Back off the highway and invading the neighborhoods of fine upstanding American citizens.


















Signs of Spring....it'll all be leaf covered greenness by RDV time....


















Not quite 'off the grid'

These 'low traffic' back roads along the state line still have a lot of slag/sand on them greatly reducing the fun factor....lets hope it all gets washed off real good over the next month.


















Look close and you can see the ski slopes of Beech Mtn in the distance....


















See the sand?



It's like riding on ball bearings right now.

Back up Heaton Creek (the road with the downed tree last week) and a poor shot at catching the rapids that follow the road. sorry, no time to stop!


















Got myself mixed up in a gokart race going down the other side of Walnut Mtn.



...or is that Buck Mtn?















I may have tried this same shot last week...from Old Beech Mtn.



My aim was better this week so a big to srdd.

I was lucky enough to have a traffic free run of not only it but a couple of other more popular roads that won't be on my RDV routes....but are quite fun when traffic free.

More from George's

Heading home......down into and through the Wilson Creek Gorge.

















That's Grandfather Mtn through the trees on the Left.




It was quite busy down at river level and as mentioned earlier I even seen Gaston Gagne driving a kayak shuttle through the cloud of dust....no pics from the cloud of dust.















It was once again much warmer down low too so I had to shed a few layers before heading south on old 18.

...not that anyone cares.




The green box is Black Bear.





Here's a slightly more accurate view of my activity courtesy of govt. spy agencies.



Note that my routes include both more and less than what is represented here.















Parting shack shot.....just to get my quota for the weekend.
