maybe it has to do with how it's mounted. i always download tracks too, never any gaps in coverage in North America, mountains or other.

Speaking of stupid shit and bad judgement, it seems the dumbest thing I did all weekend wasn't crashing. No the dumbest thing I did was tell the wife about it. So, the war department has put riding in the mountain alone on the black list for a while. So.....if anybody is planning any trips up there in the future, and don't mind a modern day Super Dave tag-a-long, give me a shout.
Can you ever go on a Tuesday, stay Tuesday night, come back Weds afternoon?

A few photos from the trip.


Official Overlook photo.


Up at Cade's Cove in Great Smoky Mountain National Park.


Little gravel drive up along Rt. 28 between Fontana and CROT.


One of many rivers coming out of the park.


This bridge was closed for the first half of the week, but opened up later. The "goat path" was the quickest way to CROT from Fontana, which I didn't mind.


My buddy Travis followed me up this road for 7 miles before we turned around and headed back down. Next year I won't leave my GPS in the cabin.


I already miss it out there. Been back 3 days and I'm already hating traffic, my job, and everything around me.

no, he sat his ass back down, said he was truly sorry and it wouldn't happen again then putted away like a docile moped. BUT after the chief was gone he gave him a tongue lashing like no one has ever heard !

Two men are driving through Luray when they get pulled over by the chief of Police. The chief walks up and taps on the window with his nightstick.

The driver rolls down the window and WHACK, the chief smacks him in the head with the stick. The driver asks, “What the hell was that for?”

The cop answers, “You’re in Luray son. When we pull you over, you better have your license ready when we get to your car.”

The driver says, “I’m sorry, Officer, I’m not from around here.”

The cop runs a check on the guy’s license, and he’s clean. He gives the guy his license back, walks around to the passenger side, and taps on the window.

The passenger rolls down the window and WHACK, the chief smacks him on the head with the nightstick.

The passenger asks, “What’d you do that for, sir?”

The chief says, “Just making your wish come true.”

The passenger asks, “Making what wish come true?”

The chief says, “I know that two miles down the road you’re going to say to your buddy, “I wish that asshole would’ve tried that shit with me!”

A couple of us are camping in Laural Fork, WV this weekend...maybe we will see some of the Connies running around up there. We will be riding 2up on GS's, so more easy gravel & paved than intense dirt.

Be safe hope to see some of the guys up there.
