Hungry Mother Weekend [VA] Sep 21-24
« on: July 24, 2017, 04:50:56 pm »

Hungry Mother Weekend [VA] 

Interested in the "Back of The Dragon" and other great SWVA riding?  We are heading back to Hungry Mother State Park in September -- won't want to miss this!

We'll set up camp at Hungary Mother SP. Cabins are available (2 night minimum) as are tent sites and there is also a restaurant on site now. Hotels are available in nearby Marion as are numerous eateries. Reserved my cabin at Hungary Mother and recommend early reservations if you want a cabin (I did mine LAST fall). Thursday and Sunday will be travel days and Clyde will put together rides for Friday and Saturday. Plans are to explore the Grayson Highlands area of the state. http://www.stateparks.com/hungry_mother.html

I booked a cabin..............

These aren't like KOA kabins. They are more like Apartments! Two bedrooms, full kitchen, linens on the beds............

Nice.

I've filled the cabin so if you want one you need to book your own

Ewwwwwwww

Jay,
travel the extra half hor, and stay at the Econo Lodge in Marion, I've staid there a dozen times, nice people, good price, and Sonic is a stones throw from there.. so is the beverage store.. and good restaurants...
Momma and I easily made it to Hungry Mother, from our house, in time to pick up some beverage, dinner, and stay at a fellow ADV riders house right in the park, at the end of the road that runs along the lake... awesome place...HUGE house, made from a remodeled barn, he turned the stone grain silo into bedrooms and bathrooms.. extremely gorgeous.

Wytheville gives me the heebie geebies... :-\ :-\ :-\
Dona and I checked into, and out of 2 places within minutes... one had bed bugs, the other was a pee pee rug... and the bed looked like the maid just got made...
Third one, iirc Motel 6, up on the hill,nwas ok, untill I noticed an open jar of vasoline on the floor when I went to plug my computer in.. called desk,, maid fame up, and gave us a nice clean fresh room... sans lubricants....
Lended a new meaning for "Tom Bodet leaving the light on for ya"

Looking at the list of attendee's shows that this is an Old Timers event..................
they'll be a couple low cog numbers in attendance for sure!

And it doesn't look like there will be many, if any C10's or C14's in the parking lot.

Still time to book those rooms!

I am seriously looking at this one.  I have ridden the back of the dragon 5 times, and I think Sept would be a great time to do ti.

Hell, I am going to sign up for it, great to be partially retired   ;D  I work 3 days a week to pay for my motorcycle habit, and I can choose the days I want to work   :great:

I am going to sign up now, two weeks after RWTW, I will need a break   :)

Yes, if you circle through the process a second time, and go to the Northeast calendar page, it will let you see the list of attendees.
I've learned this the hard way.

Too much going on around the house right now.

Jay, I never did PM the guy you sent me the name for a cabin.

Looking forward to comparing with Butler maps (which I think Paul has).

Looking for rides?  Check here:  https://tinyurl.com/COG-Hungry-Mother

Clyde was nice enough to layout two routes, and Mike made them into GPS routes -- you can find all that in the Dropbox folder above.

Gonna be a great ride -- I GUARANTEE good weather .... well .. Ok ... I GUARANTEE no HURRICANES!!
