I totally forgot to take pictures, I think.

It was not only great as usual, but the weather was perfect. Simply perfect. Meredith rode the R51/3 and I took the /5, since we went to the Fo5 the day before at Seneca Rocks. The opening act was Uphill Ride, as usual, and the main act in the barn was Harvey Reid, who played the following night at the Gravity Lounge in Charlottesville. He was just amazing. Incredible skills, on the acoustic, 6-string banjo, autoharp and blues guitar.

And to top it off, I managed to pass a Harley on an uphill curve riding the /3 back over the mountains on Sunday morning.
