Yes, I have a route in mind. It will start a couple of miles out of morganton, toward lake james, up old 105 to rt 183, thru jonas ridge, down tablerock rd, accross fish hatchery,over thru maple sally to edgemount and mormiter and possible globe road and rosecreek if time permits. this will be about 80% gravel forest service roads. there are several unimproved single tracks we can throw in if need be all along this route. took this picture on the route several weeks ago.

Talked to the machine shop today, Monday or Tuesday at the earliest before I get my forks back.

I'm also a little more banged up than I thought and probably need to stay off the KDX for a few more days. My left thumb got hurt somehow, not really sure?

I'm actually thinking about going camping up in the mountains tonight...if I ever get my act together this afternoon. If that doesn't happen I'll look for ya in Morganton and ride with the group up Old 105 but would then need to split off for TN once we get to Jonas Ridge.

Matt (Boike), myself (Reuben), and my friends Trevor and John will all be coming up in a truck to meet at the Morganton location. We'll do our best to be there at 10am. Looking forward to it!

Looks like exit 14 off of 85? I'll meet you there at 9:00. If I'm not there by 9:00 don't wait for me. Just saying because wife and I are both sick...

Have been watching the news and did not see any reports of downed riders or aerial rescues. Should be some good tails to be told!
