USA - We will gather Friday between 2:30 PM and 5:30 PM, on the grounds of the Adirondack Camping Village, www.adirondackcampingvillage.com to kick tires, share stories, take pictures, ask questions, see and be seen, etc. All sidecars and future sidecarists are welcome, new, antique, high performance, home built, one off. Door prizes and surprises. On Thursday June 4th, there will be a leisurely ride through the Adirondacks for all sidecars. We will leave from the Adirondack Camping Village parking lot at 9 AM. Come with a full tank of gas and an empty bladder. Visit the campground website for directions. For more information, contact Bruce 610-866-1611 or stephens.bruce.d@gmail.com .

June 6-7, 2009: Black Dog 2-Day AMA National Dualsport/Adventure Ride, Hood River, OR. Staged around Mt. Hood, Oregon. We love sidecars! More information and sign up forms can be found at: www.blackdogdualsport.com , or contact tawmn@blackdogdualsport.com .

June 12 – 14, 2009 - This years 3x3x?3 will have a different format. We will have no place to go. When we start out in the morning we will turn off on the first interesting road we see. We will go on this road until another interesting looking road appears. This will be repeated through out the whole weekend. We will some how return back to the Midway Motel in Viroqua, Wisconsin each evening.
Most of the roads we will be on will be either the lettered roads of SW Wisconsin or gravel roads. We will use numbered highways when it is the only road available. I’m guessing that we will travel 150 miles or less a day. I would not be surprised if our average moving speed was less then 40 miles per hour.

We tried this format last fall on Saturday of the ACTUrAL ride. It worked quite well. We managed to find food, fuel and restrooms in a timely manner when needed. Did we get lost and turned around several times? You bet. Did we see lots of great sights? You bet.

If this sound like something you might enjoy please join Nancy and myself on June 12, 13, and 14 in Viroqua, Wisconsin. We will be staying at the Midway Motel, phone 1-608-637-2929. This is a small mom and pop motel with some very unique rooms. It has a nice lawn where we can sit and talk in the evenings. If you want to stay there I would call real soon before they fill up. About a mile away is the Super 8 Motel, phone 1-608-637-3100. And if you are into camping the Sidie Hollow County Park is about three miles out of town. I have made no group arrangements so everybody is on their own. If you have any question you can e-mail me at: pape@prairieinet.net

June 12 – 14, 2009 - This years 3x3x?3 will have a different format. We will have no place to go. When we start out in the morning we will turn off on the first interesting road we see. We will go on this road until another interesting looking road appears. This will be repeated through out the whole weekend. We will some how return back to the Midway Motel in Viroqua, Wisconsin each evening.

Most of the roads we will be on will be either the lettered roads of SW Wisconsin or gravel roads. We will use numbered highways when it is the only road available. I’m guessing that we will travel 150 miles or less a day. I would not be surprised if our average moving speed was less then 40 miles per hour.

We tried this format last fall on Saturday of the ACTUrAL ride. It worked quite well. We managed to find food, fuel and restrooms in a timely manner when needed. Did we get lost and turned around several times? You bet. Did we see lots of great sights? You bet.

If this sound like something you might enjoy please join Nancy and myself on June 12, 13, and 14 in Viroqua, Wisconsin. We will be staying at the Midway Motel, phone 1-608-637-2929. This is a small mom and pop motel with some very unique rooms. It has a nice lawn where we can sit and talk in the evenings. If you want to stay there I would call real soon before they fill up. About a mile away is the Super 8 Motel, phone 1-608-637-3100. And if you are into camping the Sidie Hollow County Park is about three miles out of town. I have made no group arrangements so everybody is on their own. If you have any question you can e-mail me at: pape@prairieinet.net
