The park is very picturesque, and the roads Guba takes us on are great.

Keith by all means please join us! It's a relaxing time to be had! That be me in Wilson's last picture at the right.

Anyone have any places they would like to visit in particular? I need to start planning rides...

That would make a permanent happy memory for every Rebel rider to join in. I'm planning my camper/rebel hauler in my spare time to travel the country.

Still looking for any ride input...

I'm looking at Google maps a lot these days. Not sure the restaurants will be open. So it might be all camp cooking.

Something like this. Wouldn't that be a hoot.

Nice day here? OH-278 to Park Rd 1

Bringing all we need to eat (and then some) with for the weekend. Did enjoy that 'Ribber' place though. Thinking we could still have a 'safe' get together one eve.

As long as the park does not cancel my cabin, we'll be there!

As usual, can't wait......and.......Katai is almost ready!

I made this route to include a couple of my favorite roads to ride over here around Marietta. I was going to bring it up to you when the Rally got closer, but just saw that you asked for input. I love 676 and 26, I haven't rode anything west of 555 on the loop. I was also planning on scouting it once I get running again, but problems persist. There is a diner 3 1/2 hours of driving into the route that I know is open. So it would be about 4 1/2 hours in if breaks are approximately 15 minutes each hour.

Loop

Mr. Johnson, I definitely appreciate the input! It looks like a good ride for sure. The reality, after years of riding this rally, most people like less than 250 miles and breaks tend to be anywhere from 30-45 minutes, not counting restaurant stops. I try to break about every hour. Last year I offered a ride that actually used some of those roads. But I will definitely take some of those roads and try to make a slightly shorter ride...676 and 26 will somehow try to be in the works. I try to plan 3 rides and offer them for votes on Friday evening. Then go from there. A lot of riders come from out of state, so I try to include points of interest in my stops.

Much appreciated, especially from a local guide! Many thanks!

I'm playing it by ear with the covid-19 issue; may or may not make it this year. If I get it (and recover), I'll be there. If not, will depend on how things stand. My son has it now and for him, symptoms are minor.

I think I may have had it already last February. My supervisor's son was on a basket ball team, got sick with high fever. Whole team got it. That was back in Jan/Feb. The coach went in for elective surgery over a month ago, and tested positive for the anti bodies. He said the only time he was sick was back when the whole team got it. Back in February I got a fever and it lasted for a whole day. For me they usually only last about a half day. I really felt out of sorts. I think my super may have been a carrier, he stated he never had any symptoms. I really thought about going home for the day! Other members of my department also got sick with with different effects. One guy kept complaining of the horrible cough he was going through "deep in his lungs",and stated he never got sick at this time of year.

I have not been tested, but I'm so curious if I have the anti bodies!!!! I still wear a mask to prevent spread! As they say, symptoms can take up to two weeks to show. Prevention and hand washing are key! I've been a raccoon with hand washing all my life, so no change there.

My son's FIL has it, and probably contracted it while in the hospital for blood clots in his lungs, which they were trying to dissolve so he could have open heart surgery for a 90% blocked major heart vessel. He's back in the hospital with low oxygen levels and pneumonia. They are deciding whether to put him on a C-pap machine or ventilator tonight. Not good with all his other health issues.

Just got off the phone with Wilson, looks like he won't be coming this year. He's playing it safe, I don't blame him.

Everyone be sure to bring a mask. Ohio looks like it may make it mandatory...

Letting everyone know that the Rally is on again this year. Once again I have cabin 43 rented.

Friday evening will be camp fire at my cabin, hopefully meet some new people, chili for dinner. We can decide which ride to take for Saturday.

Saturday will be the main ride. They usually last most of the day. Even though we make stops every hour or so, the ride can get tiresome. I try to include a restaurant stop so no one goes hungry. Last year we ate at the Triple Nickle Diner, but stops have included other places as well. Never know what sites we will see until we pick a ride.

If you think you will be attending for the whole weekend, you can either rent a cabin or camp ground at Lake Hope State park, Ohio State Parks & Watercraft or stay at a lodging of your choice. Anyone who shows up just for the ride on Saturday is welcome to attend the ride. There are no fee's collected other than what you owe the Park for your stay (no park entry fee's either).

I look forward to seeing the regulars who show up (there must be a reason :smile2:) and hopefully we will get some new people showing up as well.

Anything anyone want to visit or see? Input welcome.
the above link not good for cabins, maybe you can update ?? tks.
