    I'm heading over Friday morning from Edmond. I'll be taking the KTM 520 exc-r over on the back of my FJ Cruiser. The 520 is a WHOLE lot more fun than my 950 Adv. at SLAP. :clap

    Plus, I need all my creature comforts since we won't have the lodge this year... :lol3

    Just did the hillbilly and had a great time! Would love to do SLAP but I know there is no lodging at Byrds. I have a 43 ft 5th wheel toyhauler but currently am between trucks to pull it and being as how I have NO camping gear (just a sleeping bag) may consider sleeping in the back of my Blazer. Have done this before but was a bit younger then. :baldy

    I've been checking out the pics from the Arkansas 500. Wow....some great pics. I'm mad at myself for missing that ride. No way I'm missing it next year!

    We have a request for Wednesday so the next one will be Wed.
    Where would everyone like the next meet be at?
    I remember some people saying they liked the last place- Turek's Tavern
    In Choctaw. We can meet there or a new place.

    So... I've been thinking...

    June is the Flint Hills Stampede in S.E. Kansas... which is actually a great ride, believe or not. I have already put in my vacation time for it.

    But in the back of my mind i'm thinking it might be even cooler to knock off the eastern half of the Oklahoma Adventure Loop. I have already taken friday off of work, so my thought is to head north after work and end up at Lake McMurtry or someplace like that thursday night, then head east in the morning.

    I'm thinking of riding as much as can be ridden on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, then peel off and head home, where ever we are at.

    I'd like to camp most of the way, but if had to hotel, it wouldn't be the end of the world.

    Sunset for June 14th is 8:47 pm...(Thursday night after work...)

    Any adventurous souls out there?

    Except maybe not such a positive maybe. :D I'll firm up my plans a couple of days before?

    If I go and need be I can put together a mostly non-paved ride over, starting near Shawnee it is all pretty good gravel roads but the farther east you get the more interesting it becomes.

    Oh yeah, don't tell gmsnowball but this is my couch :deal

    Add "Really" before "old and slow" delete "KTM crazy fast guy" and I'm all the rest. I'm semi-retired so can make time to whatever fits.
    Just so long as I have some help getting my bike back on its feet when it takes a nap:rofl

    I ended up flagging between turn 2 and 3.
    Had a fun weekend standing out there all day for three days.

    My total cost to attend the inaugural Austin MotoGP?

    Gas to drive down and back and a couple of cups of coffee. Other than that having to stand 20 feet from the track with a flag at the ready, only waved the yellow flag in anger twice in three days, had that many red flags.

    Free camping for volunteers on track, free breakfast and lunch, they served good BBQ one evening, pizza another, my nephew from San Antonio bought my dinner at Cracker Barrel Friday.

    :clap:clap:clap:D

    Oh yeah, I drove home right after the races, terrible 100 mile or longer traffic jam from Temple to north of Waco. Pulled over and slept for an hour at that first rest area in Oklahoma.
    Got home, showered, fired up the DVR and watched the MotoGP and Seattle SX before going to bed at about 4 AM.

    Sounds like it would be fun. However, I'm going to be at the Washougal National MX that weekend. Don't tell GMSnowball Gary that I can't find near the couch time he does. :lol3:lol3:lol3
