    this summer i had to wait for two hours at the Beartooth pass while they cleared the road.

    in the post you quote, i was referring to a regional event, as yes, in November no one is going to make it over the rockies.

    It is simply a matter of who is inconvenienced and who isn't, and what folks are used to. I'm a rally camper so like the historical solution. But for motel folks Charleston worked better. But they were happy so didn't yell as much or as loud.
    Mixing it up once and awhile is a good thing.

    Mixing it up can be fun but in this case I submit that the campers are the folks that are most likely to close the beer garden, i.e. stay till the last act.

    The best way to reslove a seperation of camping and entertainment is to have shuttle busses.

    I also think that many of the folks that stay in hotels are doing so not only for the comfort but because they like quiet too. If you were to ride by the Ambassador and staff hotel in the evening there is a mellow party every night. I don't think these folks are not in the beer garden because they'd have to ride there.

    I'm new to the MOA Rally process(es).
    I'm not new to riding or the trials and tribulations of the road.

    Out of the 10k or so folks that will be in Bloomsburg the vast majority will be over 55, or as old as the kid in the photo above is now.

    I'd say someday you'll get your wish, rally central and all the activities will be indoors at a convention center and the only folks camping will be the poverty riders.

    Enjoy the party while you can folks, especially if you are one of the younger riders.
