 April temps may nudge 90f. That's considered comfortable riding out in these parts. That should be afternoon temps. Morning temps will be wonderful with low humidity.

Make it first weekend in April.  Wildflowers usually are cooked after that.

Yes! That way I can do the horseshoe mountain rendezvous in Arkansas at the end of April as well.

This is what 'm looking at. Truly vintage. Local BBQ and hot springs baths. Thoughts? https://www.delightshotspringsresort.com/en-us

Ok by me- I’m probably bringing the trailer so I can skip the freeway part.

Cool I'll get on rooms and dates. They have several campgrounds there also.

April 3-5 is great with me!

I have never stayed there overnight but i have availed myself of the hot springs pools after rides and after work many times.  I like the place and would happily stay there!  Pros and cons in no particular order or priority:

Pros:
- very clean and well kept
- hot springs pools are in private “rooms”.  Walls, but open to the sky.
- RV camping spaces
- good riding location for DV!

Possible Cons:
- no smoking in the hot springs rooms.
- only 4 hot springs rooms, so have to switch out every 30 minutes if there is a line.  Nice little courtyard to wait in though.
- no alcohol in the hot springs rooms, theoretically. [Insert casual tuneless whistling here]
- last I heard they had quiet hours after 8pm.

Resort looks awesome -- nice find Old Man.

Nearby restaurant looks good too!

Noticed that you have to bring in your own drinking water. Maybe anyone coming in on a trailer can mule in some 1-5 gallons jugs.

Haha, maybe true. Just don't give me shite if you see me brushing my teeth while chillin' in the hot tub.

Hey, and I see the local brew pub has free refills on coffee. Wonder if they mark the date on the cups or if one is good all weekend?  :great:

Do we have official dates? 

It's only 1300 miles from Seattle to there.  If the timing works with other plans, I might be able to fit it in.

I'll have to get someone to fill in for me at the seminary class I help teach in the prison.  So I'm a maybe at this point.

With all the interesting locations for this next summer, I'm estimating 14,400 miles for just road trips.  It'll be a good year.
