I’m bringin’ Metaxa…Greek brandyMay 22, 2011 at 11:04 am #62758
Nine days and a wake up! The rig needs a fire extinguisher and a good coat of wax to protect the paint, but is otherwise ready for the trip. Still need to pick up dog emergency meds then will start the endless pack and repack drill. I had it down last year, but over the winter I added panniers and a three gallon Rotopax for extra fuel. So of course last year’s packing plan is back to square one!
Looking forward to meeting you all!May 22, 2011 at 11:04 am #62759
Found this picture of me and my husband Mark. We’re going to have lots of food available at the rally. You don’t even have to leave. Friday night fish fry is going to be a 1 trip through buffet. Beer battered fish, baked fish, pork, chicken, salad, homemade baked beans, coleslaw, veggies and dip and roll and butter. All for $10.

Mark needs to see his dentist. (And his dietician)May 22, 2011 at 11:04 am #62762
The first 1500 people will get a rally mug that holds 20 ounces of fine Leinenkugel’s beer. Tickets will be sold at $3/ticket or 4/$10. A great beer can cost you $2.50 while you’re listening to the band in the beer tent.
For us wine drinkers – we have selected a white and red wine. Mark and I are wine snobs (well in the $10-$20 range) so this isn’t going to be Mogen David.
At this time in two weeks, we’ll be eating our fish fries and waiting for the band to start. Doesn’t get much better than that.May 22, 2011 at 11:04 am #62763
I don’t suppose an extremely happy and well-behaved golden retriever on a leash would be allowed in the beer tent..?May 22, 2011 at 11:04 am #62775
Don’t forget the food your rally chairs have planned. Chicken on Thursday, Taditional Wisconsin Fish Fry etc on Friday and Pulled Pork on Saturday. On site, modest price and Yum!May 22, 2011 at 11:04 am #62776
I’m frantically packing. Barley doesn’t seem to have a worry in the world.

Till my dog and I set out in the sidecar for the rally! :biggrin
We’re heading north into Ontario, then camping all the way around the Great Lakes and into the UP before dropping down to Chippewa Falls. Not sure if I’m more excited about the trip or about meeting all my new friends, but the entire experience will be fantastic!
See you there!
Pete and Barley

Glen, All I can say is with a traveling companion like yours you must make friends everywhere you go! : )May 22, 2011 at 11:04 am #62694
[SIZE=”3″]Hi Glenfiddich, I can’t wait, my group is leaving on the 25th going more or less the same route. We plan to continue on to Winnipeg then south into the USA to the Aerostitch open house then on to the rally. Should be a great ride…:thumb [/SIZE]May 22, 2011 at 11:04 am #62696
Be sure to introduce yourselves if we meet up. Barley insists on more pee breaks than I’m used to, so our daily mileage is around 350 or so. And that CAB means the beer is on me.

Glen, I like Magic Hat #9. We probably can’t get it in Wisconsin. : ) Would any of you guys be willing to share your planned route?
