BGR - Gettysburg 2019

Post by Lokiboy » Fri May 31, 2019 7:27 am

The BGR gang started arriving Thursday. Caledonia State Park is very nice and best of all it’s not crowded. However, the likelihood of finding level ground in order to pitch a tent is almost impossible.

Getting ready for two rides today (gang was less than thrilled when I said we’d be heading out around 0830 - :lol: ) and the Gettysburg National Park on Saturday.

Whitney's phone would recurringly reverse the images. Manual editing was then necessary. A few originals slipped through.

It was short-lived. I just lost reverse. I'm hoping the other four gears will hold out during the four hours I need to get home!

Sorry about that. Here's the corrected image.

Great riding on forest roads on Friday and Saturday turned out fantastic with a guided tour of the Gettysburg battlefield

Jessie was our NP tour guide for three hours as she provided a wealth of information about the battle and lots of little known facts.

A good rally, even if I do say so myself

Note: The picture with the red arrow is showing the trees where the Confederate officers told their men to march as they began Pickett’s Charge.

My Garmin inReach satcomm device transmits location pings in 10 minute intervals. Here's the 3,000' view of our battlefield tour day.

The accuracy is impressive. The ending blue dot in the following photo represents the precise location of my parked rig at the Mexican restaurant.

I was able to complete the 3.5 hour ride back to Gordonsville without incident (or reverse), but I do have a leaking valve cover gasket and something on the rear of the transmission is leaking. Messy, messy.

With everything I've got going on, it'll probably be a couple weeks before I can pull out and crack open the transmission to see what's going on. :(

I had a good time this weekend.
Thanks to everyone for coming together for another successful Ural rally.

Thanks to Lokiboy for organizing a great weekend.

The weather was perfect (between the rain and hail). Turnout was impressive. It was good to see some old friends and meet some new ones.

Jessie the tour guide was great. Riding around in a sidecar talking about what she loves seemed to be a good day for her.
