I gave her a long look, taking in the dozens of pins and patches proclaiming her piety, and decided I didn't want to camp that close to her.

    Only in the South. I wouldn't have camped by her either, except she would realize I needed Jesus.
    At our first National, the wise guy at registration would not stop making light of my southern drawl. He just kept on & on & on. I am not a sensitive gal, and can take a joke easily, but this guy pushed my button and I finally told him to just STFU already, and he did.

    Your welcome to camp next to me any time you wish Pete. And Gail, y'all welcome to camp there too.

    My mother in law was from Ripley, I learned early Mississippi that women are delightful until crossed.

    I'm thinking north. We've recently had rallies in Oregon and Montana, so Idaho or Washington, with Wyoming as a possible contender..?

    I can’t speak for AZ, but there are places in Utah where people have died from hypothermia and exposure in June and July. Just sayin’.

    Back in about 2015 or so I submitted a UT location that would be far cooler and grassier in June and July—the Golden Spike Event Center near Ogden. Website at http://goldenspikeeventcenter.com, satellite view available at https://goo.gl/maps/D6Qja9Rn6ot. HOG and other Motorsports groups have held events there in the past.

    Instead, we ended up in the sweltering sea of concrete that is downtown SLC.

    But, I understand how those things happen as conflicts with dates, MOA site requirements for sizing, motel availability, beer concessions, entertainment, etc. etc. etc are possible. And as I stated earlier, sites like this are commonly booked out at least 2-3 years in advance. Ogden in June of 2023 would be a very pleasant camping and rallying experience. Maybe even better than Fargo!

    Best,

    Vegas.

    We would not even be a blip on their events, they could take us all in so easy. No grass, but it is Vegas, who needs grass. Buildings big enough to keep all the vendors and members for the MOA, Gold Wing, Hog and any other 2 wheel events at the same time with room left over. Nice race track to hold the riding school. And, once you clear the city, there is some interesting riding.
    It's not hot because there is NO HUMIDITY!

    Just think when the beemers take over Fremont Street.

    Note: I am only about half way joking here. It could be a rally to remember. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Besides there has to be something to complain about.

    Lightbulb Speculation and Prediction for 2020 Western MOA Rally Site...

    Like maybe riding through Fargo... en-route to SANTA FE, New Mexico... in mid JUNE 2020!

    My guess is made... what's yours?

    The First correct guess could collect special recognition at that Rally and a free evening beverage... or something.

    Time for a game of speculation and prediction... from now until end of March.

    In that case, Reno could also be a good choice.

    Yes, I just had this funny image of 4 grey hairs in roadcrafters doing the aerial wires over Fremont street.

    Been to most of the Nationals since 2003 and the only one I really hated was Lima OH. Hot and too freaking dusty. Favorite by far was West Bend!👍

    But being retired I look forward to heading West from Charlotte.

    Do folks really think Nashville in mid June is going to be any cooler than Salt Lake or Des Moines was??🤭🤭

    I thought the venue and facilities in both Salt Lake and Des Moines were great.
