I know I'm going to want to eat but I don't care which place we choose. As far as the GPS route goes I just started it in front of McDonalds at the intersection of 70 & 27 because I have to start it somewhere and they have decent coffee.
I'm a guest, I'm good with whatever the group decides. I can work around any of it!

I'll be tenting it at Arrow head and I'll be trailering the AT up Fri morning. All of this sounds FANTASTIC! and I can't wait. What ever place and time we are meeting up, just let me know, I'm there!

Re: Arkansas ADV Ride Aug 24-26

On the second/final version of the Saturday route for any of those that transferred the tracks to your device, just make sure the entire route is there. For some reason on my Garmin Montana it stopped at about 170 miles instead of the 204. I did another route to complete the ride and can post it if there is a need.

BTW, the weather report is looking good!!!

Re: Arkansas ADV Ride Aug 24-26

Think Iím going to ride up Friday. That GS does better on the street than any street bike Iíve ever owned. Might as well let it stretch its legs some.

Re: Arkansas ADV Ride Aug 24-26

I came up with an 86 mile route starting and ending in Glenwood if anyone is interested. I tried to come up with something that would work Friday afternoon or Sunday morning and this may do the trick.

Sorry, its late for me and I don't remember how to post the map. Maybe someone will come behind me and post it.

Re: Arkansas ADV Ride Aug 24-26

Here are the GPX files:

Friday - 58 miles - http://s000.tinyupload.com/download....18393517453083

Saturday - 204 miles - http://s000.tinyupload.com/download....74503615780674

Sunday - 86 miles - http://s000.tinyupload.com/download....15669867255285

I just guessed on the days, but those are the routes and distances.

Hey Rob, Ari's Little Italy is really good and the Caddo Cafe has a great breakfast! That is where the locals eat.
