It is time once again for the infamous Memorial Day Fun Run on the Talimena Scenic Drive in southeastern Oklahoma. (Downhill Paradise!) The road is a scenic byway that runs along the top of the Kiamichi Mts for over 50 miles between Talihina, OK and Mena, AR. There is very little traffic to control and the pavement is super smooth. There are runs of all types represented from technical runs, to speed runs (80mph), and long runs (4miles). We always stay at a great campground at the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge on top of the mountain.
It is a great location with full facilities. We will also be renting a box truck to haul everybody and there equipment around in. I'm also working on getting as many video cameras on the hills as possible. After the long fun days of bombing the hills, we usually end them by sitting around the campfire, telling stories, and even watching DVD's. (Yes there is electricity at the campsites!) Typically, by the time we split up the campsite and truck expenses, this weekend only costs about $60 a person. You don't want to miss out on this! Oklahoma City and Tulsa are the 2 closest major airports to fly into. The drive is located about an hour south of I-40 between Mena, AR and Talihina, OK.
With very little going on with Streetluge in the US this year, this may be the one to go to.
