BOOH (Bat Out Of Helen) 2018

WOW!!! It's that time of year that the leaves begin changing and the mountains will be bringing out it's best. Yes........it's time for Bat Out Of Helen!! Riding dual sports.......eating German food......sitting around the campfire.......and more! If you haven't been to Helen, come check out the Bavarian countryside in the North GA Mountains! Great food and 'sights' in these mountains! GA and nearby NC/SC has some wonderful riding!

BOOH will be back at Cherokee Campground, in Sautee Nacoochee.......just a few minutes from Helen. We have the majority (if not all) of the tent sites availaible for our disposal. #7 is the site in the very back......and the one that many folks can use at one time. #2, 4, and 7 all have power/water.


Who: Anyone wanting some Dualsport action and German Cuisine!
What: Bat Out Of Helen
Where: Cherokee Campground Cherokee Campground
When: October 19-21 (Early bird is Thurs -18th)
Why: To Ride and Feast



ATTENDING..................WHEN................... STEED
shakeyjake18.............Fri-Sun?..................XR650L
cherokee_chuck.........Thur(pm)-Sun...........KLX650R


Planned Riding Schedule
Friday - We may have 2 groups going out this day. Plans are for a Hooligan ride at nearby Oakley and Beasley Knob OHV areas. An Adventure tour is planned as well for those looking for something a little less aggressive.
Saturday - Dean has a great ride going northeast to ride some new(ish) roads and also incorporating some known routes to make a nice loop! This ride is ADV bike friendly.
Sunday - There are many nice 'Dead End' roads that get overlooked in those mountains......I will be leading a ride that hits many of these! ADV friendly.


Multiple people per campsite.

Popete.....glad you are making it! We keep it simple.....just pitch your tent in the sites in the back of the campground. We will settle up the bill later. If you prefer staying in your trailer/vehicle, there is room for your vehicle as well.

BOOH Joining but not camping

Hey Cherokee_Chuck et al,

I live in Gainesville, GA and would like to join up for the rides. I wouldn't be camping - too much else going on - and likely could only do one day, either Saturday or Sunday - whichever looks best from a Ride perspective. Is that "acceptable"? -If so, what time and from where would the rides begin?

I just put Avon Trailwings on for the Winter (took off my Shinko's); so I'd be looking for the more relaxed ADV Rides...
Unfortunately, I don't get out enough lately to keep my skills up, so I end up more on asphalt than dirt in all honesty.

The ol' gal needs to get out and be ridden...

Thanks,
Stu

Klrzen I am on the north side of Gainesville off Thompson Bridge Road. You are welcome to come and ride any day during that time. We usually leave around 9-930. In my opinion, Saturday would be the best day to come and ride. Sunday's are short rides, usually doesn't last til around lunch and people start making their way home. We tailor rides to the skill level and what people are wanting to do. We usually have 2 groups going out. If I can help answer any more questions give me a shout

Does anyone know how the Helen area fared with hurricane Michael? We lucked out down here in Tallahassee FL, lots of rain & wind. Our power was out the past 6 days, just came on 5 hours ago. Ive been wondering if the BOOH is still a go? Thanks, PoPete
