    It was a great weekend. We were up and gone a few minutes after 7 heading north,trying to beat the heat. We are making a beeline for cool, green VT.

    We made it to Chambersburg and we are done! 95 degrees on I-81 when we hit a traffic jam. Finally cleared the traffic jam and the temp climbed to 98. Hell's Bell's, it's hot out there. Got a room at the Hampton, with a pool, and a brewery nearby. Beats the hell out of working.

    I dehydrated a bit on the way home .... three days of riding 2 days of drinking throw in the heat and not hydrating enough is bad mojo. I know the signs and I almost ignored them :baldy

    I have been slugging water since we got home ~11:00 and I still have not pissed yet but Im starting to feel recovery coming on.


    good to see everyone thanks again Sara for putting this together




    and Boonie

    My Michelle sure felt comfortable on the back of the 'wing.... May need to clear some space in the garage for one of them....

    These two got along way too easy. I think that they could be more than a handful at a future rally....:D

    ...Michelle is on her laptop lurking the thread now... Perhaps she'll finally register. Though I doubt if she will choose Flaming Ho as her screen name. As you read it, the alliteration with "flamingo" does not come to mind....:D

    It was great to meet you! Thank you for bringing yourself and adding to the fun. Can't wait to see you at a campfire again this year.

    Thanks everyone for coming! Thank you LD for feeding us. It was most appreciated. Boonie, your breakfast hit the spot for both carnivores and grazers. I think we all had fun! It was nice to see some new faces too. Jane, Lisa B, MiTchelle, Kenny, PJ and Steven were all brave enough to jump in with both feet.

    Despite unusually warm temps Willville wasn't too bad. The shade and the creek make it pretty nice. Hopefully, next year the temperature will be a little better for folks traveling.

    Y'all wanna do it again next year?
