Queen Wilhelmina RTE November 19th
« on: October 19, 2016, 07:33:54 pm »
Ok we are having a ride to Queen Wilhelmina/Talihina Skyway in Arkansas & Oklahoma on Saturday November 19th.
The route will start in New Boston Tx at the Bostonian motel on Hwy 8 in New Boston Texas. There will be a stops in DeQueen Ark and Mena for anyone who wants to join in along the way. The lunch stop will be at the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge. I have contacted the Bostonian Inn in New Boston at I-30 & Hwy 8 and they have singles for $45 and doubles for $50 for anyone wanting to come up on Friday night. Their number is (903)628-5561.  The return route will have drop off points on the return side for those that need to head back towards the Dallas area. The plan is for kickstands up at 9 am Saturday morning. The ride is about 295 miles total. This is a very relaxing ride route with country roads and twisties. And lunch and the view at the Lodge is awesome. Let me know if ya'll are interested. PM me or email diamondj304@msn.com. My cell is (903) 918-4014.

For those traveling some distance after the ride,
    Consider getting a room at the Bostonian Inn in New Boston for Sat night.
   (We may not be back to New Boston area until late in the day..)
   (and mebbe we could squeeze in a short ride Sun morning before everyone departs for home.

So, who's interested in going??

Ride safe, Ted

Thinking about my previous note, I had a thought to squeeze a few more miles.
I'm thinking, we'll probably need to stay somewhere on Sat night.
Sooooooooo,,,,,,,,,,,, (since we're gonna be there Sunday morning anyway)

What about,,, Kickstands up at 9 am Saturday morning. (New Boston)
                    Ride further North on Sat than originally planned, but, "do" (before dark) start south.
                    Ride south, but not all the way down to new Boston
                    Stay in a Motel on Sat night in Mena or somewhere North of Mena.
                    Travel home Sunday (259), starting from that Motel?

Thoughts?

Ride safe, Ted

Well...shucks...I don't think that much of a ride would be good for my C-10...since coming from Colorado (6600' elevation) to Arkansas (400' elevation)...the idle seems to have increased 400 rpm...makes me think it might be running leaner...and, I don't have time to do anything about it before the ride...

Maybe next time...

Sounds like a great time.  I'd love to make it, but I have a small mechanical malfunction.   :-\

I'll work at making the Wildflower though.
