Oh yes, each year we have "Hammockers". There are a few trees in the primative camping area to use. On a different note: those Conastoga Wagons are really not a bad deal at $99 per night if a couple wanted to stay there comfortably (and were not "campers"). They have air/heat/electricty........might be kinda fun just to tell your buddies you and your wife/GF/Mistress stayed in one.....I compare to it staying in one of those Treehouse Units shown on the internet.
BIG "Thankyou" to Eric (EZ-E) for his Patagonia Presentation......the guy has been places!!

The 2020 Rally is in the books......looking forward to (hopefully) a much better year in 2021. Everyone stay safe.......riding and the covid thang........make your plans for May at The Iron Horse.

Has anyone done a hammock camp there? It's hard to tell from the site pictures if it would work.
Yes. We have had one or two hammocker's the last few years. I'll look through my pics and see if have any good shots. Might want to get there early to pick your trees. :)

Well that's good news. While I missed everyone out there last weekend I was at Tellico. So for the whole weekend, 1150 miles of fuel, one meal out, and some drinks cost me just a little over $100 total. I'm not spending that a night on lodging ;). After being a tent camper for 3 decades I've discovered I sleep much better off the ground than I ever did on it.

ya, I'm sorry I missed you guys this year. I just couldn't take the chance that any of you guys were infected!😷 I missed the morning 🥓 and yakking with Bill!
Missed you too, Rich........I had something "special" to give you. Ha ha......guess it will wait until May?? Bill ended up going home Friday morning after his FI Light came on, and then his bike would not turn over 1-2 times. He did make it home OK, tho. He was keeping his distance from everyone as well. Guess you saw his shirt.....(go to the rally website.... www.easternvstromrally.com): it said "Sons of Arthritis" on the front......."Piss & Moan Chapter" on the back. He loved it.

Sad you didn't make it down,, but the weather was nice . Had my chair strapped to my bike but I did go up to the Gap and watched the show. I guess we'll see you in May . Keep all the snow up yonder this winter. I don't need any slippery stuff down here this winter. See ya later.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Mark,

You got enough room to pitch some tents in your back yard if the 2 of us decide to ride to Birmingham? In our haste to beat the rain home we never did stop to check out barbers

Ok, WE are fast approaching the 2021 May V-Strom Rally. Don't forget to make a reservation or other arrangements for the Rally. The October Rally this year was larger and better than we anticipated due to the current situation. See you all in May on the 20-23rd dates.

Oh hells yes. 2019 was awesome... Hopefully those borders open :)
More folks signing up already. It sounds like we will have another great year of riding in May. Looking to try some new things this time. Anyone have something they want to try while we are together this year? Example (slow race, obstacle course, or ???). Let us know and we will see how much interest the riders have.
We have been visiting the Wheels Through Time MC Museum in Maggie Valley for a few years and it is one of the rides most asked for but we are open to new suggestions too.
We really don't pre-plan any rides other then the Museum but feel free to let all know what you would like to do, see ride and maybe at least it will start everyone thinking where they would like to ride this coming May.
Every time I think I have my routes planned out for the Rally, something comes along and the plans get forgotten. (easy to forget things when you are our age). Really looking forward to this years event, a lot going on and not too many fun and positive things to enjoy. It sure is good to see all of the old hats and meet all the new riders. This is slowly becoming a social event for me.
I will be downsizing the 1000 soon and I believe a 650 is in my future. Damaged leg and wrist still giving me fits and not getting along with the big bike now. Watch out I will be full of questions for you if you ride a 650 this year. Stalky, this means you too.
Ride safe and visit us at the Rally in May at the IronHorse.
