    Shit, it would have been a hoot to say "Hey" to Mike out there in the cornfields. You've got to learn to be more sociable. :rofl

    I didn't recognize him or the bike....he had a helmet on and wasn't sucking on that giant vaporizer. :lol3

    Here's what he posted to my wall etc.....I took the names off for ADV.

    :D I didn't recognize him either, the only times I see him is at Old's Cool rallies and he's always on an old timer for those.

    He didn't salute back, either. I felt uncomfortable about doing it afterward; some people aren't into that stuff. Maybe I'll take a page from Klay's playbook and quit doing it.

    I had all day to get home from Marlinton. I spotted this road on 39 right on the Virginia/West Virginia border. Don't follow it south if you expect to get anywhere, regardless of what the Garmin might tell you (you'd think I'd learn).

    Google maps calls it Public Road 55. Someday I'm going to go up there and try the north part. Looks like it follows the border all the way up to 84.

    All this is making me long to be back in the cornfields of the midwest...not.

    Camera battery went dead, so that's about the extent of the pictures. I curse the proprietary battery. :boid

    I've posted quite a few pics of the rest of the ride home previously, anyway.

    Went to the Old's Cool Rally last weekend. It started raining before I got out of the city limits and didn't stop until I got to Old Fort on I-40. With it being 350 miles to Tellico Plains, I pretty much have to use the interstate to get to that part of the country, unless I want to spend 2 days doing it.
