    It's always just the little details, isn't it.

    NYS Thruway authority may close exits 23 and 24 on the Thruway due to Flooding issues. Areas in the I 90 corridor of Amsterdam to Schenectady Has flooding issues again for those who are traveling from the west and south heading to the rally. Take caution also in the I 88 corridor. Hopefully the spigot will turnoff soon!

    Bike is packed, route done, checked, modified and done again. Seems there are more road closings every time I check........

    Going to try and get there, not sure we will at this point, due to all the flooding from PA, through NY and into VT.

    Hope to see you all there!

    No worries, campers, BlackFly and I were camping in Shelburne last weekend (up to see fellow UVM
    Alumnus Tim Thomas and the Stanley Cup) and Vermont is open for business!
    Bring your maps and flexibility, we've reloaded for the MOV rally and will see you all there tomorrow!
    The locals will be helpful with routing updates, as they were for us.
    Also check http://www.511vt.com/default.asp?area=VT_statewide for detailed updates.

    What an awesome rally

    You couldn't have asked for a better weekend! Thanks to the MOV for an absolutely incredible experience. The site was first rate and the food was outstanding!

    The riding was not bad either!

    +1! Had a great time, ate too much, met some nice folks and got to see some I had met at Bloomsburg.

    Thanks Muriel and crew for a fun weekend!

    It was nice to see you, John, and everyone else as well. And thank you to all the rally goers who helped with our two flood-related projects. The people in the town of Brandon really appreciated our help (well, maybe not the guy who kicked us off his land during the morning project, but I hear he's about to get his comeuppance from the town!). You all did a good job schlepping trash and hauling books from the basement of Safer's headquarters.

    We were blessed with good weather. Everyone seemed to have a great time.

    Sunday, after cleanup, I rode home over Bethel Mountain Road/Camp Brook Road; there is a detour as you near Bethel - good GS road, but rather rough for cars and street bikes! It came out on Lilliesville Brook Rd to River Road, which runs along the White River - that route is currently the only connection to Rochester from the east. The White River left so much devastation in its wake - evan after seeing damage for a week, this was still shocking.
