October Anniversary Trip – Abingdon and ‘The Martha’
Having touched the Southwestern part of Virginia on a previous motorcycle trip, and knowing the great roads that lay in store, we chose Abingdon, Virginia as the destination for the first three days of our anniversary trip. Abingdon is a beautifully preserved historic town, first settled in the mid-18th century, and known for outdoor activities, civil war history, food, and culture. It lies in a lovely valley filled with working farms, equestrian facilities, and lavish estates.
October Anniversary Trip to VA – Day 1
My hub and I had planned a Retirement Test Ride (RTR) for September of this year, but that didn’t work out due to changes we encountered with my mother, so we decided to wait until October, when Mom had gotten settled, and take a bike trip to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary.

For Day 2, our plans were to relax around the hotel, then venture to the eastern end of the Island, to Fajardo, for an evening water adventure.
Saturday solo ride
This past Saturday I briefly found the old me: A motorcycle rider who is completely happy to explore the beautiful roads of our area alone, since my riding buddy works on Saturday.
Change…the only constant
Where do I begin?
Oh, how about with the change in the look of my blog? I felt the need for a cleaner, simpler look. And of course, I spent many hours playing with themes and theme options, rather than writing my Retirement Test Ride (RTR) planning posts…more on that in a bit.
Smelling the roses or ???
Set-up: Hub and me, enjoying a late winter ride on one of our favorite curvy local roads.
