    [​IMG]

    i kept semi close to him to the top, where he made a quick uturn and went back down again

    on the other side of the mt i was hungry i'd had my heart set on jim's smoking que for a couple of days

    but apperently so had every body else

    on the other side of blairsville somebody had a pretty good fender bender

    i'd met @justBert for the first time and he was telling me where he lived near my dad

    as we talked i told him about a 20 years ago, the hvac project manger on the job i was on in buford ga, was wanting some rebar for his cabin in the mountains.

    i asked him where it was, he told me it was some place i'd never heard of.

    we kept talking, when we got it narrowed down to state, region, town, road. I told him my dad lived on that road. Then back and forth i told him the creek didn't cross the road there. He said yea it does

    Then he said oh your talking about lower sawyer creek, my place is on upper sawyer creek.

    Bert says wait what was his name.

    I said ron, he said thats who i bought part of my place from.

    let me tell ya a couple of things i heard last week i enjoyed

    i had a meeting on a jobsite last week so i rode hantz & fritz over

    after the meeting we're all walking off & my new to me project manger asks where'd ya park

    so i point at the bike, waiting for the usual either thats cool, how old is that or what is that

    nope he says "oh you rode your little bike" :lol3



    then saturday when i rolled into camp at didn't happen notta rally i rode tru and checked it all out, saw @Cuttle & dezmo at their tent. So we're talking she looks the 11fity over and says thats a clean bike

    well for you :lol3


    also last week, i found a glue on dent puller on amazon for under $20 bucks

    it got here this week and i tried it out on the old /5 tank where i rearended @knybanjo 8 or 10 years ago
