Oh man, that long line was great, made a neat video too.



You have to admit, that long line of Urals was magnificent..

That large group is why it is called a group ride, you know, shared experience thing. Everyone leaving at once would work, if they stayed in groups with at least one person knowing route and destination! Might even be more fun to have several groups leave at once taking different routes. Locals will think it an invasion or something... Regardless, you know what is going to happen, everyone will arrive at the same location at some point all at the same time and your plan for order will be dashed... You know some of us are very (hell, they wouldn't even let me join.) non-military and do not follow instructions well... :foilhead: Yes, I speak from experience, tried that a few years ago at our rally when we were at TWO and had really large turn outs, and still lost money, but I digress. Folks left in 15 minute increments and all ended up eating lunch at the same place at the same time, and rode out together...

You in a hurry whilst on vacation? Oh, that's right, you don't vacation anymore, you are retired...always on vacation, so slow down a little...enjoy the group ride, just convince someone else to lead it. Has worked for me at our rally for years...oops, may have given away too much...

and here is the ride from Delk's (where we all spent a LOT of time looking about) to that lunch you spoke of:



absolutely dysfunctionally wonderful! Regardless, the more the merrier! Come on out and enjoy the insanity, and who knows, might get to see Lori "bust Bills chops again" (Gobium's words, not mine, but funny regardless) with yet another well timed comment!

Point taken. We are working on a group ride which will satisfy everyone. 4 Paws has weighed in so I think we are good.

Cool. Have been running a rally for about 15 years now (GROPE, aka Howdy Summer Sidecar Rally). Folks, most of you just don't know what Bill stepped in to (well, John R and the folks who run the other rallies do). The amount of work needed to make one of these work is daunting. Thank you Bill, Lori and all the rest for doing this.

So sorry to deprive you James, et al., but I'm not involved this year. It's all Bill and his crew. Lori

Looks like my travel schedule may be changing for the worse. More to follow in two weeks. [emoji58]

Sorry you might miss the rally, but even if you come into town at a later date come on by the house for a barbecue and a few cold one's. Would be good to catch up on old news with you.

Bill,

Hope you and Lori are well. I"m still kicking in Southern Pines. I've been traveling a lot for work the last year and this will be the second CRAP in a row that I may miss.
I've been lurking here for a while. I have a TDY MTT that weekend... whole month. I'm still hoping it gets canceled (funding). If it does I'll be a single. Does not look good at this point however.

Cheers,

Al

Won't be able to make it again this year. On the hook for Pender Spring Fest and it's Rowan's 6th birthday. Mostly Spring Fest is the killer. Was hoping to bring the Lada or LuAZ. Miss everyone.

They can be some what hard to reach on the telephone. You can also go to their web site and leave them an email message. I am going to call them today about other issues, but I will remind them. Is tent camping an option? We have plenty of tent space. If you need to borrow a tent and a couple of air matresses, I have got them.
