Eel, It sounds like the club event is out on the lake camping area, where the SoCal race was. I sent my family membership application this past week and Larry indicated at the TWMC Ghost Rider that we needed to attend two club events prior to full membership. My question is that we camp out of my van and it's always just been my two sons and I. Now my wife will be joining us and bottomline, will you all have any outhouses like at the race? Not a big deal for the guys, but my wife would look more favorably on this trip if she knew they would be there. I kind of think Annie said you would have some but I couldn't remember and the last thing I want to do is tell my wife they will be if not. Anyway, look forward to the ride. Also, do you know if we can pickup our trophies from the Ghost Rider at this club ride. I'm not a member yet so I raced and took firts in my class. I assume the "T" on the results was for trophy. It was my first enduro and I'm new to all this.

thanks for any input.

Ed

Edwin Turner ? Way to go Ed ... I saw your name = 1st D 4-Stroke. Congrats !!!!! I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you. Unfortunately, I'm not sure about the trophy question.

... I really don't think there will be public restrooms at the race. They usually rent them for the district races but I don't think we get them for the club events. But ... someone might always be willing to let you use their camper.

Hope to see you there ... I've never been to Anderson Dry Lake ... looking forward to some new terrain !!!!

I have a dark red Toyota Tacoma and a yellow Gas Gas. I'll be out there Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

Eric, Thanks for the reply. I got the results last night and it looks like we pickup trophies at the January Enduro. It also looks like there were on two riders in my class. Not such a dramatic win for a one looper, but it's my first so I happy. The ride this weekend in on BLM land and I know they have no facilities like the ones on State OHV lands, but the riding out there is nice and the trails are a blast. I'll just prepare my wife and deal with it. Like I said, in the past it has just been my two sons an I out camping so it hasn't been an issue. My wife keeps talking about needing an RV, but I say my vans almost as good. I look forward to stopping by to say hello and check that GasGas. I've never see one other then in the enduro videos.

Thanks for the info and see you all there.

On the club stuff. Do any of the TWMC guys race the desert events and will any of you all be at the Hilltoppers Nov 16 race at Soggy Dry Lake. I hear it should be fun and a bit rocky. I've raced with the guys from RUTS at both the SoCal race and the TWMC Ghost Rider, but my family and I joining TWMC and I was planning on running enduros and desert races next season and hope to ride with some of your members.

See you out there Saturady. We camp out of my Chevy Van (white) (husq-TE570, XR100) and will get there at noon or so saturday. Some real fun riding is just down the road past the turn that goes to the right to the lake bed. You just stay on the main road and there are some hills just up on the right. Lots of fun trails and cool loops. The desert race ran out from the lake bed and worked it's way back on some nice goat type trails. I hope I can re-trace some of the trails. Rocky and fun though. Beats the heck out of riding down here at Ocotillo Wells.

see you there.

Ed

Ed - quite a few club members race the district events, though I think fewer do the dez races than do the enduros. Check some of the results ... you'll see the names.

See you on race day !

I race all the district enduros and the national desert races even a few regular desert races. I usually have a good pit crew so if you need help and Im there we can pit for you too. Unfortunatly it looks like I won't make TWMC this weekend or your wife could use my bathroom. At the club races they don't have porta potties but Im sure you will have no problem finding a bathroom in someone's trailer or motorhome.

I'm out for this event, my wife just had our new baby last Saturday, so I'm pretty busy and sleep-deprived.
