cool pics iatacs19

It was a very interesting drive. For those of you who went on Shimshimhada's Leeds Manor Rd drive last summer, the winery is towards the opposite end of the road. Lots of elevation changes and nice banked curves.

I must say that my 325i had a hard time keeping up with the 335i, the way the N54 just pulls out of the bends and curves. And the sound from iatacs19's car was

Overall a nice break from the city.

We will try to put something similar, together soon.

Spool,
Looks like you made the right choice. That young lady looks very happy. You guys are actually in the "Virgina is for Lovers" handbook!

Where did you go to pick strawberries?

Have you guys tried Barboursville Vineyard yet? It's about 70 miles away and has a great tasting brunch. I can't remember how much it was, but not too expensive if I remember correctly. Excellent setting and a number of good drives could get us there. File that away for future reference.

We went to Holland farms, it's at exit 23 off of 66 west...it's called Delaplane i think...

they have an orchard there too, but it's not in season yet...the scenic is beautiful, we should all go there for a photoshoot...

or we should all take a mini road trip and drive through Skyline drive...beautiful roads..80 something miles, all curves...

Great pics spool...looks like you guys had a great time. Looks like a lot of work too

I hope my wife doesn't see those pics, it'd give her funny ideas

+1 on the mini road trip idea. Definitely do file it under future fun meet ideas.

Also, sstarch1 our designated mini-road trip fun-drives go-to guy will start re-launching day trip ideas threads, as soon as he gets his 335i back. So ideas collected over this weekend will definitely come into play then...

Spool,

Did you pick enough strawberries to hand out to E90Post members?

Those strawberries look big, are they genetically engineered?

Thanks, its a replica AC Schnitzer roof spoiler, got it from an e90post vendor some time back. I like it, adds something to the roof line.

Do join us for one of our next casual GTGs...all are always welcome.
