Sounds like the mini-gathering was a blast too!
Unless I happen to be on vacation at the time, the limited Friday-Sunday time frame works best for me - with Saturday being the focus day for activity (primarily a scenic ride followed by some kind of community meal).
Having a sufficiant number of lodge rooms and cabin options is sweet. And some, I suppose, may even prefer to camp.
Maybe passing out an itinerary/map for the group ride would help us stay together. If we're in a high-traffic area it's hard to stay linked up... also, some like to ride faster/slower than others.
I'm all for more beds...my neck was jacked up for like a week from that futon. I know what I will do differently, take more time off of work so I am not so beat and can actually enjoy myself.
I would also like to see an organized itinerary so everyone is on the same page. That just makes everything gel together better instead of just "who wants to do this?". All in all there isn't much I would change.
yes, I agree.
well, I did have a route mapped out! but, I forgot to print it out and make copies for everyone.
yeah, that was my bad! sorry. I will make sure to next year to print out the map and to make copies for everyone!
as for an itinerary, I do believe I did post one on here before the Gathering. but, again (my bad) I meant to have that also printed out for everyone to have at the Gathering. yeah, that didn't happen. that again was my bad and I will make sure that next year it will happen!
thank you for the feed back. keep it coming! remember, help me, help you!
oh by the way.....thanks, "EZ-C" for the "pm". that really made my day!
maybe you should share that with the rest of the forum? I think they might agree with you too! lol
