    Anyone that needs to get some exercise can hike to Laurel Fork Falls off the AT. The trailhead is about 1/2 mile from the resort. It's about a 2 mile hike to the falls from the trailhead.

    advtenn,
    I was wishing that I could have gone on the scouting ride with you on Monday, and wondered where you might go. I had no idea that you'd be riding right by my place.

    It's sort of strange seeing somebody else posting shots of places I ride everyday. (Strange in a good way):thumb

    knybango, I noticed you went down White Oak Rd. Hard to believe it's state road. I saw a bear on it one day. Where's that old church looking building that back in the woods? I haven't come across it yet. Looks like a fun place to spend Halloween night! :freaky

    Guess I need to pull out the camera and be part of this thread, before you guys show all the good stuff.

    White Oak Rd. is fun - I was talking to the guys in the gas-station at the bottom and they told me that I should not go.... don't tell me things like that! :lol3

    it's not about tough... it's about telling me I can't do it :norton (I just don't listen very well)


    The DRZ should be ready this weekend: lowering links will be here tomorrow (hope I don't have trouble installing them), the seat is cut down and just need to be recovered, tags tomorrow....

    the side-stand won't be shortened, but there's always a tree or something to help me out. :muutt

    Any of you guys riding up that way this coming weekend? I went out Tuesday late afternoon and scouted a dead end road, crashed, and went home. The DRZ is running too good!
