    This is great, i look forward to getting out to that side of the country some day. I think i would have to fly myself. If i am hauling that far i probably would put down roots and not come back. LOL

    Sweet BJ. You've hosted over on the eastern side of the Mississippi before and I know you'll have a fantastic event. I lost your number (along with a lot of other stuff) in the spring. My phone accidently was "restored" to 2015.

    Anyway, I would love to make it, but with Jared and I potentially hosting the eastern rally, I wouldn't have the time to make it, plus..... that would be 4 days of travel with the kids going nuts in the rear seat of the truck. LOL

    I think I'd have to pull the same fly in and out plan if we get over to CO for the rally. I hate that we could not get together in March this year when I was at Copper Mountain. I'm heading back out there in March again (3/6-3/13). We will be staying in Frisco and skiing at Copper. Hope we can at least have some food/drink and catch up this time.

    Heath

    We like the gatlinburg area and would love to make that one also. We were there a couple years ago and drove! It’s a LONG 2 days or 2.5 normal days one way. I’m sure we can have 2 Rally’s and both group have a great time.

    760 miles due south. Something to consider.

    About two days for me, I was born in Fort Collins so I know the area well. Beautiful place for a rally and lots of attractions. Looking forward to this one!
