Only if it has a camper trailer or toyhauler in it.

That is my solution, I am just not sure when it's going to happen.

Looks like I will be basking in the Sun on a Greek Island that weekend. I will be there in spirit though.

I have belonged to RA every couple years, but never to a national rally.

Question- are RA rallys a huge group of old Starbucks BMW/GS farts like the BMWMOA rallys?

Considering it's in October I'd say yes and no. Yes to old farts but no to the Starbucks crowd. The RA crowd is more Dunkin Donuts.

Maybe - but, some of those "farts" are pretty talented in the GS Giants stuff ...

I enjoyed it this past year.

If I'm not mistaken, The MOA rally in 2014 was around 5,500, the RA was 1,400. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

I haven't been since MOA in Johnson City. It sure seemed bigger probably since it was a logistics nightmare getting in and out compare to the RA in WV the following weekend.

Of course, it was also somewhere around 10K attendance.
Too crowded.

It was in the 7k range IIRC.

Vermont set the record at something like 9600.

The RA rally is a great time. I especially enjoyed the ones at Cannan Valley. It would be fantastic to see the RA come to the Northeast to a similar facility.
