    I love that there were six people on this trip with six cameras and no pictures of the same thing. :nod

    Been wanting to get this shot for a while. We got it shortly after we broke off from you guys at LD's.

    SLiP had to step off his too, but he did it in a pretty spectacular fashion. We were rolling a little too fast and ran up on a washed out portion of the road. Scary to witness but he bounced right up.

    View from Comer's Rock, looking toward Wytheville I think.:dunno

    We had a decent lunch there. And it was fun to wander around the store.
    I said that I was going to check the bikes and the (I assume owner) says that "this place is guarded by the 2nd amendment."
    I appreciated the sentiment, but nobody with a gun was watching my bike. :lol3:lol3:lol3

    Dave and Kim are good people...
    We have known them for 7 maybe 8 yrs now...
    We remember when they had some real slow days....
    And HB and I had been the only bikes there...

    It sure has changed that's for sure...

    They are really nice folks! And he's a funny guy who is an extraordinary salesman. He tried to sell me and Scott extra stickers with the same zeal as he was trying to sell a guy a 400$ leather jacket. Kept saying "I can set you up!!!:D" They have a great littl business there.

    We arrive at Rick's RDV on Thursday 5/16 in the afternoon.

    Our Friday group ride

    Kevin and I broke off after lunch. He wanted to ride till he got lost and then find our way back. This type of thing raises my anxiety level a bit cause me and lost dont get along. We did obviously made it back, but I swear I heard banjo music in a few of the hollers we rode in.

    Nice pictures SLiP :clap!


    I'm still stapled, they come out on Friday. Hoping I get a schedule of what I can do. Right now it is still a "Not do" list. I stopped the heavy duty pain meds two days after surgery. Those seem to give me more pain then remove it. Advil has been my friend.

    I've got more pictures, will post them up later.

    Distal fibula fracture... 2X and the loose piece got out of alignment with the rest. That's why there was a surgery. It's the only way to align the wayward section.

    Hey AWESOME photos SLiP!!!! Thanks! I just got innyed for BYOB. Just cause H14 can't make it, doesn't mean you can't.:deal Thursday 6/27 to 6/30 in Seneca Rocks.
