This just came up over on the Scooter Cannonball Forum.

Registration is officially open! Registration is $100 and includes one pass to Amerivespa. See the form for info on additional Amerivespa registrations and/or additional Cannonball gear.

Download and complete the attached registration form and send payment to Linda Quinn via either paypal (klquinn797@gmail.com) or mail (Linda Quinn, PO Box 861, Wrightwood, CA 92397). Send the completed registration form to Linda. You can mail it, scan it/email it or fax it to 760-249-9922.

Rider numbers will issued in ascending order unless you request a specific number. Specific number request will be handled as follows.
  1. The numbers 55 and 62 have been permanently retired in memory of Janice Ashrat and Stacey Stapleton respectively.
  2. Alumni may elect to keep their number used in previous Cannonballs
  3. First come, first served. First come is defined by the receipt of the registration form and payment. Note that you make your request for a specific number on the entry form not here in the forum.
Hotels will be tight this year, we are going through some pretty small towns. Receipt of the registration paperwork will grant access to the official hotel list.

Download and unzip the attachment below for the entry form.

Finally I hear the word again. Cannonball. Thought I would check if they stop in the Mid-west but unfortunately they will follow the mountains. Crying or Very sad emoticon

I am going to go straight to New Orleans and wait. I wish I could ride with some people. But I shall make my best and see you at your destination.

The Cannonball coming up is going to start in Hyder, AK. Have you ever been there? I have, but only once. More bears than people! Take a good bear proof sleeping bag and a substantial rain proof tarp with you. I don't remember seeing much in the way of overnight accomodations in Hyder.
Since the route goes through Canada, I think you'll also need a passport to get back in the US.

Another thing
I was in Canada a couple of weeks ago and we wanted to rent a car to drive down to New Jersey, the cost of taking a car across, as a one way rental, was well over the top,
So anyone thinking of renting a scooter to do this Cannonball jaunt,,,check the prices... Nerd emoticon

Oz, are you going to Amerivespa? My only regret from the last Cannonball was not having you take a portrait. Put me on the list if you are in New Orleans.

I'm sure there are a few who would take part [I would] maybe around uk coastline or north to south.
I wonder if the like's of travelodge, novatel, Marriott or any other multi hotel/motel chain would give us a discount.

Thanks for the heads up. What is the venue in New Orleans? I check the AV site and it looks like it doesn't say anything about it. This is going to be something bigger than life. The fact that they will be going from Alaska to Louisiana is awe inspiring. OZ I am glad you are in and put me down for a photo shoot. I wanna look as disheveled as possible.

Wish I woulda gotten yours! Was sad about not getting quite a few actually. But oh well. C'est la vie.

Still up in the air about Amerivespa. Want to, not sure how I can make that happen. Cash flow issues, life changes, etc.
