3-cost as reasonable as possible, $50-60 sounds good
4-meeting others & putting faces to names, gaining info & insight from others more knowledgeable then me
5-late spring or summer
our biggest problem is that our calendar fills up way in advance, causing us to do a lot of long range planning.
So as much advance notice on the dates and location as possible helps us.

|1. Have you been to a Nat Rally? <> not yet, I hope this will be our first of many |
2. How many? <> 0
3. How far will you go to a rally? <> no limit as of yet
4. How much will you pay? <> case by case basis, depends on venders and such but 30.00 to 50.00 sounds about right
5. What is the biggest thing about a rally for you? = Good Clean "family" type gatherings. ( to use Jim's phrase) seeing other rigs and meeting like minded people, and visiting other parts of our great United States
6. When is the best time for you? Spring, summer, etc. <> spring to early summer, but I have camped in 20 deg. weather in the mountains a few times so we are flexible

|Hey; Guess what? People are what makes a great rally. Rally host try to have something for every one. Some ,like me, do more visiting with old and new friends. Some like a long group ride. Some like the games,either as entered or watchers. You get the idea. Come and enjoy what ever you like,just come. Host are volunteers and they put in a lot of time trying to suit you. Will and Harold are planning a great rally in some of the most beautiful riding areas around. All the effort is wasted if YOU don't show up. |

|Hi Ace: |
I have to jump in here and thank J.R. for the kind words. I may not get a lot of riding done during the rally because of being rally chair/host but I will enjoy hanging around with J.R. and Avanelle and swapping tall tales. We will have the privilege of sharing the venue with the Black Hills Bluegrass Festival so if you are into Bluegrass Music you are in for a treat. We have a volunteer in charge of rides. We will have guided rides and self guided rides. We are planning to visit Mt. Rushmore ($11 fee). We are close to Devils Tower and The Badlands. These places are all connected with roads through some of the best scenery you can imagine. (Again - I am prejudiced) You can even ride through a buffalo herd if you are brave. Custer State Park ($10 fee) has a wildlife loop that is one our favorite rides both in the tin box and on the rig. Really - if you ride slowly through the herd of buffalo (and have quiet mufflers) the buffalo just ignore you. (During the Sturgis rally they herd moves out of range of the loud Harleys and you don't see them.)

|1. Have you been to a Nat Rally? YES |
2. How many? Several and I hosted one.
3. How far will you go to a rally? Number of miles. If I have the time and money I'd go anywhere.
4. How much will you pay? reasonable. I'd like a family rate i.e. member +1,+2, etc..
5. What is the biggest thing about a rally for you? getting together with fellow enthusiasts, seminars, games
6. When is the best time for you? Spring, summer, etc. Spring, before it gets really hot or humid.
we've had some great rallies and I've gotten to know many members and friends at them. Really, for me and Beckie it's all about the people and the rigs. A clean campground, a good Saturday night meal, and a nightly campfire to sit around and swap stories makes a good rally.

|Arriving late to the party, just saw this thread today. |

2. How many? 1 USCA, 3 BMW, several regional rallies
3. How far will you go to a rally? Number of miles. 1500 miles
4. How much will you pay? 40 - 70, depends on value offered. Don't need more t-shorts but a learning experience is priceless
5. What is the biggest thing about a rally for you? The people, Education, Want to see other rigs, but more important want to know what went into building it. What was the thought process behind each decision. What was the end objective for the rig build? A rig build can be modifications to a Ural so it fits the user's purpose. Or a complete ground up build.
6. When is the best time for you? Spring, summer, etc. From Spring to Fall. Anytime that doesn't conflict with family gatherings. Family comes first.
Richard, Thanks for starting this thread.

|In Costa Rica I can add up now 3 rigs...time to organize a gathering. |
To go to the North again would be too much of border hassle...Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Desalmador (Desoaler, new word creation for El Salvador), Honduras, Guatepeor (worse then Guatemala), Mexico, USA... a few border delays too much.
I would love to participate after 28 years again in a rig gathering.
