I was out west with my father a few weeks ago with the bikes. We were in Colorado and Utah. The weather got a little crazy for us and the animals were migrating. We were having tons of fun, but as the conditions got a little worse, we chose to come home early. After a week out west, we decided that the roads out here are so good that they were worth coming home for. We spent the last couple of days of our trip riding the local roads that we take for granted. We were also able to sleep in our own beds. The adventure was great, but I realize we are fortunate. Less that an hour from DC opens up to tight twisties, good elevation and safe road surfaces. I'm not comparing NOVA to Colorado or Moab on a sunny 70 degree day, I'm just saying that NOVA is far from sucking. Try not to take it for granted.
