Completed the first leg of my triple-redundant journey home about 30 minutes ago. (That means I'm home.) Pushed hard, rode MUCH more e-way than I like and paid for the high speeds with MPG -- I consistently hit reserve at the 125 mile mark. Not a fun day at all.

Still in all, it was well worth it to spend time with you folks again. Wish we could make it longer!

On edit: Pete & JoAnn made it home safely by 2 PM.

Yes, we got in around 2pm. Had to unpack, mow grass, get groceries, update Fantasy Football site, and eat.

Un-eventful ride up... we did ride into about 15 seconds of rain just north of Marietta Ohio.

All-in-all was a grand time with great people. Hope next year to be back for the fun and festivities.

I got in about 4:00 after a nice ride on the BRP. I want to add my thanks to Art for putting this weekend together. And of course thanks to Rick for giving us a chance to practice our off-road riding. I will see you all next year and hopefully earlier.

Well I didn't leave Hillsville until 11:30am pulled into Chadds Ford Pa. (about 20 miles from my house) around 7:30 and had a leisurely dinner. Four Hundred and fifty miles in 8 hours flat, a personal best for me. Glad all the Virginia troopers were on I77 cause I wicked it up as traffic would allow. I got to use the heated gear, got pretty cold riding after sundown. I got to use the headlights more than I wanted also. What I get for standing around jawing all morning. I'm blaming Rick and Jo.

I had a great time, great rides, great booze and great people, what else could you ask for.

Going to go lay down in bed and watch the Eagles play. Later babies.
