    What's is the RDV?

    Just imagine a bunch of 175+ ADV folks in the Mountains of Eastern TN for a long weekend:
    Spend the day riding some of the best roads in the east: dirt, gravel, twisties; and spend the rest of your time at a private resort (plenty of indoor space in case of rain), eating great food, enjoying a few pints of craft beer (or root beer), show off you big wheel skills, and join the bullshitting on the fire-pit. What can go wrong? :lol3

    What's included?

    • free camping, hot showers, huge indoor area
    • Dinner on Thursday
    • Breakfast and Dinner on Friday
    • Breakfast and Dinner on Saturday
    • Breakfast on Sunday
    • 'bout 18 kegs of beer, root-beer, coffee, lemonade
    • t-shirt (only for registrations before April 15)
    • mug, stickers, tons of door prizes
    • Big-Wheels...
    Cost:
    $99 + $15 for late registrations after April 15th. Sorry no one-day-passes (too hard to control) and no refunds. If you are not able to come, you are more than welcome to sell your spot. Sign up starts December 1st at 8pm. First come first serve.

    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 :beer

    Late Train

    Same as it ever was.....you'll see me wandering around camp wondering why there's no coffee left and trying to brew another pot or three then I'll be wandering around camp some more getting all jittery and finally decide that I need a shower. After that happens watch for me to start gearing up and rolling my bike down to the camp store at the front entrance, that usually happens around 10:30ish. It won't be long after that any that's brave enough to follow me out on a mix of twisty dirt and little paved back roads will roll on down the road. After a bit of fresh air I'll start to get hungry and we'll stop for lunch then try and find our way back to camp in time to join in for the final laps of the Kermit chair ride before dinner at Black Bear. Standard rules apply, if you forgot what those are I sure hope you have a GPS and we'll see you later! :lol3

    Stone Mountain trails.

    I'll choose the day after seeing what the other dirt ride leaders plan.

    I'll try to make it an easy route this year. Somehow I always seem to loose riders along the way. Sorry... :muutt

    I found some new stuff that's doable on a big bike. We may need to bring at least one Husqvarna with us to make it through.

    Should we bring our own air cast or will one be supplied?
