Question -----The Gathering--2010----A List----????

I know its in the other forum but seems no one else is responding there, and I'm not into the Yahoo Group...
But I would like to know who is going as I think I might be able to make this one if the weather and other things co-operate...lol...
If I still would be welcome, once I got there I could cover my Sportster and no one would know...lol...
I just would like to meet some of you nice folks as the last member I started out to meet was when I wrecked Clyde and didn't make it to Lynchburg Tn. to meet him (Dragonrider)...
I was just thinking a list of those going here on this forum might be of some benefit to others also...
Another question---Is the Aug. 25-29 5 days, if so I would only want to stay a couple or so, so which would be the best 2-3 days to stay...???
Thanks and have a good one...Old Dog...

I am going, though not on the Vulcan (It is waiting for me to pull the engine and replace the stator), I will be on my Victory TC. I know Diane and Pick are coming.

First, How is that leg doing since your last surgery...???? Dang Hoss I sure feel for you... Prayers and best wishes to you...

Ha, ha, OHC I don't wear much in the way of advertisment stuff, when I bought my 03 VN750 the shop gave me a black Kaw. t-shirt which I got in the wifes size and she wears it, around the house mostly...lol...
I did however pick up a HD cap at a little convenience store for $5 (I don't buy $30 caps), and did a donation to the disabled Veterans and got a USA cap, gotta cover my ugly bushy head with something when I take my fullface helmet off it looks like a stump full of gray grandaddys...lol...
I don't even have a HD license plate on my car or PU, I do have a Rebel flag on the back of my vest because I are one, and also that is our HS team Go Franklin Co. "Rebels"...lol......
Have a good one...Old Dog...

Ha ha! I had that same problem when I had more hair. Now I keep it about a half inch from the skull. Doesn't look as gray and I don't get helmet head so bad!

Boy oh boy, I wish I could go to the gathering. It's been a ridiculously busy election year and we aren't done yet. We've got an election going on right now, one in September, then the big November election so my "free" time is going to be limited to an occasional weekend here and there. I might be able to pull off a weekend to go to Eureka Springs for the VROC gathering, but even that is iffy. I'd love to meet up with Dianna and give her the hug I owe her! Of course, as sweaty as I get riding right now, she might run screaming...

I'm about 60/40 of going right now Old Dog. Work got in the way of my plans to ride up to Sturgis this week and it may get in the way of The Gathering as well. If I do make it, it will probably be arriving Friday and leaving out Sunday and I will be on my Sportster as well. The Gathering I made in 2004 had other bikes than just 750's so it's all good, just a great group of folks (although Pick is questionable) and it is a great resort...........

The Gathering is a great time if you can make it. I have been for the past two years, but can't go this year. Good people and some nice riding. Don't worry about the bike. Lots of people have moved onto other bikes, but keep coming for the company. Heck, we had two Goldwingers making us capuccinos at the rest stops last year!

The first couple of days people trickle in. The best thing would be to travel there on Thursday and leave to go home Sunday morning. There should be rides planned for Friday and Saturday, and you have to be there for the big pot luck dinner/raffle drawing on Saturday night. Everyone bugs out early on Sunday morning. The cabins are perfectly adequate for two people (with good AC!) so you can double up and save $. If you need a roommate check the YAHOO site or contact Dianna or Pick. Someone is usually looking to share a cabin.

If you go here are a few helpful hints.

Bring something bike-related to donate to the big raffle. Cans of seafoam, cleaners, bling parts, clothing, your bike... whatever you want to donate. The raffle finances this and buys some of the food for Saturday.

Bring some food items for your cabin. There are stocked kitchens with microwaves and coffee makers. There is the possibility of Dianna's biscuts and gravy in the morning, if you're quick, and of course some eating out, but you may need to be able to have a meal or two in your cabin.

Bring swimming stuff. The lake is nice and practically right outside the door. I have no knowledge of this year's plan, but last year Pick drove and brought two jet skis. Big fun!

Bring come cash. You will want to buy raffle tickets, and be able to donate to the cause for jet ski gas or boat rental and gas or just whatever activity gets planned.

If you go you will have a good time, and you will make some new friends, guaranteed.
