SwampFox, depending on Jane's ability to travel we may be attending the Uncertain?Rendezvous.  If she is able to travel by then we will be in the Lawton, OK area on the weekend prior to the Uncertain rally.  I haven't looked to see how far Caddo Lake is from Lawton, but since it is 'in the neighborhood' we'll likely come.

New Mexico will be there, Yeaaaah Baby!

'Looks like I have "kitchen pass" for this so planning to be there. I don't want any comments about towing the rig.  I'm rolling this in with a business trip. ;^)

Lee, thanks for organizing this fall rally. Everybody is getting itchy feet to get out and ride, meet up with other sidecarists. 

Marked my calendar, plan to be there.  Will see which rig wins the toss to be there. 

Was going to make reservation for a tent site. Found out they don’t have tent sites. Would like to be where everyone is going to be. What are the others doing that camp.

We have reservations at Caddo Lake State Park after being told there were no available RV sites a few weeks back.   Texas Parks and Wildlife recently started taking reservations that far in the future.  you can reserve online or by phone.

NOTE:  The planning for this event is an Uncertain and ongoing process which will likely be reviewed, and revised, multiple times, not only to accommodate many local closures, but also help make the Rendezvous as safe as practicable.  Taking into consideration the seriousness of the COVID-19 situation, please practice social distancing and good hygiene, washing your hands often, using hand sanitizer and wearing a mask if possible. 

The Uncertain?Rendezvous 2020 will be an informal gathering of sidecar enthusiasts and friends, as plans for organized meals, entertainment and destination rides have unraveled due to CV-19 closures and restrictions.  As of this posting, the only planned event is Saturday Evening Hot Dogs sponsored by Texas Sidecar Company with a side of beans by Jena.  We'll work out some additional rides and/or activities along the way.

Unfortunately, as we have discovered, the Shady Glade no longer offers overnight camping or RV spots, the result of a change in business plan ushered in by CV-19.  Below is an revised list of local lodging and camping options:

I plan to join in the fun too, hopefully I'll have the rebuilt sidecamper ready for its first long ride. Weather should be ideal at that time.
