    There is zero chance I'll be there. Not because I don't want to be there, but because I am overloading myself with work again.

    Anybody interested in going in on an Air BNB in Harrisville? It looks like there are a few nearby.

    I will neither be racing nor volunteering. Dealing with some family medical stuff that will probably keep me off the bike for a while.

    I was going to camp at the sportsmans club... if this actually happens. An actual dwelling sure would be nice considering the potential weather. Keep me posted but I can't promise anything as camping is a very cost effective option for moi.

    I don't know how they're going to get all of this together in just a few weeks. Stage sced, volunteers, sup regs... and then get enough competitors signed up to make it worthwhile. It's still not on the NASA schedule.

    I guess it's actually happening. Did Dave have to drop out?

    The BRS was incredible! The conditions were excellent and the course was ideal. The last stage was like dessert! A roller coaster of dirt!

    I withdrew as I couldn't justify the cost with the smallish field. Entry, tires, travel add up real quick to be a big number. I went to da UP instead.

    Great rally Charles!!! You brought it home safe for the win.:beer

    The transmission on my van took a shit the week before the rally and none were available. I found the only vehicle on Turo in my area that had towing capability. My wife and I were worried whether this was going to be worth the time and expense.

    It was! There were a couple hiccups but the course was phenomenal! The locals loved it. The name might change to the Adirondack Gateway Stages, but regardless, I'm definitely in for next year!

    Ironically our transmission died too but in MONTANA. Nightmare trying to find one, ended up putting a monster of a tow trans in cause thats all I or any local mechanic could find. Def not in the vaca budget. Regardless my point of saying that was I was trying to get home early for a late BRS entry! Very jealous and happy for you amigo. The stages look pristine and just like an amusement park ride. I will def be there next year. SANDBLAST 2022!!!

    If you enjoyed NEPA, BRS is 10 levels higher! Just a handful of rocks, relatively short transitions, and plenty of humps and straights!
