As usual, great rally hosted by Cliff and Jimmy and family.

But what an absolutely crappy ride home. It rained on us from Conway to east of Birmingham, we got a short reprieve until Atlanta, then the rain started again with the wind. Got home at 830p, and 11 hour ride. If Kay didn't have to be at work I would have stopped short and over nighted.

Looking forward to seeing some of you in a few days.

Saw that on the weather channel. The Carolina Conclave folks dodged that, except maybe Tom Sills who had to ride west into it this morning.  Glad you made it back okay.

I’ll agree with Kurt, the rally was great. Cliff and family did a great job putting on the rally. It was too bad the great bonfire got rained out Saturday night. At least we had three days of great riding.
The rain sucked on the ride back to Alabama. I rode most of the way work Kurt & Kay, thanks for leading the way. The farther east we got the harder it rained. I need better gear, I was soaked  when I got home. Thanks one & all for a great rally.

It was too bad the great bonfire got rained out Saturday night. At least we had three days of great riding.

Only one wet night was a good thing. Everyone got to ride all they wanted. The 5 layover refugees & I did light that fire Sunday night. I'll see if I can get some pictures up later.

We had a great time! Thanks to everyone that came & made this event what it is. They're were several that pitched in here & there, thank you.

A big thanks to Jeff & Joanne Kerkow for providing dinner for the 8 or 9 of us that were here Wed. night. Also to Jim Snyder for volunteering to write a article for the Concouier.  :great:

As usual I always say this year is the last year, we'll see.

The pleasure was all ours. Thank you so much Cliff and your family and friends.  It is great that you do this for COG. To me it also shows what a wonderful group of family and friends that you have. It is wonderful that they are willing to come over every year to help with rally and put up with this eclectic group of people.

Excellent weekend, rally and riding.  Thanks to Cliff and everyone involved.
Even though I was a wimp and headed out Saturday I still think I made the right choice for me.  I got to ride all day again in Ar hills.  I was able to scrape the crust from two days of camping off, have a nice meal and sleep in a warm bed.  Then Sunday I was able to get home faster and dry. So worth it.
Thanks again.

Well, better late than never. Many thanks to the Burnette family for a great weekend..We really missed not having the "big" fire Saturday night, but managed to have a good time anyway.  C'mon Cliff, you know number 6 has to go on!!!!

Enjoyed myself too, though I had to bail out early on Saturday morning.    Will try to make it a longer event next time.   :beerchug:

Amazing time.  Didn't freeze but almost.  Didn't get wet but almost.  Great food, fires and folks.  Oh yea and great roads.  Also thanks to the troopers that were on roads other than the ones I was on.  Cliff you and your family are truly appreciated for all the work you put in.  I know this is where you say you didn't do much but the outcome proves otherwise. 

What really makes this year special is the age old question of how many COGr's it takes to change a tire has been definitively answered.

I was able to meet the South Dakota Refugee COGr's and a couple of wayward Texans after Cliffs and we spent the rest of the week acting like we know how to ride.  Rain, fog and sunshine but every day was a good one.  We were lead by the most interesting man in the world.  His identity is a secret.  Rumors abound.

Thanks again to Cliff, Jimmie and the Burnett family for a wonderful time in the Ozarks. I hung around and bothered them for the whole week until new left for Carving the Cumberlands rally.
