    It's located just off of I-85, near SC-18. It is a vacant industrial lot that the locals are using for mud bogging and 4 wheeling. It's really rough from all of the mud play, and wasn't large enough to keep me interested for more than 10 minutes.

    I'm also sure it's not exactly legal, I would advise to ignore this spot.

    If you enjoy riding up to the mountains with your family to choose and cut your tree, one of my neighbors is giving them away for free. There's a variety of sizes, & pretty nice shapes. I didn't see any "Charlie Brown" trees.

    They are on Wards Branch Rd, just off Hwy 321. About 20 minutes West of Boone. Bring a saw and wear boots or shoes with good grip, because it's steep. I got our tree a couple days ago, there were a few hundred (200-400?). Nobody was there, but a sign said "Be careful it's steep, take all you need for friends & family. God bless."

    They aren't bundled, so are bulky. Need a pick-up, or maybe you can wrap it up in a tarp?


    Ho! Ho! Ho! :freaky

    Iron Mtn. was actually in pretty good shape. The horse trails less so.

    Rode all of the seasonal trail between 16 and 21 today. Some excellent traction - some sheet ice(not too much). About 3-4 significant trees down across the trail. BBQ @ Shirley's was good as usual.

    I was in Asheville to pick up some parts on Saturday and remembered to bring my growler. I stopped by the Wedge to get it filled, only to be told that they only sell their "pre-filled" growlers now. They told me that they have a "special machine" to fill the growlers. Has the Wedge become too successful?
    I did notice a new patio area under construction out front.
    I got my growler filled at Asheville Brewing over on Coxe Ave. with a nice IPA :1drink
    I also went by the new Moto Vicious location, but since I was in a car, not on a bike I did not go in.

    Just curious but was this a Wedge labeled growler? Until recently it was illegal to fill a growler unless it was from the same brewery. This has changed recently but I don't know the specifics. Additionally many breweries prefer to prefill the growlers using a counter pressure filler as it makes the growler last much longer. If it was a Wedge growler they should have at least given you credit for returning the original.
