Well crap...!  It looks like I'm out on this one :(...other family obligations...

If you have a night free Brad just ride over eat & hang a bit. No need to register for that & you're close enough.

Registration is moving along nicely, only 4th day open & 12 signed up!  Shaping up to have more women here this year, looking like there maybe around 10.  :great:

If demand gets pretty high maybe one should buy a couple of extra spots for resale at a profit. Scalping rally tickets, who'd a thunk it?

Now that's thinking outside the box. We could stand at the end of Cliffs driveway with the rally tickets in our hand and be like, "Get your rally tickets right here".

Got the days off work for this event approved today.  I'll be staying in a motel.  Does anyone here know anything about the Hilltop motel...reviews???
I've read some reviews..., some okay and others questionable.  So I thought I'd ask here because I'm sure this group is more reliable than the internet.   :D

Thanks

Look forward to having you & I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy it.  :)

I'll try help out on hotel. It is about 10 - 12 years old & was built as a independent hotel, has always been Hilltop Inn. I have been in the lobby & the breakfast room, they look fine to me. From the outside it looks pretty average/ordinary. The area is safe you don't have to worry about your bike or anything. They do have rooms you can park in front of. No ones ever complained about it here. Ted (connierider) & Jim Snyder have stayed there, only names I can think of. PM them for a opinion.

I'm not a hotel person, but I wouldn't have any problem staying.

If you have anymore questions I'll try to answer them.

Cliff (and others) have slowly shamed us into camping so we'll be in a tent {Trump Tower}.
If I wimp out, I'll be in the hilltop too.

We've stayed in the Hilltop a couple of times. {Once because the my tent had an inch of rain water in the floor}.
It's an older motel, and not a Hilton, but clean and neat.
The people that own it are great.

Double “beverage” holder {??}

Ride safe, Ted

Last year I took a beer into the shower (ya know, a shower beer), the bench seat is not flat, I said something to Cliff. He said if I sent him a beverage holder, he would install it in the shower, so I did. A rather nice double beverage holder, ya know, if it’s a two shower beer or if you have a shower buddy ( I try not to judge). He said he would install it “if he held the rally again”. So, here we are.

Ted and I stayed at the Hilltop several years ago and it was fine. We tent camped two years ago and stayed in a motorhome last year. However this year we will have a slight different setup.

Nope, still sitting on the bench. Thought I might let you have the honors & pick the location. It is a very nice one though!   :beerchug:

This inquiring mind wants to know who you're gonna shower with to need a double holder. Roman?  :rotflmao: :nananana: :rotflmao: :nananana: :rotflmao:

All right, I can be at HMR #6. Just got back from the oncologist and as of now, there's no need to start chemo yet. My lab test showed progression of the disease, but not to the level that requires treatment. Finally some good news. I do have the issue of the DVT and blood clots in both lungs, but no chemo! I don't have to go back for lab testing, scans and ultrasounds for three more months. All I have to do is give myself shots of blood thinners in the stomach for the next three months. I can ski, exercise and ride! Life is great!

I'll get my registration today. I don't want to have to beg for tickets at the end of Cliff's driveway. Hopefully the snow here in MN will be gone by late April. We got another nine inches yesterday and more is on the way this weekend. I'm putting lots of miles on the snowblower.

Looking for ward to seeing everyone. Cliff, I have new tires on the FJR so there will be no doubt I can get there and make it home.

I sacrificed a sunny perfect 55* Sunday to start piling wood instead of riding.  :campfire: Hopefully I can have this to a respectable size by May. Got a ways to go though.
