Excellent Dave.

You always sacrifice to come way north for these things. I really respect that (just like the time Hoot came all the way from Florida to Eureka Springs Arkansas, just outstanding).

You are not paid for what you do, but rather for what you will do and when that time comes, you will be highly underpaid.

First time I've logged into the forum for a while.  Been meaning to just to see if/when MOOT MaG will be.  As it stands right now I plan on being there.

Good deal.

Always fun having you along.

I have had my eye on this for awhile, but have been unable to commit.  I had surgery to remove a tumor from my left kidney on 4/17.  I am home doing well and plan on returning to work this week.  Assuming my recovery progresses as it should, I will be ready to ride well before June 3.

Anybody still have a bunk available?  I probably won't be able to arrive until June 4.

To whom should I send some prize or raffle goodies this year? I was thinking a chain guard, brakestay, and peg extenders.

Here, gentlemen is a true supporter.  Dobie did not wait to be asked...

My vote would be Smoked U, who seems to be the de-facto leader this year.  Dave, suppose you send Dobie a PM with your address?

Ditto to the addy... I think I still have it.  I have a er... leftover Christmas gift that didn't get gifted that I think someone might appreciate.
At least, if I'd had it *last* year there might have been less battery maintenance issues all 'round!!!

Sadly I can't make the MOOTMaG-I'll be elsewhere in the region on a week long charity ride-but for all the help I've had from other MOOTsters over the years it's definitely my turn to Pay It Forward :-)

You can send them to me again this year.

Email me and I will send my shipping address.

I just took my group DRNT to Mena this past weekend and stayed at the Mena Mountaintop Cabins.

I have some points I want to pass on to all of you that will be staying or visiting that location.

The location is 6.2 miles north of Hatfield Arkansas. There is a sign at the driveway, but it is easy to miss.

The driveway has a very sharp switchback to the right and climbs an incline over 30 degrees. You need to get into first gear at the bottom of the drive and be committed. There is no stopping on this slope unless you want to fall.

The drive continues up the mountainside and the only flat spot is all the way up to the top of the drive past the office and the cabins. Head for that parking lot and walk back down to the office. You can survey the property at that time and figure out where you want to park. My group opted to remain at the top of the property in the parking lot and hike up and down the hill.

The cabins are very new and very clean. I slept in the single top bunk like a rock and felt good every morning I got up.

There was not a large community grill, so we used the individual grills located in front of every cabin.

The staff does not automatically clean your cabin every day. If you want this done you need to tell them and it will happen on a daily basis.

The property is a short ride south of Mena so food and gas are close.

Geneva, the property manager, is a sweetheart and is looking forward to our group's visit.

Here are a few pictures of the driveway and slopes.

I am really up in the air on this one.  I won't know if I can make until the time gets closer.  I will try to keep you all posted.
