Hey guys and gals--here it is!
April 25,26 & 27th
Location: KLRmikes and Kaylrs -Whippoorwill Farm,St.Marys, WV
This is the second year for the Spring Fling in WV, a weekend of riding and commrad
erie. We have lots of space for tent camping and trees if you have a hammock.Most important thing you need to bring is a SMILE
and a "Have Fun Attitude"!!
--this day will consist of everyone getting here and settled(tents set up,etc). There is no time schedule here-whenever you get here is fine-someone will be here.There will be campfire and food that evening. I'll have drinking water,ice tea,lemonade and coffee. Food will be Kays famous chili, hotdogs and hamburgers that evening with all the extras.We are leaving BYOB up to you to bring. The evening will consist of getting your bike ready for the next day and BS and commraderie around the fire.
--we will have breakfast( sausage gravy and biscuits-OJ-milk-coffee-and some of Kay's homemade jellies.)
Following breakfast before the ride starts this year we are honored to have Holycaveman and his experience to put on a demonstration of log crossing techniques along with some creek crossings and other bike handling skills. Anyone that has ever ridden with Tom knows what a good teacher he is and we are never to OLD to learn!!!
Depending on time and how smooth things go there are 80 plus miles of two lane rural highways, gravel, unimproved and a small amount of jeep trails.
There will be two groups of riders -some doing the knarly stuff and some doing the less knarly.
--I will fix breakfast---gravy and biscuits again--with extras-that worked well last year and you animals didn't seem too picky.
What we will provide
----lots of camping space -- a couple of port-a johns---we have a beautiful creek that goes right by the pavilion where you will be camped that is full of bass,sunfish,etc. so if you want to bring a pole for some downtime -feel welcome.We will have coolers and ice-drinking water-ice tea.If any of you are diabetic-pm me and I'll work with that in mind-fixing food,unsweetened tea,etc.There is a large fire-ring at the pavilion and lots of firewood. There is a table at the pavilion and seating for around the fire.Mike has a pretty extensive tool selection if we need to tweek any bikes. Alternative activities for the evenings will be horseshoes,snipe hunting and cow tipping.
We may also provide whippoorwills in the evening ,running water and peeper frogs to listen to as you fall asleep.What more could ya ask for???
If you can't be here till saturday morning -let us know.
We had a wonderful turnout last year,great bunch of guys!!!
We plan on putting a limit on the number of attendees this year-trying to keep it around 35, so please be serious if you are responding to commit.
We need some confirmation on your part as to whether you can make it-so I can plan for food--last year I left a tip jar at the pavilion and that worked well to cover our costs and we didn't have to charge anything--we hope we can keep up the tradition.Any questions??-pm Kaylr or KLRmike
Will be posting a map on how to get here shortly.
There is also plenty of parking if anyone wants to trailer their bikes. The only thing that will cancel this is a LOT of rain. Lets keep our fingers crossed.
I have also included some pics of the roads we will be traveling.
