Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous #6, May 2-5 2019

Okay boys & girls HMR #6 is on! I guess we've done something to make you wanna keep coming back as seen from the pressure I received in #5 thread. Maybe y'all just really like camping in my yard/pasture.

Due to a s/e event already planned, Easter & Mothers Day it's just a little later in the year than normal. Could be a good thing, we'll see.

This will once again be a 4 day event. Registration will again include 6 meals, 3 dinners & 3 breakfast along with water, soft drinks, morning coffee. All will be pretty much the same as in the past. A place to camp, shower & those lovely plastic outhouses will also be included.  Might get creative & make a few upgrades/changes but don't count on it.

Keep an eye out for more details & info to come.

So mark your calender's & plan to be here. We're doing it because you wanted it!  :)

They don't get much more frugal than this event.

And wifey may even attend, though she will not ride much. She's not a fan of curvy roads, especially if taken at a faster than cruiser speed.  :motonoises: :motonoises:

Cliff,
That's great news. I hope to be there, but can't commit to anything until late Feb. Life is throwing me a sucker punch again, so I back to limiting my planning to three to four month segments. It looks like it could be an interesting, but not fun, year.

It's on the calendar. If my health permits, I'll be there.

Thanks Cliff. Things are fine now, but it's wait and see. The Lab work and CT scan four weeks ago showed significant growth in the last six months. Not a good trend. My best hope is for things to stabilize, but as the doctor said, this is the natural progression of the disease. Not what I wanted to hear. I knew this stuff would be back, but I hoping it wouldn't be this soon. At least I had a great summer and got to ride with some good friends.

I'll know more in mid Feb. Even if I have to start chemo again, I might be able to make it to HMR #6. It will depend on the timing of the treatments. This stuff is treatable, but it does zap a person pretty badly. I do think some spirited riding in Arkansas and fellowship with my COG friends could be the best, and lowest cost treatment I could have.

I plan on being at HMR #6. It's a damn good goal to have. I will win this round of the fight.

Let's stay on topic people! .... good people, good roads, good BBQ(bringing Traeger), good beer(bring your own if you don't like Ted's), big fires, and excellent hosts.

Who else is going to join us?

Tom,
You are absolutely right, the HMR rally is very good one. Cliff and Jimmie really work hard to put this thing on, but you are going to be surprised how the rest of their family also help to make this thing happen. No doubt a team effort.

But there is another great rally later that same month,  the Bun Cooler, I really want to make it out there this year.  Just thought I would throw that "plug" out there for you.

Kim brought some good Yankee BBQ to the ride last weekend. I just got a taste, but hoping he'll bring some more?
Tom, I had to look up Traeger. In Texas we just call them BBQ Pits or Smokers.
You sed; good beer (bring your own if you don't like Ted's)..
                I liked that part, bekuz I prefer to keep most of mine for me.. <evil grin>
                        But I'll share with ya'll COGgers.

I agree, Cliff and family work together to put on a great gatherin'...
As they agreed to do it again, we need to help all we can...
I've been experimenting with Smoking some hams lately using mesquite.
    I can smoke a couple of them to contribute to the breakfasts?

Getting back to; Who else is going to join us?
I'd like to see 50 names on this discussion before the Rally.
    Contact your COG Buddies and have them post..

Ride safe, Ted

But there is another great rally later that same month,  the Bun Cooler, I really want to make it out there this year.  Just thought I would throw that "plug" out there for you.

Off track again, but that's okay. I had hoped to make the Bun Cooler last year. My Alaska trip interfered though. If all works out, maybe I could meet you up north somewhere ride over together Kim.  :motonoises:

  Only if I can be sure NOT to be caught in a TORNADO.    I was once less than 5 miles away from where a tornado touched down while on my bike and it was really scary.          Scariest part was I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS HAPPENING. Ya, there was a lot of heavy rain and wind but I couldn't see any funnel cloud beyond the trees and forest.      I could have driven right into the dam thing.    Going to have to wait and watch  the weather.      ;)

What Don said! You're trailering Alan, so a little weather don't matter.



Just realized if you come Don, that will be 5 out the 6 COG regions represented.  :great:  For a small regional rally, I call that pretty damn good!  :)

Hope to see you back here Don.

We had more than our share of Tornado warnings at the previous Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous.
So, I talked to the *Boss. There's not going to be any tornado problems at the next Rally..
(The Boss) Mrs. "Just Cliff" said "she" won't allow any...  :great:
Problem solved.

Ride Safe, Ted

:beerchug:  I may do graceland again also
 
I missed your 2018 rally, which was a shame since I live so close. I have already told the wife that this is a must-do, and I will be there. We have some great riding roads in Arkansas, and even though I have ridden most of them at least once, they are too much fun not to ride again and again. A week ago I rode the Pig Trail from Eureka Springs to I-40 and highway 7 back to Harrison. Looking forward to seeing you and Jimmie again.

Hopefully the 75 mile ride down is not to taxing!  :) Look forward to having you.

Looking forward to HMR in a special way this year.  I've been watching for it on the calendar so i can get signed up.  No joy yet.  Any thoughts on when it will be listed?  Cliff i can't Express how much I've enjoyed the HMR in the past.  Thank you and family.  If there is anything i can do to help it would be my pleasure.
