I just did dinner with these two at the Homeplace. It sounds like they're having a wonderful time except for the cold weather the last couple of days. Their next stops are in Christiansburg, Fort Chiswell and Damascus.

They made me want to quite my job and go by a bike.:-?

Thanks for the update! Mrs. G was telling me about the forecast for snow in their ride. I would expect that to be pretty but dangerous on skinny tires!

Can't believe that Stumpy got to the Homeplace AGAIN before I got there.

I met them out on the road again this morning as they rode to Catawba. He said they're not going to stop at the Homplace when they ride by it, yeah right.

It was cold out there so they sat in my car for a little bit while they drank the coffee I had brough.

Good luck to them as they head for Oregon.

Stumpknocker told me that he thinks his new nickname might be Bastard since he's been hearing that a lot, like....
"Come on you slow Bastard!"
"Get outta the way you big Bastard!"
"You chicken eating Bastard, no I'm not eating at the Homeplace again!"
:) :) :)
Just telling you what I heard......
