Been going through my camping gear. I try to travel lite but this is for 4 nights , so the two burner campstove gets loaded , coffee pot is a must, This year I plan to bring a cot or a large air mattress for some creature comfort . Ice chest is cleaned and waiting to be filled.
See you there.

I put my ice chest on the seat in the sidecar for easy access
stove & propane
coffe pot/ coffee
I am sure I will forget something.
The town of Chelan is about 6 miles form the campground.( There is a very good WallMart in Chelan). There is a snack shop right across from the campground entrance. Last year that place was $$$ . There is a good selection of restaurants in Chelan. Nearest gas station is about 5 miles away towards town.
If anyone from the Portland / Vancouver area is headed for the CSR2 and would like to ride up together drop me a note. I am leaving Yacolt area at 6 a.m. Thursday morning . The more rigs on the road the more fun it is.
See you at the CSR2

Thanks for the FYI on Chelan. I have never been there so I don't know the lay of the land. The good thing about this run is there are a lot of group feeds. The way I see it I will only have to worry about 1 dinner, 2 breakfast set ups, campfire crap food and beer. Coffee is a must though, too. I think I may have to find a reason to go to REI today at lunch. I need a coffee pot.
Make sure you take a picture of your rig fully loaded!!
One more day to go!! I am super excited!!

I guess having the sidecar filled with your husband is better than filled with gear. My wife is not up to the long ride. She enjoys the shorter rides .
Have a great ride to the rally.
See you in Chelan

I have everything in a pile that needs to be packed and I will take care of that tonight when I get home. We are going an event called "Taste of Russia" this afternoon (held at a local beer store). They will have Russian beers up for tasting as well as food. I wanted to take the Ural to the event but w/this storm coming ... I'll just wear my Russian hat to show my support. I have been watching the weather closer than Steve Poole these days. It looks like it's going to be crap filled until up and over the mountains. I'm ok w/that. I got Frank all set up w/rain gear so he shouldn't squeek too loudly (I won't hear him w/my helmet on the and engine going anyway ... HAHAAHA!). Even w/him fillin' the sidecar I think we will still have plenty of room for everything. I think I thought this packing was going to be tougher than it's actually going to be. We plan to shove off no later than 0500.
I'm very excited. Can you tell? haha!
SEE YOU TOMORROW IN CHELAN!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's 0525 hours and I am getting ready to head out , It is raining hard enough I can not see the end of my driveway ( 200 feet ).
I think I should have packed a rubber raft for this trip.
CSR2 here I come.
