    Just let us allergics dip ours before you add the shrimp. That's what we do at Dad's lake house.

    Rather than sitting around with a plunger,
    maybe volunteer to help change out the 4" T to a street T.
    They know what the problem is and will probably have it repaired.

    Next year at Black Bear I will have the coffee operation sorted out finally, with the required circuits in place.
    Moving to a new location might mean getting someone else to do the coffee operation. I really don't want to start over in a new place.
    Changing locations sounds interesting and like a real challenge. Do we really need that kind of challenge?
    Do we need more space for more people? NO! Do we need campers at a motorcycle rally? Not really.

    We have Black Bear to ourselves. We will not get that at another location. Leaving Black Bear and coming back will not be the same. Right now we are in charge of how the deal is at Black Bear. Once you leave and ask to return the shoe is on the other foot. At that point they can change the rules and the cost to use the facility.
    I think as long as they tolerate and welcome us there we should stay. The place is private, no cops, no troublesome neighbors, and we have yet to run out of good riding area. We will not find a nicer or better facility where they want us every year!

    I know a licensed electrician that attends and will make sure no one is injured in the making of the coffee. He'll prolly even help.

    The food has been threatened. Now, the coffee has been threatened. This is bullocks. Since before Rick passed we (ignorant inmates from the Lowcountry and midlands of South Carolina, as well as random others) held our own camping trip in SC. Every year it seemed to land on the same week or one before or after. We decided to cancel it and start attending the rendezvous instead. This has been our second year and there is no looking back. The spirit of what exists must remain. If the rendezvous moves will it be the same? Maybe? No one knows. Last Saturday my friend and I made a 4 hour round trip to Virginia to rescue a stranded inmate. When we arrived there were 3 other inmates that had been sitting the with him for 3-4 hours. Then, yet another, inmate drove him (with his lame bike) hundreds of miles in the direction of his home. Is this what happens at every rally? It's not that people want to do this on their free weekend to f' around? Nor do they want to receive recognition for it. The fact remains that they are willing to do it. The spirit of the rendezvous is strong at BB. It doesn't appear that we have busted the 200 limit. We may next year. Until people are being turned away in droves should it be a question to move it?

    It looks like the votes are in. Panties need to be unwadded. If it's electrical upgrades you need. I volunteer an unnamed inmate that is a licensed electrician to assist you. I'm sure he'll step forward if he is needed. Otherwise, I'll call his scrawny ass out.

    (Microphone dropped, feedback ensues)

    Coffee needs a dedicated 30 amp circuit feeding four 20 amp receptacles.

    I'm not the electrician. That means shit to me. Coffee needs cream and sugar just like me. I drank some today like I like my women. Bitter and black. It was ok. I was tired.

    When I attend an event like RDV I can't deny that all the amenities are really nice. I enjoy and appreciate them. [really] But for me, none of them are an essential requirement.

    An example, Laurel Forkers know that the only amenities are a pit toilet, a spring, and a place to hang a hammock or pitch a tent.

    It's pretty cool to see folks in the freezing rain or snow laughing and telling jokes in their rain gear.

    So I guess I'll speak for some of us that no matter where you decide to hold RDV or what amenities are there as long as smiling faces are provided it's all good.

    If there are no sponsors or prizes............... that's OK.

    If there are no t shirts, cups, or stickers.................. that's OK.

    If I have to provide for my own nourishment..................that's OK

    If no alcohol is provided...............that's OK.

    So my official vote is it does not matter where. :deal
