Fall Flog--November 12-13--Hale Mtn AL

Only 26 days left. What is the plan? Arrive Friday night, ride Saturday and Sunday, and head home Sunday night? This will be my first flog. Any night we do a potluck or anything? What's the scoop?

Let's start the list:


1. Dirk, Avery (5 years old), and Barrett (3 years old)


Here is the link to their website: http://www.halemountainohvpark.com/

ill be there both nights... they have a nice shower house built. i am also in touch with the owner who would grill for us if we let her know ahead of time....possibly for lunch on sat or something.... but the pot luck worked real well at the crawl.

4. PacificEd and Ollie (7 years old)

I'm game for a potluck meal and the owner preparing a meal for the group.

My goal would be to wheel Sat and Sun and head home Sunday night.

I'm gonna agree with Ed here...

...and with Matt, I too would like to wheel Friday possibly, depending on when we get down there.

Damn, I hate that it's in Bama this year...I'm only 8 weeks post op, and not likely up for camping... any reasonable hotels nearby that I might be able to talk the wife into?? If not, we may ride up on Sat for the day.

I started looking for a hotel also, just in case, since I have a 5 and 3 year old coming. The closest one that didn't have a review of "Great place for crack heads and whores" (yes, it said that on travelocity) was the Microtel in Huntsville about 12 miles from the park. It showing around $65 inclusive of tax per night for 2 queens. The hotel has an outdoor pool (which wouldn't do anyone any good in November) and continental breakfast. I think that Microtel is a Hyatt brand property.

From their website:

**PRICE - $10.00 per person per day. Children 10 and under free unless driving**


Hale Mountain currently offers free primitive camping with minimum 2 day gate fee as well as free parking for self contained campers with minimum 2 day gate fee.

Our free primitive campground is high atop Hale Mountain with plenty of shade trees and level ground to set up the perfect campsite.

That sounds like a good spot for a little adventure... I'll likely be bringing my 5 and 8 yr old.... we like a little adventure on the road!
