Northeast VStrom Adventure 2013 Anyone going?

Hi,
The Northeast VStrom Rally 2013 is in Willmington NY near Lake Placid this year. Sounds like an ideal location. Anyone going. I just booked a campsite so there should be sites avalible. I will be taking Friday off and Monday is the Civic holiday.
See link on my sig. line.

Art,

I know the area. It's great. I'll be camping and fishing with my other group the first weekend of June and again in mid-August (going on 18 years with that bunch) just the other side of Wilmington at the state camp ground. I suppose another run there for this get-together is do-able. I'll be considering it seriously over the next couple of days. Sounds like fun, and the roads thereabouts make for some nice riding.

Hi Art,

I have booked my spot about a month ago. I went down to last year's, we were 5 out of the Montreal area that met down there. I will be coming in from the other side from where you are so I'll see you down there.
It has been a while since Wilberforce in 2010.

Yeah, and it's a no-go for me. I've just decided to move back to Ottawa, on the 10th, and need to do some serious packing of junk into boxes by then. Maybe next year (I'll be that much closer too).

Have fun, and report back on the outing.
