I like Bob too and drink with him also. The only problem we ever had was when I tried to put my fob in his drink....  wussy.

By the way, the 'fob soaking' drink of choice at the national will be Scotch, 80 proof. We're going to extend the grain alcohol range a bit and stress test the fob seal.

I thought you already did the scotch test at the pizza gathering. Or was that something else?

Nope, that was beer. One of the rare times I drank beer and only thing because you would not let me put my fob in your beer. It was a Sam Adams as a matter of fact.

Here is the list:

Soda at the fall social event in CT.
Results: The fob worked when completely submerged, and the soda was somehow sweeter or better than it was before putting the fob in there.

Beer at the pizza thing in CT.
Results: The fob worked when completely submerged in beer. The beer tasted about the same as I remember it but I am not a big beer drinker.

Wine at the Spring Fling starting this Thurs:
Results: Unknown but I expect the same stunning performance from KiPass. The wine may be a Riesling or a White Zinfandel.

Scotch at the National in August:
Results: Unknown but at least the fob will have something to fend off that time. It will be a blended, cheap (young) scotch 'cause I don't like expensive (old) scotch. Although I expect the scotch to be somehow better after a good fob soaking.

Fob in water:



Fob in soda:



Cap'n Bob being terrorized by a fob / stove knob key combination (Known as a KiPass one- two):

Yep, the Green mountains are really nice riding. So are the White mountains further up the same state (Moose- mont). The resort where the national is going to be held is also very nice, especially if the official COG fire- maker is there and I hear that he will be in August. Sure it is a little dangerous but I promised we would touch up the scorched eves on the building when we left....

Better yet just pm him if he want to get the entire dileo.  I just registered my room, paid my dues, and I really dont think anybody really wants to talk about this at the rally :o.

Dispute the hoopla going on if I were not sch to be working during that time frame I would be there as it is about the people. The Parking Lot Socials are the most fun!
Damn Tony your not going to make this years rally?  Hypothetically; if you would be 'accidentally' swept over-board the recovery mission should last about a week.  Just think...after the miraculous recovery from being lost at sea for a week youll be frick'n famous.  Just a thought :-X

151 - What a coincidence. This is the number of rooms already booked at Mount Snow for the rally. This is going to be a well attended event. Don't miss out. Even the $49/night rooms at Snow Lake Lodge get you close to the rally action and all the great riding the rally area has to offer.  If you are planning on attending, please make reservations soon before rooms begin to get scarce.

If you haven't been to Vermont before, now is most definitely the time to come.  The deal we are getting on room rates is outstanding.    Vermont has a lot to offer in the Summer as anyone who has been there knows.  So come join the fun.  You will be glad you did.

Registration is nearing the 300 mark and rooms are filling fast.  The rally team is frantically getting prepared.  Latest news is Murph's Kits will sponsor Ice Cream for the first 300 at the No-Host Social Gathering Tuesday evening.

Book your rooms to make sure you have a place to stay and please register online for the event soon so the team has an idea of how many people to plan for.

OK..so I live only an hour and a half away from Killington..but maybe I'm thinking I might come over and stay one night just to hang and meet folks, do a day ride, that sort of thing. So, if you were to pick one night and day to ride, which would you guys suggest. Thanks in advance.
