    across soco gap


    [​IMG]


    into Maggie valley

    past ghost town, dad preached there every other sunday when I was a kid


    [​IMG]



    they had a gerrilla costume & some body would put it on and monkey around in a cage, then get loose and chase people around the park

    oh, If I've told this story before please stop me

    anyway there were some guys who would sneak the costume out then take turns putting it on and jumping out in front of cars on soco gap

    one night the guys jumps out, car screechs to a stop

    highway patrol man jumps out and starts shooting:defend

    guy in the suit went off the side of the mt rolling tru the kudzu

    & that was the end of that

    all good things must come to a end:lol3

    stopped off at bear creek brewing, enjoyed the view
