Yes this is the spring event. We thought we would mix it up this year with a distandation event. We want to do something on the western side of Texas to reach out to those riders and get to know them.

I'm marking my calendar. While there, consider White Sands National Monument and Lincoln, NM (home of Billy the Kid's Escape from the Lincoln County Courthouse). Both are worth seeing. Ruidoso region also has great terrain.

OK, here are some details as what to expect in Timberon:

Primary Spring TURD Rally Dates are Thurs-Sat, June 5th-7th, but some folks are already planning on extra days before/after.

Temperatures in early June average ±75* daytime highs to ±50* overnight lows -- subject to change, of course. :roll:

Timberon, Elevation ±7100 feet, is 30 miles south of Cloudcroft at the end of the paved road at the Southern end of the Sacramento Mountains in the Lincoln National Forest. If you prefer paved road travel, you have to travel back up to Cloudcroft to descend the mountains to the East, West or North. However, if you prefer exploring unpaved county/forest roads, and maybe even some 2-track depending on road conditions, opportunities abound in the area -- with great scenery I am told. :moto:

But Beware: Timberon is a off the beaten path:
There is no cell phone service, nor antennae TV reception. :foilhead:
There is one small convenience store with regular gas +diesel and a few supplies (not a full grocery store).
Aurora has a small cafe on-site and may be available for breakfast Tues/Wed/Thurs - we may have to help cook/clean. :thumbsup:
There is a small deli in town for sandwiches for lunch thru late afternoon.
There is a small sports bar/cafe open lunch-dinner with burgers/beer, etc.

Due to persistent drought conditions throughout the region, open campfires are not permitted -- unless Timberon has a very wet winter.

Rally central is the Riverside Condo's run by fellow sidecarists George & Aurora**: http://www.timberon.info/mountain/lodging/condos/ with special pricing for TURD's staying 3+nights
and the Circle Cross RV Park 1/4 mile up the road: http://www.timberon.info/mountain/rv-pa ... s-rv-park/
There are other lodging options in the area, varying from efficiency apartments to grand lodges.

For Tent Camping Info -- See page 3 of this thread

Please contact Aurora at 575-987-2372, 575-987-2372 or gcorder@dellcity.com for camping/rv/lodging info & reservations.

** George & Aurora -- from Caddo Lake October 2012 :cheers: :
