    I stopped at Stations Inn for lunch on my way to Willville on the 2nd but didn't see y'all...and looked at LD's thread wondering if she may be open that week or not but there'd been no new posts since mid April. :dunno

    I rode back past there on the 6th but didn't stop.

    BTW..I did detour off the BRP on the 2nd and run the 18 through Sparta to fuel up and skip the fresh chip seal on the BRP...made sure to note the location of the lil rendezvous we had a few years ago along the way...prolly the first time I'd been brave enough to pass by there since. :D

    we passed a turn to matewan, home of the stolen pig rally

    thought of the @therealmccoy that's close to his name

    but we were on a mission

    [​IMG]



    we gassed up in williamson


    [​IMG]



    a gal recommended starters

    it was a good stop food was good some good locals to cut up with

    the owner brought one of those motorcycle road maps over to the table and started telling all the stuff we didn't get to do :lol3


    he even gave us a poker chip

    I see those all the time in Harley boutiques but that was the first time some one just gave me one without trying to sell it to me

    I loved walking out and seeing our bikes, dirt bikes and 4 wheeler parked together :thumb

    I also likes one bike didn't have a kickstand so he leaned it up on the 4wheeler

    over the river into Kentucky ( I can't say that right every sence seeing last of the mochians)

    now we needed to go south

    by the way have I mentioned it was in the 90s

    I was missing blue ridge parkway and it's seventies

    we hit 23 not a interstate, but still a 4 lane

    [​IMG]


    but not bad for a 4 lane

    saw a couple of elk

    wasn't expecting that


    as I watched the other 2 disappear in the background

    rain started

    they suited up I kept going

    at a turn I waited

    they caught up


    later I was good with rain, but I got cold pulled over

    bill flew by

    jim stopped and waited on

    we were off again

    [​IMG]


    rained hard, let up, repeat
