    It's Route 8 and fun ride. I've ridden it more times than I can count on my way for a lunch stop at Tuggle's Gap. That whole area has great roads for scooter trash like us!

    Nice RR

    I hit the BRP July 4th. Started from Asheville and made it to I77. It was a terrible day, lots of rain and fog(cloud ) so maybe in a couple of years I'll try it again.

    Looking forward to reading more of your trip.

    Cheers

    Great RR Bob...those poles that you hang your jacket on are for a bivouac...to hang food out of the reach of foraging bears... well at least thats what i think they're for...:deal

    Yeah after I posted that I saw they're not as tall as they should be to keep the bears away...still I like your ingenuity ;)

    Nice picture of an Elk.
    Glad he didn't eat your lunch! Or drink your coffee.
    Could you imagine one of them on caffeine?

    The views along the Appalachians are very nice.
    They did a great job laying that road out and fortunately no one built a city around there to spoil the beauty.
