Are we going to Ashland Saturday or having a cookout?

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

No cookout this year. RT was only able to get free yesterday to attend. So this is low key this year. Ashland is possible, very possible.

Ed, Brian, Bill, RT, and a few others....there have been confirmed sightings of the Lake Erie Monster. Which is not a bad thing. Just sayin' :bigt

Trying to buy tickets. Does the 60 dollar camping pass get you in the show or do I buy the admission ticket as well for another 60 bucks?

2 tickets required. Weekend pass and camping pass. You missed the discount deadline which would have saved you 10 bucks each. See you there.

Went to a Bday party for John's nephew yeaterday. Johns back is out of whack. Hopefully today's visit to the back cracker will straighten him out. If not I may be solo with an extra ticket.

Hi guys.
I'm not coming this year, as I am on the way to the International Norton Rally, down in North Carolina.
BUT a guy I know from the Delaware Valley Norton Riders -their president actually- is going to VMD then on to NC for the Rally. Riding his Norton the whole,way from his home in Eastern PA/NJ area.

I told him to pop by and see you guys. His name is Pat. So look for a guy on a Norton!

Cheers, and have FUN.

I left early Sunday morning and rode to Asheville where I visited with my son.

Got home Monday around lunchtime.

Heavy rain in Columbus, but that was about it as far as rain goes.

Great to see everyone.

Thank you Ron and Rich for the hospitality and food; I appreciate it!

See you all next year.

Who other than me is going to Barber?

Great time as usual !! Swap meet was more British then ever and the crowd was ...... crowded shocked But a few cuties made it easier to enjoy. Especially the one on the golf cart with the headband riding around all day Saturday. And Ed's bartending skills certainly help dull the pain of all the money I spent in the swap meet. Got some awesome deals that were hard to pass up. Sorry I passed on the AJS scrambler..... Good thing I wasnt drinking when I saw it though. I heard the guy who bought it was feeling pretty good when he made the deal. I am sure he did alright in the end as the guy seemed to not cherish the ideas of taking it back to Texas.

Shoulda coulda woulda

I am happy and really glad I went.

Through my back out packing up my tent but a bag of frozen peas i picked up at the grocery store in Lexington made the drive very tolerable . Hurting today though.

Thanks Rich and Ron . Great seeing everyone. Got to know Jack Adams a lot better this trip too. Good times :bigt

Photos to follow sometime in the next week as soon as I get to WiFi

Thanks to everyone who hung out at VMD this year. I had a great time, really enjoyed the camaraderie at the compound. We didn't have a large group of bb.com people, but it was a good bunch and a lot of fun. Thanks to all of you, George, Ray, Ron, Jack, Smitty, Ed, Brian, Wade, Rich T., Bri, and probably a few I forgot. Good times.

Wade, good to hear you found a solution for the back. You looked like you were in some serious pain.

Hopefully next year the douchebaggery on the hill will be more entertaining. Burn outs on a board were pretty lame....just sayin'

Well, won't be that long, George, Ed, and myself will be having dinner in New Phila to kick off VMD 2016........
