Well I did indeed run to Staunton. Great weekend trip. The routes from my home to Staunton are just wonderful!
Staunton looks good. Flowers blooming and spring is springing for sure. It was 85 Degrees.

I did start to see beginnings of the Pipeline Project. They have a huge pipe depot just south of Seneca Rocks.

This project is taking LOTS of Motel rooms all summer in Staunton. So BOOK THOSE ROOMS ASAP, you can always cancel if you can't make it.

Nice looking lunch stop suggestion.
They even have an onsite campground.

This room block will be let go soon...………..

If you're coming you need to get your room booked ASAP.

I think we have 17 people signed up at this point.

Well, Clem, it looks like excessive self-flagellation has clouded your judgment.

FYI, my moniker, "Boosthund" (if that's the one you were referencing), is part of a phrase playfully describing man's best friend, taken from James Joyce's "Finnegan's Wake."

I hope that with this information you can give your hand, and its love object, some much needed rest.

Best regards,
Boosthund.

Anyone else need a room for this event you better call ASAP...………….

Rooms are tight this year in Staunton due to a pipeline project.

I don't have any Route Sheets to hand out for this event...……..

I did provide some links to maps earlier in this post.

Do any of you that are coming have routes to share? Can you post here or bring some printed copies?

I'll be getting in Thursday evening.............

I know of at least 5 also coming in Thursday, including me.  Sorry I don't have any day routes from the hotel.  I do have routes coming into and leaving Staunton from home.

The pipeline project has been delayed, so you shouldn’t have that to contend with.

Looks like 20 registered...……….

I think this event should be drawing twice this many attendees!
Am I missing something that we're not getting a better turnout?
Should we change something next year?

Let’s review the past experiences to see what can be improved.
-have an awesome ride down on great roads to Stuunton with good friends.
-eat a lot of good local food and drink some really good local beer.
-ride the next day one more awesome roads if that’s possible.
-hang out in the parking lot/lobby and talk about a bunch of stuff with old and new friends
-repeat the last three items
-repeat the last four items.
-ride home on new and great roads with friends.

What needs improvement?

Dog Days weekend in Staunton, Va. is two weeks out.

http://www.cog-online.org/clubportal/EventDisplayNew.cfm

I know of a couple guys looking for rooms mates to share the cost. Yell out if you're interested.

Looks like we'll have a nice crowd, with 20 registered and I'm sure some stragglers...…………

See you in Staunton!

Getting ready to depart... might sound early but am riding up to DC (for work) and will head down to Dog Days from DC on Friday afternoon (perhaps riding with Boosthund). 

Would say "see you in Staunton" but of course until we meet up with Roger 123 and Roger's Close Personal Buddy I won't have any big purple lines to follow... Could end up anywhere!

High’s is under new management / owners.
Sadly, is just not the same.
Been eating there for 15 years and for the
first time I was disappointed.
I hope they improve.
In the meantime, I’ll be checking out
the Gateway.
