Broken Arrow Run, Aug 2-3

Postby joe » Wed Jul 23, 2014 9:34 pm

TDC's Summer campout tradition returns to the Cascades with an epic run to Diamond Lake, Aug 2-3

We'll leave Eugene about 11am from El Super Burrito, 2566 Willamette St, Eugene. 150 mile ride with gas and lunch stops. The route will take us to Rice Hill, Oakland, Sutherland, Glide, stopping for the day at Broken Arrow Campground at scenic Diamond Lake.

After arriving, you'll pitch your tent, check out the lake, grab some grub and enjoy beverages and a roaring camp fire. YES, this is a camping rally.

We are restricted on the number of vehicles, so please, keep it to scooters. We'll have a support vehicles and will be able to carry your gear from Eugene to the site and back. Also, adults only and no fireworks!

We'll be deep in the woods, so TDC will have 24 hour sasquatch guards on duty.

For those traveling from outside Eugene, PM Joe if you desire a place to crash friday night. We'll have something fun going on in Eugene friday night as well.

WARNING: this ride is for seasoned veteran riders with well running scoots.

Saturday forecast at Diamond Lake is calling for 50% chance of thunder storms.

Thoughts? Alternative plan?

we could book Armitage group site. booz is allowed. do a good ride during the day

we would need to book the park Thursday... for Saturday. thoughts?

So far everything has gone the east side of the Cascades, Diamond lake is on the west side. Saturday night is forecast with reduced chances of afternoon activities, as compared to Friday night.

My post must have pissed off the lightening gods, because they demonstrated a dry storm for an hour last night right over my house. :o
