Sept 24 thru Oct 2 Arkansas Ride

Finally got our schedules worked out, planning a ride up to, and around Arkansas backroads.

Anyone interested let me know!

Exact trip is still in planning, so may be shorter than that time frame, but will be at least 7 days.

I think we are leaning that way.. leave early Sat and drive straight thru, ride Sun thru Weds/Thurs and vacate for the rally-ers...

May end up staying in a couple different spots to open up more roads..

Another option on the table is stay in AR thru Tues or Weds, load up and drive over to Deals Gap and spend a couple more days...

you gonna spend a lot of time driving to get to that riding.

I'd spend all my time in Arkansas and make Deal's Gap a separate trip.

I can give you routes in northern Arkansas and southern Missouri that are as good or better than Deal's Gap area.

Sure PM the routes if you don't mind. My problem is the roads will be overrun by the potato guys end of the week which completely ruins the fun.

From central AR to the general Deals Gap area is 12 hrs or so, which ain't squat to me... and it will be hard to beat the gap area roads so we'll see....

We drove 16 hours straight thru to Deals Gap last year.. define "lot of time" LOL!!!
