ADV@LBL - November 8-10, Near Dover Tennessee

Once again, It's TIME!

What: ADV@LBL Fall 2013 edition
Where: Land Between The Lakes - Tennessee and Kentucky
When: November 8-10

Back in May, we did this: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=859995


This time around, we've got even less time for planning and prep, so it goes without saying, it'll be even more fun, right?

The plan - Ride LBL, moto-camp, engage in general jack-assary

...and so far, that's the whole plan!

BYOE - Bring Your Own EVERYTHING - And this means everything. We will be a little bit closer to food and groceries, but the plan is to ride in, camp, ride all weekend, and ride out, self contained.

Camping - Piney Campground inside LBL - I will be in contact with them to work out details to see about getting those of you not camping in through the front gate to join us each day, but I expect no problems with that. If you want to rough it somewhere else, stay in a motel, or ride in just for the day, you can hang with the group at the Base Camp.

Non Electric sites - $15 a night after reservation fees. I have reserved site #281, and others are grabbing sites close by. There are NOT any electric sites in this loop, but there are electric sites in the nearby Loblolly and Shortleaf loops. Water is NOT available at Piney sites after October 31st.

Piney campground is on Map 9 on the MVUM maps below. Here is a link to Google Maps as well.

This is NOT a formal event, we see it simply as an excuse to get together and ride more of an area that we enjoy.

Check out LBL.org for some information about the area, things to see and do, and for MVUM Maps to get an idea of the area we will be riding in! The MVUM is important, as it has all of the roads that are legal for us to ride on within LBL mapped out.

"Water is NOT available at Piney sites after October 31st."



I don't mind if I don't have water at my camp site but, will there be flush toilets & a hot shower available within walking distance of my camp site??? I'm willing to walk a long way for a hot shower.

The South end of LBL has non-ethanol gas just a short ride into Dover. Energy Lake was perfect for our needs, except for easy access to a non-ethanol gas station. Hopefully the weather prediction will be better than last time & we SMASH the attendance numbers we got in Spring.

Yes, the bathhouses and some of the spigots will still be functional. There is a chance that the water-sites will still have water past October 31, just depends on freezing temperatures.


I hope we get a bunch of peeps too, but if not, no worries! I think that there are at least 4-5 more people that haven't chimed in yet that I expect to see there!

That sounds LOVELY. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ooiUDXLw__g

I might need an electrical site so I can re-charge my Gopro. Are we going to pay for our sites through you guys or directly through the fine folks at Piney camp grounds? Last time, didn't you guys have something set up through paypal?

Last time Troy arranged to get us an entire loop and we payed him back directly. This time, it's "reserve your own", it was a little bit of a hassle before, and just simply don't know how many people are coming out.

That's fine, I kinda figured that paypal thing must have been a pain for someone. This one is a little "spur of the moment" & I don't mind any extra effort it takes to ride with that zaney bunch from last time, with all their wacky shenanigans.

You can have more than 1 person at a site. I have a spot if anyone wants to go in half or work out a "liquid" payment :)

Dang WS, you need to stock on some gopro batteries or get a portable charger pack.

Yeah, a few of us are doing the same. I don't think we will have much problem finding room for late comers.

IN! Shit I haven't ridden in ages...Job got to levels of insanity I never want to see again...BUT the month of November is going to be the opposite and I have a 4 day weekend on the 8th! Matt if you need help with anything let me know.

In the meantime, I am going to be riding LBL trails like crazy up until then because I haven't ridden in the dirt (or even on slab that much) in the past 2 months! What I saw yesterday is we just have to watch out for downed trees, there were quite a few on trails.....

Checking in.

Work is wide open for me, but inventory wraps up Friday and I'll get a chance to prep for the ride. I did reserve 282, and will only have 1 tent if the spaces become limited.

I'll be on the DR 650 this time, riding in packed. (not cheating with two bikes like last time)

Since Magic Mike will be there, do we need to plan on a run to Willow Pond?
