Jerry,
THANKS for getting that Rally Site webpage setup for us.


and that all important link to Kingsland Rally Info:
EZ just click here: XSSE


Looking like we should have mainly XS11's at the Rally too ……….. what a concept for an XS11 rally

The pollen is flying and the cherry trees are already in bloom here so it won't be long now till we ride.

Jeff

Earl,

FANTASTIC
That is great news. I'm looking forward to it. We (the Atlanta group) should arrive Kingsland about the same time, 6pm to 7pm depending what we do for our lunch & gas/pit stops.
It seems we will have XSive Ralliers rolling in from all directions but East (unless someone is riding in on a submarine from Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base).
So far we have riders from NC, FL, GA & AL riding in. No one yet from far away trailering in that I know of.


Jeff

Long story. SWMBO wants to make a trip east to look at a house for retirement in eastern Iowa and was thinking about first couple weeks of April. I mentioned the XSSE rally and she said "Why don't you make plans to go since we will be east anyway?" So I have put in for vacation time, hope it gets approved, and if so will make reservations and join you guys if at all possible. I would be on my '06 Connie and possibly trailering it in. Would arrive evening of the 4th and depart on Monday.

Plans are in a state of flux yet. Will post when / if this comes to pass but I am hoping it does. Have never ridden in that part of the country and would like to meet some of the people behind the names.

Hi Jerry,
I hope you make it. don't tell your wife but Iowa is not on the way to Florida Good group of guys going and Jeff's rides are always good. The area is as Flat as Holland which will be a nice contrast to Colorado.
You will have to cross the Appalachian Mountains at some point. About as unlike the Rockies as you will find. So old they have been worn down to resemble giant hills.

Phil

Yep, Iowa is out of the way but will be stopping to see my mother and family in central Wisconsin. Will leave SWMBO at her sister's place (arranging to have a relative's car to use) and head to Georgia. On return will meet up with SWMBO at her sister's place and drive back to Iowa to re-visit any properties she thinks might be good candidates. Then Heidi-ho back to Colorado. Three weeks total.

Vacation was approved yesterday so I will be making reservations today. Depending on weather I may leave the truck and trailer in Wisconsin and ride the Connie to Georgia. To trailer or not will be a last-minute decision.

Will be adding a few bits to the rally web page over the weekend so take a look next week.

Hi Jeff, Ask Brent about the elusive Brunswick Stew another local specialty.
XSive rallies revolve around food and camaraderie.

Brent and I both prefer Brunswick Stew from Fresh Air in Jackson. That's our go to BBQ & Stew ride. We also like Brunswick Stew from Foggy Bottoms in Loganville. Don't even bother ordering it in Brunswick. It's not really a local specialty. They just lay claim to originating Brunswick Stew, not really specializing in it locally. VA & NC also have a rich tradition of a Brunswick Stew recipe. More of a mountains thing and if your meat is squirrel, pork or chicken plus hogs head. Local Specialty in Brunswick is more like Georgia Shrimp right off the boat. Or Scallops or fresh catch of the day. Brunswick Stew a rarity in Brunswick. And it is a small town. When the Marshside Grill in Brunswick specializes in Liver & Onions, Pot Roast, Country Fried steak you know the locals aren't eating squirrel stew. I don't recall ever even seeing Brunswick Stew on a restaurant menu in Brunswick. Longhorn is where the locals go. But there is some good food to be found.

In any case as you said, its the camaraderie and eating and talking and little bit of riding and more talking, then more eating. We are pretty good at that aren't we.

btw: did meet up with Brent for lunch yesterday and then we took a two cigar ride on a real twisty - twisty road five miles from my house. I've taken Ben on that bad boy. Only 3 miles but its all curves and hairpins and steep downhill curves into the next sharp curve going uphill. Very very technical demanding at 30mph. Becomes dangerous at 35mph. Got to have a death wish to take it at 40mph. Ben can vouch for that. Brent recalled being on that road once before. Driving a 28 ton Fire Truck. I think it is the most fun road in Georgia. Anyway, Brent and I rode it a few times back & forth then stopped for some talking and scenery looking. Spring is here. Trees turning green. yippie …………….

Jeff

Hi Jeff i still fondly recall the Atlanta twisty tour..lots of twists n turns..That was lots of fun...Got lost trying to rememeber them all..but that road around the lake with all the houses on the hillsides and nothing more than a squiggily line of a road winding around around that lake like a wild serpent...lots of big money homes but you got no time to gawk...

Just an FYI about the Days Inn Hotel rates. I got an email today that they are doing a spring sale. I easily rebooked the room for the 3 nights as they dropped their room night rate. It's now under $50 a night plus taxes.

So if you booked and paid more than $176 for the 3 nights, check to update the reservation there to save some bucks.
