I will clear out the garage and we should be able to get most of the scoots/bikes in the garage each night. What's unusual about this offer is you will forfeit some privacy, think slumber party. One room has 4 bunk beds, so if 4 of you are in there and 2 snore, I can't help you. Capice? What you lose in privacy you gain in hanging out with 10 to 20 like minded folks to discuss the finer attributes of what we do. Have all the beverages you want and no worries on getting back to a hotel.

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.

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

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

18 miles away there's more mainstream hotels off the Thornburg exit on 95.

Best Western Plus Thornburg Inn & Suites
bestwestern.com (540) 805-5023

Quality Inn
choicehotels.com (540) 582-1097

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Thornburg-S. Fredericksburg
ihg.com (540) 604-9690

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. Here.

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]https://www.nps.gov/anti/index.htm

Harper's ferry - A must see if you haven't visited before with loads of history and a scenic town nestled on the Potomac river.
https://www.nps.gov/hafe/index.htm]https://www.nps.gov/hafe/index.htm

Thomas Jefferson's home Montticello - A must see!
https://www.monticello.org/

Tank Museum - 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/Williamsburg - fort and museum is cool to check out as well. Ground zero for America!
https://www.visitwilliamsburg.com/

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

Callie Opes -10 minutes away.
http://callieopiesorchard.com/menu/

The Virginia Museum of Transportation - They are supposed to have a decent train museum.
http://www.vmt.org/collections/rail/steam-locomotives/steam-locomotive-norfolk-and-western-class-j-611/

Cooter's Place - If you're a Dukes of Hazard fan nestles next to Luray Caverns.
https://cootersplace.com/

BRPW and Skyline Drive need no introduction.

Ask away should you need any other information and we hope to see you there!

I will not be bringing vodka.
Maybe some very good coffee and some cigars but vodka would be bad.

Ooops, if I post in a thread that generally means I'm in.  Should have made that more clear.  Sorry

As far as the Mrs...the rest of her year is really up in the air.  She's going in for surgery this morning to fix (hopefully) her neck issues.  So no bikes for at least a year.  Hopefully she'll be able to drive a car by June.  That would be the only thing that could throw a wrench in my plans.

fingers crossed that this gets her all fixed up.....now off to the hospital!

Side topic: yikes, what's she having done? If it's of any comfort, I had a fusion in my neck that went pretty well. Titanium cage and cadaver bone to fill the space. I was able to spend time out of the brace after 3 weeks, drove myself to a follow up appointment at 6 weeks, and put a motorcycle helmet on at like 3 months (and that first time was scary as hell! :D ). The only real limits I have at the moment are I can't tilt my head up for any expended period of time, nor go to full lock left or right for any amount of time. Any turn in a car more than 90*, I have to kind of turn my whole upper body to look back, but otherwise, I'm way better off than before the surgery.

I was thinking one couple up in the loft will have privacy, second couple in the reloading room with complete privacy and if we get a third couple I have some other ideas. I know my wife wouldn't want to go to a sausage fest slumber party. I can make this work. Maybe sanction one restroom for the gals only and the other for the peeps with kickstands? Just a thought...

Cannons are great for relieving tension.    Just aim for the stress points.

Are we really meeting in VA after all the tensions that have been happening there?

Some people made their feelings known on upcoming legislation. That's what happened. Predictions said terrible things were coming however that was incorrect. We could always meet up in Baltimore.  8)

LOL   Eric does not need a parade led by cars with flashing lights around his dock.   

On the other hand, if it's the cannon I'm thinking of, we could still probably hear the echos if someone fired it 4 miles west.

Not anymore. I'm the first male in my family for 5 generations not to be a Baltimore City Cop. Dad told me not to.

You got your screening kits yet?  Will we be swabbed as we approach your house?  Should attendees bring their own toilet paper since there will be a shortage?  Or are you just going to cancel out of an abundance of caution? :P

We're going to give up our lodging slots, but still attend. Looks like Liz's son is going to come along as her pillion, and we don't need to eat up that many beds. We'll hit the motel. Thanks, though. Looking forward to for-real vacation time.

Nope! I ride a scooter so I tend to live on the edge!  :naughty:

Understood, I'm sure we can accommodate if you choose to stay. bring an air mattress and we'll stuff him under the pool table. 
Show up on time, do your best and don't grumble about the outcome.
