This thread implies we don't vacation year round? Is that that due to weather or such?

All my trips are pretty much over...

Did a full family trip in the cage the last week of June into July. 9 days. PA to Cedar Point Ohio to 5 days in Ottawa.

The following Wednesday I took my son up to Montreal for a Video Game tournament. Met up with Rich (SailorRich) for a day of riding up there while Jr watched the tournament. Great city, great people and great food!

Got back Sunday night and the following Friday the Mrs and I along with a few friends went up to NH on the bikes. Stayed at the same place the fall rally was at last year. Right in the middle of everything and inexpensive.

Next trip will be this years fall rally in Lake George. Seriously thinking of getting up to Montreal that Saturday for lunch. Once you've had Poutine it kind of gets in your blood. You must have cheesy gravy fries!!!

Just got back from 3 days in N.C. Had the obligatory ride on the Dragon (x3), Cherohala Highway, Blue Ridge Parkway & Wheels Through Time in Maggie Valley. Stayed at Iron Horse and enjoyed it all with my younger brother. His first time, my third. And before this attended his daughter's wedding in Ohio.

WHEW!! :banana :banana :banana :banana :banana

The rockies in Oct can be fantastic but can also be snow and ice in the high country when you least expect it. In fact just a few weeks ago in the middle of July had about 20 minutes of terror through Wolf Creek pass with ice.
