finally getting around to day 3...

So for day three we had no plan. We figured that after days 1 and 2, we'd have a pretty good idea for where we might want to go explore, or maybe we'd be ready to just give up this crazy motorcycling thing.. haha... naahhh

So Matt and Trevor thought it would be fun to ride back over Walker mountain the other direction. So we figured out where that "road" comes out by the lookout tower - turns out it's not too far from camp!

My kickstand was still having trouble staying up so we had it zip tied up - no problem.



Good representation of Walker Mountain "road"


Again we didn't take too many pics... but we had a great time going back up and over Walker mountain the other direction. Instead of climbing up over the big granite slabs we were riding down them - a totally different experience. From there we continued South into Wytheville - hitting the small section of the BRT that we missed on Friday's ride.

We had seen this water tower from afar a few times - at first glance I had thought it was a hot air balloon. We stopped for a break and a close up look.



Once back at camp it was time to clean up and pack up... and we had quite a bit of stuff. Bye bye campsite - you were good to us. Thankful that our neighbors were deaf


Loading up the not-so-clean Hondas after a great 3 days of riding.


Thanks for following along!

Nice video and commentary! What mic did you use? Crystal clear.

I didn't have the chance to watch the whole thing, but I spent more time watching than I should have! I am looking to do the Iron Mtn part soon...looks rough!

Thanks for the report.

Thanks! It's just a basic, run of the mill lavalier mic.

Great videos. In the Day 2 video, the road (if you want to call it a road) from the 3:34 point to the 26:27 point is called Walker Mountain Rd (VA Forestry road 206). My son and I manuevered thru it yesterday in his Jeep Wrangler (now very well scratched and mud covered - which he loves) in the opposite direction that you guys went. I think the direction we went is easier because it was mostly downhill for us, which made traversing the large rocks a much simpler task. It is also much more passable and rider friendly now because I took a chainsaw and some limb cutters along for the ride and cut away some fallen branches/trees so that it is as "bushwacky" as it was before. Oh, by the way...the large puddle you guys went around is not as bad as it looks, we drove thru it and it was about 12-16 inches deep at most.Thanks for sharing the video, now I can show my wife how crazy/sketchy that road is.

Awesome! I bet that would be a lot of fun in a jeep, although like you said, lots of new scratches. Jeeps do look good with scratches though hehe.
