Insurance is need hope to find out more
Camping there is one near with another across the river. NO camping on the grange. looking in to it now. Patrick do you still have hand out she gave you? I need the names and any online information so people can get ready and know where to go before there standing in line asking if they can put up there tent in the side or back of the grange as there paying to get in.
Rooms to rent seem in short supply in the area but there are a few B&B and 1hr away is a town with lots. I can see if I can find some if there is a need.
Showers are to be found in the campgrounds nearby.
Food can be catered in and there are people that will do this for a price. Seems there from the grange and may be good way to go.

Any one have any Questions? will send a battery of them to her and hope to post info this comming week.
One for the Sept 10-13 dates. Perfect time of year. May not fit Grant's sched though. He'd have a week or so after Colorado to do nothing. Hey that might actually be perfect. Southwestern US one week. Could even go fer a ride.
Are there definite dates for the meeting as I am thinking of going? I need to ask for time of work which I need to do soon. I can't give presentations but I do know a little about travelling in Mexico so if you see me there feel free to ask.
Well now I know it is on I am seriously thinking of going. I guess I will only have 2 weeks to do the trip but it looks possible. Is anybody going from Mex City (not likely) or from the Texas/Arizona area?
Is anybody going that I know or that knows me or of me?
Is anybody going that I know or that knows me or of me?
Garry you old dog!
I just found this thread and think that California in September would be a great Idea. Be nice to hook up with you again if you can make it, I'm going to try to attend, it looks do-able for me as it stands now.
Mike it doesn't look like I can get time of work for the HU meeting but I may go to the Indianapolis MotoGP. Are you interested in that? I hope to visit the Barber museum and Deals Gap. I am at the planning stage so let's see. Ivonne has started work so won't be able to go. While this is a bummer I will be able to do more miles in a day and will be camping on the way.
Location: Bouncing between Sacramento and Portland. Korea soon.
Well, I got a job in Korea so I'll be here for a year or three. I didn't bring my bike but I'll buy one here. Hopefully I can find a Japanese only Ducati Monster 400. I was planning on going to this meeting but it's not possible now. Have fun!
