Is it frowned upon if the kids and I come and set up and just stay one night or two and then leave. We would either bring a tipi or a tent just like yours in the pic
We have really struggled around here on the farm and I don't think I can get much time off
But I don't want to head over and then leave early and upset anyone
We have never been able to stay at a rondy yet
So I don't know all the secrets

Oh I don't think it would be frowned on. Things come up.  :shake

I can't imagine that being a problem, but I'm not the Booshway.  :bl th up :toast :*:

Jake,.... when you get to the Museum Of The Fur Trade, be sure to turn "SOUTH" on the road just'a bit east of the museum.
The reason I mention this, is because the compass-pitcher on the flyer is up-side-down (to those of us thet ain't never larned to read writin' reel gud, or who are use'ta seein' "north" placed at the top of a map).  :laffing :bl th up

I'll have a "cold one waitin' for'ya" if'n I get there before you do.  :hairy  :*:

I'll just add a note to Rondo's post above;

They do put out direction "arrow" markers pointing to the Rendezvous site which is (what would you say Rondo - 7 / 8 miles or so off the highway? (you'd think we'd know this after all these years....  :laffing )

Yeah,.... it's probably at least that far once you turn off the highway and onto the dirt road.  :bl th up

I sure hope it snows at this year's rondy,.... I'd love to ride down that hill, and into camp, on a sled.  :o :laffing :*: :toast :applaud

 :lol sign  Trust me Rondo, even if it only rains, you gotta a shot it!  :lol sign

I think it was back in '94 or '95 (It was a Friday night candle shoot - and I had to work Saturday morning) so Cindy said she'd drop me off and go back into Chadron and visit some friends and she'd come back out around midnight to pick me up... So,,, it started raining midway through that candle shoot and we had to call it off... I thought to myself that I better just get up to the road so Cindy wouldn't have to try and drive that Van we had back then down into the parking area on top (you know where I'm talking),,, so I started climbing that hill they call a road - and I damn neared got to the top and I slipped! I rode that slope all the way back down to the bottom on my butt - muddy as all get out! (I felt so damn stupid hoping no one had seen me sliding down that damn hill.  :laffing

Anyway,,, I finally made it out of there / forged the creek at the next hill (as you know going down - but I didn't slip, that didn't happen again until I started up the hill on the other side of the creek - then back down I went!  :Doh! :laffing  Somehow by the grace of the ol' Mighty, I got back up to the main road, soaking wet and muddy,,, and no Cindy, so I started walking towards town figuring she'd be along... :P

She finally did come along (slow of course as the main road was muddy also) and like a dummy I stood out in the middle of the road with these headlights slowly baring down on me and me waving her down with my rifle up in the air above my head,,, well she must of taken pitty on me 'cause she stopped (and I was just caked in mud,,, thank god she stopped  :bow ) and if I remember right, the first thing she said was, "You're all muddy!" Naturally I knew that.  :laffing

Anyway, I made it home that night and to work the next day, and I do have first hand knowledge that you can in fact, "slide" down that hill without snow,,, rain works just fine!  :bow :lol sign :laffing  :applaud :laffing :*:

If the weather cooperates, I expect the less adventurous folks at the rondy, will soon be takin' pitchers of 2 old men slidein' down the hill on a sled.

I'll steer,.... you hold the bottle!  :laffing  :o
