    Been home for about a day. I had fun and look forward to doing these in the future. Next time I will stay for a lot longer. I did around 2000 miles between Monday and Monday

    Made it to NJ. too busy riding to take many pics. Had a great time. as for the little bike riding, HM was great. good mud, bikes still hook up... both days i was in a group of 6 or 7 that could ride. stop every 5 miles and everyone caught up within 30 seconds :clap Wish i had my big bike there for a day because i really wanted to check out the tunnel and some other sights. Thanks to don and kathy for the hard work. Hope we didnt leave too much of a mess. I left a factory samsung charger in room 24 Don. It will work on your phone. :D

    oh i tell ya. it was horrible down there at hatfield-mccoy central (sarcasm). had a great time. brazen13 was very pleased with the way her long weekend turned out. i had no complaints. the gravel parking lot? non-issue. the rain? non-issue. i dunno what all the naysaying was about previously in the thread. everyone had a great time, not sure i heard a single complaint. i'm betting there'll be no lawsuits either for anything.

    after everyone left on sunday there was just brazen13 and i along with casey and his lovely wife. we had a swell time eatin' pizza and drinkin' shine. got a fire goin' from the remenants of the prevoius nights blaze. a grand time was had indeed.

    i even brought home some souveniers. :evil

    Great pics and a great time! Group willingness to help was fantastic and really made the event memorable for me! Especillly gratefull to Kyle B for riding sweep, helping me pick up the bike (repeatedly!) and talking me though my first real exposure to mud. Much appreciated!
