Gamache, sorry you didn't make it, I remember a long rainy ride with you returning from a PA Rally more than a couple of years ago! Back to Brookfield this year though . . . Steve's bedsheet movie nights (3) kept us occupied late evenings (we watched The Fastest Indian twice, with kettle popcorn all nights), Brkfsts and dinners were belly filling, the departure brkfst Sunday morning included Bill's local maple syrup, pancakes, fried eggs, venision sausage (thanks Steve), pork sausage, ham and hashbrown potatos. The super arctic cooler on the back porch started the event filled with 100 lbs of ice cubes which lasted all 4 days. A month old battery failed during Fridays ride, but got replaced and the that GL500 made the trip back to the cabin and next days ride fine. We rode about 300 miles of zoom zoom in verdant Vermont in those two days. We helped HayMaker Bill load his 75 or so haybales Saturday early evening, that was different than your usual MC Rally. Plenty of up hill, down hill, swoops and sweeps most of the time.
