I would like to do this but Germantown is a far hike from Winchester VA. Maybe
some time we could do something from the Leesburg area?

It'll take me an hour to get to Germantown from Annapolis. It is a gorgeous weekend for a road trip -poke-

I'll be there! :nanner2:

Hope that doesn't mean any 80-year old's in their Buick Rendezvous' will as a result, also show! :eek: I've seemed to have attracted 'em the past few runs I've been on. Ken - Hopefully your route is obscure enough to befuddle 'em! ;)

C-U there!

Still trying to convince my wife that this will be fun. I can't leave her and the child home alone, so if I show, it'll be in the Cooper S .. not the Exige.

We had a few women travel with us today and I'm not sure but pretty sure they all enjoyed themselves. I know my GF did :D

Is it the spirited driving that she may not like?

Hopefully you both can make the next run and she can decide then...

Sorry I missed it. It was actually my fault. I was on-line late last night and also stayed up watching team USA basketball until the wee hours of the morning. At 7:30am, my wife asked me if we were going to go on the drive. I had slept for maybe 3 hours. Half-conscious and with my head on a cool pillow, I said "Nah -- F it." And then I went back to sleep until around 11am.

I don't think right when I'm half awake. It's always easier to bag it instead of getting out of bed. I was regreting the decision all day.

There is a group drive next Saturday though ... and another one the Saturday after that. So at least I won't have to wait long for the next opportunity.

Looks like you all had fun. :up:

Gina and I hope everyone had a great time on the run today... It was a bit larger group than we normally have for a CTD Run... Everyone did an excellent job and stayed together as a group on all 3 legs of the drive... :clap:

This was a test run of the Civil War Trail Tour that will take place in September... We hope to see you on that tour...

Congrats to those that hung in there and kept up with the regular members of the Crash Test Dummies cause they are definitely a bunch of movers and shakers... We had a GREAT time and it was nice seeing old friends and meeting some ones...

Gina will have her pictures ready to post soon...

Thanks again for allowing us to bring some enjoyment to your day... :wave:
