Post by: oldbike54 on February 17, 2013, 09:12:33 PM
 Cedar Vale has a nice park, free camping , minimal facilities, and a really large pavilion . Guard cat can be easily bribed with food . Lots of interesting. albeit simple things to do . Low hills and green trees . Sedan and Ark City are close . I ride to CV about once a year and camp . anyone interested in meeting in CV for a day of mayhem and lies ?                 Dusty

 Cowboy style? For me that used to mean roll up the jacket for a pillow, wrap in a blanket or bag, and drink enough liquor to ignore mosquitos until morning.
  I don't do that anymore.  I have been spoiled by my tent and cooking stuff.

I'd love to if I were a bit closer. Most of my moms family is from either Ark city or Winfield.

Fell in love with trains playing on the locomotive in the park in Ark City as a kid in the 60's. 

Been a few years since I went thru there.

not to spoil a party but according to the Cedar Vale  website   cedarvalekansas.com last years annual spring fling fell on that weekend might be wise to make a phone call to check campsite availability. Sure would hate too show up and find no room at the inn

I'll be there with coffee pot and cook gear barring any change in plans. Usually it's easier to get groceries locally after a headcount. Dusty, the website indicates a new restaurant opened the first of the year, what do you know about that?

Time to wake this one up. It was a nice day in SE ks today so I took a little ride and ended up in Cedar Vale the park looks like a good place for a couple of evenings. Talked to a local who said he thought he could hook us up with firewood. Grocery store is open til 5 or 6pm, gas at the convenience store and a bar downtown. The restaurant looked to be doing a good business. I will call city hall to see what it takes to get the electric unlocked. Who's in?

I have in the past labeled, captioned and given links for pictures over the years only to notice that many times, the audience was limited, non existent or non appreciative.  Its a great deal of time and work in editing, uploading, sorting, posting and then giving captions.  I choose not to give the time and effort any longer for those reasons, however this is an open forum and anyone may comment on the pictures of their choosing.

We definitely need more bikes next year, even if you just ride in for the day. Freezing rain and drizzle today, back in the 70"s later in the week.  ???

Hello to all.
It was a windy trip across Northern NM and the AZ reservations. I had a "close encounter of the tumbleweed kind" in AZ. about a 20 pounder i figure. It hit the bike not me! Front end. Got a turn signal,  field repaired with a ball point pen and duct tape(don't leave home without it.) and a few new scratches.
Ah the wild country. When I crossed the river into CA there were white caps!

Thanks to Doug for the food,Tom for the home brew and tractoring the picnic table with his machine to a convenient spot near the fire and tending same. And to Dusty for never ending stories and philosophy (guess I got a few in too) Also Johns beautiful Le Mans. To Dave for braving the wind just for a short visit and of course to Michael D for the pic. I did wonder who that old guy standing with Dusty and Dave was 'till i figured out it was me!
 
Here is to looking forward to next years "wild bunch not a rally cookout and lie swapping meeting". Dusty picked a perfect spot

I will call in for you , tell them as an undercover operative for the MCRSA you are needed for a top secret operation in Kansas . We are only on a need to know basis , your only instructions from the director was to bring ceegars and a tent . Someone has to prevent Cedarvale from being being taken over by a disreputable and seditious group from Oklahoma .

Cedar Vale has a mountain!

Lookout Mountain
(http://www.cityofcedarvale.com/images/lom2.jpg)

Lookout Mountain is located one mile southwest of Cedar Vale on a gravel road. A private drive leads to the top (elevation 1274 feet), and a short hike affords a splendid panoramic view of Cedar Vale and miles of surrounding country. Fred Montgomery gave the right-of-way for the road to the top of Lookout Mountain to the City of Cedar Vale. Old timers say there was once an Indian trail marker on top of Lookout Mountain that told of Osage Indians traveling the Black Dog Trail to their hunting grounds.

It's all a lot like the talent show scene in "Revenge of the Nerds," so definitely bring your keyboard. Last year, Dusty stole the show with an interpretive dance exploring the age-old question of whether Catsup is an acceptable catfish topping.
For the adventure minded, there's talk of hiring a local Sherpa for a trek to the misty summit of Lookout mountain.

Actually , she is tougher and more ready to rough it than her man . He keeps asking about hot showers and a bed .

So, Doug and I talked about our little soirée last night . The only shortcoming in the camp ground is a lack of hot water. Doug (Delrod) is a GENIUS , he suggested several different ways to engineer a warm shower . Ideas are welcome .
 Looks like maybe 20 attendees , Unkept , you could keep Kcker and Truck company , bring the wife , surely 4 girls can keep us in line . Hah !

 OK , here is the Saturday dinner menu .
Fried catfish fillets , baked catfish fillets with cream cheese and lemon juice rolled in , fried and baked potatoes , pickled green tomatoes , and last but not least , home made buttermilk hush puppies . We need some salsa and chips for later , to go with a beer or two . We will use the left over baked taters for some buttermilk and bacon tater patties for Sunday morning breakfast . Maybe just do some dogs for Friday evening meal . It is my B day party after all , don't wanna spend all weekend cooking  :D Fees will amount to , oh , 50 bucks a head or so  ;D No , seriously , I think last year they charged us 15 bucks a night for electricity , firewood was free , as was police protection  ;) :D. Matt is providing security this year , so we can all feel pretty safe from the local marauding hordes  :BEER: He is also heading up the complaint dept , well actually Lorraine is , but he will be assisting her  :D Hmm , let me rethink that fee structure , I do need a new pair of shoes  ;) Doug and John S will handle that part  :D Tom will be the official keeper of the fire and provide humorous comments , just don't ask him to help with your tent . ;D I promise you guys a fun gathering , interesting conversation , and Kirby 1923 and Daniel K will supply tech info that mostly will go right over my head . I will nod and smile and wonder how anyone can be so smart . Doug usually has to translate for me .

I once saw Stanley Clark open for the Dixie Dregs.  I had a few of his albums, one had Jeff Beck on gee-tar IIRC.  The Low Ryder appreciates that.

Don't forget the Little Feat.  And Jeff Beck for that matter.

8517 songs , lets see , average of what 1/2 lb per LP , if some are the old thicker vinyl , average of 10 songs per album = 852 albums , divide by 2 = 426 lbs . Thinking that might cause you to exceed the GVWR of the Lemansaha by just a bit . Laughing here .

OK folks , I am predicting temps in the mid to high 70s , maybe a Spring shower or two just to settle the pollen , light winds , and a high probability of severe hilarity . There is a front moving down from Nebraska and Iowa containing lightening bolts of wit and silliness along with a wave from the "jet" stream carrying vast amounts of intelligence and hilarious tales arriving from the West coast . A minor disturbance containing extreme levels of mechanical and practical knowledge will arrive from Kansas accompanied by a vortex containing warm humor and varying amounts of silliness and wisdom from Missouri . Kind of hard to predict how the whirlwinds from Oklahoma and Arkansas will affect the proceedings , certainly they will be "legal" and not "Rock(er)" the boat or create conditions unfavorable for" Lowryting"or "Sailing". High probability of a low altitude "Glider" sighting and the highly elusive , though often cited
"Picture Perfect" day coming down from Wichita . Hopefully the conditions will allow for a "Bullit" like trip from Cherryvale
bearing , in relative terms , two V formations of Geese .

Dusty, take one of the expected tally.  My son can't make the ride.  His mother, (my ex, thankfully) is coming out for Easter. So he feels an obligation to stay here and see her at his brothers house over Easter.  I could say something about my ex and Easter but since the boys read this forum and it is their mother I shall, shall we say, refrain from further remarks.  ::)  Looks like just me and Miss Sweet Lorraine will show up in 14 days today, and counting.  We got a room in Garner KS for Thursday night so we can have a shower Friday morning since the hygeine accoutrements may be on the rather primative side the rest of the week.  ;) :D  See ya all then!!! :bike :+=copcar

Doug has done his usual brilliant work behind the scenes and arranged for a load of firewood to be delivered and is bringing a high zoot camp shower . Not fancy perhaps , but a hot shower is always welcome at camp outs , especially by one's camp neighbor  ;D As stated earlier , at least 2 of us will be there on Thursday if any one just needs to get out of the house .

If you want to take a cage Chet its really ok.Rocker went to Lo uisiana last week,Iknow personally what their rallys are like,more than likely he ate enough fish to last a long long time.So he will be takin nothing---- probably a no show,worked for GEORGE JONES!! Now theres Delrod what can you say about him?Iheard he was hitch hiking to Cedar Vail cause he had to carry so damn many FISH or sumpin! Its crazy man every buddy does his own thing,that OLD HIPPY he is staying home to care for some CATS what the hell has he got MOUNTAIN lions!! Chet if you come with a cage then perhaps OLD HIPPY would come cats an all! Anyway just my too cents worth,ya~all come now ya hear!!!

Hope to make it over Sat.
Would enjoy coming Thursday and staying till Sunday but just can't  :'(
May have to come in cage also. Not very far for me just have to get home quick if something happens back home.
Give me a bad  time about being in a cage and I will have   swalker and rudy take your ass out!!  ;D ;D

I will explain when I get there.

Chet



Chet, doesn't look like you'll be the only one in a cage.  Looks like due to supplier difficulties, and a bi-polar mother nature, Fresh Candy and I will be caging it down to CV.  So if they give us any manure about caging it to the rally, we can just sit and drink our good liquor and smoke our great cigars ourselves and not share the bounty.  ;) :D


To all, hope everyone is bringing a bottle of their favorite spirits and cigars to enjoy.  Fresh Candy (Lorraine) is already planning the after dinner soiree around the campfire.  After we help Dusty and Doug clean up after dinner, the Guzzi campfire and bar will open.  Anyone that has to been a rally with Lorraine and I knows what I am talking about. If you haven't, well, hope you enjoy it.  It will be time for Dusty and Doug to kick back and take a load off after all the KP duty they pulled.  ;-T :BEER:

See you there FRIDAY!!!!!!!

