Hang in there, we are on it like a bum on a baloney sandwich....

Thanks Bob,

I'm thinking of camping out this trip.  I hate leaving my trailer unattended, then again, I like long showers too.

Yeah, kinda simplifies matters, don't it ?
Makes it easy to procrastinate on finishing the website construction . LOL
Everybody involved in this has another parallel life,their first , and time spent on this is discretionary. Everything anyone needs to know will be made available in due time, and at this time I believe 90% of what you need to know is already known, unless you are a major newbie to LSR.
Jon SSS W offered this option (forum) to me, worked out nicely, I think.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to clarify this connection

LTA/09  Attendees,
I thought I'd just inform  everybody on these forums  that there are , according to the Caribou Inn people, 11 rooms currently left at our $88 discount rate, and a few Kings and suites for our weekend.  Those 88s are for any day including the weekend, and "are good for up to four people in a room" . I'd suggest even if you're not sure which days you are attending to reserve a room or two, you can always cancel. We are still working on improving our accommodations , even though this is a really good deal, and will very likely be the site of our poolside Salt Talks style "LSRendezvous" at least Saturday night.
We'd also recommend reserving Sun and Mon night, it might be a long weekend.
There are,according to the Caribou Inn people, about twenty rooms reserved by LTA attendees already in early March.
We also currently already have 14 pre registered racers , even though we have not started formally announced we are accepting  them.
Bob, Woodstock ?,  W

I'll make another call up there this week. Considering  the website advertises 73 rooms and we of the LTA only reserved  around <30 at this time, that leaves 43 for ? . There is no local event besides us that weekend, and the only other things going on are reunions and Funerals. I will respectively skip the huge opportunity for levity at this point. Although I will educate those of the majority that live in non frozen winter ground areas. When someone passes in the dead of winter up there, they basically wait until the ground thaws for interment. So there is a spring funeral season and corresponding upsurge in room reservations .
I'm on it, the rooms ,that is.

I called the Caribou Inn regarding the "rooms left" deal . It was a misunderstanding, they have plenty rooms left. Some with King size beds, some suites with more beds, all at a discount. I'd still recommend reserving early to get a choice of smoking/Non, or preferences to floors (it's two floors), proximity to the lots or the pool or the bar, or just that piece of mind knowing you have a nice clean room after a long day of LSR .
As time goes by, we feel more and more comfortable up there, something  experienced   only in a smaller town than usual in our sport.

I just heard about this event. THANKS for putting it together. I have never gone Land Speed Racing, but have wanted to go to Bonneville to join the 130MPH Club (or make an attempt anyway) on my motorcycle for a few years now. Circumstances and finances have prevented it. Now, only a short 10 or 11 hour drive away, I hope to be able to make it to the inaugural event. Not to mention my fiancee has lived on Loring (her dad was stationed there) she is anxious to bring me there.  I'm new to the sport so go easy on me, but I anticipate building something to compete for records some time in the future. :cheers:

You're on for the beer!!!! I will hopefully be riding my 92 Virago the 11 hour ride from the Upper Valley, VT, to Loring.  I will be there, Spectator or Participant. 

My fiancee was stationed there 78-82 and owns LoringAirForceBase.com  (http://www.loringairforcebase.com/ ) and will be posting links to this event on her site, probably tomorrow.  It has already been posted to the Loring Yahoo Group and to the Loring Ramp Rats site (42nd Security Police Squadron - includes Law Enforcement, K-9, Security Police, etc. - http://www.loringramprats.com . ) 

By the way, she says that The Rendezvous, the little pizza joint (with bar) outside the East Gate road is great.  It's a must-go whenever she's up there.

I'm looking forward to the 24 +/- hour ride on the bike!  Speed safe!

 :cheers:
