Just a reminder to get fuel on your way in since the nearest pumps are in the town of Madison...
Cell signals are week at best (unless you are on top of the mountains or about five miles down the road...so plan on being out of touch or using "voip" (we do have rather nice internet service now thanks to fiber...).

The folks at the Lodge really appreciate your telling them in advance (night before, morning of...) about meals that you want to eat in the dining room...they have switched things up a bit this year, partly due to Covid, and it really helps the cooks and wait staff if they have an idea of how many to expect.
Food offerings at the Syria store have been enhanced...

What a great event. I was down in the area with my trailer to grab some tires. On Saturday I stopped by the event and met Cabell and several of the participants of the event. They really put on a nice event. I look forward to next year maybe heading down with a truck and camp for the weekend.
Its a long ride from Buffalo but sure looks like it would be a bucket list event. Thank you all for the hospitality. I managed to buy some shirts a hat and some tools for my Deuce.

I've been collecting photos that have been posted by folks who attended from various places on the internet and have combined them into a collection on Flickr...linked to the event's webpage.

The direct link for those who wish to view them without having to visit multiple websites...

Many thanks to all who attended and helped make the event worth all the prep work..

A big shoutout to Guy for providing goodies that we gave away to folks who attended and that we used for prizes after the Saturday night supper, especially for the stove that was presented to Steve and Laura.

A huge shoutout to Steve, Laura, and Khloe for al they do year round in support of the event including organizing work weekends clearing trails as well as leading rides during the event and holding the truck games and providing prizes (and helping to keep my sane...).

A big thank you to the rest of the team at Graves Mountain, member of Rock Ridge Offroad, and my extended family for all the help and support during and before the event...

We are already planning for next year... same time, same location...

So, I think that I have made all the edits to the website that I can until we decide on a shirt design and I get a better html editor and fix a couple of background issues (the registration form claims to be from 2018, but when you view the PDF, it will be the correct one...).
The dates for 2021 are September 2-6, 2021.

The website is

While I was at it, I started a thread for this year's event...
