With Oct just around the berm, time has come to head up to Elkins Flat for the 2nd Annual Nor.Cal DRN ride. Last year we had a really good turn out with riders coming from Nevada and the Bay Area to roost. This year were going to ride 20-21 Oct.

Last year it had rained a few days before the weekend and the riding was perfect, let hope for rain this year.

There is camping at the Elkins Flat staging area and for those that wish to camp in a campground PiPi Valley campground is close by.

If you would like to get trail maps of the Elkins Flat and Gold Note / Pipi ridng area give the Amador Ranger District office a call and they will mail you the maps.

Wouldn't miss it. This time I'll be prepared to stay one night at least. :D
I'll have to look for my bike. It's somewhere in the garage. Last time I saw it, was a month ago. :eek:

Count me in again. Gotta check that tree I kicked last time, and see if it's ok.

I gotta check with the wife to see if she has to work that weekend. I'm really looking forward to going for the weekend. We're in Vancouver, WA right now picking up our Patio Hauler 5th wheel.

I will be there if I don't have a race that weekend. I had the best time riding with you and that GG in reno. I'll have my hands full with you in the woods! Hope to see you then.

You getting a 125? I heard a rumor... and stop working so hard, you're retired already.

MR. WR and his GG do get through the woods pretty well. I should be able to make it for Saturday. For those of you looking to take a crack at MR. WR on his home turf, take a number! :D

Will be there!

First time for me, but I will plan on being there and will bring the family, trailer, and bikes.

Which is the best site to camp with a 23ft trailer? I tow it with a 4x4.

Looking forward to it, been home for 5 weeks now with a broken tibia, this gives me a reason to push through rehab and get back in shape!

Mike,

mine- YZ400
hers - ttr-125l with all the BBR goodies,
sons- kx 60.

Mike,

the best place to camp is at the staging area. The staging area is a large area with plenty of shaded area to park your trailer. I will also have my 24ft 5th wheel trailer parked at the staging area. Last year we camped at the staging area and we had plenty of room for everyone. The road going into Elkins Flat is paved.

If you need more info drop me an email.

Hope to see you and your family there. Sorry to hear about the broken leg...

I will be with the Moose at the Ski Run Scrambles Saturday the 20th but maybe we can get down there and ride late Saturday and Sunday. I would like to make one of these rides.
