baring changes in my schedule I would be off sept 11-13. I just drove through that area ( Baker city, LaGrande etc.) last weekend with the RV...told my wife I wanted to go back this summer on the Wing. Joseph, Enterprise, Lake Wallowa are all just north of Halfway and would also make great destinations as well. I would be happy to lead a day trip if you want.

\'85 Yamaha Virago
\'95 Yamaha virago
\'04 Victory Vegas
\'07 GL1800
Participate in LIFE, The journey IS the destination, Enjoy the NOW!;

I might be able to make it, I live in central Calif. September might be a little busy for me to take enough time to enjoy it. I will keep watching this thread and if I can go I will let you all know. Were planning a trip to Idaho in July and might come home thru Eastern Oregon. Were going to a blues festival there for one day and the rest of the time ridding and hanging out. The Blues festival is called Blues and Bones. They have a rib cook off and blues music. Its a good day of music and food. I don't know what more a man could need in life. Thanks Jerry

An east coast ride is financially out of the question for me this year.
Oh, and Bike is afraid to go back through Texas since we saw Cadillac Ranch last time we were there, meaning we'd have to take the long way to get back east anyway.
Maybe next year NASSIR will be in Nebraska, or some other place Bike isn't afraid of.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Hahahaha, Bike doesn't want to become a piece of graffiti art huh?

The cross the US trip is not attainable for me this year either, unless I have a bundle of money dropped into my lap sometime between now and then.

Glad to see the interest in keeping this thing going. The dates have always been somewhat fluid, but if we don't get that settled very early on, nobody can plan for it. The weekend after Labor Day has worked well for us for several of these, and it looks like that is good for most this year as well, so let's just plan on that.

The location moves around usually too, but I'm with Dennis, last year's spot was excellent, warm, dry and some fantastic roads and scenery. It was my 2nd time to the area and I would love to go back. There's still plenty more to see there that I haven't seen yet. Haven't even been down to the dam yet, and roads I have been on there, I want to ride again. Always open to suggestions, but because of a busy schedule on my part and past experience, if you have a suggestion for a location then you should be willing to provide all of the needed information on the location, hotels-motels, camping, ride routes, etc. That legwork can chew up a lot of time that I simply don't have at the moment. That added to my decision to vote for Copperfield campground again.

I'm taking the reins on this simply because someone needs to, but I'm very willing to hand them to someone else if you want to drive. We voted to hand them off to Henry last year but he wined and made us all feel uncomfortable, so I didn't push it.

I didn't whine, I didn't , I didn't !!! OK, maybe just a little.....

So far it looks like I will just have come back from Munich in time to make it to the meet-up.

I thought that when you got close to retirement time the travel requirements for work were supposed to slow down. Not happening here!!
