Dog Days Rally and Rella's Gift (2010)
Rode over 250 to Boyer's Station, WV with Dad for the COG Dog Days Rally.
I then led a group of four (Pops, ORexpat and South Side) for a jaunt. We departed about 9:30 or so.
The owner showed up as I was crawling out of his car:uhoh I quickly removed the helmet and began jabbering about the car, how much I liked it, yada yada in hopes he wouldn't be too upset with me. He was very kind and opened up the antique store/old general store for us. It had been in his family since the 1870's. Very cool.
Riding up 66 it got downright dangerous. I had a blast as my well worn 20k tire waxed its way down the slipper pavement. Fun times.
After this, we took the tour, returned to camp, cooked a nice meal around the picnic table, enjoyed company and went to sleep.
This morning, we packed up, had some breakfast, a few goodbyes and rode back home. Pops and ORexpat split off at Head Waters on 250 riding up toward Sugar Grove and Brandywine while I headed on home, nursing my dying battery. It began the weekend at 12V (riding) and by the end was hovering between 7V and 8V. Fortunately, I made it to the garage and will track down an Odyssey battery this week. Well overdue but I made it.
Thanks for coming along! Next weekend will be Newport News for a friend's grad party then Richmond for Greenfly's BBQ and SPOT handoff.
