This is Version 12 and David’s never cancelled yet due to inclement weather!!! Sick man likes to add to the challenge! He prolly been seen doing a rain dance to summons the gods for this mess!

    My first Smokin Hole Rally it rained all night and my tent had about 3 inches of water in it by morning. Mind you i rode out to the rally on my DR650 and rode home with all my wet camping gear strapped to the back. YEAH, it's a rain or shine event!!! LOL

    Sorry for your loss Shane.
    John you better have a good excuse, because when the rain just passes by you'll be missing out on a great ride!

    I’m pretty sure there was a wait list at one time!

    Sorry for those that can’t make it as you will be missing out on an excellent Adventure! As mslow stated, I hope you don’t bail just due to the weather as there’s lots of good riding to be had even when wet!

    I was iffy with the weather but camping in the pavilion vs a tent, bring on the rain and mud! This is going to be an epic first real adventure with the bike.

    If you plan on group-sleeping in the pavilion, bring ear plugs as many of us snore.....LOUDLY! And big, open spaces usually reverberate and echo.

    I'm bringing my tent but if the space looks good, I'll join the den of snoring bears.

    You could probably set up your tent inside the pavilion to be honest.
