Will the Gillette kids be crapping in the swimming pools at the MOA rally, because if they are, well that's just wrong.

This thread is going down the toilet...
My only concern is the gasoline. I'll just change it every day (maybe twice). I just don't want any water contamination to build up in it. Keep these rumors coming. I don't want any lines or shortage of premium grade fuel.

"It has cleaner water than Gillette. "
I'm not even defending Gillette, it is what it is, a small WY town with the SAME problems as other small western towns. What I am defending (and sometimes ask myself why) is the rally.
The 08 rally could be set for anytown USA and it wouldn't matter. The rally is a place in your mind, married to a dot on the map where you go to experience the Nirvana of BMW motorcycle brother and sisterhood.
I defend, because I see half truths, inuendos, total outright fabrications tearing up, influencing people who otherwise would of come and experience what good Wyoming could offer; and Wyoming is a beautiful state, be it starting 30 miles out of Gillette, it's worth it, I know, I speak from living 40 plus years just catty corner from this exact spot!
If you speak, Big D, Officer Greenwald and other naysayers, speak in truths, in experiences, THAT ARE actual opinions. Half truths, and spin for sake of spin are nothing more than shouting "fire" in the crowded theatre of life. There is no fire here. If you speak true opinions, your not going to have any trouble with me.

To Big Delta: While I appreciate your support, no need to come to my 'defense.' While any criticism of Gillette is often shouted down by the 'Usual Suspects' on this web site, you may wish to distance yourself from me for now.
As for myself, worry not. Three decades in law enforcement has left me with skin that is not just thick-enough for this sort of knee-jerk indignation, it's 'bully-proof.'
Leave Gillette alone - the topic is sacred. Let us confine our concerns to oil changes or GPS mounts, lest a predictable eight or nine contributors (out of the over one thousand, eight hundred who viewed this original thread so far....something that makes you pause and go..Hmmm..) pounce on you.
Ride while the weather is good, enjoy life and shake off this brush fire of sarcasm - more important things await us, I'm sure.

get out your anonymous book and notice Du Quoin, Illinois was the rally site a few years ago.
Come on, the riding in S. Illinois, no matter how great I think it is, is nothing compared to Wyoming.
I used to post here, but now I don't.
