We looped around into Laurel Springs from the back way.....just to test the condition of the dirt.



...tried to catch a bird in that pic but it looks kinda funny.





guitarhack said the condition of the dirt was a bit slimy on the road so he decided to take a sample out of somebody's front yard!



He was OK..no harm, no foul.....get this, he rode up from Georgia yesterday and camped at Stone Mtn last night then rode back to Georgia this afternoon after hanging out with us for a bit!








The backyard @ Freebornes, going to be home to the RDV again in 2012!











6 bikes lined up and ready to go!

I stopped and took pics of this place Spring while scouting amidst snow flurries.

No snow today....and no stopping either!











Nothing but bright sunshine!











...more poorly framed 'on the fly' shots....









Seen quite a lot of this today.

It was a successful scouting run! Got to check out a few new roads that I wasn't sure about and they turned out to be just fine. Also had a lunch at a cafe that I'm considering using as a stop on one of my RDV rides and seem to have survived.


After lunch we split off to all head back our own separate ways and I did a little more scouting on my way towards home.











Don't ride with me if you hate this kind of stooopid scenery.





















One last look back towards the Blue Ridge from atop a foothill in the Brushys, just as the sun was beginning to set.....





That's all Cuttle.

Maybe I'll dig a thumper out of the shed tomorrow and see if I can get it stuck out on a powerline somewhere.

Sweet pics Kevin. I kept seeing you pull out your camera while blazing down the dirt roads. You have that art mastered!

Thanks guys! I had a great time yesterday and hope we can go for another ride like that soon!

I didn't get any good 'people pics' but should have at least tried to introduce y'all by screen name!

Let's see if I can get it straight..... SidewinderX, kickstand72, guitarhack, Jake Mountain, ducmays
