I was always aware that you can't please all the people all the time. I think everyone is benefiting from this discussion.

And Pat, that camping won't be within sight of a venue I'm looking at. I've actually stayed at that KOA in the distant past, and it is a great location with great facilities. But there isn't a hotel close by that can accomodate a group of 80-120.

Bob, would this be OK? http://whitefishrvpark.com/ Well, other then the picture on their website of Mt Robson which is over 300 miles away frown

Although I have no idea whether I'll be able to make the UN next summer or not, I heartily thank you both for your positive posts and your willingness to be productive. Good luck on the reasearch!

Ain't that the truth. The new ones have six speeds.

I'm always glad to meet great people no matter what they ride or even if they don't.

Whitefish, BC or Ar-Kan-Sas for the next UnRally and I will make every effort possible to be there! thumbsup

Of course it is the "people" and not just the riding so I will make every effort possible to be at the next UnRally no matter where it might be. smile

Has everyone forgotten that in Colorado we can pass around big fat doobies and it's totally legal?

I second that emotion. The UN will be wonderful no matter where it is held. The fact that there are members who are willing to step up and give the gift of their time and effort to all of us here never ceases to amaze me.
I have been to Uns I through IX and loved every one of them. Heck, Jamie and I even organized one and had a blast doing so. If there were drawbacks to one or another, the people and riding obliterated those small details from my mind.
Rest assured that the organizers will work their tails off to make it seem effortless for you to be there. They will do everything in their powers to make it as good as possible for as many people as possible and it will be perfect, just as all of the others have been. Go if you possibly can, no matter where it is. Make it happen. You won't regret it.

Missoula, Montana for the location. Good roads in all directions.

Dates: late(r) July so as not to interfere with the Fourth of July.

Thank you, Les.

Everything Les has said is absolutely true. Every single Un has been in just the right location. There have been people to meet and get to know. Friendships to make that have lasted years and years. Challenging roads to be conquered, scenic views to be enjoyed, and memories to be catalogued to last a lifetime. If you can make it to the Un, go.
