    Yogaville? Boy can I tell you stories about Yogaville.
    The time my mother saw the meditators and shouted " they look real don't they"
    The time my step father tried to tip one of the facilitators and got stared down.
    Actually a neat place. The Sherando Rally grounds are on a National Park. They'll charge you for just a look. They Club uses the overflow area on the top of the mountain. It's beautiful, quite and a low key Rally. we all love it..

    Obviously Sherando and the mountains will provide better riding, but there are a couple of nuggets near Yogaville. This was taken on Manteo Road (Rt 655) less than two mlies east of Yogaville.

    It's supposed to storm on Saturday - I was wondering: route 655 and 604 appear to be non-paved from my satellite images. Are they gravel roads, or am I going to be bogged down in the mud? I do have quite a bit of experience on gravel roads, but deep mud might be a turn-off, to be sure.

    604 is paved. The speed varies from 45-55. 655 is paved and the limit is probably about 45. If you are interested, 741 snakes downhill along the James River, but is unpaved and river views may be so-so with leaves out.

    Yes, the downhill section heading toward the river. That is about as bad as any road in that area gets.

    Ended up driving to Sherando in the cage. I told them I was interested in seeing the site for the MC rally - they let us in for free. We offered to pay, but they wouldn't accept. Though it's not possible for us to attend this year, we look forward to next year.
