Are ordinary street tires OK for this place? Will the SOUR director have another rear flat tire for "Show & Tell"?

That would give folks who have to travel some distance (whatever that is...) a day to get there and get set up, not to mention Friday evening/night. It appears that a "start date" of 30 May wastes a day IMO. I'd even hazard a thought about 28 May, Saturday before the holiday. Some folks have to get back to work or other frivolous activities after the holiday.
So what is consensus from the SOUR Director and the populace?

Flyaway restaurant in Summer Lake is fine, but more pricey than Homestead. Picture Rock Pass has petroglyphs and there's good USFS riding on Winter Ridge, although you could get snow in shady spots and higher elevations.
No groceries in Paisley; Lakeview is your closest source of supplies. Summer Lake General Store will have staples, but not much.
I've poked around a bit in the communities of Fort Rock and Christmas Valley and I dimly recall gas at Fort Rock. Christmas Valley has the Lost Forest, pine trees growing out of sand dunes due to a perched water table.
All in all, great Ural country. Don't know if I can get the time off of work, but I hope, too. USFS #18 will take you from Fort Rock to Bend, but will rattle your molars loose.
