Yard work is over rated. Very nice pics. Missing the colors this year.

Saturday.... not a huge amount of really old school bikes this year. Actually just old beemers and Knybanjos boat:



My riding buddy for the day: Norton73 - thank you for tagging along!





Bald River Falls







opps - construction on 420... luckily it was Saturday









nice thing about Andy/Norton73 is: he's just as a nut as me when it comes to pics











and back at the Old School again

now you tell me... but I would have to had one like at a marathon race - I was on a mission!



Sunday

chilly morning



Boojum's not so old school play bike



Waiting for it to warm up a bit.. and watch "new school" GP races. What a clusterfuck this was (I am kind off a GP nerd and watch every single race/class)



Same waterfall as the day before







oops!





no, I did not crash. I fell victim to SLS (short leg syndrom). I tried to back up a bit to turn around... and my foot slipped.

Maybe I should have worn my off-road boots after all. My old street boots just don't cut it in gravel (but they are very comfy and I didn't want to carry extra shoes - my own fauls)



so, here I am in the middle of the woods, alone, fully loaded bike and tank full of gas. But it turns out that the handlebar lift method still works w/o unloading.... good to know

a few smacks on the bar, and off we go again



crossing the Skyway









81 has a few nice camp-spots on the bottom end



obligatory lunch pic



lunch guest





unfortunately all good things come to an end... (had to make some time)



back on the good stuff: 209





Baltimore Branch











that's it

Wow, that barn has really taken a beating over the past 6 years!

I stopped for a shot of it heading to the RDV in '07




I need some picture taking lessons from you!

I don't know how you guys and gals take pics on the fly. Silke was flying down dirt roads with one hand on the bars and taking pics with the other while I was stuggling with both hands on the bars
