tomorrows ride

Meeting place ..... Wawa on W Broad St at 288.

Departure time (not meeting time) ..... 9:30

Easy ride. Back roads up to Lake Anna for lunch. (Tim's at Lake Anna Restaurant and Crab house) Maybe a stop in Orange to watch a couple skydivers land then make our way home. No pressure.

Option .... back roads up towards Orange then stop for late lunch at Lake Anna.

Madstrom...

Think you passed me between Cumberland CH and the Powhatan Co line yesterday. I had the Ranger on the trailer and an ATV in the back of my truck.

Blue Grass looks the same. Miss it.

Hey Jimmie!

How have you been doing? Was that you? That was just a short distance east of Cumberland CH. I tried to just kinda ease by you. The cops are rampant out there. The County Sheriff was the next car up the hill and did a U-Turn when he got up there at the intersection. I had settled down to a sedate 60-61 mph. The red Volvo behind me must have followed you all the way to Powhatan. I had motioned to her to slow down going through the CH and to watch for the cops. I had followed her from Amherst to just before Sprouses Corner.

re: weather, you're welcome.

Last week in what seemed like the dead of winter - I sent my bike shock off for rebuild and sell my convertible. Then bam! 70F..
