Jean and I are stopped in Chattanooga, TN after a 12 hour run. Took the scenic route south out of WV, "Blue Ridge Parkway", almost all the way to Ashville, NC. before heading for the slab. Very pretty and COOL (like 72 degrees). Saw one large doe.

Plan to make the rest of the trip tomorrow early.

Thanks to all who worked and gave so much to make the Un-Rally VI happen. I rode with some very experienced and thoughtful bikers.

I'm safely back in MD. Thanks to all for organizing such a great event. Thanks to the Va State LEO for only giving me a warning...

Dad is also safely back in GA. He was very happy that he managed to squeeze in a run down Deals Gap on the way home.

Both of us had great rides and enjoyed talking to both familiar and new folks!

Made it in about 8:30 p. m. Went via Appomattox Court House and the Booker T. Washington Memorial to get the stamps, totaling 522 miles. The route from Fayetteville to Appomattox was as good as Unroute 262. Running the twisties with a full load on the bike let me know how well it handles.

This was my first rally; and I had a wonderful time. Thanks to all who invested so much time and energy in getting it together.

Home sweet home. Twelve hours and 594 miles of back roads to big apple. Had a great time, made new friends and learned that camping is NOT for this city boy.

I'm Home!

Decided to take the slab, well that was the plan but I got board after an hour and took to the back roads!
605 miles in 12 hours.

Thanks Mark and Sylva for the great UNorganized event!

I finally got to meet a lot of great people from the board and now have some faces to go with the names!

Got in this evening about 7:00 cst. Ooops, I see that it's after midnight, so make that last evening.

All the UnRallys have been special, and this one measured up to the others in myriad ways. The carefully chosen venue was first rate, and the roads and scenery were spectacular. Many kudos and thanks to Mark, Sylva, Todd, Ken and all who worked so hard to make this event happen.

It goes without saying that seeing old friends is tonic for the soul. This year, I also had the pleasure of seeing some folks whom I haven't seen for 4 or 5 years. Robert First Shirt and Sun-Joo, Tim Beemr69 Cropley and Phil Fasterpill Mares, I'm glad that you all were able to make it this year.

It was also a treat to see so many new faces. I hope you all had a great time, and hope to see you all at future events.
