Top O' The Rockies Rally

Anyone planning on attending the Top O' The Rockies Rally in Paonia, Colorado July 18-21?https://bmwmcc.org/top-o-the-rockies-rally/ I am. Darby? I know this is your busy work season but maybe you could ride over to the park one evening or I can meet you for breakfast at Starvin' Arvins in Delta.

Planning on Thursday arrival, on the RT though. Then on to Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, and Washington. Camping and wandering, looking for cool.

That's kind of what I tell folks that say they wish they were retired. "Yes but you've got to be old to do it"
I'll also be there Thursday. There are basically 3 streets that boarder the park area where the tent camping is. I usually park my bike along the one with the Porta Johns and then walk in a ways to pitch my tent. I have a green Solo Redverz tent and will be riding my K1600 (see picture)

I would love to however, I will be out of town that weekend...hopefully.

My annual varmint shoot with TR's has been rescheduled no less than 3 times this year due to poor weather. We are hoping this following weekend is the one that works out. If the weather turns bad on us again and I stay home, I will call and let you know.

Freedom is the miles I'm rollin' on!

Have fun shooting. Nothing like a little red mist in the early morning to ease the stresses of life.

A friend of mine used to say that he wished that he could retire when he was young and then go to work when he was old.

I used to say that too but now that I've been retired for 7 plus years I wouldn't want to go back to work.
