I got two weeks off that I hadn't expected. Right during my one of my favorite times of the year. I came up with a plan and then changed it due to the weather forecast. My final plan: Ride out of Maggie Valley, NC for three days and then head to Murphy, NC for the Hanging Dog KLR rally.
I loaded my KLR650, XT350, camping gear, and way to much stuff into my Avalanche and left Marietta, Ga at around 9 this morning. At around 9:30 I got on I-575 heading north - away from Atlanta.
Traffic headed out of Atlanta wasn't bad but going into Atlanta it was still backed up. I'm glad I don't have to make that commute......it would drive me crazy.
Passing through Andrews, I stopped to get a pic of the giant chopper in front of Cherokee Cycles.
Huge pipes save lives????
Then It was off to Maggie Valley where I checked into the Applecover Inn and unloaded my bikes.
I finally went riding at around 2 in the afternoon. I had no real plan....I figured something would come to me as I rode along.
