Yes, I remember it.. I think we need a newer reminder for the tourist to see as they come through.

TC,
Come on man, you gotta share. I won't be in your way until mid to late April.

Looking forward to seeing you this year.
We'll have to sit down and share a Dragon burger.

Are you coming to CRAP the first weekend of May?

Hopefully I'll be there but that is a long way off. I don't plan too far ahead.
Turned 72 today.

Happy birthday, Barnone! Hope to meet you at CRAP. It is perhaps my favorite of all the motorcycle gatherings. Foilheads are a special breed.

I also remember the Deal's Gap Population 6 sign.

I thought the buried bike was a hoot and was sorry to see it go.

General Store. Does this mean the restaurant is gone? I will have to make other plans if it is as I eat lunch there going into the mountains and breakfast there on the way out.

Looks like they cleaned it up and painted it along with the new sign.

Namaste'

Restaurant is still there. As well as some pretty decent BBQ and the like across the street. If you want to venture down the road a bit, you should check out "The Hub" in Robbinsville; it's owned and run by good MC people. Worth the run into town.
