June 29th ride to somewhere.....

June 29th Simpson and I have been kicking about the idea of riding to Shenandoah....

http://www.nps.gov/shen/

We have thought about leaving early morning and making it a day trip...
We have thought about leaving after breakfast and making a two day trip out of it
We have thought about just back roading to the mountains for the sake fo doing it....


Open to ideas and additional riders if one is so inclined to join us.

We have little agenda except to get out and ride.

the misses said she wanted to go some day and i told her to get a sitter and we'd be off!!! She rolled her eyes... She hasn't been on the bike with me in quite some time. Kinda of a hike for a first in a long time ride with me i told her. Either way i think I's got a date over at Kristen's that weekend...

Oh i forgot to neg rep for suggesting a cool ride and being helpful what a jerk...

Maybe, maybe not...

Simpson cannot make the 4th. I can.

However, I need to be in RDU on July 5th...

So.............

We can add, adjust, etc....

There's your plan and then there's God's plan.........
Your's doesn't matter.

Yeah yeah....

Needed to be done.

Self imposed unemploy-dom.

Time for a change. Time to get a little more career oriented.

Leaving afternoon of the 30th.
Heading to Skyline Drive with Camping gear.

We will be spending time on skyline and surroundign areas...
