    My college roommate and I would leave Montgomery on Friday afternoon and rip up to Marlinton and spend the weekend at his folks house. Sunday late we would drag our butts back to school. Some beautiful countryside.

    WV has these hybrid paved and gravel roads where there is a single paved lane and gravel strips down both sides of the road. If you are in a cage, you each move your outside wheels to the gravel strip and share the single lane of paved.
    Ingenious. :deal

    This man, with monkey butt :augie, is responsible for the last series of photos. He took a mess of us through the TWVT 2 years ago.

    That is a burl.
    [​IMG]

    A burl results from a tree undergoing some form of stress. It may be caused by an injury, virus or fungus.

    The above and more info can be found on this wikipedia page.

    Thanks for the pictures Jack. After us doing the CDR last year I kinda forgot how much fun the TWVT trip was. I know several life-long friendships came out of that trip.

    Jack, I believe that is Butt Mountain but I'm not sure. It's where I discovered my fork seal was leaking on our TWVT ride. We will be there again two Wednesdays from now.:clap

    Excellent!! :thumb

    I bought a new camera just for the occasion. :rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl
    for the first time in my life, I bought an extended warranty. 2 years parts and labor... Of course, it won't last a day beyond 731 days:lol3:lol3
    Still orders of magnitude better than its predecessors.

    (holy fuck I just spelled predecessors correctly:lol3)

    As I buy replacement cameras, I keep upgrading the optics/lenses.
    My interest in better images has outweighed the indestructo cameras.
    Though... I will have one as my next backup.
    the 810 has 26x optical zoom.
    Next step is a real slr..... yikes..... too pricy for how tough I am on cameras...
