Hey HBN !

Muffynmonster wants to know more about "Mary's Rock" ! Like where is it ?

And change the blurb under your name slick -

You're not "cheap".

Frugal, thrifty, careful like a Scottsman, but never cheap.

Right about here...

38.65055, -78.31735

It's not too hard a hike and has a nice view to the West! You can park in the old Panorama building parking lot(38.659788, -78.321788) on the SW side of Skyline drive, head up the steps and pick up the Appalachian trail up to the top.

Blixa, having met both of you at our local shindig in Oldtowne, I'd say you would both fit in great. Stay tuned to the thread for our next meet. You may want to work on your beard though, it was a bit chilly out on this latest ride

Great hike and wonderful view overlooking Thornton Gap. For those less interested in the 9 mi hike, there is a nearby parking area on The Drive (or park at the top of Thornton Gap) and hike on to the overlook. There is a nice open area and flat space up top. I imagine it'd be packed in warmer months.

Thanks HBN!
I'll likely wait until there's a meet in non-beard requisite temps. Anything below 40 and I'm an icicle in my gear.

I'll schedule the next RTE for above 40 and sunny. Guarantied!

How's that?

How far South? The question is, how far North are you willing to travel to hang out with a bunch of crazy inmates. With my schedule and bike I'd never make it to a RTE South of Harrisonburg.

Sadly, I was not blessed with a hairy back, thus limiting my misadventures to more temperate climes.
