Your notes a little confusing.
  Happened to meet them there, or were riding with them?
   Wet from Rain or sweat?

See you Sunday.   :great:

Ride safe, Ted

Putting new shoes (Dunlop Road Smart III's) on before I head out to the rally tomorrow.  Sucks to have to pay someone to do it.

Hey Jerry - If you’re taking US 69, when you pass by the EconoLodge in McAlester, OK, give a beep and a wave.  I have a 1 inch cut on the rear tire of my C14 and I think I’m going to be stuck here until I can get a new rear tire.   >:( :'(

I'm sorry, but I didn't see this until I was already here in Kerrville. I did see the other post about your troubles, but it looked to me like you were asking local people about a solution to your tire problem, and being from out of town myself, could not offer any positive comment, or knowledge. I do hope you find a tire tho. I remember having been in a similar predicament years ago during the "Ride the Divide", but I was able to find a tire for my C10 in Loveland, CO.

Good luck!

Got back home in DFW yesterday a little after 4 - an easy ride in the country.

Enjoyed seeing old friends and meeting some new ones!

Great job by all the rally staff - your efforts are appreciated.

I'm not sure if there will be an official photos thread or not, until that is determined, here are my meager offerings.

Also made it back in Saturday evening.

Thanks to Fred, Craig, Pamela, Dan, Doug, Marty, Butch, Eddie, and anyone I missed who contributed so much of their time and hard work to making this rally a success.

Also thanks to everyone attending for letting me fire flashes in your face, crawl over you, and in general be a pest to get pictures for the Concourier and for you. All my pictures (including the extras and some outtakes) are available on my SmugMug site, https://edpalmer.smugmug.com/COG/National-2018. You are free to download any of these for your own use, but please credit me if you share them anywhere. If the filename is of the form 20180610-COG_National-JES_1234.jpg, the credit goes to Jorge Silva instead. My files will have EMP instead of JES. Also note that I may restrict downloading certain files to retain rights for publication.

If you have pictures you would like to add to the collection, PM or email me and I'll give you an upload link.

Great photos ED!

Here are a couple of videos. I hope somebody got better ones, I didn't get all of the second song, it might have been better than the first one. I'm not sure why that guy (screen name rhymes with "Got No Mild Jerky") keeps covering the back of his head, doesn't he know that it's his best side?  ;D

Song One

Song two {partial}
