I don't know about you...but I'm getting AWFULLY EXCITED and have to jabber about it!

I went into REI (camp gear store) last night and inhaled deeply. God, I love the smell of new tents!

I went there to pick up a few more pairs of my favorite socks for riding. I'm in a tizzy about if it's going to be HOT or COLD or both...so I've gone to great lengths to make sure I have multiple layers of coolmax. I grabbed one of those teeny bottles of concentrated liquid camp soap...so I can wash out my gear. Saw some underwear that is "designed for the tourist who is going away for 10 days with only 2 pairs of undergarments". Wow, they market to EVERYbody these days. There's nothing they haven't thought of.

Is it time to pack yet?

Are you ready? Leaving stuff to the last minute? Need to jabber?

I'm ready, and I can't wait. I'm already NOT SLEEPING due to my excitement. I might as well leave now! I'm beginning to collect my items to be packed in the middle of my dining room floor, and doing the same thing you are...making last-minute trips to various suppliers to see what I need, or what I can't live without!

I'm already packed Kathy! I won't be getting back from Kauai until the 10th and can't leave for Cody until the 12th from Lake Wenatchee. Monday is going to be a long 777 miler. I hope the Troopers are sleepy on Monday morning

God, I noticed the other day I got stuck at the part of the aisle with all the little bottles of shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc.

No matter how long it takes you to get to Cody...all that matters is that you arrive safely.Somehow we've all become attached at the hip and when one of us goes down everyone suffers in some way.

I remember at Gunnison in July 2002 we were worried about a few folks who were running late. Please let others know if you are coming in late. Then we'll keep the lights on and save some pizza. I'll hide Howards little bottle.

We'll be coming in through Jellystone. Hey BOOBOO!

We're not the least bit excited.

I'm hardly even keeping track of the fact that it is 14 days, 11 hours, and 12 minutes until we leave.

Man, when you print it out like that it hardly seems more than a minute away. I'd better pack!

I'm really happy and excited, as for about two month it was in the air if I will make it or not.
I leave earlier then most, next Saturday, 7/3, from work. The way I like to go, it will be the looong way. How about Maryland to Cody via Vancouver?
This weekend the bike gets service and tires. For packing I just pick a few of this and a few of that out of the closet.
For the trip I invested in a new (just recently came out) Jacket. It is the First Gear Kilimandjaro Air. Outer jacket is hip length, mostly mesh with armor. Inner jacket is wind/waterproof, lightly insulated. With that and Gerbing, I should be ok from 40 to 90+.
This is about as much "jabber" as you get from me. I'd like to shut up and start riding away...

Paul, when I told Barbara that you WERE coming to Cody she sure smiled. When I asked her why she was smiling so big she said, "because I will know someone at the your rally". I strongly suspect that before the Rally ends Barbara will have lots and lots of new friends. I'll have to warn you all that Barbara is a hugger. Paul, we fly to Salt Lake the same day that you start your ride. See you there. Some day maybe I hope to be riding fast enough to follow in your tracks.

For some reason I keep thinking that we'll see Kathy R. as she rides through Logan. If Barbara and I see a lady on an RT with Illinois plates, I do intend to ask her if she is Kathy.

See you all there. I'm excited to finally meet and thank all those who have helped me on this board so much, and I am FLYING -- not even riding there

I will be leaving Friday, July 2, for Durango, CO where I will meet up with an old friend who will be coming from Midland, TX. We will spend six days together riding in the four corners area before I head on up to Cody.
The bike is serviced, washed, waxed, and ready to go. The last week is always the hardest.

I will be leaving Durango, CO Sunday morning of July 11 and will spend that night in Rock Springs, WY. The next day I will continue on to Cody via Jackson Hole, Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone. I would be pleased to have someone to ride with from Durango to Cody.

I am so ready to go. I was going to leave home July 10th, but now I am going to head out on the 7th and go up through Utah and Idaho and then zig East through Montana to Cody arriving Sunday or Monday.

If Barbara and I see a lady on an RT with Illinois plates, I do intend to ask her if she is Kathy.


