    Home!

    Thanks for a good time ya'll. I hydrated well on the trip home so if some of you start getting random calls it MIGHT be because I put your numbers on every bathroom stall I visited.

    You're Welcome.

    Phone been ringing off the hook? I gave you a downright fiery-hot endorsement, mentioning that you like to dance with flames

    Rain started on the parkway this am and I have been riding through sprinkles and torrential downpours all day.

    Kinda fun though and at least it's warm. I'm in Lewis burg? ....Lewis town?....in PA. Got a room.

    I was soaked with sweat from the heat and humidity. Weather calls for heavy rain overnight and a flash flood warning.

    Whee!!!!

    I had a GREAT time,my favorite rally. I was so looking forward to spending time with my wonderful American friends.

    I know lady Draco has been thanked and I will throw mine in the pile. She worked HARD last night and good on her.

    Thank you SO MUCH for your efforts. And,of course,thanks to Sarah for organizing this.

    You do a great job pulling it all together.

    I will have more to say when I get home....still have a lot more riding to do till home.

    Made it home, 180 miles of the BRP, 45 miles of Skyline Drive, they where both pretty much empty. Then it was 5 hours of heat.

    Didn't get killed or caught. :clap

    Thanks to all y'all that do what you do so well. :deal

    See ya next year.

    Loaded up, drove south on the BRP to Fancy Gap and took the long way home from there. Safe and sound.
    Lil' Cletus slept most of the way right next to Lisa..
    Had a GREAT time as usual, thanks to @HappyRiding for putting it together again and @LadyDraco for the great spread...
    Mt Airy was fun and hot, @tom c got himself in a little trouble with Barney, too.....

    How did you like Meadows of Dan? They named the river after you too.

    You're NOT excused. The rest of us called in sick or dead and you could've done the same.

    Well the ride home was very nice.

    It did rain now n then but never that hard. Arrived back home with my shorts on the right way and a fun hangover.

    I really enjoyed the time spent with you folks and appreciate the efforts made by those who made it happen.

    The only thing I screwed up was I forgot to pay Will for my campsite. I'll just mail him a check.

    Don't worry Tom. At first you'll try to fight them off, but as time goes on you'll learn to just relax.

    The worst part is the boobs that they are going to tattoo on your back :lol3
