I'm planning to go this year. After all the hot weather riding I am hopeful for those chilly evenings and cool morning rides around the lakes. I'll be solo this trip as Karla is focused on a technology launch and Faye is packing for school. I'll have my tentage along as I don't want to disturb the tranquility of the cabin with the snoring that causes Karla to wear her earplugs while sleeping...

The great thing about sidecars is you have room to bring lots o' gear. The bad thing is that you do.

Is Bob leading a ride to brunch for charity again this year?

Bob Henig is NOT leading the brunch ride this year. He will be traveling on a tour with Edelweiss.

I think we have a full-enough cabin now, but there could be last-minute cancellations, so if you're not on the list, bring a tent and check with us when you get there.

Well...

The Missus and I always go to this one. But... most likely not this year.

Tons of stuff going on at the moment.

Plus, as an extra added bonus, I just picked up Lyme disease last week. So, naturally, I feel like crap at the moment. Probably won't abate by the weekend.

Still, ya never know!

We'll plop the tent "on the lawn" in front of the cabin if we head that way...

Oh, Blake--I'm so sorry. I hope you're on the proper antibiotic now and feeling better. :( It's be so nice if you could come up and camp in the "front yard"!

J & J:

We're having a bit of a timing problem over here as well. We'll hit the road north toward FLR late on Friday afternoon (as opposed to a big roundabout IBEGT ride starting Thurs). If all goes as we hope, we should arrive mid-day on Saturday. Then we'll have to turn around and head back after door-prizes on Sunday. Life sure can get complicated, can't it Blake? Get well soon!

Does anyone have a tent/shade sail for the front yard? Looks like we'd need it more for sun than rain :D but ya never know.

I have an LLBean shade. I'll put it in the sidecar. Maybe camp near the cabin. Share the shade and camera-raderey.
