    Great ride today.

    Hopped on the BRP in Blowing Rock, over to Roseboro Rd, quick stop to grab a snack and relax for a minute then back up Globe Rd to BR and Shulls over to home. 60 miles round trip and the TA was glorious!

    Saw a few other dual sport/adv riders out today, if you saw a TA it was prob me

    The new bars (Pro Taper CR High) are awesome.

    Love the scenery south of there I think it’s called Wilson Creek. I camped at Mortimer last month and bought some firewood from
    There.

    If anyone here is interested in a chill ride tomorrow afternoon, I am meeting up with another adv member at 4pm at the Blowing Rock Market and plan to do a 50ish mile or so ride on some gravel, some Parkway. Thinking of going down Globe Rd and then up Roseboro to the Parkway, up Grandmother Mtn and then back to the Parkway into Blowing Rock again.

    I've been doing a lot of chores and projects since getting back to Robbinsville late Thursday. Dinners have been as late as 9 pm, but I cooked dinner early tonight, just so I could do a quick ride after eating. Left the house just after 6 pm, and home just 2 hours later.
