    How about a MOA National Rally in the exact center of the country equidistant from all four corners - or in the geographical center of the nation in Buffalo, SD?

    Actually Kansas would be a fair compromise.

    Thumbs up

    There are many picturesque areas in our Great Country. Why not hold the Rally in a new area? Arkansas, PA, Watkins Glen, NY, are just a few locales that have easy access and nice roads to ride. I was really looking forward to this years Rally but, my wife has been in the hospital twice in the last 2 weeks and my place is with her til we get a resolution to her medical problems. Ride Safe

    The board meeting notes in the July ON (No I didn't read all of them, but that fact jumped off the page at me) indicated Bloomsburg, PA - no dates listed.

    Check out Northern NJ !

    I am not kidding, the area is woods, good roads, NYC is near for folks that dare to ride into it.
    I am thinking of Ramapo College in Mahway NJ.

    Great location, good rides, plenty of Hotels, etc.

    Yes, Northern NJ !

    we never had a rally in NJ !

    all smiles

    Would you help us with the 2011 GS Giant activities ?

    Ian and I need someone that speaks German, that knows about the early space program to GS Adventurers, someone that has a experience with Russia bridges and a Silk Road, and someone that can wear a tie but does not have to. Furthermore one of your former riding partners maybe coming and I need someone to entertain him because we are too boring.

    We can put you in management so you can avoid Union dues.

    Only if they hire Snookie for the entertainment portion of the rally.
    The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
