    Only if it has a camper trailer or toyhauler in it.

    That is my solution, I am just not sure when it's going to happen.

    I have belonged to RA every couple years, but never to a national rally.

    Question- are RA rallys a huge group of old Starbucks BMW/GS farts like the BMWMOA rallys?

    Considering it's in October I'd say yes and no. Yes to old farts but no to the Starbucks crowd. The RA crowd is more Dunkin Donuts. :wink:

    Maybe - but, some of those "farts" are pretty talented in the GS Giants stuff ...

    I enjoyed it this past year.

    If I'm not mistaken, The MOA rally in 2014 was around 5,500, the RA was 1,400. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    I haven't been since MOA in Johnson City. It sure seemed bigger probably since it was a logistics nightmare getting in and out compare to the RA in WV the following weekend.:puke1

    Of course, it was also somewhere around 10K attendance.
    Too crowded.

    It was in the 7k range IIRC.

    Vermont set the record at something like 9600.

    The RA rally is a great time. I especially enjoyed the ones at Cannan Valley. It would be fantastic to see the RA come to the Northeast to a similar facility.

    I've been thinking of membership in the RA. Not a big rally-go er but I could be tempted to come to the RA rallies. Riding amongst autumn colors in Arkansas' Ozarks sure sounds great! And 1500 is way more palatable that 5K +/-.
