    This is going to be an excellent ride. Truck support all 4 days, don't have to haul your camping gear as that will be transported, a new campsite every night, lots of dirt and rural countryside (scenic middle TN!), ride your own ride, suitable for just about any adv/dual sport from ct90 to 1200 gsa, and getting to hang with fellow riders. What more could you want!? :) Hope to see you on the trail!

    Today is Sept 18th ... We have a great group of people going! I'm looking forward to meeting all of you out there on Oct 1-4 ... This is going to be FUN! Lets Take a Ride!

    Some are coming just for the two weekend days and others are going to simply show up based on their RSVP's.
    Eventbrite has locked all funds on events in the United States due to covid (Socialist insert ______) ... For anyone in this group at this late date, I ask that you simply bring cash. All four of the campgrounds we are staying in are private / cash only.

    Lets Ride!

    Hats off for setting up this ride! Can't make it though, doing a big 4 day street ride to SW VA with 4 buddies

    They've been reluctant to take the DS plunge :uhoh

    From Wednesday the 30th till Monday the 5th face-to-face is the best way to ask me a question.

    I will not be checking Face Book or social media as I will not have wifi for 99% of the time.
    However, I will be monitoring my phone for texts and incoming calls (make sure your family/spouse has my number as an alternative way to reach you). NOTE: Cell towers will be scarce, at camp often there is NO signal at all.

    I will be in the truck during the day hugging civilization for incoming calls.

    See you guys out there!

    This is going to be FUN!

    Lets Take a Ride!

    IT BEGINS, I'LL BE THERE THIS AFTERNOON ... SEE YOU GUYS THERE / TONIGHT OR IN THE MORNING! ... You guys are paid up beginning tonight through Sunday. I'll see you tonight or in the morning for kickstands up. (I'll be needing some time with each person to sign waivers) Fall Hollow Campgrounds are abuzz (near full) with seasonal campers. Tonight (Wednesday) we will be setting up tents near the pavilion. The next three campgrounds are more open to tent placement. Matter of fact, two have closed giving us the whole place to ourselves.
