Re: The 2019 Wild Guzzi National in Cedar Vale May 8-12 .

Had a great time down there with all of you. I told Luap that it really reminded me of the vibe that the rallies we went to when I was growing up had. Good people, fun, laughter, and shared passion for these two wheeled machines.  Here are some pictures I took. Nothing special, but I'll get better ones, next year. Plan on being there for the whole thing. As an aside, seeing my photos from the rally seems to have given my dad the itch, again. He's already talking about finding something small to mid sized to run around town on, and occasionally take down the highway. I'll be posting a general idea of what he's looking for in the swap meet section within the next week, so keep on eye out, there, in case any of you come across something that would fit him!




 Since we couldn't be in the Vale this weekend ...

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.

When Dusty says they have a really large pavillion, he's not kidding.



I've yet to see another like it.

 Probably taken in 2008

And to make the pavilion even more interesting, the frame structure is very interesting. I have not seen anything like any place else. A neat and unique century building.

CEDAR VALE (Chautauqua). Cedar Vale is located in a  valley near a cedar bluff on Cedar Creek. A pioneer, admiring the view, said it re­minded him of a  town by the name of Cedar Vale that he had read about in a  novel and requested that if ever a town be located here, it be named Cedar Vale. Shortly after this a town company was or­ganized and the name Cedar Vale was adopted. Cedar Vale was lo­cated in 1870 by a  town company on land filed upon by E. H. Davis. Davis refused to deed the land to the company but was finally per­suaded to do so under threat of hanging.