Look for the following:
Dark Blue 2002
Black Kilamanjaro pants and jacket (or silver if it's hot)
Black helmet with bright orange sticker on the front and back telling Good Samaritan's to leave my helmet on (I'm a realist) and Fernando's little white reflective squares in a kind of skunk pattern.

I may not have the prettiest helmet, but y'all shore as heck know it's me!!! And my plate frame says "Kathy - Paper Butt Assoc" WHOO HOO!

Oh and ask anyone if I hug? Anyone whose met me...cripes at Gunnison I was hugging "strangers" as long as they were coming into the campground on bikes. I figured they HAD to be my friends.

Planes, bikes, cars, buggies...who cares how we all arrive...as long as we do safely. I can't believe I missed UN 2. TIGTBSMF!!

I'm headed out of DFW on Friday the 9th. Will be in Paonia for the TOR Rally Saturday. Up in the air on whether I'll stay Sunday night or leave for Cody Sunday A.M.

If I stay and leave Monday A.M., I've got to hustle up about 600mi to meet Miss Vicki's plane that evening. Otherwise, I could piddle up two 300mi days if I leave Sunday A.M.

Probably won't make that decision till I see what kind of fun we're havin' at TOR.

Riding the Bear Tooth Tuesday, so see ya Monday evening or Tuesday morning for sure.

I'm already packed, re-packed, & re-packed, & re-packed...

Didn't ever unpack from our scrubbed trip to Torrey.

Kathy...
Need to jabber?....h*ll ya!!

Go the scoot all broken in, the seat is back from "Rocky" Mayer. All the electrical gear installed and working!!

BTW, DO NOT ever change bikes in the middle of a riding season, what a PITA getting all aspects of the new bike to your liking while under a deadline.
Gonna run the bike all weekend since Barb is working, and I am NOT (finally)!!!
Might even make it to Betty's for some bike chatter this weekend to help alleviate this nervous, excitement building up.

Since we are two up, we are gonna try someone else's idea and ship one box UPS to the Carriage House a week ahead of time. It will contain lots of stuff not needed out or back, and a refill of clothing to swap out. Also lots of warm stuff for the cold mountain riding.
Since we are staying all the time in one place, and radiating our rides from Cody, this UPS idea should just be great.

Since we are riding in via South Dak., probably riding out the Northern route through Teddy Roosevelt Park in N. Dak.(especially if it's hot), and then visit relatives in Fargo (ya sure) on the way home.

I'm gonna be making our list for packing the bike, and also the UPS box this weekend. To make it feel closer, our UPS box will probably be sent out to Cody...oh, in about another week!!!!

If you guys see a dark blue ST13 in front of the Carriage House #23, stop by and say hi! If we don't answer the door however after a couple knocks, remember this is only 2 weeks away from our 30th wedding anniversary!!!!

Would you people PLEASE quieten down!! Some of us have a lot of work (and some riding) to be done before we can leave.

Let's see, left case packed with the same repair/cold/rainy weather stuff all the time. Add a couple o' shirts, underwear and pants; a coat, shoes and shaving kit and I'm ready to go.

Should take 1 hr in the morning July 9th.

Back to work. Work, work, work.

I remember meeting you at the A&W. I introduced myself: "Hi, I'm Mitch Patrie." You shook my hand and kinda smiled at me like "oh, uh, ok..." and then I said "Joe Frickin' Friday," and after a scream of recognition you just about tackled me to the ground with a hug!

Kathy ...
I know exactly what you mean. I head out two weeks from tomorrow. And between then and now I have a ton of things to do at work ... so it is good for me that I have two weeks to get all the stuff done.

I don't want to hijack this thread ... but any of you out there in CyberSpace use Helen 2 Wheels bags, specifically the larger one, send me a private message telling me how you secure it to the bike and specifically the luggage rack on a RT. Seems like it hangs down over the edges.

But back to the topic...I'm looking forward to meeting all of you. This will be my first gathering with you all, and I want you to know I have very high expectations as I've heard great things.

Time is growing short and the list of things left to do is growing long.

Jamie and I will be arriving in Cody a couple of days early to clear up last minute details and play tourist.

