ADVMoto Adventure Rally, 18-20 Sep, Romney, WV

Registration recently opened for the 2015 ADVMoto Adventure Rally, scheduled for September 18-20, staged from the Wapocoma Campground, near Romney, WV.

Looks like the event has grown from last year, with more rides and activities.

Lots of fun last time, expecting even more this year.

Great to hear...the bar has been set pretty high based on the first ADVMoto Rally...the entire package was first rate IMO, I had a great time and enjoyed it. Of course...winning that $200 KLIM certificate was pretty nice too!!!

I see the Wapocoma campground is right on the Potomac River...my fly rod & gear will be on the KLR for sure!

We've got basically the whole campground which can hold over 300 sites. Many of the spaces you're counting (and are listed as numbered spots in the campground map) are big enough for much larger vehicles but we're still discouraging putting trailers or cars between bikes since that will reduce the usable space and the "field of bikes" feeling I love so much. :)

You can camp as a group, don't worry about that. You can even register up to 5 people at a time this year (but you will need all their info). Best thing to camp as a group is to all arrive together if possible, but if not, then save a space for your buddies. Like last year, plenty of firewood will be available plus we'll be having a bonfire, likely on the river or near the music.

Mucho improvements this year based on the feedback. We took it very seriously and tried to address even the smallest issues. Even more prizes this year at 10k. Sam Manicom is flying in to present and Bret Tkacs from PSSOR will be speaking on his travels in South America on Friday as well as doing the half-day Advanced Training on Saturday. Food is buffet style and much improved.

All of last year's attendees should have received an email with details, but I'll put it in below. Looking forward to seeing everyone there again this year!

P.S. Gerbing's heated gloves and controller kit as prizes just walked in the door!

--------------

ADVMotoRally.com


Many improvements to the 2015 Rally in the areas of location, amenities, riding, training, food, vendors, prizes and entertainment make this the year of MORE!

When: September 18-20, 2015

Where: New location at Wapocoma Campground with more level ground, shaded camp sites, full bath house, pavilion and more. Bordered on three sides by the South Fork of the Potomac River, it's riparian setting is good for relaxing, fishing or whatever you want to do. It's also only five miles away from downtown Romney, WV and very close to the huge Romney Cycles.

Fees:
• Pre-Registration - $95 (up to July 5)
• Registration - $110 (after July 5)
• Pre-Reg w/Basic or Adv Training - $170.00
• Re w/ Basic or Adv Training - $185.00

More Vendors: Approximately double the vendors on site. This year we're looking to include Rev'it, Vee Rubber, MotoMachines, Green Chile, Continental, Dual Sport Armory, our friends at Crazy Fox Coffee and more to be announced.

Even More Door Prizes: Already at $9,000 at the time of this email, we're estimating over $10,000 of Door Prizes in 2015.

More Speakers: We're flyin' Sam Manicom in from the UK as and Bret Tkacs from Washington State to give talks on "Into Africa" and "Traveling South America."

More Food: This year we're working with "Gourmet Central" from nearby Romney, WV. They'll be cooking up a buffet breakfast and buffet pig roast dinner. Plenty of food for everyone! See the website for more delicious menu details. All other times, Social BBQ from Harrisonburg, VA will be providing lunch and dinner on Friday, and breakfast on Monday.

More Training: Returning from last year to run Basic training is Alain from Explor-Int. Advanced training will be run by Bret Tkacs from Puget Sound Safety Off-Road (PSSOR). Bret is the number one trainer at PSSOR with plenty of off-road and adventure travel experience. Both trainers will have access to a large field and routes for a quick afternoon ride. At only $75 dollars this is an outstanding training value!

More Rides: New routes, women's ride, more ride leaders, a Wilderness Poker Run and more! GPS tracks will be sent out earlier this year and be made available on the ADVMotoRally.com website.

More Music: Local Bluegrass band "Jake and the Burtones" will take us into the late evening with some live entertainment, plucky picking and melodious tunes.

Thanks Carl, that answered the question. When it said primitive camping I took that literally for the spots on the map. I was also afraid there would be families all around us in RVs

Thanks again
Scott.

There will likely be a couple long term renters there (can't rightly kick them out), but they won't allow weekend/families/etc. in during our event. Best thing we can do is get folks registered ASAP and let the campground owner know, "Hey we need alla dis!"

Overall though, the place is nicer with level campsite, lots of trees, multiple paths to ride around the camp area and, of course, some river side sites which should be really nice.

The following image is taken at approximatly site 101 on their map. River is on the other side of the trees.
