2017 National Rally

Joe,

Since you decided to stay at the EconoLodge, I'm guessing you haven't seen the EconoLodge or read the reviews.

I missed the posting about another rally being scheduled for Ferenbaugh's at the same time as ours. What's the rally and where can I read about it?

Also, what extra cost amenities are there? I missed that too.

Just made our reservations so we'll be heading up from SC.

Joe,

I went out and looked at the EconoLodge again. It looks like they are under new ownership and they are getting better reviews. Much better than they were getting when I made my reservations. One really bad review about bed bugs but since there's just one, I'd probably over look it. Looks like you hit the jackpot.

Still can't find anything about another rally at the campground or extra cost amenities, can you fill us in?

It seems that we have some confusion as to what constitutes registering for the Corning Rally. If you fill out the forms on line and don't pay YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED. A word to the wise. If you haven't paid - please do so.

Reservation made. See all y'all in July Thanks Duncan

Duncan! Man, it would be great to see you again!

I'm hoping to attend this year but am not signing up in advance as Tulliver and I will be coming back from a three week ride to the BMW Rally in SLC and the TOR Rally in Paonia CO...with a bunch of exploring to do in Utah and Colorado between and after. Then the long trek across the plains and Midwest. If we do make the USCA rally it will likely just be for a day since by then I'll probably miss my other two dogs (and wife) a lot!

Peter,

Are you going to pick up the BMW RA Rally in Petoskey, MI on the way to SLC? It's the weekend before the MOA.

Peter,

Are you going to pick up the BMW RA Rally in Petoskey, MI on the way to SLC? It's the weekend before the MOA.

No...too close to our Independence Day weekend travel nightmare for me. Also I've learned not to try to cram too much into a single trip. We'll be leaving Vermont on July 7th; camping in Rocky Mtn Natl Park the 10th and 11th before continuing west. After the MOA rally depending on the weather we'll either drop down to Monument Valley via the Moki Dugway (traveling in the relative coolness of the mornings) then to the cooler heights of the San Juans in Colorado...or scoot directly to those cooler heights.

I can sweat. Tulliver can't!

Pete: Great to hear from you - hope you can get to the Rally in Corning.

Loki Dugway is a great ride - You'll enjoy it. But you can expect daily temps near or exceeding 100.

You might look at the thread[s] on last year's USCA Rally in Hotchkiss CO for info on rides and roads in the Paonia area. There are some REALLY good ones. DirtyDR now lives in Hotchkiss and would be a good source of info.

Hope to see you in Corning. Now that I'm living in VA, maybe I can get my keeper to allow a trip to VT for fresh lamb
