    Back From Shiloh



    Just got back from Shiloh Rally yesterday after a 10 hour ride. It was well worth the ride. Good food and good people. This is a beautiful area of the country in case you have never been there. The food is great and the people in the area are very friendly and accomodating. There are plenty of good roads to ride in the area and plenty of sites to see. The Shiloh Battlefield was great and we went over to Corinth, Ms and and to Adamsville, TN and we visted the home and museum of Sheriff Bufford Pusser. He was the sheriff who inspired the movies Walking Tall. All and all it was a great time with lots of good people. We plan to Return to Shiloh next year.

    I similarly had a good time. We took the van so my wife and grandson (4 years in November) could go.

    We saw the Living History group fire the cannons at Shiloh, climbed around the statutes and cannons, threw rocks in the river, and looked at bikes. We're still working with the grandson over the 'look with your eyes, and not with your fingers' when he's around other peoples' bikes.

    We had a tent and it was obvious to him that we should be camping (and build a fire!). The wife preferred a hotel, and that pretty much settled that.

    Tom 'Bullit' Butters, the new treaurer of MOA made an appearance and was introduced at the rally awards ceremony. Connie Reaves was also in attendence, I believe she will be one of the '09 MOA National Co-chairs.

    Yeah, I was there. My first time at Shiloh. This is one of the rallies that I could never attend UNTIL I retired. It was a good time, good food on Friday and nice weather. It was good to see old friends, JJ, Magilla, Randy, Charlie, Lyle, and to meet new people. Connie looks much better when not in costume and face paint. I'll probably be there again and again, so it will really be a "Return to Shiloh."

    Great time...

    My wife Shirley and I attended Shiloh for the first time and plan on returning. Friendly folks, a great site, superb roads and the weather! Shirley claims that that weekend provided the best summer riding we had all year...perfect! Thanks to everyone involved, we had an excellent time.

    Camp? There? What about all those rebel ghosts? No thanks. Beautiful place, but it is sort of creepy.

    Watch the film with some local southerners, they'll walk out of it pissed off. I'm from Ohio and find it somewhat amusing that they are still so hung up on what they call "the war of northern aggression".

    Nice cemetery for the Union soldiers, but I think most of the Confederates were put in mass graves.
