UPDATE: Yes I have finally made the routes for the trip. Mapsource was kicking my ass, but I think I have it figured out.
I washed the bike did all the pre ride check and I am ready to go.
I have called the Sun Country Inn and reserved 4 rooms for Sept 20. This should give us, Jackie & Alta, Dave & Traci and Vern & Shelly a place to stay that evening. Looks like Rob,& Bo & Cindy, are heading up on Friday and will meet us up there. Clay is still on the fence but we are hoping he can make it. I know Tom is coming up from Houston but do not know when he is riding up. I am working on the routes for all of us with a GPS . (insert jokes here! hehehe)
I was surfing around ST.net and saw that this years regional get together will be held in Eureka Springs this year. I have already called and booked a room. The rooms are filling up fast. I think that Jamie and I will ride up into Arkansas on Thursday afternoon and then stay in Mena on Thursday evening. We will make the rest of the trip up to Eureka Springs on Friday as we might have to make a Mt Magazine stop as well. We will then ride home on Sunday. So does anyone want to join us? I know this is a little far in advance but I just thought I would see what we could get started.
