I said I was in before I realized I'm in the same spot you are. I'll be getting off at 7 that morning too. I know what you mean about being around people after working all night, people tend to think I'm a dick or slightly retarded. I'm going to try and make it, they make a hell of a hamburger there. I'll ride with the water dept. if they'll let me tag along.

Just messin' witcha. I think you'll love it and probably won't ride the KLR no more once you get a little taste of what she can do! I know that as long as I have my DRZ, I'll never miss my KLR.

Little motorsickle ride today

Out through horse country south of Middleburg. Just to take some photos.

Bust Head Road--most of you know it.



NOVA tag site from last year on Bust Head, by the RR tracks.







Old stone fence along Bull Run Mountain Road. Saw several of these "fence on a fence" arrangements today.






Rock Hill Mill Road, was tootling on by and almost missed this gem.



Sweet Daffodil there . . .



Through the door . . . .




A little further on, along Burrland Road. The silo looks like tile, but it's probably rusty metal. Fantastic texture and color.





Playing with color accent feature in the camera. Blue, obviously . . . .



Poison Ivy, anyone?











Onward. Carter's Mill Road. Suspect the road is very old; dug or worn down between two cutbanks, almost like a "sunken road."




Brunhilda was heading back to the barn along VA 55 when she decided to visit Chapman's Mill, in Thoroughfare Gap. The mill was the site of the Battle of Thoroughfare Gap during the run-up to Second Manassas. Changed hands several times and was destroyed. Rebuild after the war and operational for years. Victim of arson towards the end of the last century, its been stabilized. Easy to see from the freeway, looks like nice hiking on the conservancy property too.

The store.



Mill behind.




Another mill shot




A ruined building on the other side of the railroad tracks. Might hafta check this out sometime.




Will probably post on the NOVA Chatter Thread too . . . .

Meet and Greet

I'm looking to meet up with some folks who are going up to Marshall next weekend for the lunch. Anybody leaving from the Harrisonburg general area, and not taking the super slab? If you don't mind me tagging along I would appreciate it. Just give me a shout or pm.
