    You guys... Hang out in Martinsburg for the night and then toss us a bone over in Bowden. :lol3

    That may constitute a part of the EP to some, but it's still 143 miles out for me.:eek1 You forget that these old dirt bikes lack the kind of saddle you want to be planted in for several hours.:rofl

    That's why we stand on the pegs so much. Now, if you wanna trade the Strom...:evil

    Lovely day to get my first panhandle tag a rama. Nice location too!

    [​IMG]

    After meeting the Moderator of this here fine tag for a bit o lunch ( Wild Wings :evil ... the Duck didn't much care for it)....

    [​IMG]

    ...we headed to the border. This is one of my favorite north south roads...especially as it travels from Front Royal to Elkton VA...

    this is the tag shot:

    [​IMG]

    and this is where the duck is...just look right from the sign when you get there and you'll see this:

    Can't say for sure. Not very deep, but there could be some strong currents in places. Also, there's a few islands just downstream from there.

    Just noticed... 1hr and 45min!!!:eek1 Guess the new Rt. 9 didn't help out much for Scrabble. To 480 maybe.

    May get in a ride tonight after work. The tag should be about 45 min. -for
    me from home. Hopefully Vatrader01 is still preoccupied.:rofl

    Good grab Elroy. I happen to know the duck was in grave danger from an out of state kidnapper....
