Hi Kids,
Well, long story short..... .Patty and I are not spending the summer in the Tetons this year.
So............
On a lark, after receiving an inquiry from John O. of Stillwater Farm fame, I went online doubtful that I'd find the group site available because I'm so late in trying to make a reservation.
Well............ I SECURED THE GROUP SITE FOR JUNE 2 - 5!! That's Friday through Monday.
MTSFMCW is on! Ring in here. Let us all know what's happening with y'all and may we be seeing you early in June?
WoooHooooooooo!!! :)
Like y'all ....... impatiently awaiting spring.
Ride safe all.

Greetings,
Satch, Sherlock Holmes ain't got nuttin' on you!
Mohawk Trail State Forest Motorcycle Camping Weekend has been a yearly event for about 6 years now. It's a very informal get together at a group site at Mohawk Trail State Forest in Charlemont, Massachusetts. The forest is a very beautiful example of some old growth white pines and is bordered on two sides by the Cold River and the Deerfield River. I ( Gary ) started it in 2010 or 11. That year we had four riders. Two years ago we had a group of about 20. See past postings here for comments and pics of past camp outs. Last year, my wife, Patty, and I spent most of the summer in Teton Valley, ID hanging wtih our son, Joe and family who live just over Teton Pass in Jackson, Wyoming, so the event wasn't held at Mohawk Trail. Instead another Stromtrooper Tankerplt ( Pete ) pinched hit at a camp ground in Vermont, bless his heart. Our plan was to repeat the Teton trip this year, only without the travel trailer and to get a rental. Seems almost ALL summer rentals are spoken for and the ones that are left are like $10,000 and up per month! I've been told by one valley resident that this area is ground zero for a total solar eclipse this year and rentals have been reserved for years! So..................MTSFMCW is back on! Y'all are invited. We usually cap at around 20 riders or so. Just gotta ring in your intentions here.
Highwayman, I'll be in your neck of the woods next week! My son lives off of Alta in North Vegas and I go out to visit several times a year. I often stay at his house. This year, though, I'll be staying in the cheap ass Circus Circus. lol I sometimes rent a bike for a ride out with him. He rides a Harley Fat Bob ( obviously not MY style ).
Ride safe all.

I had an absolutely wonderful time at the Peep Show the time I attended and will make every effort to make it this year. I'm kinda thinking that this is the year I should take a long ass extended motorcycle trip. I'd like to meander through Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, but I'm also pulled very strongly westward. A trip out west across Canada before re-entering the States west of Chicago sounds like a wonderful trip to me. We'll see. Patty's a wonderful wife. She just wishes me well and let's me take off without complaint any time I want!!
Eagerly awaiting spring.

Gary,
Most of us men married above our pay grade!
My friend Mike Barth (on a 1200RT) came to the Peep Show last year, and afterwards, rode up to Canada and had a great time. I believe he went to Nova Scotia and around that region.
