I'm starting a 5 day trip on the Blue Ridge Parkway. My only instructions - pack light...
Have been reading your thread. You came from VA Beach to Charlottesville, I left Charlottesville and went to VA Beach. Looks like your time on the Blue Ridge has been a good one, next time rolling thru Charlottesville look me up.Another day in the books! We started out with a saddle bag full of shoes and absolutely no agenda and had an absolutely awesome day. We decided to head south out of Charlottesville in hopes of maybe hitting the Dragon. If there is time we will pick up Skyline Drive on the way home.
The Chieftain continues to impress me. Loaded up we are sitting around 1500# but she pulls like a stuck mountain goat and handles amazingly in the corners. It maneuvers much better than a bike of it's size should. At one of the lookouts I plugged my phone in to charge and she started playing tunes from my playlist. The last 30 miles had some Floyd to bring us in for the night.
Old downtown for some burgers and a live bluegrass band and we are all set. More tomorrow...
