    That was me. I was riding with a guy on an R6. Stopped to see if you were headed our way but alas you were not. We went out to try to get to 250 but the rain closed us out all day. The last ride up 33 in the wet was totally silly.

    three corners on 33 were treacherous with dirt rivers.

    I waited for a full minute to see if you would turn around but I needed to get home (3 hours from that point) & was cold/wet.

    I had a beautiful, sunny ride back 33 all the way home!

    Sorry we didn't connect~

    I'm not sure where you are, but we are leaving DC around 7am Saturday morning. Forecast is mid 70's high and mid 50's low. Running out west on route 66 our first stop will be the Apple House for breakfast if you would like to join us. Arrival there should be around 8:15am or so and probably be finished and ready to roll out from there by 9am. Let me know if anyone else wants to join.

    Proposed route for us is here:

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FlsgexPSJJ42aYG3xChLP7-XWtY&usp=sharing

    or try this one:

    https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewe...&ll=38.814298889421636,-78.24629770000001&z=9

    Let me know if it works, google maps is a bit confusing. Anyone else in the DC, NoVa area free to join us, and anyone else in the region feel free to join us at any part of our route. We are going counter clockwise if you see the waypoints, and they are only for reference, we probably will be doing a bit more gas/snack/smoke/stretch breaks throughout.

    Nice route, Art. My best option would be to come up I-81 North and join in there. I'll keep you posted. Thanks again, really appreciate it.

    Or maybe I could stay Friday night at my place in Madison County, and join in around Edinburgh/I-81?

    Mind_Surfer,

    Yeah that looks like a good rendezvous point, how long of a ride is that from Madison to Edinburgh for you so we can estimate meeting times?

    Looking at Carmella's Cafe in Edinburg after Apple House. We are taking the valley route along 678 then 675 over per the map. That will take us about an hr so right now that looks like an eta of around 9:30-10am at Edinburg depending on our arrival/depart time at Apple House. I'll coordinate further and get a consensus tonight with the group with our initial 7am depart from D.C. Will be a great day.

    We are on schedule to leave tomorrow from D.C. Shortly after 7am. Might be rendezvous either another group crossing into VA but will still be on schedule for Carmella's Cafe in Edinburg at 10am as I just checked the website and that's when they open haha.
