I was wondering when everyone planned to arrive in Gunnison, so here is a simple poll. I've also added a second question to get an easy estimate of where people will be staying.

Thanks Mike. I have been lurking on the CO Beemer site for over a year and am looking forward to meeting some of the members.

Leslie and I are leaving Dry Town Sunday morning the 11th and arriving at the Gunnison KOA on Monday afternoon the 19th. We're spending a few days with Leslie's brother in Fayetteville, AR since it's on our way . . . . eek.gif

. . . well I never WAS any good at Geography! dopeslap.gif

 

We're staying at my sister's place in Tucson on the way out, then hitting KOA kabins in Silver Springs, NM (future UnRally scouting trip? wink.gif ) and Amarillo, TX. If you see two R1150RT's with amber motolights down low moving at a brisk pace, be sure to wave--unless you're riding your "other" bike, of course! dopeslap.gifgrin.gif

Team Schnauzer is scheduled to depart Fort Collins on Monday and arrive at the KOA on Monday afternoon. Not sure yet if I'll be riding or towing on the way down. We're staying thru Friday morning, then off to Ridgway State Park for a few days, then back north to Stagecoach SRA for a couple of nights before returning to HQ. Can't wait. I really need this.

Good plan. You remember the great roads from the Eureka Springs Un. Just watch out using your GPS. You might end up in Fayetteville GA, or one of the many other Fayettevilles grin.gif

Hey Dog Dancer,

 

If you are going to be in Arvada on the weekend, why don't you come on down to Morrison for breakfast with the Colorado Beemers and then a ride. thumbsup.gif

 

BTW I was in Arvada last week. It's my home town. Lot has changed in the last 39 years!

KOA for me. Leaving Des Moines sometime, I've got the campground booked from Monday-Friday. Either will head back to Des Moines when I'm done or roll on west to the Seattle area, depending.

[hijack]Uh oh. I went to Campbell Elementary, Oberon Jr. High, and Arvada West before a detour to North Carolina that ultimately brought be to CSU and then DU Law. Small world, ain't it? Applejack is still the most impressive liquor store I've ever been in. grin.gif[/hijack]

On an extremely tight schedule. we pick up the 'Wing in Denver on Wednesday morning, 9AM. We'll get to Gunny in time for dinner, hoping to meet as many folks as possible at/after dinner. Thursday morning we gotta head out: the 'Wing is supposed to be back in Denver by 3 PM. Would dearly love to stay longer, but c'est la vie. Keep your eyes open for Joe and Mrs. Frickin'. cool.gif

Glad you found some wheels...! Look forward to meeting you. You'll make it to Gunny and back the next day with time to spare.

...200 miles in 10 hours.....you gonna push it or pull it????

confused.gifeek.gifdopeslap.gif

 

Cute. smirk.gif It's a Goldwing, and my wife will be with me. Which means this ride will be more "tour" than "sport:" I want to make sure she enjoys the trip, too. smile.gif There will be scenic detours and plenty of stops, and if we get to Gunny ridiculously early, heck, maybe we'll take a run up 92 or something. Just gonna play it by ear...'Wing it, you might say... smirk.gif

Mitch,

 

When I saw your UNRally registration that said, "Honda GL800" I figured you were just yanking our chain. Now I find out it's TRUE!?!

 

WUWT? Guess I missed a story somewhere!

I want to make sure she enjoys the trip, too.

 

See how it goes. Make sure her biggest memory is the fun she had, not pulling her gear on/off 500 times as you stopped every 10' so she could stretch.

I've gone back and forth on attending and my wife helped me make my final decision. Guess I've been hanging around the house too much, so she wants me to go. Oh, man I love that woman!

 

You know...she seemed really happy that I was going... eek.gif...it must be the love for me, right? grin.gif

 

Anyway, I am going to do an SS on the way up on Sunday and should arrive at the KOA around 8. I'll definitely need a shower and a cold one when I arrive.

Funny, though...

 

Barb and I usually don't stop at times while on the scoot just because we have had enough of the gear-on...gear-off for the day. When in the cage, we get lots more photos.

 

Oh, BTW, we are getting in Monday mid-day (if the CANBus, and ESA, and rear drive, and...let me smirk.gif). This is after a Sunday stay with some of our old Minnesota friends (ex-GL riders along w/ me) who are now in Colorado Springs.

Gary Peterson is riding with as well.

 

Barb and I are roughing it at the HIEx, Gary at the KOA.

Don't worry, bro. I've got a fine $2.00 ceegar that's been in my glove box for two years now that I've been saving for ya. I didn't bother to take it out, cause I knew I'd run into you sometime. grin.gif

Bring it and I'll smoke it down to a stub. crazy.gif I may need a few gulps of 18 year old firewater for motivation, but I'll smoke it!

Arriving Tuesday afternoon/evening

 

Staying at Best Western Tomichi which looks close.

 

Leaving Friday morning, need to be back home that Monday.

Well, folks, with 58 votes in (I know that are more of you out there), we are dead even - 29 will be camping, 29 in motels. Most of us will be getting there by Monday, but almost half won't arrive until Tuesday or later.

 

So now it's time for the next poll, when are you leaving Gunnison:

Link to comment

I'll be leaving Gunnison at first light on Friday and wouldn't mind some company on the way out if you are heading my way. Triple digit temps are forecasted for west Texas later this week (what else is new?), so I'll be leaving in the wee hours on the way up to Gunny to avoid the worst of the heat, but will be in it most of the day on the way home...ugh! crazy.gif I think I'll be leaving the stitch at home.

Got to work Friday... dopeslap.gif

 

SO, Saturday at the crack of dawn it is! On to visit family overnight in Clarksville, TN. Sunday will (if all goes as planned) end in Amarillo, TX. Then a leisurely drive to Gunnison on Monday thumbsup.gif. Should be there in time for dinner if I don’t sleep too late on Monday morning (or don’t make Amarillo).

 

I’m nervous and excited all at the same time... can’t wait to see you guys (I must be sick! eek.gif). And Richard, I’ve got my mini-balls… smirk.gif
