    You folks are cruel.
    Talking about the National so soon...only 500miles from my place AND I get to ride through the Adirondacks! I will be thinking about this all winter.
    On second thought, you people are not that cruel! This will help with winter cabin fever.
    No rallys for me in 2010, but the National in 2011. Cool.

    Oregon isn't far enough west for you?? It was a spectacular 3 week cross-country journey for us from the Toronto area. While we LOVE the travelling, we're looking forward to a closer destination next year, and being able to use some of our vacation time for 'other' riding...PEI maybe...

    According to the Bloomsburg fairgrounds it is, because the weeks before and after are filled with other venues.

    You may wish to put in for the whole week since there are pre-rally events being planned, or come help us setup.

    That's why I mentioned in another thread that the date should be flexible to ensure a great venue.
    Picks from June through August would facilitate the needs of most members.

    WHO's actrually going from?

    THE FAR WEST? I live on the west coast of CA and am planning on riding East again. Did Vermont and Tennessee, W.VA,so PA. is next). I ride a GSA1200 and find the offbeaten paths(even dirt) most probable when I can. I usually take three weeks+ for an East coast adventure, but have done it in two. Anybody on this long milers list from my end of the world, to PA.,2011? I like meeting folks that can ride my style of riding and even not, maybe a day or so enroute. My departure almost always goes through Yosemite NP, into Nevada and so on and I have yet to ride Canada on this bike, so I may go NorthEasterly to PA.. Meet up somewhere on the road??? I'm always up for some riding together, a while anyways. Randy"Polarbear"Owens,GSA1200, off and on road warrior.

    Polar bear

    Way too early to say but pre-rally events and opportunities are in the works. One of the ideas is to create and post GS Rides that run parallel to the pavement routes to the rally site. I quess they could begin anywhere and run any distance. The GS Chairs would like to see a sign up list, a competitive event that rewards folks for visits to points of interest and saying hello to our vendors. Maybe a kickoff could begin at various west, north and south starting points and grow to Bloomsburg. I wouldn't mind seeing a IBR type setup where you must take pictures of points of interest with bonus point opportunities for a mountain pass or a Pony Express Monument sign along the way.

    Since you wish to go to Canada I guess I can throw in a bonus round and have you take a picture of Brother Andre's Chapel in Montreal, for additional points you can get me some cheese in the eastern townships and on your way to get me cheese in Vermont...I mean your southern trip to Pa........you can stop at Emerson Motor Works to say hi..

    FYI, here's a list of B&Bs in the the beautiful state forest area 40-50 miles north of Bloomsburg. Here are a few photos I took there week before last:

    Rooms at the Hampton Inn in Bloomsburg and the Comfort Suites both showed as unavailable when I tried to register online.

    I booked rooms at the Hampton Inn in Williamsport, since the rides we want to take will be west of the Bloomsburg area. Williamsport is about 40 miles west of Bloomsburg.

    I just finished a nine day trip to WV, OH, PA and NY and traveled down route 15 through Williamsport, so I got a flavor for that area.

    It may be worth it for folks to book early, if the rooms are all being taken now.

    All the rooms may be blocked for the rally.
    If you're booking online that would prevent you from getting a room.
    call the motel directly and ask about avalibility.
