Kurt,
Thanks. I'm doing great so far. I have two more weeks of dosage increases of the magic pill before I'm at the full level. I feel fine and have minimal side effects. I've been skiing a few times and all is good. The other medication I'm on is the infusion. Had a problem during the first one, but got through it. It does make me very tired for the first week. That's the one scheduled for the Monday before HMR.

I like your idea about driving down. I may have to contact Ted for trailering advice. Never thought I'd say that, but things change. There's also a better chance my wife will come with if we bring the truck, with the bike, of course. She doesn't like driving the truck and has never pulled a trailer. I have time to think about other options, too.

Like I said, it's on my calendar. I had a great time last year and want to be back again. Cliff and Jimmie put on a great event. Plus it's fun hanging with everyone from the SE and SC regions. Ya'all  make us Yankees feel welcome, provided we head North after the event.

Hope to see you in April, if not sooner.

Trailering advise; Do it!!
Hope to see you there "Jim/Cookie"...

PS: On the Yankee thing.
          We'll talk to anyone.. {if they bring beer}  :rotflmao:

Ride safe, Ted

PS: Registered!!

It'll be my first time camping :great: at the event does that count as a first timer? :D

1st time campers are good to. I furnished Steve camping gear his 1st time because he'd never camped. He showed up the next year with his own gear & camped like a pro!  :great:

It appears to be working, I am now signed up! 

Look forward to having you Mike, you have talked about it several years. Now just don't set your expectations to high!  :??:

Lets see some more newcomers.  :motonoises:

Nice job Mike, HMR newcomer or COG newcomer?  :beerchug:


Should someone want to try camping I can set you up with gear.

Both, new to HMR and to COG.  A old friend who upgraded his ST-1100 to a C-14, and I convinced him to come along!

Hey trucker,
Enclosed trailers, motorhomes, and camping trailer are still technically camping. Just sayin.

Cliff and Jimmie.....thanks for once again providing your generosity and hospitality to put this together. 

For those who have not attended this: if you can.....you should.  It is a ton of fun, the riding is incredible, and the people are super!

Hoping to join again this year but the weather is the main constraint for those of us from 'up-nort'.  A nice early spring would be very welcome....

Oooh! A virgin.

The best way to set up camp is to have several adult beverages and wait until dark to set up. Always happy to lend advice.  ;) :rotflmao: :beerchug:

I’ll bring the blindfold. Lol! I’m not concerned about camping I’m concerned about over packing. Last time I went camping the truck was full. This will be interesting. 😎

No reason for over packing, everything you'll need will be here. Tent, bag, air mattress & a few clothes is all that's needed for this event.  :beerchug:

Just six weeks away, time to start getting registered. There are quite a few that are having trouble getting registered. Don't know what it is with this site, but I always  have a problem when registering for events also.

There is a new RV park in town just 6 miles away that will be open soon. In case anyone in a RV that wants/needs full hook ups. I can get info if needed.

Good to know if someone needs the hookups. My solar gets me by just fine, if I choose to bring the Roadtrek, which is looking more likely.

Okay, as everyone knows there is a lot going on in the world right now. As of right now there are no plans to cancel this event. However I would like everyone to hold up on registering til after the 1st of April. We can see how things are going at this time, who knows what will be going on then.

No need to cause Nancy any more headaches with refunds when registering is not urgent.

Thanks!  :)

I will be riding in north central Arkansas either way. It's too late to cancel my vacation days. Hopefully this mess will be winding down by then.

Texas stopped all gatherings of more than 10 people yesterday. I suspect Ark./other states will follow.
We'll just have to ride it out and see what happens.
  If Jim's going riding in Ark, I may be there with him..

NOTE: If there is a cancellation, I'd prefer that my Registration $$ be sent to Cliff to cover his {already} out of pocket expenses.
            Putting on an event ain't cheap and lots of up front $$ are used...

Ride safe, Ted

Should we have to cancel, all refunds will go to respective owners. You're alright though Ted, no matter what others say about you.  :beerchug:

At the rate things are going, we may not even be able to buy the amount of food it takes for 6 meals & 40 + people.

