    The new bridge is in service at Burnt Mills...doesn't have as much charm as the old on though. :dunno

    Leaving there I encountered a group of cruisers with a man down. Paramedics were on the way, I sure hope he's going to be OK. :pope

    Made it up to Del Rio, TN for KLRWorld's annual Tour De Pisgah. Arrived at camp about 11 AM Friday and everybody was out riding, didn't bother setting up camp just unloaded the old DR and geared up and hit the road. :ricky

    Just as I was pulling out 3 dualsports rolled past and I thought they may be part of the group so I chatted them up at the stop sign, turns out they weren't aware of the TDP but called themselves the 'Eastern Tennessee ADVriders' and invited me to ride with them. :thumb

    First up was Bug Branch.....a quick stop at the turn off to turn on their GoPros. :D

    I don't know their screen names but have already friended them on facebook. :lol3

    A quick pause to make sure everybody is OK. :thumb

    [​IMG]















    The KLR & KTM riders were a couple of retired guys that were still gettin' it out in the woods! and the DR rider was about the same age as me.....

    If you find yourself down in 'the maze' between Del Rio and Hartford, TN let me recommend stopping in at Black's Market and Deli. :deal You can get a big ol BBQ sammich there for a mere $2.50

    Ask the nice lady if you can see some of the photos she takes of the area. :clap

    [​IMG]







    I suck at people pics. :lol3













    Would you go out into the woods with this crew? :patch

    [​IMG]


    :deal You can get your chance at the Nottarally in two weeks. :evil

    There must have been 5 or 6 GoPros between the 3 of them...

    [​IMG]















    I can see the benefit as I didn't have any luck with my manual style 'on the fly' shooting in the woods. :bluduh

    Look real close.....there's a KLR down (again) just almost out of sight. It was 'steeper than it looks' and we didn't know if we could either get past or stop without tipping over ourselves. :lol3

    [​IMG]
















    Break time. :jkam

    Check this out....they made a blooper reel too! :rofl

    Saturday it rained...a lot but camp was high and dry. :D

    [​IMG]
















    I loaded the bike up pre-emptively not knowing if there'd be another chance to ride or not...but there was. :clap

    [​IMG]















    Yep...lets get geared up...it's gonna quit any minute. :patch

    [​IMG]

    Oh yeah....only 3 of us stayed and waited it out! :huh
