Yes, I came up 164 today, went east on 85 almost to 127 and doubled back on 85 and headed towards Granville.
Beautiful area and excellent roads.

I was tag hunting but came up short.

Cool. You were on a part of 85 I haven't been on since I've stayed on 85 to/from the Defeated Creek area and Carthage.

It's a fun ride.

I met maybe two cars and one logging truck going the other way and had all the twisty's to myself. The pavement is good too, just a couple of spots where it shifted on the mountain.
Ride it, make a loop, go to the end of 85 and up 127 to Jamestown and back west on 52.
Or double back like I did

About two more weeks and the leafs ought to be perfect

I might be a bit early, but I'm headed to eastern TN / western NC this weekend. Made the run in October for the past two years - don't want to quit now. My tires have mileage for this run, and maybe not much more.

You gotta eat at the Shady Maple Smorgasbord if you go to Blue Ball. Listed as being in East Earl but I couldn't tell the difference.
