    Phil,
    Get in touch next time you're in the mood to ride around Sugar Grove. I recently picked up a street bike, a BMW S1000XR, so will be up for either the twisties or the trails. It's been "quite a while" since I've fully explored Stone, so it's probably due for a few trips on the ATVs & chainsaws again over the Winter.

    Nice! I'm sorry I didn't see this before today. We rode right past the 321 end of Phillips Branch on Saturday.

    Some blue for you to view.

    I hope that was good. I think we still have 1 or 2 bottles.

    Layla is a good sport and agreed to go bicycle adventuring. We started in the bottom of the Tennessee Gulf.

    Two hours of pedaling brought us to Max Patch.

    A local run. We ran down a few off piste tracks, and despite the crazy wind and rain, they were mostly open. We moved one small bough.

    Wednesday was the first day of vacation. It was touch and go with the weather, but conditions were as good as I could have hoped for.

    It has been wet and snowy here. We get along the best we can.

    Caldwell County is serious about sculpture. Look it up if you don't believe me.

    This was a day of cognitive dissonance.

    What do you do after being mask shamed by your "fellow" bikers? Maintain proper social distance on the shiny road.

    Naturally, we were easy on him.
