Douthat Munifest April 20-21, 2013

The poll from the other thread was kinda messed up (sorry bout that), but it does appear like most folks can make this weekend and it's later in the month so the weather is more likely to be warm, but not too warm (fingers crossed).

Due to the liklihood of rain that time of year, I'm looking at the cabin options; I don't mind camping, but camping in the rain makes me grumpy

So if folks would just chime in with a "body count" and family stuff (kids, etc...) then we can get put together a cabin list and see how many folks we can cram into the fewest number of cabins to keep costs down. If you must camp, then see if you can get lakeside which closer to the cabins.

When you reply to this thread, please cut and paste at the bottom, adding your name and body count to the list

Tell a friend, bring a neighbor, bikers are welcome, esp if you have some kids and significant others who are willing to put up with us while we muni!

The Details:

This munifest will take place at Douthat State Park, located in southwest Virginia, near Roanoke. Douthat State Park has an extensive trail network with trail difficulties to fit all skill levels, a lake for swimming, and numerous lodging choices.

This is a rider organized BYO gathering, so no fancy shirts, food or shwag, just riding and hanging out

All you need to know about Douthat State Park: http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/dou.shtml

And please don't be "nervous" about trail difficulty and skill levels, we will all work together so everyone rides. There is also some great road riding in the area and paved paths that meander through the park.

Trail Description: http://www.virginiaoutdoors.com/park...e-park/Biking/

Trail Map: http://www.imm-cms.com/media/destina...map_trails.pdf

If you have any questions, post them to this thread.

Body Count:

I might also prefer the tent camping over the cabin, mainly because I just bought a tent and I need to justify the purchase for myself

I'm down. My wife and kids might come, and go visit some family while I play.

Sounds great.

jrink (1) muni both days, can tent or cabin as necessary.

I'll also need to bug you guys later to borrow a muni that's larger than my 20", since I thoroughly dislike riding my 20" as a form of transportation.

I have a spare Nimbus 24 muni that you can use, it has a Duro 3" so it'll give you plenty of traction.

NB are you going to take care of reservations? Or should I say how far out do reservations need to be made?

Really looking forward to riding with other unicyclist's.
