Question Meetup With Local Riders TN,WV In Late June

Hey all. I will be getting married in June and for our honeymoon we will be riding xcountry.
LittlePosum and I were curious if there are any meet ups or rallies going on in Tennessee or West Virginia around the last week of June.

Not TN or WV but what's a couple hundred miles more if your riding cross country!

Thanks,exactly what we are looking for!
We WILL be going that way, but about 1 week or so to late.
Then again, there's really no set agenda other than the date we leave.
Looks like a good time!

Our plan is to leave Bend, Oregon on 6/12 and be in Arkansas around 6/20.
We are not taking much time to get through OR, ID, NV, UT, and CO since those are close enough we can pretty much go anytime.

Once we hit Arkansas we will slow the pace down. Our goal is to meet and ride with locals along the way, large meet ups or not.
The rough route brings us through AR,TN,WV,PA. Then to VT where I grew up.
A big part of where our route takes us is where and when we can meet other riders. There is no designated route on this month long trip!

I am on a Honda XR600R and LittlePosum a Suzuki DRZ400S. We are up for any kind of riding, trail or slab.

I will bump this thread up as the date gets closer. Look forward to meeting folks from each region along our ride!

Couple of pics of us.








LittlePosum riding a little slice of heaven in our state.

Post up in the catherders thread too. We're up around Harrisonburg va but usually someone's around and always willing to show people around. Or better yet, just pick a place and date and start your own campout. People will show up.

Bump!!!

The time is almost here! We leave Oregon in less than 30 hours from now!

Not sure where we'll end up, but we will be working our way up to Vermont. I'll have a better idea in several days when we approach Arkansas.
I'll update this as we get closer and look for local suggestions!
Thanks! Justin

The ride starts here in the Pacific Northwet. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=985991

Then heads to the Rockies. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=986224

I didn't know anybody got married anymore?

What are y'all thinking?

We'll be married 33 years next month, wish y'all the best, all the best.

If you are around Hungry Mother VA on July the 4th let me know. Route 16 and environs are nice rides.
