I'll either have paid vacation days or be unemployed by then. I plan to make that a long weekend.

Got the good news, the band only has a local gig booked that weekend.
Bike is still in question. IF I get my cases back this week I can probably find the time to put the BSA back together in time. Otherwise, I might just show up on a Beemer. crazy

Car's almost fully packed. Only need to stop by the liquor store for some last-minute shopping.
I should be there tomorrow afternoon to help set up.
Looking forward to seeing all y'all.

Great day. It only rained for about 15 minutes right after I arrived. Gordon showed up just before 8 this morning, Greg and David Duke arrived around 10. We got the big shelter up at one site, all the comforts of home.
Drove out for bar-b-que at The Happy Hog and returned to the site for brews and conversation. Alex and his buddy showed up for a while. Great to see him again.
Show and shopping tomorrow. Then the real party begins. beerchug

Ridden Daily

Been a lot of Vincents in this class the last few years. Don't know if I'd be brave enough to ride something this valuable every day.

Been waiting for years, but a triple finally won Ridden Daily.

Looking past the swap meet, this is why we really come to this rally.
