It's time to start working on UnRally XIII. It'll take place in less than a year (June/July-ish of 2014), and there's lots to cover.

Volunteer your ideas.

Volunteer your locations.

Volunteer to help.

But best of all, Volunteer To Organize, To Lead, To Make A Difference.

Now just to be clear, this is just an idea for a geographic location. As far as volunteering goes, I'll lead any silly ass New Englander that's willing to follow me. rofl

Maybe everyone is on holidays?

To get the serious discussion started though, lets's hear ideas:

Western UnRallies are a long trip for many board members, and often require more then a couple of days travel to get there and get home.

What week? Is it important to have it the week before or after the BMWMOA Rally (July 24-27 in St. Paul, MN) so people can catch that coming or going? Is it better in June before the roads get crowded?

Do members want to go back to a previous site (Gunnison, Salida, Cody, John Day, Topaz Lake) or someplace completely new?

What is the price point for a hotel/motel?

How important is gravel road access for members?

How important is convenient camping?

Some suggestions of newer sites could be Montana, Idaho, Washington or the Black Hills of SD (but not July please, too hot).

How important is to make a decision before September for individuals that need to put 2014 Holiday requests in early? October? November?