Had to fight down the urge to head out for CV today  :D Still need to mow the yard , a 15 minute chore now that my mower is not almost as old as me  ;D Looking forward with great anticipation folks , hope everyone has a safe and fun journey arriving and departing . Some of you are coming from a fair distance , slightly envious of the road trip  :)
Of course we are going to have the best gathering of the year , so far anyway . Matt is in charge of the complaint dept ...so whine at your own peril  :D

The weather forecast is, in a word ...FABULOUS , MOST PLEASING , BEAUTIFUL , VERY PLEASANT ! Take your pick . 
Slight chance of rain , mid 70s , light winds , told everyone we would have good weather  :D
I would like to make an observation re rallies/camp outs . My two local buddies both have the time and money to attend , and claim they would like to come . However , both of them have come up with several excuses as to why they can't . I have decided the truth is that neither one really "WANTS" to come , simply afraid to leave  the comforts of home . Sad really , both are much younger than me , and act like two old men . Oh well , won't ask them anymore if they want to have fun , guess the television provides better entertainment than riding MCs and hanging out with good folks . Sorry for the rambling , but there is a point . I am very grateful to have found a group of people who refuse to get old , preferring to get out and experience some life  :bow Thanks folks , see you all tomorrow .

Big John,
   I looked around the map there... I don't see any place to get Miller Lite...LOL...

Rudy called and is not going to be able to make it. His excuse for backing out is legitimate...We will ride together again... So if I make it, I will be solo...

Well , sorry the hush puppies didn't turn out quite as intended , still refining the outdoor technique . Hope everyone had fun , I certainly did  :) Slightly disappointed that no spanking occurred , well , to be correct , Stormtruck offered , but he ain't nearly as cute as Marcia  ;D Thanks to all for attending , some of the locals came to to the park as I was packing to leave , stated that we were a very pleasant group , and to come back , of course they weren't around at night  ;D

I got home at 1100.  Then got repacked to go my mom's for Easter and family Birthdays.  Lots of travel.

Dusty the food was great.  I had two of those monster hushpuppies. 

When I shook Stormtruck's hand, lightning flashed across the sky; I think the space-time continuum farted- at least that's how scientists describe it.  Fubar's description of the IRS was an eye opener.   Great to see Steve's new 1400.  Doug carried on with KP.  I mooched some great scotch & cigar from ST. 

Marcia, special thanks for the cake.  What a surprise and great artwork.

A great time was had by all.

Many,many thanks to Doug (master of planning and organizing) and Dusty for the food, firewood and legwork to make this possible. It was nice to meet folks I hadn't yet had the opportunity to, and even better to find out they're all nuts! Very honorable mention goes out to Guzzistajohn for the fine music he provided via whatever that newfangled gadget was, and to FUBARGUZZI for a very entertaining story at the campfire. And Mike (kirby1923) is an Ironman. Well done,sir!

We landed home about 2300 tonight.  Made decent time, had an escorted 80 mph leg for most of Missouri. ( I think the guy in front of us had an Escort radar detector) :+=copcar ;).  Thank you to Dusty and Doug  for the fine vittles.  Loved the fish and hush puppies! ;-T :drool :food  It was GREAT to meet everyone, ever our loyal opposition (LIBERALS!) ;) :D LowRyder.  He is nothing like you described him Dusty.  He does walk upright and speak in full well structured sentences!!  ;) :D ;D ( Actually John, Dusty has always spoken highly of you).  I really enjoyed meeting everyone. Lorraine even had a good time. We are glad everyone seemed to enjoy Lorraine's little horsed overs and and our small contribution to the spirits of the party. :BEER:  Special thanks to Guzzisti John for the trust and honor of the use of his Tiger.  Even though it turned on me as we we leaving the rally.  No lasting injuries to me, but alas I did put a pretty good hurtin on the Tiger.  Tim, I hope you are feeling better and hopefully you can make the Nationals and stay the whole rally. I can say without reservation, that this was the most enjoyable rally we have ever attended.  Bravo Zulu to you Dusty, Doug, and all that helped make it such a great event. We already have April next year blocked out for whenever the 3rd Annual Cedar Vale Guzzi, Falcon(e) rally and soiree is.  Looking forward to it. Pictures to follow TBD.




HAPPY BIRTHDAY DUSTY

I arrived in beautiful downtown Chester about six just ahead of rain all the way.Twenty five mpg to and thirty three back from Cedar Vail tail winds are great! Its Monday I am still hung over what do they put in beer these days?I would have stayed another couple days however I was running really LOW on  propane for the furnace.I will suggest next year we should have some sort of prepay to help cover expenses for our hosts its getting to be a lot of out of pocket expense at one time,just sayin.

The way that Easter Sunday is chosen will take care of that , next year it on the 5th of April . Sorry , but if we move the dates it conflicts with Luap's deal , or someones Bar Mitzvah , or a solar eclipse , or ,... well something  :D

True some could not attend because of Easter . However , the following weekend Hewins Park is reserved for their Spring Fling , several hundred  folks attend that event so we are competing for space , the previous weekend it rained everyday , and two weeks later is Luap's deal ...so I stand by the dates . The only practical time is that weekend , and since we took a vote last year , well , there you have it .

Thanks to all for a great weekend getaway. Wasn't set right away on making it, but glad I did.

Yep, good listener , probably 'cause I had to work fri night, got back to wichita around 4am sat, hung around wichita a while then headed to CV. By the time I turned in for the night on sat/sun, I was over 24 hours with just a short nap.

Did have fun pedaling around the area.

Thanks to Dusty and Doug for the cooking, thanks to John for the tunes, that little speaker sounded great in the shelter.

Was nice to put faces with forum handles. Weather held out nicely. Not too hot or cold. Didn't get wet until almost home.

I think I can be talked into making it again next year.

See ya,
Rod

It was sure a fun time, Saturday's campfire was perfect, It's really cool to have riding buddies spread out over the country like this!   THANKS LUAP, ROCKER & WILDGUZZI!!

 Rocker made me promise to not bring this up until after the first of the year  ;D It is 24 F here with a WCF of 13 F and temp is going the wrong direction , seemed as good a time as any to talk about our little NAR in the wilds of S.E.Kansas . plus I've had a few inquiries , so ... (Rocker , edit this as necessary , thanks )
 The dates this year will be  17-19 April , and of course Doug , Fubes , and I will be there Thurs the 16th so come on if cabin fever is a problem . Still refining the catfish and hushpuppie technique for outdoors , this year will be better than last  ;D
 The pics here tell it all , and Guzzistajohn will repost some of his . No fee , but donations are always welcome to help Doug and myself defray the expenses . Electricity available , and we have a crude shower , but it works thanks to Doug . Plenty of firewood , and the pavillion will hold a hundred folks in case of rain . Cedar Vale is walking distance from the park , good cafe , grocery store , not much else , but the locals are friendly and seem to appreciate our presence , the young folks even open doors and call us sir and mam  :o :D Danged refreshing .
 We promise a good time , and Stormtruck is our complaint dept , so if there is a problem ... ;D
 Oh , and the scenery will pleasantly surprise you .

This get-together is on my radar (very weather dependent), and I'm looking forward to it.  Cedar Vale is about 700 miles for me, so it's probably a two-day jaunt in each direction.

Ride safe.

I did a sales call at the Bob Dole VA Med Ctr. I was suprised a ED clinic hadn't been erected in his name ???

Good news is I did get to listen to my entire Homer and Jethro music collection without interuption.

Had an old dog, he was thin as a rail.

A thousand fleas all on his tail.

When that tail of his went flop.

The fleas on the bottom all went to the top. :BEER:

Only cedars that I know are the scrubby ones that grow in the hill country West of Austin.  The cedar choppers cut them down, strip the branches, and use them as fence posts.  Not big enough  to hang a hammock containing a person of my manly proportions.

640 miles (10hrs) for me, looks pretty boring,  I-35.. If I get the timing belt done by then maybe I'll come in a car? are dogs allowed to run free in that park?

Hi guys,

Would there be a spot left for a Riding Dutchman? I am finally getting back on the US roads after 3 years. Just a short trip this time: picking up my big blue EV in Los Angeles for a trip to a conference in Chicago. I was planning to go and visit StormTruck2 - as he formally owns my bike (long story) and is living close enough to Chicago - but he told me he was planning to come to the Cedar Vale NAR. So I am planning on meeting him - and the rest of you guys - there and leaving him the bike to take home with him. I will probably be flying out of Wichita on Sunday.

Looking forward to visiting not a rally in Kansas

Mike,
Without adding many more miles, you could (assume you're riding the loop counter-clockwise)

- west of Cambridge, follow the Grouse Creek road south to Dexter
- See the original "Oh Henry's" candy bar factory in Dexter
- Then take "14" (the Grouse Creek Road) southwest out of Dexter
- When you hit US-166 jog farther west for a couple of miles
- Take "1" south to Silverdale
- Follow that same road east to Maple City
- Jog north from Maples City (the same road) back to US-166
- carry on as already planned.

Is this the candy factory in Dexter still going? I think they made the old fashioned hard christmas candy. Might be the same place Daniel Kalal was talking about. Used to deliver sack feed and minerals in the area, Moline and Sedan were a couple stops on the route. Always went through Dexter and saw the candy factory next to the road but never got to stop.

I believe it's still a going concern.  I took these shots in 2007, but there's still a web page out there.

Actually, I am surprised I survived those days delivering that feed. Can't remember which place had it, but the ramp between the trailer and the storage room was literally like this \. And with a stack of oh ten or twelve bags, 50lbs each, you learned real quick how not to go down that ramp. Don't miss that for anything.

