Or just ride through on Monday.
Your on the list!

Sounds like you got some long days in the saddle planned.

Hmmm, I have pretty much planned out my vacation days for the year, but if I can scrounge up a day, I might be in. I'm just in Loveland, CO so I could probably take off work early on Friday and be there Friday night. Then I'd only need Monday off. I'll let you know when it gets closer. Any good camp sites near the designated hotel?

There's more than a few guys booked at the RV Ranch. It's a very short walk from the Hotel that many are staying at.

Let me know and I'll get you on the list!

Darby,


Add me tentatively to your list. I just reserved the 14th room at the Best Western. Elissa told me that they are close to full for that weekend, so you might want to see if they will set aside more rooms. Should I have to back out, I'll be returning from Minnesota on August 21st, so I may be sick, tired or both. I will make that available to others if needed. I have until 4 PM on the 24th to cancel.


I hope to meet the group at Zax's in Moab on Friday on my way from Hanksville. Do you know where any are staying in Hanksville? I'll be coming from Mesquite trying to beat the heat. Hah!!

Gooddog (Clay) and I are staying at the Whispering Sands motel in Hanksville, UT (435) 542-3238 Thursday night. They have traditional rooms and a string of cabins on site. We stayed in a cabin last year which was done up really nice so we reserved one again this year. There is a good western style restaurant just down the road.

Okay, I chuckled, you got me.

I'm a past FJR owner and still have lotz of really close Feejer buddies. It's really a good overall S/T bike, and you just can't beat the price tag!

Glad to have you on board.

Did I miss anyone?
So I reckon I'll have ridden 8,500 miles from Houston by the long way round to Newfoundland and back to arrive at this outstanding event.

Do I have any competitors?

Show off, you'd think you retired recently and are making up for lost time. Actually I started out to this BBQ 6 years ago, when I retired, and have ridden over 100,000 miles and still have a couple months before arriving. Enjoy LocStoc and RockStoc my friend and I'll see you down the road somewhere.

Did not mean to brag, just wanted to raise a competitive flag! I still have to do the miles to NFLD and back!

Sorry we shall not see you at RockSTOC in two weeks. Look forward to seeing you at the BBQ!

This is almost to the point of name tags. I’m bad with names especially when there’s more than 5.
