Years ago, I used to paddle/tube the James a lot, and start or end was more often than not, at Hatton Ferry.

It sounds like the Ferry's days are now being counted. I think a Hatton crossing needs to occur soon. I'm guessing a lot of other folks will soon be thinking of the same.

I wonder how many ADV bikes they'll allow on ferry at one time...

I mentioned this ferry during the campout this past weekend. I would be interested in a ferry ride for sure. Sooner the better! July 1 is listed as the closure date! http://www.readthehook.com/blog/inde...on-ferry-fans/

There's a June 7 ride announcement elsewhere. I've got HS graduation that weekend. But I'm up for a ride sometime soon...

On Sunday June 7, a group of us plan to ride over to Hatton and cruise across the James. We'll be leaving the Greenwood Restaurant, just N. of Troutville, VA on US 11, after breakfast that day. We'll meet for breakfasat at 9:30.
Sent him a PM for any more info or a related thread

Photos from today's tag grab

Had a great time riding around southwest of Staunton today when I went to grab the tag. Took some pictures of the roads I rode down and other interesting sites. Here they are. Hope you enjoy.
























That's it. After this last shot, I placed the new tag and then high-tailed it home. All in all, was gone for 5hrs, and rode 230 miles!
