I hear you Mike,

Destination will be a very big thing to settle on if we can have a get together. The west and its legendary rivers and scenery are going to make the trip for some I'm sure. However, having been around a bit I can say with hindsight as my guide that North Central Pennsylvania obliged me with the best trout fishing of anywhere I have ever fished. That is a personal thing and it was groomed over many years of experience.

What I can say about the Western United States (Rocky Mountain States) is that few things have ever had a bigger visual impact on me in my life as when I rode my GS 750 up through the mountains in Montana. For any who have not been to the west it would be a trip to remember.

For me this would mean sacrifice no matter where we would go. The summer here happens, that is what it is, a happening. The trout and salmon flood back into the rivers and creeks and the sky does not darken. It's a happening and my visit to anywhere will mean leaving something I live through the darkness of winter waiting for.

By the time the poll ends in February we'll know who may come and we will work from there.
