(little private "sting" joke from the past.....)
I came across three more decent sized nests when stripping plastic. Fortunately, no more stings, but I was very aware of what what was buzzing around me. No Indie sales person around to sympathize and tend to my wounds. You wanna straw with that slurpie??

Ah, the good old days....................

It's going to Guy's to be bled and filled with fresh fluid. Fresh fluid was due anyways...

Have a GREAT and safe weekend, over and out...

The whole underside of one of the body cowlings was home to a number of wasps nests. The fella in this pix nailed me several times as I was getting ready to pop it off. Fortunately, I'm not allergic to stings, but damn they hurt.

Dragged out the power washer and blasted the whole thing to try and get rid of the nests; They're still hovering around - pissed - that I took out their homes.

We'll jump back on it a little later.

Guy,

My flat rate manual shows that it should be the same cost as a bottle of Knob Creek

Dr. Q called me this evening. Apologized for "losing" my number. Supposed to pick it up Monday, or I will deliver it back from whence it came. Will know more then.

I was there yesterday. I spent the week with the parents and my family in Gatlinburg. I had heard of the museum and was looking forward to getting there. My Dad tagged along and we both had an excellent visit. They were walking around starting up bikes on display left and right. They started up a 1916 Harley and the next thing they were riding it out the door and down the driveway.

It can be tricky to find. We had an address and were looking on the one side of the street and almost missed the sign on the other side of the street pointing to the entrance.

It was the only place I have ever been where the parking lot probably had 50 bikes and 2 cars in when we left.

On the way back we stopped at a big knife store just before Pigeon Forge. It was huge and I had no idea there was one place with so many knives for sale. I have no interest in knives but it was a fascinating place anyway.

I'm thinking leave the house about 7 for chick-fil-a biscuit and riding by 7:30. That should put us there about 9 or so.. Too early or can you make it? Chuck what do you say?

Just had a good few hours of steady down pouring rain so the Mud Road should be awesome on Saturday.

The promise of breakfast has sealed the deal. So 7 at Chick-fil-a on 10?

Yeah if you're good with that, I'll see you there. and hopefully Eddy will make it. It won't be the "warthog challenge" without him.

You want to meet us? How about Lombardy/14 around 9?

I only know how to get to Lombardy and probably Iris based on your instructions from the other day. After that I'm in explore mode. Hope Chuck shows or Jeremy remembers his way around. I'm also trying to drag in DLJockey if I can get him, he knows a thing or two about that area.

9 sounds good at Lombardy. I know all the 'secret' Jeep Trail entrances as does Chuck, since we originally found them together with BillsburgGS.

I won't claim to have a clue. I turned around after going down and mud surfing. The 7-11 wasn't happy when I came in to get change for the air compressor. I was covered head to toe.
