    Voni's Views of the Rally

    First I have to thank Karol Patzer and Deb Lower for heading up the planning for the rally in St. Paul.
    I'm not sure how they could have done better. It was fantastic in every detail.

    Rather than play with pictures during the rally, I waited till after the rally and uploaded them sorted by day.

    Enjoy!

    Here's Tuesday and Wednesday:

    We were busy having a great time morning to night and didn't get to see half of the people I wanted to or do half of the fun stuff! Hat's off!

    It was a great rally and there was not enough time to share all pictures! Karol and Deb did a fantastic job and we all benefited from their efforts. Thank You Karol, Deb, and all of the volunteers for making this a great experience! I look forward to Billings. MT in 2015!!!

    Ride it like you stole it!!!!!

    Voni,
    Thank you for sharing your photos. I was fairly busy with the Hospitality Booth and hardly took any photos. I was hoping to find yours posted on this forum. You took some great ones.

    Tue - Wed

    - you and Paul picked the primo campsite
    - I see you're riding Big Red again
    - O'Gara's looks like a happening place; very nice venue

    Sat - Sun

    - looked to be a rocking concert
    - the diehard in the yellow hat refuses to leave
    - it's always sad to see everybody going home.

    I got my Voni-hug from St Paul. Always makes my rally.

    I've never met another rider who lights up a room like you do Voni. It was great to see you and Paul again
    Enjoying the ride, but always on the alert for a rally.......

    My pleasure!

    Sure was great to see so many great friends! And to teach newbies our "secret handshake"!!

    On the road now so I'm not checking the forum as much. A cousin reunion in Bismarck, ND is next and then it's off to Nakusp, BC for the most amazing rally!

    See you on the road!

    P.S. We did get the BEST campsite with running water and electricity very near. But then there were LOTS of BEST campsites at this rally!

    P. P. S. Yes, Big Red is back on the road once more. Showing 362,000 sMiles so that means she's over 370,000! Flawless!
