Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous #5
« on: November 10, 2017, 12:42:28 pm »
HMR #5 will happen April 19 - 22 of 2018. Most everything will be the same as in the past. So if you've never been checkout the past threads.

This year it will be an official 4 day event, about 1/2 show up on Thurs. anyway. May up the registration cost to cover 3 dinners & 3 breakfast instead of the normal 2 & 2. Either way, a place to camp, shower, porta johns, ice chest, coffee, soft drinks & water will all be  included in the cost.

When I get all the details worked out I'll edit this post & get it on the calendar. Just getting the dates out there for now since I've been getting questioned on this.

Lets see some new faces this year!

I hope to be one of the new guys for HMR #5. I missed #4 due to some health issues that prevented me from riding. Now I'm just trying to figure out when to pull the plug on work.

Cliff, thanks for doing this again. I'll see you in April.

About as good as it gets Rico, hope to see you here. If your trip plans involve a truck & trailer you could always trailer here. Leave the truck & trailer here, then carry on with your trip. We'll put you up on the return!

I'm definitely planning on being there and this time, I'll have my own tent.   :)  May not be the on the same level as Ted's Golden Taj Mahal tent from last year, but will hopefully keep me dry when it rains.

Very much appreciate it. I wanted to do some Colorado passes, but I'm reading that some don't open until June! Anyone know if that is a common thing, or do they open in May sometimes?

Cliff thanks for doing this again.  I know you were on the fence.   I really hope to make this one is why I care.  I will be retired by then and I am not planning to leave on my big trip until May or early June so I hope I can test my bike and camping gear on the event.

Always a good gathering of n/c cogger's here. Look forward to seeing y'all back.

Bring her Jeff. If you need a special plug in for your RV let me know & I'll put one in.

Highly likely bringing the Roadtrek and spousal until also. Unless we need AC I should not need a plug in. We plan on San Antonio after, followed by Big Bend Park then New Orleans then home. Will likely have killer attack Chihuahua along.

All plans are in flux with the your Rendezvous, RWTW, VBR4 and Spider being pretty well locked in. Just not sure how everything else we/I are doing will fit in or what vehicle when. We'll see when we see. We'll make sure to have a muzzle for the attack killer Chihuahua.

Ok vacation days for this event are confirmed. Ted and I may try for better accommodations this time. Even though our gold Trump Towers tent was a big hit, it was too cold for two old codgers like us.

I'm still contemplating this, but hate to move my big trip up by 3 weeks to a month, because I don' want to get to Colorado to early and the high passes I want to travel are still closed or frozen. My trip plan was to head through the south, TX, NM, AZ, a little bit of Nevada, Utah, Colorado and if not too cold maybe Yellowstone and SD before heading back. I was planning on leaving the middle of May for 4 to 5 weeks. Do you think If i start from Horseshoe will it be too early?

They can have snow in the passes in Co in June.    July and August are about the only two safe months.
