    Food Vendors at Rally site

    Hi, this will be my first MOA Rally.

    I've looked everywhere I can think of, including searching the "Rally" section, FAQs and the forum, but I can't find any reference to who will be providing food at the fairgrounds? what type, how much, etc.

    Anyone have a link to that or any information?

    Thanks!

    Chris?

    Hope you're riding that GS to Hayfork camp July14th! FOOD? The rallies usually have LOTS to pick from on site. Last two years was so. Fast foods to some really good stuff. Maybe they will give us a list here. Of course Salem is a capitol city with zillions of eating out options here. I understand the need for on site too, as MANY like the never leave the rally site eating and drinking. You party hard, stay in rally and enjoy. Its funny you ask, because some rallies, we've even had (local gov't)rules of engagement for food vendors to show up!!! I think Redmond was one and this is OREGON again? I hope the fairgrounds in Salem has good views in this regard, let us eat on site? A good question, lets hear an answer for SALEM! Randy

    On the road?

    You and Barley on the road? You had mentioned the RA Rally earlier? See ya in Salem. NOW, Just how does Barley EAT on the road? I'd like to hear how and what you carry for him. Does he have a range in miles, before stopping? Always been fascinated by animals on the road on bikes. Randy

    Randy - we're starting out next Thursday, the 4th of July. Keeping an eye on the weather as our planned route looks horrible this week; hopefully it will clear before we hit the road. If not, well, we've been known to show a bit of flexibility in reaching our destination. Plus if the conditions are really bad and I feel my dog is not enjoying himself, I have no problem finding a nice campsite in the Rockies and just spending our vacation there. But Salem is the goal.

    I carry about ten days worth of his regular kibble when we travel, and mail more to pitstops along the way so I can replenish every week or so. That's so Barley's tummy isn't upset by a sudden change in diet. But I'm not sure if it's worth the bother. Afterall, Barley kills and eats any snake or rodent he can get his fangs into, any people food he can guilt out of the people we meet, and here at home even cleans up after the sheep and chickens. His tummy seems pretty rock solid. I also share bits of my food with him. At Sedalia we shared soft-serve ice cream in the heat of the day.

    His range varies by conditions. In rain, I zip up his side windows and take more frequent breaks because it's not as much fun being completely enclosed. In high heat we take frequent hydration breaks and practice the tenets of desert warfare training I learned in the Marines. The principles work on dogs too! On a good day we're on the road up to 14 hours, with several breaks and at least one nap of an hour or so. Like most BMW riders, when I feel my game slipping I take a rest stop. The highest mileage in a single day for us was when we left Sedalia at 4am with the goal of reaching more moderate temps to the east. We stopped for the day in Zanesville OH, which was just over 650 miles. We still had some miles in us, but after witnessing three road rage incidents on the Ohio Interstate, I thought discretion the better part of valor.

    But traveling with Barley is about sharing the joy of life. If we see an interesting spot we stop. There are flowers to pee on, you know.

    Okay..that's some funny stuff right there! I'm working late tonight and that made me laugh out loud.

    Met Barley and his owner last year in the A/C at Sedalia. Wish I could do the same this year but Salem is not going to work so off to Paonia for Top of the Rockies instead.

    Have a safe and enjoyable ride!

    Hope Salem works:)

    Once in the West, you'll be fine with temps ranging all over the board. You probably know this already. We have much diverse riding conditions out here, from cold high peaks to desert hot to high desert and rains. ALL good. Our rains are not like yours at all, as we DRY so quick after a downpour in this dry Western clime. Barley probably enjoys the difference too. Hope you make the crossing to Salem. I too, have been to all recent national rallies, never crossed paths. Visit us in GS Giants camp. Promise Ill find something for Barley to EAT or treat on I'm also on a ranch here at home, with critters everywhere...Randy
