Soon, I hope. I have parents in town for 3 weeks, but perhaps there'll be something going on late May or after.

Well, Katy's first field trip happened on Saturday. I went out with my friend Bob and he took his DRZ400



Being a not very creative, bike-promiscuous guy, I took Kathy to the same places I took Sue on our first date: The Horse Pasture Rd and The Gorges.

The horse pasture is just a beautiful place with easy roads, perfect to start getting a hang of my orange little girl. It also worked out for Bob as this was his third time going off road.

We went to Jumping Off rock



And since my real girls at home complain that they can't see me in the pics, I took a selfie by the lake



Bob had his minute of fame as well





We then took to the NC Gorges with Bob's confidence built up a bit

We went down to the power lines first



And hung out at the bridge for a little while



And since the falls also need to be documented, here's Katy throwing me over the handlebar when a tiny wheelie over a small log became a hand-off-the-throttle maneuver



Getting a couple more videos on the works. Jonathan, if you're reading this now I understand why your Go Pro videos never made an appearance. It is a lot of work to do video editing.

Looks great

Looks like a nice place, but for that aggressive log! Where exactly is it, did you record your trail/location?

Sounds great. I want to do a little more bike camping in 3 weeks or so. I'll bug you for directions closer to the time, if you don't mind
