Looks like someone is riding an illegal bike. No functioning headlight is is against the law.

Who said the headlight didn't work? It works... it's only about 1 candlepower though.

I know a guy in your area that can set you up with some Luminous flux.

Day 2 - Opelika to Cheaha...

A little bit of pavement...





A couple of bridges along the way...









The barn of happy endings???



Getting close to Cheaha...









Yup, it was a little dusty out there...











As we got closer to Cheaha, a few of us broke away from the group to check out Horsestomp. We tried to get there but several of the roads we followed on the GPS were closed. It was getting late so we started to head back to Cheaha. We stopped at this place along the way...







Neat place. It was the "Walmart" of the no stoplight town. It had everything including guns. Chit, the owner will even demo a black powder gun for you...



On the road towards Cheaha...





Camp Chigger Cheaha...





My chigger magnet setup...



Kelly Duke rockin the beer & pizza!



Buzz's chigger magnet setup...



BTW, no charge @ Cheaha for hammock camping according to the ranger! complimentary chiggers

PK's chigger magnet setup...



If you haven't guessed by now, yea, there was some d00d on the other side of the bushes selling chiggers by the palletload.
