14th Rick's Eastern Rendezvous -- May 13-17, 2015 -- Hampton, TN

14th Rick's Eastern Rendezvous
May 13-17, 2015

Hampton, TN


at the
Black Bear Resort



Please do not call the resort for reservations
(unless you need a room Wed night)



2014 thread
2014 picture thread


sign-up deadline: April 15th



What's it all about?
Imagine 175+ ADV folks in the Mountains of Eastern TN for a long weekend, with some of the best riding in the east (dirt, gravel, twisties).... plus great company, a private resort (plenty of space indoors in case of rain), campfire, 3 great dinners and breakfasts, plenty of beer, and some bullshitting. What can go wrong?
Some random pics from last year: here - and here
Whatcha get:
Dinner on Thursday,
Breakfast and Pulled Pork Dinner (by Pork Butt) on Friday,
Breakfast and Jambalaya Dinner on Saturday,
Breakfast on Sunday
about 18 kegs of beer , root-beer, coffee, lemonade
a t-shirt, a mug, and a sticker,
door-prizes and a huge indoor area and covered decks (in case of rain)
RDV fee $77
Wednesday dinner and Thursday breakfast on donation basis


History:
The Eastern Rendezvous is the oldest annual ADV rally, and the only one in the south east. It started in 2002 as a small traveling gathering, and Rick aka Party Boss turned it into an annual event known as the Eastern Rendezvous. Sadly we lost Rick in 2012. Nobody will ever be able to be such a great and inviting host like he was, but we will keep his rally alive in honor of what he started.

One for the Boss

Accommodations:

Camping:
This includes tents, hammocks, benches, chairs in front of the fire... basically if you spend the night and do not pay for a cabin, you gotta pay $22 for camping. Please note: the camping area is for motorcycles and tents only - no cars or trailers please (there is NO trailer or RV camping at the resort)

Creekside Cabins - sold out
Shared Bunk-cabins for 4 people. Please bring a sleeping bag, since the cabins do not come with linens (a limited amount of linens will be available for rent).
Cabin rental starts Thursday - if you plan to arrive a day early, please book your assigned cabin with the resort.

Hillside Cabins - sold out
Shared bunk-cabins for 4 people (or 2) with mini-fridge (bigger then Creekside Cabins). Please bring a sleeping bag, since the cabins do not come with linens (a limited amount of linens will be available for rent).
Cabin rental starts Thursday - if you plan to arrive a day early, please book your assigned cabin with the resort.

Disclaimers : We as organizer, provide only information regarding this event. You join all events voluntary and at your own risk. We are not responsible for anything that happens to you, or your gear. Neither at the event nor while traveling to or form the event. In case of an accident, damage or loss, you and the involved persons are fully responsible to each other. You accept this by registering for the rally!

Random stuff
:
We will bring basic tools, compressor, battery charger, tow straps, a pickup truck and ramps etc., plus a basic first aid kit, including braces, splints, bandages, and painkillers.

Rides: There are NO official rides for the Rick's Eastern Rendezvous. We have individuals who go on rides and welcome you to ride along. No part of your attendance fee has anything to do with any rides. All riders are responsible for their own actions. Above all, ride safe.

Bring your fishing gear! The stream in front of the resort is stocked weekly with trout (we accept bribes in front of cleaned trout ). TN fishing license required (details see below). For license information see post 339

Pets: well behaved dogs are welcome - as long as you pick up after your pooch

Linens: Cabins do NOT come with linens. There are a limited sets of linens for the cabins available for rent - let us know if you need any.

Showers: the resort has at least 6 showers available and probably a few temporary ones as well.

Plates and cutlery: we will provide paper plates and plastic cutlery. Bring your own if you want to eat in style (and hate waste)

Parking: There is limited parking for your rig next to the resort, however we can not guarantee a parking spot, and you will not be able to spend the night in your trailer. If we are out of parking space, you may need to park at the AT-trailhead and carpool to the resort, or pay the neighbor for the use of his yard.



Directions:
1511 Dennis Cove Road - Hampton, TN 37658
do NOT use this address for your GPS - it will send yo
u up the wrong road! (marked with a red X)

If you are using a GPS set it for 205 Dennis Cove Rd Hampton, Tn. That will take you into town and to the blacktop. Follow the road until you get to the resort. You can't miss it!

disclaimer: some of the Gravel may be a bit "bumpy"

I've actually come up with a firm plan for the late train aka hangover rides this year. We'll leave from Black Bear no earlier than 10:30ish, we'll ride a bit of dirty gravel then some twisty pavement with maybe another stretch or two of dirty gravel then stop and eat some lunch, after that we'll ride back towards camp on a mix of twisty pavement with a few more stretches of dirty gravel.

Standard rules will apply. Volunteers for relay riders accepted.


Tentative routes:

Thursday: Lunch @ Hawg-n-Dawg via Beauty Spot TO FROM

Friday: Lunch @ Sharpie's TO FROM

Saturday: Lunch @ Dry Run & Watauga Lake Winery TO FROM

*note maps are color coded showing pavement in blue and dirt/gravel in red.

Terrain:
Mix of twisty back roads and gravel, steep, deep and narrow. Big bike friendly IF you're experienced riding one off pavement and at a brisk pace.

I'll be running a spot tracker this year....here's the link that will be active during the RDV.
https://spotwalla.com/tripViewer.php?id=69cf5190631648899

I started doing a little scouting for this location back in June. There seems to be a distinct lack of straightaways in the area.

Scout reports added to and mixed in with all the other crap in my daytrippin' thread

...links below to where relevant pics started:

Click
HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE..............

...and of course they ramble on for pages and pages so you can try to sort it out as best as you can.



Stay tuned.

...more details to be added to this post at a later date...maybe, maybe not.

I'm going to go with a slightly more laid back approach this year....both in regards to mileage and pace...maybe.

Tentative routes:

Thursday: Lunch @ Hawg-n-Dawg via Beauty Spot TO FROM

Friday: Lunch @ Sharpie's TO FROM

Saturday: Lunch @ Farmer's BBQ TO FROM

Mindless Wandering and Miscellaneous Scenery Ride
Brought to you by your friends at the Moran Nation

We will boldly go where we haven't gone before; mostly! The goal is to see cool shit, old stuff and take a few pictures.

The Friday Ride

This ride will begin promptly when everyone arrives at a place to be added at a later date. We will leave the campground and turn left unless it has rained a bunch. At any rate gas up on the way in. Mixed routes with back roads, gravel,etc. Small stream crossings may pop up if we find one. Big bike friendly, small bike friendly, Heritage Soft-tail classic; not so much. Two up probably not a good idea...

The Saturday Ride
This ride will probably involve a run to the Snake, aka 421, and a stop in Shady Valley Country Store for the fried pickles. Big bike friendly, small bike friendly, Heritage Soft-tail classic; not so much. Two up will probably be OK but we will be moving at higher speeds over some fast gravel. Allowances will be made based on attendance.

These are all female friendly rides meaning there will be women riding and men riding like women. We will find places for big girl sit-downs as required. This is also new rider friendly for the most part, just be prepared for gravel. There will be riders of all skill levels so don't wuss out early.

Lunch will happen, whenever.


We generally travel with a security escort, medical support and legal representation.

That's all I got right now.

I removed all of the ride rules; if you fuck up or break down you will be left for dead with only $3.00, a dress and a cyanide tablet!
