This week my husband and I are doing a Harley trip. We are going to Victoria, British Columbia to attend a HOG Rally. HOG stands for Harley Owner’s Group. This is similar in some ways to a genealogy conference as it’s a bunch of like-minded people who love to talk about their passion. The difference is that their passions are Harley’s.. They have vendor booth but instead of selling Flip Pals they are selling leathers and bike bling. They have a banquet and it’s very similar to a genealogy banquet but the attire might be a bit different. I’ve never seen anyone at a genealogy conference wearing a leather vest and bike chaps.
I’m a genealogist but I do like a good road trip and it’s always fun to hang out with like-minded people and learn new things.
There is one thing that will probably be different from most other road trips that we’ve gone on lately. As my husband is from Ontario, I often take the opportunity to take a side trip and visit a location where my ancestors lived. My husband; Kevin has come to realize that no road trip is complete until you go to the graveyard. I don’t imagine we will be going to any this time as I only have a few ancestors that came from B.C. and <sigh> none of them are from Victoria.
