It's the bridge over the Catawba on I-77. Several months ago I had noticed some dirt tracks leading off the interstate. Not the safest thing to do but I decided to pull of and see where they went. Turns out they are basically dirt roads that criss-cross around the river/area. I did figure out that they come out by come apartments, which is a much better way to get back in there. I sent you both PM's with a map.

Ok, I took a good look at the map you sent. The pics Pieeye posted a few days ago are from the same general area but on the other side of the river. I'll fwd the map to Ken and Jon too.

Matt - I think that spot is what I was thinking of when I said I had seen trails go under the Interstate, so I may not be entirely crazy....

And yes, I did find the airplane! First time I've noticed Google Maps capturing an airplane in flight. I'd say that at that distance from the airport, that plane is doing close to 300 or 350 mph - pretty cool to see it superimposed like that.

Bottom line is that weather permitting, I guess I'm going riding on Sunday, new tires or no new tires...

I JUST NOW (4:30 PM) got back to Charlotte from an out-of-town business trip. I'll be there tonight and I'll be there a little early, but I'll be in the cage myself.

EvanADV and JMforPres are going to make it, so including HarryHammer it looks like at least 6 of us for the 3-year anniversary of this thing. Looking forward to seeing everyone...
