  • My Mini Vacation during Herdstock

    While I would have loved to have joined you fine folks at Herdstock I had a prior commitment that same week. The V Twin Cruisers riding club that I am a member of has a National Rendezvous the 2nd week of July every year and with 28 chapters this was a big event. Unfortunately it was the same week as Herdstock.

    This year the chapter 40 miles north of me in Va Beach Virginia hosted it and my chapter agreed to help . I was on the motel accommodations, rides and entertainment committee. My band played Saturday night and I also kept them in music all week thru the PA. That part was easy as was planning rides for the days the members were in town,
    The hard part was finding a motel that would accommodate us and let us have a good time on the property. I looked in a 100 mile radius and found a couple that would work but things didn't work out . One even was OK with us coming but then got cold feet and backed out. We ended up in a Holiday Inn 40 miles south of me that had 66 rooms and a suite. They told us if we booked all the rooms we were good to go with adult beverages, a band and music all week, blocking off the parking lot so we could be private all week and also having a caterer come in Saturday to feed the group. We booked every room for 4 nights.
    To sum it all up, the hotel staff enjoyed us being there, the member guest loved the accommodations and riding around my area for 4 days and I had a ball.

    Here are a few pictures that were taken by some of my V Twin brothers and sisters

              If my memory serves me correct, we had 130 registered and some day trippers from the local chapters

                              Great pics looks like a great time was had by all.

                              It is too bad the other places didn't want that "biker trash" at their establishments but the place you stayed at enjoyed their lack of business savvy.
