do you know a place that rents trailers? I've called a few places and they said they dont rent them. Amen on the drained funds.

Swift you don't really hold any hope of getting in with the noobs do you? Who would EVERYONE have to pass in the regular group?

The day is split between the regular run group and the noob group. THERE WILL BE NO MIXING OF THE TWO GROUPS. Don't ask to ride with the noobs unless you wish to pay for both spots. Each group will run half hour sessions from 9-5. Still have some spots for teh noob group, and the regular group registration opens 5/15.

You can, its been done. You will need someone to help you though. You cant carry everything you need in a backpack. You will need an extra 5 gallons of gas also. You got all your gear? If you just show up with your gear I can help with the rest.

The bike does not take long to do a basic prep.
