Made it 1100 miles from the sandbox without any drama. Sitting on the deck at the inlaws 180 miles north of Byrds waiting for the nefews graduation to be over. I need a drink.
Leaving here at dark thirty in the morning

On page 23 DRZ Charlie asked if there will be "Beer Medics" at checkpoints on the singletrack. Sounds like a great idea! Charlie, you were a snake eater, you know how to do I.V.s, if I bring a I.V. kit with beer in it will you do the honor of administering my Beer Medic I.V.? I'll take a beer I.V., but please, NO BEER ENEMAS! They ain't talkin me into THAT again. Had to replace my muffler bearings twice the last time.

There are usually a few street only folks at any of these type events. There are also usually some big bike/easy off road /pavement guys too on the big adventure bikes. It's all fun in that area on any type bike.

It's hard to find a better all highway location than that area anywhere in the world. I've ridden Deals Gap, (Tail of the Dragon), and most of the Cherohala Skyway all around there in NE Georgia, W. Virginia, Tennessee, and other places in the Smokies and Blue Ridge mtns. N.W. Ar. is just as good or maybe even better for road riding. Less traffic and just as twisty. Less LEOs here in Ar. You had best keep in mind riding the twisties in that area that it will probably be hours before any ambulance, first responders, med flights, or even a cop will get to you if you get hurt. Several yrs ago we had to get a med flight to a guy who had a really bad crash on a remote dirt road west of Mill Creek, took 2 hrs to get him out. An ambulance couldn't get to him, the roads were too rough. We finally got a chopper landed in a farmers field close enough. Funny thing was the guy who crashed was our medic/paramedic!

Another time a buddy of mine crashed at Byrds and died! Another rider did CPR and got him back, then he died again on the med flight, they got him back again. He's a tough ol dog, he's still riding and still fast.

Can't beat the singletrack, twotrack, dirt roads, or pavement in Arkansas. You can't beat it, but it all can sure beat you! Me anyway. But that's what makes it so fun.

I'm trying like heck to make it up tonite. Might be midnight, but I should be there late night or early morning tomorrow. I'll be in a black and grey Isuzu Trooper with a little black enclosed trailer, red older GasGas. All my equipment looks old and beat up. It is. I also look old and beat up. I am. But I still got a bike and a quart of moonshine so I'll be fine!

Packed and ready...

The FJ is packed and ready to roll... I'm headed out early Friday morning, looking to arrive about lunch time.

It's looking like it may be a bit wet this weekend... Bring your wet riding gear folks.

... And tent camping is gonna suck...

I'm bringing a whole big bottle of RUM for this one.

SCRazor, you're offering to let one of us fools ride your bike? At White Rock? You should get the Nobel Peace prize this year. And any other of them fancy awards for those that do good for others.

Forget Ghandi, Bill Clinton, the Dali Lama, Pope John Paul the whatever, and Malcolm Smith. You trump the best chicks at Hooters which I'm truly convinced one will eventually get the Nobel Prize. You even far surpass those that if you flirt enough they make you the top shelf Long Island Ice Tea in the big glass for the regular price and slip you an extra order of wings for free. Although I admit I'm not sure how I'd vote on that. My heart would be with SC Razor, but the rest of me for the Hooters girl.

Speaking of Hooters, and wayyy off subject, but if you ever want to get slapped at Hooters, just do like I did and tell a hot black chick with a big rock hard ghetto booty but not blessed in the chest, that you just had a great idea:

"I'm gonna start up my own place like this and call it Pooters, and I want you to be my best waitress"! Damn, them black chicks can slap hard. Knocked the wing right out of my mouth. Made me blow beer out of my nose.

Almost forgot why I was gonna post this late: Just now going to bed, will shoot for morning-noon tomorrow for arrival.

Peace, Out, my brothers and sistas.

Nebraska John- while we enjoy the pics and tales, we'll unfortunately request that you post all these again in the official SLAP ride reports and pics thread. Coming soon.

This planning thread will eventually be locked by the mods after the rally is over.
