Back at home at around 6.30. Great ride accompanied by Angel. I81 at one spot was more stop than go, so we got off and found some other roads. Matt and Shawn and all the volunteers, big thanks for a great event!

Adding my thanks to Shaun, and the whole UN team. This was my first UN Rallye and it was more and better than I imagined.

Of course the roads and setting were fantastic, but the Inn, the food, the views, and the "gemutlichkeit" were also great.

It was my first UN and I look forward to more great times and new friends in the future.

Will post a few pics tomorrow.

I can't wait for another event! smile

Shawn

Back in the barn about 930.

Thanks to you too, Shawn.

This was a great event and it was very rewarding to share "our" mountains with so many of you.

Thanks for coming along!

Home at 8:00 after 550 mostly-backroad miles.

What a great time this past week was! Great to see so many people I don't get to see very often.

I'll post pics when I finally get them uploaded to the computer.

Home about 8:30 pm my time... 450+ miles; 12 hrs +\-
Had a great day leading Foot through the twisties (musta been doing something right, 'cause everytime I offered to let him get in front be declined!). But was glad for the company!

To my old friends... Thank you thank you thank you for the warm welcome, big hugs and soothing my very chafed soul!

To the new friends I made this trip... Thank you for ignoring my ADD, introducing yourselves and making this trip even better than I had hoped!!

(And Tewks... Thanks for starting this check in thread!)
