    SLAP was a blast (except for a little weather issue with wet camp gear that cut my time short)... :cry

    But it was great!

    So you think YOU are on an adventure? We saw this guy at the motel in Ozark this morning. Check out this guy from China. He started out from California 90 days ago and is riding this 36 inch unicycle, complete with hand operated disk brake, to Florida. That backpack probably weighs at least 50 lbs.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Had a blast! BUT We had a break in at the cabin yesterday while out riding. Nothing was taken except half a large pastry?? Video Showed 3 people and we need your help! Anyone that knows these 3 is asked to notify us or the local authority's! Please help bring us justice for the missing pastry! Breakfast wasn't the same this morning without it! :(

    *** one other note a neighbor said they thought they saw an elderly man riding off on a Blue Husaberg but who rides a Husaberg these days ??

    Ok, people- these rally planning threads get pruned by the mods, so please quit posting pics from the rally here. I've started a SLAP 2014 ride report thread in Day Trippin' and it can be found here ->

    Thanks to everyone at SLAP for the warm welcome. I truly appreciate it and wish I could have stayed longer. What a fantastic location for a rally!

    BTW Mr Dog, I had many compliments on my SLAP shirt at RDV.

    Please be consistent on this - prior to this rally, I started a separate thread for the Arkansas 500 after it and was told NOT to do that so thats why I started posting pics in this thread.

    I have nothing to do with how this ADV Rally subforum is moderated. The AR500 isn't a national ADV rally, so I have no idea how or where that belongs. :dunno

    Feel free to do a search for the SLAP 2013 planning thread and get back to me. :deal
    Last I checked, it no longer exists, therefore I'd hate for all your pics from this year to similarly vaporize.

    Sorry for any confusion. Below are the rules for the annual rally threads.

    I could be totally wrong on the interpretation but, Arkansas 500 is a regional not national rally and is kept in the regional forum and not removed by the mods. EDIT: so we've always provided a different link for the ride report / pics.

    Thanks for posting your pics! We just need them elsewhere for a "permanent" record.

    Slap pics from 2011, 2012, and 2013 are in day trippin', as suggested my a mod several years ago, IIRC.

    I didn't see earlier years in my search, so they might be elsewhere.
