Saturday looks to have dried up a little. Feeling hopeful about the weather...

And consider me IN on dinner, either night.

Also in for dinner either night. Thanks!
Unfortunately the earliest I can get down there will be about mid-afternoon Friday.

Is there a route planned yet for the dual sport ride friday? Are we doing Garry's route? Anybody stepped up to lead yet?  Smoker (cough, cough) ?

Yes, I plan to do Garry's route Friday depending on how sloppy the "roads" are. There's several bail out points along the route if it ends up being too muddy. The pace will most likely be sedate as my off pavement skills are lacking, but you are most welcome to join. Kickstands up at 8am at Yokums.

Clockwise or counter clockwise?  Will FS 18 or 13(?) be in the mix early?

Clockwise is the plan. FS 18 maybe 10ish? Not seeing a 13 on the route?

FORMAL INVITATION:

Read to the bottom please

Saturday, September 22nd at 7:30pm, Campsite 37

All participants of this camping adventure extraordinaire are hereby invited to join the occupants of Site 37 for an evening of light snacks and appetizers followed by dinner, music, (from the outdoor speakers on the rig) and fellowship and camaraderie.  Dinner will be a simple pasta affair consisting of:

Barilla penne pasta with Kim's home made pasta sauce.
Sauce contains tomato, onion, mushroom, carrots, peppers, garlic and misc spices.
Available separately to add to your sauce will be a couple lbs of browned, mildly spiced, ground deer meat.
We will be bringing probably 4 large loaves of Kim's home made bread.  I plan to have the outdoor grill hot and foiled to drop buttered and garlic salted bread onto for redneck garlic bread if anyone wishes. 
There will be plenty of parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, black pepper and garlic salt available.
Snacks of home made pickles, pesto and slaw along w/ chips, peanuts, and misc other bits will be out prior to dinner unless we eat them all Friday.  :)

BUT WAIT - THERE'S MORE!!

Saturday, September 22nd at 7:30AM, Campsite 37

You're also cordially invited to breffas Saturday MORNING!! 

This is a little less structured but we're bringing a crapton of eggs (from our chickens), cheese, ham, peppers, tomatoes, butter, bread etc so something is going to be served.  I promised Smoker an omelet for leading the ride Friday but the rest of you monkeys will probably just get to pile onto a plate some combination of the above, probably scrambled eggs and sautéed ham and veggies you can toss some cheese on and throw on bread if you like.   But hey, it's breakfast. 

Coffee will be served and we'll have sugar and some organic half and half creamer available.  Other than that, y'all are responsible for your own beverages. 

See you in a few days!!!

Bill and Kim

My bike is already in WV, so I'll be driving down. I'm likely dragging my trailer along for other reasons; happy to shuttle anyone down who's got any concerns about the ride down and/or back, etc. Hollah if. I'm planning on leaving early Thursday AM at this point, but I'm pretty fluid for a departure anywhere from Wed PM to Friday early AM.

Is there anyone who WON'T make it to breakfast Saturday?  Calculating quantities.

Perhaps you didn't pick up on the seriousness of the need for chocolate.  It is very real. 

You got a 4 slot extra large toaster?  That wouldn't be unwelcome. Otherwise, Kim is going to a lot of time and effort so she will likely have everything sorted.

Aura and I will not be at breakfast Saturday. Will be having breakfast at the cabin. What time are you guys thinking of heading out for the Saturday road ride?  Want to make sure I'm down by then.

I can bring a toaster, and I can snag some chocolate. I can bring a toaster oven that's sitting idle for the moment, too.  :thumbsup:

You better bring the chocolate first.  And if everyone bails because of the weather, there will be some leftover pasta.   :-\  And a need for additional chocolate.

If anyone else is out, let me know.

Thats still a better than 50% chance it wont rain. I'm sticking with that.  75 and sunny baby.  :wings: 
Bed of truck loaded and packed. Cab half packed. Just need to load and ice down the coolers in the morning then we are on the road. Figuring on a 5-6pm arrival.

You bringing a ramp?  If you are coming to me to unload and reload, maybe you don't need to bring your ramp. I will have my trifold atv ramp. Up to you.

Oh god. Tell me you grabbed a room at Fox’s and not Thompson’s. Thompson’s is mildew and mold capital of the world. Last I stayed there I was a solid week recovering.

Yep, bringing the ramp. It doubles as a bed extender. Thanks for the offer though.

Sadly, I’m not going to be able to make it.
I was really looking forward to seeing everyone.
Unfortunately the house of cards collapsed and
I simply can’t get away.
Hasn’t been a good year for motorcycle trips.
Hope everyone has a great time. Ride safe.

Dinosaur Land seems to be your natural roosting spot. ;)

I'm less than thrilled, bordering on pissed, that I have to bail. I've been on "all hands on deck" calls all week, and the one last night and early this AM screwed by expected departure time. I thought i'd finished up all the calls, and then I got called into an in-person meeting, and had to turn the car around a whopping 35 miles from home. There are tons of benefits working for such a small company, but holy sweet f*(k a day off sure would be nice.

Have fun. Stay dry. Someone enjoy that great dinner for me. (sigh)

Just pulled into the marina and all good albeit the water is really high.  Had a great few days meeting you guys and riding the fantastic WV roads.  Hope all make it home safely.  BTW here is the link to Knopf tours: http://www.knopftours.com/Web-Site/Welcome.html

Great big "THANKS" to Ken for putting this together, Bill and Kim for the hospitality and grub, and to the girls for showing this fellow a swell time--until next time.

My vote for "Above and Beyond" medal goes to Jimmy.

Back in one piece.  I had pretty steady rain until Cumberland.  North of there it was dry.

Good seeing everyone again.  Thanks to Ken for getting the ball rolling; Mike for being our Uber driver; Shane for leading Friday and providing a source of entertainment the rest of the weekend ;D, and of course a huge thanks to Bill and Kim for their generosity and hospitality throughout the weekend.  :smiley_thumb:


Happy Birthday Travis!

Only pics I have are the ones indelibly etched in my mind, not sure if there are many available as the rides were fast (for me) and furious with little stops.
