Hate I missed the rally. Looks like fun was had by all!
Maybe next year?

Had a great time at the rally, haven't been since 2011. It was great to see Bill and Bill again. I'm sorry I didn't make the short trek up the hill to meet Keith, Jim and Harm W. Planned on it, but Saturday night I was (self) over-served.

Going to try to make it again next year, but stay for Saturday night next time.

The wife was completing the MSF course that Sunday, so maybe next year she'll make it down on her own two wheels. We took out the '99 S and R12C yesterday for a 5 mile loop through the neighborhood and quiet surface streets. She did very well, but going to take it nice and easy for a while.

I forgot about it... Are the leaves changing color yet? we have been in the 80s-90s and everything is still green here.

Still green here in St. Louis too. Colors were already changing in Colorado a month ago. Hopefully the mid-west follows suit here soon.

Tentative trip planned that way. Should know for sure later in the week. You camp up on the hill or down in the quiet area?

I have only attending the rally once (2015), and that year I didn't see any Pelican's up on the hill when I got in on Friday evening. I may not come down until Saturday if it's going to be pouring rain and 47 degrees on Friday evening. I've got no preference on an area, so I'll just keep my eyes open for you. You bringing the S or the GS?

I threw in the towel as well. Ed went down Friday night so he could do the GS ride Saturday morning, said turnout was very low. Between that and the weather, decided to just stay warm and dry at home.

I really wanted to go to the event. The scenery is always nice up there.. Cold and wet are not as much fun now that I am getting old. I did manage to get close to 40 miles of mountain bike riding in this weekend though, so the weekend wasn't a loss.
