WV TOR / Historical Markers Spring 2010 Get Together

Yokums Vacationland Campgrounds, Seneca Rocks, WV.

This is the camp site about half a mile from the Harper Store, not the Princess Snowbird Camp across from the store.

WHEN

June 4, 5, 6
RESCHEDULED DUE TO RAIN AND LACK OF INTESTINAL FORTITUDE


FOOD

The Porch Restaurant, a half mile or so up the road from the campground, says it will seat up to 40 inmates, and offer a menu of reasonable fare for under $10.00 a plate. They do handle set-ups. [BYOB].

SLEEPY TIME OPTIONS / LODGING


Motel rooms available from $45.00 / night, camping is $6.50 a head, and cabins start at 80 bucks. Beans, Bacon and Beer available on site. Owners suspect the campground will have a low occupancy due to the pre Labor Day date. There is a Pavilion at the campground, should the weather turn on us, and a large bonfire was given the go ahead. Tents may pitch in a group, not much for restrictions. Everything [motel, cabins, restaurant] is walking distance of the campfire.

ACTIVITIES / RIDES

Friday

Early Bird check in. Choice camp sites snatched up. Campsite duties assigned. Need not be present to be appointed.

Saturday

Dual Sport and Asphalt Rides
<<< EVENTS PENDING >>>

Sunday

National Radio Astronomy Observatory
Green Bank, WV

The Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope is the world's largest fully steerable radio telescope and the world's largest land-based movable structure.

May 22nd looks OK on my calendar (as of now).

Thanks, vatrader01. Looks like you've done a lot of research on this one getting lodging, camping, dining, etc. information. I'll put up a link over on the marker website so that all information and feedback is posted here.

Welcome aboard! You have some time to knock the "new" off before the get together....git out thar an' snatch the WV Tag!
Hopefully, in a while there will be some chatter among folks teaming up to make the trip. Sure like to see a good show of riders from your end of the state....but as you are kinda new, consider yerself warned..., they may be hard to keep up with. I suspect there may be a Hooligan or two in that bunch.....

Hi Andy-WV!

Welcome. Yer in good hands with pnoman guiding you with the photo stuff. I can barely answer and call out on my cell phone. I'm afraid I wouldn't be much help.
Please plug up some of the holes on the TOR map, knock the "new" off, and we'll save a place for ya by the far. [that's "fire" for you Yankee enunciating elitists. It ain't too soon to brush up on the local dialect and lingo ].

Hey Andy. Nice to see you here. Missed you the other w/e up in Canaan during Jason's FOJ. I went through Buckhannon on my way down to Rella's, but didn't have my Directory with me.

Mike will get you straight on posting the tag.

I think I can make this, assuming work doesn't interfere.

Looking forward to it.

Afternoon Riding Activity - (sort of)

Stopped at Yokum's Saturday and my wife and I took the horsie ride up to the top of Seneca Rocks. Cost is $35 each. Takes about 90 minutes round trip. Not bad. I've never been on a horse except as a young kid riding on the work horses at the farm a few times. They are pretty tame and just fall in line and plod along. (My horse was aptly named "whiskey" and I think he had a few before the trip - he was kind of pokey, but that's OK).

They have 3 rides each day - starting at 10, 1, and 4. Call for reservations, because they only have about 15 horses.
