Well folks, hate you missed it! We're in Charleston, SC for my US Navy submarine reunion. Bus tour today including Patriot's Point with catered lunch in the CPO Mess on the USS Yorktown, the aircraft carrier. A few pics later.

Not too late to ride over for lunch in Savannah, GA tomorrow . Time and place TBD. Planning on stopping in to the Pulaski Nat'l Monument and maybe the light house/museum at Tybee Island.

Yep, rode down to Savannah yesterday. Started at Pulaski National Monument, then to Tybee Island lighthouse, then back to Savannah for eats at Paula Deen & Sons restaurant, then back to Charleston. Hot humid day but good coastal riding.

Thanks, it was fun. Got some pics, will be posting up in a few days. Wasn't an epic trip, about 720 miles in all, lots of leisurely coastal straight-N-flat.

Well, hopefully the great food and company made up for the lack of side tread wearage.

Indeed it did! I know some folks poopoo the coastal palins of the Carolinas and Georgia but I think it can be quite beautiful. So here we go: Didn't snap any pics Wednesday, we just rode down. Ken the HD Guy rode 160 miles to my house from Lynchburg, VA then we both rode another 240 or so to Charleston, SC. No interstates except right at the end to cross the Cooper River into the city proper. Folks in attendance included the spectrum from when the USS James Madison SSBN 627 was commissioned in the early '60s until she was scrapped in the early '90s. My time was Feb 19, 1980-Jan 26, 1984.

Thursday touristy stuff with the reunion group: Patriot's Point and the Hunley. Ken the HD Guy is a Vietnam vet, Army.
