Colorado is definitely a mid to late summer time frame, a little snow (inches) is fun, but alot (feet) not so fun , check with Fritz but I'm sure they will be riding the sleds for another month or so at least. Arizona in March works too.

Here are some of my thoughts on Force ride 3
Oregon for me is primo and our friends from Canada could readily participate bummer
part is that riders from south and east have long haul, having the event on forest service land we might have to have a event permit with all it in requires

Colorado is awesome place and it is almost in center of the US so every one in states
would have fair chance to attend it would however be be long haul for the Canadians
also the season for a event like this is rather short, to find a resort that could handle us all with peak tourist at the same time might tough

Arizona is stunning with all the canyons and diverse landscape having lived there the only
time would be nov. thru mar. that would tough travel for me and any one else from north
the chance of snow storm is while traveling is good having done that it would be something that I would think twice before do, a year like we Had this year in the northwest it would be impossible for me to find my to AZ

Idaho could be nice spot for the event but there not many of us to organize the event
and some areas awesome trails but could be rather intimidating for novice riders

no matter where we decide lodging eating and potential permit is going to take some effort to overcome

Viking, no worries about the ride being on Forrest service land, or needing permits, this is the UNofficial husaberg force ride, nothing more than a bunch of friends getting together and riding. Permits are only needed for racing or organized (advertised public) events, we do this kind of thing all the time.

You should see the Forrest Service rangers face when they pull in and see one of BOSS's runs! The whole riding area is a ghost town accept one staging area has 200 people in it! The rangers don't have a single thing to say about it, it's just Rick has a lot of friends, who also have a lot of friends, and they bring a friend etc. The look on the Rangers face says"there is something wrong here, but i can't quite figure out who to pin it on" so they ask around trying to figure out whats going on, and all they get is "I am just here riding with my buddies" so the ranger leaves looking rather confused, as to why everybody decided to stage out of the same area. It is kinda funny, but in reality, that is what the area is for, and there is nothing Illegal about it.

I think this permit thing is a discretionary interpretation of the local forest ranger if he
is a motorized loving fellow we most likely wont have a problem, but if he a offspring of
the sierra club it could very well become a problem, bottom line is I don't know your
ranger but I hope you do know him well
we have a ride here in spring where we ride 35 miles to town south of us then back home
this ride have going on for over 30 years. in the late ninety's we got a new ranger and
he wanted to make stand since they where 75 riders it had to be organized ride keep in
mind there had never been entry form or anything to make it organized this is what we
where told if you advertise, take an entry, or even order up honey bucket it is a organized event, now this ranger is the sierra type ranger the previous ranger was the
opposite, so our solution to the problem was to say that we are not going to ride this year and then I would tell my buddy that I was going do the ride next weekend than he
would tell his friend he was going to the ride next weekend and on and on it would be told.
all I am saying you better sure who you are dealing with

Viking, that is correct, if we bring in any honeybuckets, the gig is up! Otherwise, the ranger is a good guy, he rides and his wife is very active in protecting public access to public land. I believe we would be safe in fifty or so rider range without any permits.
