 Great to hear Rod , it has been too long .

We should probably look to the Mayans for advice on how to deal with shortages of gasoline and TP . Those folks had chronic shortages of both.

It's coming down like crazy down in southeast Kansas. Luckily, the ground is warm enough that none of it is accumulating.

 Yeah , and it will be in the 70's again by Saturday . In 2019 we had 90 degrees in February , 50 degrees in April  :laugh:

Is anybody from the Tennessee general area riding out to Cedar Vale Kansas for this?  I would have to re-schedule my second covid shot for a few days later, but I might be able to ride out for it.  Schedule still pending but I should know by tomorrow (21 Apr).  Is it too late to get added to the list if I can go??

 Not sure if anyone else is coming from Tennessee , so far no one from there has spoken up . NCdan is attempting to make the trip , but will be driving.

 If you decide to come Bob we will certainly welcome you .

 Have updated the first post .

 The C store is temporarily closed , no idea if it will be open when we arrive . The gas pumps are working so if we need gasoline it is available . No idea if Shawne is answering the phone for lodging as she is out of town apparently .

 Dave at the Lodge will have at least one room ready in a house he is setting up , the bathroom is functioning . I listed his cell number , if he doesn't answer leave a message , tell him you are with me . The small lodge is already full up .

 Remember , this is Cedar Vale , doing business there is different than in a regular town , they will make room for us as it were .

I will be going.  I put my check in the mail for one person, camping, and an Xtra large sized tshirt if they are still available.  I am looking forward to the trip and the rally.  Hoping to arrive Wednesday, around 6:00pm or so.  Thats if everything goes smoothly!   Bob

 We probably need to have some emergency contact info available . My phone doesn't work in Cedar Vale , but someone will have internet , if you have a problem while traveling and we can help , post it in the thread with a contact number . I normally ask someone to check the thread every 30 minutes or so until everyone is accounted for . The number for city hall is 620 758 2244 , the grocery store number is 620 758 5090 . Don't be afraid to call either number , just tell them who you are with , everyone at both numbers knows me and will send someone to the park .

I get great signal down there, and since I'll be at the park 90% of the time I'm there, I'd be happy to let my number be used for emergency contact. If you feel like that would be helpful, go ahead and add it to the post.

For this purpose and on this forum, absolutely. On any other forum, I would be far more hesitant, but I don't anticipate any problems from this. Gonna be that way one day, anyways.

So, if I may ask, is all lodging, rooms etc booked up?  I was planning on tenting it at the park but thought i would ask if any rooms/lodges, whatever are still available or should i just call the lodges/locations and ask>  Thought you might know....  Thank You.  Bob

 Bob , the lodge owner did say he might have a place ready , although I wouldn't count on it . Hewins Park is great for camping , the ground is level and there are no rocks at the surface .

Dusty—what’s the record for attendance at Cëdir Veil?   Looks like we may break a record. 

I have two newbie Guzzi folks who may join us. 
Accentuate the positive;
Eliminate the negative;
Latch on to the affirmative;
Don't mess with Mister In-Between.

 We had about 70 in 2017 , but yes this year is a pleasant surprise . We might have over 60 , considering this event is literally in the middle of nowhere... One of the local guys that is a friend just shakes his head at the idea that we can get riders from all over to show up in his little town .

Dusty, just so you know, Phil Schreck and I have invited Jack Robinson, the guy who founded and runs the Four-Stroke Single Nat'l Owners Club out of Hutchinson, KS, to come visit us at the rally. We told him that if he wants to spend a night to bring a bag and sleep on our floor at the Lodge. He's a super guy and a past Guzzi owner. He'll fit right in...

 I've met Jack , in fact we had lunch together in the Pizza Hut in Sedan KS after the first small rally in Cedar Vale .

 He was also at the Guzzi rally that a now gone guy put on in Eufala OK in about 1998 .

 13 days now .

 If you are late to the party and just now thinking this looks like fun , please speak up . Placing the food order soon , we need to know if you are coming.

 We are justifiably proud of what we do in Cedar Vale , we have a lot of fun , do some good , make new friends , catch up with old ones . This is like family reunion , except unlike one of those , we all like each other  :laugh:

 Don't forget to bring that "thing" hiding in your closet for the auction , we promise to send you home with a replacement to fill the empty space .

 Let's rally  :thumb:
