    Crawford's Campground

    [​IMG]

    Registration starts 1/5/2020
    Please do not call the resort for reservations
    (we have the whole place booked for us)

    The NC governor has asked not to have gatherings over 100 (fair request imo), so we are limiting the registrations for now to 100.

    We gonna make is small but mighty!


    What's the RDV?

    A weird mix of ADV inmates (max 200), some of the best roads in WNC (dirt, gravel, twisties, TAT), a huge campground just for the RDV, great food, free craft beer (or root beer), and a lot of the bullshitting on the fire-pit.
    What can go wrong? :lol3

    What's included?
    • free tent camping or trailer/van camping (no hook-ups)
    • hot showers
    • Dinner on Thursday
    • Breakfast and Dinner on Friday
    • Breakfast and Dinner on Saturday
    • Breakfast on Sunday
    • 'bout 18 kegs of beer, root-beer, coffee, lemonade
    • mug, stickers, door prizes
    • good people and a weird guy
    Cost:

    $99 + $15 for late registrations after April 21stth. Sorry no one-day-passes (too hard to control) and no refunds. If you are not able to come, you are more than welcome to sell your spot.

    sorry, we can not offer refunds for registration, however you are more than welcome to sell your spot to somebody else - just post it up in this thread

    Showers: The campground has 8 hot showers (or ask your buddy in the fancy RV with full hook ups)

    Plates and cutlery: Paper plates and plastic cutlery are provided. Bring your own if you want to eat in style (and hate waste)

    Stuff: We have basic tools, compressor, battery charger, tow straps, a pickup truck and ramps etc., plus a basic first aid kit, including braces, splints, bandages, and painkillers.

    Cell-phone service: None, but you may get a text in and out on Verizon
    History:
    The Eastern Rendezvous is the one of the oldest annual ADV rallies, It started in 2002 as a small traveling gathering, and Rick aka Party Boss turned it into an annual event known as the Eastern Rendezvous. Sadly we lost Rick in 2012. Nobody will ever be able to be such a great and inviting host like he was, but we will keep his rally alive in honor of what he started.
    One for the Boss :beer

    @Mofo Flake : post #65

    I'm willing to do a 'quick' paced gravel tour on one of the weekdays (similar to last two years), but hopefully more miles. If anyone wants to tag along for that.

    Past that, I'm going to try and hit some single track if that damn Italian bitch plays along... And do some exploring....

    @Deckyon : more info at post #67

    Not official rides, and subject to change. Leaving between 8 and 9 AM. These are rides I will be doing while down there. Most, if not all, will be pavement only. It will be a ride at your own pace, no meal stops scheduled, leaving it open to whatever comes up.

    This first one is my Tail of the Dragon and Cherohala Skyway loop.
    https://trips.furkot.com/ts/7pW56o - 216 Miles, 6 Hours

    This next one is a loop of area I have not been in since we have come to Crawfords. There may be some gravel on this one towards the end.
    https://trips.furkot.com/ts/s1cSbZ - 170 Miles, 6 hours (leads me to think there is some gravel)
