    Does the Black Mountain Campground on the ORAMM course have water?

    Planning to ride most of the ORAMM course and trying to see how many water refills are possible. I know curtis creek campground does. From some interweb searching it looks like the black mountain campground on the north side of parkway (off of 472) has water too? Can anyone confirm if I can refill bottles there?

    TIA

    There's also an ice-cold spring on the right side of the road just as it starts to climb on Curtis Creek, after the campground, piped straight out of the ground ... it's heavenly ...

    What if you started with a 100 ounce camelback and a bottle and put three more full bottles on your person and in your camelback. Drop one at the base of Kitsuma on the first climb for when you climb it again. Then drop one at what is the first aid station and 5 aid station. Keep the other one in your camel back and refill your bladder at the top of Curtis Creek. Then you can refill again where you hid your bottle at the first/fifth aid station and again where you dropped one off at the base of Kitsuma. Just a suggestion. A little more hassle but probably enough fluid to get you through. Just put the empties in your camelback.

    I have ridden many a solo epic with 100 ounce bladder, a bottle on my bike and two full in my camelback. It just keeps getting lighter.
