    Announcing Fall B.A.R.B.I.E. C.A.M.P. 2007

    Here we go again y'all...

    Fall Barbie Camp is coming up! Now in its 13th year, Barbie Camp AKA "BC" is a mountain bike mini-festival & campout that happens in sunny central Oregon every spring and fall. Campers enjoy group mountain bike rides, warm themselves around a big bonfire into the night, socialize, consume "our favorite beverage," wear silly clothes, tell raunchy jokes, ride strange bikes and just plain have a blast. Barbie Camp takes its name from a 3 ft. Barbie doll that is our mascot.

    In keeping with BC tradition, you'll have a chance to win 6ish months use of the beautiful Barbie Bike, a pink singlespeed originally donated by Vulture Cycles (raffle will be Saturday night; visit camp for details).

    If you have a weird frankenbike or a kid's bike, bring it. Last BC's midget bike fireside crit was too much fun. Check it out on this YouTube link.

    Anyone 18+ years of age who grasps the concept of laughing at themselves and is tolerant of filthy jokes and that kind of stuff is welcome at Barbie Camp. If this sounds like you, then c'mon out. Thanks for leaving the kids at home. Really. Nobody under 18 allowed at BC.

    Here's some BC dope:
    *FALL 2007 BARBIE CAMP DATES*: October 26-28
    *THEME THIS FALL*: Pirate. Wear an eye patch, a peg leg and a parrot on your shoulder. If you can't do that, at least talk like a pirate, okay?
    *BRANDING IRONS*: There are always a couple there... are you ready?
    *POTLUCK*: Saturday evening. Bring something to share. But don't stay home if you can't! Potluck is optional. If you don't bring something to share, then throw down some cash to the International Barbie Camp Foundation for the sake of good karma.
    *DOD CELEBRATES 20 YEARS*: Birthday party this time for the Disciples of Dirt Mountain Bike Club, born spring 1987. Birthday cake = yes! (Next year we'll be old enough to legally drink and ride. Not that being underage has stopped us in the past.)
    *BC LOCATION*: About 15 miles NW of Sisters, Oregon (45 mi. N. of Bend). Email me for specific directions to the campsite: daveysprockett at gmail dot com (Put "Barbie Camp" in the subject line lest I delete assuming spam.)
    *VENUE*: Disbursed campsite on the south bank of Lake Creek near Black Butte, Oregon. No picnic tables, no water, no nuthin'.
    *AMENITIES*: We'll supply a portapotty, firewood and probably a pop-up shelter or two (bring yours, too please). Bring everything else you'll need to camp in semi-wilderness, including water, chair, table, etc.
    *DONATIONS*: Gladly accepted. Your $5-10 donation makes it possible for us to provide the portapotty, shelters and firewood. Thank you.
    *P.S.* Sometimes it gets really cold at night. Be prepared.

    Couple links to last Fall's BC (both include plenty pix):
    Fall BC reports
    Saturday Trail 99

    Direct questions to me. Hope to see ya there,

    Amen

    Dearest Barbie,

    I pray to thee in hopes you may spare us lone riding souls from bicycle destroying mud so that we may embrace all that is your single track glory at higher speeds. May your two wheeled pink chariot make it safely to BC and for good measure turn my water into whiskey so I may enjoy it after a long ride in your bountiful outdoors.

    Sincerely and forever,

    Dahoos

    Same camp site as the spring?

    See ye there.

    well, I'm ashamed to say that this is the first fall BC in several years that I won't be at. the main reasoning is that I can't use any vacation until I've been here at the new job for 90 days. today is day 14. fock!

    have a great time kiddos.

    nope. worst part is that i've been sick this week and haven't been able to take time off.

    hey- at least i'm employed- this also means health insurance so that i can get back on the bike.

    Secured the time off in negotiations for new, current position.
    Will load van with bikes, provisions and libations and drive it to nestled cove settled in the Cascades. Will embark on adventurous rides then attempt heroic feats fueled by said libations. Thence to reprovision and embark yet again on adventurous ride, this time hanging on, just hanging on, fueled by humility and pride.

    :::::::: Update Sunday 10/14/07 ::::::::

    As I write this there is less than 2 weeks until THE EVENT. About an hour ago I got back from a weekend in the BC Zone -- good times. Conditions were more like June than October: temps in the upper 60s, sunny skies, dry terrain, although the bright yellow aspen leaves did indeed shout "Autumn!"

    I'd post photos but I was a dope and forgot my camera. Trust me, it's awesome over there right now.

    Barbie's time is coming... don't let her down... but if you do, don't let her up...

    Ride schedule...

    I know the rides are probably not set in stone, but I'm curious what time the rides start Saturday? I have to work until about 5pm Friday, so I'm not sure that I will make it to camp Friday night. I intend to make the Saturday ride not matter what, so please fill me in if at all possible.

    Is trail 99 on the roster of amazing trails? Hope so!

    BFE, ChrisCrash wants to go do some Cache Mtn stuff, it will be a little longer ride but still lot's of fun. I'm sure some others will be planning on T99.

    Figure on being to camp by 9am, most likely that will be early but you never know.

    Are you willing to lead a trail 99 ride? We did it last year and loved it. I'd be stoked to do it again, but without Nat, or another local to lead the ride, I doubt we could pull it off. If you'll lead it, we will come!!

    Latest

    Less than a week to go now... Latest Barbie Camp forecast here

    As I write these words on Sunday 10/21/07 at 8am, the weatherfool predicts:
    Friday, 10/26: sunny, high 56, low 26, 10% chance of precip
    Satuday, 10/27: mostly sunny, high 59, low 28, 10% chance of precip
    Sunday, 10/28: sunny, high 60, low 30, , 20% chance of precip

    Regarding Trail 99... personally I did not get to ride it last year because I was recovering from an injury and didn't feel up to it. I'd love to do it this year if someone qualified to lead it will do so... AND Ol'Denberg leaves his silver (fore)skinsuit at home.

    Trail Request!

    After looking at Brock's pics in the rocks on the other thread, any chance we can hit Waldo on Friday afternoon? (or Sunday). If I'm there by noon-ish on Friday will that be early enough for the Friday ride?

    Also regarding T99...can we NOT make that particular left turn down into the revine this year?

    Hitting Waldo would be pretty far out of the way for heading to BC, plus my best guess is there might be just enough snow to make it not fun.

    When driving back from the Gilchrist area Sunday there looked to be a fair amount of snow up that way (Waldo that is). Plus like 'skins said: it's a long way from Baribie's hood.

    Brock...
    Are the wheels roundish? Ride it.

    I didn't know Waldo was that far away, I thought they rode Waldo on Friday last fall.maybe I'm confusing it with another weekend.

    What does everyone do for lunch on the epic rides. I'm really not liking the peanut butter bagel idea this time. About all I can come up with is a few meal replacement drinks (good packaging, taste is OK), higher calorie food bars like Cliff Bar Builder or Mojo, a crap load of Fig Newtons, or a couple of turkey sandwhiches, although turkey on ice for 3 days is litle iffy.

    Any suggestions?
