Lee, Nice airport in Dayton. I think Dave even has an extra rig you can borrow.

Mighty good ideas there Joyce. I'd prefer to be on the road with oldtimer, who is now in Arkansas making his way to Ohio. Unfortunately, work obligations keep me at home this week.

We got in last afternoon and the campground is great.  Lots of trees and shade.  There are two commercial areas a few miles away from the camp ground and easy to get to.  The KOA is just a bit stiff with their rules but I believe that things will work just fine.  There are quite a few folks here already and it's looking like we'll have a good turn out.

We ended up with 206 registered and I don't know about the rest of the folks but I had a great time!  Yes, it was hot but it's hot everywhere.  We had a lot of good shade and a big pavilion.  If anyone who attended the rally has good high resolution pictures we'd appreciate it if you'd share them, we need photos for The Sidecarist.  Please send your photos to Al@AlOlme.com.  We'll do our best to properly credit the photographer with every photo we use.  Next year it's the Northwest's turn to host! Hopefully higher elevations and cooler...keep you fingers crossed!

Had a fantastic time at the rally! Beckie and I send our thanks and appreciation to everyone that worked to make the rally such a fine time. A big "thanks!" to "Just Dave" Szkudlarek for all of his efforts.

It was great seeing some old friends and shaking hands with some folks for the first time. With everything there was to see and do I missed getting a chance to say "hello" to some folks (Al Olme! A very busy guy!) or more than a quick greeting to others. Nonetheless, I am glad I got the opportunity to see everyone there!

The collection of rigs was incredible from concours' resto's to choppers to HP rigs! I spent most of Saturday just amazed by variety of combinations. The "show and shine" alone was worth the trip! When I find the camera I'll post some pics. We took a bunch of them.

Again, our thanks to those who made it happen.

Bob n' Beckie

Hello Everyone,

After getting some what caught up, after The Buckey Rally, I just gotta say Thank You Everyone! It was a great experience to attend and not the last! From the campground scene and all the B_E_A _Utiful Rigs and the wonderful people I met. To the Ohio weather, which was predictabley, un predicatable! It was blast! I even got some help, olong with Angie, on "Flying the Chair" in the Campground Field! I never did introduce myself to the Coloradian with the BMW R1150GS/California Sidecar. Thank you for allowing me to drive and "FLY" your rig! Wonderful Memories that I pull up when I'm 95 in my rocker! God Willing!


Till next time,

~ Russell
USCA # 7924

PS: psst, Jay. You got my paperclip!

I have to agree with jaybee47, the rally was a number of firsts for Jo and I as well. Great fun. Hope to see you all again at the next one. The rally was one of the highlights of our summer on the road. I am so glad Larry P insisted that we attend.

Paul, just glad I happened to see you riding through town, we had the opportunity to talk and that you and Jo were able to swing past Dayton on the way home. You must have gotten home safely. Looking forward to meeting up again next year in Idaho. Then again, once we figure out what year we are off to visit family in Fort St John, a side trip your way has to be part of it. Larry

Thank you for all of your hard work in putting together such a terrific rally. My daughter Gina and I had a fantastic time at our first National Rally. We met so many wonderful people and saw so many awesome rigs. We can't wait until the next rally that is close enough for us to be able to attend. If anyone is up for it, we could plan a ride somewhere near Columbus while the weather is still nice out!
