The truck came back. It was an old guy with coke bottle glasses. He said, "I didn't see you."He was really shook up. I didn't swear or anything at him! I was happy to still be standing! I just shook his hand and said to be more observant because there's a lot of us out here.
I should have given him Rick's sticker.......



Thanks for the good time everyone!

Thank you Silke, Hunter, and crew for all the hard work that went into making this a great event. It was great to be able to put faces with names.

Next time don't be so stubborn. Stop and ask, "How do I get to Hampton, Tenn. from here"? It is not unmanley to ask for directions.

I had a great time. Really enjoyed seeing 20 riders enjoying the trails that I'm usually luck to just have 1 or 2 buddies to ride with. Clayton thanks for posting all the great pics. We'll get over to Doe Mtn next year, it'll be a lot easier to ride after a night of drinking & etc...

It was great meeting everyone. Wish I could remember everybody's' names, but it was an effort just remembering mine at times!! Looking forward to Nottarally.
Glenn,

Thanks again for showing us your fav mountain trails and single tracks! Great ride. Sorry, I bugged out Sat am as I thought it was just going to rain all day. Say "Hi" to your bud Gary for me.

Thanks to all the organizers.

Jon

Mark - is that you?! I wondered since I knew you had a blue Strom.

Glad that didn't interfere with your weekend or getting home safely!

You must be the guy that shared our cabin. I thought it odd that I didn't get to meet you.

Awesome, awesome weekend! The venue was perfect, the food was amazing, and the weather was.... well, typical.

The Eastern RDV was the first ADV rally I ever attended (several years ago, of course) and I'm happy to see that it is still going on, bigger and better than ever! Hats off to Silke and Hunter and the rest of the gang for keeping it going. Rick would have loved it!

Great seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

That was well planned by him. He's a smart man.

Can someone share the jambalaya recipe? That stuff was awesome.

Of course, for my household of two the recipe would need to be reduced greatly....
