Traffic wasn't too bad up coming up, however the GSA can split lanes if she wants to.


I got a chance to watch the pros in LA.

Thanks for the info. How far away are the riding locations, and what sort of dues? Do they have singletrack?

DLJocky - Thanks for the correct link.

Dues were reasonable, I think one riding area was in Surry, the other was around Gloucester.

Right up the road 20 min south of Richmond!
I had a Kilimanjaro Black/Gray jacket stolen off my bike a few years ago. Always wondered if it would turn up.

Special thanks going out to the City of Hampton PD for not doing a GOD DAMN thing when I reported over $1,000 of theft/credit card fraud after that incident.

Hey... credit card company says they made a $700+ charge at Lowe's in Hampton at this time... MAYBE check the fuggin' security cameras to catch the sumbitch? Oh... and look... they used that card AGAIN at WalMart in Hampton at this time. BOTH establishments have PLENTY of security cameras. MAYBE do a little fuggin' investigating? MAYBE catch the person who's preying on vehicles parked in the Sentara parking lot over, and over, and OVER again?

Nope... we'll just never return Mike's phone calls and act like we truly don't give a shit.

Yes... I'm still bitter.

same thing happened to my sister last december. stolen card, spent all of her money for christmas on dvd players and tvs at walmart, amazing nothing was caught on security cameras. we all know who the crack head on the other side of the family is though. no investigation of any kind. practically had to beg the police to file a report when my identity was stolen so i could file it with the miami pd. had 8 cell phones in my name from 1 sprint store in miami, after years of getting all that straight, an apartment in my name in boston showed up. i almost went to do an eviction with the 12 gage. so had to do it all over again. with stolen identity being a multi billion dollar crime every year one would think thered be more that can be done. i feel your frustration.

Just an awesome day, blue sky and and nice breeze. My Dad drove down from Pittsburgh so all 3 of us got out on Skidmore in the kayaks. Had a Bald Eagle hanging around most of the day. The boy did a great job for only being 8. Perfect even though we didn't catch anything.

We were there from around 8:30 to 12:30, heard bikes going through quite often.

Had lunch at Fox's in Brandywine then up to the range. Brought a bunch of steel plate targets including some zombies and had a field day with .22 pistols and rifles.

Cook out and a campfire and a case of Yuengling. Oldman and young man turned in early and I got to have some quiet time with a few cold ones and some good tunes.

P.S. I graduated from EVMS and spent A LOT of time in and around Sentara/KD and the Jones Institute. I hope you didn't leave that jacket on your bike, you'd be ASKING for someone to take it!
Yeah... sorry. Reading back, it kind of sounded like I was acusing you of something. I apologize. The Kili jacket just brought up old memories.

As far as leaving gear on the bike... well... I don't believe that constitues a "free take" by any means. I know many people who do this. Did I learn a lesson? Certainly. And it'll never happen again. However, unless the shit had THEIR name on it, I don't believe I was asking them to take it.

After it happened, I found out that the area, and the vehicles, were very prone to theft. It was pretty evident that people were watching the parking lot, would wait for people to leave their vehicles, grab what they could, and left. They took my jacket, pants, backpack (with boots, wallet, keys, etc. inside), but never bothered with my brand new Arai XD.

There was a small part of me that wanted to "camp out" near the building. Park the bike again with something on it, leave it, then hide out somewhere with my telephoto lens, and a crowbar.

"I'm sorry officer... I slipped and fell, and my crowbar must have slipped out of my hands... 27 times."

Pardon me for being crass, but excusing theft by leaving belongings unattended is right up there with excusing rape because someone is dressing sexy.

Yep, the one in Brandywine is very good. The one in Franklin, not so much.
