I rode up Firetower Rd in search of a.....firetower.































Didn't find a tower but this log cabin overlooking the Farmers Barbeque in the valley below was listed For Sale.

More hints of color along the BRP as it climbs toward the turnoff to Mt Mitchell.































What kind of weather would be found up there?

Seeing Robbie's #7 in that location reminded me of last October on our ride to Rick's cabin.

Pulled the old XR250L out of the shed today to get some fresh gas running through it..


..she seemed a little more anemic than normal.












Have no idea how it could have gotten in there?










Didn't have a camera with me....just the phone.

Speaking of cats...

This cool cat from 'Down Under' showed up in my garage Monday night!















First thing we had to do after the rain cleared out on Tuesday was to get him down to the general store......















....and get him some new duds!!




He actually did buy some heavy 'farm grade' denim as he said they don't even sell it in Oz anymore! He was very pleased with the price as well...

Given the choice, Jock decided that a short local tour followed by another night in a proper bed would suit him just fine. So it became local tour Tuesday....just a hint of the changing season near the battlefield...
