I plan on attending again this year. It is always a good time and great to visit with the usual attendees

I have never gone but thinking I would probably attend this year. Looks like a good time and I love that area of Oregon.

I might just be passing by at that time on my way to Idaho.
If you see someone just passing by, wave. That may be me.

Re: Who's In - John Day, OR

Don't know how many of you guys are into the off pavement styles of riding, but for those who are, have you ever run up through Big Summit Prairie? You can make a loop up through and back around, coming out at either Mitchell, or 13 miles east of Mitchell on Hwy 26. Beautiful this time of year. And if you look really hard, way up high, you can still find snow to play in!

Re: Who's In - John Day, OR

Thought, just for the heck of if, I'd follow up on the photos I posted of the Big Summit Prairie. I was up fishing the rivers the other day and had some cool experiences. First, I'm headed east on my bike and see what I believed to be two dogs coming straight at me on the Hwy. Turns out to be three antelope running straight down the road. Jumped off about 20' from me. While fishing I had a bald eagle circling me. Had a duck land in the pool I was fishing - never saw me. Then on the way out ran across the heard of wild horses that roam up there. Probably 40. Was a pretty good day. Beautiful area to ride.

Hey guys, I will be getting in around 9:00 pm on Thursday. I need two camping spots for my tent and one for Lance, he will join us Friday afternoon. The weather looks good, should be great time as usual.

Re: Who's In - John Day, OR

we will try and save you a couple spots. Watch out for the horned rats that time of day. I assume we are attempting to get the spots by the concrete pad again?
