    Rv site 64 booked, it's close to the primitive so I'm hoping that means close to the "gathering".

    I’m should be in. Just picked up a CRF250L.


    Couple questions. I read the first post but just confirm there will be somewhat of a grouping for the rides?? I’m not looking to show up to just explore on my own. Looking to ride with other little thumpers or like minded riders while learning forest roads.


    I’m not new to riding but new to the dual sport world. Currently ride street and MX, atvs, trails, tracks.


    While I have extensive paved, restaurant, gasoline stop knowledge (riding paved over last 10years here in Ozarks) of the region anything from 71 over to 341 and everything in between. The forest roads and any connecting trails or fire roads are new to me.


    Regarding gasoline, will it be necessary to carry spare or will there be enough possibilities to hit the paved options before running out 2gal tank/150miles between fill ups??


    Lastly, as a noob what would be the essentials to carry or have on board for the rides, as I’m not packing for a cross country trip. I’ll be trailering in from Texas.


    Btw, Mulberry Mountain Lodge is a great host venue. Stayed there before, recommend folks get one of the electric sites, comes in handy.

    Amazing. It was warm, dry and I had plenty of beer available from my living room.

    So your truly lit, you just keep your hooch in the closet so you can close the door and hide it when the preacher comes over like the rest of us, right? I just stumbled on this thread, I think I'm going to like this group. Now to find someone cool enough to ride up there with me from the Mississippi gulf coast

    I am interested in attending this. Attended HarvestFest at Mulberry Mountain way back when, great venue. Fairly new to dual sport riding, and group riding in general. Might try to drag some fellow Central AR buddies along with me.

    I am sure there will be groups willing to show you around. And 150 miles is plenty of range. There is gas in Oark and in Combs.

    Me too, Can't wait.

    Between the two of us, we've been trying to break that Suzuki for nearly 28,000 miles. It's been drowned, ridden through deep water, ridden off a small cliff, and dropped at least once. All it's ever needed was oil changes, valve adjustments, and lots of back tires.
