PostSubject: Road Trip   Mon Dec 03, 2007 11:42 am

Some of us are talking about taking a roadtrip and doing some riding at the end of the month. We're looking at Dec. 27th-Dec. 30th. It would be an extended weekend trip and could actually end up being 28th-30th. We are thinking either Berryman/Council Bluff area or Arkansas. Lots depends on weather. The area of Arkansas we are thinking about is the Womble/Quachita area. The Womble has a 26 mile trail and Quachita has numerous options. We're talking about either renting a cabin or motel and cramming it and sharing expense. Womble is very close to Hot Springs, Ark. Hot Springs has CedarGlade trail and new Vista Trail, more riding options. I'm throwing this out there to get some input and interest going.
The avg. temps for Hot Springs in Dec. is 54 high and 32 low. I just checked their weather at it's 20 degrees warmer down there right now and calling for highs in the 60's and 70's during the week.
This is a no brainer for me! The more interest, the better to make the trip cheaper. I'm not opposed to the Berryman area but for 2 more hours of driving, I get 20 degrees warmer weather and the Womble. Nothing to take away from the Berryman, but the Womble blows it away. The sooner I get some feedback, the quicker I can start shopping deals on cheap motels or cabin. Lyle and I are in for sure. You know you want to go!

OK, just got a contact and there is now three of us heading south and one other interested! This is going to be so fun and may be the start of a tradition.

This is morphing! It is now a real deal. The only way it won't happen is if we have some freak weather. I'm currently checking rates on cabins but we will probably look at the 10 day forecast and decide if we want to camp or stay inside. Cabins have showers and kitchenettes. More details soon!
