Phil, I think you may be pointed a bit north for XS East 2015! It's going to take careful planning for me to make this one. I haven't been to the Adirondacks since I was a kid. I'd love to visit there again!

I will be attending this for sure. No excuses when it in your back yard. Let me know if help is needed with route planning. I know some good back roads out here on our way up to the 'dacks but probably not as many as the Grangers. Can't wait.

Hi Marty,
It has been while since i visited the Adirondacks too and never on the bike. The picture shows a parking lot crying out for a gathering of XS11's
I wonder if it will be warm enough for the pool

I don't wonder. I can assure you, it won't be warm enough. At least, not for me! Summer is only one week up there and I think it usually happens early in July. It sure is beautiful country. I expect we still have better pavement down here.

I may have to try and make this one. Haven't been to Lake George since 2000 or 2001 for an Americade rally. (Have photos somewhere...) Nice area. Quite a bit of camping available as well.

I am very excited to host this rally! Gary is still very busy at work so with Marty A's help I hope to be able to pull it off. I stopped at hotel last week while in Lake George it is a nice place. Not a lot of twisties ! but a very scenic area. I know with all the great friends we have made threw the years and hopefully some new ones we will have a great time.

Google maps has it at 551miles for me. I suppose if i can do the 495 to XSse at iron horse, then i should be able to do this too.
Up the eastern shore of Md, up the jersey turnpike then up I-87. Piece of cake.

686 miles and I would take some detours thru NJ to avoid the NJTPK and connect up to 287 which will run into the NYThruway...but I might be bringing a friend who has a real nice trailer to haul our bikes with...early plans
Alright Dena and Gary!!!
