Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

There's a route around the lake that starts about a half mile from the park entrance (turn left out of the entrance, then left onto the road). It's not bad. A little challenging in places. I'd say its level of yikes would depend on if it had rained. It's pretty narrow, too, so meeting someone coming in the other direction would be entertaining.

There are some route suggestions on the RMR site, too, but that's the only one I've ridden. I can't remember what it's called.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

Okay. I registered. With my real name...hopefully the woodbutcher email will be a clue that it was me. .

Is there an extra fee for camping in the group tent area? I added that to my cart, but it didn't add a fee.

Gotcha, Rusty!

The tent camping is (estimated) $14/night paid at registration. It will not be more than that but if we can lower it, we will.

Glad you'll be there!!!

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

I've been going back and forth between camping and trying the lodge, but since my wife is heading for Phoenix then, that means I'll be alone. Seems like a lot of luxury for just me. So the TentMahall for me.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

In. All registered up - planning to pack the tent.

Looking forward to the Tiddler to the Top.

Also, I'm working on an easy off-pavement Tiddler ride for Friday exploring roads in the National Forest to the East & South of Rich Mtn. Length/time of ride can vary depending upon arrival times of participants. If we have all day, the general idea is to venture twds Little Missouri Falls, riding 125 miles with the longest distance between gas stops up to 90 miles. An afternoon ride would be 80 miles with up to 50 miles between gas stops.

So dust off those smaller street legal trail/dual sport bikes and let me know regarding an most-all-day or a 1/2 day Friday the 15th Tiddler exploration and we'll set a departure time.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

How do we make RV reservations? When I add RV site to the cart, it shows zero. What is the cost for an RV site

I think you do RV site reservations through the park office, not through CASA.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

Not much life and enthusiasm in this thread. I think this is one of the best rallies and most fun one with some of the best riding I go to. Cynthia does a fantastic job of putting this on. Hard to say how many are going this year without a running list of who is signed up. (Hint hint)

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

Kat, you are a gifted promoter! I found this wonderful invitation to your TDub friends on the tw200 forum:

"I can't believe I slacked and didn't tell y'all about the super-funnest-bestest rally on the planet!* I've been a part of this for going on 4 years now and it's a really good time. The rendezvous is a benefit to support CASA of the Ouachita. Registration is $50 and includes a whole lotta food, entertainment, and a rendezvous t-shirt.

Brand new for this year is ... drum roll ... The Tiddler to the Top! - a 120-ish mile run for bikes 250cc and under. There's no fee or cost to participate. There will be an awards ceremony of sorts with some ridiculous awards. Maybe YOU can win "Longest Lunch Break" or "Best Checkpoint Selfie" or something else I make up at the last minute

Come on out! You will not be disappointed!

Rich Mountain Rendezvous 2017 will be held from September 14-17, 2017. Registration is open now at rmr4casa.com

Save $5 on registration with the coupon code ERLYBRD by August 1, 2017.

What: Rich Mountain Rendezvous 2017
Where: Queen Wilhelmina State Park, Mena, AR
When: Sept. 14-17, 2017
Why: To support the CASA of the Ouachita volunteers who care for abused and neglected children in foster systems.

Great food, great riding, great entertainment - all the greatness for $50. That even includes your event t-shirt!

Register today - We’ll see you on the mountain!

We even have a Facebook page now because we're getting so 21st century www.facebook.com/rmr4casa

Cancelled my RV spot #23 for the 13th through 17th.
Some one better act fast. This is the longest site in the campground, and close to the bathrooms and festivities.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

Message from our fearless leader, the Prof himself!

"To all, a personal note about Rich Mountain Rendezvous. I will not be able to attend, but will be there in spirit. Cancer treatments take their toll.

More than ever the "meeting on the mountain" is important. It is about the kids. CASA needs your support to help those kids. Besides, just think of all the great riding...on and off-road....there is. Not to mention great food, music, friends...new and old, prizes, and for some, wrenching a problem and helping another rider.

So bring a smile and some $$$ for CASA. If for some reason you can't attend, send a check marked "CASA." Reserve a spot for camping or at the renovated hotel. Please do this right away as Cynthia, and the gang need to have an accurate count for this, the 18th year on Rich Mountain.

Peace to all, Steve "Prof" Johnson "

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

Here is the general ride info & schedule for the Tiddler To The Top:

Friday, September 15th:
Rider's meeting at 8:30am after breakfast at camp or lodge, after which we'll ride to Mena for a gas stop, then East/South into the Ouachita National Forest. The length & route will be depend on circumstances of the day, such as weather, temperature, road conditions and our spirit of adventure, with the overall loop varying from 70-130 miles. After the first ~25 miles, this group ride will focus on unpaved but "groomed" NFS & county roads as much as practicable, with the potential of a couple of short side-trips that are a little more challenging. A lunch stop will be included, and the longest run between gas stops should not exceed 90 miles (friendly to stock TW200 tanks + a couple of us plan to carry 1-gallon extra fuel, just in case). All riders are invited to join us - our pace will be amenable to Tiddler bikes. We'll plan to return to camp by, say, 3-4pm.

Distance from Last Gas Stop on Friday to 1st Gas Stop on Saturday is ~75 miles.

Saturday, September 16th:
After a great Rendezvous breakfast at camp, we'll have a rider's meeting at 8:30, after which we'll head West twds Oklahoma. All riders will be given a route sheet at camp. The primary route is ~127 mile paved road route with a gas stop a ~40 miles and gas/lunch at ~80 miles. However, there are a some options for side trips to see old bridges and/or ride across the dam of a small lake. There will also be an true short-cut thru the woods for the adventurous that cuts off 12 miles. We should all return to camp by, say, 3pm to rest up for the evening festivities.

The Tiddler to the Top is a great opportunity for riders with small bikes and/or scooters to enjoy the area.
