A SoCal Stroms group is looking to put together a meet and greet for 3/13... or for subsequent weekends if there's interest... we're thinking about a camping site so people can come from anywhere and camp (to save $$) if they want or they can just stop by to meet other riders...

here's one plan (feel free to chime in) ... find a reasonable campsite centrally located... have a time window for the meet... say 11-1... set up a BBQ pit so people can bring burgers or whatever food they want... then riders can come from any direction and meet... riders can also have earlier meet spots from N, S, E, W... so some riders can meet and ride to the spot... then we can plan a group ride from there... I know many don't camp and may just want to stop by for the meet or stay in hotels... the point is to get a group together as early in the season to start planning rides... dates are flexible and don't have to be just once... they can be whenever and wherever...

That sounds great! Too bad for me I'm getting a Root Canal at 1:00 on that day. So many things I'd rather be doing.

rough on the root canal... perhaps we'll have another date... doesn't seem like a lot of interest though...

I'll be there, not to camp but I'll ride to where everyone meets. I'm always looking to ride...

Thinking the same thing. Just kind of watching to see how the ride develops and where the meet up place ends up being.

Right now I'm thinking either Ronald Caspers Wilderness Park or Upper San Juan Campground... both are on Ortega Highway between I-5 and Lake Elsinore... stopped by both last weekend to check out... Caspers is definitely a nicer campground but there is a manned gate and entrance fee... San Juan is just a side of the road campground a few miles east of Caspers and may be a good meet spot. There is a $5 day use fee per vehicle, but if we're not staying I wouldn't imagine having to pay.

weatherman man says another storm is supposed to move in on Wednesday just after this weekends storm. So that may be an issue for camping.

Meet and greet March 13

Cannyv2k:

I can meet you guys a week from Sat. Either Caspers or San Juan CG are fine with me. I live in S Orange County, so Ortega Hwy is an easy ride for me.

The days are getting longer and the temps higher, so I am up for a camping trip as well. Prefer middle of the week as my wife still works.

I will be there but not on to Palomar

Canyv2k:

I will be there at the San Juan Campground to meet you guys, hang out a bit but I can't stay to go to Palomar. I have family visiting and can't stay away that long.

Well, if you are heading to Julian, it sounds like you might be heading my way. I would be glad to connect up for the Julian leg. Or if you decide to go a different direction, I will stop by your campground to say hello and make that my destination.
