    Hello Fellow Riders. I joined the chapter a couple of weeks ago after attending a Saturday morning breakfast ride to Palmyra, WI. I’ve been a MOA member since about 2000. Now riding a 2018 RT and soon a 2019 F850GSA.
    I will be attending the Airplanes and Breakfast ride on the 19th and have decided to spend Sunday night in Galena to ride one of the driftless route that Sunday. It would one of the following: Land of Lincoln route, the Big M route or Sabula-Anamosa route.
    If anyone else is staying longer and is interested in joining me please don’t hesitate. I will be staying at a Galena B&B.
    Looking forward to meeting all of you. Thanks.

    1. Hi Nestor, there are a few people who will be heading to Galen. Join our Thursday Zoom 9/17 meeting and you can get a sense of who is going to Galena and who might stay longer. Weather looks like it’s going to be great.

      Hey Nestor,
      I am also considering extending my stay with a departure on Monday. Amber at the Palace Campground has been great to work with, and said we can reserve Sunday night in advance, and confirm when we arrive on Saturday.

    Hi all~. I plan on arriving Galena on Friday, since it takes me ‘hours’ to set up my tent😝, I decided it was worth a two night stay! Another fellow cycle rider from WI I think is heading down Fri also….any other takers?
    I’ll try to join in zoom Thur, have another meeting same time.
    Hope to see you soon~
