iatacs19 & kl2dc's excellent adventure into VA wine country

iatacs19 (Juan) and I met up for a last minute and impromptu vineyard tour.

We ended up at the Oasis Winery in Hume, VA.

This trip also serves as recon for future GTG ideas and venues.

Anyways, the pics.....

Here is iDrive with RTTI at work. Notice that it picked up the traffic jam on i66 and it tells you WHY it's slow...

Donny, I have to say, your car is looking f-ing sweet these days.

A good day for this sort of thing. Next time, let others know you're going. Not that I could have gone today. But still, if I could have joined you, I'd be bummed I missed out.

The whole thing was a last minute "hey you wanna go?" kind of thing. It was my first time going to something like this, but I must say it was really GOOD. It's such a difference to travel 50miles from DC Metro, it's a different world out there.

PS: Donny check out your license plate, do you like how I made it look like it's a blank plate?

Apologies to all...it was very spur of the moment thing, you can see how it all started from the now infamous 7,000 post whore thread

Anyways, we noted down some interesting venues for future DC metro get togethers, we hoped the pictures will come in handy the next time we try to set something up

also, BK - thanks for the compliments
