RTE Ride To Eat Northwest TN Saturday April 7, 2018 See the Eagles
My suggestion for the winter doldrums is to put this SPRING RTE on your calendar and you’ll be part of the magic of wishing for better riding conditions in the new season, promise!
Ride Safe everyone and see you in West Tennessee, Tiptonville on Saturday April, 7th (First Saturday in April). I would like to be contacted CaptRehkopf@geemaildotcom so I’ll know how big a room to reserve?
Boyettte’s Restaurant in Tiptonville, TN, 11:00-2:00pm Saturday April 7, 2018.
This ride is scheduled at the same time as the Bald Eagles’ baby eaglets should be about two to three weeks old. The Ranger Station across the highway has had cameras on their nesting sites. So, if the Eagles cooperate and nest where the cameras are then you can see these magnificent birds close up. Additionally, the Ranger Station has other live examples of wildlife including two Bald Eagles that are injured and can’t hunt for themselves, so you’ll see Eagles regardless. http://www.reelfoot.com/eagles.htm
Boyette’s serves family style and is described below: Since 1921 Boyette’s has been one of west Tennessee’s top restaurants. People from all over a four state area make the drive every week to experience the true flavor of the south. Just make sure you’re hungry, because their specialty is serving up generous portions of Catfish, Country Ham, Fried Chicken and more. Put it together with some homemade hushpuppies, onion rings and country vegetables and it’s not just a meal it’s an experience. http://www.reelfoot.com/boyettes/index.htm

Local newspaper article indicated there are 50 pairs of nesting Eagles permanently around Reelfoot Lake! However, this year has brought another 100 plus pair to the lake, so hopefully there will be some exciting viewings
