18th Annual Mother's Day Camout - May 7-9

The "18th Annual Mother's Day Big Sioux Riders/Autobahn Camp Out" will be on May 7-9th in 2021. The Camp Out starts on Friday afternoon as in recent years. Everyone is welcome to stay and camp with us Friday and/or Saturday. We are going back to the (Fort) Randall Creek Recreation Area south dam near Pickstown, SD.

Friday dinner will be brats, Frump’s magic beans, chips and dessert. Saturday dinner will be Jack’s chili, cornbread, chips and desert at the camp ground. We will also cook breakfast Saturday morning if the weather cooperates. Free, hot coffee will be provided the whole weekend. Bring your own beverages. This is a low key gathering, Cost is $25 for one night or $30 for both nights people camping in our reserved spots which includes motorcycle/vehicle permit, firewood, and a space for your tent. Our goal is to break even. If you have an RV (with a spot), cabin or stay at the hotel, it's $10/night per person, but you have to get your own vehicle permit and camping spot/cabin. We have spots 25E and 27E reserved, put your tent up in those spots and on 26E if it is available.

If you are camping with us in the reserved spots, tell the park staff at the entrance you are with us and we will settle with them when they bring the fire wood. If you have an RV, cabin or hotel room, you will need to pay for your own spot and vehicle permit. If you are camping but forced to get vehicle permits at the gate, let us know and we will take that off your price. Please email me (flyer details) a few days ahead of time if you are coming.

This a good time for everyone to get out and get their tires warmed up. Friends and all riders of any kind are welcome. We'll post more details in the next few weeks.

  1. The 18th Annual BSR Spring Campout is this weekend.  We are camping below the Pickstown dam this year, hopefully out of the wind.  We have reserved our regular two spots (25E and 27E), but if the handicapped spot between our two spots is available (26E), then swap 26E with 27E.  We can't reserve 26E in advance until one of you actually becomes handicapped and gets a parking badge.  We are allowed to have up to 6 people camping on a spot.

    After 18 years, the one thing we all understand about this campout is that the weather can change quickly and it's often not predictable.  There was a year when the forecast was decent and we got snowed on, and there have been few years where the forecast looked pretty gloomy but we had terrific weekends.  If you plan to show up Saturday afternoon please call before you leave and let us know you are coming - brion.hase@gmail.com or 712-253-4650.  If you haven't RSVP'd us you are coming to the campout, it would be nice if you could.

    The campout officially starts on Friday and goes to Sunday.  The weather forecast isn't great, but Friday's weather looks good.  If "everyone" gets cold and wet and decides to leave Saturday afternoon, the Saturday night supper and Sunday breakfast cook outs may be canceled.

    Meals - Everything this year is to be cooked on fire pits or camp stoves with old school iron and percolating coffee pots.
    Friday Night - brats, Frump-n-Sleddog beans, chips, Marlene's "special" choc chip & nut cookies and other magical fruits.
    Saturday Morning - Cowboy Breakfast (hash browns, sausage, bacon, eggs, onions, peppers, cheese etc cooked in a dutch oven.
    Saturday Night - Chili, cornbread, chips and cobbler
    Sunday Morning - Biscuits and gravy

    The less taller Johnson has asked to let riders know that there will be a lunch stop at the Country Cafe on Highway 14 in Niobrara about noon on Friday.  

    Have a great ride.  See you all there and keep the rubber side down.
