actually, I don't think it really matters where you sleep.....like I said before, we can all hang out at cabin #4

If I remember right, this cabin is pretty deserted, by that I mean, there is not a whole lot to worry about as far as people being around us.....The only thing we'll have to watch out for is our noise level.....Newton Hills is kind of a stickler on "the book" if we're making noise after "quiet time" :roll: they might come and tell everyone they have to go back to their camp sites, Not sure though, I haven't partied out there for a few years, they might have pulled the sticks out of their :cus: :mrgreen: ?!

About the cooler.....if you don't want to haul a big cooler on your bike.....my wife will be driving our van, we have two big coolers we can bring, and could even get a third......we could keep 2 full of beverages and one for food? As far as everything we need....it's about a 10-15 min ride to Canton for Ice, Beer/Drinks, and food......we can make a trip or two if we need to, no worries!

Probably interested in coming out for the day to ride. Any idea on route or the miles on the ride on Saturday? Can I bring a Harley friend with too?

Nice way to meet the people from the area and the forum!!!

Yeah, come on out, bring a friend! as far as thr route, I'm still throwing that together.....more than likely it will be kind of made up as we go, but there will be some idea of where were going. As far as milage....sorry, I think we'll just ride until we decide to head back to the camp site....I don't think it will be to much of a "ball buster" but we'll just have to wait & see?! :twisted:

Just to let the "non-campers" know, we will be meeting at Newton Hills, Cabin #4 at noon. Since it would be kind of pointless to pay to get in just to meet up with everyone.....you will be able to buy that day pass when you get there, hold on to that, and after the ride, come back to the camp ground for a beverage of choice and get to know everyone.

:!: OH YEAH! If you haven't done so already....please shoot me a PM if you plan on making the meet & Greet, even if it's just for the day :!:

Thank you!!

whatever route,you need to make sure to include the back way from Alcester down to Hawarden IA,,,that road is twisty all the way....It's my favorite around here(since they closed off Career Ave to build a school!!!!)

Jason,I went to Sioux City today and came back up thru Loess Hills Scenic Parkway.If we ride some of that,it is scenic and the back way from Alcester to Hawarden is still a good road(not NEAR as much fun in a truck!!)I will map out a couple more for the ride.

Jason,I went and rode the route today.It is 115 miles from my house in Tea,back to my house in Tea!I went from here,down to Canton and turned on Hiway 11 headed south to Alcester.This stretch was long and boring.I'm going to see if there is a better route.Then Alcester over to Hawarden back to Hudson(which has 2 places for a snack and beverage)back up into Canton going thru Newton Hills.The part where we will hit Alcester all the way to the end was pretty good riding.Maybe we can get together and ride the route and see what you think.

Lets do it man.....if the weather is alright on Sat afternoon, would that work for you? You figure 115 from tea back to tea would put us at about........85 miles or so? I think that sounds about right. If anyone feels like riding more after we get back, that's cool too, we can just fly by the seat of our pants at that point......besides, we'll have some grilling to do once we get back! Let me know when you want to ride, I'm off work most days by 3:00....once I get home and changed you can figure 3:45ish?

Hey everyone! Just got back into riding after a 15 year "vacation" raising some kids.

Good luck getting the m/g going - we should start a SD chapter - I was really surprised there isn't one! If you need help with web stuff let me know... it's what I do!

I would certainly be there for the ride... but I'll be in Okoboji that weekend. THAT would be a great little run sometime, too.

Here is one that I and the wife will be riding in at the end of the month...
