Call in Sick Mon 12/22 (Tidewater)

I'll be going on a little ride from VA Beach up towards the Gander Mountain Store in Richmond on Mon the 22nd. Be leaving VA Beach around 0800 and heading to Powhatan to have lunch at the Village Garden Cafe, then more back roads up to the Gander Mountain Store.

So far it's just me and one other but if there's some interest I can set up a meeting place and time.

Better hurry! The new Bass Pro shops is eating their lunch, and Greentop gets everyone else.

I noticed the new Bass Pro there the other week when going through! Thought it was rather odd to have both so close.

We have a Bass pro here so the destination isn't really the reason but more the of the "excuse" for the ride.

What's Greentop?

I'd forgotten about Greentop, great place. Used to stop there on my trips to DC for work...

Have to head up there over the holidays...

Greentop is a family run hunting and fishing store on rt-1. It's just down the street from Gander Mountain and it's been there longer than any of the other stores.

If you're going that way, the Islamadoro Fish Company at Bass Pro Shops is geeting rave reviews.

I took the family there a week ago. Very good eats and not very expensive.
