    STOP 22 Rally

    Location: Mortimer, NC
    Dates: September 13th-15th
    Total Cost: $50.00/rider
    Camping is at Betsey’s Ole’ Country Store and Cabin Rental
    Rider Cap: 50
    Cue Sheets of different routes in area.
    Not far from Brown Mountain ORV Park if single track is your hearts desire.
    Organizers: Angie-medicgirl88, Chelsea-best308

    This area is full of some of the best trails and forest service roads that Western North Carolina has to offer. Because of the remote location BYOE (bring your own everything).
    This event is dual sport, enduro, and adventure bike friendly. Bikes should be capable of handling unimproved forest service roads, 2 track and single track. All motorcycles must be street legal.

    Our goal at is to raise awareness of the suicide epidemic that is plaguing EMS, fire, police, first responders, and veterans in this country. This is a very personal cause for both of us as I lost my little brother (a decorated veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan,) and Angie lost one of her best friends (an amazing paramedic with one of the kindest hearts.) We want to provide a riding community, bringing everyone on board. We want to, build lasting friendships, and connect those adventure riders in these fields who suffer from PTSD to a community that shares their passion for riding and adventure. We want to have fun, but we also will supply information for helping support your friend, loved one, or acquaintance who may be experiencing the effects of this illness.

    10% of all proceeds will be donated to 22zero (22zero.org) to help with treatment veterans and first responders suffering from PTSD.

    COME RIDE WITH US!

    Tickets on sale @ operationadv.org
    $50.00 per participant which includes camping for 2 nights.

    Ok. Sorry it took me so long to respond about the RV's, I've been wofking 100+ hours a week and it slipped my mind. There owner said he will probably only have one RV hook up with power available for those dates but most of them are seasonal campers, but that we can park trailers and RV's on the field. Also, he has a place you can get water, but no sewage.
    I look forward to seeing everyone there!

    This looks like it could be a cool event and being military and a veteran I respect the cause...

    Any chance to show up the morning of and pay the entrance cost?

    My schedule is not as predictable as I would like

    That should be fine, there's no cell service in this location so just bring cash. Let us know a couple of days before hand and we'll let you know if there is still a spot?

    Wish I could be there. Great cause. Wonderful place to ride....have been going to Wilson creek for hiking and fishing for about 20 years. Have taken the drz on most of the forest rds and had a blast. On weekends watch traffic and blind corners but during the week you can fly.
