    12th Annual Wallowa Valley Adventure Jamboree
    June 7, 2018 thru June 10, 2018
    Thurs. - Sun. but you can come early and stay late.

    Log House RV Park and Campground
    66258 Lewiston Hwy (Hwy 3)
    Enterprise, Oregon

    877-426-4027
    http://loghouservpark.com/

    Schedule of what is happening is in post #3 below

    Tent camping: No reservations needed, just state your IN, show up, and pay at the office when you get there.

    RV camping: Call the Log House for rates and to make a reservation 1-877-426-4027

    Moteling: Book your room early (now), the rooms fill fast with other activities in the area.

    When you arrive: Register for your camping in the office. There is a variety of tent areas that you can camp in. Check them out and set up where you want to be. If you aren't staying at the campground come on in and join us at the group area.

    Morning coffee: Yes, we have it and it's usually ready by about 5:00 am. Bring your coffee mug. I will have sugar and creamer. If you forget your cup there will be disposable cups but trying to be at least a little earth conscious we're trying to keep the use of them at a minimum. There isn't a charge for the coffee but I will put out a donation can and if you want to throw some pocket change in the help pay for the coffee.

    Group area: Along side of the park office is a canopy with tables where the coffee will be. There will be a map with suggested rides marked and Benchmark Atlases are a good resource for the riding in the area.

    Area Road Conditions: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/wallowa-whitman/alerts-notices/?cid=stelprdb5295221

    Lolo Pass (hwy 12 between Missoula and Lewiston) road conditions: http://ravallirepublic.com/lifestyles/recreation/article_39d771a0-ba80-5c75-92e6-c96616bcf0a4.html

    Thing are free flowing and often a bit of a cluster however they always work. ADVers are great at entertaining themselves and don't need much structure to have a terrific time. Riding plans are usually made in the evening in the camping area and at the bon fire. In the morning small groups will ride out heading for the plans they made the night before. There are all types of riders and rides. For those that are new to the event and haven't met anyone yet it doesn't take long to meet people and be included in the fun.

    There will be small white boards in the group area if you are looking for others to ride with check there. You can also indicate you are looking for someone to ride with on one of the boards. Indicate what type of rider you are = Spirited, Average, Like to smell the roses, Slow, etc.

    Every year I asked people to wait for the new thread, every year people get excited and post it on the last years thread and every year I move the INs to the current year. ADVers dance to their own tune and that's what I love about all of you. :raabia

    Schedule
    As with all things ADV - everything is subject to change but I will try to keep things at least close to the schedule.

    5:00 am Coffee will be ready. Bring your own mug. There will be a few disposable cups but your own is better.
    Asotin ride:
    7:45 am Leaving camp for those already at camp. This starts as a fun paved ride on Rattlesnake Grade to meet with others in Asotin, WA.
    9:00 am Meet at the Cenex gas station in Asotin - 204 1st (Hwy 129).

    Lunch at Troy - when ever the ride gets there.
    The ride will be led by Sorebutt and MtnSeeker.
    Over the years this has been a highlight. It's always a fun ride and a good way to get things started. Big loaded bike and newer rider friendly. Scenic ride with stops along the way.
    Evening: the bon fire will be lit and new friends will be made.

    Friday June 8, 2018
    5:00 am Coffee will be ready.
    7:00 am
    Breakfast.
    8:00 am until 9:00 -
    Poker Run 1st check point in camp. The route will take you to Troy for your last checkpoint, where you can enjoy lunch, get fuel and ride back to camp seeing sights along the way.
    5:00 pm - Slow race in camp. How slow can you go?
    More bonding around the fire.
    There will be white boards in the coffee area to post a ride if you are looking for a riding partner for Sat.

    Saturday June 9, 2018
    5:00 am Coffee will be ready.
    7:00 am Breakfast.

    It's a day to choose your own ride. There are many suggestions.
    Check white boards to see if what has been added.

    8:30 am; tour of Sunrise Iron http://sunriseironllc.com/
    All day in Joseph: 29th Oregon Mountain Cruise (vintage cars): http://oregonmountaincruise.com/
    5:00 PM or there about: Swap meet. Bring your motorcycle/camping related items and someone else might have a need and be willing to give you a few bucks for whatever you have. Be sure to mark the items with price and your name.
    5:00 pm - Slow race in camp. A second chance to show how slow you can go.
    8:00 pm - Group photo - meet in front (east side) of the office.
    Story telling at the bon fire.

    Sunday June 10, 2018
    5:00 am Coffee
    6:00 am breakfast starts
    Goodbyes said and head home after a fun weekend.

    Breakfast are usually available until people stop coming for them. A couple hours?

    Things in Troy, OR were closed last year and I'm happy they are open again. Hopefully we can provide a little support to help them stay in business. It's a fun place to go and it's nice to be able to fuel up and have lunch.

    This is Troy, OR

    This year I'm not coming. Nope.

    Well,...dooya think the reality gods even read ADV?
    If not....I'm IN !!

    New to advrider, but a long time rider, ride a lot of technical single track, but looking to branch out to more dual sport & adventure riding, should be a good chance to meet some fellow riders in the area and do some xploring.
