 :banghead: I was looking at August.

I'd love to come up and hang out with you guys one day. Maybe ride 20?

The plan is definitely to do some riding on 20...we are staying at Sun Mountain Resort, which if memory serves, will not fit your criteria for accommodations. It's VERY pricey, the only reason we are staying there is due to a gift certificate.

Thankfully, Winthrop is a day ride away. We can get a grilled cheese in town though. No worries.

So, back on topic. I'm thinking Friday 8/13-Tuesday 8/17. Trip can be longer or shorter, depending on people's schedules. Route is still TBD, but centered around NE Oregon. Maybe stay in Pendleton or Baker City or somewhere else if someone has a preference.

Talked to mobilemike, and he said he was in. Anyone else? Paul? PMackie? Andrew? Chantal (you can bring your husband)?

I'm in!  I'll check with my son and see if he has any vacation left, or if he can take any LWOP.

Jr. says he can make Fri-Mon or Sat-Tues. 

He wants to know if you plan on including The Spiral Hwy on the way down (or while in the area)?
He really wants to ride that. And I sure wouldn't complain.

Not sure if we'll be that far north. Besides, the Spiral Highway is good for what, 15 minutes max? Tell him not to worry-I think we'll find better roads in Oregon.

Let's plan on leaving on Friday, 8/13 and meeting in Antelope, OR. Lots of great roads in the area--I'm thinking we can crash that night in John Day, which puts us kinda smack dab in the middle of some great riding for Saturday and beyond. Sound good?

Just in case anyone doubts there are twisties in the area.  :clap: Few of the many roads we can hit in the area.

Antelope is "A", right off 97 S.

WHoo Hooo!!!!!!!!! :clap:

I get to preface that with a ride over Mt Hood and a back road to Wamic, the 197 to Maupin and over to antelope.
Any one who wants to can crash at my house before the ride over to central Oregon.

So, how many folks are coming for sure?
Looks like Bobcat, Mobilemike, Red01 and my son, Pauly are in. 
Is PMackie still coming? 
Anyone else?

Sent mail to Paul to find out if he can make it. I also called Jeff, but haven't heard back. Looks like it might be a small group this year.  :sad:
