I can't confirm yet but I would really like to go. I dunno if I can make the Thursday night dinner but I could meet up on Friday at the campground.

Also I was looking for a Kohl's campground in Bemidji but only came up with a resort that does not allow camping.

Did you mean the KOA Campground?

I'd love to make this but I'll be visiting my parents down in Florida for a couple weeks. Sounds like a great weekend though, have fun!

Do you guys/gals also plan things during the winter?

We usually do a few Meet and Greets sometimes in the Twin Cities or down here in Rochester, Mn where I live.
We did a spring run last year when there was about 1 to 2 ft of snow left which was pretty fun.

All ages welcome most of us guys are in late 30's to mid 40's but we have kids and wives and girlfriends with and even doggies sometimes.
The way it's looking though most of the fall colors will be done by the time this run happens but we are still trail riding anyways!!!

I'm planning on attending. Not sure about the meet-n-greet on Thursday, but will make the group drive up to Bemidji, and partake on the trail ride.

I'll be sure about my plans later this week, and will confirm here, at that time.

Sounds like fun...
