    I know, private property... even hiking that bridge could get you in trouble.

    And only a few pics are with the new camera - I still use the old one for drive by shootings and quick shots.

    could be - I got myself lost on purpose a few times.... :D


    btw, somebody asked me the other day how I manage to go ass-over-teakettle while loosing my seat at the same time. Simple, first - I am not good in "landing" (obviously) :lol3, and second I pulled the seat of (by accident) on the previous "courtesy crash".

    the seat-tabs, or whatever they are called (cut by the previous owner for quick access) :umph

    I want to dedicate the following ride to the makers of Patagonia fleece long johns: "I'm to sexy for my bike" :lol3

    hmm maybe not the best road conditions - yet.... :huh ...but the sun is out :D

    less than a mile up the road

    along Bald Mountain Creek

    my original plan was to take Hwy19 past the big rock slide (that was supposed to be open today), over Spivey Gap and back on Hwy23. Turns out they are still dynamiting the crap out of the rock and the detour was all the way back to Burnsville.... shoot

    explored some side roads in the hope to shortcut over to Jacks Creek - after 1/2 a dozen of this ice sheets I decided to stick to the lower elevation instead... plans are made to be broken! :lol3

    No ice or snow down here, but we do have plenty of snow "birds" (from NC I think) :D
