ok, it's getting so close to the "Kentucky Iron Derby 2013" (VN750 Gathering), we need a "head count" so, I think it's time for a poll......

as it stands now,I will be camping at Koomer Ridge Campground.Hopefully I will be able to get a spot for the camper if not,I'll probably be there in a tent.I will probably go down Thursday and setup the camper and have some one bring me back for my bike.If no spot is available I will be setting up a tent Friday.I'll talk to several of you individually on the phone the week of the Derby so we can coordinate a meetup on Friday evening. We gonna have a good time :smiley_th

Booked at the Winchester Best Western Friday and Saturday. Will ride Sunday then take off North. Found three different prices before booked. No AAA discount.

Koomer Ridge Campground? hmmm....I'm gonna have to look that up and see where's that's at. is it "motorcycle friendly"? and yes, we are going to have a good time!:beerchug:

after some looking, I found AAA rates/discounts, but found that if you did the "book in advance" thing, that was cheaper than the AAA rates/discount. just a FYI thing. :)

Hey Od if you haven't firmed up reservations there is a spot for you in the camper with me and Ted.It will have AC but we will have to use the shower house at the campground,Plus it will give us time to talk bikes and get some face time,I am going down on thursday and Ted is going to drive down and pick me up and We will come back for the bikes.The Koomer ridge campground is first come first serve so I want to set it up Thurs.to be sure to have spot.

I'll leave my old truck down there so,I won't have to make two trips in it plus it will be available in case of any unforseen bad luck ,flat breakdown or whatever and a grocery hauler for saturday eves cook out.

Well I haven't firmed up anything yet, kinda makin sure I'm firmed up first, I think I am pretty much... There is a motel right smack in the middle of Stanton (Abner's Motel - 606-663-4379) that I kinda have an eye on...
It looks ok, and is all ground level I think...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

OK-Now are we not riding Fri. the 9th...??? I was thinking we rode Fri, Sat. & Sun. 9th, 10th, & 11th... I was thinking that I would ride up Thursday, touch base (Cell Ph.) and meet up with y'all and ride Fri., Sat., Sun., then head home Monday morning... As of right now it looks like I am going if the good Lord's willing and the creeks don't rise or Aug. turns out to be rain/rain/rain, like we have had here in good ole dry July, I'm not a night time or rain rider if I can help it though...lol...

we are with you OD, with the whole night time/rain rider! lol we (the wife and I at least) are not much for riding at night or in the rain. but we will if need be.

as for riding on Friday, the "Buckeye Bunch" won't be rolling into Winchester, KY., until sometime around 3:00pm-ish. it all depends on what time we leave Grove City. what time we leave Grove City, is going to depend on what time everyone gets to Grove City.

but like Denny said, he and friends, will be already there and riding around on Friday.

cool. we are looking forward to having dinner with you and friends, Denny. :beerchug: although, Kanuck69 and wife will not be coming into Winchester, KY., until later in the evening. we don't expect to see them until around 10:00pm or so, :( and by that time I will be drunk or sleeping or both! lol

one week from today, the wife and I are leaving for this! woo hoo! big fun! :rockon:
