Title: Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous #5
Post by: Just Cliff 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.

REGISTER BELOW:

http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/EventDisplayNew.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=249421&mo=4&tDate=%7Bd%20%272018%2D04%2D20%27%7D (http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/EventDisplayNew.cfm?clubID=1328&EventID=249421&mo=4&tDate=%7Bd%20%272018%2D04%2D20%27%7D)

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!

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.

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.

Bring her Steve, the more wives the merrier. Heck, we might even purdy this place up some. Attack dogs are fine too.

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.

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.
Title: Re: Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous #5
Post by: Rico on December 18, 2017, 06:35:13 pm
Yeah, I've been in September and Loveland Pass was 22 and a few feet of snow.....and I'm taking the R1 this trip. No heated grips, but i've used those scooter handle covers, they work pretty good too.

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?

Leaving after HMR could be a bit early, but really depends on snow totals this winter. I go out that way every year, but always in June or July. First time I rode the Sun road at Glacier it was the 3rd. week of July & the road only opened the week prior. Past 2 years have been little snow & fairly mild. It can still be pretty damn cold camping at elevation though.

If you'd like to do both & still start your trip late I'll throw out a couple options. Trailer here & leave your bike, trailer & gear here drive home. Drive back & leave your truck then start your trip.  Return here load up bike & head home. Storage space is not a issue.

Option #2 would be ride out then leave bike & gear, fly home. Fly back here & then start your trip. We'll get you back & fourth to the airport. Allegiant has pretty cheap flights out of Orlando/Sanford. $50.00 - $75.00 one way into Little Rock.

Should you need tires while here, just get them shipped here & we can mount them. You wouldn't be the first to do so.

We'll do whatever we can to help out for one or both trips.  :)

Thanks Cliff.... I'm looking into another option that looks very promising. Do the south part of my trip and leave the bike at my cousins house in Albuquerque and fly home, return in mid July to August and do the northern part.
I'll have an answer in a few days.

Checked on the hotel today, there giving a $65.00 rate. Normal rate is $72.00 they say.

I've put all the details together & sent them to my AD. This should be on the calendar soon. Increased the price some, food cost are up & for the first time I'm gonna have to buy firewood  :'(. I've always cut it myself to help on cost, I just haven't had much dead stuff to cut around here this year. Not to mention this year includes 6 meals.

A place to camp, shower, drinks, ice, ice chest & 6 meals furnished for a mere $40.00. Still a frugal COG bargain in my book!

How cold does it usually get at night, that time a year?

Typically not that cold, 50's - 60's. Spring time in Arkansas it could be anything though.

Cliff   :beerchug:

FYI... And when it gets cold at night, watch out for Cliff. He carries snakes around in his jacket pocket to keep them warm   :o

Nicole didn't like the snake that slivered out the brush pile much after I caught it. Even though it was only about a 30" black snake.

Thinking back, it was dark & I didn't really know what I was catching. Glad it wasn't a copperhead, they make you swell up & turn colors when they bite. Don't ask me how I know!  :??:

Don is having a difficult time choosing between this rally and the SE COG Spring Rally, which is the following weekend. Personally I think he should do both, like many of us are. He could just stay late and cruise over with who ever else is heading to TN. He could always swing by our place, we might be able to put him up (or put up with him) for a couple days.

It's going to a fun two weekends for many of us.

I agree with Don doing both. There's at least one so far hanging out here til time to head to over TN. I want mention Roman's name & I fully expect a couple more!

Yep, there still here Kurt. Yuengling is now available here now as of last week!  :)

Also for anyone arriving early or staying late, I have a stove in the shop now. It will be available for your use.

Every year I consider not doing this again. Then every year I buy something to make it a little better.  :-\   4th year I bought a 100 cup coffee pot, earlier this year I came across a deal on 4 tables & 22 chairs, bought those & 2 weeks ago I bought the stove for the shop.

