Besides..... I need another road trip.
With some local culinary road trip fair...
And.... I need to catch a whopper this time. Do you hear me @TexasRT???
In Lansing, MI on the return trip from Shady's. I was beat at that point.
And what's the plan for the 2nd annual?
Skidmarx's place in Michigan.
Can't make that one.
I'm in a wedding (7/29) the weekend before Skid's RP Rally date so it kinda works out for me since I'll already be north 2 hours from home and closer to MI for that.
I think Skid said the "real" rally date would be mid-week so I'm guessing 8/2? Time to start googling and making a bit of an itinerary!
Since we are posting Shady RP Rally trip pics...
Million Dollar Highway
The hail storm I terrifyingly rode through on my way down Wolf Creek Pass!
Grand Mesa National Forest
Will Moneypenny be playing this shindig ..................... even if it's in Michigan?
Moneypenny is no more. The keyboard player (Bruce) and I left them and joined/formed a new band. We're called the New-Matics and we're twice as good, all the players are real pros.
BTW how ya been?
Will you still be playing up by Lolo Pass?....I may be able to make it come springtime..When most of the snow is gone....
I have 3' so far here by Lake Chelan....And it's 18*...........
Moneypenny is no more?
Then I want my money back dammit !!!
Been good amigo.
And you? Hope all is going well.
Finished up a few construction gigs last month, so I'm driving a shuttle for a property management company this winter.
Low stress ...................... low pay. But I do get to ski 4-5 days a week!
The New-Matics ................... I like that a lot.
Sounds like the name of a Real "Garage" Band!
Next band name should be ............. The Air Tools! See what I did there? It's thematic!
Hey Valker! What's up in Pampa?
And in closing ................. being front row at the Moneypenny gig was one of the high points of my summer! And it was a pretty good summer!
Hope to see all you RPBP folks sometime soon! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
They came up with the name when the bass player/band originator was hanging around the shop with the other members drinking beer. One of the guys pointed to a tool on the wall and said "how about the power drills?" Rob said that's a pnuematic drill. One beer led to another and it was the New-Matics, so yes metaphor of Air Tools, which kind of works for a group of guys using tools to disrupt the airwaves.
East or west (or both)? Decisions decisions
I think that's a really unique idea. It should give more people a chance to come since they don't have to use up vacation days on two separate weeks to make it happen. Leaving on Saturday morning gives people 4 solid riding days to make a Wednesday rally and 4 more to ride home.
Thinking it would be nice to grab Niagara on this trip as well as do some UP riding in MI. My route looks like a circle for now. Just don't know whether to leave home and head northwest or northeast.
Yes Shady there is a Santa
