    That tells the story I have been trying to tell the folks on this forum about Wyoming for quite awhile.

    Can't wait! I've been pouring over maps for a couple of days now.

    The Camplex looks great best of all it is air conditioned.

    Do you really think that clip is going to encourage or make anyone feel better about their decision to attend?

    Not trying to make anyone feel better or worse. It's a piece of information, some more data. Without data decisions are DWI - Decisions Without Information.

    If a member is going they know what to expect. If not going then the member knows what is there.

    Additionally there will be many pictures posted on the forum daily to keep all the members at home in the loop. And of course there are many fine regional rallies like

    The Yankee Beemer Rally
    The Finger Lakes Rally
    The VERMONT rally

    and now folks can add their own nomination.

    Don't know about you, Mike, but having been to the Camplex last July, and knowing Wyoming pretty good, I see it as extremely good representation, and brings out the best of what this year's national has to offer.

    Some of the comments and opinions posted by a few disgruntled members since the location was announced, show a distorted view of both the location and the State of Wyoming, and have been really jaded and misreresentational of what this years BMWMOA Rally is going to be.

    I really hate to ask, but what's your take on this year's National? You going, or not and why?

    I've been to 3 Nationals, but I am not a huge rally kind of a guy. While I know that the people are a big part of the attraction of a rally, my decision to attend is heavily influenced by the venue. This one has no appeal for me, and the photos, video clips, etc, just confirms my opinion of the place. I would be hard preesed to come up with any positive attributes. There's no shade, the town appears to be workmanlike type place, fine if have you have to live there for work, but hardly a place for a vacation. I suspect I'd have a hard time finding a decent micro, meal or cup of coffee

    I don't have a problem with the state. As a matter of fact, one of my more enjoyable adventures was in the Snowy Range outside of Laramie. Good riding, and the small town of Saratoga has a free, 24 hour community hot spring, a pool, a couple of western bars, and there's a hotel/restaurant/bar housed in a historic stage coach stop that I can highly recommend.

    We're having some great microbrew, (hopefully good food), and White Cloud Coffee at the rally. You could even stop by Deb's or my abode, and we'll make you some coffee in our fancy dancy Jet Boil

    You're absolutely correct about the Snowy Range!! It was a quest of mine for many years. After 3 disappointing visits (pass closed), snow and rain......I finally conquered it on the 4th time, and was blessed with sunshine and a fantastic ride.

    Sorry you've decided not to join us....maybe we'll see you in '09 in .............(thought I'd slip, didn't you
    Ride Hard, go far, and keep smilin...
