Then probably drone home on 41/45.

If the group gets too big, I'm hoping to break up into two parties. If we diddle around checking out side roads and whatnot too much on the way, we can have the flexibility to break up into smaller groups and/or bail for the beer trailer early according to individual whim.

You can't lead Morans, but you can certainly try.

You don't say. Interesting Roy, tell me more.

I would if I knew it would do any good.
Brad, some folks are coming from further away than Chicago. Not everybody is the world traveler you are, nor are they aware of how cold in can get in August up North.

We planned ahead last year and brought a fan for the tent as it was 90 degrees when we left So.Indiana.
Fan remains unused right beside the heating blanket we bought during the rally...
Heating blanket worked awesome on the air mattress btw.

When I asked OU812 if he was looking forward to CADVR, he seemed most enthusiastic.

That's something I really wouldn't look forward to.

Just a tickle over a mile of single track, ran it with my mountain bike. Jason was pissed because I kept catching up to his motorcycle with my pedal bike I had trouble on the hill climbs, nit enough traction.

Bonebag promised to start checking in here and put his house remodel on hold until rally completion.

Every night can be epic depending on what the attendees plan to do

The meal/band/dancing girls/raffle is the second weekend.

We can find room for Al tunas van.

I hope the deer flies and wood ticks settle a bit in the next few weeks.

Blueberries should be ripe by then too.

That's the heads-up I was implying. There's no point in me trying to plan in any more detail.

Too much planning leads to expectations. What you have going on sounds just right.

I think this is going to be a hot one and given the timing it's going to be pretty busy up there so everyone should be extra vigilant on the roads
