Tour through the Virginia Heartland

So we just had an amazing weekend with some of the best weather ever. upper 60's at night, upper 70's to lower 80's in the days. Light puffy clouds and low humidity.

530.2 miles of about 50 hours away.

We are going on a trip like this in the Fall. Normally I have great disdain for Fall and W*nt*r but the SLK will make Fall nice this year.

Anyway, on to the show...

Here is the link to our trip hitting six vineyards and a micro brew pub / kicking BBQ place!

nice photo/narrative journal of your voyage! I used to live in Virginia... I took quite a few trips via motorcycle through the back roads (Richmond > Williamsburg, VA Beach, Nags Head NC) - those were nice touring routes. Most of the roads out here in the SF Bay Area are more for spirited driving through serpentine routes filled with other motorsport enthusiasts like motorcyclists, and other sports/sporty car groups.
