Check here for updated meets!

Or some semblance thereof.
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.

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.

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??!!" )

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.
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???
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.

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.
I'd like to meet you too! I actually saturated every thread on the first two pages in the SE regionals.
h14xl. I'll have to ask him to grind me some. Actually I better not. I just met him three days ago and he has hooked me up with some bike goodies! Thanks allonsye!

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

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!

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.

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

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.

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.
