Joe and I are in the Iron Horse Campground in Stecoah, NC. IF anyone ever comes down here, this is the place to stay. $16 a night, fantastic facilities. Free grills, free coolers for use while here. Hot showers, laundry, etc.
Have done just over 1100 miles so far. Rained every day, but what can you do? Froze our asses yesterday coming over Mt. Mitchell on the BRP in the fog, but it was 85F in the valleys.
Went to Wheels Through Time motorcycle museum
in Maggie Valley. Walked up in our gear and met the owner, Dale Walksler.He asked us where we were from and where were we going? When we told him, he invited us into the museum as his personal guests. Showed us around. What a great guy. He has a new show on Discovery called "What's in the Barn?". Can't wait to see it.
Joe is doing great and is a fantastic riding partner. No complaints, no worries. And tomorrow he gets to start leading with the TAT roll charts. That should be fun! We are on time and on budget so far. Expenses have been about $60 a day for the both of us, and that has been high because we've been eating out. Have yet to cook our own meals but I think that will change shortly.
