I park in the tent spots. Usually around 30% full. I'll sleep in the tent or in the Jeep. Cheap and about 150 ft from the bathrooms.

If the stars align.....and they should align. Been looking forward to meeting you for a good while, hopefully this is finally the time!

Looks like around 100 miles away, if some people want to make a day ride out of it.
DT.......you will like Suches........nice, improved campground/lodge of what it use to be 10-15 yrs ago. The new owners have poured a lot of $$$ into their establishment. They have camping cabins, primitive camping, and I believe rooms in the lodge. The food was good there back in April when I went (Vintage Bike Gathering). REALLY great riding roads in that area!!

Rally TShirts and Stickers...........

Buck83 (Justin) has stepped up to the plate again for 2019, and will be in charge of Rally Tshirt Design and Procuring........as well as the 2019 Rally Sticker. He did a great job last year on both, and will again do the "honors" this year. Shirt Cost is TBD......will depend on how many sign-up for one. The more shirts we order, the cheaper per shirt they become. See the attached "link" below on reserving your shirt this year:

After a month of being furloughed I have "unfortunately" been picked up at a new UP location and probably won't be getting any time off this year. With that said my wife and I both plan on riding to the 2020 Rally.

Last year a few were more than generous with the sticker donations. So this year I will use that and cover the remaining cost of stickers, so they will be free of charge.

I am not opposed to doing Rally shirts again this year. Typically they run in the $15 range depending on participation (the more people the cheaper). Since I most likely won't be attending those with PayPal can send their portion when we get a definitive number. Otherwise I will see about having Mark handle the funds at the rally.

Well damn Buck83, spring is cold and flu season dude.

It took some emailing back and forth with IH, but I got my confirmation back yesterday on my bed in the Bunkhouse across the creek from the lodge (the best one). I plan on coming down on Wednesday if weather is good and staying past the Rally for a trip up the Blueridge Parkway. This semi-retirement thing is working out well.

Weather here has been warm and no salt on roads. Racking up the miles this winter.
