    The door prizes and the draw on the bikes are worth the price of admission alone.

    But we're an impatient lot, Chuck, rife with eager anticipation.

    I'm still trying to figure out how I, with Barley in tow, could volunteer in some meaningful way. In the end it might come down to me taking lots of photos and sharing the best with you.

    Here's a thought: I'd love to have you and especially Barley, greeting the ebb and flow of bikes and pedestrians in and out of the Rally grounds at either of the two main gates we'll be using.

    It will be either 3 or 4 hours shifts, shaded (with awnings, so protected from rain too!), water supplied and all the smiles and tail wagging the two of you can muster.

    Consider volunteering for Gates Duty at the 40th!

    Motorcycle shipping to or from the 2012 Rally

    I may not have time to ride both ways, does anyone know of a good way of getting a motorcycle shipped from the greater rally area to Portland, OR.

    Thanks, Ric

    Ric... consider fly & rent, ride the Ozarks, rally & return bike, fly home.
    Could be same money & time?

    Or buy the R/T flight from MKC/STL & leave the bike a few weeks/month with somebody, till you have time to ride home.

    Will there be electricity available in the general camping areas? I know special needs and RV camping will have it available.

    looking at the map/layout, plenty of buildings border/near general camping; likely to have outlet outside. many camp in stables/barns for the elect availability. enough cord... u git juice!
