    Agreed. @RUSTINPEACE saved the day. I added 360 to my route back home and thoroughly enjoyed it again. He probably ought to lead a ride next year.

    Who the hell is going on rides without turn arounds? @YJake how many times do you think we turned around? Oops we’re in Cashiers?? Oh well...

    Big Thanks to Silke and all the other folks that worked so hard for the rest of us to have a great time.

    Great food and drink all around, thanks to @Pork Butt and his helpers who stayed up and watched the smoker.

    Both days, the riding was the perfect amount. The food was very good and the most important thing was how much I laughed at the stops. The whole thing was very good for my mental well-being.

    Western NY or out riding & passing you somewhere
    Yes that was me headed for the HIE in Lewisburg WV where the T storms started right after i pulled in. That tent was exactly 400.0 miles from the tent in Murphy

    You came out of nowhere while i was putting along. Congratulations :D...you were the only motorcycle that has passed me in 2500+ miles of touring smiles - that will halt for a bit tomorrow as the riding stops for the holiday weekend. I really enjoyed that moment as i never get passed and I wondered if you were on here. Very cool!!. Yesterday was different story running up 219 into western NY. Once i stopped wandering the lumbering pig was a rocket ship. What a blast. I ran the road thru Mingo Flats to see the confederate monument that has unfortunately been desecrated with red paint. dragon 2 2019.JPG

    I saw a sign up in Pa on 219 that said
    "Just because you are wandering does not mean you are lost."

    And here is a pic from the dragon on saturday

    I enjoyed my time at the rally with y'all.

    Tom, how are those no-see-um bites doing? You really had a bad reaction to them. Hopefully the "tit" cream is working :lol3

    It is actually working very well. They are still visible, but now they look like typical mosquito bites. I would suspect they will be gone by this weekend. Way unlike past years, where they itch and look horrible for a month.

    Yup, that's the bike I saw. :D

    I ran through two more boomers after that one you stopped for. Ended up in Altoona that night. I think you were there smarter of the two of us on that. :D