Not sure I will make it. For sure not on a bike. Went to my Neurologist yesterday. I guess according to Arkansas law, if you have had a seizure you are not allowed to drive for one year. So I am not able to drive or ride till next December. My Neurologist in Fayetteville told me a couple of months. But my new one told me about the Arkansas law. I googled it and he is right.  It's all good I guess. I may have to get my wife to drive me to one or two this year.

Getting closer by the day. Talked to the firewood guy today and that is all setup should have enough for a weekend of campfire. Anyone who is not sure about camping needs to remember there are some rooms available in Cedar Vale. They are hunting lodge type look to be pretty nice from pics and are affordable. Working on getting some T-shirts made up to help pay the catfish bill I hope to post details about that this week and maybe get some folks committed to determine sizes and qty. Need to get some headcounts so Dusty and I can get the grocery list firmed up looking forward to it Doug

Maybe this was asked and answered before, but I really do not have the time to browse those 14 pages of messages right now. I am preparing my ride from Los Angeles to Cedar Vale and I need to know whether I need to bring a tent from Netherlands.

I was planning on staying in motels or in friends' houses. But if I do need a tent at the NAR I could also use it along the route and keep the lodging cost down. On the other hand, fitting a tent in my duffle bag is not exactly easy. It worked on my first trip and then I ended up not using the tent at all.

If there are cabins (but I guess from the first post about minimal facilities that there are none) or a motel close by that would be an option. I do not drink so I can still ride after hanging out with a bunch of Guzzisti late into the night.

Also, if there are visitors to Cedar Vale that arrive from the direction of Albuquerque - it might be nice to share the last part of my route with you, so get in touch and we can see if it works out. I think the weather conditions might not be good enough to take a Northern route via Denver, so it will likely be an Eastern route via Oklahoma. I can stay with a friend in Albuquerque as long as I want, so I can time the remainder of my ride to team up with some of you guys for the last stretch. Might be more fun than riding all those miles by myself.

Looking forward to meeting the lot of you at Cedar Vale.

There is some lodging available in Cedar Vale . I will work on getting you some telephone numbers today. I can also bring a spare tent if that works better for you. I believe there is going to be at least one RV at the site perhaps he would have a spare bed? If you speak up soon (like today) I could still get a t-shirt ordered for you

Stormtruck,

You keep amazing me. One day you will have to come to Amsterdam so I can repay all that generosity.   ;-T

Only 14 days before I get back in the EV saddle and another 11 before we finally get to meet IRL. Looking forward to it. I will make sure to pack a bag of smiles, and there are always some good travel stories to be told.

Ciao

Jang

We would love to make Amsterdam on vacation some day.  We have a good friend in Germany, and of course I want to take Lorraine to Italy, Amsterdam is defiantly possible.  We would love to spend a few days there.  ;-T

Well, if you do plan a trip to Amsterdam and Italy and you are a true Guzzisti, you will have to land early September, get your hands on a local Guzzi and ride across the Alps to the annual meeting in Mandello del Lario, of course.

And on the way there, you can sing this to Neil Young's "Helpless", after replacing some words:

There is a lake in Northern Italy
with dream comfort rides to spare
Every year I feel the urge to go
all those Guzzistis are there

Riding, riding Moto Guzzi
(etc. - I will finish these lyrics later)

Hey guys, if someone has an acoustic guitar that they can bring to the NAR, I will bring my slightly deranged lyrics and sing a couple of songs around the campfire. If I were riding my Nuovo Falcone across the US, I could have brought my own guitar (it is the only motorbike I know that fits a guitar without breaking its neck), but there is no space on the EV to pack it safely. Too many cylinders, I guess  ;D

Ciao

Spoke with the lovely miss Emily yesterday aka Cedar Vale city clerk yesterday and she is warning preparing the locals for our arrival. I was also referred to the following.  "New this year to the Cedar Vale parks schedule we are pleased to announce Fri and Sat evening dinner cruises will be provided free of charge on a weekly basis. These cruises fill up quickly and are offered based on space availability". I was not able to get contact info about this but was assured that the folks who administer the MGNA roadside assistance program would make arrangements for us. See you all there. :bike :bike :bike

I went through about two or three boxes of old shot gun shells that had been stored in not ideal conditions and I reclaimed the lead shot for my rocketry projects and kept the powder for fire starter material. Maybe a third of a zip lock sandwich size bag. So if we get ma nature to quit crying the blues, we can get a fire started.

Got Jackal ready, got the Kamp ready and loaded, just have to pack clothing. And will be heading out sometime thursday. Gotta work wed night but should get back early enough to grab a nap and hit the road. Just depends on what ma nature feels like thursday as to how soon I take off.

See you there!

Here is an update from the Riding Dutchman.

After landing at LAX, where I was greeted by jdgretz and taken to his home to meet the family and then out for an Italian dinner, I got to the AirBnB I found nearby and slept like a baby until the next morning around 8. JD picked me up and I got the bags strapped on the bike. We rode a mountain road to Palmdale together, had lunch and then said goodbye, as he was turning around to get back home and I continued to Joshua Tree Village, where I stayed in a nice little motel. The next day I toured around Joshua Tree park and spent the rest of the day checking out this small village and doing much of nothing.

After 2 nights in the motel I took to the road again for a long stage that took me through a tiny place called Paradise, then I went beyond Hope and took my Guzzi straight through Congress on my way to Jerome, a lovely artist's village in the mountains high above Sedona. I passed around Sedona as it was already getting late and I have been in that tourist town before. I was greeted with my host for the next two nights in Southern Flagstaff. The next day was spent without any riding at all, but with a lot of nice talks and playing guitar together with my host.

Then it was time to move on and I rode another long stretch to Silver City. The ride there was beautiful, with long sweepers through gorgeous scenery. In Silver City I has another AirBnB booked and this turned out to be a lovely place to spend two nights. My hostess even took me to a hot spring in the mountains and we spent a lot of time taling about Life, the Universe and Everything. Again, there was a guitar on the premises, so I could practice a little more. And yesterday I arrived here in Albuquerque, where I am staying in a friend's house. The ride from Silver City was not as pleasant as the stages before, because of the strong head winds, which made the riding harder and the noise of the wind deafening.

Today was another day of resting and doing some work on the computer, just like tomorrow.  I am planning to leave for Clayton, New Mexico on Thursday and then ride the last section to Cedar Vale on Friday. The weather forecast is not particularly good, so I am keeping an eye on it and might decide to postpone my arrival in Cedar Vale by a day if conditions are really going to suck. The road is going to be mostly straight and boring and I do not want to make the experience worse than it needs to be. But I will be getting to Cedar Vale in any case, as I need to hand my bike over to StormTruck before he drops me at Wichita airport on Sunday.

So far this has been a nice trip and I am looking forward to meeting a bunch of Guzzi riders at Cedar Vale. See you at the end of the week.

Not that Cedar Vale is that big a town, but as I am a first-timer, can anyone tell me where exactly I am going to find you guys ? I could go for the noise of a bunch of Guzzi guys having beers and fun, but my EV makes a noise, too...  :bike

Hewins Park. Lower right corner of the map.


Thanks CJ, that confirms my guess when zooming in on Google Maps satellite view - looking for a large roof (after seeing the photos from last year) in an area that allows camping. Not too difficult in a small town like CV. I checked the weather forecast for Thu/Fri along the route and it seems that Cedar Vale is the worst spot to be this week. But the weather forecast does not know that a bunch of Guzzisti are going to be there.  ;D

You guys will hear me coming by the end of the afternoon or early evening. Possibly a bit wet from the Friday ride but who knows - I might be able to dodge the drops...

CU in a couple of days

 Yeah , thanks Jay . The hardest part of finding the park is not missing those little Cedar Vale signs on the highway at 70 MPH in the dark . Been going there for over 40 years , still miss the signs , of course back in the day the highway went through town , made it easier to find  ;D

Rode there in the rain all the way Sat morning.  Sun came out Sat afternoon and had a good ride through the Kansas hill country to dry out the gear. Saturday night storms came back, tent leaked, gear got soaked from the inside out.  Rain clouds chased me all the way home.  Learned I can go at least 25 miles on low fuel light and the bike started shifting badly on the way home but that'll be for a different thread.  Had a good time despite the weather and the hush puppies were worth the effort, and I got a t-shirt.

Around 11pm a thunderstorm blew through, sending us all to our racks.  Then, a light rain most of the night.

Sunday dawned beautiful, but a bit foggy.  Perfect opportunity to snap a few pix around town, so I hopped in the Suburban and headed out for an hour, or so.

This is the bridge that the concrete rainbow arch bridge replaced.  Before this bridge was a ford near where I'm shooting the photos.

Back in the days when cattle were transported by rail, cattle rancher, Mr. Hewins, was influential enough to get a rail spur run through the area.  The stockyards were at his ranch a few miles away, but there was service through Cedar Vale, the rails just kissing the southwest side of town.  Today there is a pretty big feed mill there, but some of the vintage buildings still exist alongside the more modern structures.  The rails were pulled up decades ago.

The tracks ran right in front of this old warehouse.

A friend was there to greet me.

After this excursion, I went back to the campground and visited with the folks that were still there, packing up.  It was beginning to rain.  Again.  So I headed out, but before I turned back Eastward, I had one more bridge to score.  This bridge is on the Cedar Vale - Grenola road, a few miles North of Cedar Vale.

Then eastward toward home.  One more planned stop was just east of Peru at the Midland Brick Factory ruins to pick up a souvenir for Red, who couldn't make it to the NAR this year.

Despite the rain, the NAR was a success.  Good location, good food, good friends.  Thanks to contributions, 50/50 drawing, and t-shirt sales, the Cedar Vale NAR was able to donate some money to the city to help with maintaining the park, and make a contribution to WildGuzzi.  And for those things, I would like to thank Dusty (oldbike54) and Doug (delrod).  It's events like this that really make the Guzzi community.

