We're in! Wife wanted to be closer to the "facilities" so we're in the non-primitive side of the camping

Looking forward to meeting everyone

Cool! I am generally in the middle cabin. If family does not come up, I can "sublet" space to open minded people with a good sense of humor. Sleeps 6 and has a loft... As I am pres of the club, will be easy to find... will be on a sidecar, which one, dunno yet...

We have not done a lot of advertising this year. We lost our newsletter editor, the guy who got the word out and a generally all around good guy to a senseless accident caused by a distracted driver that took him and his rig out in February. Damned near killed his wife too, she will be in the hospital for months and years of rehab there after. Rally is going to be dedicated to him this year. Club is kinda gutted at the moment, but will be back to relative normal by June. Please, folks, if you are in the area, come by, even if just for a visit. Great group of people and its all about sidecars. Many closeted Ural owners in the group, help them come out by showing up on yours.

Unfortunately, we're not going to make it up there. Between the weather and
work issues.... :(


Hope everyone was their snorkel gear, it's saying 4-6 inches of rain this weekend
