It’s getting kinda hectic.

Well Monday has come and gone and I am still working on the Maps. I will have them up as soon as I can. I got a call from American Andy this morning letting me know that I can pick up our T-shirts and Posters! YEA! I also found out this morning that the chase truck needs more work ($$$$$.$$) than we thought. I think that is it. Oh yea both my shovels are down and I need to finish the sweater I have been knitting for Spike’s birthday. Back to work.

Hotels

Here are some Hotels for the guys coming from out of town. For the Pre Run Party. There is a map below with all the hotels near Indian Larry’s. Before the run starts the closest Hotels to Cool Beans is in Paramus. A bunch of guys stayed at the La Quninta last year. Click here for a map with all the local hotels. After the run I have some reconditions. There are some sketchy places near the party, so try one of these. They are within a mile or so of the party.

Nice and cheap.

The Pre Run Party UPDATE.

We have a new spot for the pre run party. Originally we were having the party in Hoboken. Circumstances beyond our control forced us to find a new venue. Just as I was starting to freak out I got a call from Bobby Seeger from Indian Larry Motorcycles. After hearing of my predicament he graciously offered up his shop for the new location. So the party is on Thursday Aug. 26 from 6pm till 12am. there will be plenty of bike parking and some refreshments courtesy of Bobby and Indian Larry Motorcycles. I am finding out about hotels and will post them ASAP.
