Yup, still here, eating all of that good BBQ left over from the rally. Moved the tent and stuff inside the garage so I can get out tomorrow early without packing up everything wet. Cliff and I went out on the four wheeler's together yesterday. Pretty sure he views these thing as mini bulldozers, as we didn't avoid or go around anything.
Molly is starting to think I'm now part of the family. Heading to even cooler weather in NC doesn't seem too attractive, but seeing everyone will help the pain go away.
Leaving FL for cooler weather seemed like a good idea a week ago. Now I could use some of that heat. Never satisfied....are we?

Ft. Lauderdale tied Death Valley for high temp in the nation yesterday at 96.  No one needs that warm.

Great Time with good memories!
 BIG Thank You, to the Burnette family for GOOD TIMES! GOOD FOOD! and New Friends.

Made it home Monday evening, camped in DAVY CROCKETT NATIONAL FOREST on Sunday- the big trees keep me from floating down stream- awoke to a huge bath tub in my tent- made good use of it.

Thanks to Tony for leading the ride to Jasper, on Saturday

Until we meet again, HAPPY TRAILS

Did anyone do a video of the twisties?
If so, please post it here.

I would like to send it to Al's "OtP" hosts in Germany/all....
Let them see some Arkansas Twisties.   ;)

Ride safe, Ted

Finally......getting my photos posted up!  Cliff, Jimmie....ya hit it outta the park again :) Thank you and the whole family a TON for all you did to make this a great time for everyone again this year. I do believe NC members were in the majority, but we had folks from all over the country. Truly a multi area event :You_Rock_Emoticon:  My ride home was 1000% better this year, I did the 815 miles in around 13 hours with just a little mist and dang little wind. Zero performance awards :o

Can't wait till next year....(hint hint).  Yer on a roll.

 Thanks for posting your pictures, Brian & Fais. Very nice.

Hey Gumby, you can always fly out & ride my bike. If there's a #3, but we'll have to see about it.

Before this thread gets pushed down & fades away. I would like to show off the very nice steak knives that Marcel presented us with.
Thanks again Marcel! It was very nice meeting you & your son.

I forgot to post this earlier on. There was a rain cover found in the pasture for a tank bag, if it's yours PM me. I will send it to you.

Thanks again everybody for a good time!

Thanks for posting those Larry, nice picture.

:great:  What is w/that snake?   

It appears to be a cotton mouth water moccasin, the one snake I want anything to do with. Mean & aggressive. They stink terribly also, you can smell them before you see them.
