Good morning from the top of Virginia (and Happy Apple Blossom Festival weekend!)
Sent out much of the the following as an email a few minutes ago to many (who are likely deleting it like crazy
), and thought I'd post here, too.
This is information about and a late invitation to join me on a ride to (or meet me at) Whitesville, Kentucky, for this event on 26-27 May (yes, Memorial Day weekend).
If you have no clue what I am talking about, it's probably best understood by plowing through this slideshow of the 2016 ride and feast:
Mutton Stuff 2016
As some getting this may remember, I had to cancel last year as I got as sick as I can ever recall being just before — no, you haters, not after eating mutton!
That won’t happen this year, though if it does, I’m blaming Europeans. I’ll have just returned from a week-plus visit with some Old Flatulent Army parachuting buddies to airborne battlefields in France, Holland, and Belgium. [As an American infantryman purportedly said after the Battle of Soissons, 27 May 1918: "We've paid off that old fart, Lafayette. What Frog son-of-a-bitch do we owe now?” If he’d only known what his sons might be doing in 20 or so years. Before any French or Francophiles flame me, I like the French! Really.
Anyway, I'll provide routing (all back-road for me), lodging, and other info, e.g., about iconic Moonlite BBQ, to any who might be interested.
You may see a similar notice on a Guzzi website or two.
So, let me know if interested.
Ciao … & chow!
