OK I spent yesterday and today running the roads for the route this year. it looks like it will be some where in the 175 mile range. as usual trail days will keep us out of Damascus. we will run it from the campground and the first gas stop will be about 50 miles out. met with the owner and masks are required and restrooms are closed as the comunistwelth of VA hit him hard. the second stop will again be what was our first gas stop of old and will also be the lunch stop. i have included a trip down the goat path but to do this there will be about 5 miles of the same roads to do this but i think it is worth it


I will need a head count for the BAR B Q after the ride so i can get this set up..

Had planned to make it this year but am having some surgery on the Friday before so I won't be making it. I was ready to bring my tent and camping stuff. Even cranked the B50. Started on the first kick after sitting all winter. You guys have a fun and a safe ride and I hope to see you guys next year. Sorry to hear about the BRI not being available. The only constant in life is change.

He could grab your fenders for you.

Not counting myself out yet, but according to my brother if I want to spend time with my father it needs to be much sooner rather than later. We had planned a big celebration for his 100th in August but..... The other brother will be there the week after the TSMR so my plans are now officially in flux.

I’m sorry to hear about your father. At his age it’s no surprise but still tugs at ya. There will come a time when you won’t have him around.......cherish the time you have.

Before you know it....it’ll be next year.
