Sorry to hear about Jeff's accident and I hope that he will be OK.
What does a wayward traveler like me do? I won't know if I can attend the
rally until a few days before.
I didn't notice a drive up motel in Silverton and can't make advanced
What should I expect if I just show up at the last minute? (That's what I
did in 05.)
I'm desperate to attend, if I can.
