Looking forward to seeing you guys at the rally next week. I will be doing a shoot at the Dragon and hope to film some of the rigs there.

Thanks, looking forward to seeing all of you next week. Will definitely be on the "Dragon" and probably the "Diamondback" and maybe the "snake".It will be great to meet with some other rig drivers. Ride safe!

Ruth Daisy and I are here. What a beautiful place. Nice to be in a campground without all the usual distractions. Camping like it used to be before all the big rigs came in. Be prepared, closest grocery shopping is about 12 mi. away and closest Walmart is about an hr. away. GPS stopped working half way through the trip. Made for some interesting adventures! Heading to Murphy and Deals gap tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing all of you this weekend.

I got in yesterday. Met some new folks and caught up on some old friends.

Oh yeah, I "DID THE DRAGON"...by mistake! I was blindly following the GPS in my Honda Pilot, towing the rig and noticed a sign advertising my photo on the Dragon and by then I was on it! 11 miles, 300 plus turns, lots of semi angry sport bikers [I was not the only four wheeled vehicle out there]. It was a workout, even with power steering. The sport bikers all passed me ignoring the double yellow.

The Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge is REALLY NICE! I'm looking forward to having the rest of the crowd show up.

Wow, bummer! Hope she will be ok. A bad back is certainly not something you want to have if traveling long distance. You'll be missed. Wish her a speedy recovery! See you down the road!

I would like to thank everyone for taking time to show me their rigs. Kathy and I felt at home with everyone, and of course our Lab Jade has never met a stranger.

What Al isn't telling you is that he also hauled a separate sidecar from Iowa for a buyer that he had never met and expected nothing in return. A great way to welcome newbies to the sidecar world. Way to go AL Olme.

Thank you all for a great time at the Rally. Ruth and I enjoyed meeting each of you and putting faces with names. a special thanks to Cliff and Noreen for "masterminding" this venture and having the patience to lead this "herd of cats " on some beautiful roads. The Ironhorse campground was a beautiful place and John and Colleen have made it a very welcoming and motorcycle friendly place. This was our first sidecar rally and we look forward to enjoying many more! Ya'all ride safe!
