Grizzlyman,

I need to make it to a Wedgeday and come and meet you guys and start riding with you.

I made this video of my Dad and I's ride on the 18th in Madison County.



I don't know the names of the roads but I can look them up. We turned off of 25 just before you head down the switchbacks before you take a left into Hot Springs. Took that over towards the Laurel River and came out under 26 in Mars Hill.

Enjoy the video

Awesome video. I've been looking at GoPro cameras. I am out of town on business most weeks and have yet to meet the other inmates on Wedgeday. I hope to in a few weeks.

400psi took me on one awesome this past Saturday. We headed out around 9:30 a.m. to a cool brisk morning. We started from the West Asheville area and soon found our way to the BRP. I saw snow in several areas on the BRP. The weather and views were spectacular! We soon found our way to a dirt/leaf covered road with more great views and I saw a black bear as a added bonus. I'm not sure of the road names we traveled but we were mostly in Jackson and Heywood counties. We saw several lakes and drove across a big hydro dam. We also saw several other dams along the way. 400psi may be able to share the GPS track of our trip and have some photos to share. I did not take many pics on this ride; we kept moving at a good pace.

We went on an awesome ride to Hurricane Creek 12/02/11! The temperature was 28F Friday morning as I pulled the KTM out of the garage. Having good cold weather gear, the cool morning temps were not a problem; well, for me anyway. We started in Candler, NC fueling up and headed to Leicester via Hookers Gap and South Turkey Creek. We then took Hwy 63 to Trust, NC for a splash of fuel, then we were on our way to Hurricane Creek. We rode Hurricane down and back, topped off our fuel in Hot Springs and were on our way to Marshall, NC. We rode back to Asheville following the French Broad River and somehow found our journey ending at the Wedge. What a way to finish the day! Total trip mileage was around 135 miles.

Yes, coffee was a good thing to have this cold morning



Fueling up in Trust. What a cool place!




Before going down Hurricane Creek.



Marshall, NC

I did not get any pics while we were in Hurricane but Dave did. Maybe he will forward me the pics and I will get them posted. Somehow we all managed to have matching riding gear too.
