I left home late Wed morning all packed up for 4 nights and 5 days in Dennis Cove, TN.

Ya gotta make hay while the sun is shining.


















Farmers in the hills were busy too......


















With maybe the exception of those growing Christmas trees.

Black Bear Resort is just up this road a piece.


















Quite a bit greener than my latest scouting pics, eh?





















Headed for a 'high valley' off yonder somewheres......

Early arrivals that camped 'up top' Wed night.


















Thursday morning about a dozen? bikes lining up to follow me over to the Hawg-n-Dawg for lunch via Unaka Mtn rd and Beauty Spot Gap.


















We didn't lose anybody due to somebody not waiting for the bike behind them this year!

We lost the clear blue skies on Thu but managed to escape any rain.


















A pee break that just happened to coincide with a flat tire. That's sallydog and Little Dog Chirico that rode together on that Super Tenere some 11,000 miles in the past few weeks leading up to the RDV!


















The flat tire happened right behind where I stopped...how lucky was that?

So she brought the bike up to the wide spot we had stopped in to change the tube.


















Little Dog supervises.


















Just stand back and watch 'em go.

It was a cloudy/hazy day atop Unaka Mt overlooking Beauty Spot Gap....but the temps were perfect for riding.


















Blooms at elevation!






















Only one other bike arrived behind me at the overlook so we went back to investigate.

Just around the last curve about 200 yds back.


















Thankfully Greg's Bro was fine! He had the bike almost stopped and just slipped off the bank...thankfully again there were some little trees to catch it!


















We got the manpower up to 5 or 6 and raised it out fairly easily.


















Panniers were a little tweaked but were able to be reattatched....all else seemed to be good to go.

Finally getting the group to the overlook.


















...and to a well earned meal at the Hawg-n-Dawg


















There were only two bikes brave enough to follow me back up to Beauty spot after lunch.
