I was chatting with Cookie over supper about the cannons. I really don't care if you guys bring them, folks light off illegal fireworks year round here at the lake. All I can say is regarding my career, I cannot get popped for something silly like that so if the popo rolls up I'll ghost on ya. We have plenty of stumps, logs and whatnot for backing so I say bring them.

If we're hanging at your spot, we're hanging by your rules; seems dumb to put you anywhere near the potential for any sort of issue not of your making. Dumb.

Following along as I now have a job with vacation time, 'fresh' grandchildren timing is becoming known, and finances are coming back online. So less than a maybe at this point.

You're too kind.  No, really.  You are. 

So, I'll say it.

Don't bring them.  Period.  What might be cute and funny to someone else could literally be career ending or altering for others.  I like some of you guys a lot but, not unlike Eric, I've spent my entire life making decisions that have led me to a certain level of stuff.  I will never put myself in a position to risk said stuff because of the decisions of others.  Don't put Eric in that position either.  His house / community / neighbors are NOT conducive to anything that goes boom.  Please don't take advantage of his extreme kindness.

That being said, I have 20 unrestricted acres.  When we have a meet at my house, we can blow some $#!! up!!!  And ain't nobody gonna say a word about it.   ;D

I'm still a maybe but won't know until June. There's a decent chance my son is moving back to Pittsburgh that week/weekend as their lease starts on the 15th.

Barring the move, I might even be able to make it be the ending of a super-sized twisty fix (10 day trip, souteast OH/KY/Dragon/Snake/BRP/yadda yadda).

All,

- May 1st - 3rd Scooter Rally Cancelled
- June 19th - 21st TBD

I am cancelling the Spring Rally at our home for obvious reasons. I am close monitoring the current situation and see if it gets any better for this planned St.o June Rally. We we will see how this pans out later in the year and I may reschedule. I have strung this out far too long trying to be an eternal optimist. I wish you all safety in these troubled times. Thank you for your understanding.

V/r,

Eric

I was wondering about this. I believe we'll be through the worst of it by then. I hope.

I'm not sure travel for pleasure is going to be a thing for a goodly long while.  Camper parked.

I was really looking forward to this but I am in complete agreement here. Beside, by the time it rolls around I will more than likely have used most of my vacation time just reducing my time at work on the less than busy days.

Glad I got to meet you and your wife. Nice to see Bill and Kim too.

Was a beautiful weekend to be out riding.  Took my first 100+ mile ride this year on Friday.

There will be more good weekends to come.

Anyone heard from Eric lately?

Wow.  I saw this on my calendar and couldn’t believe I didn’t make plans.  I must be preoccupied.
