I am working with Grizz to try and get the route data worked out.  I/we will post as soon as we figure out the best way to do it.

Any more volunteers to lead a group? We need about 6...

There is a huge fire pit down by the lake behind the clubhouse.  Might be a good place.

I have Motorola Talkabout T6510s.  I think they are only 1 watt but should be fine for a leader and a sweeper in a group.

Someone must be in charge of drags.  Someone in charge of tug of war.  Someone in charge of sport quad races.  

An area must be "sectioned" off with no riders allowed in unless they are participating in an "event."  

Unless someone steps up and takes charge there will be total chaos.  I'm planning to lead a group on the trail so I can't do it.  

Step up guys.  We must have some order or we risk losing a lot more riding area.

Good idea J.D.  The last thing we need is someone, especially a little one getting hurt!

With 250 riders this has potential to be a disaster if people let it...EVERYONE PLEASE BE SAFE!!!

I will volunteer to lead a group of sport quads by GPS running at about 7 on the Dreth scale.  I have 6 in my group now.

SkyHighT100 suggested breaking into groups of 30 or so riders.  We will need 6 or 8 leaders who are comfortable with GPS to lead the groups.

If you are willing to lead a group sign up on this thread and post the speed on the Dreth 1-10 scale with 10 being over the top insane fast and 1 being Grampa Jones slow.

Grizz - can you get the waypoints posted for all the turns from your previously recorded tracks?  This should work great to keep everyone on the same trail.

Radio communication between the leader and sweeper would be great if possible.  I have a pair of 20 or so channel walkie talkies with earpieces I will bring.

Good idea.  I will start a new topic "Rodman IV GPS."

Anyone comfortable leading a group please sign up there.

Maybe Grizz can post sequential waypoints of the trail that the leaders all follow.

249 Bikes?? Wow, this ride is going to be great. Has anyone got in any touch with media yet (TV, Radio, etc)? Just curious.. this is just  such a great opprotunity to get a good name for us ATVers. Less then 2 weeks.. I CANT WAIT!!!

I'm not too sure we need the news media other than maybe ATV magazines, etc. reporting on this.  No telling what kind of anti-ATV spin they might put on it.  (Oh my God they are destroying the forest!!!)

Just a thought...

I guess that means BYOF!!!
62  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman Dam Trail Ride IV on: January 10, 2005, 08:27:12 PM
Is it too late to order more shirts or all the late people like me?
63  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: Rodman Dam Trail Ride IV on: January 10, 2005, 08:24:31 PM
My friend who I'm coming up with this time has a 28' trailer that can haul 6 or 8 atvs plus 2 wheelers.  I will ask him if he would shuttle if someone wants to organize parking at the camping area.

It would be good if we can leave enough room at the end of the road to make a U-turn with a big rig like that to make the shuttles easier.  Can whoever gets there first direct traffic to keep that area clear?
64  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: TRAIL RIDE ON FRI 1-21-05 on: January 10, 2005, 08:14:06 PM
Thanks Id@ that sounds like a great place to "warm up" for Rodman IV!!!

What was the consensus on eating at 88 Store?  Everyone on their own or pitch in $$ for organized grub?
66  General / Group Rides & Events / Re: rodman IV trailride check list on: January 08, 2005, 01:22:53 PM
7 for the trail
67  General / Where to Ride? / Re: Ocala hunting season on: December 30, 2004, 08:35:34 PM
We rode this week around Salt Springs.  Didn't even go to Rodman and had one pretty scarry run in with a hunter in a Dodge Intrepid after only about 15 minutes.  He was cussing us to the top of his lungs!  

We rode Delancy West yesterday and had a guy come out of his house yelling at us saying the cops were on the way.  Then a couple of "hunters" in a pickup with no bed or tag started following us around.  Not sure if they were lost or just trying to mess with us.  Good thing there were 14 of us and only 2 of them!!!

Today we were riding in the area of NFS88 and 10 and I got hit in the back with a stick or rock or something that was thrown from either my tire or someone behind me.  I almost crapped my pants because we had ridden by a couple of hunters in the last few minutes.  I thought sure I had been shot!!! Shocked

One guy stopped while we were unloading and and told us where he was going to be hunting and very nicely asked that we not ride by him.  We respectfully stayed away from that area completely.  

Besides getting yelled at, stalked, and shot I thought we had a blast  Tongue

I can't imagine the horror that poor man felt when seeing his son dead.  What a trajedy.

Signed up my whole family.
70  General / Open Discussion / Re: What GPS should I buy? on: October 27, 2004, 08:47:39 PM
I am on my 2nd Etrex-Vista.  It has some nice features.  I use it on trips with my laptop connected for a large moving map.  The screen is small and hard to read for maps at least for my 40+ year old eyes.  I crushed one when I rolled my Warrior.  Sent it back to Garmin and they sent me a new one for the flat $125 repair fee.  I paid $254 several months ago.  Now if I was in the market I would get the 76C if I had the $$.

Cant go wrong with either.

Hey Guys,

I just read this thread.  My family would be interested in joining.  We are just as busy as eveyone else but will participate as much as possible.  I think that is the key.  You can never accomodate everyone, so as long as there is a large group you should be able to have enough people present at each meeting to keep the ball rolling.

Just my 2 cents.

Mike if you want to carpool to the meetings we can save some of that almost $2/gal motion lotion!