It was great meeting you Jang. Feel free to PM me anytime and we can swap music interests. What you herd on my ipod was a small sample of my music likes. Hope to see you again at a future Guzzi event. Safe travels

Rod


Here is an update from the Riding Dutchman.

After landing at LAX, where I was greeted by jdgretz and taken to his home to meet the family and then out for an Italian dinner, I got to the AirBnB I found nearby and slept like a baby until the next morning around 8. JD picked me up and I got the bags strapped on the bike. We rode a mountain road to Palmdale together, had lunch and then said goodbye, as he was turning around to get back home and I continued to Joshua Tree Village, where I stayed in a nice little motel. The next day I toured around Joshua Tree park and spent the rest of the day checking out this small village and doing much of nothing.

After 2 nights in the motel I took to the road again for a long stage that took me through a tiny place called Paradise, then I went beyond Hope and took my Guzzi straight through Congress on my way to Jerome, a lovely artist's village in the mountains high above Sedona. I passed around Sedona as it was already getting late and I have been in that tourist town before. I was greeted with my host for the next two nights in Southern Flagstaff. The next day was spent without any riding at all, but with a lot of nice talks and playing guitar together with my host.

Then it was time to move on and I rode another long stretch to Silver City. The ride there was beautiful, with long sweepers through gorgeous scenery. In Silver City I has another AirBnB booked and this turned out to be a lovely place to spend two nights. My hostess even took me to a hot spring in the mountains and we spent a lot of time taling about Life, the Universe and Everything. Again, there was a guitar on the premises, so I could practice a little more. And yesterday I arrived here in Albuquerque, where I am staying in a friend's house. The ride from Silver City was not as pleasant as the stages before, because of the strong head winds, which made the riding harder and the noise of the wind deafening.

Today was another day of resting and doing some work on the computer, just like tomorrow.  I am planning to leave for Clayton, New Mexico on Thursday and then ride the last section to Cedar Vale on Friday. The weather forecast is not particularly good, so I am keeping an eye on it and might decide to postpone my arrival in Cedar Vale by a day if conditions are really going to suck. The road is going to be mostly straight and boring and I do not want to make the experience worse than it needs to be. But I will be getting to Cedar Vale in any case, as I need to hand my bike over to StormTruck before he drops me at Wichita airport on Sunday.

So far this has been a nice trip and I am looking forward to meeting a bunch of Guzzi riders at Cedar Vale. See you at the end of the week.

Hi there fellow Guzzisti,

It was fun to be at such a nice informal Guzzi meeting. Of course the weather could have been better, but the company was great. Interesting to see how all differences in political or other views on life are easily overcome by the common craziness of wanting to ride one particular brand of motorbike. We do share some strange kind of craziness, I guess.

My EV has now safely arrived in Iowa (at least, I hope so), so that the license plates finally make sense.

Am I going to be back at a future Cedar Vale NAR ? I really don't know. Not if it is the only reason to travel to the US (unless I strike gold in my back yard and never have to worry about any amount of money anymore, but that chance is close to zero, given the swamp history of Amsterdam). If I do my best I might find an excuse to travel to Kansas next year but don't place your bets on it.

Thanks for all the nice talks, the food, the drinks and the company. I will wear the Cedar Vale NAR T-shirt to Dutch Guzzi events with pride.

Ciao

We are safely back to Iowa, the plates are in their home state for the first time since issuance, and we had a great time in CV. Well maybe not so much the overnight weather, but even that failed to dampen the good times. It was great to finely met you Jang, and all the people I had never met before.  We WILL be back for the 4th Annual CV NAR and eating symposium.  :drool :BEER:

 Just a few observations and thoughts regarding the CV NAR .

1 We are a hardy lot , not mean or aggressive , but tough and self reliant .
2 The folks of Cedar Vale are truly welcoming and friendly .
3 The nice Australian lady running the restaurant is funny and smart , Aussies are everywhere  :D
4 'Truck's Centauro is obviously a Chuck in Indiana tuned model , WOW !
5 The Eskimo Spy and his lovely wife Gail are pretty cool  ;-T
6 Jang represents his native Netherlands well . Do you know why the Dutch are all tall ? Because all the short ones drowned  :D
7 Chet is a great conversationalist , way too smart for me to keep up with .
8 Ditto for my partner in crime Delrod .
9 CJ 750 always has a surprise .

 More later . If you have any observations re the NAR , please share , was pretty busy cooking and missed out on a few things .

LowRyter, I hope you were able to resolve your fifth wheel problem quickly and inexpensively. I owe you a box of your choice of cigars.  After two nights in the tent during thunderstorms, putting them up and taking them down,  loading two bikes, and loading the truck, Lorraine was eyeing your Toy Hauler. On the ride back she said that maybe we need to get one.   We found an 03 26 footer with a slide out  for $6500.  Haven't seen it, and will believe it when we bring it home, but you and your bride sparked "Lorraine's" idea to get a toy hauler.  :bow :D

Dusty, Delrod, great food, and a great time had by Lorraine and I.   Please confirm our reservations for next years CVNAR. :bike ;-T

Jang we really enjoyed meeting you, and hope to meet you again.  We certainly have plans on getting to your fair home country and partaking of you and your brides hospitality.

Chet, thanks for taking the Cali for that diagnostic spin.  I'll be doing a TB balance, pet cock mod, and loctite the rotor bolts.  You said to use red loctite right??? ;) ::)

Rocker, great to get to chat with you, and outstanding work on the photos.  Nice barn owl photo.  Any owl in a barn is a barn owl to me.  :D

Fubar, hope the vert got you back to the big city in Nebraska.

Gary, Loretta, it was great having breakfast with you.  Enjoy them oysters Loretta!! :food  I damn sure did!!

Bill, Gale, hope you had a great trip back home, wonderful meeting you.

To those that I missed naming by name, it was great to meet you, but I am horrible with names. Please take no offense at my failure to recall your name personally.

I met so many great people that I can't recall your names. 

Dusty, how many days to the CVNAR???   ;D

No worries man.  You don't owe me damn thing.  That hitch has been toast for years and I finally put it out of it's misery.  :wife:     Since I have a short bed, I picked up a used slider hitch in OKC (got it for half price of new one).  Got my trailer back home by 4 o'clock today.  I wish my trailer had slide outs when we are crammed in there.  I am happy it doesn't when I work on the dang thing- which every time I take it out.  I understand the very new ones have improved slide out systems that are less likely to give problems.

If you get a toy hauler, even a light one like mine, I would go for three quarter ton truck as a minimum.  And if you get a heavy one (12k LB+), I'd go duallie.  

Anyway, got home.  All OK.  The trailer is going in the shop to fix a plumbing leak and few other things.  This was a shake down camp out, getting it ready for the Indy 500 and perhaps the National, E NY, Grand Marais, maybe Canada.

I didn't shoot a lot of pics at CV this year, and better versions of most of the ones I did take have already been posted by others.

But I do want to add some pics of the small-block that Mike (mwrenn) rode in from Enid.

Mike is very low key about it all, but the more you study this bike, the more you are rewarded with the discovery of upgrades large and small. Everything is so well integrated and cleanly done that the extent of the modifications isn't readily apparent at first. Very impressive motorcycle, and he's not done yet.

Looks like your painter had eagle decals facing both ways, but chose to mount them facing rearward on both sides of the bike...

Look at the pics.  Eagles facing rearward on both sides in the pics of mwrenn's bike.  Mistake by the painter.

But yes, 1981-1996, all eagle decals had the eagle facing right, so decals on the left side of the bikes faced rearward:

It is not just the Eagle facing rearward the letters are also opposite. So on the left (sitting on the bike) Moto Guzzi goes from front to rear with the bird facing the same as the lettering.
The right side is the exact same decal put on in reverse. Moto Guzzi starts at the rear of the tank and faces  reads forward along the bird facing foward. Guzzi's and everybody else puts their names/decals on the same way.
All Guzzi's even those with the Eagle the lettering reversed. We read from right to left no matter which side of the bike we are looking at.

How do you mount a decal backward? It cannot be done can it. It can be painted but how do you apply a decal backwards. I thought decals only attach from one side.

2 decals, a left side and a right side. They were just switched.

As Chuck said.  There are left and right stick eagles.  On this bike they were mounted on the wrong sides, so both point rearwards...

But that does not make sense as the Eagles always face/follow the direction of the letters. There is no reason to make a right and left Eagle unless you wanted to point the Eagles in the same direction. All Eagles on all Guzzis have faced back on the left and front on the right which is following with the letters. So the painter did not do it wrong. If it was done as it always have been done then there is only one decal for the tank. They are identical. Guzzi must have changed the decals. Or someone had the decals custom made and therefore made the mistake during production.  These must not be a Guzzi decals.

Have you owned a Guzzi built between 1997 and current?  If so, then go look at the left side and note that the eagles face forward.

As seen here in this beautiful and rare green/black 1997 California 1100:

Don't worry, I'm usually arguing the point you just argued,  with people who think my 1996 Sport 1100 is a repaint, because the left tank eagle faces rearward!

So what am I seeing here. I see a left forward facing Eagle and a rear facing right side Eagle. At least that is what it looks like to me. Am I wrong.

There's a twine ball in Minnesota that is/was larger (perhaps one or the other has added a bit).  There used to be a sign on the Kansas ball that mentioned this.  I don't know; I think the idea of the Second largest ball of twine in the world sounds honorable and more fitting to the early Kansas sensibilities.  Of course, that would be true in Minnesota, as well.  You go first; no, I insist, yours is a splendid ball of twine...

