July4th weekend The Itteh Bitteh Kitteh Camp out...Part 1 of 2

Or the Campout at the farm....



This was our first group gathering of ADV friends at the farm..
Friday late after noon HBN was the first to arrive..



HBN brings a gift...Yum it was berries...



HBN(Mike) brought his hammock tent...



Filling his hammock up with sleeping gear..



Friday Night we sat around the fire..



Sat morning HBN took off for a ride ..
HB and I stayed at the farm to greet the other rider/campers that were showing up..

MidnightRider



Even a few local day riders showed





257Bob & FluteSong showed up..



USMC6 & MuffenMonster showed up ..That bike is sure loaded



Highbinder(Don) took the day riders and a few of the campers for a ride to Burkes'Garden and Big Walker Mountain & VA16 ..

The guys getting ready..



The Classic Burkes'Garden sign...



They call BG Gods Thumb print



Then they did the dirt road out of BG...



BMWEW1 Navigates the dirt turn..



The guys came upon this fella who had dropped his bike in the dirt..






The fellas up on Big Walker Mtn for a break..



And VA16...



Plus that classic VA16 shot..



While the guys rode us ADV ladies stayed at the farm just in case more riders showed up like Turkeyman 101... Here he is reading the mag write up on TheScooterDogCart in "Trikes"



We even pulled the ScooterDog cart out..FYI , I use to pull this cart with my Beast.. (GreenValkTrike)



FluteSong(Carol) Made a cool sweet snack..



The guys are back !!!



They rolled in just in time for Supper.. Dang that's a lot of bikes...



HBN Teinking teinking always teinking....



Eric and Fosters Australian for Beer...Look at the size of that can...



More fireside chats...




ScooterCat ,putting The Itteh Bitteh Kitteh in the Campout...
She hung around with us each night ,before she would retire to the house for bed....

Sunday morning was the group ride ...
HBN will take point...Waiting for the group to get ready..



In deep thought on the ride at hand..



And we are off heading down the driveway...



It's off to the other side of va16...
HBN digging the twisties..



The backside of Bishop



Riding through all the little coal towns and past War..



Then it was off to Breaks Interstate park...
HBN taking a stretch... This photo was taken right before he did the bee sting dance...



The roads to BIP are just fantastic...



At the Park's visitor center..We are starting to get hungry



HBN & Bmwew1 are thinking about running to KY...
At this point the group is going to split up...



And the other group heads for food and back to the farm ,that is still a few hours away... We hit a few back roads to Vansant to 460..



Running up 460 from Grundy to Richlands is a blast..



Highbinder and I run it side by side most of the time...



We stop in richlands at a local Chinese restaurant..
And again at this point we split up once again as 257Bob want to change the oil in his Strom and needs oil to do it back at the farm..
SO Highbinder takes one group with him and we go to WallyWorld ..
We roll back at the an hour later....

Muffynmoster walks down to see the ole stallion KC..



The other group rolls in more chatting about the days ride..



More beer !!! After a great day of riding some super cool twisties...



More hanging out..The fire pit was nice..



We also did get to see some of the higher fire works that was being displayed in town. about 10 miles away... It was cool.. As the ones we did see where huge bursts...

Monday morning was pack up n head home..
HBN was the first to get ready..



He checks his GPS for his back roads route back home..



Bye HNB



257Bob & FluteSong where next out ...



BMWEW1 (DCRider)Slept on the deck all weekend..



He had a lot of stuff..



At this point he is wondering where in the world did he pack that to get here...



The last one to leave is 6USMC6 & his daughter Muffynmonster..
Here he just started to pack..



With the bike loaded and 6USMC6 on it ,Muffynmonster looks at it wondering.. So dad ,were do I sit ??



We had a blast having our buddies at the farm for the weekend..

And once again we lock our gate and life back on the Mountain farm is back to normal till next time

Hey B..
Good to see ya !!
LOL.. Yes I am once again way behind from posting up RR and day trips...
Only due to the fact that I still have to upload to my photo site

So keep an eye out I will be getting ready to story up again real soon...

Hey to the Family

We are doing great.. Getting ready for the first snow fall this weekend..
But this year we are ready... Bought a Roof Rake to make snow removal off the roofs easier.. We had way to much damage to gutters last year from all the snow and Ice Dams...

The Barn is chucked full of hay





Don did a good deal of brushogging this year..





The cattle are doing great!!

Poncho is as big as ever!! Oh he is now 2nd in command !!
He seems to have had a battle with Tory!! No one was hurt..Other then pride.



Lefty is looking good..



Cisco's horns are twisting



The NEW herd leader Tory...Yeah he doesn't look so massive but trust me he is !



Charro has grown well, she is still cute as a button..



Tuco is really showing her dairy cow /longhorn breeding...



Yazhi has grown into a little bull!!
Not to bad looking too,for a calf that almost died this winter..



No pix of Castanet she didn't want her pix taken...

This year it looks like we will once again increase the heard.. Remember they went walkabout, well they came home with a beautiful Charolais Bull for a few weeks.. Then when they were finished with him they walked him back home Ya got to love longhorns/Corriente ... So it looks like calves in Jan/Feb/March ! Oh my...


Ok I know this has not a dang thing to do with Moto's ..
But hey it's part of my life, and this is my thread
So enjoy my antics of also life on the farm...
Oh one day ya might see my horse photos too

But I'll have more moto stories coming real soon...

Clicked on your report out of curiosity and got sucked in! Loved all of your RR's and pictures. The farm looks fantastic, quite different from my neck of the woods Gotta see that part of the country sometime in my future.
Thanks! Ride on, ride safe

Valkeries on a dirt road must have been fun, or terrifying depending on your perspective.
Fosters is a ladies beer, regardless of the size of the can. Maybe he's trying to compensate for something.
