    Maybe.........if we have a trailer by then. Would probably head up the weekend prior to the 30th.
    Hate to ask but does anyone know whats up with the confounded bridge? I see they have yet to award any contracts?

    I think they do that just to screw with Mercman.

    Hi all,

    Thanks for the response so far. As part of our annual ritual, there may or may not be bridge constuction. There may or may not close a loop that weekend, there may or may not be a paving project and last but not least, the goverment might be shut down on that weekend. Don't forget the chance of a double tropical storm flooding the entire state causing moose, cows and deer to gather in pairs.
    In other words, just make a reservation...
    I moved up the rally a weekend this year because the week before lands on the 23rd and that is definetly a little early for foliage. I'm still ordering perfect warm weather so no worries there.
    See you then!

    That would be funny if not for the fact every one of those things were actually mentioned over how many years?
    I guess I'm considering 9-21/22 or so until 10-1.

    Why is this in the Canadian section [LOL] [?:~{]

    Yeah, I have to agree the leaves were a little green this past year. Although the eclipse was a really nice touch Chris. Being a week later actually works better for me. We will likely be up Tuesday or Wednesday thru Sunday this year.

    And not sure why your Rally is listed our Canadian section! Lol. Probably just a simple mix-up.

    We all had a great time last year, so in all likelihood we will be attending again. Seems so far away....
