Jena & I plan to arrive about lunchtime on Thursday, October 18th.

Good news:  The Shady Glade has completed the 1st phase of improvements to the pavilion -- an outdoor kitchen is planned but the budget may not permit completion by October:

The preliminary ... long range ... ??reliable?? ... forecast for the Uncertain?Rendezvous is generally:

 Lows of 45*-55* with Highs of 72*-80* with minimal chances of rain.

 A reminder to folks traveling in from the West:  The Caddo Lake area can have very heavy dew -- like sopping wet dew for the first a couple of hours in the morning.

 All are invited to join in on Saturday evening's adventure ride led by BeemerBob.   The ride will be ~36 miles round trip  to explore the most haunted road in Texas.  The ride includes up to 12 miles of dirt roads, but there is an alternative route to eliminate all but ~3 miles.   The preliminary weather indicates the dirt roads should be in good condition with minimal mud or dust.

 Ural rigs should feel right at home on this ride.   Cool  

 For the discussion leading up to this ride including pics, follow this link: http://www.twtex.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65497&highlight=haunte...

got home last night at about 10pm, after having a great time at the 2012 uncertain rally. saw old friends and made some new ones. went on the ladies lunch ride, which was great once we found a restraunt that was open! (ended up in Karnak and had a wonderful time.) made part of the group ride saturday; thanks to the Lions Club for the Domino Run, and the store in Jonetown was amazing, !had to leave from there and miss the rest of that ride to get back and go on the steamboat ride/tour(which was a hoot!!) the sidecar games that J.R. set up were great, much thanks to him and Avanell and to the others who made the games so much fun! this was my first uncertain rendezvous but it certanly won't be my last! i hope everyone makes it home safe and had as much fun as i did!
see you in april for the T.U.R.D. Rally.

Attended the Uncertain Rendezvous this past weekend ( Thurs - Sun ) --- had lots of fun and saw lots of great people and rigs. We left Sunday morning at 9 am but had to take wife on a secret mission to Shreveport first -- trip home started at 2 PM. Drove a total of about 350 miles, the most I have done in a day with a sidecar. Had no problems with the bike other than the radio display going out ( 2nd time) and the GPS screen kept flipping.

Cruised in 5th gear hoping milage would be better but I cannot remember the milage from the trip before -- so who knows -

Found out that stopping for a rest and gas at 100 - 110 miles is better than doing it at 140 to 160 miles.

Looking forward to the next time
