I am an experience tourist who just moved to Michigan and was looking at doing the DALMAC. However, I have no interest in paying $240 to have someone carry my stuff for me. I can do it just fine on my own. Has anyone ever been a DALMAC bandit? Has anyone ever just gone on the ride without paying? What was your experience? From what I understand, they can not kick you off the public road and you can just follow all the other riders but without the benefit of having sag support. I also hear that you can not go over the mighty mack at the end of the ride. What about camping? Do they let you camp with everyone else in the school fields? Are they checking for your name tag or something to see if you are registered? What else should I be concerned about? Does everyone hate you for just tagging along?
