The RTR and "those" rubber tramps
#31
Once Im out on the road, I will never visit this gathering. I dont do crowds of any kind. Gatherings, yes. But not that many.

Hope the gig works out for you. Got a driveway here in Bozeman with your name on it if you need to come into town for supplies or a break.

I don't like to make advance plans.  It causes the word PREMEDITATED get thrown around in the courtroom!
I'm NOT crazy!  My mother had me tested! Cool

Hi John! 

How have you been? Thanks for the link, too. 

I have some friends, including my former boss, that are still at Yellowstone (West Yellowstone is where they are staying) and they tell me that I have to experience Yellowstone in the winter. I had thought about it but having my surgery was no longer something I could put off. Now that I have done that, maybe I will experience a Yellowstone winter one of these days.  Big Grin Before I do that, though, I want to attend the 2019 RTR because I have never been to one.

I actually rolled by the RTR this year. I was on another trip and had business in Q. I didn't stay, the crowd seemed a bit large for my taste. Sounds like I did the right thing.

Zonie you should have come out to the YARC Camp. We were at the LTVA La Posa south. I think some of us will problem return next year and take the same spot. It’s really a great spot.

Bought my first van new in 1972. $1600 !! Been doing this thing off and on ever since. I went to the RTR first in 2012, after it was over I hauled a pickup truck load of trash to the dump. All in all trash is not a big problem at this gathering nowadays. Youtube is what's driving the RTR and it and the people attending are different than days passed. Most of the negativity of the event seems to be spread by folks who find it not to be what they expected. Like anything else change happens. The Q area is huge and it is quite simple to go someplace and camp and visit the event one or two days. A walk through allows you to get the flavor and catch up with or simply make new friends. Social Blade ranks Bob in the top 55,000 of youtubers, 1,500,000 views in 30 days. As much as $74,000 in yearly income. So it's easy to see what the fuss is about.
