Day 5

This is Sunday morning, our last day of this ride and it's overcast and damp when we leave LaFayette heading back to where we left the route a few miles south.

Smith gap rd on way back to route






We pick the route back up on FR252. This road has no steep hills, or any obstacles, except for maybe a little loose gravel in a tight turn, but it really fits perfectly into a Sunday morning ride. Just relax and enjoy the scenery

Here's a google earth shot of the first roads we take from LaFayette
Blue line is route and gray line at top of photo is road from Lafayette


Don't know if I forgot to clean camera lense or if it's the damp air, but picture quality is still leaving a lot to be desired.




Occasionaly, we would see a hunters vehicle. Well,, that could be one more obstacle,, if one of em sees a red/black deer running down the road.




Some of these shots were hazzy enough that I had to add some backlight to try and clear them up.
wish I knew a little more about photo editing,
















When we get to US27, The navigator says I should turn right, but the line on the overlay map shows route going left

here's a google shot of difference in route and the recalc'd route . . TET track is red line and Green line is recalculated route.




Here we're deciding whether to follow track or GPS route... After all, I could have screwed up the overlay map
OK, who do we trust, Garmin or Me,, ,, after a while we decided that even with all mistakes I had made on our trips,
I am still more trustworthy than GARMIN...
