Thumbs up Free Camping, South West Virginia.

I live in Southwest, Va right off Interstate 81, exit 35 and 39. I live only 5 miles from Hwy 16, Marion to Tazwell which lots of riders compare to the Dragon in Tenn.
I have a large back yard with shade and tools to work on a bike. I can offer free camping and use of a shower and kitchen. I have a two person tent if anyone is in need of one while camping.
Hope I can be of help to anyone that is in the area. I am about 2-21/2 hrs from the Dragon in Tenn.

Thanks for the offer. I might be heading down that way this summer. The minister at the church where I grew up now lives in SC, so I might ride down to see him again. (It's been 3 years now) Nice area - SW Virginia. I'd like to explore it a bit more.

Do let me know ahead of time so I can be here. I can show you a few of the roads we have in the area.

Very generous of you. I live just a bit north in Fincastle just off i-81 near Roanoke. I've often played with the idea of building a large tool shed that could double as a room for strommers. We have such good roads here it's a shame not to share them. But alas, money has kept me from doing it. It seems to foil all of my best plans.

I live about 100 miles from you down Interstate 81 between exit 39 and 35. I can see the interstate from my house.
My location would be a good place for bikers to meet from different areas.
I am 5 miles from hwy 16 and 30 miles from shady valley and route 421 which some like better than the dragon.

Hey there icnxpln.
I haven't gotten to ride the strom but a couple times due to my wifes illness with Cancer. I lost her the middle of Nov. Sure not the same now.
I hope to ride some this spring. It's got a new Rusel Day Long seat on it so I am ready to go.
