    Lose some to possible heat, and lose some to other commitments. No single date will work for everyone.

    I look forward to riding to this one too,

    I don't think any location could be hotter than Salt Lake City national. I kept tells g myself that the low humidity would make up the difference but mostly it just dehydrated me quicker even with extra hydration. Looking forward to the calendar change to stay out of the July heat!

    Somebody missed Bloomsburg, obviously.

    I was going to hit Salt Lake City on my way back from Alaska last July, but my son was getting ready to deploy so I decided to head to Colorado Springs and see him that week instead.

    So, I missed it... Did they have any flaming cars in SLC?

    I was in both Bloomsburg AND Salt Lake. Salt Lake was balmy compared to Bloomsburg. But as I have been saying ... IT IS JULY! Heck the rally in Vermont was in the 90's! Who knew? You can't predict weather. But I do like the June date change!

    There is certainly no expectation of "cool" in that area of Tennessee in June next year. Even today, thirty days before the Rally date of June...
    it was a hot day there.
    One of those 89 degree days, that feels like 93 because of the "H" word.

    May we buck the norm...

    Cool One Year from today....

    Its Day 1 of the Rally in Tennessee. And if we "were to have" the current weather conditions/forecast there... let's just say it's definitely summertime!

    And not unlike July. Hazy, Hot & Humid all week there.

    Today: Currently 75F The high near 89F Humidity 94% Mostly cloudy, very little air moving & 10% chance of rain.

    Friday: low 67F high 93F

    Saturday: low 72F high 95F

    Sunday: low 72F high 93F

    Sure wish'n we were going to _______ (your choice here; example: Fargo) in June 19'

    ...not complaining, just say'n

    It is SUMMER and we are talking about the WEATHER! Just got home from Americade in Lake George NY and while cool temps are expected in Lake George we had 60's nearly all the way home through PA, WV and VA. Even rolling into my driveway on Tuesday in Charlotte it was high 70's! But forecast for Sunday is 97!! You just can't plan the weather since mother nature has her own ideas.

    As long as we are voting for hot, I think Sedalia Mo deserved a runner up. Now the fairgrounds there were very excellent, and cool places to hide were abundant. However it took me 4 bottles of water to get my tent stakes in. That is taking advantage of cracks in the earth.

    I did not do Bloomsberg or Salt Lake so I can only imagine.

    And I still had a good time.

    And THAT is a given no matter what the location! Amen to that!

    It takes all types to make this world go 'round. I, personally, cannot go in June. Although TN is the perfect ride/spot for me, my kids are in school and I cannot (do not want to) be gone.

    No problem with the early announcement, the spot, or really anything else sans the month change. In July I could have gone. June, I cannot.

    Never thought about how much heat those cars would push out... until I got bbq'ed that evening. And I was sitting up top!

    Yes, Bloomsburg was oppressively hot. Rally just happened to coincide with a major east coast heat wave.

    I'll take our oven like heat over the Eastern's sauna conditions any day of the week.
