I am definitely still enjoying this. I have come to like the pace at which updates come out.

I usually get sucked into a ride report and it's like chugging beer - absorbing as many pictures and anecdotes as possible in as little time as possible.

This is more like having a glass of scotch that makes you savor a single ounce over an hour or so.

I know which I prefer.

Great story. It just goes to show that you don't need the latest and greatest to have a nice trip.

By the way, if you haven't done it yet, I'd say it is time for a new air filter and a valve check.

cville rider late to this RR

I'm really enjoying reading this ride report - fantastic shots and a nice travelogue. You are quite adventurous!

I'm pretty new to ADV but a long time rider and I work at UVa in c'ville - did I see your bike parked behind the e-school last year? I feel like I remember suddenly seeing a Radian appear in the past year or so. I lusted after one back in the 80s when I was still on late 70s UJMs as an undergrad myself. I ride a vstrom you might've seen parked there some.

Keep coming with the report!

This is an amazing ride report! It really makes me want to make this trip as well, even though it feels like I've been to a number of these spots through reading your adventure. Keep them coming as you've got the time, they've been a treat to read.

Add another local to your followers! I live in Nelson County, but work in Cville at UVa also. I started reading your report about three months ago and was instantly hooked.

I lost my father one month ago today. I've been caught up in his illness, the hospital and subsequent placement of my Mom in assisted living for the past seven weeks or so. I couldn't wait to get back to your story and journey. With the recent losses in my life, and my wanderlust and desire to ride out the pain, your story means all the more to me now.

Thanks for sharing your tale. I'd love to meet you someday and buy you a beer (of course at one of the amazing breweries down in good 'ol Nelson).

Brava! Great writing.
