Just For Fun Ride Reports / Re: Fall Colors 2021
« Last post by touringman on Today at 11:26:42 AM »
Hello Folks! I'm very appreciative of all the kind comments, but most appreciative that everyone seemed to really have a good time!That's basically my main goal in coordinating this event for the last 13 to 14 years!. I am sorry to be so long in posting here,but I've been working harder than an old dude should to get my rental properties vacant , spruce them up, and get them sold. The real estate market is the best in my lifetime, and I'm just plain tired of dealing in rental property!!! After I finish this post, I'll be going to a house that I just received a call about, where there's evidently a leak in the ceiling from one of the water lines. I don't mean to b&m, just letting you know where I'm coming from. I've spoken to Chris Shoop, who will be running a Canaan Valley event next year, and he's interested in taking over Fall Colors. If this comes to pass, I will be working with him as long as he wants me. I owe him an apology, as well as the Starreview folks, for whom I'm supposed to write an article about Fall Colors. I will try to catch up on my homework with Chris, as well as the article. If any of you have pictures from this years event, I'd appreciate your sending me some. Please make plans to come back to Fall Colors in '22, and I'll pray for the same weather!! Thank you again, Syd

I spoke with Mike Jr yesterday.
He told me that the family will be having a private service at the funeral home.
The outpouring of sympathy has been very comforting and appreciated.
Nothing else is planned at this time.

The location is great, many fine roads and sites nearby. The ride up to the lodge area reminded me a bit of some places out west, with the trees, streams, ponds, wildlife etc. The lodge was very nice, heard the cabins were good too.

Not sure if I'll make it for this event, have to see what next year brings. If you stay at the lodge I strongly recommend the little cafe in the lobby for breakfast.

Looks to be a really nice location; haven't been before.  Booked a room and looking forward to it!  Tagging a few days onto the end, to head down BRP and spend a bit of time near Robbinsville, NC. ;D

Here is another picture that includes Mike, near the middle with the brown coat and his arm around a young woman (pretty sure that is his daughter in law). I believe this was taken about 15 years ago or more, at a pancake breakfast in the park that Mike put on regularly at that time.

I was floored when I got the news last night, I'm still trying to accept.

I cherish the time I spent with Mike, some of those rides were a real blast. Those 2 trips to Helen GA rally, the MC show dinners and many more good times. You'll be missed but never forgotten.
