    Exit 165 off 81 there is a Comfort Inn and Econo Lodge with a Perkins right next door and a Dunkin Donuts around the corner. There's a Hess station right there as well. not sure if someone local may chime in that can grab a receipt.

    The fuel would have to be at a 24hr location as well so someone local would be a great help in determining this. With a modest motel just next door would be perfect. - Bob

    Not a lot of 24hr gas near the hotel but a station just down the street is open from 06:00 to 23:00.

    A few miles to the NE there is a Sheetz and a hotel nearby. It sounds perfect as it's a non chain hotel and the reviews say it's a dump so it must be cheap.

    If I'm not mistaken isn't that Wilkes-Barre? We'd have to backtrack to get the starting receipt from Scranton or is the start location still open for some discussion.

    It can be either Scranton or Wilkes-Barre but not both.

    I'm looking for a consensus over the next day or two. I want to get the registration process started ASAP and I need the starting locations fixed first.

    I'm leaning towards Wilkes-Barre; it's a little closer yet far enough and there seems to be the required services.

    Mark you are correct. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton are really one metro area. Having passed through the area far more times than I care to remember I was suggesting an exit that would put starters furthest from traffic snarl-ups and closest to there direction of travel, yet still have lodging/food and fuel.

    Then my vote is for a Wilkes-Barre start if that avoids traffic right off the start. Local knowledge is always a plus. BTW Dennis I sent you a PM.

    Sorry it's not a Hess, it is a Citgo, across the street is a Gulf Oil (not sure of their hours). Turkey Hill 1/2 mile away is open 24x7 (616 Hazle Street Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702) They sell unbranded gas, not sure I'm keen on that unless they have high test. Then there is the Sheetz.

    Greetings and Happy Friday,

    Wilkes-Barre will be the start location for the NE group.

    The final details and registration page should be ready early next week.

    Also for those in the Northeast if you haven't heard I also put on the Minuteman 1000 which has a group Saddlesore component. This is a much more involved event than the Sedalia 1000, plus you don't end up at a great rally but you do get two fantastic meals, a full Iron Butt rally experience and a nice gift from our sponsor, MAX BMW Motorcycles.

    Ride is weekend of June 7, Registration closes next Tuesday May, 22.

    Thumbs up I'm In!

    Rob, thanks for putting this together. Booked a room at the Comfort Inn and am leaving there at 5 AM Wednesday if anyone is interested. Awaiting details as to where we need a gas receipt from, etcetera.

    Now to get the tankbag installed and broken in before the trip!

    Looking forward to my first IBA challenge (registration up yet?) and first time at the rally! For anyone in the Albany/Schenectady/Troy, NY or surrounding areas who might like to ride together, here is my itinerary:

    Leave Schenectady, NY between 5:00 - 6:00 pm Tuesday 7/17
    Staying at Comfort Inn in Wilkes-Barre
    Leave For the IBA ride early Wednesday AM 7/18
    I'm staying in a hotel nearby Sedalia Wednesday night and in Sherpa tent for the rally
    Leaving Sunday morning and staying in Bellville, OH that night (657 miles)
    Back home on Monday (568 miles, via southern route in NY)

    I am an easy going responsible professional who stays less than 10 mph over posted interstate speeds and less than 5 over on other roads. Lots of miles and long trips under my belt both solo and with groups. Happy to lead or follow.

    PM me or post if interested

    I'm involved in a group of three that are planning to do this ride together, but still no mention on the IBA website.

    The registration page will be up *soon*. I thought it was going to be ready last week but alas it's spring and the key players have very full plates.

    Generally speaking rides like this have a specific page with a URL and are not referenced off the main IBA site. I will post the link as soon as it is live.

    Best,

    Rob Nye
