    this morning we messed around the house, checking texts the tapit ride group were dodging rain

    we were headed to helen, i told robin we could leave 12;30 1ish go up 985 while the rain came by the house

    she didn't have alot of faith, kept telling me how bad my life was going to be if she had to ride in the rain :lol3

    i was putting alot of faith in the radar man who was wrong yesterday

    we were off & we weren't the only ones

    as we got close to duncan bridge it sprinkled harder, almost kept going

    turned on to duncan bridge and it got even harder, i pulled over and was about to make a uturn

    when i saw a couple of cars not running thier wipers, so :ricky


    rain slowed and then

    stopped

    i don't know if ya'll have seen the news but earler this week helen (& western north carolina) had a lot of flooding

    helen was bad and were still working on clean up

    but in north carolina, canton cruso area got hit even worst

    at one time they thought 30 dead, but last i heard it was down to 20 missing

    prayers for those folks and their families

    sunday morn, i hadn't heard from anybody about riding

    so i'd decided to do some dirt roads

    i'd start to get on the bike, then start on some other project

    finally got going, planning to ride towards dahlonga for some dirt

    realized i had a hitch hiker

    mouth watering thinking about brisket benedict at clydes

    fred and me roll up to the front door to find out they're closed :(


    fell in behind these guys when the road opened up, they hit the passing lane abuot 75 mph

    i said hang on fred

    fred hung on

    around the backside of helen, looked like tubing was on
