    Since we knew once the rally started we wouldn't really be doing much riding we headed out to Bloomsburg early.

    One of the interesting things we got to do was ride the Millersburg Ferry to cross the Susquehanna river. It was funny that with all the high tech ways we use to communicate today, a simple open or closed door across the river is still an effective way to signal the ferry driver.

    I also want to immensely thank STATDAWG for hooking me up with some amazing routes, roads and rides in his neck of the woods. Coming from Long Island, I could only guess on Google Maps which roads would make riding there and back enjoyable. STATDAWG made our weekend with suggested roads that had me giggling from ear to ear, for hours on end. Thanks a million! Wouldn't have been the same without your help and advice.

    What difference does it make? As long as people are happy with their lives and it doesn't negatively impact me or my family, it is of no concern to me.

    It is too bad the posts were removed; they went a long way to show who not to pitch a tent near at the next rally.

    It is too bad a Mod was not around to censor that redneck who had the stage. His comments were as bad if not worse.

    Hearing Sister Sparrow on Thursday night was a treat - I purchased their CD upon returning home.

    And on the way back home our group had a nice encounter. Most of the ride to and fro, and the time at the rally were quite warm. However, around Altoona, Pa. on the return we got some cool air coupled with some very scenic countryside. For about the next hour's ride we were in some of the nicest motorcycle riding country and weather that one could want. That part of the ride just about made the whole trip worthwhile.

    Thanks Newstar!

If I were a Noob to this group, I probably would not return. The behaviour and opinions of a few are not an indication of the group as a whole.

    Friends are Family but do we really need to be so dysfunctional??? Come on, folks...we just shared a fantastic week together. Why ruin the afterglow? Thank a volunteer, remember the new friends you made, or plan to stay home next year.
    Newstar, thanks. I am not quick to condemn the behavior of a few as the ways of the many or even the one.

    As a first timer the whole rally experience was awesome!!! The roads through PA to get there, the vendor bling, the organization and support at Airhead Central.... I could go on.

    But the most interesting moment?? Hearing Captain Zydeco play some Grateful Dead

    This was a GS BS point on one of the Adventure Detour rides to the rally. it looks like fun!
