Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

I'd be in for Lake of the Ozarks, beautiful country there!

I could go with Lake of the Ozarks as well! Some of the Ozarks are a lot steeper than the Rockies though. The climbs just aren't as long.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

Looks like a nice place and it's only 2000 miles from me. I will try to make it. Who knows, it might actually happen. Don't do it too close to burning man, I want to go next year.

I think you would probably use it as an excuse to fly in and buy another bus just because it was a good deal.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

I have a question for anyone familiar with Lake of the Ozarks. I was there years ago and there was a place on the halfway point of the lake called "Big Dicks Halfway Inn" Is it still called that?

Ozarks are a good central location. I would love to go there.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

now a good date is in order

I think week or 2 after burning man (laborday)
That way all the folks coming from BM can slip in on the way home.

I like that idea.

So I tried to mapquest the mileage from my house to "the Ozarks" but that's not really a town... is Branson close to where we're thinking?

I can't commit to anything yet, but I'd very much like to go.