We're hoping that as many of you as can will join us Monday evening at the Ponderosa Campground for greetings, hugs and no host pizza. We'll probably be there mid-late afternoon. We're staying in one of the camping cabins.

See all y'all in Cody!!

Wow! I've been gone for the past 2 weeks (ridin' the Smokies) and I'll never catch up on all the posts. I'll be leaving some of the gear packed. No camping for me, I've had a room reserved months ago at the Carriage House for Sunday through Wednesday night. I'll be coming through da U.P., the southern end of the Big Lake scares me.

Fresh tires arriving next week.....
13 days and counting.....

Meeting Steve Kolseth (Grey Dog) on the Columbia the morning of the fifth, and head off to Colorado where we will meet up with Darmahman for some mountain riding. Probably at TOR Friday and up to the UN Monday, have camping reservation at the Ponderosa on the river. I have never been to Cody and I have heard so much about those roads.

I just heard that Colorado is the greenest in years - (remember how dry it was at Gunnison?) - can't wait to see it!!

Ok, JFF, this time you'd better brace yourself real good!

Oh, Tom - I love a good hi-jack... ....I'd suggest you are overstuffing the bag? Put less in it and fold the opening down more maybe, all the while following Helen's method for compressing the bag? Talk to Helen. She'll straighten you out.

Goodness, I can't wait to see you all. I'll be coming up from Vegas with Brian T and Meghan. We should be in Jackson WY Sunday night.

What was planned as a threesome is now a onesome due to attrition, and so I think I'll leave four or five days early and meander around on my way north and arrive in Cody on Sunday at the Carriage House.


Mark T. My bike finally sold. When I picked up the check my wife said, "Oh good, now we can use that for the new sofa we bought." Cold woman.

Ok, I went to the book store today to get a newer less beat up set of maps. I came away with a giant book..in Enlarged Scale. Neat.

What I've done in the past is rip the pages out and use them. Then it dawned on me to just make photo copies of pages from a map book and simply hi-lite the routes I'll be on. After I'm done with those photo copies I toss them.

I've spent the evening studying the state of Nevada, Utah, Western Colorado, SE Idaho and all of Wyoming. I feel like a 4th grader craming for a test.

Oh, yeah . . . maps. I guess I'd better go find some maps or something. I'm so fired up about leaving that my RT and I are all ready to go, but I don't have any maps.

I think I'd be able to find Cody even without a single stinkin map. My RT knows how to find y'all better than my bad navigation skills can. I don't think I'm even going to pick a route out until an hour into my ride 10 days and 3 hours and five or six minutes from now. Perhaps I'll just head north for a bit and then zig-zag east for a while. My RT will take me to the place where there be hugs and friends.

I can't wait to get there and see all my old friends and all the new ones too.

Think my RT is ready? Just check out this picture of fresh new rubber I slipped onto my baby's spare wheel last night! There's something extra sweet about new rubber for a long trip.

Me - last night - NO sleep. Kept thinking of things to add to the already stuffed bags (at least I've done some packing in my head). Actually started making a list in the dark so I wouldn't forget all the things I don't have room for and won't really need.

After a trip down to Cherokee, NC, I'm off to Cody. Look for the green RT, blue/silver Savanah suit, VA plates, & ugly yellow helmet! This will be my first UN so you all have to be nice (sort of).

Then, it's off to Spokane. Maybe I should check-out those multi-day undies you saw at REI.

Can't wait to meet you all!

Cheers and safe travels,

You will all be glad to hear that I have washed my riding jacket for Cody. It is amazing how bad the road smells when it is highly concentrated in the threads of one's jacket. The red is more red than orange now.

Now back to our regularly scheduled thread.

Don't forget about Montana. You'll spend one day up on the Beartooth, just north of Cody. I don't think you'll be going to Colorado this trip.

Other than that, chatter chatter chatter chatter chatter.......

You will all be glad to hear that I have washed my riding jacket for Cody Yes, we are glad to hear that -- but what about your socks!!!

[/hijack]

Spending the days in the garage, hooking up the Autocom at long last, and maybe some new lights. I have new gloves to try out when it gets cold, and a new map of Wyoming, and I've waxed my Buddy three times so the bugs will all slide off...

