BMW MoA Rally

Any other folk planning on taking their hacks to the MoA Rally in St Paul?

Looks like my new rig will be done in time for me to get there. If all goes well, I fly to Miami 7/14 to pick it up on 7/15 and start wending my way north, stopping to see friends and family in Savannah, South Carolina, Virginia Beach, MD, and PA before heading west to St Paul.

I hope to see at least some of you at the Rally.

Thanks,
Duncan

PS: Will post pics of the new rid when I get them

Duncan, not everybody is able to follow the string from one thread to another to give them a coherent story. Only us coachpotato/retired/ADVjunkie types.

Radrider, the rig is being built in the Netherlands.

Dunc--I'll be passing through St. Paul earlier that week but must be way down the road from there by the day the rally starts. Can't wait to see the new rig! You must be excited! Is the boss ma'am gonna go with you, or was the Texas experience enough to last a lifetime?

Anybody know if they offer day passes? I would like to drop in for the day to see a few things. I don't see anything on the site. Hate to show up and they want $85 or something at the gate for a few hours.

Long ongoing debate. They never have and most likely never will....

Not gonna make the rally this year.
I'm a bit out of your way picturing your planned route, but if you need a stopover I'm just a bit Northwest of Orlando.

MOA rally

I'll be attending, with my wife. first time for both of us. Won't be driving the hack :-( Would love to run into DaveBig and some of the other locals while we are there. My sister-in-law lives two blocks from the main gate of the state fairgrounds so we will be roughing it every night with hot food, showers, and soft beds.

I will probably be spending a lot of time around the airheads tent asking questions and swapping lies.

No day passes, $70 in advance just to get in the gate...

Despite this year's MOA rally being less than 200 miles from my Buffalo Ridge hideout, I'm having trouble spending $70 for no food, camping in the middle of a city next to a railroad yard, etc.. But maybe communing with my fellow airheads is worth it...

Looks like I'll arrive late afternoon on Thursday - probably register than go to motel.

Mary Margaret won't be with me at the Rally - I need to keep her working and earning money so I can play and buy new toys. It's great to be a Kept Man. She is going to meet me in Kalispell MT and then we'll spend a couple of days in Glacier before heading home.

Here's a couple of photos of rig in pieces at Eurowing [EML dealer] in Hialeah:

MM dictated the color scheme. Y'all shouldn't have any trouble finding me.

Thanks,
Duncan
