Tentative plan is to ride down Friday night halfway and stealth camp at Samson State Park, then head in Saturday morning, camp Saturday night at a state forest, and head back Sunday

So many good state forests around Ithaca that are open to wild camping too, Yellow Barn SF is only like 7 miles away via roads and I'm gonna check other local forests for site options

You can stealth camp in my spot for free if that's easier. Haha. I'll pretend I can't see you.

If you want a catch a ride the rest of the way to Ithaca Friday night I'm crossing at the falls and driving right past rochester.

That might be cool too, I would hitch a ride with peeps who were driving through. depends on how much weekend I have available and on Nate's plans. The ride to Ithaca is a great one, just loooong

Also yeah if there's spare space at pre-booked sites, I'll pile on!

really wanna do this, but gotta put my vacation time elsewhere. i have saturday off but the drive is just too hefty for not having two days to work with.

basically it was this or d2r2 so i hope some of you are planning on going up for that later this summer! should probably start a thread

Ugh, I didn't block the weekend and am having to work Friday night and Saturday morning, so I'd end up missing most of the fun shit even if I came down after :(

Have fun and drink a BLL for me dudes

I don't trust my '00 Jetta with 180k miles making it up there and back :(

Had planned on using the lady friend's car, but she's out of town all weekend with it. fruckin' damnit. Scott isn't going anymore, so tarckpool route is out too.

Sorry I had to bail. I didn't realize it was so close to me getting back from my vacation abroad. Please post updates!

If someone on here did it, I'd probably like it. Since it was done by someone I don't know, they're a fucking idiot.

For those wondering, it was a good time! Just Braden, Andy and myself at the camp site. Drove down to FBM HQ, parked and then rode into town for coffee and a snack. Braden's compass tire blew off the rim on a steep hill while we rode through the cornell campus. Rode back to FBM HQ and watched BMXers of all ages do cool shit on the ramps and rails. Crandall and co were good people, just genuinely super nice and stoked on bikes. They ran a tour and had some of the pros do some stuff on the vert ramps. We headed back to the camp site and went for a little ride up to lake Owasco folled by 'merican sized ice cream and a campfire. Sunday morning we did a full 35 mile loop of lake Owasco. Ate some nice bagels and parted ways early Sunday afternoon.

Super stoked y'all had a good time and also bummed I couldn't make it. Sups parents came down from their cabin in Ontario anyway, so I was glad to be home in some regard.

definitely gonna make a sweet bikepacking weekend of the launch party tho smiley
