I think first order of business is for everyone to check in who's interested in attending. We can figure out when and where after seeing who all is actually serious about coming, and then survey from that lot. I want as many people as possible for the inaugural Russ Rally SC. This is a chance for us to start something special for all us dubbers, and the coolest thing about these rallies, Lizrdbrth will be at every one of them.

Let's do this!

**Consolidation**

What:
Russ Rally SC 2014

Where:
Ozark National Forest MVUM and other trails with nightly camping accommodations.

When:
April 20-26, just waiting for "Who" consensus

Why:
Because our bikes say so. They are itching to meet each other. We can't let our bikes down. No really, it's a rally/ride/camp in Lizrdbrth's honor.

I would like to start moving towards a solid date. If you want to come and these dates either work or don't work for you, please come up on the net with your feedback. Thanks.

Best riding seems like you and r80rt's neck of the woods (Ozarks), and date is totally up in the air.

Personally, I took a week of leave off (APR 20-26) for another trip. But that can be changed. There was lots of mentioning of the first half of September. Was there any area or time you had in mind?

I'm thinking the White rock mountain area in NW Arkanssas would be really good. any time would probably work for me.

Time wise, spring/summer would be best for me. I do most of my traveling for work in the fall, and do a lot of weekend work then as well.

If you don't mind a yankee showing up, I'd be interested in meeting and riding with you guys. I have a friend in Neosho, MO that I visit a couple times a year and can combine a visit with him and a ride with all y'all. I think that is pretty close to the area r80rt suggested. I've never been to Arkansas but heard it's a nice place.

Spring/early summer is best for me but most any time is ok except for Speed Week at Bonneville in mid August and the US Nationals at Indy in late August.

There are a lot of us on the west coast too. I anticipate being in N CA in Feb so anything after that in the relative region would be good for us west coasters. We could probably caravan as a pod from N CA. Brian, Joe, me etc.

Just my 2 cents.

I'm interested - close enough - would this be at a state park where we can camp?

Oh man! I was raised on a farm in NW Arkansas and went to high school there. One of my classmates has been after me to come back for a visit. And has offered parking for my RV as long as I want. On 20 acres. I absolutely can't afford it but I'm gonna start saving. This is something I would very much like to do. I dread the Chiggers, but I can cope.

A trip back home plus the Russ ride. I'm starting to lay plans.

Spring seems to be the popular vote. I already reserved a week off for a trip. Does anyone object to April 20-26? My leave is weird, they make us start on a Sunday and end on a Saturday. But I might be able to convince my lieutenant to give me an additional couple of days to last through a weekend if for some reason we can't do it in the middle of a week compared to a weekend.