I think, if the weather was in the 50F range (maybe better), and with the Corbin saddle on the Sport, maybe a day and a half ride.  Last time I rode out that way on the R100GS, made it from home to Hannibal MO during the daylight hours of day one.  Won't ride after the sun goes down.

Keep in touch with your plans Bob.  I'm in Columbus, IN and Cedar Vale is 700 miles to the west.  That means two days in both directions for me on the bike, the days still aren't very long in late April and I don't like riding in the dark either. 

I'm planning on making the get-together, Santa brought me a new tent that I want to try out and get used to using before I head west to the MGNOC National.  If the weather forecast is really bad, I'll drive the car.

I don't know anything about MoKan, but the Okie Campout is officially Saturday October 8th through Wednesday October 11th this year. I guess they're expecting more people to want to stay over than show up early. But if you arrive on the 6th or 7th, I'm sure you won't be alone.

OK Gents,
As of now I am interested and will go as far as saying that if the weather isn't too bad and something doesn't come up to stop me I may do the CV. How is that for an incredible milk toast commitment! Seriously though I would really like to do the run from Lincoln, NE. Its a "fair" ride from here but not a "far" ride. We already have our Open Garage, John Day, Iowa and Mo-Kan in the que for this year. The CV would be a great season opener for me. Of course that is if my recently rollered 2012 NTX doesn't burst into flames this spring. So if all the ducks line up I may be there. :grin:

 75 days folks , get those bikes ready and check out your camping gear . With the warm Winter so far , betting it will be warm in late April . Anyone interested in a trip down to the tall grass preserve in Oklahoma , maybe see some Bison ? Or more accurately , the Woolaroc museum , about 65 miles .

 Getting closer than you think folks , start making those plans . Heck , at least two of the staff will be in attendance , you can bitch at us in person , although if you want to get fed and not duct taped to a tree ... Sorry , my emos are on another break LOL .
 
 So , Doug and I need to start getting a head count , and like last year , T-shirts will be available by

He's certainly going to have a more interesting route to get there too from Warshington!  I'm going to have to find some twisties along the way up from Houston, most of it looks straight as an arrow on the map!  Might have to do some zig-zagging and take a leisurely route up....for some reason, the lyrics to this song just came to mind!

And I didn't slow down 'til I was almost to Arkansas
Well, I think I'm gonna reroute my trip

Frank and Lola's is a great place, Dusty.  Mike did an Okie Lunch there.  Great green chili.  Also a music venue (but I've not been there that late).

Finally got the EV running.  It's not dripping gas and runs good.  I've even fixed the dash lights and fuel level indicator  <knock wood>

I would say join us in Colorado for a few days before Cedar Vale, but the hundreds and hundreds of miles of prairie to get west of I-25 is a bit of a drag.

It's still on the riding calendar.  Been working on the Stelvio replacement bike, getting it ready to ride.  Have it  pretty close.  Had it out Saturday (70 degrees and really nice) -- no leaks, runs pretty strong, cruise is working nicely.  Now the only thing is a Laminar Lip on the windshield for a bit more protection.

Still need to figure out the path to CV.  It's a two-day ride for me in both directions so will look for one path going out and another coming home.

Ride safe.

 Had a couple of questions regarding food at our little soiree . There is a wonderful cafe in town for lunch , or whatever . Traditionally , we have cooked on Fri night , and do the catfish and hush puppy meal for Sat night . For the early Thur arrivals , we usually figure out something for eo vening meal . Don't yet know about breakfast , last year we cooked Sat morning , but that meant I spent all day Sat cooking , so this year , well , we will see . There is a decent store in town for our last minute needs . We have discussed riding to Woolaroc on Sat this year , and Lowryter has suggested a good restaurant in Bartlesville OK . While we call this an NAR , we truly try to make this as pleasant and stress free as possible for the attendees , although any and all help is welcome  :thumb:

 Oh , watch this space for T shirts , Doug is working on this year's design . $20.00 US , most of the proceeds go to help defray rally costs , and we make a donation to Luap for allowing us to promote Cedar Vale on WG . We will need to start taking a head count so we can pre order the catfish and T shirts . Doug will provide a mailing address for mailing T shirt checks .

Hey guys! Haven't been on the forum in awhile. Been busy. Will be at the CVNAR this year. Tell Doug to save a 2xl for me! Going to order new tires and tubes friday morning. Fresh pan off oil change service. Depending on weather outlook, may even bring a human powered bike along. Weather will decide which one. Fat tire or cruiser.

Bring on the 2016 riding season! :bike-037:

Rain is fine...no twisters though please! 

Practically have my friend in the 3 Wheel Morgan convinced to do the ride as well...assuming he'd be welcome...as he is the official owner of the Griso I am fostering...took it out for a ride today with the GoPro mounted...lots of fun, will take it for a longer run on Sunday!

Do any of you folks attending the Cedar Vale rally have this Guzzidiag diagnostic program?   I would really love to see this thing in action and learn how to use it.  I'm not especially computer savvy, so it would be pretty painful for me to try to do this by myself. 

Anyway, if this Guzzidiag and related components are the kind of thing that can easily be transported to the rally, and you don't mind giving me a tutorial, I'd certainly be interested. 

Thanks

        What model bike do you have? I've been using Guzzidiag, TunerPro, and Reader/Writer to tune my 15M and 15RC ecu for my CalVin. If Dusty has some of that there new-fangled 'Lectricity stuff there we could give it a go if you have either of those ecu's.

Just kidding. 

It's still on my radar for sure.  Am looking forward to it.  It was either Homer or this thing and I've been to Homer a few times.  Never been to Cedar Vale.  Back to back rally weekends are an impossibility for this working stiff.

I'm still planning on being there.  I shipped the shocks from my bike out to Oklahoma City for a rebuild.  I expect to leave here on the 20th and head there.  I will probably be in Cedar Vale on the 21st.  Looking forward to it, although I will be in a four-wheeler instead of on the bike.

Ride safe.

Man, y'all have a lot better weathermen than we have in Texas as they can't even predict the weather for the next day. At the


Texas rally in Lindale those with the fancy weather gizmos were all saying "Lookee here at this big storm coming in." Never got a drop!

Assuming all goes well...I leave Toronto tomorrow morning, and land in Houston mid morning, make sure no damage from any flooding and then tank up and go.

With all of the flooding, I hope that the routes out of town are not closed or muddy or maybe I'll have to re-route a bit to bypass the worst of it.  I will have to check routing, but would like to get a few hours down the road Thursday to be able to arrive Friday evening as well.  Everything north and east of Houston seems to have been nailed with rain as well, and the forecast seems to be for more rain tonight and tomorrow...hoping that doesn't delay departure until Friday.

Hoping for nice weather up and back...

Sorry I am getting there a little late.  I have to mow the lawn, get the trailer, and get brakes on the EV if they come in by noon.  So I can pack tomorrow.  Right now my plan is to get to CV before noon on Friday. 

What if we met for lunch (say 1 pm) in Wichita and then went to Augusta in the afternoon?  THat would give me an hour or so to ride up for lunch.  SInce you're coming from the west you could meet for lunch.

Call me 405 774 3599 and we can confirm the schedule.  Anyway you cut it, there can always be glitches.  Lunch recommendations would be appreciated.  I've heard the museum is really good.

13 of us rode to Augusta to the museum.  It's really good.  Brough, Harleys, Indian, 6 cyl Indian, board trackers, Brits, maybe 50 bikes, originals and restored +. 


65 miles to get these 100 to get back on the shortcut.

All is well here.

Here are a few pictures from the new motorcycle museum in Augusta, KS. Some seriously interesting and high dollar antique motorcycles. Very well done! Sorry, I did not take any indoor shots. The antique bikes in the pictures are run regularly in the area.
The last photo was the quiant little lodge that us wimps stayed at.

I was told that I was pretty close to jail on couple of occasions.  That part Kansas is pretty wide open.  But I never saw any lawmen.

I suppose ignorance was bliss.

Well, the Guzzi charm works again.  The V7 got me home after she got a fresh set of spark plugs.

Thanks to Paul, Dusty, and Dave for sticking by me, wrenching, and fetching parts.

And thanks to Doug, Dusty, and everyone else who pitched in to cook, organize, make T-shirts, and generally get this thing off the ground.

Wish I were closer ... not yet retired so work prevents longer rides.  One of these days, I'd like to meet Dusty and other Wild guzzi regulars.  And I love small-town America, grew up in small towns of southeast Missouri.  Been in a city my whole adult life and enjoy the occasional foray to a quieter, slower pace of life.

Very nice campground.  I hated to leave so early but when I got home at 1:00 Saturday, I had a 103* fever.  The moldy tent wiped me out.  I slept all day and night and felt like new again on Sunday to put in 8 hours at a dentist office upgrading all their stuff and then home in time to mow before dark..

No rest for the wicked.  What's scary is I don't remember the last 45 miles of my ride home...

1st decision of the Supreme Guzzi leader of the Cedar Vale Commune - Add another bathroom!  :)

We could suspend a giant screen inside the barn and show movies as well next time...maybe even a Moto GP race or two and we could alternate commentators!  That would be almost as amusing as the camp fire discussion on Marquez/Rossi!

What a great place, great people, great camping, perfect weather...thanks to Dusty and Delrod for a really great gathering of the Guzzisti and to all who showed up...it was great fun!

What the hell, Dusty, two bikes from Alma,Arkansas and no a mention.

We enjoyed the outing and meeting many people that I had only known on the forum.

Rocker 59, I must apologize, I hello but could not remember your name. Old age allows you to meet new people almost every hour.

We enjoyed the venue and the turn out, we did not enjoy the wind on the way back home. Harrelyn's GPS went out and the wind was taking her strength away at an alarming rate, but it was her first ride of the season. After a few days rest she will be ready again.

Dusty you and DelRod did Yoeman's work for the rest of us, THANK YOU both.

Next year?

