    Rally Central

    This shows you the top "half" of the rally grounds.....due to our attempt to maintain a 7' spacing between tents no campers experienced overcrowding. There was plenty of space, and if you didn't mind riding your bike TO the events, you had an opportunity for more of a "camping" experience instead of overcrowded neighborhoods. The grounds permitted folks to camp anywhere there was grass and trees, provided we met the DPH "guidelines" There were tents in areas that weren't even designated as camping. Everyone I spoke with seemed to be HRG (happy rally goers)

    When I first arrived at the rally on Monday morning and they started telling everyone about the 7' rule, I thought, yeah right, try enforcing that one, but was pleasantly surprised to see it enforced all rally long. It was nice to have a community camping experience and not a ghetto camping experience. Probably the best organized rally out of the last three that I've had the pleasure to attend. Two thumbs up to the folks that put it together, as I know it is a full time job to coordinate all the little nuisances that no one ever sees while attending, but have to be completed to make everything work out......
    I can't believer the week has come and gone already, so it was one of the fastest rally's yet for me... Now on to the U.P. for another week of adventure.....:-)
