Willie in helicopter school? Dang, I hope he's the Professor Director Emeritus of the school and not a student, he's been flying helicopters since Leonardo Da Vinci invented the things, what's he supposed to learn?

Army, what you gonna do with them?

We have had the privilege of spending time at the Tuscany hilltop town of Vinci, hometown of Leonardo together with it's castle museum that includes working models of his inventions.
Not only did he conceive the idea of the helicopter
http://www.leonardodavincisinventions.com/inventions-for-flight/leonardo-da-vinci-helicopter/
but also the parachute
http://www.da-vinci-inventions.com/parachute.aspx

An interesting visit for those heading to 2016 BSA International
https://goo.gl/maps/9aJNK

And so many other places in that same area - Florence, Fiesole, Lucca, Pisa, San Miniato, Volterra, San Gimignano etc etc plus small fortified hilltop villages eg Montecarlo

PS
Lannis, if Willie was Emeritus he would be retired and thus able to partake of the TSMR


Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures

It's not the destination, it's the journey.

Possibly, but a lot of times "Emeritus" means "I'm still one and still qualified but I don't have to follow any rules because I'm not really getting paid, But I'm Still The Boss!".

He might just be showing those youngsters how it's done ....

I just sent Melissa a note via her website telling her Bob and I will be there again this year. I noticed a link from the site showing the various attractions and activities in the area listed by date. Would you believe, not ONE mention of leaky Brit bikes and the wild men that ride them??

I'll take a wild stab in the dark, or as it is more widely known, a S.W.A.G.
(Sophisticated Wild Ass Guess)
-to assume
the TSMR and crew would fall more solidly under the heading of
*activity*
and not so much under the heading of
*attraction*?



Come to think of it, *activity* might be something of a stretch too!

Mr Mike....by this time each year I would have already ridden the loop at least once, ordered our food for Saturday's dinner on the grounds and made our reservations for Friday night's dinner. (always a month in advance after I got burnt once by not doing so) BUT.....for me, it's not going to happen, I'm out and wish you guys and gals the best. There's a slight chance I might be able to make Wendy's campground before the ride....but I'm starting a new project in the next couple of weeks and I'm going to be tied up 24/7 until it's completed. If I do make the camp ground....it will be on my way home one afternoon after work. The project is for GE at their facilty in Ashe County. (Jefferson/West Jefferson)


I'll be thinking about you all and keep my fingers crossed the weather is the BEST it's ever been.

Take care.....Pokey (aka Gordon in NC) ex TSMR co-host

Maybe someday you can join us on the ride. Some have never seen you on a bike. I'll be there on a single for as long as I can do this.

Hey Mr Mike.... laughing....you need to tell those people they need to get out more!!!!!!

Good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, I'll show up on a bike at the BIBR rally and Mike G's OSMR.

The only other event I'm looking at this year is Brits On The Hill. I really would love to make that one too.

You guys will be in my thoughts this year. 14 years in a row is hard to forget.....all those miles and smiles.

After this year....it'll just be you and Lannis who have attended all of them. bigt

Take care, Pokey (aka Gordon the mother hen)

Look Out! it looks like Sweet M's email is being controlled by aliens or a cruiser type bike group.

I know you will know better than to open any attachments you might get from her.

I hate to hear that...I seem to remember something about it being called off last year but didn't know why.

Brits on the Hill that's gota be the best name for an event..... smile

If you guys can pull it off this year I'll do my best to be there.
