Robert and I are at the Hilltop Inn. There's lots of lightning and we're supposed to have 1" hail within the hour. We have our bikes parked under the motel awning for now. Later, when/if the storm passes, we'll head over to Cliff's.

Western AR is under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 1000. Right now KLZK is painting mostly rain although there is a little hail SE of Little Rock.

Hope nothing severe comes your way!

I neglected to mention that Robert and I had a nice ride to Poteau, OK Wednesday afternoon. We rode down to Talihina yesterday morning, then on the Talimena Scenic Drive to Mena. What a beautiful ride. We then rode up to Fayetteville on 71, then east on 16 to Sand Gap. What a fun ride! We were getting low on gas, so went south on 7 to Russellville. Then east on I-40 to Conway and north to Greenbrier.

Cliff, thank you, and your family for opening your home to all of us. Took a little longer way home and made it here just ahead of another thunderstorm. We'll see y'all in Helen

Back home now........left foot in bucket of icewater :o  Despite my "incidents" on Saturday it was a great time. Really too bad so many bailed out, but I get it. Aside from Cliff and Jimmie's typical fine hospitality, I really owe Jimmie a huge thanks for taking care of my crunched ankle :great: :great: I appreciate it a ton!  Rode up to Kansas City with Rick (Rasmith) and stowed my bike at his place, took a much needed shower and then he took me to KC airport and I flew home the rest of the way to Minneapolis. Good thing too, I was pretty pooped by KC... I'll go retrieve the bike as soon as the ankle allows :??:

Anywho, another one in the books and I sure hope they do it again next year so I get a chance to change my luck :))

Another great weekend at Cliff's place.  Regardless of the rain it was great seeing everyone.  Once again the bar has been set high.  I hope to see everyone at the Spider Ride in September.

Thanks so much to Cliff and his family for hosting us. I had a great time I think the odometer said 2200 miles by the time I got home today. I also went to see some fun places in Arkansas.

Anybody now where these are ?

Kay & I had a great time! Thank you Cliff, Jimmie and family for the fine hospitality.

We made it home about 720pm (et), with riding in rain from the AL/MS state line to Birmingham. Of course we timed it just perfect to hit all the Talladega race traffic.

Looking forward to Horseshoe Mountain Renedvous #4. Jimmie said we would have T-shirts next year!!

Because of the reduced crowd, everyone was able to walk away with a door prize. Plus, even with the reduced numbers, we raised $400 for OTP!!
