finally got a working front break (thanks Hun!) - and I am good to go again...

The weekend started out with making Vegan Bavarian Potato Salad - which is an oxymoron by itself - and all I needed to do is deliver it to some camp-side in the Pisgah Nat. forest. Picked a nice route with a mix of twistiest and gravel....

Downtown Marshall





Sandy Mush



looking towards Willow Creak





top of Willow Creek



Went up 276 to the Parkway, but I didn't take any pics (didn't want the pirates I left behind to catch up with me again )

somewhere around 475B "look mom - no hands"





3 hrs later, I made it! Life is good



Dean picked the perfect camp-side




and after a few adult beverages, very interesting conversations, all of us ended up skinny-dipping at the waterfall.

If you look closely you actually see the waterfall in the background. What a great night and company!!!!



Happy Birthday Julia!!!!

Willow Creek's a hoot of a road, ain't it? Even paved. I hadn't been that way to Canton in a long time til a few weeks ago. That's when I discovered NCDOT had marked off yet another dirt road on their "pave 'em all" list. The community still looks like about 1963 to me, though. Thanks for the pics!

Day 2 was a blast as well!!!

back to the waterfall



followed by Habanero Hash-browns



Went on a nice little loop we found

Fancy - to fast for focus














got stuck on a tree - as usual. I do have a history with trees
Allen was a bit smarter, he just moved the tree



fuel stop (lets just say Allan didn't plan on going off-roading)











the loop was about 1 hrs and well worth it and however didn't come, missed out big time!

Afterwards we split and I took 215 and 209 back (you can't get wrong with 209 - ever!)





Baltimore Branch



Big Pine

I had a nice wet ride most of the way, but, visibility was fine, and the boots stayed dry. Nikwax is the best stuff ever! Thanks for helping make the weekend a big success!

Great pics Cuttle! Fantastic weekend - thanks to Julia and Dean for being great hosts, and Happy Birthday Julia!

Saturday night gettin' nekked at the falls and swimming in the cool water under the blanket of stars, going behind the waterfall... is one of those memories I hope to re-live over and over again...simply amazing!

The food was great...and campfire conversation was, errr...yes, interesting!

Super big to Joseph, day-um, what a woods redemption that was! The man was super-prepared AND, can ride his arse off (even while sporting 50/50's)!

Can't wait to do this again soon! Whoot!

Bustour!!!!

or just another day in the woods


headed over to Hurricane Creek this morning - I even made it on time and arrived first (that's a first )

the usual suspects showed up shortly afterwards:



I didn't get any pics of the rocky parts - to busy riding and trying to catch up with the kids...







obligatory Bus stop:





somebody still believes that protection is for old folks....



and the short bus



creeks were low (but the trail was slick)







I had to get back right afterwards, so I left the kids to play some more in the woods and headed back over the hill - prepping for 209



along Meadow Fork



209





that's it, a quick 100 miles round-trip - still got me in the dog house for going riding instead of helping my hubby

going to host Radioman tomorrow for a few days, maybe I get some more riding in....
