Rich Mountain Rendezvous, Queen Wilhelmina State Park, Mena, Arkansas
The Rich Mountain Rendezvous started as “The Jailbreak in the Clouds” in 1999. Each year since then, more and more motorcyclists and friends have enjoyed a weekend in the mountains of Arkansas, riding, wrenching and supporting the volunteers of CASA of the Ouachita, generously donating money and items so abused and neglected children have an advocate in their corner. This year’s Rendezvous is dedicated to our dearest friend and founder of the rally, Steve Johnson.
