    The Ozarks....SW MO, NW AR-great place to play!
    Good to see you guys at the dam on Saturday. I know my eyes are getting bad, and I'm old enough for senior moments, but I have to apologize as i didn't recognize you from when we met at El Taco Loco back in March. It was only after reading the posts that I put 2 and 2 together. Did you have a beard back then?

    Glad you enjoyed the new bike. Your comment about gps reminded me that it wasn't that long ago I was using 3 x 3 stickies in the top of my tank bag for routing. Even now though, I only use an old Windows phone with a gpx app, and Furkot to plan routes. Admittedly, I get a little ancy running down a dirt road by myself if I'm not sure there's another way out. Not so much worried about banjos as I am about dogs and guns protecting their......wares, yeah that's it, wares lol.

    Big thanks to all that helped put this together and make it so much fun. It was once again my wife's choice of destination for her birthday weekend!

    Looking forward to next year. Is the website up yet??:rofl

    IMG_20180519_073847.jpg I had a blast, thanks all who helped make this a great event. I think next year I'll try to convince my wife to come along as well.
    I'm pretty sure she'll love it out there (and so will our dogs).
    By then I hope to have a trailer so I can travel with a bit more comfort (AC) to Byrd's and back :-)

    Geardriven cam and I are back as well. We had a great ride back, other than a bit of rain. If any of you are up this way, let me know. We will be sure to show you some northern hospitality.

    How can you not love the WR250R when it brings you all the way down to Arkansas from Canada - and BACK! - and only asks for a sip of high test every now and then. Yes Carter - it CAN do everything!

    Thanks to everyone including the organizers for putting on such a satisfying event. I've always heard stories about the remarkable southern hospitality. Now I know from experience that it isn't a myth. Thanks Arkansas for some incredibly fun and twisty roads. And thank you hot and humid weather for forcing me to fling myself off the rope-swing into the Mulberry river to cool down. I'm reflecting on lots of fond memories as I make my way back into my igloo......

    I'm pretty sure it's May 18-20. It's always between Mother's Day and Memorial Day weekend.
