      Holy smokes. I thought the last one was one of those "never again" affairs. Lol

        I was at the 50th also. It was my first Rover rally. I’ve learned a few things since then.

          I would like to go but at over 500 miles one way I'm not sure it is doable.

            There needs to be more than 1 event around the Country.

              It was my first and last aside from the Guy Fawkes rallys. I guess I learned that I don't like big Rover rallys...

                You'll have a newly sorted transmission and rebuilt engine by then though. If you split it up and took a week and did some of the parks or historical sites along the way it could be a good time.

                  I'm about 600 miles away. Probably would be a hard sell to my better half to attend. If mine is in one piece (lots of work still to go) and I could attend I would probably trailer it to the event.

                  It is a once in lifetime occasion.

                    I was at the 50th as well. Drove up in “Green Hell,” my ‘72 SIII 88”. It was July so I left the door tops at home and packed for warm weather. That was a big mistake and I froze my arse off in the mountains through PA and NY. Arrived at a decent enough hour to buy a sweatshirt from the OVLR gang. That was a fun event and there was a desire to do more, but there were some financial issues that prevented it. As well as some issues with local property owners. Big highlights from that event include learning some new profanity one night when Nancy Denis stubbed her toe on a spare diff laying in the grass. And when Robert Davis’ friend (retired-Navy Seal, anger-management school candidate) responded to our potato canon volleys passing over his tent by threatening us and calling us “dick-nibblers.’” Jon Humphries (RIP) couldn’t resist the bait and mumbled an appropriate response. The guy launched a beach chair into our campfire but it missed the fire pit and bounced off Mike (also RIP) Loiodice’s GF. She was a NYS corrections officer and we almost had to physically hold her back from engaging with Mr. Navy Seal. Lots of other fun recollections. This will be a good event and probably less shenanigans since we’re all a quarter century older.

                      Pretty much. As the organizer of the last one, it 'cured' me of ever wanting to do it again....

                        I'm going to drive up from Florida with my NADA (towing). finally getting to the point in life where I can take off to do some of those NE events I've always just read about.

                          Hey pat yourself on the back for a job well done! The 50th was a wonderful event and folks had so much fun they want to see it happen again!

                            The 50th was a lot of fun for sure. My wife and I drove out in my 88", visited some friends just north of Syracuse after it before heading home.
                            I met a lot of other owners I only knew from the early internet days on some of the forums.
                            I also don't enjoy some of the larger events any longer. I prefer smaller groups, friends and other long time rover acquaintances.
                            The majority of the vehicles are newer now, the owners are different. Not bad, just different.
                            Back then my Hella 4000 pencil beams mounted on my roof rack seemed to go on for miles in the dark of upstate...

                              Just got my ticket. Group of us driving out from Minnesota in series. I’ll be in my 1964 109. Adding a series 1 to the group in Wisconsin so no excuses from anyone east of the Mississippi that it’s to far!

                              Can’t let the new trucks have all fun. Like a comet, the event only comes around once every 25 years. Make it happen!
