Man you might have to make the drive this year. Change of pace for you.Hope the other guy's will think about it too.James (TWS) not the admin. and I have arranged and done a TT (blasphemy) trip the last 2 years at Spangler. Sounds like it is time for a change to a DBA trip. It is a good week because it is a short week (almost everybody has Thurs and Friday off) not too cold yet, and just a great place to ride and camp for a decent size group.
This is a must.Dont' go starting this crap. You need to drive a little farther, and come down to Ocotillo Wells for TG. It will be shorts weather, and we won't have to worry about Painted Gorge closing. I know it's a little far, but I think you'd have a great time.
+2 or 3 for Turkey Day. I like Spangler too . OW would be one long ass haul for me.
Due tell, try 2,000 miles
Looking at my schedule, Thanksgiving week might work the best for me. Fly out Wed. Nov. 24 that way I'd be there for the 25th. What would be the best airport to fly in?
This is all providing Rack still has a bike for me.
This year I PROMISE i will get down to Ocotillo. How bout New Years for this?
Very truePainted Gorge is on the top of my list for next season. The problem is it's closed as of January 1st, every year. It would be nice to do it on a Tuesday of TG week, since my New Year trips are shorter, and lately, more eventful.
Been there. But everywhere is like that on a big weekend. The secret, is to not ride the park. There are plenty of spots to ride, and you'll never see anyone, until you're camp inbound. We do it all the time.
If you flew into bako i could pick you up on the way. You could sleep here.
James thats an offer you just couldn't refuse Rack where do you camp in spangler?? Or is it that close to your house you just go home at night?? I think it is closer to me than OW if i'm not mistaking.
but i'm down for it all
