Awesome RR

Been over your way quite a few times, but always on the slab and almost always in a cage... Great writing and picture taking, thanks for sharing.

Enjoyed reading your thread

I wish there were better places to go daytripping like that here in Central VA. Keep having fun(and posting pics) so us city-dwellers can keep dreaming about the mountains!

Believe it or not, that piece of paper stayed on the DR for a couple of months, thru the Clayton Rally and several other rides during October & November
That's a great story. It forced me to read through your entire thread.



By the way the snake on page six may not be a rattle snake. From the pics it looks to either be a brown water snake (nonvenomous) or a cotton mouth (venomous). from what I can see of the jaw structure it is more than likely the brown water snake. Can't tell for sure without a face shot. Both snakes will mimic rattlers by vibrating their tail against brush, leaves,etc which gives off the sound of a rattle. Sorry I'm kind of a nerd.

Hey Ginger ~ Ya, I dunno what it was, I wasn't gonna aggravate that snake. I'm definitely not a snake wrangler.

I've got more rides to post. Glad you guys like!

Just finished catching up, most excellent!!

I am in the mountains on trails 4-5 days a week and only have met the "bad arse" snakes a couple of times, a bunch of "nice" snakes although a few blacks have been huge and not always happy to share their personal space.... Here are a few photos of a couple common visitors to our area that I met along the trail......., they are

friendly
mostly friendly
give a wide berth.......................

Cheers!

ahh - no problem for you at all! you went to the RDV by yourself... iirc it took you 8 hours too (and 3 days on the way home ).

Have fun!

I . You Tuna ;p



You're so silly. I went thru 2 different flurry storms to get to Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. I have a couple of pics, since I was in a hurry to get here during 12 hours on the bike.


One day, I'll get my rear in gear for leaving at a decent hour to arrive at a decent hour
