I need help with that.


Here's the map of the three videos I posted earlier. "B" is Black Bear Resort.

Looks like you had a great day. How many miles did you rack up?


There's another BBQ you might want to try that's just a few miles down, at the intersection of 167 & 321 (right on 321, about 1/4 mile on left). I can't say if it's any better, but it's usually crowded around eatin' time.


Btw, I love good BBQ too & I have always thought it would be really cool to open a BBQ joint and have a pig pen out back, and keep a slaughtered pig hanging in the window. The pigs out back could wear tags saying "Friday", "Saturday", etc..!!

I think it has to be Hickory smoked too, which means you could have a "Wood Splitting Contest" every Saturday. $10 to enter and the winner gets "all you can eat BBQ & all you can drink cold beer". (If you could get 8 +/- guys to split wood for 30 minutes, while the crowd of beer drinking fans roots them on, you'd be jammin'! Making money while getting your Hickory split AND Entertainment for the crowd!
I bet you could figure out how to make some money with a "Hog Riding" contest too...

You'd get rich while the other BBQ joints go broke!!

Dang, you really outdid yourself on the last couple pages.

Mark O got a pic of you at the Purple Fiddle last night, maybe he'll post it...

I'm surprised the roads in WV have way less crap on them than what you were seeing.

Don't be surprised. I can travel down most roads in WV and when you cross the line into VA, they generally turn to crap. For one of the poorest states in the country, it definitely has good roads.

I didn't make it down to the Texas hill country this year, had too much other stuff fall on the same week. Then as a consolation I had hopes of joining GlennR on a trail ride scouting run but I wasn't able to get the old DR ready in time due to thunderstorms.

What did get done is the Strom is wearing some new shoes.

Out scrubbing them in on back roads near Lake Lure.....


















It appears the dial got bumped into fisheye mode.
