That’s true, he doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. I tend to run my stupid mouth and let everybody know my business. That’s just the way I am.

It's the way you choose to be, Kent. Don't worry.. we still love you. :)

I don’t understand why you aren’t planning it! The rally last year was cool. It was a nice hotel, lots of good riding and good times around the fire at night. You talked about finding somewhere different for this year. Now you are out? 

I’m riding to Nova Scotia instead next summer. The dates I could do a Gap trip in June due to my daughter’s birthday weren’t working for many folks so I said screw it. I’ve been wanting to do Nova Scotia for a while, and Matt and I have been talking about it for a couple years. No better time to do it. 

I’m sure I’ll be heading to the Gap area in late summer/early fall for a long weekend.

Any weekend in June works for me. And I like having it in Robbinsville. 

How does late May suit your fancy, Kent? I think I might take a week and stay at a KOA in Townsend.

The end of the month might not work for me but don't plan around me because I'm not sure how any of my vacation is going to pan out next year yet. 

Late May strike your fancy, Tim?

No chance of you taking a weekend in May, Shawn?

You mean like going early in the month when there is a much greater chance of monsoons?

Actually, the climate data shows June to be a heavier rain month. May is actually the better month to go, since the temps will be cooler during the day.

I'll be down the weekend of the 7th. If the OR trip overlaps I'll come hang out. 

Fuck Groms. Stay on your side of the hill.

I can do the weekends in June 8th and 9th or 15th and 16th or 29th and 30th

I think I am going to take an entire week this year. I have a new job in the works, so this is pending how well I negotiate vacation.

May would work for me.

I’m cool with may, but to be honest, I wasn’t too impressed with Townsend. Too close to the park and minivans full of tourists and too far from the fun roads. 

I like the idea of Robbinsville better.

honestly, if the planning were right, and based on my years of staying all over that damn area, I'd choose just reserving the Deals Gap Resort for the week. Rent the whole block, plenty of trailer room, big firepit, decent rates, right in the center of it all, and you see it all. Riders from all over the world stay there. 

Booze. OK food (re: breakfast, as any subsequent meal is had on that day's ride, and is (or should be) part of that day's route.

Overflow a short ride away in Robbinsville.

ya'll overthink shit, and then it's too late to rent the whole block of rooms.

I had little issue with Fontana. There was alcohol. You can find fault with anything if you look close enough. It's the fucking mountains.

I think I'll be gone by late May, so I'm out anyways, just giving my opinion.

I avoid the gap as much as possible. It isn't very enjoyable for resting or riding. I prefer to be away from the constant "brapping" and Harley dick measuring late at night. I liked Townsend, so I will probably stay there again. I also liked the cabins at Dragons Rest, in Robbinsville. Quiet and closer to better food than the gap store. 

The resort is cool, but the large crowd really doesn't appeal to me. I do think it is a good option for the OR.net Invasion, though. Lots in the "positive" column, for sure.

It seems that there is interest in people going but I'm suspect of the crowd. I got some weird text a while back that seemed too much like a grinder setup to make any commitment to when or where. If the drunk or stoner that texted me could figure out technology better organizing might actually appear organized.
