Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous #9 - May 16th - 19th

Since it's been suggested to me & talked about quite a bit, I'm making it official. HMR #9 will be tied in with the 2024 eclipse since we're in the path of totality. Being early April, the weather could be anything & will probably cut some far north Cogger's from making it down but I can't change the date of eclipse.

So next year's event will be 4 days, April 5 - 8th & will most likely will include 8 meals. Of course, camping is included also & the usual stuff we provide. More details to follow & open to any suggestions for this little camping event. For those not familiar with HMR just scroll down to past threads.

I think we'll call it HMR #9 the Darkside!

Okay, apparently this eclipse thing is a really big deal, bigger than I ever thought. The population is expected to nearly double here in AR.,

Hotels, campgrounds are completely booked. Apparently, every porta john in the state was reserved long before we decided to do this. Without a place to take care of business we can't do this. I am on waiting list but I'm not holding my breath.

So, unless by some chance we manage to luck out & get some this event will be done at later date.

Stay tuned!

Total Solar Eclipse is a memorable event! April weather is iffy but this year in Dallas it was clear after the sun burned off low stratocu in the late morning.

I have been waiting since 21 AUG 17 for the upcoming celestial show.

Combining it with some tyre scrubbing is a great experience.
 
I'm hoping this event will be scheduled later in April. I can watch the eclipse from my house.

Yes, this has been rescheduled for a later date. It should be going on the calendar soon & this thread locked to start another. With the influx of people/traffic we'll have, an eclipse rally was probably a bad idea anyway. ARDOT has already been on the news predicting travel times anywhere in the state to double or triple. Expecting 2 million visitors in a state that only has a population of 3 million. My little town is renting camping spots at the ball fields.

Due to a s/e event the end of April & then Mother's Day, HMR will happen May 16th - 19th. It will be a 4 day event with 6 meals served & a place to camp included as usual.

Details to follow!
 
Apparently, I'm not smart enough to edit the title to remove "on hold" & add the dates.

All the information has been submitted, just waiting for it to be added to the calendar & open registration.
 
In and registered. Not sure if by motorhome or riding. If wifey decides to come, definitely motorhome. Hopefully when I set it up she won't be locked in. ;)

On TDY at Aquirre Springs BLM CG east of Las Cruces, NM.
 
Registered! Can’t wait. Crazy GoldWing Mike is coming too. I may attempt camping as I’ve always wanted to try it while on a motorcycling trip. Mike’s staying at the hotel.

If you talk to me reeeeeeeaaaallll nice {and bring some Beer},,,,,
I could bring the Gold Tent/Trump Tower and set it up for ya to sleep in.
You wouldn't have to buy/bring a tent etc.
*** Instead of a tent you could bring a cot (more comfortable} and a beer cooler to share.

Trump Tower is big, roomy, {room for 3 cots, and tall e'nuff to stand up in} and all the other Campers would be jealous and abuse you.
(like they did me when I used it).

Ride safe, Ted

Nobody needs to see that awful looking spray-painted tent. That thing belongs is the dump! On second thought if you brought it, we could burn it. :LOL::ROFLMAO:


Already have 6 states represented with just 10 registered, FL, GA, TX, MO, KS & SD.

Besides me and Ted will be there so you get free entertainment, free mechanical advice, and plenty of storytelling. It really is one of the best events on the SC calender.

Relax. I understand gold paint gives off wonderful colors as it burns in the brush pile...
 
Hoping I can make it...but it may have to be a game time decision. We'll be in the throes of relocating to Oregon.

We weren't expecting it to happen this soon, but we found a great house in late December and decided to jump on it. First wave of the move is happening in about a month, with various runs (at least 2 currently scheduled) as needed until complete. I am indeed retiring from teaching, with my last contract day on May 23, so I'll still be in KS until at least then.

It's unclear if the bikes are going in the first wave or at the very end. Hell, worst case scenario, I could cage down there.

Would be great to see you all again before I become a PNW COGger.
