Thumb 2015 Old's Cool Spring Rally Discussion Thread

Ok gang, time to start thinking about our spring gathering just a short 4 months away.

Are we happy to return to the Blueridge Motorcycle Campground in Cruso ?
I personally like it there and I think Phil and Leslie enjoy having us. Anyone have other ideas for location ?

What about dates ??? The Meltdown Vintage Bike Show is in Hendersonville on the weekend of April 25th. That is just a hop across the mountain for a good ride and nice bike show.

Let's kick it around a bit, give me some input and ideas !!!

Cruso........................ Other 1 .................................Other 2

Cogswell
BMW Kurt
RedBud ?
jbeem ?
HappyRiding
Cuttle
Norton 73
Ron Bernert
docwells7
workerant
kennyanc

I'll start a formal rally thread once we have some details nailed down.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

Good time to start planning.... only four months? Damn!

Anyway, unless something changes I'm out for this one. But for a good cause. I'm temporarily fostering a Catahoula Leopard Hound through the DogsOnDeployment.org for a young man who has joined the Air Force and needed a foster home for the dog from Monday after Thanksgiving until (hopefully) sometime around June.

My dog is half Catahoula, so I had to step up because they are a special dog and not for everyone and I knew the owner would have a really tough time finding the right foster home. He and his GF had adopted the dog from the Orlando pound last year after it was abused, allowed to get heartworms (successfully cured), and owner surrendered to the pound. My GF is not physically able to handle the both of them(combined weight of about 160lbs and they do get into disagreements which require physically separating them once in a while) when I'm not around, so no trips until I reunite the dog with his owner in the summer.

The big brown one is mine; the lighter one with blue eyes is our guest....

i like the idea of both on the same weekend, but seeing as how something always comes up for me, i don't think my vote counts

You might have a point there, Mark. That worked out well for GSBS.

Don't just up and bail out already, there's plenty of time to work something out.

I like Cruso and will be there if at all possible. My knee surgery didn't go as well as expected and it looks like a partial or total replacement is in order. That could put a damper on early next year but we'll wait and see.

I'll check to see if Phil has any Touratech stickers.

Trust me, the ole lady can't handle both dogs due to her physical infirmities. So I'm committed to dog sitting until the owner finishes basic training then Class A tech training. The only out is if he washes out early and reclaims his dog, but he is a bright young man with two really good career paths open to him. I think he is going places in the USAF.

The only other option is to repeat what I did in October 2013 and drive the car up with just the foster dog. (My dog is only allowed in the Jeep because he tears up upholstery with his toenails and 90 lbs digging them in. He will not sit still in a vehicle). The foster dog on the other hand rides very well. He's dog friendly, but plays rough with others. And he's already whipped my dog pretty well, despite my dog out weighing him by 20 lbs.

This dog is a pure Catahoula Leopard Hound. They cannot be left alone for more than a few minutes unless they are turned loose to hunt hogs or herd cattle. A unique breed. Smart, sneaky, and devious.

Nope. Laurel Fork is the same weekend as the Old School Rally.


I would vote for Cruso. (I have a certificate for a free cabin for Thursday night!)
