I still want to fit that other ride in sometime this year, maybe earlier in May or September??
It would have been a stretch for me, too. Let's shoot for a later departure. September should be easier for me more than early May.

Same question I was wondering. I am guessing we just show up and grab a plot of grass? Plan is to be camping Friday and Saturday night like a bunch of folks I recon. Looks like route 52, which passes a couple miles south of me, will take me darn near all the way to the campsite. I may be able to handle this navigational challenge. Maybe...

Wife usually isn't the problem, 93 year old mother inlaw, 85 year father, family farms, brother-sister, kids, dogs, work, meetings,, bankers, lawyers, estate planning (ie keeping it away from the users) garden, yard, wood cutting for winter, shooting, reloading, gun maintenance, vehicle maintenance, building maintenance, rental property's, funeral's, birthdays, weddings, theater (there!) racing, trials, working out, cleaning, prepping, tomahawk throwing, axe chopping and splitting, play with the dogs, teaching the kids the bidnez, stupid 65 year brother in law that is broke, Wardy, Layton, Link, Enduro's, Dool-Spurt's, Haar-scrabbles, TTC (this week end!!!) MotoJunkies, ADV, Professional Soldiers, Maintaining my mile long shooting range, going to Norway someday, Florida.
I have employees that schedule there whole year out like you do. Drives me nuts, how the hell can you plan what your'r going to do 6 months out or a year out?!!!
I'm thinking about putting a policy in, no vacation time or days off planned more then a week or two out.
Besides I make a plan out in the future, and the G_D's look down and say no way Smudger!!
Only having to worry about your vacations must be a tuff one, all I got to say.
I haven't even looked at when this ride is yet, to early to tell if I can go or not. I will know probably 1 week out at the most.
You guys SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any clue when the tracks will go up?

Anybody doing T-shirts this year? I missed out on that last year.
