We'll meet in the parking lot right in front of the store right off River Creek Parkway.
Zimmy reminded me there is construction on Mason's Lane, and it may actually be quicker to take the Rt 7 to the Leesburg Bypass to Rt 15. You can decide Saturday.
With about 20 people going, will Crooked Run be able to hold us all? I've never been there, but the photos show only about a dozen seats outside.
I'll do dry run down the road and check out the construction. There is the outdoor area and adjacent courtyard that can hold the group for drinks. 10 yards away there is a lot of outdoor seating for a little restaurant/cafe called Southstreet Under that serves sandwiches beer and brats. Right across the street there is another bar/restaurant, Macdowell Brew Kitchen, with a large outdoor section as well.
There are enough options right there for us all to pick and choose what we want and stay together.
Yeah, Just didn't look like enough seats at Crooked Run. I may go to MacDowell's since he has wine too.
Weather looks good for Saturday. I made some minor adjustments to the map and directions. Updated docs are attached above.
We'll meet in the parking lot in front of the Leesburg Wegmans off of River Creek Parkway at 9:45 Saturday morning.
My cell is 703-309-0983 if anyone gets lost or loses the pack. See you there.

There is an event at Oatlands tomorrow, expect traffic backups on Rt 15 south of Leesburg, typically maybe 5 minutes
The Bluemont fair is also this weekend. According to their website (http://bluemontfair.org/), the fair takes place throughout the village of Bluemont Virginia, along Rt 734, starting at the intersection of Rt 760 and Rt 734 (Snickersville Pike). We will turn west on Foggy Bottom road just prior to this point, but traffic may be bad when we leave the winery toward route 7.
Please add Jim and Julie Brewer
Thanks for the addresses Scott. Will we see you tomorrow?
Thanks for the info Bruce. If traffic looks bad we will take an alternate route to get to route 7 to avoid it.

Sorry to miss out... hope you all you have better weather there then here in the UK!....
Steve, you did a great job!! I did enjoy this run a lot. The stops were great and he winery and restaurant were great.. Again, great job, thank you very much for your effort!!
X2 Steve. My wife and I had a great time.
GOOD JOB, STEVE. THANKS FOR PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER.
WE HAD A GREAT TIME. KINDA EXPENSIVE - - BUT A LOT OF FUN.
Yep.......Had a great time.
Good weather, good venue and a good route.
Stopped at a convenience store on the way home.....exited the highway a bit early onto the shoulder to the store and found about a 4" elevation difference between the edge of the highway and the gravel shoulder. Bottomed out pretty good and I think I bent something. Gravel and dust flew up all over the place.
Now I have a vibration from the front end at about 96.
Don't see anything wrong........but it's there.
