    Even if you are at 1/2 strength, you will probably be able to ride twice as fast as us. :D

    I'm up in West Jefferson, NC this morning (north of Boone). I'll probably head out on the parkway and take my time getting there. I'm shooting to arrive before sunset. That's all I can say for now, other than I'm looking forward to it.

    Forget the parkway, take 221 and have some fun...or 21 and then pick up 58 and head west. The parkway is boring, why is it everybody wants to ride it? :dunno

    There are a ton of great roads out of West Jefferson and the in the Sparta area. :deal

    Look at a map, what looks fun? It probably is.

    Steve,

    I'm going to leave tomorrow morning from Richmond and meander my way up there to hang out Saturday night, presuming a room is still available. I'm going to call tomorrow morning to try and get a room. If you (or anyone else, for that matter) wants to save some money and share my room, respond to this or PM me or whatever. If you leave your phone number I'll call you.

    Good luck with the back! Few things are more annoying or debilitating than back pain.

    Well, broken ribs really suck, too.

    ps. - offer of a shared room is still open to anyone else - provided I can get two beds, of course! :D
