    I had planned to attend Vintage Fest this year and camp with my buddy Scott in his new camper--we were gonna rough it in style in the RV area. But his accident changed everything, he's still at Shepherd's in ATL doing rehab, and I'm gonna go visit him instead of attending the Fest. He needs some cheering up, it's gonna be a long road to "recovery" for him. He's not paralyzed anymore, but he's got extensive nerve damage, the kind that changes your life...I don't think he'll ever ride anything on 2 wheels again. But I'm hoping for the best.

    Glad to hear Scott is at least not paralyzed. Hope he heals up. Good dude!

    You and Hatch will both be missed

    If anyone needs a place for Saturday night, let me know. I moved back to B'ham this year thinking I could host people, but I'll be out of town Friday, until Saturday afternoon.

    Thinking about sunday only pass? Is it worth it?

    One step at a time... good to hear he's not paralyzed. Enough steps and he may get back on 2 wheels. :deal



    I hear ya, bud. Same chit here... been working my ass off for several months remodeling a condo for my mom.

    All work, no play makes this chucklehead a dull boy. :bluduh

    Jake, If you find yourself wandering the aisles of the campground, stop by the Concours Owners Group 'compound'. We normally set up in southeast corner, just inboard from the outer most path at the bottom of the turn down the hill from the shower trailer. Not sure if that makes any sense... but you'll see my blue Tundra and a bunch of Concours and a black DR650.

    Safe travels.

    It’s going to be a HOT weekend. Even at the highest point in Alabama it’s toasty.

    Im in MH lot C next to the redhead chick whose cat escaped the camper & ran off into the woods. No chance in hell finding it but I'll keep helping. It is hot & dusty. I have plenty of space for tents if anyone shows up without space.

    Edit: Well I'll be damned the cat did come back.

    Lot B for broke, I’ll be camping. Doesn’t look like anybody else I know is here, so time to annoy the campground!

    If anyone spots any Montesa cappra stuff, holler at me. Picked up one, could use any decent parts for spares.
