A bit of trivia..... while we are sitting in our homes or places of business today... (because it is 22 degrees outside).

My Planning Committee was made aware, a couple of months ago, that I was considering a significant change to the event for 2012. It involved a 7 day loop of the state of Colorado. They were not happy with me.....

There were comments like....If you change RMAR and do this loop thing, then you will completely loose the social and family element. After some going "back and forth"...... I agreed. My RMAR Committee is a very wise bunch of souls......

Actually.....this is what I am getting at......and this is what they pointed out to me......

RMAR is a Family type of event. Everyone who has signed up for their third one really likes the environment. It isn't cliquey and everyone is welcome and involved. I love the fact that folks feel safe to bring their spouse and kids.

This isn't the event where half the attendees get rip-snort drunk and race 50cc's around the camp at midnight. We respect our host, we respect our neighbor and we behave ourselves. If you have a desire to "tie one on", howl at the moon and break your big toe on a 50cc bike while racing three other drunks around a campfire.....do it the weekend before you come to RMAR.

Additionally, if you think you want to tackle a 7 day, 1000 mile dirt loop in Colorado, it is being provided. In "Upcoming", check out the CAM1000. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=736274
