I just got a quart of maple syrup and tossed it in the trunk.
I may not be good, but I'm slow.

Their crystal ball got the wrong rally then. Didn't bring any syrup to CRAP. I think they aimed for your tent and missed.

So, the Willmington bunch, ide love to ride in with you but it looks like your North bound and my West bound would be a meet up almost to the site. So, Ill see you at D6.... thanks.
Should I pack the 10x10 pop up shelter for sitting under or a class? Chad had mentioned it, but I didn't see a for sure answer.
See you all there! Got my count down calendar checked.....

INTERVIEWS ----

OK, we plan to be at the Rally and I thought with the bashing Ural has taken lately it would be a good idea to create some good press in the way of YouTube videos. We are going to bring our camera gear and would ask anyone willing to be interviewed to let us know.

Potential Interview Questions:
What rig do you have (year, model)?
Why did you buy a Ural?
How long have you ridden a Ural?
What is your favorite thing about riding a Ural?
What is your longest adventure in mileage?
What was your scariest moment while riding?
Tell me about your favorite UDF?
What advice would you give someone looking at buying a Ural?

Feel free to suggest other questions.
The goal is to give an honest account of Ural ownership, flaws and all, and think about the answers YOU would have like to have heard before you bought your Ural.

Other questions I'm considering...
What would you say about the reliability of Urals in general?
Would you say the adventure aspects Ural advertises are accurate or exaggerated?

Maybe we'll get a few takers and can have some fun.

This pop up is new. I didn't own it back during CRAP. Had a 10 x 10 back then. Always good to own a pop up shelter! I find them very useful a few times a year!

We have delayed one day and will leave Monday, not Sunday due to weather, Thanks Nate. All of the forecasts call for 20Mph+ winds (gusts could reach 35) on Sunday along our route. Rain I'll deal with, wind... nahh, Monday looks to me 5mph or less with just rain. Given that, we'll also stay up there an extra day... maybe two, heck, might stay the whole second week, I don't know.

The weather report I looked at this morning was better.

Getting my van inspected and then picking up groceries. I'll have coffee, cups and fixins. Also getting potatoes and onions for the griddle Saturday morning. My griddle isn't as cool as Tuba Ricks, but its pretty good. I can make a mess of hashbrowns on it. I'll look for some meat throw in and it'll augment the pancakes and stuff well. We're gonna be there a day early. Thursday evening arrival. See you guys soon!
