Fair warning, it is about 2 hours from Possum Hollow to Rocky Ridge, and we'd have to pay the entry fee as well (I think it's $15 per person). I could haul as many as 4 bikes on a trailer as well.

There is plenty there for novices, and a good amount of more advanced trails as well, but not a whole lot of "extreme" trails, although there are a couple.
I have one person scouting but I need all the help I can muster.

I wish I could help set that up for you, but I don't know squat about web design. I do know somebody that does. I can check and see if she wants to help you.

Re: Roll The Bones ADV Rally IX, October 26-28, 2018

What is the roll the bones rally? is this just a dual sport ride? a scavenger hunt?

as a new guy to motorcycles in general, I'm easily confused by this stuff.

Its a get together with riding. There will be some dirt riding, some street riding, food and drink. In the past there have been some suggested routes, but you're free to do whatever riding you'd like. They're will be plenty of small dual sport bikes there and a pretty good number of ADV touring bikes and a few street only bikes.

Its a great way to meet and see other like-minded motorcycle people.

Re: Roll The Bones ADV Rally IX, October 26-28, 2018

ah. thanks Dahveed. I wondered about the scavenger hunt thing because roll the bones could have been a dice reference. I could see rolling dice at check points to get a score and ride around.

I'm looking forward to more details to see if could try and take some time off work to attend. I have to be careful with the time I have left to take off this year.

Found these while cleaning up. The one on the right is a sticker from the first RTB. Well, my phone or Tapatalk decided the photo should be rotated. Whatever.

Re: Roll The Bones ADV Rally IX, October 26-28, 2018

Just left Possum Hollow and we are officially a go there. Feel free to reserve cabin, bunk space , RV slot or tent spot there. I will update post one as soon as I figure out a good way to handle registration!

Is there a discount rate on the rooms or RV slots? Are there showers available for the tent folks?

You should do it. The only way you'll get experience is to ride.

There will be flower sniffers, gravel road racers, camp sitters, and everything in between. Be there early and you'll find a group who likes to take their time.

This is for everyone at all levels....This can lay the groundwork for years to come.
