    Not So Quiet Area?

    I hope someone can let me know in advance where the "Not So Quiet Area" will be on the campground in Lima. I don't want to end up in the doghouse and really don't want to piss anyone off. That is not my intention. In the past I have been been told I have a loud voice and it carry's. Sorry bout that. I have since learned how to make the necessary adjustments. I do like to have a good time and look fwd. to tilting a few with y'all in Beemerville See you at "The Bean" and Thank You in Advance Coast Guard John

    Usually the way the layout is set up, is there is a quiet area, and then there is every place else. When you get to registration, just ask. Also you can check out http://www.bmwmoa.org/rally/rally05/index.htm which will have more information posted, such as a rally map.

    I posted a question regarding a rally map last month. Sue noted she expected the map to be available by mid-April (I'm not holding her to that! We should have plenty of time to plan our campsite locations, quiet or otherwise.

    Yikes --- Is it the middle of April already?

    The truth is: I did get the map done. BUT -- we are making last minute changes... For instance, when we learned 10 days ago that BMW's Mobile Tradition will be at Beemerville, we decided to move the Vintage Bike display up closer to the BMW trucks.

    This freed-up a building, which will now probably be a seminar building. Ah - the shuffling of plans.... I LOVE THIS!

    Brad Benn had it a little wrong though.... the LOUD camping will be clearly marked this year. And the QUIET camping will be clearly marked. Everywhere else will be "standard-rules-of-common-courtesy"

    So - if you like to stay up with the big dogs and howl all night long, plan on camping in the northeast corner of the fairgrounds. If you like to hit the hay early and get up with the birds and watch the sunrise with a hot cuppa Jo, then camp in the southwest corner of the fairgrounds. And if you can play nice with others, no matter what the surroundings, then Beemerville is your playground.

    Oh-My-Gosh... we are getting so excited! Bring some friends.... this is going to be awesome!

    Oh, so that is how you are going to let everyone know where I am camping, by calling it the LOUD area. Coooooolll

    I like the gardens in Oh10 because they grow beer.

    Cool Loud Camp Area

    As the current Forum "Bad Boy" aka "callmethebreeze" Banned User Extraordinaire, I'll be camping in the loud area. I'll be bringing my fishing gear. Do I need a license for Fugu?.....lol....

    Quiet camping is for wussies. If it's too loud get a damn hotel room, that way you can complain to someone who at least has to act like they give a ****.

    I always camp in the quiet area only cuz I don't want some drunk singing at 2AM to a Aerosmith CD (Trenton '02). Normal noises don't bother me and I don't turn in early. Only problem is I like to sleep til 8 or 9AM. All the old farts seem to fire up their airheads at 5:30 then ride around (or thru) the tents. If you're gonna go early please don't pitch your tent in middle or at least leave your bike at the curb. Now I sound like an old fart.

    Preach on brother.

    Then again, you can all go with my plan... hotel for daytime sleeping, camping for nighttime debauchery and no sleeping. No riding if involved with debauchery. Riding hungover is a whole 'nother experience.


    I travel for work so I gots lots of points for hotel stays

    I find it sad that anyone would advocate such a point.

    ...."camping for nighttime debauchery and no sleeping"......

    Hopefully you don't bring this attitude with you if elected to the board. I know that you helped decide how I'm voting!

    Why bother bringing a tent or camping gear with you at all? That way you could travel quite a bit lighter!
    I bet those that advocate the postion that camping means making all kinds of noise and making a fool out of themselves are the absolute first one(s) to complain if disturbed while sleeping....camping or otherwise.
    Then again, bringing pets to a motorcycle rally is beyond me too!

    There u have it. another unregestered stick in da mud's opinion. FYI I have camped w/o setting up a tent for 2 yrs. Everyone's definition of camping is different. Could that be fun? Have some respect u stick in da mud. I bring my tent with me but why set it up if it's "not necessary". And don't tell me what kind of day to have you unregestered stick in da mud.

    Sorry you feel that way. However, some of us would not be able to go to the rally if we didn't bring our pets. And, as long as you don't neglect your pets and they are okay with the noise, etc., there should be no problem. We take our dogs wherever we go, and they are VERY well behaved. Otherwise, we would not be able to go anywhere but our own backyard.
