    Russ Rally North Central

    Hello all you midwestern Tdubbers. Figured i'd follow suit and see what kind of interest there is in a TW rally for Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Dakotas, Nebraska and Illinois...maybe even north Missouri? You can come from anywhere for all I care!

    I initially thought the second weekend in September would be ideal with the cool temperatures and possible Fall colors. I'm definitely open to suggestions though. As far as a location is concerned I was thinking about Whitewater State Park in SE Minnesota. Lots of gravel roads and even flyfishing. There's several nice campgrounds and beautiful scenery. Again, open to suggestions.

    This would be a great opportunity to meet our forum buddies, enjoy some campfire stories, talk shop and RIDE!

    If enough people express interest, I'll start working out details (e.g. area trail maps, campground rates, etc...)
    Please share your thoughts on date and location, in addition to activities or events we could include.

    What say you?
    God willin' and the creek don't rise.

    This would be a cool place. I use to fish the Whitewater River when I was a kid and remember the town of Elba, which was flooded often. Tons of good ole' back roads. Hope this works out for you all!

    Giving this a bump. I just can't believe there are no northern Tdubbers! I might have to ride out to Admirals rally in Idaho (youdapimp).

    Count me in.
    The 2nd weekend in September works for me. I am flexible so don't hesitate if other dates are favorable.
    The Whitewater area is nice. Never been there on the T-Dub, but looking forward to it.

    I read your post about the T.W.A.T. ride across Wisconsin. Part of that sounds like fun too.

    I know the upper midwest is in a deep freeze, and if you are like me, you want to ride so bad you can taste it. It will get better.

    That said , who will join us for the Russ Rally North Central?

    I'm seriously considering it and have been checking maps and routes. I'd be driving from northern Michigan so the shortest route is through the U.P. and across from Greenbay. I think that would be a nice 600 mile roadtrip. I hate going around the lake the other way, through Chicago. Could take the ferry across the lake to Manitowoc too. Never done that. I guess you can count me in. I've never been to the Whitewater area and it sounds like a good place to see...and hang out with some new people .

    Calling all MN-Dubs and anyone looking for fun. How about some Minnesota Nice, and riding, stories, camping...

    Okay I could have just said 'bump', but we are going to have fun.

    I would like to make it to this rally. My schedule depends on many factors so I will put it on the calendar and hope it works out. Looks like a good spot.

    Born and (mostly) raised in Duluth, MN, I now reside in Lincoln, NE. The uncertainty of actually attending any sort of meet rests entirely on the fact that I am a poor college student with little time and even less money. Whatever happens, and wherever it takes place, I am with you all in teedubbing spirit.
