There is no possible way that your hospital stay and surgery *actually* cost $50,000 dollars, it's just completely off-the-charts insane. And we wonder why healthcare is bankrupting the nation? Because it's bloody corrupt.

Conspiracy rant over.

I happen to know a med-evac helicopter flight from service to a big, fancy hospital 60 miles away costs $19,000...in 2009 dollars.

Andrew you were quite inspirational, the first time we met, when you ride your 1150 over from new ampsha, and kicked my butt on it, then rode it home

I was never brave enough to ride to the rally

I considered doing that again this year on my F800GS. But I'll take a more comfortable means of getting there and run the 450. Night stages and cool weather will make the van much more appreciated.

OK, went ahead and booked Fri+Sat nights at the "Happy Hollow Campground". Anybody else staying there? Would be nice to have a couple beers with other racers. Just got a fridge for my van to keep them nice and cold

lodging

Clearview motel still has rooms available. I will be staying there. Located in Governeur 17 miles north of Harrisville.

Too bad the 1000 island campground is closed. It was nice to have a group of us together around the fire last year.

I'll be at Happy Hollow as well, since I just found out the other place is closed. Does anyone know the name of the camp ground that service used to be at?

It is unfortunate about the campground. They told me it was just for renovations, and next year it should be open at this time.

Ah well.

On a brighter note, Saturday's forecast is calling for biblical, frog-strangling rains.

Frog strangling?

Anything like that epic night of the, what 2nd and 3rd bits of prophecy? The floods and plague of frogs?
