Apple Valley Rally Sept. 20 - 23, 2018 Sorry for the short notice, y'all, it's been a weird year for me, but we're gonna do this anyway. This years' AVR will be staged back up in the Mt Hood NF near where we had it a few years ago, Thursday through Sunday. I'll be camping at the Billy Bob SnoPark on Wednesday evening, getting there likely just about dark-thirty. The Apple Valley Rally is traditionally a RIDER'S RALLY. You can come here to just drink all day if you really wanna, but you'll likely be drinking alone, because most of us will want to RIDE all day in the best central area for Dual-Sport riding anywhere around these parts. I'm looking forward to the famous creek crossings on the Upper Fifteenmile Road, and that lovely nasty grade that goes down to it. On the way there, I found a GREAT ridge trail made by quads that goes deep down into a creek and a gully connector to a logging operation made by 4x4s. For those looking for an opportunity to ride sections of the North Cascades Discovery Route, all these campspots are smack on the North CDR path. Campfires will likely still be forbidden, unless it rains a bunch between now and then, so if any of you have a portable propane campfire and/or heater, please bring it on up to share with us. This a no-cost classic ADVRider Rally in the woods, and there's room for all-a-yas in the three areas. All ADVRider Forum members are invited, even YOU!; Farm Rules apply here. Please do NOT share this event on Facebook, as this is a no-cost ADVRider Rally just for ADVRiders. I'll supply and make all the morning coffee for all riders at the Billy Bob SnoPark, the rest is up to each rider and all the other ADVers that will help share. All 4-wheel vehicles and RVs that are coming to this Rally MUST bring lots of extra water, ice & coolers, and whatever else you can bring with you to share with the tougher riders that wanna RIDE to this Rally. Google Maps link for all three spots MAIN RALLY BASE and 10am daily ride take-off point: Billy Bob SnoPark - The SnoPark is a large blacktop space for motorhomes, large trailers, and those that need to fit in bigger spaces This place has a big Snow Shelter and a vault toilet but little shade and early sunrises. Lots of space for lots of big rigs here. TWO Additional Rally campground locations are very near with easy overflow space for lots and LOTS of riders: Pebble Ford Campground $14/site(maybe?$?) This is a very cool small 5-6 site primitive CG with a vault toilet that will actually fit LOTS of ride-in tent campers, and also a few pickup and small RV spots for ADVers that get there early. Eightmile Campground - $21/site - no hookups This is a very nice spacious classic campground on beautiful Eightmile Creek just 1/8 mile away with lots of nice well-treed spaces for big rigs and RVs with several vault toilets in the CG. Set your dates, I'll post more info when I get time.
