Check here for updated meets!
 
Or some semblance thereof. :evil
I ran into vatrader01 at Lowes the other day and we must have talked for a 3-4 hours. While we were there a red Vstrom showed up. It was allonsye! We had a mini ADV rally right there in the Lowes parking lot! We all talked for another 2+ hours! One of the things we talked about was to try and get a meet and greet together.
Meet #6...TBD:evil

Sweet! I was trying to get a Harrisonburg lunch together, but haven't heard any interest yet. Hey. It's what we do.

I would love to hear more input. I am interested.

pnoman 02-15-2011 05:48 PM

If you will put up with an out-of-stater, I'd like to meet and re-meet y'all. So you saw vatrader01, eh? He is a most interesting guy. We've had a few good discussions - mostly WV Historical Markers and what life must have been like in years past.

I'd like to join in unless I've been banned for my WV Tag rants ("What? The 10th consecutive tag in the same county??!!" :lol3 )

Vatrader01 and I met once for lunch at a nice BBQ diner in Shenandoah - Uncle somebody?? EDIT: COUSIN BOOGIES They had room for maybe 20-30 or more, if I remember. Probably not big enough.

EDIT: My elbow is still recovering from surgery, so I probably won't be making the ride before Mid- to Late-March.

So...what do you guys and gals think of a meet and greet somewhere in a central location to all who are interested in coming? I'm hoping to get some NOVA folks, Cat Herders, SMIB's and anyone else in between.
Shout out if interested. Depending on who wants to come will help decide where to meet up. It could be for breakfast or lunch. If there are people coming a long distance lunch may be better. :dunno
Some ideas I have are The Old Salem restaurant in beautiful downtown Marshall. They have a huge dinning room. The food has been good the three times I have eaten there. There are some good roads in the area to ride after the meal.
Another option is Christina's Cafe in Strasburg. I haven't eaten there but some friends have and they liked it. They have awesome espresso! There are some excellent roads in this area too!
Vatrader and allonsye had some good ideas for restaurants too. Hopefully they will chime in with their suggestions.
So who's "IN" and or has any other ideas??? :ear

Hell yea, I'm in for Old Salem restaurant, they make a hellluva fresh ground hamburger. Some of us have met up before at the southern kitchen in New Market, good eats there as well. Speaking of fresh ground, Allonsye used to be able to fresh grind coffee but no more.:deal:lol3

bwalsh 02-15-2011 05:55 PM

valongbeard. :thumb
pnoman. Hell yeah. Yeah VAtrader01 is a really cool guy! I enjoyed talking to him the other day. I'm also trying to push him back into the downward spiral of tagging. :lol3
I'd like to meet you too! I actually saturated every thread on the first two pages in the SE regionals. :lol3
h14xl. :thumb I'll have to ask him to grind me some. :deal Actually I better not. I just met him three days ago and he has hooked me up with some bike goodies! :clap Thanks allonsye!

So I'll start an "IN" list in the first post.

H14 02-15-2011 06:03 PM

That's a sorry looking "IN" list so far.

ONandOFF 02-15-2011 06:06 PM

Sounds terriffic. Can't say IN or OUT 'till a place and date are set tho...

LadyDraco 02-15-2011 06:09 PM

Highbinder and I could be a maybe :dunno

ORexpat 02-15-2011 06:11 PM

This Saturday or Sunday?
 
May have a kitchen pass for one of the days this weekend . . . . Weather's forecast to be dogpoop on Monday. Meeting y'all for lunch would make a good excuse for a ride! :clap

I like the idea of Strasburg. Marshall's close to the RLD but OK too.

Another thought would be the Griffin Tavern in Flint Hill. I like that place. :dg

We'll extend the cutoff a few more minutes...:lol3

George, You've got to be an in so the meet will be closer to you!

LadyDraco, That would be terrific. You two would most likely get the longest distance award.
:clap

Old Man River 02-15-2011 06:20 PM

I'm in! :D
Just can't make it the first two weeks of March.
Marshall and Strasburg are cool - Flint Hill is even better.

I guess we could do one this weekend too. I'm free.
Sperryville is an option too, at least for lunch at the BBQ place.
The reason I posted now was to get a count of how many folks would be interested then trying to figure out where to meet. Something two, three or four(?) weeks out. Depending on who's coming and from how far they are coming from will dictate where to have it.
I guess we could split them up too, eg: NOVA meet, Valley meet, etc.
I also posted in the SMIB thread so...
My thought was someplace central to the regulars on the chatter threads and the tag threads. I'm also going to post on the Charlottesville riders thread.

BluWolf 02-15-2011 06:26 PM

Complete noob looking to meet other riders. Call me IN.

Skyclad 02-15-2011 06:26 PM

Hmmm, depending on the when, I can make both those where's for lunch with my southern neighbors.

H14 02-15-2011 06:28 PM

Dammit I need some breakfast. Just tell me where.
