    Anyone intersted in this rally weekend - just talked to my boss and looks like I've got the weekend to ride:

    SHERANDO LAKE Rally (VA) and,

    FINGER LAKE Rally (NY)

    I'm partial to Sherando - hope to meet up with Bro' Pfestus - maybe do some bluegrass and moonshine at night and GS rides during the day....

    Sorry guys, actually had to work for a couple minutes:):

    It was meant as a very rude and off color comment about the capability of a mustache or goatee to also serve as a "flavor saver".

    Sorry, didn't mean to go that far out there, I promise to try to control myself.

    Things to do on the Eastern Shore:

    When in Maryland, eat crabs, crab soup and crab cakes with your beer and/or Frozen Margarita's.

    You might head west one evening to Riva Md, there's 2
    Good Crab houses at the mouth of the South River - Pete and Mike's I think.

    If you get out for several hours, head for forested areas along the coast - especially the Potomac Side of Charlie's and St Mary's County for shady forest rides . Maybe around Purse State Park in Nanjemoy on the Potomac River on Wades Bay - if the tide is out, wade into Potomac and pick up fossilized sharks teeth....

    Good crab house at Brooms Island a little pennisula on the east bank of the Patuxent River. (dead end of Rt 264 off Rt2/4 south to Point Lookout).

    Do a light house tour.

    On the Bay side, (Arundel and Calvert Counties) punch into the little beaches along the coast. Not much shade though - the public beach at Calvert Cliff's State PArk has shade trees perfect for stringing a hammock and doing the beach thing.... Pass time looking for fossilized sharks teeth....

    Gonna try the four winds this weekend & Sherando when it comes up. Sounds like the guys in white suits with large nets will need to be in attendance to handle some of you inmates!:rofl

    One of these Days I will get up to the Finger Lakes Rally, but this year I will be at Sherando Lake! Not sure yet if I will arrive on Friday evening , or early Sat. SWMBO will be away on Fri and I might not be able to get on the road till she gets back, and if its late I'll leave out early Sat. I want to make the great GS ride that the Richmond BMW Riders lead. Also John Boy's Chicken dinner is the main meal this year, that is a treat not to be missed.
    On Sunday, my plan to head into the wild wet and wonderful bowels of West By God Virginia and cross though the crooked road state to the Charleston area and scope out the locale for next years MOA Rally. I have Monday and Tuesday off, so plenty of time to get lost, find some Tittie and Beer joints, and maybe some banjo pluckin perverts to hang out wit.:strum :smoke :thumb :))):
