Rolling Thunder 2012

Do we have any riders from here that go?

I have been 5 of the last 6 years, and my group is getting ready to get our plans going.

Who wants to join, by informed of our plans, or just try to meet up down there?

I know it sounds early, but hotels go fast!

Thumbs up

I might be able to make it again this year too but if I do, I'll be heading up from FL. Maybe this thread will take off and we can use it as a general coordination type deal whether it's up, down, or across. Maybe a stickie?

ETA: I use the discounts and advance reservations available via the "Run for the Wall" group... http://www.rftw.org/ I just enroll with them for their last night "on the road" and then the final leg into the DC area.

Bring 'em home or send us back!!

A stickie would be great.

BTW, a bud of mine comes up, seems like every other year.

He is from FLA, I think Deltona. Maybe if he comes up, and it's close to you, you could meet up with him.

We are actually thinking of meeting up in VA on Friday, and just getting together and doing some riding of the BRP, and going to DC Sat Afternoon, visiting the Wall, then hit our hotel in DC for an early wake up call.

There are about 15-20 of us, we don't ride with a big group going in. We get to the pentagon about 6am so we are among the first to leave the parking lot, and I might even end up home before the last bikes finsih! lol

I am only about 100 miles from DC.

Hope to see this stickied, and to meet up with some fellow members, and former armed service folks.

I was in the USMC from Jan 87-Jan 91. Came home on terminal leave in early Dec 90, one of the last folks to be allowed to come home prior to Desert Storm, so I didn't end up going. Just the luck of the cards, I guess.

I ride up and stay with a friend in Fredericksburg and we ride around sat hit the alley and sights then ride around then hit the h-d place in dumfries and ride to the pentagon parking lot and then do the ride and ride back to his house the back way and then I ride home... last year I had the HONOR of riding with one of my best friends who's first time, he is a purple heart recipient and he let me escort him to the wall and scratch a few names off a time I will never forget!! any way I met Jay at Jackson Missippee and rode in . Just one of the best rides I've had with Jay

Yep, Deltona is just a short hop west of I-95 - my route up...

...and yep, all of us Vets are in the same bucket regarding whatever our orders say and whatever luck might get involved too. Thanks for your service Marine.

You should join up with us, you know the group! I'm also hitting the Yankee Rally this year!
