Tarheel Travelers Halloween Campout.

Not strictly a sidecar event, but always great fun, very family oriented. Friday weather was rain, so attendence was way down. Only about 50 people compared to 150 last year.

camp site


field events

Jody (the wife) and I were second in the dice toss.

I was disqualified from the slow race Big Grin

What you can't see in the picture is all the mud packed into the bottom of the fairing from the entrance "road" to the campsite. The solo bikes had an exciting ride in.

Since there were so few entries, pretty much anything was allowed in the dic toss, including the campground's zero turn radius lawn mower, a couple golf carts, a car and Jake (number two son) in his wheel chair, with Cody (number one son) pushing.



there was a small bug problem at the site


(actually a Halloween decoration contest)

our site again


Child and adult costume contest and trick or treating



All in all a great time.

Where was that, could not have been around here, the weather is too nice.
The season is pretty much over now, for me anyway.
