    I tried those things, to no avail. Maybe my cards need reformatting or my gallery has gotten too big. Using two different cameras probably doesn't help either.

    Using two different cameras in the same gallery it would be best to select 'date taken' then it's just a matter of if your cameras have the time and date set correctly or not. :norton

    It doesn't, I'm just going up beforehand to give Will some moral support and make sure he's properly armed. :norton

    It's been over a month, guess I really am a slacker. :lol3


    Took a little trip to Bryson City this past weekend, barely escaped wrecking before I got out of the county...

    Finally had a long enough light to get a good pic of this place, right in the middle of Kernersville.

    What better place to stop for gas?

    Neat rock sitting out in the road on US 221. Been several years since I was through there, below Linville.

    Epic traffic jam due to construction in Burnsville. How long are they going to drag that frikken job out, anyway?

    Dyno was in the area from Michigan so we got together for a day of riding and looking.

    Some of the deck boards were a little flimsy, we decided not to cross.

    More back road action (if your idea of action is creeping around in the gravel on T-30's).

    This power line runs over Wesser Bald.

    The following were taken between Bryson City and Franklin. Those people on the Tail of the Dragon don't know what they're missing (let's keep it that way).

    These two are FR 711 off of Wayah Rd. Nothing but the best for us. :lol3

    The last three miles were new pavement and baby-butt smooth; zero traffic.

    After we got done with the loop down to Franklin and back, we rode over to the Dragon to see what was going on. I can attest to the fact that many lives were saved that day.
