and we'll see you all in Eureka Springs Texas in August.

Well, this is the secret location that Gleno and I will be at, but the rest of you should go to Eureka Springs, Arkansas in OCTOBER

Good work, Chief. I can't wait. The memory of Gunnison is still very fresh in my mind. Riding out there with good friends Bill and Dave, even in the heat and rain. Finally climbing and climbing when we got to the mountains and it started to get cooler. Running into Limecreek, first, someone I hadn'dt met. And then John and Ruth for a quick pizza dinner. Then the three of us again making our first run at those awesome roads. Three RTs kicking up imaginary dust as we explored, anxious to get to the campground and meet new friends and greet old ones. Then standing around and talking, riding with Fernando, Cary, Howard, and others. Eating, laughing, giving Gleno a hard time from the podium. Meeting Ron B and Dakota Dave for breakfast, just by accident. Running into you and Tom and crew, and then slowly riding together as we made our way northeastward. Man, I wish Eureka Springs was next week.

I looked over that web site for Iron Horse Stables, and it looks like a perfect setting.

I'm going to need a fix--several fixes, actually--between now and then, though.

I'm in at the Iron Horse. I got the "Swamp" room. Sounds interesting hu? I'll be there the 6th through the 9th. Hopefully I can keep the shiny side up until then so I don't miss out again like I did last year Look forward to seeing everyone there.

I know what you mean about needing a few fixes until then David. I figure Mayhem will be a good way to start off. I was able to put almost 11k miles on the KRS in three months. I can hardly wait for a whole summers worth of riding:)

On the road again...just can't wait to get on the road again... dum di dum di dum...

Let's see, just short of 1,000 miles to from NY to Nashville. With someplace to stay in Nashville (Anyone see DCB?) we could make that a nice stop over for the BB on the way to Eureka Springs...

Just got the last room at the Iron Horse Stables - the Master Suite with the Jacuzzi. (They said they were saving it for Jake, but too bad for you, my friend.)

Iron Horse is starting a waiting list for anybody interested in one of the motel rooms.

Doh!

They have a few of those little A-frames on the premises too. Not sure how cozy they are, but they're sure to keep hANNAbONE outta your beer stash!

Come on down to Eureka Springs and play on great roads and catch up with new and old friends. Let me see if I can entice those of you who still need some convincing. Get out your GPS, your paper map, sextant or whatever you use to navigate with, no comments mjames or Wurty. Searching out this list is something you should do when you can't get out, because of weather. Here's what you're looking for:

Arkansas Routes:

21 South
23 South
16 East/West
7 North/South
74 East/West
123 North/South
374 East/West
12 East/West
303 East/West
14 North/South
65 North/South

All of the above routes have a few twists and turns. These are a few of the routes you'll be on when you're in Arkansas. We will be using great roads in Southern Missouri also, but I'll share those with you in the deepest of the Winter. I invite those of you who have toured in Arkansas, Southern Missouri and Northeast Oklahoma to add your favorite routes as well.

So make your plans and come and enjoy the Ozarks. While the roads are great the catching up with people whose posts you've read can't be beat. BTW, it's 70 degrees and sunny today. Life is good when you ride the Ozarks.

Most hotel/motel contact information can be found at EurekaSprings.org

Yup. The rooms at the Iron Horse are gone so you might also want to check out the following two links for lodging and general local info.

www.virtualtourist.com/vt/b63d7/ and www.eurekaspringschamber.com/

Looks like I'll be at the Swiss Village -- per tip from Iron Horse -- so now you'll know where to find or avoid me.

I also blocked two other rooms at Swiss Village for some folks who are now out of the country. If anyone runs into a room problem, I'll release one of rooms now. Just let me know.

Looks like I'll be riding down from NYC area sometime Sunday to arrive sometime Monday. Welcome some company, cause I saw that Deliverance movie which gave a whole new meaning to the words, Southern Hospitatlity.

When choosing a hotel in ES.....please consider the list Jake gave you. He made notes about which ones have nice parking.

Wherever you book, ask these questions:
Do you have paved parking?
Is it level?
Do you have off street parking?

There are a multitude of places to stay and most of them are really nice. It is hill country...so ask about the parking.

OK gang, lets bring more women than the last unrally. I'm bringing the better half, but I'm not sharing. If enough woman show up, we might even entice Wurty to join us.
