    Next Up: the 2014 LARR.

    2nd weekend in September. (Sept 12-14).

    Vinita, Oklahoma. (Look carefully at Post 2 for a link to the google map.)

    Questions? PM me, Nata Harli, or Throttlemeister.

    Before this forum existed, advriders not in the USA or Europe had a forum called Outer Darkness.

    When this forum was young, Nata Harli rode home from Panama. Barb and I rode south from Texas. We were all going to meet up halfway but we missed. We promised to meet up for a beer. Next think everyone who mattered said they were thirsty. So we met in Colorado.

    Then in Colorado again.

    Then in Minnesota.

    Then in New Mexico.

    Then twice in Wisconsin.

    And now in Oklahoma.

    I'll come back and edit this post irregularly.

    Who: North America Based Latin America Riders
    What: Rallye to tell lies, drink too much, and generally feel normal for a few days.
    Where: TBD. Word is that it'll be in Oklahoma or Mexico.
    When: TBD. Late Summer until mid-Fall.
    Why: Because we love disaster

    Nata Harli, Throttlemeister, and any other FF's that have an opinion-

    if in Oklahoma, I might be able to fly in for a weekend. Sadly, I'm chained to the Bay Area (and China) most of the time. :deal

    Are you volunteering to uncoordinated this disaster? I'd do Copper Canyon. When?

    I would be happy to uncoordinate for a CC meet if I had some idea/faith of my availability, but nada right now. That's my excuse, anyway.
    October is usually great weather for a CC adventure.

    CC can be a three day wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am affair, or easily extended to several weeks long. All riders smile in CC.

    I keep forgetting that you haven't yet been to a LARR disaster. Uncoordinating is remarkably easy. You just have to pick a spot and then keep a half-assed list of who might come. Once we're there, we're on our own except for at night when we steal each others' beer. Your other job might be to hold somebody's beer while they do something epic or amazing.

    A nice site in Oklahoma in early September is ready especially if it allows some old and new friends to all meet up:freaky

    There's a decent campground with a touch of off road riding available at Grand Lake.
    The campground owner is pretty cool, assuming he's still kicking.
    The town is very friendly to weird out of town riders and off roaders.
    Early Sep would probably still be blazing hot. Later would be much better.

    You are an old rockcrawler if I remember right:ear Are you thinking of Disney and Tijuana Oklahoma. Earlier September so we can have some good time cooling off in the lakes and rivers:deal

    I've got a spot on Grand River near Strang that we could all base out of that should work well enough.

    We will need a beer holder (human type) if there is fire dancing this year.

    I hired a graphic designer down in Mexico to make up some images based on quotes that I gathered at ALARR III (and elsewhere). I'll post them as they become available. I thought you fellas would appreciate them. :wink:

    You can bitch all you want but you better look me in the eye and buy at least your share of the beer, Bitch.

    PS: we've been disorganizing a clusterfuck since an awful long time ago. Literally hundreds of riders have met up