Fresh synthethic oil in all the places oil should be, the shock install get fixed tomorrow, and I think maybe a new Avon on the front Saturday.

Kathy, should I bring some Pinot and dark chocolate???

YES !!!!!

Don't forget about Montana.

OKEEDOKEE

It is amazing how bad the road smells when it is highly concentrated in the threads of one's jacket.

If you lived in the midwest you could ride in a rainstorm...atleast that is what my ChiTownCrew taught me

hugs? santa never complains...

UN's are all about HUGS

Blessings all over ya:

I'm so glad you are going to make it, even if it's for a bit

This will be my first UN so you all have to be nice (sort of).

The UN is all about nice

I think I'd be able to find Cody even without a single stinkin map.

I'll never forget getting closer to Torrey the first time. Finding Ron B and teaming up for the last 100 miles or so...and as we were stopped for gas...two RT's went by...and we knew...they were with us.

THIS IS GOING TO BE SO MUCH FUN!

I don't get excited easily, but this Un-Rally Thing really got me buzzing. The rooms in the house are littered with stuff to pack. I have a spreadsheet that details the sequence of packing into no less then 8 different locations:
Fairing compartment,
Tank Bag uppper
Tank Bag lower,
Tank Bag Map holder
Baggage Roll,
Top Case
and two side cases.
I bought compression bags, tent, sleeping bag pots and pans,
some new clothing, Garmin GPS, portable radio.....well you get the picture.
Leaving from Toronto on the sixth and taken the Ferry in Muskegon MI to Milwaukee WI on the 7th and then full speed to Cody.
Can't wait to see you all for the first time, hopefully Sunday night (if my butt can handle the 'comfort seat').

Watch for a Silver Streak (no not may hair!)

The easy part is over. The bike is serviced, new tires last week, bags packed and on. Now for the hard part, having to try to concentrate at work until my 3:00 pm departure.
Everyone have a fun, safe ride and I will see you in Cody!

I was busy today - putting on a new set of MEZ6 and packing all my stuff. (Like always - you pack what you don't need and you forget what you need).
I will leave tomorrow morning that will give me some time to discover the beautiful landscape of the northern states where I've never been before.
See you guys at Cody and Spokane.

Kathy,

So we're perusing the registered list of who we met last year, what names we recognize from the board, and just generally feeding our excitment, and notice you're not on the IL,US list. But then find you on the NV,US list.

Bit schizophrenic on where you actually are?

But then Marty Hill registered as from Alberta,CA when his profile says Atlanta,GA. But then we'd expect that from him! Maybe it's a fad we're just not plugged into?

What can I say? I'm forced to fly out to Nevada to ride it on those dang western sweepers.

It's an experiment. It was a generous opportunity that was offered and it suited me. I'm grateful for it. I'll see how it "flys". I can always bring her home. I truely loved riding on the roads out west. We'll see how hard it is for me to leave the RT behind...besides, I'm down to one bike again...and after Cody...I may change that.

I'm no Marty...but I'm older and I do want to have it all.

Kathy, I think you have premature excitement....but as of today, I am gettting REALLY stoked. It is Tuesday and I know that in four short days, I'm going for a ride. I just had the 24k done. New Tires. New brakes. The K12 is running better than it EVER has. That bike just gets better and better. I think the engine is FINALLY getting broken in. It seems like there is a substantial amount of additional power with having the valves done.

OH, BOY OH BOY OH BOY!!!!

Looking forward to me hugs. I know I was promised a BUNCH when I showed up.

    1. New shocks installed correctly

    2. New front tire

    3. New rear brakes

    4. Autocom installed and working


Maybe, if I'm orderly, organized, and efficient, new lights on the RS. (OK, maybe no lights)

I'm printing name tags, and I have this BIG picture of all the people I'll see in less than a week.

Checking the maps, I'm thinking of all the places I'll ride through on the way to Cody - stuff I've never seen before!

Trying to remember what to bring...

