The first camp out of the year…. The Party Boss tm ….
Wanted to camp after the long hard winter.. So a bunch of us said where and when…
The second weekend in April it is !!! The Place.. at our good friends place “WillVille”
The motorcycle camp ground in Meadows of Dan, Va.…Just off the BRP…
A great place .... With a nice creek....

Highbinder & I head out after chores…We stopped at our favorite Chinese restaurant in Hillsville… Then we are only a hope skip and a just from Will’s ….

We pulled in a little after noon… only 1 tent Kyle’s ….
So we unpack


HB’s bike all unpacked ..


Then it off to the Poor Farmers Market ,just to see if there is anything I just got to have ..
I did pick up a little something for my sister .Who had just lost her dog….



There’s me honey…. He had injured his shoulder a few weeks back…
So we really didn’t know how it would be camping… But he was game to give it a go…



The campground started to fill up…





FreakingRT showed up !!! And staked his claim to a spot..



Folks just hanging around at Will’s



Will was havig some Cookies and cream icecream…HB was wondering why he didn't offer any to all of us.. Just kidding…..



We brought 2 kinds of Chili with us for supper…. Others went up the road to eat…
Hey we are to be camping … Not sleeping outside and eating out…Oh well what ever…



257Bob rolls in ... I stoll this pix from KnyBanjo .. We shared our meal with him ….



I had baked the night before , and shared some of the Banana nut rum bread that I made..


Will had the bonfire going … Photo taken by HappyRiding....


Sat around told a few tales …Then we went to the tent for the night.. At first it was just rain and a few claps of thunder, no big deal ..
Then the lighting was all crazy colours and the thunder was just about simultaneously



You can’t really see it but I was really worried… As the hail started to fall big time…
All I could think ,was my bike is uncovered !!! I sure hope it’s not big hail pellets…



Thanks to Gaston Gagne here’s a pix of the Hail….



Saturday morning while most went for a ride to our neck of the woods …
HB & I packed up …Had things to do on the farm.. We didn’t have anyone to watch and feed the stock for this trip ….



Shoving/stuffing our sleeping bag in the wheel wells…



TheBlack is just about loaded…



On our way home we stopped at the other Va.Farmers Market .. To pick up some honey ..
I was getting low…. We looked for the group ride .. But they had left a good 2 hours in front of us… By the time we ate and shopped… We got home just in time .around 1:15 The skies opened up once more… We had hoped that the group had changed there route , as the rains had been really heavy…. Didn’t see them heading up rt 614…

Sorry I didn’t take anymore pix… With the odd weather the camera seamed to stay out of sight….
Had a blast … It was good to see a few people that we knew…
And to met a few new ones …Plus put a face to a few names….

Yuppers it was a good Friday/Saturday…





Saturday night our buddy calls us and said… It’s got to be to wet for ya to do your work
So why don’t you both meet us at the Snake!!!!
Part two….. To be continued…
