How many do you expect to attend?

snopro269 09-17-2012 07:00 PM

Right now there is only 4 confirmed including myself.

CiDZillA 09-18-2012 09:30 AM

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?

At the end of this month there is an Appleton Offroad park day but the fall colors run isn't until October

Is there any more info on this run?

Abattoir 09-27-2012 05:49 PM

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! :wavey:

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.

BakedInMN 10-01-2012 09:30 PM

I have a feeling I'll be the youngest (19) ha.

snopro269 10-01-2012 11:34 PM

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!!!

snopro269 10-06-2012 10:26 PM

Even though there isn't much leaves left the trail ride is still on if anyone is interested in the meet and greet and or the trail ride.

jeepgarza 10-06-2012 10:49 PM

I am still in for the trail ride!

trail_breaker 10-07-2012 11:11 AM

Wish mine was in. Then I would be in. I've been to spider lake a million times, any plans on hitting that up sometime?

jeepgarza 10-08-2012 12:41 PM

Crap I can't make it I have drill for the guard that weekend but I'm good till December after that.

Bummer deal man

BakedInMN 10-09-2012 02:08 PM

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...
