It looks like I've got a "go" on this already. My wife this morning posted this on the Book of Faces along with a picture of the nearby Presbyterian retreat (she's a minister like Rev):

"Ed's motorcycle rally is in Kerrville, TX next year. I will go with and surely head to Mo Ranch. I miss this special place."

I suspect that we'll trailer so we can swap off driving. I'm OK with that. It'll give her wheels to make her side trip.
Ed, MoRanch is a special place to us as well.  My wife was Executive Administrative Assistant to the President (what a title) there for 10 years that David Jordan was the president.  In fact, if you call Mo Ranch, it's still her voice that answers the phone system though she's been gone from there for around 9 years.  The current president was my roomie in seminary at Austin too.  My wife can outrun anyone on that road. LOL

I'm looking at flights, too. For the wife, for the wife!! Closest airport is San Antonio, 63 miles. Now, just gotta figure how to get her from the airport to Kerrville (and back!). Haven't decided yet if I'm gonna ride out or, GASP!, trailer.  :-\ Don't hate me...at least I plan to be there!

Oh yeah, the only National I've missed since '07 was Cortez. And they all were hot (warmish) except Frisco ('08). Even Tomah,WI had 104 heat indexes!
Eddie, the cheapest way I can think of is to get her an Enterprise Rent A Car at the airport.  She can return it in Kerrville for the week and then get another to return if she wants.  They are pretty reasonable.  No one could make the trip to get her much cheaper.  But if that's what someone wants, I'm betting it can be figured out.  I might be able to help.  My wife will be there with her car I'm sure and that is our old stompin' grounds (lived in Kerrpatch for 20 years almost). There's always a way.

Rental car? Doh, why didn't I think of that? Hmmm... I sense the start of a plan! Thanks, Chuck.

We and others will be passing thru San Antonio on the way there...
We could squeeze 1 or 2 in the truck. I'm sure others can too..
Several COGgers live in the San Antonio area too.

As we get closer, I'm sure we can figure something out.

Ride safe, Ted

I'll mention that to her. Small world, but I guess I should not be surprised since Laurie spent over 20 years in Texas, with most of that in San Antonio. She was Laurie Spencer then, and was married to Blake Spencer, another minister. Don't know if either of those names ring a bell to you or your wife.

I just told Dolores about this and she said she'd love to take Laurie to Mo. She says those names sound familiar but doesn't really know them.  The pastor and associate at Kerrville are good friends.  I gave up a position at FPCkerrville so that Rob could be hired back in 03 (I was going to seminary in 04 anyway) and then I took the associate on mission trips when she was in middle and high school before that time.  I told her I figured she'd go to seminary some day... now she's back there as a pastor.    :D

We'll be packing up the Rollin' Ramada and heading to the national in 2018. Hopefully the younger crew will be with us as well. We can't miss the get together with Snarf and wife and maybe some on the NE crew. We've missed one rally in the last several years in Idaho because we were closing on our house. Heck, Blaise made the 25th Anniversary rally less than one week after his radiation treatments.   :great:  Rallies are our destination vacations now!

Gonna try to make this one.  Shoulder may not be better for fall, so I'll save my money for this one.  First National for me.

Old Man are you riding?  Trailering?  Flying?  I will be riding and I need some good routes from about Las Cruces down to Kerrville.
