We'll be there Honda65.

The weekend of June 15th is still a go and they have campsites available for up to about 200 people so everyone should be fine. No hook up sites are $10 per night and hookup sites are $16 per night. The trails are accessible directly from the campsites so no pushing bikes through camp required! The fees include access to the beach and dock fishing and showers which are located at the store. Cabins are also available - $45 - $65 per night - will have to haul your bike from the cabin location to the trailhead - about 1 mile or take your chances riding down the highway which is done frequently.

One nights fee is required for advance reservations and it is refundable up to 2 days prior to checkin. You can make your reservations by calling:

Beaver Lodge Resort & Campground
2430 Highway 20 COLVILLE WA 99114-9011 (509) 684-5657

Tell them you want to be in the lower campground and you are part of the Father's Day group get together!

If you are looking for a hotel/motel see info check my post on page 4 of the thread at the end of this post.

According to the Ranger Station, as long as your bike is registered in the same home state as your vehicle you are okay. Temporary permits are $8.00 and available at the Dept of Licensing here. I will post the permit as soon as I can. If anyone wants one sent to them, email me.

From the recent weather, should be great riding by June 15th.

Here's the list:

NW Spodefest June 15 - 17th, Lake Gillette, Washington

Camping:
Bbbom & Karl + 3 little ones
Firecracker + Steve
Buttonfly
Dualsporter +3?
Kevbrig & GF + 2 little & 1 medium
Vincent WR400F
Fishhead + a few

Cabins:

Hotel:

Maybe:
Gospeedracer
TTRGuy
SpeedyManiac
Kali & Kevin
Mace & clan??
Ultrachrome

The trails include the infamous and technical Batey Bould system, and the less difficult Little Pond Oreille system. Links to the NMA maps are:

Thanks—I was just going to ask this question. Looks like it will be firecracker + Steve, in the motorhome. Traveling in style now! :) I’m looking forward to it. I just hope the new bike and I will be ready for the trails!

This is Killin' me...

I can't come because of a commitment MY KIDS HAVE. It's not always easy raising kids to be responsible.

We just got 6yo daughter a PW50 and 4yo daughter is real excited to get the ancient JR50 handed down.

If we don't get locked out for dry forest, I'd like to get some of you out for my club's enduro weekend at Little Naches 08/25-26. I trail boss the Beginner Enduro on Saturday and I'd sure like FC-22 to ride it and write it!

Hope to meet you good people one of these days.....

Hey, Mace, we'll miss you at the NW SF but the enduro sounds like fun! Hopefully, I'll be ready by then. I'll have some more seat time in by then and be a little more comfortable on the KTM. What's the terrain like? What club are you with?

Might as well...

move me over to the not coming list. Too many commitments in June. :(

I'll be out in Seattle in August. Maybe I can hook up with some DRN'rs then.

i'm not sure at all about the +3, i gotta talk to the riding buds still. if they all dump on me i'll be on the maybe list, it's a long drive solo. for now i need to get the final adjustments made on the XR & go riding... if i'm lucky i'll have the parts & get my quad back together by then too.

Take me off the list as well. Some good friends we were going to visit at the same time aren't going to be there. So instead, we're coming over the weekend before. I'm still bringing my bikes, so I'm still up for a ride. I'd still love to go to Lake Gillette Sat. or Sun. Anyone else?
