This is now on my calendar. Will Alex be there?

Not sure, I haven't seen him in a couple years.

I will put you on the list.

I'm still IN. Riding the Super Duke all weekend isn't going to be an issue. The leg is doing OK. Even a day of dirt roads (should I trailer my 530 up) would be OK. But that's only if my son Chris decides to come down on his DR650 (he is tentative at this point).

I've had a few ask about payment, PayPal works, cash works, a really good bottle of bourbon works, just please don't pay until you're sure you'll be there so we can avoid having to send refunds.

Mrs. Smoker would like to know if there are any food allergies that we need to be aware of so we can plan the menu accordingly. We are accustomed to accommodating gluten intolerance, peanut, dairy, etc. The current plan is baked oatmeal, donuts, and fresh fruit for breakfast on Saturday, and taco salad Saturday night. If there are any other requests, please let me know. Weather permitting we will have a bonfire both nights of course with hot dogs and smores.

What's your favourite Bourbon?

If y'all haven't had Angel's Envy yet, it's a wonderfully smooth bourbon blend that lends itself nicely to sippin', maybe a rock, maybe a splash. It's far too good to use as a mixin' whiskey.

My current favorite is Makers Mark 46, Mrs. Smoker is a fan of Evan Williams Honey.

I've not had the chance to try Angel's Envy, I've heard it's really good.

I've got enough pine down to burn a village.  Would you like me to bring some wood for the fire?  I can bring some whole rounds and a couple axes and we can play man games.  :)

Hmmm...sharp things and alcohol, what could possibly go wrong?

There should be plenty of firewood on hand but feel free to bring your scraps.

Perhaps we're envisioning different sized fires.  :) 

I don't drink.  I'll be fine.     ;D

Sad-face update: :cry: I'm out. Looks like my planned riding trip east must be replaced by visiting a very ill friend.

I was really looking forward to seeing those I knew and meeting those I haven't. Hope you all have a wonderful time; drink some bourbon for me!

Sorry to hear this BJ. I hope your friend will be ok. I will think of you while sipping on that bourbon.

With knee surgery now scheduled for April 12th, I just went to about 20% possibly being there at this moment.  Those odds should improve a bunch if surgery goes well and the healing is quick.

We actually have a cabin less than an hour from there, closer to Dushore. Put me down as a tent camper. If the weather is crappy that weekend, I may or may not cage it to my cabin and plan to drop by for dinner or something.

Definite maybe. :P

Replaced the (now 15 year old) Honda relays on the VFR yesterday.  The fuel prime circuit is operating at 100% in the garage. 

A few test rides are in order before the meet!

My son Chris tells me that his DR650 fired up yesterday and thinks he is good to ride on Saturday. So I guess that means I will have my 530 (probably trailer it there).

Has anyone planned an all-day dirt road route yet? If not, is anyone interested in doing an all-day dirt road ride?

I believe there are endless north/south routes between route 6 and route 120 (or I-80 farther to the south) to link together.

I managed to cobble up a 225 mile route that runs to the southwest (out toward Woodward/192). Complete guesswork on my part, just trying to string together dashed (dirt) roads in Garmin Basecamp. No idea if any of it is good. The stuff I am familiar with is farther west than you can reasonably get to from Hillsgrove.

Bummer Eric.  I can take your husky on the off road ride and get lots of pics of you don't want it to miss the meet.  :)

Shane, is there any kind of grate for putting stuff over the fire? 

There *might* be a very large pot of chili showing up for dinner Friday night.  Campfire chili...cowboy style...buncha folks sittin round the fire ladling dinner out of a pot.  Yup.

So some of you were having trouble finding the address on Google maps, so I drew you a picture.
Just turn onto Rinella Dr, then right on Ethan Dr, the cabin is the first drive on the right. You'll see the pavilion with the cabin behind.

Dunno for certain.  Heading to MI right after the meet so Kim might stay home and prep for the trip.  I'll probably shoot for early to mid afternoon Friday.  Which means I'll probably get there around 5.   :-\  If the UP is still under several feet of snow by the end of the week, we might bag that area and Kim and Hemi might come along.  Game day decision.

What are your other plans?   :lol:   The UP looks to be wet and cold for the foreseeable future. 


I'm definitely out now.  Since surgery deductibles are now showing up, I'm back to work on Saturday and begging for full time hours for a few weeks to get this behind me.  The best part of it all?  I went back to Lowes and they gave me a nice raise for coming back.   :smiley_thumb:

Not quite so much rain would be good.  2 still in.   Game day may head for the sun if it looks like PA will be under water.  Hope not!

Meh, I decided to stop believing the internet and called someone who works at the visitor center near where we want to camp.  She said it's all good.  There's still some snow that blew in off the lake that has a couple small dirt roads closed but only a couple.  I like the idea of having nobody else out so I think we're going to go for it.  We have good gear and 60 lbs of propane and a rig that doesn't leak air like a screen door so I think we'll be fine.  Probably not as bad as being stuck in RMNP waiting out the windstorm of the decade at 17 degrees before the wind chill.  :)

Since there will most likely not be any cell service at the cabin, the land line # is 570-924-4756. Feel free to give this to your emergency contacts.
If you would like my cell #, send me a PM and I'll give it to you.

I plan to be there mid-afternoon, Mrs. Smoker around noon. If you are having difficulties of any kind you can call the cabin and we will do our level best to get you help.

The weather will be 72* and partly sunny all weekend. 8)

Even if it isn't, has anyone ever regretted going to any of these events?

So, in a perfect world, I'll be in PA before you guys.  I'll aim for arrival at the cabin after 5pm, and before dark.  :thumbsup:

edit: As many of you are currently in PA, I am unlikely to beat you there.  following that clarification, my anticipated arrival time at the cabin stands  8)
