    This is your personalized, formal invitation to a weekend of ADVriding fun in Northeast Alabama, for which I can think of no clever name. This will be the weekend of September 28-30.

    I'll be posting gps coordinates and directions at a later date, but time is of the essence (because I've dragged ass all summer and put this off 'til now) and I'd like to give as much warning as possible. We'll be in Langston, Alabama, just south of Scottsboro, on the east side of the Tennessee River.

    Edit: GPS geeks can find the place at: N34<SUP>o</SUP>31.841' W086<SUP>o</SUP>05.761'. I'll PM directions to everyone at a later date.

    Here:

    The lake is back there, I promise. :D

    [​IMG]

    See? :deal There's a dock with a boathouse there now, and the family boat for anyone who thinks they're capable of skiing (pics now posted - #62). Ask cRAsH about the weight limit. :augie

    There's a full-blown kitchen as well, and we'll have coolers full of your favorite . . . . . . . . . . PBR. :D :freaky

    [​IMG]

    I intend to provide, as mentioned, a copious supply of PBR . . . okay, I'll get some other cheapo domestics, too. :evil I've given notice to the local sandwich/burger joint that we'll be arriving en masse for lunch on Saturday (figure on spending $5 or so), and I'll be providing burgers, brats and such for the entire crowd on Saturday night. I'll also be actively recruiting help preparing a breakfast on Sunday morning. :dg

    [​IMG]

    There's room indoors for 20 people or so, as long as you don't mind sleeping on the floor, and listening to a bunch of old fat guys snore. There's room for dozens upon dozens of tents in the grass between the house and the lake, and you can even sleep on the dock if you'd like.

    There are some really great roads in the area. I'm sure we've got inmates much more familiar with 'em than I am, but I'll prepare a good loop route or two, if nobody else chimes in. I know GSBS and a few others are intimately familiar with the area, and I've only just started to explore, so I'll cross my fingers and hope they can pitch in here. :ear


    This isn't intended to be an enormous event, but I'm also not gonna put a limit on the number of attendees. I would, however, like some kinda notice if you intend to be there, so I know how much PBR to pick up. :lol3




    We'll ride. We'll swim. We'll ride. We'll ski. We'll ride. We'll eat. We'll ride. We'll drink. We won't ride anymore that day. :evil We'll get up and ride. :thumb



    I know it's short notice, but let's see a little turnout here. :freaky

    Sounds good to me dude. Nice place. Never ridden in AL. Guess that will have to change, eh? Barring any craziness between now and then, count me in. :thumb You need help with anything you know where to find me.

    I dub thee NCN07

    Sounds like fun. The North and Eastern parts of AL were my old haunts. Good times. Should be a cool event.

    Damnit, man!
    Why don't you clear these things with me first?
    Then you would know that I'm gonna be in Hawaii during this little shindig.
    I insist that you change the date.
    :deal



    :lol3


    Seriously though . . . sure would have liked to make this one. :cry But . . . I won't complain while I'm enjoying Hawaii.

    Dammit son...been keeping my eye out for a get together I could make...would love to meet some of the inmates in person, but am flat covered up that weekend. Will be cooking around the clock from Thursday to Sunday with a competition BBQ team.

    BBQ on the River in Paducah, KY...any riders headed down for this & traveling through Paducah...stop by for some good BBQ & find the Buzzard Brothers booth. Give John the ADV riders salute & get a free BBQ sammich:deal

    Hate to miss this one...I'm sure you'll have a blast.

    Count me in, this will tie-in perfect with my "Deals Gap area" ride the preceding week. :clap You might want to wait for a name until the event transpires.

    Is this for known friends only or can a stranger to the group show up ?
    I live down the street in Madison just outside Huntsville. I wanna come but you don't say how to get there !

    Also...is this to be ADV rides on trails or asphalt?
