    Hey Paul,

    I did put it in quotes. Only "competitive" for Kenny and maybe a few others.

    But will you be at Paoina??

    Right after the Redmond Rally I will beat it back to Vermont to ensure everything is in place.

    Never thrown a party for 4,000 but have lots of GREAT help; The Vermont MOV and the Yankee Beemers

    But those folks who attend Top of the Rockies will be one step closer to earning a special commendation that is in the works.

    Seen at the Pownal, Vermont site. I think he was staking out an early campsite.

    While the racetrack did have jail cells they are short on ventilation but are undercover.

    the island is a wonderful place to travel if you have the time. Not very large and lots to see if you like beaches and interesting backroads. The RA is on our radar as well. Enjoy! - Bob

    My wife is an Anne of Green Gables fanatic. After watching her collection endless agonizing times, I had the impression PEI was small enough to walk from end to end in a day. Boy was I surprised when I saw how big it is!

    But it was one of my favorite places on that week long trip!

    My mother was born there; my oldest son was born there and I went to the University of Prince Edward Island a few years back (psych and philosophy). Such a nice place to spend some time. In fact, we are looking at incorporating it in the next Salty Fog Riders Rally because of a Labor Day bike rally over there just as our ride around the Cabot Trail concludes. You could walk end to end but bring a tent - Bob

    Here is a link to some route sheets from a Triumph event last year. They start in Bennington VT, which is about 10 miles from Pownal.

    Right now the ride chairman is working on these very routes for the RA rally. The author of the routes, "Tito" Sanabria, has given the rally permission to use the routes as best suits the rally.

    Extra detail and local knowledge is being added.

    The plan is to have the hospitality committee give you a paper map AND will have a computer available to download chosen rides straight to your Garmin.

    Any chance they will be posted online as gpx files ahead of time?

    Personally, I will have routes planned, and programmed into the GPS, prior to arriving at the rally.

    Nice rides, but the Adirondack rides both
    cross a bridge at Crown Point that NYS DOT
    blew up this year. A detour south or a ferry
    trip will be required.
