    Fee for Camping? Fee for Rally?

    I was wondering what fee's may be associated with the rally. Like entrance fees or camping fees on site. This will be my first national rally and I wasn't sure if I should make camping reservations or if there is a entry form to mail in with fees. Or is everything covered with my member dues??

    I will be coming from Virgina and when I get back home it should be a loop that will be over 5000 miles worth of riding and I wan't to be prepaired.

    Thanks for the info.

    For members and their guests one fee covers camping, booklet, admission, swag drawings and contact with a cast of characters to be found nowhere else.

    Later, usually around April you will be able to register on line.

    Here's a link to the FAQ's for the 2007 rally - http://www.bmwmoa.org/rally/rally07/faq.htm . Although some details will change, most are the same from one National to the next.

    If you want to be prepared for camping, be sure to bring earplugs - there might be a few (!) people who snore.

    I went to the Finger Lake Rally last year and I definatly was happy to have a set of earplugs. I won't forget them this time either. But my wife will be bringing hers as well. She didn't have any at the finger lakes...

    Moonbeemer, There is an area of the camp site usually identified as "quite camping" , in case you are interested.... ear plugs may not be needed in that area , but you never know....

    Always bring earplugs. Put some in your toiletries kit - more than one pair. People snore, zippers zip, portapottie doors squawk, people toot - a real night symphony

    There is no such thing as quiet camping. It just depends on what time of night it is noisy. If you are anywhere near where the night owls sit and party to the wee hours it is not quiet in the wee hours; and if you are over in the quiet zone, then the pot banging, bike starting, stove filling, coffee conversations start just about a half hour after the other zone got quiet. We have camped at both. Ear plugs can help at either. Not complaining at all - that's a rally - but I wouldn't you to get caught of guard without ear plugs.

    As Paul said ...

    I've been to a few Nationals now, and Regional rallies galore, and there is no such thing as "quiet camping area". Truth is there are quieter, not so quiet, and "Party All Night" areas.

    It will be interesting to be at a Nartional with my Rig as it has double insulation, AC, and all the comforts of Home .... Oh wait ... it is My Home LOL. This will be the first National that I will not be sleeping on the ground ... Hmmmmmmm?

    And as for riding in WY ... if you miss Shell Canyon/Beartooth/Red Lodge/ Chief Joseph Hwy then you really missed it.
    If you are tired of riding, go to Cody and visit the musuem ... best in the West

    It would be really cool if you or I or someone put up links to the 'do not miss places' like you mentioned above. At least then it's all tidy and neat in one thread.

    I suspect that will be worked by the rally committee and then posted on the MOA web page. Stay tuned . . .

    awesome. I didn't pay too much attention last year as I wasn't go and had only just joined. I can't wait for the info to start rolling in.

    Using earplugs tends to make you forget just how loud your own farts are! Throw a few thousand people camping closely together and you have a real sensory tour de force.

    Or, you can look at ( 08 Rally Roads ) that I started in October! See if you see these places and much more in that thread. Add to it if you like, that was the idea for members to add roads and places to see. Good luck, See you all in Gillette. I'm already there. Richard
