    2018 VFRD SUMSUM 4

    Randy et Stoosan are officially out. On the good side, Shade was able to take over our room reservation at the Rocket Motel. I'll still be lurking on this thread -- but probably not very active. Be safe, y'all …. and have way too much fun. Just remember the nightly toast: "Here's to no tickets, no crashes, no fatalities. Forever and ever, amen." Cheers. - RandyB

    Oh, wait a minute. I think I may have just got it. Oy. <grin>

    Perhaps I wasn't clear. We cannot attend SumSum4 … and already have reservations at the Rocket Motel. We will be cancelling our room on Wednesday afternoon and asking them to hold the room in Shade's name (another VFRD SumSum4 attendee). Then Shade will call the Rocket, say howdy, they'll finalize the reservation in his name. And Bob's your uncle.

    Shade has expressed an interest in sliding into our room reservation at the Rocket Motel. So will follow up the with the motel peeps on Wednesday afternoon and then update later. Thanks, Shade! - ET

    Well … we have been waiting and hoping …. but NONE of our Powerball tickets have proven to be winners. So, with the impending big bill ($8-11K USD) for our sewer main repair looming on the immediate horizon … E-Ticket and The Flying Ant are going to have to withdraw from SumSum4. Which just sucks. :^( We were so looking forward to seeing everyone again. We have a room reserved at the host Rocket Motel from July 10-13. We are going to be contacting the Rocket Motel on Tuesday/Wednesday to cancel our reservation and get our first night deposit back. Before doing so, I wanted to check to see if there are any VFRD peeps that wish to slide into our reservation room before the Rocket Motel just frees it up for general use. Please reply back as soon as you can -- as we will be pulling the plug on Wednesday, late afternoon. Cheers! -- RandyB

    Well …. crap. E-Ticket and The Flying Ant are getting kind of tired of the "it's your turn in the barrel." 😥 We had to bow out of the last VFR PNW rally due to getting our 1930's house's cinderblock foundation reinforced. We are now bullet-proof and hopefully earthquake-'resistant.' :^) But it took MAJOR bucks to pull off. Fast forward to 2018 and we were totally jazzed about SumSum4 in Custer! (We went north after SumSum3 was over and did Custer/Rushmore/NeedlesHighway/Devil'sTower. Had a total ball.) We have a room reserved at the Rocket Motel and were so looking forward to seeing everyone again. But. BUT. Gawd … life always seems to have a 'but' here and there. :^( After a major blockage, we have been informed that our main sewer line exiting the house is 80% blocked by tree roots coming into the pipe joints. Arrghhhh!!! Worse yet? Our main sewer line runs under a concrete wall and driveway/sidewalk. Initial quote from one plumbing firm was $11,000 freeekin' US dollars to do a pipe burst/replacement. 😳 …. 😣…. 😭 We're hoping to get more bids so we can get the price down … but it's still going to hurt something awful. So we have the time set aside for SumSum4 … but it looks like the funds for it are about to go bye-bye. :^( At this point, we are going to be a 'no-show.' crapcrapcrapcrap. ☹️ That being said -- we are not 'officially' throwing in the towel until later in June. Because, hey …. miracles happen all the time, right? :^) At that point, we'll pull the plug … talk to y'all … and release our reserved room at the Rocket Motel in case someone wants to grab it. -- Randy et Stoosan

    BTW ... The Rocket Motel is down to just a couple of rooms. If someone is sitting on the fence about the wisdom of joining us ... better go poke 'em.

    Randy (E-Ticket) and Susan (Flying Ant) are now booked at The Rocket Motel as well. We'll be checking in on Monday, 7/9 .... through Thursday ... and rolling out on Friday, 7/13. All I have to do now is go rob a bank for some travelin' funds and get the momo's running again. :^) Cheers!
  10. Well .... poop. I've been dragging my feet on making the "we can't make it this time" post for e-v-e-r. But there's no ducking it. waahhh. Which is just a major frickin' bummer. :^( E-Ticket and Flying Ant won't be attending this time due just "too much other stuff." Maybe next time, eh. Be safe and have too much fun everyone. -- E-Ticket
  11. Well, head has been "elsewhere" this past year to say the least. But there is light on the horizon and Life Is Good. And to try and make up for missing SumSumII ...III .... IV ....(?) this summer and to come North for all the peeps who come South .... E-Ticket and the Flying Ant are coming to ride with y'all. Will talk w/ my wingman this weekend and commit on a room later this weekend. Cheers! - ET

    Thanks, Tammy! Susan, aka "The Flying Ant," is uber-stoked with this one.

    Oh, that's easy. The Bend > Sisters > McKenzie Highway loop. First, because I heard it was awesome. Secondly, because I DIDN'T GET TO DO IT DUE TO A NAIL IN MY REAR TIRE!!!!. My wife Susan, aka "The Flying Ant" said it was awesome and she wants to go do it again. Arghhh. But hey ... poopie happens. :^) Actually, all three ride days/routes were pretty awesome in their own way. They were all a bit different and a real hoot. Cheers! E-Ticket

    As discussed on the rally this last week ... we *really* need to do Utah the next time.
