Group get-togethers are one of the things that drew me to ADV years ago. This site isn't JUST about dirtbikes; it's about people. We used to have several annual camp outs, where everyone would gather around a fire at night, share food and drink, tell stories, make new friends and renew old friendships. Then we'd get up in the morning and ride. Many were free, some paid, but all wonderful. A select few, like FMF, were destroyed by their own popularity. If you'd just like to talk about or post pictures from group get-togethers, please do so now. My beef tonight is specify about The Elephant Ride, that annual sojourn toward the peak of Guanella Pass. I loaded my bike tonight with firewood, beer and a motorcycle, then drove up Grant looking for my peeps. No one was there. Three years ago, and for many years prior, we had 20 or more at the camp out. Last year's it was three. This began when they paved Guanell. People started to complain that it "took all of the fun about it." The fun's still there. It's just waiting for merry-makers. Come be merry. Let's commit to getting together in 2017.
