Well, the rain gods got pissed at me for taking the free cabin and I got soaked on the ride home, but beat the really bad weather that's heading in later this afternoon. No real traffic to speak of, so I guess it was fine. I'm still frozen though.
Had a great time despite the weather. Great to see everyone (except Phil38 who apparently is afraid of a little water...). Hope everyone else has a safe trip home. Let's get together at TWO when they get up and running again...

What view

Visibility on the BPR sucked on the back side of Mt. Pisgah, rode through the clouds most of the way to Asheville. We're home and dry now though.

I'm in the dry now. It was a wet ride all the way to Cumberland Gap then it quit raining. XT Traveler split off at London headed north to Cincinnati. I got within 8 miles of home and the tire spit out one of the plugs and went flat. Tried to replug it but I have a feeling the tool that is used to install the plug rope wound up in XT's kit or he may have thrown it away.
I called the wife and she brought the truck and I finished the last 8 miles in a heated truck with the Versys in the back. Still a great trip and good time.

Rode all the way to Asheville in pouring rain. I did not take the BRP route but rode through Canton. I will post up some photos later, but I did not take many. Mostly of a few tents and bikes. Photos of folks watching a TV program about planes crashing just didn't seem interesting.

I think I may contact the Guiness Book of World Records folks. There may have been less "adventure drinking" at this rally than any other.

I'm home and warm and dry again. I need new overpants.

It was good to see some old friends and make some new ones. Thanks to everyone who had a hand in making this happen -- even if some of you organizers wussed out and didn't come.

Visibility at Cherry Cove on the BRP is pretty representative of what I saw up there today on the short stretch that I rode this morning (US276 to NC215).


I have a few (very, very few) pics that I took at the Meltdown. I'll try to post them tomorrow, but I mostly left the camera in the bag in the rain.

All the best,
Chris

My new digs with Heidi. At least it was dry during the monsoon!



I thought my vestibule was big until I saw the two-car garage!




Good looking /2




Our Canadian friends installing his newly Fed-Exed starter.




The river's rising!



Later in the day I'm sure the girl on the Yamaha regretted not having a front fender.



Rode hard and put up wet.



That's all. The camera stayed put up most of the time to keep it dry! I had a great time! It's the people not the weather that makes these things!

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.

That was Bollock's roommate for the weekend. Sara brought him all the way up from Texas.

He just had to sit on my sexy bike when he saw it....

Made it back home, what started out as a cold and damp ended just soaked. Friday I left right after work in a slight rain, stopped for some food and put on the electric jacket liner. So glad to have that thing, made the ride bearable, Eventually punched through the rain but found it again just South of Knoxville. Made one stop to get some liquid refreshment, but my duffel was completely full. Oh what to do, well as luck would have it I was carrying a replacement front tire...well hum my wheels started turning and.......what better place to put my Rolling Rock...



Had a good time hanging around the campsite Saturday talking to fellow ADV'rs, good time in spite of the weather.

Sunday's ride was MORE soaking rain heavier rain, most of the way home, see you guys int he fall.
