OK, let us know. You'll be close to my house if you want to tent in the yard for the night and ride the next day. Make sure the land owner can & will get a permit for a fire. :D

The alcohol should be kept on the other side of the bridge from the fire. Set up an infa-red video camera and we'll have some comedy to watch during the winter :lol:
See ya in a couple of weeks, C

Swinging bridge, a bunch of less-than 'sober' campers, nightime and a good wind. Should be comical :cheers: :lol:

Oo, oo, oooo...this looks fun! Great location!! Don't think I'll be able to make it though. Soldier on without me and take lots of photos of the exploits. Especially of the drunks trying the fly the chair all the way across Sobriety Bridge. You know who you are!
