mountainfest 2012...

the weekend of july 27-29 i was invited to tag along to mountainfest... deciding to go was a last minute because it seemed so much was going on at the time. but i couldn't pass up the chance to spend some time with family.

the ride to mountainfest was fairly uneventful. despite the forecast, i didn't hit any rain. i did, however, get soaked. during one section of road, of course with the most traffic and no way out, it had rained earlier and the road was still wet. i managed to collect enough spray from the other vehicles to make it look like i sat in a car wash!! fortunately after that, the weather cleared up and i dried out before hitting morgantown.

by the time i go there, the others had already pitched their tents, set up camp and rolled out the welcome wagon!! i was treated like a king the whole weekend and it was great.

and packing up to head home...

the ride home was good. weather was decent although it got hotter and more humid as i crossed into each state. i planned to pick up some bbq stops for my smoke chasing in west virginia but i was in too much of a hurry to get home and there weren't any bbq places directly along my route. i did manage to pick two waffle houses though.

in the end, i had a great time but it was good to be home again...
