I have my routes finished. Friday afternoon ride will be about 85 miles. Going from Eureka to Howard for dinner at either the local pizza place or Toot's burger place. It will be 54 miles there and about 2 hours and the ride home is 31 miles of mostly gravel, or we can come back via 99 if it starts to get dark.
The ride out is more of an advance ride with lots of two track/ low maintenance roads, and a few stops for a few pictures.  I think we should leave at 2pm to make dinner in time and then make it back.

My Saturday ride for the scenic route will be north for about 120 miles. stopping at Madison for gas and lunch. Hoping for a group photo at Rock Ford and a few small water crossing, then back to Eureka.

I am planning on making it this year. My wife and I are planning on arriving Friday afternoon.  We will be driving our Motorhome and will stay at the lake if we can find a spot.  Looking forward to riding with Phil Denk if he will have me.

Those of us around Friday for a ride, let's get this put together. Since many of us will be coming to the area on Friday, I'm thinking an afternoon ride. Maybe kickstands up at 12:00 or 1:00?

If anybody wants to pony up to lead, that'd be great - I don't have a GPS to follow a route with, or I'd do it. If nobody ponies up, I'll lead us but we'll basically be random/lost! :D

I think Marc Browning has a Friday route laid out if I'm not mistaken!

I know Derek mentioned it in the opening information statement of this thread but I just wanna express that everyone PLEASE be fueled up and ready to roll prior to breakfast and riders meeting and raffle etc... There will be a lot happening Saturday morning thanks to Derek's hard work and the sponsors and CMA and when we wrap up all that business we'll need to be ready to go!! Don't be "THAT" guy that has a whole group waiting on him to fuel before they can ride.....

Thanks everyone and I'm SO looking forward to this years event!!

Thanks for reiterating that point, Woody- there's a lot of moving pieces Saturday morning! I'm starting to get pretty excited! I've picked up a few of the raffle goodies, and they're pretty nice!

My son and I are coming down Friday, would love to join you Friday afternoon but I am trying to get him the "1/2 day that counts as a full day of school" (Mom's orders)  :-\before we haul down... Is there a late afternoon ride we could join??? :D
I will be trailering bikes down from Garnett, KS I am bringing a friends bike also who is joining us on Saturday.
There is absolutely no excuse for what I am about to do.

It's really hard to say but I imagine people will be showing up at all hours and very well may want to get in a ride Friday afternoon so there's always that chance! If not you can always just pick a direction to explore and head out when you do get there! Safe travels! See you there.....

If nothing else, just head north west out of Eureka, there's good stuff within 5-10 miles.

Maybe some of the people coming in later in the day might want to put together a 2-3pm kickstands up for a short ride?

Our designated camping area is Southeast of Phillips Cabin, near the public docks area. There are restrooms and a public shelter there as well.
Look for the Stampede Signage!!
Cost is $7 for regular camping / $12 for camping with electric

Who/where do we pay for camping?