The good news:  With all KS K-12 schools closed for the school year and all activities canceled, my weekend has freed up.

The bad news:  Everything else that's going on  ;)

Hope to see you all down there.  We'll wait & see, like everyone else...

Thanks Tom!  :)

My wife is not to happy about the possibility of having to cancel this event. She did suggest that if we do have to cancel, maybe have a fall ride here. After all there is always a Arkansas fall ride & there are no plans as of yet. It's normally a hotel thing & located somewhere else, but?

Something to think about!  :)

Maybe after the Spyder?

RWTW, Spyder, HMR and then BVF?

4 in a row would be nice Kurt, but with only 2 -3 days between each event I wouldn't have preparation time. I would guess a couple weeks after BVF.

Hopefully everything just stays on track, but it's not looking to good.  :'(

BVF?

I was planning a 5-6 week "mini" trip out west in the fall. The new date could work well. I would definitely be in the Roadtrek if after the BVF(whatever that is, sorry).

WIth everything thhat has been happening I want this ride to happen. I think alot of us could really use the break from all the negtive crap. I have my fingers crossed.  :motonoises: :beerchug:

Well, the President just extended the social distancing to April 30th. I’m sure all the states will follow.

I just read this also, things are just looking pretty slim at this point.

We really want this to happen also, but it's just not looking good. Schools are most likely for the year, most everything is closed, except grocery stores & some big box stores. Can't have gatherings of more than 10 people. Probably wouldn't be caught here, but it would really suck to buy all this food have people set up camp & then a deputy shows up to send everyone own there way.

This has really been a struggle for me, it's a much harder decision than one would think.  :mad:

Worst case we'll do something in the fall!  :)

We will make a final decision in the next 10 days or so, don't hold your breath though.  :-\

I would not want to be in your shoes Tom, you're in a much tougher spot than I.

Well I've really been hoping to wake up one day & this all be gone. That's just not gonna happen. There's no use in holding out hope any longer. We have made the decision to cancel this event.

Not a easy decision, but had to be done in light of all that's going on.

I think this is best for my family & everyone else.

Stay safe,

Sad to hear but totally understandable.

fyi; I've checked with Jim;
      If (the Virus is done} and you are able to move the HMR to the fall, we'll work with you and combine it with the Final Fall Fling Ride.
          I think that would make it the HMR/FFF-Ride #3/7. <grin>  :)

Ride safe, Ted

Does that mean that Cliff will have to build a motel at his place?  :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :beerchug:

No, he won't need to build a Motel.
  But, I suggest bringing foam padding to place under the sleeping bag. {as ya'll may be setting up the tents in his "Heated" (cement floored) shop}  :rotflmao:
      {I'll be sleeping in a heated/insulated trailer on a padded cot}..  :nananana:

But, I think we need to hear from Cliff before we go that far...  :-\

Okay Ted, Jim & everyone else. I have spoke with Fred, he will not being doing a fall ride so there will be no conflict there. We can do something in the fall, October 23 - 25 are probably best for me as September is busy riding already. Then BVF the is week of October 7 - 9th. I could maybe squeeze in October 2 - 4th.

Fall ride is Ted & Jims thing so they may want to hold it as normal, that will be up to them. If so that's fine also, I just offered to hold a ride here as a makeup event. So a FFF/HMR combo event if that's what they want, their call.

Does this work for Ted/Jim & the masses?  :)

I have a Model T Ford Rally {The Texas "T" Party} on Sept 30 - Oct 3rd.
We haven't missed it in 20 Years, so it's a hafta go..
After that, any time is good with me.

I like; October 23 - 25...

Jim posted earlier that he just rescheduled his vacation to sometimes in October.
Not sure which date he set up..

I talked to him recently about combining the 2 events, and he's ok with that plan.

Yoo hoo,,,,, Jim are you out there??  :19:

Ride safe, Ted

PS: Should prolly the HMR /FFF as I feel the HMR deserves Top Billing.
          After all, we are gonna be staying at your house.

Yes I moved my vacation to Oct 23, 24, 25. So yes those dates will work great for me. And we can make this a combined event.
It can be the Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous 7 / Final Fall Fling 3 rally.
