    In 2015 my wife and I headed out to Wildwood New Joisey for the The Race Of Gentle Men. Just a little 900 mile ride (each way) to watch a bunch of old Hot Rods and Hot Motorcycles race on the Atlantic Ocean sand. The weather for cast was a bit "iffy" by the time we left the Wed. before the event. By Thurs. we were well into Pennsylvania, when a buddy calls "It's official, the TROG is cancelled". The "iffy" weather turned out to be a full blown hurricane!!!
    Gonna try again. Next Wed. myself and buddy Jim Schuett and our wives will head East again. Jims 32 5 window and my Avatar 48 p/u are ready to go. Our room reservations are confirmed. The weather forecast (at least at this point) is perfect. How can we go wrong?
    To be continued. Bill Rinaldi

    Envious. I just started a new job, I was supposed to go to NJ for 8-10 weeks and 1 week in Chicago for training, but they switched it up on me and it;s Chicago first.

    Get there safely Bill!

    I’ll post pics as soon as I get there for ya Don. Seems Instagram is full of pics already but I’m not into it, just read it on a similar thread, somebody was wondering why no pics on the HAMB. Apparently lots of pics on there.

    ...Understood.
    - Just ask your wife to take a lot of pictures on the wedding. For sure they all understand that tRoG is only once an year.
