Same time, circa 2017, which is the year my wife should be retiring and then we can both be there.

You all have a great time. Having been to two of these events I know you will! Nothing like it.

Sounds like you are arriving in Boise on Monday? Dan and I are going to ride together, but no firm plans yet, except to arrive on Tuesday. Plan to stay off the slab for the most part. Michele and Debbie are driving over and arriving on Tuesday as well.

Talking Re: When Are Folks Leaving For CCR?

Yep, we will arrive there Monday. Art & I decided to take our time and ride the less busy roads so we are parking in John Day Sunday night, then a leisurely ride into Boise Monday. Marilyn & Marcia are driving the Camry down to Boise on Monday to meet us at the hotel.

We'll be watching for you guys Tuesday with our cervezas in hand! Ride Safe!

Sounds like a plan - ride safe. Can one assume that you will have one cervezas in the other hand for someone just in off the hot road?

Due to recent surgery, I'll be coming on 4 wheels this year, leaving Monday morning and arriving Monday night (it's only 500 miles). Cheri and I will be staying at her dad's house (both of our families are from Boise), but will see y'all at the reception Tueday! Ride safely and stay cool!

We left Friday night but we're down on the CA coast grabbing the RCMC Grand Tour Checkpoints and will get into Boise on Tuesday afternoon. See you there Denny and John! It will be a hot one there, but it sure isn't here in foggy CA!

No sweat Brian! You want an LT, a GSA. pr a GT? I see there is even a GTL 1600 parked right next to our LT, so maybe he can swing down and pick you up? NOT!

Really sorry that you can't join us this year Brian. The BB hangout won't be the same without you!

Oh yeah, we're here! At least Art & I are. Marilyn & Marcia are coming down in the Camry since we were riding through pheasant country! They should be here soon.