Camera
New Gloves
Hugs
Smiles

First a note for Ken - I sent you a PM - but incase I'm confusing others - I keep my RT in Nevada. I've got my own fly and ride program.
And Ron is referring to a common phrase in Chicago; "Vote Early and Vote Often"

Ok, now what a WEIRD way to pack. Since I am flying to Vegas to load up my bike for the ride to Cody... I had to rethink how to pack. AND there is more of a danger of forgetting something since I'm not loading the bike, yet.

I think I devised a good system of checks and balances. I actually packed my bag liners, just as if I were getting on the bike. Without camping gear it sure gives me the luxury of space on the bike.

I've closed my eyes and looked in my virtual tank bag for what I need to have with me. I may have been off my RT for a long distance ride for a while, but just thinking about packing it ...it all comes back...and with it all the excitement.

To my SO, Dave, this is all a mystery. He was facinated with the Hoon Cooler...and was asking questions "What's this for?" "What's that do?"

Do we have a secret handshake?

I told him we just "Hug"

I can't wait to launch....I will have two this time...one from Chicago and the real one, from Gleno's Garage Mahal on Friday evening...WHOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO

Kathy,
Don't obsess over being sure to pack everything. What you forget, Gleno will probably have. What he doesn't have, you probably don't need. If you do need it, you can always buy it.

But just in case, be sure to put on all the riding clothes you would typically wear to be sure you don't forget any of them (gloves, boots, helmet, jacket, pants, sunglasses, regular glasses/contacts, etc.). Extra keys. License, reg, insurance card. CD player and CDs. FRS, if you have one. Camera. Money. Wallet, and always pack it in the appropriate place! Contact phone numbers.

Jeez! That's a lot of stuff to remember and to take.

See you on Sunday. Can't wait to get that "secret handshake."

I don't know why in the heck I'm sitting here reading through this thread. I guess I wasn't depressed enough about the fact that I won't be making this trip, after planning for it since it was announced!

I'm so envious...

I hope everyone has a superb trip!

Travel safely!

Yo -- Kathy is flying from far away Chicago, enduring airport security, and all those other airplane things. Arriving in swletering Las Vegas to pick up the RT she hasn't seen for a bit. Then, she's going on a longer bike ride than she's been able to fit in for a while. You should be baking cookies for Kathy!

SOME OF US are happy just to have her company!!!

I guess I wasn't depressed enough about the fact that I won't be making this trip, after planning for it since it was announced!

It's ok to torture yourself. I did it for the last UN. I went on the reconnaissance mission with Jake and Emerson to scope Eureka Springs out and then I never made it!!

We'll see you next time. Torrey is just a few months away and you aren't unemployed. See, I feel better already.

IF I were to make cookies...

1/4 of them would go to the airlines for an upgrade
1/4 of them wouldn't make it out of Gleno's house
1/4 of them wouldn't make it out of Jackson WY
1/4 of them wouldn't make it past the bears in Jellystone

But my gear would smell real good for a looonnnnggg time afterwards!

All I might have with me is a super warm Powerbar. Sorry

Lanester!!!! I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!! See you SO SOON!

Yo -- Kathy is flying from far away Chicago, enduring airport security, and all those other airplane things. Arriving in swletering Las Vegas to pick up the RT she hasn't seen for a bit. Then, she's going on a longer bike ride than she's been able to fit in for a while. You should be baking cookies for Kathy!






So I suppose having Kathy bring pizza to the UN from UNos would be out of the question?

1/4 of it wouldn't make it out of the restaurant
1/4 of it wouldn't make it out of the condo

If anyone is coming from Philadelphia I seriously want a cheesesteak. I'll share the secret handshake and my Chocloate Chip Cookies mix.

Wow, I feel much, much better! Thanks for helping me get my head on straight!

You know...I hadn't considered Torrey... One more place that I haven't been, and want too!

Da Shovel is abut 10 hours and a good nights sleep out. At the HI in Chamberlain SD. Guestimate about 600 miles to Cody, all of it slab except the last 100 or so. Jeez, I hate square tires!!

See you all tomorrow, eta is about 1800 mountain time.

Just as every skill is improved by practice, so also is every bad habit made worse by repetition.

Not a problem on the Pizza. I have plenty of reserve on board.

If the beer is gone there will be an explosion.

See you tonight.
