Go team Vapor great ride Saturday.
Looks like we are the last FF at Byrds. I helped Cpt. America load the 990 this morning.
Tornados missed us but all the rain overwhelmed the truck tent and the seams weeped.
Drying gear and washing clothes in Ozark.
Byrds manager took us into thier home last night while the tornado watch was in effect then told us about the life jackets inthe rafters of the shower if we got hit by flash flooding:eek1
SLAP sounds like a ride not to be missed....
...and I missed it.
Status check on my buddy, DRZCharlie? Did he make it out alive?
All the best,
What a great event! Thanks to the organizers, volunteers and camp staff for pulling it off. I had great time.
Thanks to the guy on the WR450 that found my camera in Frog Bayou!
Had a great time. Thanks a bunch to all the organizers. You did an outstanding job.
Slide it forwardf a week or back a week and many more of us could make it next year.(Same week as Rick's RDV.)
Byrd's is an awesdome place! We had a GS Giant event there last summer. The trials course that you ran in the back was run by a bunch of 1150 and 1200 GS's last summer!
Problem with that is the current weekend is in-between Mother's Day and Memorial Day. It's also a common weekend for HS graduations, but we figured that would be the least of the conflicts.
We haven't officially settled on a date yet AFAIK. Likely to be the same weekend.
Maybe next year, SLAP will triple in size again and we'll push Rick's RDV to a different weekend.
Rally War begins now.
You guys put on an awesome event. KUDOS
For DRZ Charlie... here's another shot of the T-shirt I had on at the event...
Here's the one I forgot to bring with me...
Credit for the shirts go to the one of the senior citizens that I ride with.
Got back from Slap on Tuesday. Made a week long trip out of it, Slap, Hot Springs, Talimena Trail, back to Clarksville trying to out run the thunderstorms and tornado's and home to IL. Had a great trip, 1500 miles. Thanks to all for the well planned event. Link to pics http://s129.photobucket.com/user/beckerjs/library/slap 2013
Couple of favorites
White rock fog
We felt really bad coming up on this, we knew who it was and with no one around it had to be bad. Hope the PA guys don't mind
The slide coming into the creek bottom. Hope he's doing fine.
And Crash minus the windshield
Thanks again, see ya next year.
Thanks to all who led me around and put up with my smoking 2 stroke. At least it is quiet and ugly.
Someone needs to teach Rufus how to ride on 2 wheels, just in case he ever needs to.
I was more than happy to share my shine and beer with all who partook. I ended up drinking some of someone elses shine, which was the same brand and flavor as mine when mine ran out. What are the odds of that?
Best catfish and pulled possum pork I've had since my granny quit cooking roadkill.
I met a Polish guy who should be doing stand up comedy. I met a New Zealander riding half way around the world on a DR 650 with the biggest gas tank I've seen even on a deuce and a half truck. I met at least 2 guys who carry more weight in tools than I do. Pretty impressive that. I met Toyman, who I think could actually properly use the 50lbs of tools I carry. I met a guy who goes through 4 back tires to one front from doing wheelies named Rufus. Already mentioned Rufus, but he deserves a second mention.
I broke one spoke, one mirror, one headlight bulb, and my rear wheel bearings went out but I made it back to the campground without walking.
I thought I'd be on the only 2 stroke, and surely the only GasGas 2 stroke, but I was mistaken. Darrel was on a cool new GG 2 stroke that looked as light as a bicycle. Or at least a trials bike.
I got to eat at the Oark store, and at Byrds great possum roadkill pulled meat, and some carp that tasted almost like really great catfish. If you can cook possum and carp that good, you deserve a few awards for culinary excellence.
First time I ever drank premium beer out of a keg! My keg drinkin has always been Bud, Coors, or Miller. Kinda weird for a redneck Arkie, from the hills, but I sure ain't complaining!
Is it really a whole year before ya'll do SLAP again? Why not a Fall and a Spring SLAP? I'll bring 4 quarts of shine and a 30 pack of whatever's on sale if you do.
This was my second SLAP. WOW, what a great time, great ride, outstanding people, wonderful food (and plenty of it), gorgeous facility, cold beer, beautiful weather, and best of all...all the new friends we (THE RAT PACK from Texas) made. Any time an event comes off this flawless it means a tremendous amount of work and planning went into making it so. My hat is off to all of those who make the SLAP such a blast for the rest of us. I WILL be back next year, and I am bringing some more from Texas! We invited all we met to come to Texas and ride, but after thinking about it we told them....never mind we have nothing that compares to the riding in Arkansas. WOW. Thanks for the trophy, I hope to bring it back next year so you can pass it on to the "STUCK THE WORST" rider (who knows I might win it again...make it 3 years in a row)!
Thank you gentlemen...a superb event...we hated to leave.
See you next year!
Here are some pics of the 2013 SLAP and the team Vapor ride on Saturday.