Good Luck

Rocker 59, I must apologize, I hello but could not remember your name. Old age allows you to meet new people almost every hour.

No worries.  Good to see you both out riding!



 we did not enjoy the wind on the way back home. 

Man!  It was fierce, wasn't it?  The wind was a little gusty heading east to Joplin, but not too bad.

But, when I turned south at Joplin, it was nasty.  25-30 mph south wind straight in the face.  Add 70ish mph rolling speed, and that last 70 miles was pretty tiring, the Dart Flyscreen showing it's limitations.

Well having breakfast in needles ca this morning on the last leg!

 Yesterday was special with wind across NM and AZ 32 gust to 52 out of the SW. Flagstaff had heavy snow in places with that wind but the temp was 37* so not slick.

This am light winds to cross the Mojave (144 miles of nothing). Faring rattling but hanging in there!

Thanks to Mr. D and Delrod and wife!! a very good bunch indeed.
Happy to hear that big john and tim made it home with no oil leak!!!(check that vent!)

Headed to SEA tomorrow and back to work.

Cedar Vale is a real jewel!!!Looking forward to #6.

:-)

P.S.

Nice to meet some of the people on the forum..that makes it extra special!

And thanks to PJPR01 for the great stickers!!

Dusty recognized the "original six" at the first Cedar Vale rally. It's growing nicely. Well done. A few more pics.

I'm not sure if I am posting pic's correctly. The only way to know is hit the button. Here goes. Apologies in advance.

You know what? I give up trying. I have "modified" this post a half dozen times and can't seem to get any pic's to work. Look's like enough people are doing it correctly so the others have an idea of how the weekend went. I'm done with this electronic crap for today. Think I'll hit the garage for a while. Thanks again to Dusty and crew. Until next time.

You have to upload your photos to a hosting site like Smugmug or Photobucket, etc.

Then use HTML [img] tags to link it in your post.

Watching the weather pattern, we certainly lucked out with some incredible 4 days of sunshine and perfect weather for this year's Festival under the pines at CV...just a few days later and I'm afraid tents and motorcycles would be blowing over at Hewins Park.

You might be in luck.  I understand that Price Tower is a boutique hotel.  This was Wright's only "high rise"  (10 stories).  The ride to B'ville is about 60 miles from Cedar Vale add another dozen miles to Woolaroc.  The museum is all western art, like Remington's.  There is huge gun collections, like Colt's.  The airplane won the 1927 prize winning the race from Oakland to Honolulu.

50 people at a rally that started with 6 not too long ago? That's going to double the size of the town! Dusty, you must be doing something right. I sure can't figure it out. Must be the hush puppies.

Glad to see you checking in Tim, don't be a stranger. And yes, dusty is the Charlie Daniels of hush puppies!

 A little over a week since returning home from our little soiree in Kansas , just a few observations :

 The people of Cedar Vale treat us really well .
 The museum was a very pleasant surprise
 We seem to get the best rally pictures , thanks to the photogs  :bow:
 The hot water shower makes Hewins Park the perfect place for a camp out
 The weather was perfect this year 
 Doug was and is amazing , thanks my friend  :thumb:

 And ...
 A GREAT BIG THANK YOU to everyone who attends , some of you travel one hell of a long way to join us for the Cedar Vale NAR , it is the people that make this camp out so wonderful , so all of you take a  :bow:
 Oh , and a special shout out to Rod (AM General) for feeding us on Friday night  :thumb:

We are naming our Cedar Vale camp out


                                                 The Cedar Vale
                                         Not a National Not a Rally                                             



 For 2017 the dates will be Apr 21 - 23 , with of course several of us getting there on Thur the 20th . Start making reservations now , the city has promised a surprise if we can attract 50 attendees .

They have a drunk tank that big?  :bow:

 Well , our little soiree in SE Kansas has grown to the point where some involvement from the small town of Cedar Vale has become necessary . So for the 2017 version , the town will be providing the needed "kitchen" for the preparation of Sat night's catfish fry . We will be inviting a limited number of locals to the dinner , the city will be selling tickets as a fundraiser for the town coffers . No worries about labor , as the extra hands will be provided by a couple of local civic groups . The fish and hush puppies will still be handled by your's truly .  Sat morning breakfast will be provided by the city , same as last year , for a small donation . As for Thurs and Fri meals , we , can work that out as we further develop the plan . There is a very good local cafe for those who choose to go that way .

 Now for the bad part . Seems we will need to charge a nominal fee of $25.00 for two nights camping and the Sat night meal . For you Thurs folks , maybe an extra couple of bucks to cover what the city will need , and donations will be taken up for the fire wood , normally about a buck per attendee . There is electricity for those of you who need it . Will be providing contact info for deposits by PM .

 I really want to thank Doug and everyone else who has helped grow what was originally intended as a one time deal into now the 5th annual Cedar Vale camp out  :bow:

 Oh , and yes this is a bit early , but we have commitments from several folks travelling long distances (Chuck in Indiana and his lovely wife Dorcia) .

 Let's hope the weather is great , and that we see maybe 65 this year  :thumb:

25 bucks for two nights camping and a catfish dinner is cheap.

Cedar Vale has been very accommodating in the past.  A fine example of small town hospitality.
They certainly deserve our continued support.

Woolaroc is a nice To or Fro the rally.

So no spark plugs needed.   But you can add to my custom specimen bottle.

Bartlesville is certainly the better side of CV (although an hour away).  I can recommend Woolarc and Frank and Lolas for the Green Chile burger. 

For you campers in CV, Dusty tells me they will open the showers at the swimming pool.  And the local cafe has a rib eye on Friday night.  And the bike museum in Augusta, KS (Wichita). 

Unfortunately, I am sure that some may go to MotoGP at COTA that weekend.

This is a long time from now.  I don't even have my 2017 calendar yet.  Also, the rally is about 700 miles from me, so that means two days in each direction and the weather that time of year can be really questionable.

However, I will put it on my calendar and see how things work out.  Had a great time at the recent Okie Rally and would expect the same good time at this one.  Would look forward to seeing all of you again.

 For those of you who are disappointed that an official National has not been scheduled for 2017 , consider attending our little gathering in Cedar Vale . A couple of members here that have made plans for coming have suggested they will consider this event their national for the year . Plenty of room for hundreds . Details above .

 Sorry , one more update . Chuckie has suggested we move the dates into the middle of May to accommodate the Northern folks . CV was only ever meant to be a small regional gathering , and so late April was when it fit . However , if there is enough interest , and we hear of this in the next few days , we will move the dates . Thanks .

As we all learned in 3rd grade, the gravity center of the contiguous United States is 39 degrees, 50 feet, North and 98 degrees, 35 feet West.

Where is that precisely?  Who really cares??? 

Bottom line, that mythical spot is about 270 miles north of real live, non-mythical Cedar Vail, Kansas (a/k/a Seadur Veil).

Which is "close enough" for gubmint or Guzzi work.  Our Northern Guzzi riders can just hang onto the bars for another 3 hours.

Folks, Dusty tells me we have essentially unlimited camping space.   An enormous pavilion featuring Old World craftsmanship.   

I'm in.   Who else wants to join us at Seder Veil, Kansas?  (A/K/A "Seedar Vale" on some maps)

 Fellas , no matter when we have CV , it will conflict with something . Are they even having the LA state rally next year , and the moto gp race in Austin , well , considering the volatile nature of gp racing who knows how long that will last  :shocked: Seriously Gliderjohn has already expressed concern that moving it back a couple of weeks will lead to conflict with the Kansas state rally , so you can see my dilemma here . As I stated earlier , CV was never intended to be anything more than a small regional rally , but we have grown , and continue to grow , so we keep having it . Was just offering the folks jonesing for a national gathering that was centrally located and had a physical plant capable of handling a large crowd someplace to go .

 Anyway , will need to make a decision in a week or so , logistical details need to be worked out with the town , and some of the attendees are making reservations . Speak up now , or forever hold your peace .

I'm leaning towards moving Sedur Vale back a bit. 

Yes, it might make for two rallies in Kansas close together.  But nothing else ever happens in Kansas, right?   Ought to make them Kansas boys happy to have twice the action.  :cheesy:

My concern is mainly for people riding in from out of state that would probably like to do both rallies but may end up having to choose between one or the other if they are close together. Whatever your opinions concerning MGNOC the Council Grove rally carries in the tradition of Kanas hosting longest stretch of Guzzi Rallies in the USA.

That's a good point John.   Looks like the 46th Annual Kansas Moto Guzzi Rally is scheduled for June 2-4, 2017.

It doesn't matter to me personally--I may go to both events anyway.

 Looks like maybe May 5-7 would be the very latest workable dates . Basically 2 weeks later than the last 4 years . No way to predict the weather that far out . We want to respect the other events , but at some point a decision must be made . There were no LA rallies the last two years , due to either rain or lack of a promoter . The goal here is to balance the wants of the folks that have supported CV for the last 4 years , while giving consideration to Guzzi folks from colder climates who might like to attend . The decision will be made Fri of this week .

 A couple of points , there is a small motel in town , and also a small hunting lodge with dorm style housing . Also , the pavilion is enormous , rain will not present any real issues . The town works with us to make the rally work , we just need a good head count . Thanks

That will be your toughest job. Getting a bunch of Guzzi people heading in the same direction is like herding cats. :smiley: When Ron was doing the Virginia rally he told me that he figured attendance on 3X the pre registrations. That's what makes it so tough. You want and attendees expect to eat. When George does the Iowa rally, he makes it plain on how many he is prepared to feed. If you don't pre register, or just show up.. you might have to fend for yourself for food.  That makes perfect sense to me..

Sorry to disagree but LA Rally alive and well and was held last year.
1 week before Cedar Vale. We conned Mark  Perry into becomming LA State Rep and crowned him head Coon Ass and King of Homer.  We we're about to anoint him with hog fat and parade him naked through the town square, but Colleen Welch stopped us.

