Things that'll make the crawl better

I'll start, these are all things that Ed and I talked about saturday night.

Driver's meetings every morning
Registration/Command center in the campground in the evenings (as opposed to up in one of the cabins)

A SEC liquor store in the campground (a guy can dream right?)

Re: Things that'll make the crawl better

Josh is right on here. We were scattered out all over the campground and that resulted in confusion. Hopefully they will have the pavillion built by next year so that can become the meeting spot for everything (drivers & safety meetings, tech inspections, ride departures, pot luck and the Saturday night meal/raffle). This will be resolved for next years event.

Re: Things that'll make the crawl better

You are correct Josh. Any other sugestions? I hated being so far away from everyone too. I hope they get the pavilion done soon. I would like to see more people step up to help Ed and the rest of us out. WE need more trail leaders if it gets any bigger then what we had.

Oh yeah, they were needed. Almost everyone except Ghost and BrianHO had no experience with the trail system there. Mark and I went in 2008 but were followers, not leaders.

I feel pretty good about the trails now.

Hey I only had 2008 too. I guess I just have mad map reading, and navigation skills! :

But you did some of the leading in 2008 and you talked to a bunch of local wheelers who have been up there.

You do have killer navigation skillz, but look out......I got pretty good this weekend.

Re: Things that'll make the crawl better

How about NOT having it July 4th weekend?
Now, that's not a promise that I'll be there for 11' but, it would increase the odds for me...........not sure about every one else.
I can also see how having it that particular weekend would give some folks more time to play or, an extra day for travel.

I see both sides, just throwing that out there.
Wish I could have made it........

You would have enjoyed it Hale, other than the part about me being there giving you a hard time all weekend!
