That is weird, I played with it and it is doing something odd.

You may want to check with your doctor.

April 6th through the 8th. Bring Sherry and your kayaks!  8)

Thanks, sorry I missed the date.

I won't be able to make that weekend.  Besides, there appears to be too many swinging docks.   :)

Aw darn.  :(

Well, on the upswing we are guaranteed to not be rained out this time.  ;D

Ah. Doug the Jedi. To fade to nothing with zero influence on the physical world, thus being “more powerful than you can possibly imagine.”

The Jedi were never right. I like to think Doug has a better record than any Jedi, ever.

I did have to sacrifice a BMW voltage regulator to make that happen.  I specify, "BMW" 'cause I learned it cost twice as much for the same product fitted to any other make of bikes.


You're welcome.

Yeeehaaawww.  Me and Sue are planning on being there.  Sure, put us to work!!!  Grilling or whatever.  The camping on the dock offer is what concreted the deal for my wife.  Barring a shitty rain storm we are planning on leaving Thursday after work and camping in Delaware off of the ferry and heading to you by Friday afternoon.  Looking forward to meeting you Eric.  Thanks for the weekend away.  This also gives me a shake down attempt to posting on a imgur account that I have to open for my future ride reports.

Just a quick update, we have 3 bunks 1 bunk, 2 day beds, 1 queen size and 1 air mattress all gone!, the rest have been spoken for. There's an ice maker in the saloon so if you need any please don't bring any. There was mild interest in the patches/stickers so I didn't follow through on that idea.

Regarding food? My original plan was the usual burger/dogs & accoutrements. I'm open for suggestions if folks would like to march in a different direction? Brats, mac & cheese, potato salad, open for discussion if anyone has any ideas? There will be a full kitchen at your disposal should you wish to prepare your own grub.

If you would prefer to hotel it, there's only two options.

HighPoint Marina (The nicer of the two, sundry store, nice view) 2 miles from the cabin even though it says Mineral, we live on the county line.
Lighthouse Inn
4634 Courthouse Rd.
Mineral, VA  23117
540 895 5249
http://www.highpointmarina.com/2015/05/lighthouse-inn.html

Lake Anna Lodge (Fleabag motel that the bass tourney fisherman use) Bar on the premises, 1 mile from the cabin, no view.
5152 Courthouse Rd.
Spotsylvania, VA 22553
Phone: (540) 895-5302
http://www.thelakeannalodge.com/

There's many vineyards to visit if you wish. The closest being Lake Anna Winery. They are very active in the community, hosts RenFest, events with music and such.
http://www.lawinery.net/

If you're a civil war buff I can point you in a hundred different directions.

Anteitam National Battlefield - The Bloodiest Day in American History--Hope for Freedom
https://www.nps.gov/anti/index.htm

Harper's ferry - A must see if you haven't visited before.
https://www.nps.gov/hafe/index.htm

If you're a WW2 buff there's the tank museum which is awesome. About 2.5 hrs ride each way in Danville.
https://www.aaftankmuseum.com/

Jamestown settlement, fort and museum is cool to check out as well.
https://www.visitwilliamsburg.com/topic/jamestown

There's some right decent photos of that area in my Vespa thread here. http://www.sport-touring.org/index.php?topic=4864.15



Nice dining there's Tim's at lake Anna for seafood about 20 minutes away.
http://timslakeanna.com/

BRPW and Skyline Drive need no introduction.

Ask away should you need any other information and we hope to see you there! We are roughly only 7 to 8 weeks away! Woot woot!

Eric

PS: I'll pm my personal address and phone to each of you when we get closer. I do not wish to publish it on the world wide web.

PS: Y'all have clean towels, washcloths & hand-towels, so no need to pack those. None match so...

I'm as "in" as I ever am. It's on the calendar on the fridge, and that's as official as it gets around here.

Weather and road conditions have no guarantees in early April here at home, but the average weather at your place looked pretty good to me.

If things go according to plan, since I'm trucking the moto down, I'll bring a mountain bike, and get some rides in.

I haven't spent much time planning this trip yet.  Accommodations wise, I'm not picky, and may even sleep in my truck, now that Smoker has dibs on the top bunk.  :wave:

Mike,

I'll be riding a Yam FZ-10. The VFRs are iconic and many have them on this site I believe. A couple of the folks last year went to Moto GP in Austin last year. I was in Austin the same weekend for other reasons and didn't get to see the event. If you go, please take some pics and share!

Eric,

Cool beans.  Not 100% on Austin as I wanted to go up to Quebec, but too cold in April so I may head west.  I have family in Austin area so it is a viable option and I can stop by Mammoth Cave and ride the Ozarks on the way over.  Being retired with no responsibilities often leaves me with too many options.  Looking forward to meeting you.

Eric,

I really appreciate you opening up your place to us and count me in. I'll take whatever is left, or let me know if I should bring an air mattress.

This looks like a great way to kick off the riding season.

I'm going to tag an air mattress for you as it's getting slim pickings and you're coming from Canada. Please let me know if you have a conflict come up.

Thanks.

I'll surely keep you in the loop.

Mine is pretty simple but scenic in places.  211 from New Market, 340 South to 33 east to your area.

Any nearby hotels you can recommend?  Sorry, but Skee won't share a bunk, and I spoon snore.

Jeets,

I have one air mattress left and no one has claimed it or the reloading room so you would have privacy. To answer your question, there's two motels very close by, both within 2 miles of home. Only one is somewhat decent. I should mention that air mattress is a  double so a decent size.

There's a Best Western, Quality Inn and Holiday Inn in Thornburg which is about 18 miles away if you would prefer. These hotels were primarily built to service the new NASCAR track Old Dominion Speedway, they are brand new except the Qulaity Inn is old, old, old. Idk if they renovated it recently?

I hope you can make it as folks may not know but Jeet's is the man when it comes to photography!  8)

That's a real nice place you got there Eric! Looks relaxing.
I'd be glad to join and meet some of you guys if you'd have me.
I'll know for sure if I can make it in a couple of weeks.

Love to have you! I'll put you on the tentative list. A finer group of laid back riders you will not meet! As we get closer to the date I'll pm my address and contact info.

So were you being facetious about a flat spot for my trailer and room to get it in there without damaging anything?  If not, we can probably make this happen.  I see a massive puppy play date in the works in the middle of all this motorcycle stuff.  This will likely become Hemi's first camping trip as well.

Bill,

There should be no problems accommodating your motorhome and trailer. I don't know if I have enough extension cord to get power to your rig though. Pups are more than welcome.  :)

Just the truck and trailer.  I'm about 51 feet long combined.  I can probably do without power.  I have a whisper quiet Honda 2000 I could run in the back of the pick up if necessary...or if allowed.  :)
