Back for another year is Sloopy’s Revenge 2022: Rumspringa! presented by Modern Ohio Realty.
Last year’s moving rally was a huge success with great riding and even better camaraderie. However, the feedback received was that packing up your campsite every morning, riding 120+ miles and pitching camp again every day was a little much. Therefore, our title sponsor for the 2nd year in a row, Modern Ohio Realty, has offered up his family farm in north central Ohio for this event. This location is right in the heart of Ohio’s Amish community near Big Prairie, OH and we can’t wait!
We still have a lot of planning to do, but here is the rough draft so people can start making arrangements. This is a camping rally and the camping is PRIMITIVE! There is electric and water on the property in a centralized area, but we won’t have a bunch of extension cords and hoses running through the cow pastures. Please plan accordingly. We will likely have Porta-Pottys to handle restroom needs. That being said, if sleeping on the ground is not for you, there are campgrounds and hotels very close to the site for alternative accommodations. We will provide a start time and route each day. A ride will be led with gas stops, food stops and rest stops. Where you sleep and what you eat when we get done riding is on you. We don’t have a lot of post ride activities planned at the campground because we like to plan longer epic rides and use the evening to socialize and recover from the day. However, I am sure there will be plenty of entertainment knowing some of people who are already planning to come.
We will have a registration fee this year that will include a T-shirt and other goodies. Look for that coming soon.
Please be sure your bike can run 55mph as we will be running some state highways and want everyone to be safe.
Day 1 – Thursday, Aug 4th – We will head east through Millersburg and Tuscarawas County
Day 2 – Friday, Aug 5th – We will head to the southwest toward Mohican State Forest
Day 3 – Saturday, Aug 6th – Northward toward Akron and the Cuyahoga National Park
Day 4 – Sunday, Aug 7th – No formal ride planned this day but we would like to have a big sendoff breakfast before everyone packs up and leaves.
A few things we need to make the weekend more enjoyable:
- A shower setup (i.e. a portable inline propane water heater and shower tent)
- Fire Rings – safety first!
- Grill – non-electric
If you have and are willing to provide any of the things on the list, please reach out to the organizers.
If primitive camping is not your style, there are many other choices available. Look for Bed & Breakfasts, VRBO, Airbnb, Hotels and Campgrounds near Nashville, OH.
Campgrounds – Book early! If you haven’t tried to camp post COVID, know that reservations are hard to come by.
