Let's do it!!

Yuh - let's!!!

So the easiest way down is Rte 7 or whatever route you take to I81. About 125miles down rte 81 to I64 then 30miles alonf to Clifton Forge.

I am planning on a 3.5- 4hr trip so I want to leave my house in Leesburg at 4 or so in the afternoon rather than early am Friday - becasue I want to do the trail scout ride on Friday.

I have emailed the other blokes on the email Bob Steele sent out and two guys emailed back - one of them may leave Frid am though. One of them is up near you - Collin from Rockville :D teehee~! So what time will you get away??? I can wait a while in Leesburg, you can come down rte 15 from up there.

Is Hank going down on Thurs night??????:drink1:

Instead of hitting I-64, you may look into taking Rt.42, starting in Bridgewater, VA, I-81 exit 245 (I think).

It's an extra 20 minute ride....But, you will miss that HUGE hill on I-64 that takes all your gas, and overheats your truck....The hill is about 4-6 miles longs or so....

Rt.42 is defiantly a scenic ride. But, you will get to see parts of VA you would other wise never see. You pass through some pretty cool little towns in the middle of no where. Rt. 42 will dump you out on I-64, one exit away from the Park.

Anyway, FWIW

last min as to if you go or not, or if you go thursday? :)
If "I" go or not. Either way, my truck will be there, at least for an hour. A guy from Tresured Motor Car will be re-mapping the ECU....But, I'm "on call" for my job that weekend. So, it depends on what is going on with my work schedule.

Looks like it is just you and me Collin - I can't leave Thurs until around 430 or so...and will probably take Hanks suggestion just for fun. Let me know if that timing will work for you...ps the nav is probably saying 1hr to this (Leesburg) side - cause mine said 3 hrs 10mins from Leesburg at speed limits.

Collin - that is to early for me...I can't get it together until 4pm. I am leaving work at 330pm and just have to pack the truck.

IDEA: I know you have a Cobra, lets monitor Channel 19, I will call in sometime and see if we are in range :D of each other. I will use Jonesy as my handle.

ROAV on!!!!!!:buttrock:

They are coming - I took about 100!!! There were some sweet rides out on the trail...i did the scenic scout ride, the evening trail ride and the intermediate trail ride! The aggressive one was too much for me (at the moment) - noteably the intermediate trail ride was the one where all the "difficulties" occured with diff's, starter motors and power steering woes!!! Had a great time....picks to come!!

I was there Friday night for about 4-5 hours up at the main lodge on the hill. I left about 11:00PM. I was the one racing around the camp area at 10:50 or so trying to find cabin 23....I must have circled that place 6 times....

Wheres the pics?