Thursday night dinner is still undetermined. Considering having a local restaurant set up a Taco bar. To stay in budget we have to keep a 4 Taco limit with beans, chips & salsa. My concern is 4 is not enough, at least not for me. That's about 1/2 my quota! Not to mention it just can't sit out all night waiting on late arrivals.

So we may just stick with pizza. Knowing there will be late arrivals this maybe the best option. Nothing wrong with cold pizza & it can be just be left in the box.

Thursday is the one day we need free & to be easy. Jimmie will be working & I'll be getting people signed in/situated.

Thoughts?

I've eaten my steak cold before.

Cliff, don't over think it to much. No way Kay would eat four tacos, I'm more of 2/3 taco guy. Spaghetti would be good as well, just heat the sauce for the late arrivals and pour over cold noodles. Pizza is good as well.

We'll be stopping at Julie's Sweet Shoppe and Bakery so if all else fails, we will have pie for dinner!!

I can't attend this year due to a previous commitment. Is there someone attending who could help out as the AMA referee. You would need to have completed the AMA Risk Management Training and also be an AMA member?

I know there are a few folks who are AAD or ADs attending who could assist.

I will have everything there ready on your arrival.

I will not be able to make it to Cliff's this year. I've postponed my retirement date a few times. My new target work departure date is 5/25/18. Due to the wonderful efficiency of the SSA and Medicare folks, I need to bank my final vacation days and get a payout instead of a ride to Cliff's.

Have fun. I'll be there next year.

Could be a good place to build an RV park. I'll be there in the Roadtrek again though this time I won't need to be tethered to a 110 volt line. The gas quit on my old fridge last year.

Well....I thought this was going to be the start of a great trip west, but plans change and a good friend needs a little help in Katanawa Japan to finish fixing his sail boat. This might also lead to helping him sail it to Alaska and then down the west coast. Don't know if I will do that part, but this means I have to cancel on this trip. Maybe we will all see each other at RWTW. Have fun everyone.

I see Al taking on a new name here. Now I need to find a horn to stick on his bald head.  :nananana:

This could be a special occasion, he doesn't appear often anymore. It could be his only appearance this year.

He just couldn't resist not seeing my smiling face any longer.  :-* For those that don't know, Al is the reason this event ever got started. He was passing through & called for a place to stay. We put him up as we have many cogger's. When he saw I had space & a large building that's when it begin. He stayed after me for months to host a event. I keep saying nobody wants to camp in my pasture. I finally gave in & did it. Turned I out I was wrong, y'all do like camping in my pasture.  :)

Only 19 spots left so get signed up & come see the Unicorn!

Try to register from clicking on it on this list:

http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/ClubStatic.cfm?clubID=1328&pubmenuoptID=46796 (http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/ClubStatic.cfm?clubID=1328&pubmenuoptID=46796)

I am from the SE region and had a bitch of a time getting to the registration because cogmos kept sending me back to the SE calendar.  I finally logged out of the SE area, then clicked on the rally from the link above and was able to register.

Maybe that will help

I have the same issues getting to an event that's not southeast. Sometimes I get through doing weird stuff, usually not.

I have found that the whole calendar area is easier to access from my smarter than I phone.

I did try clearing cookies on my lap top with no apparent improvement. It's just this software is quite sucky.

How many squirrels does that box call for Jerry? Grays are hard to find around here. Plenty of big red fox squirrels, but there to tough to chew. We could substitute squirrel with rabbit.   :nananana:

As usual, great rally hosted by Cliff and Jimmy and family.

But what an absolutely crappy ride home. It rained on us from Conway to east of Birmingham, we got a short reprieve until Atlanta, then the rain started again with the wind. Got home at 830p, and 11 hour ride. If Kay didn't have to be at work I would have stopped short and over nighted.

Looking forward to seeing some of you in a few days.

