Just don't book the date until all the polls have been taken! And/or til 48 hours after the polls have closed and all the late votes been counted!
Yep, after thinking it was going to be in Ukiah last year until the very end, I think I'll go ahead and book rooms in Eureka too, just in case.
Actually, the two biggest problems have been solved.
2005-2008 - Being in Las Vegas - just too far and needed too much time
2009-2010 - Back in NorCal, but no bike
So I figure I've got a good shot now.
As for National....it's irrelevant to me....I don't have that much time off this year, and I'm not too keep on a trip that long on a bike this old.
But since the world is going to end in 2012 anyway, you can bet I'll be sure to make the 2012 National.
