Come hang with VB40ADV and ADVRIDER.com on November 15th- 17th. We will be discussing group rides around the campfire. Blaze from VB40ADV will be the contact for all veterans that want to attend. We hope to see you there!
You are responsible for yourself and your camping needs, but the staging area is huge plenty of room for all. If you decide to drive a rig, and can grab a tote/bundle of firewood from home it will help. Bring a beverage you can share, and your own food to cook. This will be much like the Crooked River camp out, except you can ride trails right from the campsite!!! If somebody wants to do more organization on food, rides, carpooling post it up on this thread and go for it. The last few years we set up at this exact spot and it was perfect…43.786062, -121.030585 (Paste that into Google Maps). There is a fire ring and picnic table there.
East Fort Rock has trails appropriate for Adventure Bikes to get some trail riding under their belt, and other trails that will challenge more advanced riders. It’s all well marked. It seems like a good place for a novice/beginner to learn to ride also, so no excuses. See the COHVOPS newsletter for the latest information and EFR trailmaps. Last year some of us rode Millican South on Sunday on the way home and that was AWESOME, and a nice change of pace!
Heavy Snow, Heavy Rain or Arctic Cold front, may cancel the camp out (or at least THIS rider), but it had better be EPIC. Even in “good” weather, expect cold temperatures at night so bring the “winter bag” or extra blankets etc. It was especially cold last year, so carry that extra layer.
