Less than a week to go now.

Meeting in the motel parking lot at 8:30 and then off to breakfast for a little meet and greet and some grub. From there we will meander on some forest roads a bit and see what the day brings.

Drove thru there on this weekend, it is next door to the Dollar Store just FYI!!

Hard to believe just 5 days from now. The 10 day forecast looks great, maybe even a bit hot in the high 80's to low 90's.

Might want to pack some swimming trunk and find a lake or river to jump in.

I'll be at the motel around 9 PM on Friday. Wayne and Mary will have arrived by late afternoon so look for them.

Have not heard of any drop outs from the list on my first post so it should be a good turn out. See everyone there!

Well the first Wisconsin National Forest Rally which has been rebadge as TOUR=This Old Ural Ride is in the books. Nimbus 4's wife, Candace is credited with this acronym.

We had 4 Urals ridden by four couples who kinda tolerated each other. Never could agree on anything except that Tim was the best at charging in the unknown and leaving poor Candace looking like a drowned rat. It really was a group that you would have thought had been riding together for years the way we all meshed. Lots of laughs and even a few break downs in the middle of nowhere, one muffler repair was done and we made it all of 15' when another bike went done with the identical thing! Flat tire from a sharp stone had us stranded until Mr. Shovel came to save the day. I'll let him tell you how he was just dying to dig a hole with his Gear Up toy. Someone got stuck in the muck in 2wd and need a few pushers. Lots of turn arounds as the trail ended, dead ends and on and on. Ill let others chime in and post some photos and videos.

Who was there: Brian and Nancy Olson, Tim and Candace, Wayne and Mary Groth and Me and the red headed monkey-Lenny.

Others that said they were coming were no shows, their loss...

It sound like I taught you well outrider. Finding dead ends and having flat tires. But you did miss the ride where Eric taught us how to pi$$ off Becky by going full bore through the mud puddle instead of around it.
We may not have it all together,
But, together we have it all.

What a great ride - even though both of my mufflers fell off - thanks to Nimbus4 it was no biggie. I have lots of GoPro stuff that I hope I can get posted if I can get some help with instructions on how to attached. And also, I don't know who Outrider was talking about that got stuck with 2WD even. Bummer. Can't wait for next year!

An amazing weekend in which I received an education in Uralology by some masters. Thanks again Outrider, Troykaboy and Nimbus4. You and your beautiful wives made for an experience I will never forget. I'm only just starting to go through my photos and videos and will have more to post soon.
