I'd be down for a late afternoon ride as well. I'm still up in the air on my route but I guess I should arrive before 1 pm. Still would like to find someone to ride out with. If there is any one out on the right side of the state that would like to ride on the 16th let me know. I'll even meet someone along the way.

Anyone know if Camp 5 will be open or closed? Took my Xterra over that last fall and thought it would be a cool ride. I know some of you guys have mantioed it as well.

Yeti, that would be a good afternoon ride on Thursday, yes?

Yes, Camp 5 will be open....no, you will not be seeing The Yeti in Camp 5 this time around.  Still a little bit of shell shock from last June, and I'm bringing the GS - plan on staying on relatively smooth fire roads, mostly two-up.

EDIT: You can't get to Camp 5 through Galena anymore though - sucks, 'cause that was an awesome water crossing!  :(

Bummer!! Can't get there from Galena anymore? >:(
Didn't know it was Camp 5 that brought your weekend to an end.
I can't say as I blame you. Maybe I'm thinking of another trail.
I went up over the Hill past Vinegar Hill Cemetery. Lots of logging up in that area last fall. Lots of up and down and pretty decent road actually but tight in places. Plenty of room for skidders though. Do I have the wrong road?

so that road past galena is closed before the first water crossing, or is it closed somewhere farther down the trail before camp 5.  have yet to get my map, sorry for the dumb questions, i just can't see how they would have closed that trail as it was big and wide enough to drive a bus down.

if it is closed it should be past the water X-ing as there are several access roads to private property past the X-ing?

Well, here's the new MVU map of that area:



Sure looks to me like the trail stops right at the water crossing...will have to just wait and see I guess. (I added the green highlight.)

Yes, Camp 5 is my nemisis...I will conquer it again, one day.  Just not during this rally...bringing the wrong weapon for that battle!   ;D :evil

Count me in, but no camping.  I live up Nemo Road so I'll just go home at night.  I'm planning on being there the afternoon of the 16th for whatever!  And, I'll be there every morning thereafter.  However, I also have my 3rd grandchild due at the same time, but I already told them NOT to expect me.  After all this is a DDSR rally!  Can't wait.

Is that the december version of the map? if not it is not correct, call the FS for the new version. Mine is at the office but I will take a look in the morning. Just because it isn't part of the trail system doesn't always mean it's not still a road, the whole thing is confusing as hell and even the FS can't expalin it??

This is the current color version that they have online only.  I guess I just assumed it's up-to-date.

Don't really matter to me, I ain't goin' nowhere near that place!   :o ;D
