    Looks like this is the route I am going to take. Seems like there are plenty of bailout points to bigger roads if the weather sucks or I start running late and needing a cold beer.

    Still working out the details.

    Looks like I'll be headed down from DC early Friday morning. Chris Kleponis may go as well. Anyone else headed down from DC area around that time?

    We're rolling from Chris Kleponis's place in DC Friday at 6:00am sharp. PM him for directions to his place if you want to join.

    It looks like a BIG day of RAIN. So we might superslab it most of the way down 81 and 77. However, if we can, we may do some bits of the following:

    66 => 522 => 340 => 64 => 250 => 42/615 => 77 => 81 and Johnson City then 70 to HS.

    Great meeting all of you guys. Had a great time both on the way down and on the way back not to mention down there. Finally got tired about 4pm yesterday and was only in Lexington, so I jumped on 64 and blitzed back up 81 to home. Ran into my brother-in-law at a gas station in Basye. Home by 7:00 or so.
