Run to Ronnies

Our good buddy Billy Childress had the idea to put on a nice little ride this weekend from Winston-Salem up to Meadows of Dan, VA to a buddy of his named Ronnie who graciously opened up his shop and property for us to camp out and break bread for the weekend. The weather was perfect, super warm for October. This weekend was Trey's birthday so we had the perfect excuse. Rolled out Friday night with Loco, Travis, Josh, and Trey to Wake Forest, met up with Shop Rag and the Gorgeous George and crashed at Billy's out. Greeted by him and his lovely lady with all the provisions we needed for the night. Then rolled out right after Bo Time and hauled ass to Winston where we met up with Will G, the Butcher Chop and NSTC boys and everyone else at Centennial Trading Co. Then left out of there and hit the backroads to the Blue Ridge Parkway and ended up at Ronnies a few hours later. Set up tents, broke the bread and just had a good old time. All good dudes. Everyone we met was super cool. No entry fees or shit to buy. Just a good little run and get together like it should be. Thanks again to Billy, Toby and Ronnie. The Butcher Chop boys for rolling with us and coming through when Josh needed a trailer. Billy especially for giving up his bike so Winslow could ride it home. Next time hopefully Seth, Danny and Marc can make it. Can't wait to do this again.

Shovelfest VIII Sunday Wrap-up

So the run home was hard and fast, 800 miles in a day. I didn't take pictures, but I do have a story with multiple back stories.

I like to take cheap trips on a cash only budget. I have a debit card and more money in the bank, if I really get into a bind. I don't do credit cards at all. Pay at the pump with a debit card on a bike is a bad idea. For every $12 tank they preauthorize and hold $75 of your money. An eight stop day is $600 held when you only spent like $80.  So I have just enough cash to get there and back and eat and drink and buy a round or meal for someone else along the way.

I was trying to make time with only gas stops when I had to. So there I was, needing gas in West Memphis. I knew this was supposed to be a rough town, but I needed gas and there was a huge Pilot so that seemed safe enough. I stopped. Sure enough, someone approached me with an offer. "I need five dollars for gas to get home and I'll give you this new pack of smokes."

Sure as you're born, he has an unopened pack of Newports or something menthol in a green pack. I would have loved to help him, but I really didn't want to pull my wallet out. He wasn't particularly scary. I didn't want cigarettes. I didn't want to show him where my money was either. I have studied a fair amount of marital arts, but still didn't want to kick someone's ass over a hundred bucks in my pocket or get my ass kicked by one or more guys over a hundred bucks either. I especially didn't want to not have any means to get home either. I politely declined the offer to buy the cigarettes. I really wished I could have helped a person in need though. I don't even really care about how a person got to the point in life where they had a nicer vehicle than me and cigarettes but no money for gas. We have all made bad choices for sure.

Anyway, if I had a do over, I would have and should have gone into the gas station and prepaid for 10 or 20 bucks worth of gas for the gentleman. That would have been a lower risk way to help someone. Live and learn.

Pretty good review and photography from Born Free 7 on this guys blog / website. Check it out if you're into motorcycles and hooliganism.

Shovelfest VIII Saturday Part 6

Tennessee sunset.


The line for Jeff's Bar-B-Que.


Marv and others work to get Kelly's bike back to operational.


The thank you's, announcements, and raffle. The camera was not cooperating at all in these lighting conditions.


Shovelfest VIII Friday Part 4

Does Trish know that Betty is on Tim's Bike?




Len is hot.


JC is ready to kick this party.


Full on kraut.


So I kept calling Peaches Trav last year. Now he understands why.


Shovelfest VIII Thursday Part 3

The THINGS' famous fish fry and shrimp boil, too.


"I have never seen a handle of Fireball before! So smooth and warming."








"See the Android is WAAAYYYY better than the iPhone."


"PEACE"


"HANG LOOSE"


"Man, Todd is totally right."


"This Android is WAAAYYYY better than the iPhone."


"I like my flip phone."






At least there's not fire in this year's show.


"Hey, darlin'."


"Hey, hey, darlin'."


It was a close competition, but I think Dogbone won this staring contest.


Shovelfest VIII Friday Part 1

Good Friday Morning!


Sonny Dukes on hand taking pictures. A real photographer with a camera that's not a phone and that actually cost more than a 100 bucks.


"See how nice this Cannon is? Much nicer than what I used back in the day."


Time to wrench.











Shovelfest VIII Friday Part 3

"Yep." "Yep." "Uh-huh."


I finally managed to return Wild Bill's screwdriver that I borrowed from him in Fatteye, IL two years ago. I saw him later and he said he lent it out again before the weekend was out.







These parts bins and stump were just minding their own business and Slabside Mike decided to back over them for no particular reason.


Chows on.






Knucklebucket and me.