So , that should eliminate any concerns about lodging . The town will open the pool house which is next to the park for added restrooms .

Before I commit to going, Dusty, are you going to have an expresso machine by the pavilion?

And what blend?  I'd like Medaglio D'oro Perugia "Dark Blend."
 
I prefer this blend because it packs a sweet and bright fusion of orange and chocolate notes with a lingering caramel and wine-like berry finish.

No, I just saying if you can avoid that weekend, you're likely to get a better turn out.  IL is usually one of the larger rallies in the US, and since it's relatively close to KS, seems like a good idea to pick the 2nd or 4th weekend, all other things being equal, which I'm sure they are not!

Dusty,
A rally suggestion is to have wrist bands so you know who the paying members are and the free loaders that just want to come in, use the facility, drink coffee, etc and not pay. Maybe that is why some ride in Cadillacs and I have a 77 GMC. I'd ride a mule before I'd cheat the organizers out of a rally fee.

Maybe that is why some ride in Cadillacs and I have a 77 GMC. I'd ride a mule before I'd cheat the organizers out of a rally fee.

Tex

I don't think freeloaders have ever been a problem at CV. We make sure that doesn't happen by inviting outsiders in to join us👀

 A couple of things to add .

 The original Cedar Vale six , Delrod , Guzzistajohn , Ozarksguzzi (Tim), Kirby 1923 , fubarguzzi , and myself , sort of worked out the Cedar Vale camp out culture sitting around the fire on Saturday evening in April of 2013 . We decided the idea was to have a relaxed atmosphere , only one rule which we attribute to John , "Don't be an A hole" , and to have fun . Those ideas still hold even as we have grown every year , probably the single most important factor in that constant growth . Seriously, I never believed there would even be a second CV , let alone a fifth which we hope will be as much fun as the first four . I remember sitting at the fire on Sat evening when John asked "So same time next year ?" , and the smiles and nods of agreement . Hmm , maybe we can blame GJ for all of this  :evil:

 Anyway , while things have changed just a bit , and if we are to have a Knotanational it will require a bit more organization and participation from the town , we can certainly make this happen .

 The city has offered to do a BBQ on Fri evening , and we will work out the price of that . Sat morning breakfast will provided by the C of C , probably on a donation basis . Last year they made some wonderful breakfast burritos .

 Oh , and for those of you traveling long distances , or who might have a scheduling problem . We can stay thru until , well , whenever . If we have anyone needing an extra day or two to decompress , I will stay around to help out .

 So , as stated before , we will require a 25 buck deposit , 35 for couples . This will cover camping , the Sat night meal , and probably most other incidental expenses . We do need to get a good head count so everyone gets fed .

Most Everything You Need to Know About the Cedar Vale Knotanational Knotarally. 

When is it? 

May 5-7, 2017 on the Gregorian calendar.  On the Chinese calendar, it's the 10th through 12th days of the 4th lunar month (i.e. Din-You, Year of the Rooster).

Where is it? 

Cedar Vale, Kansas.  The Gem City of the Sunflower State, in Chautauqua County, Kansas.

Coordinates: 37 degrees, 6 feet, and 18 inches North by 96 degrees, 30
feet, and 3 inches West. 

More specifically, the Hewins Park Pavilion located on 101 Salebarn Road, Cedar Vale, Kansas. 

http://www.cedarvalekansas.com/3/miscellaneous3.htm

The pavilion was built in 1913 by a Mr. Chester A. Bradley, and designed by architect Mr. Hayland.   It is huge.  Indeed, the National Historic Register officially classifies it as a "big a** pavilion."  It even has a stage, side doors, 3 secret rooms and 2 tunnels.

https://focus.nps.gov/pdfhost/docs/NRHP/Text/07000602.pdf

There is *plenty* of space for camping and RVs in the bucolic park surrounding the huge pavilion.  There are toilets, electricity, and cold water showers.   Dusty may bring in additional Port-a-Potties or gain us access to other civilized facilities.

What supplies are available in Seadur Vale?

Gas, beer, ice and typical convenience store sundries are available at the Conoco gas station in town.  There is also the Cedar Vale Market, a regular grocery store that stays open until about 6:00. 

If you need to buy hard liquor, there's a store in nearby Sedan.  Not sure about ammo or macrame supplies.

Cedar Vale also has the Hilltop Restaurant, supposed to be pretty good.  Pizza and other more exotic foods are available in nearby towns such as Sedan and Ark City

What if I don't want to camp?

There may be extra bunk space in one of the RVs likely to be brought to the site by fellow Guzzi enthusiasts.   Let Dusty know and he'll try to hook you up. 

The Cedar Creek Lodge is an easy, 3 block walk from the park.   Phone (620) 249-9362.  Cheap and basic lodgings.   GliderJohn and I have both stayed there, and I probably will again.

Another place is the Hunter's Roost.  Phone (620) 758-2498.

Dusty tells me there may be up to 3 private homes in Cedar Vale available for rent.  Still working on details, but if anyone is interested in a house rental, please let us know. 

What is there to do in Cedar Vale itself? 

Well, of course we will have the usual Guzzi rally stuff in the park--snacking, dining, visiting friends, telling lies, bench racing, tire-kicking, campfires, music, sing-a-longs, and interpretive dance.   We will have the usual competitions such as beard growing, suspender snapping, the evening spelling bee, and arm wrestling (Kansas style, not using Texas rules). 

Despite the issues last year, Dusty promises to bring back Midnight Mumblety-Peg.  We can count on disturbing  but memorable jokes by SickBay from Louisiana.  Voice impressions by Paul from Houston.  Plus Dusty is an accomplished mime. 

And I'm sure there will be the annual tradition of fixing whatever is wrong with motorcycles owned by me or Fubar. 

Lookout Mountain is right next to the park.   It is what they call a "teener" mountain in Kansas, soaring to the majestic height of 1,248 feet above the valley.  The road to the peak is privately owned, but Dusty has connections and we can probably get the owner to open the gate for us so that we may ascend from our base camp at the pavilion all the way to the summit.  I think this was part of the Great Osage Trail (Black Dog Trail).

There is a nice history museum in Cedar Vale.  Again, Dusty is working his connections, and will probably be able to have the museum opened for our little group.  There are rumors that the friendly townsfolk will be selling coffee and home-made pie at the museum. 

What about day trips from Cedar Vale?

This area of Kansas may surprise you if you think of Kansas as nothing but flat farmland.  Lots of interesting roads, with rolling hills, vales, and curves.  And lots of dirt/gravel roads that are easily rideable by street bikes. Details on request or available at the rally. 

There are two good motorcycle museums within day trip range of Cedar Vale.  Twisted Oz Motorcycle Museum in Augusta, KS is 68 miles northwest.

http://www.twistedoz.com/

And the Kansas Motorcycle Museum is 156 miles northwest in Marquette, KS.

http://www.ksmotorcyclemuseum.org/

62 miles southeast of Cedir Vale is the Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve (about 12 miles south of Bartlesville, OK).  Well worth the trip--bison and wild critters, Native American artifacts and art, and one of the finest gun collections extant--especially old Colt firearms. 

http://www.woolaroc.org/

Also near Bartlesville is the Price Tower, the only sky-scraper built from Frank Lloyd Wright's design.

If you like green chilies and food made from green chilies, I'm told you need to check out Frank and Lola's in downtown Bartlesville. 

http://frankandlolas.com/

About 650 feet below ground, and 130 miles northwest of Cedar Vale, is the Strataca Salt Mine--an operating salt mine open to the public for tours in Hutchinson, KS.   

http://underkansas.org/

Also in Hutchinson is the Cosmosphere museum, with a huge collection of missiles and space stuff, including Nazi V1 and V2 missiles, lots of Russkie space stuff, and the actual command module from the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission.

http://cosmo.org/

Speaking of old guns and ill-fated missions, Coffeyville, Kansas is about 53 miles east of Cedar Vale.   On Oct 5, 1892, the Dalton gang attempted to out-outlaw the James gang by robbing two banks at once in broad daylight.  Fail!  The gang was shot to pieces in Death Alley after the locals armed themselves at Isham's Hardware Store next door.  Three members of the gang still reside in Coffeyville, down at the local cemetery. 

The Coffeyville area and the nearby Verdigris River basin also boast the distinction of being the lowest point in the State of Kansas, at 679 feet above sea level. 

West Mineral, Kansas is home of Big Brutus, a huge coal mining steam shovel and associated museum.  Or maybe it was electric.  Not sure, but the big brute is retired now about 107 miles east of Cedar Vale. 

Arkansas is renowned for its wonderful, curvy and scenic motorcycle roads.  The Arkansas Ozarks are a mere 200 miles to the southeast.

17 miles west of Cedar Vale is the site of the nation's first helium mine in Dexter, Kansas.

http://kuhistory.com/articles/high-on-helium/

The locals were bummed that the gas from this well would not burn, but attitudes changed when Kansas scientists figured out the "Dexter gas" contained helium, and helium became useful for blimps in WWI, and atomic weapons in WWII.  The Germans used hydrogen in their blimps.  Unlike Dexter Gas, hydrogen burns quite vigorously.

Also in Dexter is Henry's Candy Company, a candy making factory more than 50 years old.   And yes, they sell candy.   

As the man said, "Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right . . . "   Sure enough, 19 miles west of Cedar Vale is the home of the World's Most Famous Clown, a/k/a Weary Willie, a/k/a Emmett Kelly.  Sedan now has a museum dedicated to its famous native son.  That's all I'll say about this because clowns creep me out. 

All I know about Wichita, 79 miles northwest of Cedar Vale, is that GliderJohn thinks highly of the BBQ at the "Pig In! Pig Out! Restaurant."

