    Nice try.

    Just kidding. It is a state secret. It will be announced at Gillette and most likely posted on this forum within 30 seconds of the announcement.

    I wonder who'll be sitting in the audience waiting to transmit? We have WAYYY too many geeks in this club.
    Bikeless for now...but not forever!

    Sad I'm Not Attending '08 Gillette

    Hi Gail, Hi Karol, thanks to all for replies.

    My "big trip" THIS year (usually limited to 8 days) is a 12-day trip from Marblehead, MA to St. John's, Newfoundland.
    I'm looking at 1,100 miles each way, plus 2 ferry rides each way totaling 13 hours on the water. I expect to log close to 4,000 miles including sight-seeing.
    When my late mother was born in Logy Bay there in 1927, the Dominion of Newfoundland was an independent country (1907-1934). She was the eldest of 6. Her 2 sisters in Logy Bay passed within 10 months of my mother's passing in 2006. I have not been to NL since one trip in 1966 at age 15 so I'm reconnecting with a dozen cousins and one uncle!

    Gail, I wish you and Lisa the BEST summer yet!! Stay well and Ride Safe!

    Mark

    PS: I'm happy to wait until July 17 to find out!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good question, we should have a "fastest modem" contest to see who will broadcast first.

    Nurse Nancy and I will be sailing in the North Channel of Lake Huron so we most likely will not be withing range. But you can bet that as soon as I can connect, I will.

    At least we know it will be in the SE.

    Is that a dare? To keep up with Gail, I would need a different bike.

    I'm like Mark. Very time constrained. Unless the rally is in the western half of the continent, my attendance is unlikely. I will, however be in Gillette. See y'all in 27 days.

    That is correct but like all secrets the location will probably leak out before Gillette just like last year. So stay tuned!

    Wasn't "leaked" last year. Was announced at the BOD meeting. Public announcement, no secrets.

    This year the contracts were not all in place at that meeting and no announcement was made.

    There is a very good chance that the official announcement will be made around the end of this month.
