Seems he's traded in his bike for a cruise ship. He has to hurry back from each trip so he doesn't miss the boat for the next one.

I think he may have something going on with a cabana boy somewhere in the Caribbean.

Tod? Give up riding? He's probably already got the Captain to drain the swimming pool on the poop deck so he can ride around inside it like one of those bowl tracks!

I died laughing. He's have a good come-back for this.

We have partnered this event with the VJMC.

For those of you planning to attend this rally, it really doesn't mean anything except that the rally will probably be even better and likely we'll have a bike show for those of you who want to show off your work.

Our goal is to have the resort sold out by 15 March, so don't delay making your reservation. There should be plenty of tent space for last minute fence sitters.

I believe I do. I have cabin/room 302 from 09/27 to 10/01, Thursday night to Monday morning.

Code:
Unit No.       Unit Type
302            SP T/K CS
I don't speak Iron Horse reservation geek code for the Unit Type but I think it's:

Semi-Private T/K ? CreekSide

T/K is probably the type of bed configurations available, Twin or King, so if it gets moved up to two people it'd be Twin.

If it's anything like the one Tod and Harry were in a couple years ago the beds are so close together you might as well be sleeping with your roomie.

I was in 102 last year and the beds aren't that bad, not as close as ten-in-a-two-man-tent or a bunkhouse.

There're pictures on the ironhorsenc.com site but they don't allow hot-linking their pictures, the finks:-

Thanks Scott..I just got off the computer with the IH staff..they have me reserved for a semi-private room ..Mountainside..with 2 beds...so I'm good..I think..theres still plenty of time to make amendments to the plan...I was in 302 a few yrs ago...been camping out in the trailer with Mark..but he is bringing the wife this year..plus i like a 2 or 3a.m. pee break without having to stagger a hundred yards to the public bathrooms..LOL

I know the feeling!

At Kremmling it was walking across the sharp and insanely loud and crunchy gravel in the middle of the night that was fun. At the Iron Horse there were two rooms with a shared bath so one person would get up and that'd start a late night geezer chain.

Ehhhhhh...Scott, we can't call others "geezer" anymore

I usually stay in the TajmaBrent when he's there. Last time it was the Bigfoot Arms though.
