An early start on our motorcycle trip to Fancy Gap

Originally planning to leave on our motorcycles bright and early Wednesday morning, true to our spontaneous form we decided to pack up and head out with no dinner at 8:30pm Tuesday evening. Taking the interstate--something we avoid with fervor most times--and even with a stop at a Cracker Barrel for dinner, we made it to Staunton well before midnight to stay the evening. 

The evening ride was most excellent. Both the temperature and humidity had lowered to pleasant levels from the sweltering daytime highs. More concerning, though, was the possibility of rain which we thankfully avoided. And looking at the weather map Tuesday morning, it was a wise choice to have left last night as it is raining at home this morning. 

We'll see how our luck holds today in keeping dry. Though maybe riding through a shower wouldn't be so bad as it would wash off the 20-lbs of bug carcasses left on my motorcycle. :)
