Wow! What a great dance. Thanks to Mr. blooch for hosting such a fine event. I am sorry that i missed the bbq, but i am happy that i could contribute to the delinquency of a few friends. It's always a good time at the compound.

Home. Rain, drizzle, wind, 5 seconds of sun then more of the other three. Abused by bluehairs going 15 under on the way to church.

Can't find my two large BWDR stickers.

It was good to see everyone and to start some more new friendships.

blooch, thanks again for being a river to your people.

Made it home. I checked my oil and straps after I cleared Skyline (all were fine) only to find my starter / battery was getting weaker and only just barely started the bike. I had enough gas, so decided to push for home only to hit the hardest rain of the journey. And I can't stop to put on rain gear...

There also were a seemingly large number of people on VA-20 headed west, plus some trailer I was behind that was going 50 and spraying water everywhere.

Lessons learned:

-Frogg Toggs are a hell of a lot more waterproof than the inside rain lining of (at least my) jacket. To be fair the rain linig did work, but anything the outer, wet mesh touched became drenched, such as the belt line,

-Standard riding pants don't keep water out very well

-Camping hammocks work if you take the time to work how to arrange it so you don't sag into the center. You also must work out proper knots (taut-line hitches are very handy). Make sure you have about 15' webbing loop to go around big trees. Hennessy's included straps are too $%^$% short.

-Tarps are a good thing, but only if they are covering that which you want to not get rain on it. Nylon tarps give more acreage per pound

-Nothing dries when the humidity is 100%

-Tom knows Gore-Tex

-I love my external frame backpack for the ease with which the frame can be strapped to a bike and that other things can be strapped to it or the bike.

-Inmates are awesome! Thanks to everyone (esp. Blooch!)

Now I need to look up some of those big webbing straps and a pair of Sidi boots...

Made it home without running over anybody. Time for a shower and a nap, I'll play mechanic another day.

Thanks for everything Blooch it was a blast, let's do it again next year but on Banshee's off weekend.
