Don't worry. Kat will be registering folks at the event. Looking forward to seeing you. I know there are a few others heading up early too. Carolyn is one, I believe.

Sorry about that! The site had some severe hiccups last night for about an hour - just at the very wrongest of time. If you want to PM me your info (name, email, arrival day), I can put the info in for you. Lots of folks pay when they get to the mountain so that's just fine!

Timing is everything in life. Mine wasn't so great yesterday.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

Talk at work of Cancelling vacations to make up for the time missed due to Harvey had me worried. I believe that has been resolved. I registered for Snoopster and Myself. We will be heading up Thursday and have reserved a spot at the lodge.

Slapping a new tire and new battery on the bike this weekend and will be good to go. Looking forward to some time away with friends.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

See y'all in a few days. 2-wheeler and camping.

Dutchman - heading up that way from near Galveston area, I-45 and then up 59 most of the way to AR (boring, I know). Leaving Thurs. AM at dark thirty (beat Houston rush hour traffic), planning to be there by early afternoon. PM me if you want to meet somewhere north/east of the Conroe area on 59 (probably around daybreak, probably as an early gas stop). Probably one more gas stop in between, and lunch/gas in Mena before heading up the mountain to QW.

It is never too late! Get there when you can. We'll leave the light on for you!

If you want to PM me your info (name and email will do), I can add you to our list of rendezvous revelers.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

I need to get focused and start packing. Raised top and plugged in truck camper and started refrigerator. Had to go through tiddler bike carbs and think they're ok now. Washed bedding and cleaned stuff from last trip. I'm always behind when it comes to camping and riding

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

Trying to get there, but usps is not cooperating.

I needed a new starter for my rig, so I paid extra for guaranteed delivery on Monday. But now it seems the USPS has lost the package. Grrr

Trying to decide if I come without my ride or continue to wait for an inept government agency to do their job. Grrrr

I wish I had insisted on UPS or FedEx.

Come anyway. There is stuff beside riding to do.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

I plan to ride up tomorrow. 6 days of jury duty, meetings with property tax personnel, etc have come to pass, changed the oil and filter on the Yamaha and ordered front tire that will not be installed today so maybe the 650 with a front tire that has 12500 miles and motor oil with 3300 miles. Like it matters.

Re: Rendezvous Time!!! Rich Mountain Rendezvous - Sept. 14-17, 2017

After battling the post office, my starter was located. I installed it and it worked!! The Goose rides again.

I'm on my way. Maybe by tonight, but for sure by tomorrow

Mental preparations are nearing completion.

I also got a nap in today, so I'll have a little more energy for the weekend!

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
