I'll be on my little XT...black clarke tank with blue camo and a top case, along with the other half on a DR650. Can't miss me.

Grab! Little Oak Campground off of 421. I'll have to wait until I get the feeling back into my backside before I can set a new tag. I'll try to get it in the morning.

Yes, I do believe we passed each other. Were you the one that didn't wave? Twice?

I waved.

We only passed once, if that was you. I was headed toward Shady Valley from Bristol. (it was a girl on a thumper with top box, and long hair flowing in the wind) I had just topped over the Mountain.

Oh, yeah. That be me. I kinda stick out like a sore thumb with the camo blue paint. I had just left the Country store and was on my way home. I'll be headed out on the ninjette today. She needs some love.

Goood Grab

Did you do any gravel? I'm kinda ticked they paved the section from 421 to Little Oak, but it's a fun little section as long as you don't meet any other vehicles head-on. It just gives everybody the temptation to do 60mph, not just the motos.

One of my favorite rides is to hit Holston Mtn Rd fron 19E, come out on 421, head down Denton Valley Rd a couple of miles and then hit Government Rd to get to Damascus. Then head back to JC through Shady Valley and Elizabethton.

I didn't hit much gravel. After the grab, I headed up to the country store for gas, then headed back towards the house. (My headlight sux) I did hit some gravel when I turned off to check the condition of Jacob's Creek, though.

Sounds like you've got a course already plotted. I'm gonna have to check it out, but I don't know which roads you mean. Sounds like you may have to show me which roads.

I just put over 200 miles on the ninjette today and rode the snake for the first time ever. I'm very glad it was mostly deserted today. I felt like I needed a cruiser. I'm at the pool right now or I would have put up the new tag. I'll get it up when I get home.

New tag...
Poplar Grove Baptist Church Est. 1877
Poplar Grove Baptist Church established in 1877 in the foothills of the Appalachians.
In the community of [...] formerly "ColeVille" on S. Creek
The old church burned down in 2005, so they built this new one.

New Tag.......

People have been picknicking at this site one county over from the previous tag since the great depression. Originally built in 1937 by the CCC. To minimize vandalism, the CCC installed carving logs, and also supplied the picnic area with marshmallow and hot dog sticks to keep the surrounding vegetation in good shape.

Off of a 3 digit road, whose numbers add up to 10.




A pic from way back in the old days
