    Announcing the 18th Annual Fall Barbie Camp: Oct. 26-28, 2012
    Sponsored by the Disciples of Dirt, an IMBA Chapter (DOD)

    You know the drill… Bikes. Beer. Bonfires. Branding irons. Everyone over 18 is welcome. Under 18… not. Barbie Camp is not a racing event! BC is pure fun — no posturing or puffing up allowed. Just good times with fun folks.

    Potluck Saturday evening so bring something good to eat and enough to share. Couple kegs will be provided courtesy of DOD's brew sponsor Ninkasi Brewing.

    The dispersed BC campsite is near Camp Sherman on Lake Creek between Suttle Lake and Metolius River. This is NOT the same place as Spring Barbie Camp. Directions to Fall Barbie Camp here. There's nothing there except a beautiful creekside campsite, however DOD will provide a portapotty, firewood & hoppy refreshments. If you want water to drink, a canopy or picnic table or whatever, you must bring it. Warning: sometimes it gets very cold at night. Plan accordingly.

    The Barbie Bike will return… we'll do the usual Saturday evening raffle… you could win the use of the Barbie Bike 'til Spring BC '13. Be there!

    Friday, Saturday and Sunday rides will depart camp around 10am each day. Maybe earlier if we decide to ride someplace far away. Rumor has it the Pole Creek Fire burned across Trail 99 so that's not going to be an option this year but the good news is there are plenty of other fun trails in the area. Within striking distance are Peterson Ridge, Cache Mtn, Suttle Lake/Suttle Tie, Green Ridge, Smith Rocks, MRT, even Lookout Mtn in the Ochoccos plus numerous singletracks around Camp Sherman (including the northernmost section of Metolius-Windigo).

    Please bring an extra table for Saturday evening's potluck if you can. Thanks. Oh, and don't forget your camp chair.

    Please make it RAIN, or the bonfire and trail 99 won't happen.

      Yes please!  A nice soaker in 21 days would be perfect.   I would even like to see a few sprinkles between now and then.  The trails and forest really need it.

    I'm pretty sure Trail 99 was taken out by the Pole Creek Fire. Peterson Ridge Trails are still closed as well. First rain is coming though….

      I didn't really study the map that showed the burned area.  I know trail 99 and all access to the area was closed….but not sure if it burned.  Anyone?

    I have the bad news here.  Road 16 was essentially used as the fire break on the south / souheast side of the fire. Everything on the north / west of the road from Three Creek Lake down to the top of the Peterson RIdge Trails burned. I can confirm that from a view I had at the top of Broken Top a few weeks ago. I obviously have no ideal if the trail is ruined or not, but it was dfiitely in the heart of the burn. 

    Apparantly the Peterson Ridge system is just about all opened up again. The top most bits of the east and west legs are techincally closed. The Peterson Ridge trails were on the opposite side road 16 and were not burned. 

    I'll try to post some fire pics.

    Bring pop-up tents if you have them, and tables are nice to have.  Don't foget your personal camp chair and re-usable drinking vessel as well. Fenders might be a good idea.  Lights for cruising around camp at night. Tools.  Spare parts.  Leather items to brand.  Extra food and snacks.  Glowsticks.  Musical Instruments.  Whatever you think would be good to have.

    Just talked to Eurosport in Sisters and last they heard all areas closed to the fire are still closed. That includes trail 99.

    Brr. Low thirties at night. Not sure that 4 sleeping bags, 2 liners and wool long underwear will keep me from freezing to death since I have shed some extra weight. . Is there a snuggle buddy sign up list?

    I may be hosting a relaxed pace break-off from the main Saturday ride for anyone wanting to spin mellowly, hopefully on singletrack near the campsite.  We'll play it by ear day-of
