    Hey ScottyXR - not sure I followed the rules to sign up but I paid the registration/donation last week but don't see my name on the list yet. Is there something else I need to do?
    Thanks for all your efforts on this!

    Thanks for the info - I had called all those as well. We ended up finding some VRBO/AirBnB close by.

    Sorry folks, I've been out of the state, in Oklahoma rescuing 6 tigers. Page one, post two is now updated. Check the list and make sure I have your name. If someone other than you paid your PayPal donation, make sure you PM me the correct name.

    I'm looking to share a room with someone as I don't camp.

    Anyone?

    Up-date-There are nice looking cabins (cheap) around Ponca/Buffalo Outdoor for Saturday, but the closest rooms available to Byrds is in Ozark AR, about 40 minutes away. You can check them out @VRBO Ponca AR

    Currently, we have 60 riders signed up. Only 10 spaces available. If you know someone "on the fence" let them know so they can go!

    Great advmgm! I'm busy ordering upgrades for the new 450L. I have ordered everything I need except the $350 IMS tank and the $999 Recluse. These last two, much-needed upgrades may have to wait until fall for the piggy bank to fill up. Oh well, I will have to carry MSR bottles until then.

    Y'all know how it is, there is always something else to get for the ride. Believe me, I'll be looking for stuff to sell in the flea market.

    Testing out the bike. The light snow reminded me of the 2018 Arkansas 500!
