STAR 2022 CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO – two wheeled memories that will last a lifetime!

Jamie and I headed out on Saturday morning for the 6 hour drive to Cape Girardeau, MO for this years STAR rally. We really enjoyed last years event and we were excited to see what this years event had to offer. It was an uneventful, but hot drive to our camp site. We love camping at these events and this year would be no different. We stayed at the Trail of Tears – Mississippi campground. We rolled up and were very impressed with the site. The campground was clean, had nice showers and the site we had chosen was full of shade!

This set up has worked out well for us.

The only bad part of the campsite was the Train that would pass by at 3:30 am every morning. We had set up our tent within 20 yards of the train track, so when the train went by it felt like it was running through the tent. There were some nights that the train would come by 2-3 additional times. After a while Jamie and I could only laugh. It will be something we always remember from this years STAR.

Hear for yourself.

We got set up and headed into town to check in for the rally and to see who was already around. There were many folks hanging out in the lobby. It looked like old home week as riders were smiling, laughing and hugging it out! It resembled a family reunion. This is just one reason we love this rally so much. Registration was easy and we got to catch up with some friends that we had met at last years event.

Kelly was all smiles!

What a warm welcoming committee.

We decided to head downtown and eat with a few of the STAR faithful. I am not going to mention names as there were too many folks to remember. We ate at the Minglewood Brewery on the patio, while a slight breeze kept everyone very comfortable. We enjoyed our pizza and conversation.
