    Slow thread, not much interest on this forum. Getting closer, can't wait for a little cooler weather. Got a new tent looking forward to trying out.

    If any of y'all are planning to head north of Mena, towards, Eureka Springs, Fayetteville, Jasper, etc... Be prepared to deal with volumes of motorcycle traffic.

    One of the top 5 US motorcycle rallies will be underway about 150 miles north of Mena.

    Bikes, Blues and BBQ Billed as the “Largest U.S. Charity Rally”, BBB, as it has been dubbed, entices approximately 400,000 motorcycle enthusiasts to Fayetteville, Arkansas during the last weekend of September.

    Also, here is a gpx track and some ride reports from a dual sport group who camped and rode the Mena area, last July.

    track is on top right of the spreadsheet(column H)
