Not all of us retired guys can afford an entire week. The guys that are still employed can't always be as flexible with their time off. I like to get there (where ever that may be) on Thursday & leave Monday. It avoids dealing with the weekend traffic (Friday afternoon rush hour) & generally makes travel a bit quicker, as most on the road during the week have a destination & a time frame, rather than just out for shopping or such.

Agreed, plus I have no desire to spend a week in a motel. I'm 450 miles away. One day riding down, two days socializing/riding, one day riding back. That's three nites in a motel, and pretty much my limit. I prefer traveling on weekdays, but if most leave Sunday AM (as seems was the norm last yr?) I'll ride back on Sunday rather than spend another nite in a motel just to ride back on Monday. But I'm flexible, it's just fodder for discussion at this point.

Not saying that there would be a need to stay the full week, and there are less expensive options to motels.

We may be able to get a better price on rooms this year. I told the owner we would probably be back. They practically let us take the place over and do whatever. They were very appreciative that we chose to stay there.

Mine is the 27th. We could have a birthday bash.

We need to get these dates set soon and get the block of rooms reserved. I can call them and see what kind of a deal they can give us.
