Who: Anyone wanting some Dualsport action!
What: Bat Out Of Helen
Where: Cherokee Campground http://www.cherokeerv.com/
When: October 17-19 (Early bird Thurs -16th)

We are are fortunate to get the 4 campsites designated for just tents!! I told the owner, Phillip, we may have between 10-15 riders ..... that will work out for him. We will just take care of the cost when we get there.....he is letting us have the 4 sights. So if you want to call him, just tell him that you are with the Bat Out Of Helen Dualsport Rally and wanted him to add you to the list.

These pics are from BOOH 2014. I didn't have my camera, so I stole pics from other riders............


From Phil....

Just a few random pics from the 2014 BooH ride.

The "Other Steves" flat tire. Luckily it happened prior to the beginning of the days ride. Lots of "on lookers" to help get the job done.


GaThumpers pre-ride pep talk before the assault on Tray Mt.

Short break.

Looking back....

....and ahead.

Hmm, left or right?

Where did we miss the turn off?

Joe Gurley

Jerry Atrick


That's all of the photos that I took.


Tray Mt. was so entertaining on Friday's ride that Joe Gurley, tube8520, Jerry Atrick, yotaman and myself decided to go enjoy it again on Saturday.

Just as much fun the second time. It did seem as though someone had came in overnight and rearranged the rocks. Seems some of the others were thinking that also.

From Brad...........

A nice day of riding at B.O.O.H. 14. I wasn’t able to camp so I rode he 65 mile commute
this morning. The weather was great, clear and sunny, 47 deg. when I left home and probably reached a high in the 70s during the day. We had 10 riders and when we rode it was a nice steady pace.


With the leaves starting to turn and the temps dropping a bit, fall is in the air here in N.E.
Georgia



When I FINALLY found the campground( humph1 GPS took me the LOOOOONG way round) the guys were all set up in a nice area.



We hadn’t seen Ga.Thumper or “the other Steve” at camp so a couple guys went out to look for them. On the way in Steve had a flat on his DR so everyone went that way.



After the flat was repaired we took off for the woods



Miles and miles of this








Keep Loving Rides!

We ended up here for lunch, it was really good! The place was tiny inside and between the customers already in there and us, it was packed.



The customers in this place were exceptionally friendly. Many smiled and nodded when we came in and most of them made comments like “y’all ride safe", "have a great ride” etc. as they left.

Here’s one of Chuck climbing out of one of the dead ends we found.

A short break and “where to next” session



At one of the larger water crossings,Chuck decided to take Ken up stream to the deeper water. Here’s where Ken decided he didn’t want to go any further and quit. :figwav:



Here’s Chuck trying to kick start Ken in the deep water…what a splash it made! :duel:





Here’s Chuck pushing Ken back to dry land, where he started without incident )




After that we headed out through some jeep trails and gravel roads.

With the recent rains, dust was not an issue and there were plenty of puddles. I had ridden with many of these guys but it had been a couple of years. All of them are fun to ride with and hang out with between the rides. Thanks everyone for the great ride and to Chuck and Ga Thumper for the tour
guiding. :beer:
