Wrugboy: Nickname for a Long Distance Rider by the name of Rob Wilensky. I met rob quite a few years ago at a RTE that he called in PA. It was at the Forksville General Store and became an annual event. Rob also attended the Schoolhouse RTE in Downsville NY each year. We also met up in 2012 in VT at Barb’s RTE when she was running a Marathon. And of course, JAX each year for the IBA meet-up.
Other than JAX, I last saw Rob in Oct 2014. I was at the Forkesville in June and Rob attended Schoolhouse in Oct. In 2015, there was not a Forkesville event and Rob was not able to attend Schoolhouse.
I got a call from Rob on March 5th that he was in SC and would be passing through Savannah shortly and asking to meet for dinner. (He was on his way to Florida) I agreed and when he got closer, I hopped on the GoldWing and met Rob at Longhorn Steakhouse in Pooler. We had a nice dinner and a great visit talking about old times. Even though I would see Rob in Jax next week, it was great to have some 1 on 1 talk time!
Here are a few older pictures from Forkesville and Schoolhouse.
That is one of the nice things about being on this I-95 corridor, so many of my Northern friends are able to stop by on their way south!