Folks, please chime in, correct any of my errors, and add your own information or mindless persiflage about Cedar Vale and the surrounding area. 

Oh.

And please come join us at the Knotanational
Knotarally in Cedar Vale, Kansas.

 There has been some discussion about the lack of curves in Kansas . Fortunately there is a nice piece of swervery going out of town on the old highway . No , not very long , maybe 3/4 of a mile , but no traffic . Mention this because some of you guys seem to be challenging others to a contest of skill  :grin: AND , for those in the mood , just South of the Kansas Oklahoma line there are some decent roads .

The park and pavilion would make for some great looking shots from a drone. There are some stone bridges in the region which also may be fun get unique pictures from a drone's point of view. If anyone could swing bringing one you probably wouldn't be disappointed.

Back in the day, I was a corner worker at SCCA sports car races at IRP (Indianapolis Raceway Park).  We had an opportunity to see very inexperienced drivers do dumb things -- slide off into the dirt, roll their cars, crash into each other, etc.  It was fun and we got paid for our time.

Is that what this is about?  What's our pay?

So I checked my calendar and discovered that it is the same weekend as the Arizona "Gathering of Eagles" NAR. I was planning on attending that and Overland Expo the next weekend in Flagstaff.
Now I'm going to have to make a decision.

We're spreading the word here.  You can about 85% count on two of us from our Mountain.  LaSandra and I are going to do our best to be there.  Maybe just a day trip, but we'll see.  My dad may be up to it by then too with his new hip and all.

Sounds like fun, just a hop skip and a jump for me, drove by there Monday on the way to Norton, Ks. Can we go for fried chicken in Bronson and to see Big Brutus?
I'm in for this!

 We are going to have a motorcycle display in downtown to run in concurrently with the opening of the city museum .  If there is enough interest in doing this as a show , the mayor and other dignitaries have volunteered to act as judges . We can have categories like , most bug splats , most unusual method of carrying stuff , funniest stickers , etc . Open to ideas here , speak up .

Drones in the air...drones on the ground!  Jokers to the left, clowns to the right!  A drone sounds like a blast!  Enjoy winter....it's been 65-70 and blue skies this past weekend and the forecast is for more of the same!   

I'm going to experiment with bringing my portable projector as well so I can flash up the crew on a wide screen format...I guess the folks in Cottonwood will have to be huddled around a laptop unless one of you guys also has a projector.

Speaking of Datil...just a couple of months ago, we drove thru, got some pie at Pietown on the last day of the season!  Scrumptiously delicious as always, just like all other pilgrimages to the Pie Capital!

You're probably joking, but here are some classes to consider if you want to do a bike show. They are fun for everyone though, and these categories can be used  for any make.
Adventure
Classic (Over 20 years)
Cruiser
Sport
Tourer

And maybe a Best In Show.

Now, if someone had a V7 Sport with a fairing, bags, knobbies, and fork gaiters that would be quite a conundrum  :grin:

 When I first started going to "The Vale" in '68 the highway ran right thru town and just North of the park . Lots more traffic , and usually there were a couple of families travelling cross country who were camped in Hewins Park . One of those things we lost by building bypasses around all of our small towns . CV had a theater , and a thriving downtown , sadly all gone now .

...is the first, dare I ask...

the largest (perhaps) is in Darwin, Minnesota.  In some ways, I have more respect for a claim of 2nd.  Most places that claim to have the 1st of something won't be able to tell you who is number 2, which, of course, puts a shadow over their claim to be first.

Greensburg, Kansas claims to have the worlds largest hand-dug well.  That's ludicrous to begin with, but if you ask them (as I have) "which well is number two?"  They cannot answer.  However, I'll accept that it's the worlds largest hand-dug well in Kansas.

This is so clearly a rally. It looks to me as though it is shaping up to be both a big one and a good one, one that I wish I could attend.

But I remain utterly confused about the "not-a-rally" thing. What is that? Why is that?

The manner in which it was explained to me was that rallys require insurance, while just a bunch of folks arriving in a location at the same time does not.

So, with this N.A.R. not being 'sanctioned' by the MGNOC, does that make this an 'outlaw' event? Would this, then make the attendees outlaws? I can see it now - does MGNOC give demerits for non conformal behaviour? :evil:

Good heavens; let's not go down this road.

From the very earliest MGNOC events--decades ago--even the national event was emphasized as only being a "get-together" and definitely not a rally.  Never a rally.  Many Guzzi riders of the day shunned the largest rally of that time (Aspencade in New Mexico) for exactly the reason that it was a rally.  I guess we're quirky that way...

This Cedar Vale thing is entirely in keeping with that philosophy, and naturally enough, many of those attending are members of the MGNOC.

I just secured the last available room at the cedar creek lodge, maybe the last one available in town.  Talk about luck.  I was told the next step was to get something in Ark City.

We'll only be staying Friday night though and heading home after dinner Saturday night, so if someone wants the room Saturday night, I can probably help with arranging that.

I'm working some other stuff to help with CV as much as I can, but keeping it under wraps for now because of uncertainty.  But, if it happens, this is going to be one heck of a shin-dig folks.

North West and North East Kansas is a long ways from South Central Cedar Vale. 

The Seven Bridges Ride looks interesting and is on the way to the Oz Museum from CV. 

I've Google Mapped the route in case anyone wants to take the ride.  I would suggest that you might call the Oz Museum in Albany first if you decide to ride there.

 Sorry fellas , been a bit derelict in my duties , promise to redirect some energy and focus to the Knotanational .

 The mayor called this morning , which reminded me that we are getting close . What we kind of need is some kind of
informal head count . Some of you folks that participate on other social media have indicated there is interest beyond what
we are aware of on WG , if you would please , do a quick informal count there . Thanks .

 The city will do a BBQ on Friday evening , and breakfast Saturday morning as fundraisers . Told the mayor she could probably
count on 110 or so for the BBQ , and maybe 1/2 that for breakfast . Guessing $9.00 for the BBQ , and around $6.00 for the
breakfast . Of course the rally fee of $25.00 will include Saturday evening meal , camping , and most of the incidentals .

 Still looking for someone to manage the bike show on Saturday , thought we should have it start around 4:PM in downtown
CV , am inviting riders from the surrounding area to join us for that so we can show them what real motorbikes look like  :laugh:

Dusty--Urgent Development!

I was on the verge of posting the design for the Cedar Vale T-shirts when I got an alarming phone call from an unnamed source on my red phone.

Per my reliable but unnamed source, your rally site at Cedar Vale was . . . and maybe still is . . . the home of the Progressive Communist Community, a utopian society of, well, communists!!!  This group included the Russian Revolutionary Nikolai Tchaikovsky, well known to history for his role in the 1917 Russian Revolution.    This Cedar Vale communist community apparently practiced nudism and even vegetarianism, the details of which I shall spare the reader.

Frankly, I am concerned that my T-shirt design may be "hacked" by the Russkies.   Perhaps even the rally itself will be hacked.

Is my information about Cedar Vale correct?

Can you provide assurance as to rally security? 

Standing by . . .

OK guys this is the way wild rumors get started.  Now the forum will be monitored by MGNOC, the AMA and GRIT, not to mention MI5 and 6,  the KGB, FBI and the OSS.  This rumor mill must stop!

In my early years of teaching, my students knew I rode, and had a dog named Bandito.  Neighbor kids knew I was President of the neighborhood association.  Next thing I know I'm in the Principal's office because some parent was concerned that I was President of the Banditos MC Club.

The Communist Party is illegal in Kansas. You can rest assured that any nefarious activity on the part of Russian interlopers will be dealt with swiftly and decisively by local law enforcement.

Kansas Statues Annotated

Article 1. - GENERAL PROVISIONS

25-117. Same; affidavit of newly organized party; filing. No newly organized political party shall be recognized or qualified to participate or permitted to have the names of its candidates printed on the ballot in any election in this state until it has filed an affidavit, by the officers of the party in the state, under oath that:

(a) It is not directly or indirectly affiliated by any means whatsoever with the Communist party of the United States, the Communist international,
or any other foreign agency, political party, organization or government; or

(b) that it does not either directly or indirectly advocate, teach, justify, aid or abet the overthrow by force or violence, or by any unlawful means, of the government of the United States or this state; or

(c) it does not directly or indirectly carry on, advocate, teach, justify, aid or abet a program of sabotage, force and violence, sedition or treason against the government of the United States or this state.

The affidavit herein provided for shall be filed with the secretary of state and he shall make such investigation as he may deem necessary to determine the character and nature of the political doctrines of such proposed new party, and if he finds that such proposed new party advocates doctrines or has affiliations which are in violation of the provisions of this act, he shall not permit such party to participate in the election.

To the best of my knowledge the Pastafarians aren't particularly seditious, or allied with a foreign government, so as long as you can convince the election officials that the Flying Spaghetti Monster is a non-violent supernatural entity, you should be good to go.

 The prices I have negotiated for goods and services are all based on prepayment . About the money order thing , it is just easier , and my bank said they would prefer them over other forms of deposit . Believe it or not , putting all of this together requires a lot of effort from several people , just keeping things as simple as possible by eliminating certain variables .

For those who don't bring cash, I would assume the price (food available - not guaranteed) would be at least double the "prepayment" amount. 

That might provide motivation to send a money order in rather than bringing Bitcoin, Rubles or Sucres to the party! 

I'm pretty sure the bank in Cedar Vale won't have the desire to convert all these different currencies...

Now...if you're paying in Cold Shiner Bock currency...I'll front you the dollars!  :)

I'll second the need for deposits ASAP!! Dusty has pre-purchased a lot of food and needs to pay for various fees and charges.

Unlike a business he can't (and shouldn't!!) put out all these funds out of his own pocket.

Send those deposits in...this is going to be a GREAT time.
