I think the ideal location for another Gathering will be somewhere more centralized for more people, and with other attractions nearby. I am working on some locations....more later ;D

Just a thought - Rugby, ND is the geographical center of North America...  ;) ::) ;D ;D

If your coming that far you might as well come to my house. I'm really not that much farther ;D

Being a New Mexican, will second the Chama idea.   BEAUTIFUL spot.   There is also Ruidoso, NM, 6500'.  By mid to late September the peak of the tourist/racing season is over.   Lots of campgrounds, lots of hotels, too.  Only other thing going on is Aspenfest, which does attract MANY motorcyclists from everywhere, mostly Texans. Casinos, good restaurants for those that DON"T want to cook their own.

Another spot that would be great would be Durango, CO.   Again, peak tourist season passed, warm days, cool, cool nights.  The Durango Silverton train runs late into the fall, as an added attraction.   Durango has preserved their late 1800's downtown (pretty much).   We were married there a LONG time ago--rehearsal dinner in the Strater Hotel, my bachelor party in the Diamond Belle Saloon part of the hotel.   Some unique places.

I am sorry but "The Gathering" still sounds like the title of an M. Night Shyamalan movie. I am going to try my best to make the GA gathering this year, even if Dee picks another weekend that Alabama is playing a good football game. I  would love to visit other regions of the country as well, depends on the location and cost of airfare. I know someone mentioned TN and that would be doable for sure. I think anywhere in LA would be nice, especially during crawfish season. Just my $.02 which is not worth much in today's economy.

  Ken , I have heard 5 crawfish conversations this week!  I even got my pots out the other night and washed them up good.
