Woke up at 0400 this morning and decided to head to the mountains for the day..

Josh's favorite creek:



I blasted thru it..such a nice sandy bottem



I wont say which way I came....but the chatooga is rather low right now



But I did find a nice hole to take a dip in and cool down:


You know how many times I had to jump in the water to get the timing just right so the self timer would catch me?..many


And I did not forget to look for some houses for you catlyst: This was the best one out of about 3 that I found..It is right our side of Linconton has a bunch of acreage around it..







and this is what the house was...under restoration I guess, but does not look like they have done anything for years:



Was a long day but I had fun..ohh yeah and I got a flat tire up in Rabun..county..had patches but no compressor...found the nearest guy..he was a litlle crazy but he got me air and I was on my way

Come by and get this rim if you still need it. It is a 36 hole 21 inch Excel. Like I said you can have the spokes if you dont have Excel already. I would ride with you but this weekend my wife is working Sat/Sun so I will be babysitting my 2 boys.

Hate to see you go before I even met ya man! I can't ride on Saturday, I've got a birthday party to go to for my niece.. It's at the lake, too bad Irene couldn't veer up this a way and make us some good waves for the wakeboards...

Hey folks, just got a DL650 and I'm interested in meeting up to do some rides. I still have stock tires that suck with traction offroad but could do some mild offroad riding.

I'm in Evans so it's about a 30 minute ride. I've been riding out there the last week to get the break-in miles. Let me know when you ride and I'll try to meet up.
