West Bend was completely awesome, and Lima in 2005 was pretty great. I only missed Vermont in 2006 due to mechanical failure enroute (spent the weekend in Toronto so it was not a Total Loss).
So I've been thinking I would just go to all of them from here on out. But Gillette is a two day ride from Chicago. It is just too far.
I love Wyoming and would go in a heartbeat if I could get more vacation days off, but alas, I can't blow that much of my time-off wad for one event.
(Although as a flat-lander it would be much more attractive to me if the rally was actually IN the mountains.)
I also love the camping at the rallies, so the inflated motel rate issue is not a problem for me.
