That s not him & that's not a beemer (Hey it is a sidecar & it is silver.....so back off f)

it's also know for hiking boot fitting. And if you've had enough of your old boots

throw em to the shoe tree ( it's probably called something else)



Been there, on a hike from Springer Mt. up to Great Smokey Natl Park.

I'd been on the trail for a few days to get there and when I walked in to the lot a noticed a couple locals downing some Bud Light and eating out of a paper sack in a jeep. The bigest and ugliest of the two staggers, uh I mean wanders over to offer me a beer. About two sips into it he offered me some boiled peanuts. Didn't sound too appetizing but out of courtesy (and Deliverance bing a love story and all) I tried some. Never really got a taste for boiled dirt and peanuts

Swlled my beer and hauled ass on up the trail. Beautiful country though

Takes a pretty good report to get me to spend a couple of evenings wading through 59 pages Nice job...I really enjoyed it. If you ever head North out of Memphis...up into the LBL & Western KY...give me a shout.

Ride safe..........John
