Another Coolest Rally under my belt.... and long johns, and 3 long sleeve shirts, and a fleece jacket, and a wind breaker.
Temps definitely were a bit on the 'nippy' side for a good bit of the rally, but the cold and rain did not deter the hundreds
of great folks from the BMWNEF, as well as the COG contingency.

For those 'crazy brave' that stuck out the freeze warning and camped Saturday Night, Kudos!  A fair share of folks
decided to beat feet to warmer lodgings, with under 400 served at Saturday Nights Steak Dinner... To those COGgers
that had the common sense to get out of the cold, It was breezy and 33*F Sunday morning... can't blame ya!

Great hangin' out with everyone!  We have a great group of people, and I treasure the good times I get to share with them.

Great to see ya Al, seems N.E. Patriots came through better than Mother Nature  :great:...  BTW, none of us won any door prizes. (Sorry Jo...)  :(

Fais!!  Great to finally meet Ewa...  lovely young lady.  Spoil her rotten!   :beerchug:   Congrats!


Edit to Add:  Jorge!!  You're awesome!  Thanks for the wings!!! AND thank you both for driving us hooligans to town
for lunch!!  Good Eats!!  A great afternoon!!

Jean and I had a great time, great seeing everyone again.   :beerchug:

It was a little nipply last night but those hand warmers in the sleeping bag early made for a toasty night, until I had to get up  >:(

I look forward to the next gathering and Marty thanks for helping put up our new tents without reading the instructions   :D

Irene, those cinnamon rolls were great and really did the trick Saturday morning  :great:  thanks

It was fun, even if a little on the brisk side.
Yes, we bailed late Saturday night, but we were glad we did, but we missed Sunday morning with the group.
Here's one for ya... Saturday night on my way home was tied for the 2nd coldest I have ever ridden. Thermometer showed 32 at one point. I had on so many layers I felt like an onion, but stayed warm.
The photos only show a small portion of the COG contingent.
