Probably a bit early for this, but winter is long and we need something to look forward to!

Not a bad idea to start the planning early - then most people can block off the dates. Of course, FnF again for the Spring Rally as always! As the date gets closer, I'll contact Gary & Michelle and set it all up.

A good way for me to be able to attend this Rally is to bring my Family.  Renting a Cabin.  So is the plan to Start on Thursday and end on Saturday this year?  I noticed last year it was Friday to Sunday.  Is there a good place for a PW50 to ride near by?  I'm guessing the FishNFry does not encourage little kids riding around.  I should let you know, the PW50 is not my ride, its for my kids.

about half show up on thursday.  most everyone is there by friday.  about half the folks ride on sunday and the other half leave sunday morning or before. 

you don't need to go very far to get to dirt roads.  a little farther to easier trails but within minutes for sure.

 :)I just reserved the TrailLite RV for my family (June 21st - 24th).  It's in the same area as everyone else plus it has a bathroom for the kids and my wife. 
Hopefully another biker friend will be coming with us.
Fish n Fry didn't know we were coming yet so I informally gave them notice.

An RV sounds like a good plan.  The FnF does have decent facilities, and the cabins aren't bad, but I'm sure the fam will appreciate your own space.   Looking forward to meeting you!
