Faunsdale Fall 2012 Rally dates
« on: May 28, 2012, 09:43:20 PM »
Faunsdale Fall 2012 Bike Rally is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 4th thru Sunday, Oct. 7th, 2012.  Anybody planning to go?  8)
I'll be there straight across the field from the main stage between the showers and the River City Bike Assoc. camp.

Gonna bump this thread since the rally is coming up in about 5 weeks.  If you've never been, it's a laid-back, anything-goes type experience.  Lots of food, beer, music, games, and riding.  Heavily policed but the cops are cool about it.  I usually camp with my dad and his friends at the triangle in the map below.  Who's gonna try to make it?  Should we have our own BamaRides campsite?

Not really my crowd either, I guess, but I go to spend time with my dad, watch people do stoopid stuff, and take pictures.  Oh, and drink beer and sleep in a field.  And eat too much red meat.  Maybe tell a few lies.  And ride.  At the end of the weekend, I'm exhausted, usually.

Everyone that rides two wheels needs to go to Faunsdale - at least once, so you can say you did.  You may like it, you may not.  My 1st time I liked it.  If I would have brought a tent, I could have stayed the whole weekend, and had a blast.

So take a tent, just in case.  Relax, and enjoy what it is - a bunch of rednecks turning loose in a field.   excited

You may see a few things you have never seen before.  You WILL see a few things you wish you had not.  If you stay the weekend, you will always remember it.

Yea thats kinda the part I'm worried about, but I'm gonna try to make thunder beach this year as well, so faunsdale would be a good precursor for it
