and Rob, you will probably want a moderately small + light tent for the Roaming Rally.. Like a 2-3 person tent well under 10 pounds.. You don't need some solo ultralight tent when you're on a bike in my opinion... The tent you hauled up for the Big Bike Adventure ride in MA last year was a beast!
That's not the same tent as the one I offered for sale. It's basically the same shape though. That one I had on the Berkshire Ride was a 6 person and the little one that I can sell is a 2 person. I'll figure something out. I'm looking forward to our trip a lot.

Our trip's going o be a blast. I'd like to get a fully loaded trial run in overnight in Pachaug when the weather warms up and you're all healed up.

Sure thing. I think we can plan for a Campout at the end of April, beginning of May. I'll have the luggage bags mounted and we can go find some interesting places to ride. I'm going to say either April 27/28 or May 4/5 (Cinco de Mayo) would be a good weekend. If you have the dates free, lets plan on April 27/28. I would be camping on Friday and Saturday nights, but I don't expect you to commit to Friday night.

Yes, we have a team of 4. Alcontrast, go2cnavy, Pfunk and myself. All but go2cnavy are making it a 10 day trip. We're camping on day 1 in upstate VT on 6/7 and returning from Ontario on 6/17. This will be the first time really living off my bike, as well as crossing the border.

This is the best team name I've ever seen.

Very cool. Take lots of pictures and post a report. That has always sounded like a great event. I know a guy who did it and he loves to talk about it.

Hey Mat, glad to see your still on this coast! How about beech pond parking lot, if the weather holds out? We would have to pick a time based on who wants to go.

I am here until the end of July... decided to stick around for a couple more months than I planned. Let's play it by ear for next weekend.

If we do ride, it might turn into a "trail cleaup ride" real quick. I would bet there are a lot of trees down.