I’ll agree with Kurt, the rally was great. Cliff and family did a great job putting on the rally. It was too bad the great bonfire got rained out Saturday night. At least we had three days of great riding.
The rain sucked on the ride back to Alabama. I rode most of the way work Kurt & Kay, thanks for leading the way. The farther east we got the harder it rained. I need better gear, I was soaked  when I got home. Thanks one & all for a great rally.

It was too bad the great bonfire got rained out Saturday night. At least we had three days of great riding.

Only one wet night was a good thing. Everyone got to ride all they wanted. The 5 layover refugees & I did light that fire Sunday night. I'll see if I can get some pictures up later.

We had a great time! Thanks to everyone that came & made this event what it is. They're were several that pitched in here & there, thank you.

A big thanks to Jeff & Joanne Kerkow for providing dinner for the 8 or 9 of us that were here Wed. night. Also to Jim Snyder for volunteering to write a article for the Concouier.  :great:

As usual I always say this year is the last year, we'll see.

The pleasure was all ours. Thank you so much Cliff and your family and friends.  It is great that you do this for COG. To me it also shows what a wonderful group of family and friends that you have. It is wonderful that they are willing to come over every year to help with rally and put up with this eclectic group of people.

Excellent weekend, rally and riding.  Thanks to Cliff and everyone involved.
Even though I was a wimp and headed out Saturday I still think I made the right choice for me.  I got to ride all day again in Ar hills.  I was able to scrape the crust from two days of camping off, have a nice meal and sleep in a warm bed.  Then Sunday I was able to get home faster and dry. So worth it.
Thanks again.

Well, better late than never. Many thanks to the Burnette family for a great weekend..We really missed not having the "big" fire Saturday night, but managed to have a good time anyway.  C'mon Cliff, you know number 6 has to go on!!!!

Amazing time.  Didn't freeze but almost.  Didn't get wet but almost.  Great food, fires and folks.  Oh yea and great roads.  Also thanks to the troopers that were on roads other than the ones I was on.  Cliff you and your family are truly appreciated for all the work you put in.  I know this is where you say you didn't do much but the outcome proves otherwise. 

What really makes this year special is the age old question of how many COGr's it takes to change a tire has been definitively answered.

I was able to meet the South Dakota Refugee COGr's and a couple of wayward Texans after Cliffs and we spent the rest of the week acting like we know how to ride.  Rain, fog and sunshine but every day was a good one.  We were lead by the most interesting man in the world.  His identity is a secret.  Rumors abound.

Did I read something in the COG by-laws about "a rally shall be deemed common-law after the 5th consecutive year"...which means if Cliff pulls out of #6, we get half his property and get to have #6 anyway. :nananana: :rotflmao:

Seriously Cliff, I need to get to an HMR for the WHOLE weekend...please do #6!  Pretty please!

His wife {Jimmie} and the rest of his family are really awesome..!!
  {After all, they have to put up with him}..

The whole family {even Cliff} worked hard every year to put on the past Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous.

They'll need some help to get everything ready for the next one, so I've already told them that Jim will be happy to go up and help them get ready for Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous #6..

A little birdie texted my little birdie and said #6 was on. Kay & I will be there, arriving on Thursday as usual. Just make sure our spot is mowed.  :D

I'll be happy to chip in on a keg as long as it is not that fufu IPA Hoppy type beer. Something normal, like a lager or pilsner, hell I'd even drink some of Ted's Lone Star if he brings it!

So, will there be HMR #6 t-shirts??  :nananana:

Also, you going to have my beer holder installed in the shower by then??

For clarification; Texas Beer;
                            I bring Lone Star for Ron to drink. (ie; Special beer for Special people)
                            For me and Buddies, I bring "Shiner" Bock..
                            NOTE:  If my Cousin is out of jail by then, I May be able to round up some Corn squeezin's too.

Oh wow
, that is another incentive to schedule Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous #6.
    Gotta know when to {err} help my Cousin' get out.  :great:

Hey Cliff, do you have a "holler" behind your place where he can set up?
