James and I both got to our respective homes safely - safe but very wet.  We (Mike, James, Jim D, Buddy, and I) had a fantastic ride down Route 29 through central Virginia - very little traffic, rolling hills, and sweeping curves that make riding seem like drifting through space and time.  It was foggy and overcast when we left Herndon, but the weather prediction from our guru Jim D was right on the money - full sun by 9 AM.  Unfortunately for Jim, we didn't ride through Charlottesville this time so he could drool over the sidewalk scenery.  Jim D and Buddy left us in Chatham (VA) and the three remaining "amigos" carried on.     

Mike says a "little rain in NC" - I am not sure hiding under a bridge on I-40 for 20 minutes because none of us could see qualifies as "little rain".  We all lived through it.

After dropping off Mike, James and I proceeded to Murphy and ran into quite a bit of rain after getting out of the Nantahala Gorge (thankfully).  Got to the house about 9 PM - very wet in spite of rain gear.  I wanted to ride to the office today, but I didn't have any dry clothes to put on !!

I understand from facebook that Rex Tillerson rode in RT on his own Harley.  I think they let him be in front of the line.

Most important, great fellowship with my SoLR brothers and sisters.  We need to ride together more.  Let's make up some excuses.  I also hope to see y'all down in NC in September for our Benghazi Ride and maybe even for Constitution Week, too.

Just got home safe an hour ago. Dr Dan and James had about 2 hrs left. We parted with Jim D. and James at Chatham VA, a good day, a little rain in NC, but a great weekend

It will be James and I for sure.  Can't speak for Mike McLean and Jim D but they probably will be there, too.
