Touring SE VA

Post by Lokiboy » Sun Aug 04, 2019 5:05 pm

The Virginia riders gathered today to welcome our newest member, Karl “KKarl528” and his wife Melissa, with their 2019 GU along with Cecil & Brigitte, Tim “DneprTim” & Althea, Mike “Festis” & Beth and yours truly.

Met for a wonderful lunch at Costa Del Sol in Windsor, VA. From there Festis took us on a crisscross road trip around SE VA on backroads and gravel for an enjoyable ride. 8)

A cool place we visited was Garner Gliderport. The folks there were so friendly and offered rides, if only time had allowed. :wink:

Truly a great day and the torrential downpour Cecil and I got caught in w@$#ed all the dust off the bike and us. Can’t wait for the next gathering.

Nice pictures. I had the opportunity to go glider flying several times when I was in the Civil Air Patrol in my youth. Would love to go again!

Is it quiet and peaceful? I'll bet it's quiet and peaceful.
