If you havn't been there in a while Mountain Lake would shock you. I call it Mountain Puddle now.

NOVA's not too bad if you can stay out of the traffic. My son lives in Culpeper, lots of pretty country in the area.
We rode Eggleston Rd last week heading to NC. It sure is a fun road. Mt Lake was kind of low last time I was by it.

We are in Culpeper too and is close enough to NOVA to be able to get to work and far enough away to avoid most of the headhaches.

You all have brought back great memories of riding all over that state on my Moto Guzzi - thank you.

BTW.........


I think that if you really need to pass through Va. it would be best to stick to the I-95 corridor.

If you do have to venture off of the main route I strongly suggest staying north and east of exit 156.

I lived 2 blocks from that train. It looked happy 20 some years ago too.

And I forgot about the guard rail on Ft Valley.
