Yeah, I know. You'll sneak out and grab it when I'm about 335 miles into my 350 mile each way, wild hair run for it.

That would suck wouldn't it. Maybe you should let me know if you're going for it so I won't do that to you. You can trust me.

Okay but watch that first big dip on 77; there's some ice down there now.

No problem. I've got my tire chains on.

And it's a great tag. Just doesn't seem to be anybody nearby. I want to go get it but the weather isn't cooperating plus I know the roads down to the old bridge there aren't exactly maintained in tiptop shape. Anyone going on a street bike should probably call the park office first.

Yep, great tag.... Early storms from Super storm Sandy slowed it down a bit. I am within 20 miles of it right now... But no chains for the bike. It is a snowing.

try again - seems like the "new photobucket" screwed up the settings

The roads down to the old bridge aren't really maintained well. When I was there in 2006 I had to slide through the copious gravel on the roadway on the side where the visitor's center is, then snake past a downed tree on the other side. In other words it's a great ride.

I descended on the visitor's center side and part way down being careful of the gravel in the switchback turns I heard a rumbling. Above me and barrelling down with speed that only experience brings was a huge bus used for carting rafters up and down. One turn later it was obvious he was going to catch me until I spotted a deer path that dropped straight down and didn't have to make all those turns.

Hijack!

Has anyone been up old 105 lately? Wanting to take my gf up to Wiseman's View. The last time I was up there in October I added some new dents/scratches to the rocker panels on my beater Camry in a failed attempt to get there from the Linville side.

With her lack of gear and little experience riding pillion I don't want to risk it on the SV.

Thanks!
