel toy haulers at camp. NF-52 is paved all the way.

    The elevation at camp 5,000 feet. Plan for some cold nights.

    This trail system is within the confines of the Umatilla National Forest.

    Trail map: http://nwtra.com/files/2019/04/WinomFrazierOHV_Map_20181001.pdf

    Planning is very loose. Ride, relax, sleep, and repeat. Just like our other PNW ADV events, there won't be any major organizing going on. Show up and join a ride. You are responsible for yourself, your bike, etc.

    Ukiah is the nearest town. There's gas (pricy and comes with an attitude, regular fuel only) and a small grocery store. I will most likely pack all my needs at home.

    Besides trail riding, there is a lot of fun dual sporting around, and big bike friendly. Some of us would be able to provide fun route suggestions to anyone that is interested.

    Here is last year's event. Photos of the trip start on page 3.

    Lets ride!

    (Notes to myself for the next event: gas locations, cash/credit card in Ukiah, no cell signal at camp)

    Right on. We rode together at Pinemont with Mike and his son a few weekends ago.

    I am currently planning on getting there to ride on Thursday. Not sure yet if I will arrive on Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

    Well ... morning might be a bit too optimistic. I probably won't get there in time for an afternoon ride.

    Maybe? I'm trying to pull together this rally bike build for an event next week, but that may not happen. Since the tiny-home and trailer are still hooked up, I'm tempted to head out tomorrow for a one-nighter, including some riding Sunday morning. Still not sure, though.

    Great weekend with an excellent group of riding buddies!

    The Umatilla National Forest offers spectacular scenery. The trails were in very good condition, and our group camp site made it for a very enjoyable stay.

    Got there late on Wednesday to find @Stupidshoes3 had picked a great spot. The previous tenants were also very considerate.

    Thursday morning we got going early and hit some trails we didn’t get to ride last year.

    Joe arrived and proposed we go explore, so we did.

    Silver Butte. There used to be a fire lookout here.

    We came across many hunting campsites. Some very elaborate with outhouses, corrals, and even one with running water.

    On Saturday, the temps started to rise. We’ve had cooler days up till now.

    Back at camp, we decided it was time to cool off. So we packed up some beverages and headed to Big Creek.

    And finished the day with some games back at camp.

    That looked great! And now my FOMO is pegged. Bummed I missed it, but I did get the rally bike almost all the finished.

    I look forward to getting out there. Perhaps another mission this fall?

    It was great to see the crew Saturday! Richard and I got in 20 miles before his little toe met the log. He's still hopping around a bit. That creek sure looked good.
