Shark Week VIII Dates

SW VIII dates have now been set. Official dates are Tuesday, July 31 through Thursday, August 2. That means arrive on Monday, depart on Friday for most. We're making Monday, July 30 an unofficial day of activity too for those who prefer to arrive on Sunday (or earlier), as this option has been gaining popularity in recent years. There won't be any official rides or activities for Sunday or Monday, but there will be the usual camaraderie and good fun....and maybe a beer or two.
Accommodations are still being lined up, and we can tell you that things are looking very good for our desired option of Durango. More on this as we finalize negotiations, locations and options.

What if the Hokey-Pokey really is what it's all about?

Didn't spend a lot of time in either town, but from what I saw Durango sounds much better, but I'll be happy either way! Thanks for all the work y'all are putting into his.

I have plans for it - Had a long talk with the tech that built my '15 and he put me on the path to what the M8 is really all about, what to do and how to get the most of what I NEED out of it - Dude is scary smart and I now have a plan.......that I need to save for - No need to get "Beast" crazy again but that M8 has some very easy and enjoyable #s on tap just waiting to come to life - Winter project finalized
