Get your bikes in good running order, dig out your tents and folding chairs.

Only 10 days until the Devil Hunt!

Add another GearUp to the list: I'll be trailering up from Florida & picking up my brother Vince as monkey.

Haven't made it for a few years. Last time I attended solo, did not get stuck but kept bouncing off of trees. Ripped off an engine-guard & fuel-line, had to bend headlight-housing back into place; great fun! I think Jay awarded me a T-shirt that year... Hoping to be there Friday morning.

So packing and prepping has begun. Last night I loaded the TW on my carrier and brought it to work this morning. Transferring to my friend Roberts Toy Hauler and he'll bring it down to the campground for me. He rides an XT225 so we'll do some dual-sporting and he's interested in Urals too. Couple other 2-wheel off-roaders may appear as well throughout the JDH. With this many days I want to do as much 2 & 3 wheelin' as possible.

I'll be loading the Ural tomorrow on a trailer and filling it to the brim with firewood. I have to address re-setting the shift lever limits prior but hopefully that will work out. I'll also be bringing my XR250 (the TW is "buddy-bike" nowadays).
Sunday, Monday & Tuesday I'm jammed at work with 16-18 hour days so have to do all this tomorrow.

Plan is to leave for Turtle Run Campground on Wednesday and stay till the final ride on Saturday. Maybe stay for dinner too.

Rich, what do you suggest as a good woods cigar for next week? Looking for a bit of variety. May head over to J&R during lunchtime today.

Last night loading the TW:

Sweet, JaxRog is coming! Long-time, no see!

Wex, as for what cigar to bring don't bring one...bring a dozen!
I always like having a bunch to suit the mood and length of smoking time.
Picking just one is hard.
I like to smoke something lighter in the morning, usually something with a Connecticut wrapper like a Gispert or 5 Vegas Gold.
Just back from a ride I light up something medium bodied, robusto-sized and a little nicer like a Tatuaje or Fuente Sungrown.
Robusto or corona gordo-ized means I can finish it before we head out to dinner.
After dinner, around the fire I break out the good stuff. Opus X, vintage stuff from my collection like 10yo+ Camacho Liberty, etc.
I usually smoke two at night so maybe a churchill, toro or torpedo size and a robusto.

He's new in the last week. Major topics of conversation around the lunch counter include, speculation of how long before someone tries to take "Jersey" for a midnight "ride", How to chain him down, and creative methods of booby traps, along with the usual Who?, how much?, Etc. He's been a real hit so far.

Hey Jay did they hang the saw up in Lucille's?

I did a little dirt riding today...blew the final drive.
I have it apart, three teeth on the ring gone.

I got hold of Terry before he closed up shop and parts will be on their way Monday.
I have a "spare" but it's apart but mostly functional, need a bearing.
Going to see if I can't cobble up a working final drive between them tomorrow.
Yay, the joys of Ural ownership!

Yes, they have your saw in a prominent place on one of the window sills, I smile at it often.

So it'll be you and Ken putting on the first "tech sessions" :lol:
You know me, I've had my engine out and apart the day before a hunt, nothing like a deadline to get things done :cheers:
