2014 Hoosier National Forest Ride--Oct.25-26

Well, this year Tpar1220 is the first inmate to ask when this falls HNF ride will be. So I got out my Ouija Board and let it pick the date. To my surprise it picked the historical last weekend in October. Go Figure! Guess great minds, both dead and alive, zero in on the same crap. Now if I can figure out if my mind is one of the dead or one of the live minds. For those of you who would prefer a different date, talk to the hand. I'm about to be underemployed and will be too busy ridin' to join in the debate . Hope to see everyone at the season opener Icebreaker, April 5-6th.

Well, its now August 26th, figured I should give everyone time to plan there late October vacation days. So here goes. The ride is on October 25th and 26th ----------------------

The 2014 HNF ride will start at the Gatesville Country Store, Restaurant, and all around fun place to visit and eat BACON. Robyn dishes out a great buffet, so come early and eat breakfast there. We have her permission to park cars, trucks and trailers in the field out back thru Sunday evening. 4525 Salt Creek Road Nashville, In 47448-8519 is the address
but the store is in Gatesville, In.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GPS coordinates of the start location. N39 15 39.59 W86 08 44.99 or another format N39 15.660 W86 08.750

The totally unofficial start time is 9:00am Eastern. You can start earlier or later 'cause its UNofficial --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The route is gravel country roads and some paved county roads. Nothing technical. Might be a dirt section if I can verify its legality--------------------------------------------------

There are motels in Nashville, Columbus, Bloomington, Martinsville as well as others spaced out from the east coast to the west coast of the USA. Don't ask me, Google it! ------

Camping can be done all over the place. It is, after all, the Hoosier National Forest ride. Yeah, Google that too --------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday's half way point is in French Lick, In. Plenty of food and gas there. My preliminary MapSource route calculates 98 miles to this point. That is usually short by 10% -----

Twin Lakes Cedar Cabins will again be our Saturday night resting and partying spot. I have dibs on cabin #2--let the madness begin. Phone #812-836-2329 or 812-549-5637

Camping is $10.00 per person. Susie at Twin Lakes requests that you stop at the office and pay her BEFORE you set up your tent. This will help her keep things organized and insure that our group is welcome in the future. It's only $10 bucks--pay up. New York State Park charged me $29.00---Twin Lakes is a bargain--------------------------------------
Campers be prepared. Last years night time temps dropped to near freezing with a hard frost. There is also camping on the HNF at German Ridge Campground--------------------

Saturday evening meal will again be at Rocky Point or where ever you choose. Tell City is about 20-25 miles from Twin Lakes (That is a guesstimate--not official) Google it------

More info on Sundays ride when I get back from re-running the western portion of the TAT--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And to Mbac--I'll get around to posting the tracks later when I have them. I have a new nail and will use the same post.

Bump

Just to remind everyone that the traditional Hoosier National Forest ride is still on for October 25-26th. The actual route is still undefined but, after consulting with Tpar, will keep it short to allow more time for partying at the camp site. Unlike the Loose Nut ride there won't be any peach cobbler unless one of you can cook.
