Rendezvous at Red Lodge June 25th-28th, 2020

RED LODGE 2020 June 25th - 28th, 2020

I received the following from John Gilligan, Manager of the Chateau Rouge http://chateaurouge.com/ in Red Lodge MT,

I told him some would likely leave Sunday and some on Monday.

Remember to inquire about the specific bed arrangements in the condo you reserve, some have Kings and some have queens, some have twins in the second bedroom, most have Sofa Beds downstairs in the Living rooms.

Not only do we recall your group, we will never forget the Yamaha FJR group, and will be more than happy to welcome you again in 2020.
We have set aside the entire Chateau Rouge beginning Thurs June 25th; staying 3 nights or four nights? Do you plan to leave Sunday June 28th or Monday the 29th?
I will present the Steak dinner idea to the Lions Club at our next meeting. They were very happy with the 1st event, so I donít imagine anything but a yes.
The rate in the 2 floor two bedroom condos is $159.00 + $16.90 tax per night; while the single floor Studios are $129.00 + $13.90 tax per night. There will probably be an increase, but we will hold these rates for your group.
I assume youíll have individuals call our reservations line (800 926 1601) to make their individual arrangements.
Great to hear from you, John. Please holler if you need additional info.

Thanks

John Gilligan

Pardon me for not being born knowing where this is located. Believe it is at:1505 Broadway Ave S, Red Lodge, MT 59068

Only 1800 miles from home! I’ll probably stay home as I should be in the midst of moving next summer.

My bucket list is to ride Beartooth and Chief Joseph Hwy, this would be a good time to do it and celebrate my 71st birthday too :-)

I need to do this before I can't, my wife and I started out for there 10 years ago, first day she dropped her bike and broke her left ankle and I haven't tried since.

I have this on my want list now.

Pop and I rode those roads in September of this year. Pop turned 74 just a few weeks prior to that trip.

I will say that riding the Beartooth and looking at the scenery was more difficult than any other road I can recall. The views are so vast and so distant that I could not enjoy the curves of the road and look at the views too. We slowed our ride and enjoyed the scenery.

Pop's bike somewhere on the Beartooth:

Never run out of ideas, traction, and real estate at the same time.

I hear ya Redfish. Last time we were there she kept saying how beautiful it is, and id say "I wouldn't know im to busy trying to keep us alive. I made alotta stops tho , to make up for it. The one stop that stands out the most was on Chief Joseph, a nice overlook with foot hills as far as you could see, with fast cloud shadows moving over them.

For the past 8 years, since we moved to Montana, Annie and I have ridden the Beartooth and Chief Joseph Byway a dozen or so times. IMHO the Beartooth is more fun if ridden to enjoy the scenery.

I'm fortunate to have spent 5 years as a full time employee of the National Park Service working in Yellowstone in the 70s. I worked on the park two-way radio system and got to know the Beartooth well. I'll never forget my first MC ride over the Beartooth about two days after the road opened on my then new R75/7. I do love that part of the world and wish I'd never left.

LOL Yeah - the downside of having a bike like the FJR that is so much fun in the twisty bits. I've been caught out a couple of times thinking, "Oh! Look at the scenery over there!" and then looking back to the road and having a Pucker Factor 4 moment in the curve.

Oh man! I'll be in Hill City, South Dakota, until the 20th and have been considering heading west and north into Canada after that. Maybe I could work this in.
