REGISTRATION is NOW OPEN!!! Go to the Roll The Bones website!
http://www.Rollthebonesrally.com
This year we will be at Possum Hollow Camp which is where I did the Possum Trot Rally a few years ago.
I know we had some complaints about not enough dirt so we should have alleviated that this year. This will be all new routes tho some will cross the old PTAR route.
Everything you need to know will be on the website! T-shirts are not set up yet!

Question has arose about tshirts. Due to issues beyond my control orders were not able to go as we have done in the past. That said, the disorganizing committee ordered tshirts to be sold at the rally on a first come first serve basis. My advice is buy your shirt when you check in at registration, I did look at past years and ordered a best guess in sizes, Registration will take place at Cabin 7.

:headbang: Just realized this is the same weekend as my niece's wedding in Phoenix. And for me, family first. So unless something goes south for the future couple (I hope not) I'm out.

Do we already have some folks scouting routes, etc?

"Challenging" dirt roads can be few and far between out there- I might be willing to take a few smaller dual sports out to Rocky Ridge for a day ride if you want the comraderie but prefer trails instead of dirt roads.

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.

Don't take that wrong for those not from the area. You can put together a good set of dirt roads, but unless it rains, it will pretty much all be big bike friendly (I think)

If it rains, there are a couple of really good spots to set up a camera!

I have one person scouting but I need all the help I can muster.:chug:

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.

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.

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?

I’m interested, but I’m an inexperienced rider (1 year on October). Would this work for me or should I hold on until I get more experience?

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.
