So 2017 ...

I still cannot believe that I had to miss 2016 great even Sarah and Clay hosted ... TOTAL BUMMER...

But, with vacation request etc and budgets and spreadsheets to be created ...




When and where??

Volunteers? Else we could always just pick a spot and internet research ...

Just thoughts and suggestions at this point but nothing set in stone....

However, 2018 is all set for the 115th.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif)

If everyone is on board, I'm hosting 2018 to coincide with the 115th. I've got a spot all dialed in with great riding opportunities starting at the end of the driveway (I guess that's where ALL rides start). Within minutes of the Fox and Hounds restaurant we all had lunch at in 13'. I heard Colorado has a bunch of safe riding available (IMG:style_emoticons/default/doobie.gif)

I know you and Bruce weren't there for the rally; but considering how Bruce's health and mobility were looking at the time of our rally, we all agreed that 2017 should be done at HST central HQ and the TT was an attractive sideshow for the event. We were under the impression you'd happily host next.

PS: Since Sara and I are taking a family trip to Iceland in April, we won't have the vacation or bankroll for an extended rally outing...So if the plan is anything further from home, we likely won't make it.

Dot and I are in a similar scenario. We already have requested off the week after Peoria for Larryfest and have already bought tickets($120 each). While we'll try to make it for a day or maybe overnight, We won't know until the time comes. Since Larryfest sells out by February, we had to get tickets early before we heard the exact dates of the HST rally. We'll keep our fingers crossed......... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/banghead.gif)

That would be our my plan.....

Not confirming attendance as of yet....

I've got a lot on my plate and as much as I'd love to make this trip it's just going to depend on how much of our on going remodel I can get wrapped up....

Of course I could always say fuck it but that's how I've managed to drag it out this far.... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)

Edit: With that said A BIG THANK YOU to Bruce and T for taking this on I'm glad that we have a date and time in stone and plans on the horizon....

Now, I have more Mota vation... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)

How about Tuesday night in New Orleans. Wednesday morning head north on the Great River Road, Wednesday night wherever. Thursday morning keep heading north, take a right at HST Central HQ. Roll in Friday morning, or Thursday night, if our early arrival wouldn't be a problem. Just spit balling at this point.

Thanks Bruce. At this point everything is speculation, but if we do roll in Thursday, you know you and T can count on us to help out (emptying the cooler 😎). I'll jump out and go ahead and claim a spot with the "shed peeps"💤
