    I typically try to motel it at the National if I can be REAL close. Moodus was probably the best example of this. Hey! Let's go back there!!

    I'll camp if I have to, especially if the hotels are a long way away (Redmond), but if hotels are close (Durango), I like to shower without having to look at a bunch of other naked guys.

    YMMV, or course. I'm *really* looking forward to Charleston!

    I go where ever the Yankee Beemer Toy Box goes. Then I pitch my tent near by. It's like a family outing that 6000 other people happened to attend.

    There should still be rooms left in the area, but maybe the moderators could set up a forum , where the members here could post any extra reserved rooms that they may have available, or rooms that they may need to cancel if they can't go for whatever reasons. This way our members could have first chance at them.
    Just a thought.

    I think if folks have an extra room, it's easy enough to click "Start a New Thread" under the rally forum and title it "Have a Spare Room".

    Don't forget, it's your forum, and you can start threads whenever and, within reason, about whatever you'd like.

    Thanks for getting aboard, folks!

    Haven't decided yet. Suppose it'll depend on job situations ($$) - cuz I like to motel it, as well, for the same reason Dave mentioned. Yes, I do NOT want to look at hairy, naked guys.

    I'll be hotelling it, as I'm afraid my camping days are past. Interestingly, I just looked at the reservation form on the MOA site and saw that the Fairfield Inn where I'm staying shows a rate of $79. I made my own reservation a few months ago with an AARP discount for $53. Big difference!

    Hmm. Virginia license plate poll (6 spaces, max):

    Just plain DBG is already taken.
    DA DBG, THEDBG, MY DBG, LILDBG LT DBG, DBG LT?

    So, I went with BMWDBG. It should be here the last week in April.

    I had been thinking that it could also mean Damned Big Gut, but I ain't castin' no aspersions about the uh, somewhat less than svelte physiques of some of the members of the uh, touring, uh... hey, we *are* talking about Wing riders here, right?
