Straymutt and Nutter mutter were the brave souls to take on Shark Week III and they are bringing it to the west coast. Saint George Utah is the destination, date to be announced later as Ron and Mark need to do some recon as they put it. Expect mid July again, but could change.
Letting all of you know that couldn't make it this year and hear the announcement Hutmo made tonight.

Looking forward to next year already

***Update*** Here is a quote from Straymutt further down the thread.
OK, boys and girls, I journeyed on up to St. George this past weekend to scout things out, check out hotels, and meet some people that will be key to the success of Shark Week III. All I can say is WOW!! I can't wait to return with Nutter Mutter to start picking out the rides and plan activities.

And I have good news - the schedule and accommodations are set. I will post hotel info separately (clink on link here) so that there will be no cross post confusion, but I will state here that the goal of July 30 through August 1 has been met. Mark your calendars!!

The folks at Zion Harley are on board and fired up to have us already. They have offered to host a barbeque for us the first evening, the 30th, and will give us a discount on purchases. Pretty cool!

I also met with the present and future directors of the Southern Utah HOG chapter (very cool guys, both) and they are REALLY fired up to help us out too. And a bonus, the present director, Jerry, rides a Road Glide, and I mean RIDES! He told me he's got an '11 model and already has 60K + miles on it! If he hasn't already joined up the forum, I'm sure he will. Mark and I plan to get with him several times over the coming year to explore places that we will want to put on our agenda. I gave him a few ideas on places we want to visit, ride lengths we want to offer, and places to stage a group shot. He's got a ton of ideas.

So let's get ready for Shark Week III!! Being there, meeting with the folks, seeing the scenery has got me really pumped. Shark Week - You'll Wish You Were There!

SW III already has a spot on the calendar for 2013. I had a blast (hot furnace blast from the Iowa sun gods not included) and would do it again tomorrow. Thanks to everyone that pulled together to make SWII happen, especially Rob. Thank you to everyone I met at SWII and I'm wishing everyone safe travels home. Fins up!!!

St. George sounds like a perfect destination, Close to Zion and Bryce Canyon NP and great riding.

Count me in from S. Cal

It is hard to get REAL BEER in Utah they only have watered down 3/2 beer :rolleyes: Maybe they would consider moving it to Mesquite NV it is just 30 miles south of St George so we can still get in all that great riding and drink REAL BEER after the ride.

3.2 beer is all we have in Iowa too, didn't seem to slow anyone down.........I'd guess 95% never knew the difference.

I was planning on doing a trip through Arizona to hit up the old Hwy 666 (hwy 191). Just so happens it would be on the way to St. George, UT.

I will be watching for the dates, hopefully it will all fall into place.

I didn't get a resounding "NO!!" response when I told the wife how many miles it is to Utah, so let the planning commence..........

That is why I got beer in Illinois. It was only a 10 minute trip across the river to get REAL BEER @ SWII. But in St George Utah it is a 1 hour round trip to get REAL BEER in NV. No matter what I am sure SWIII will be fun.

Saint George is only 1650 miles away from me. Should make for a nice trip. Also a BIG THANKS to everyone who make SWII happen. The wife and I had a great time.

1290mi - 1640mi depending on route. Of course the 1640mi route is better but what's 350 miles on the glide......pleasure!
