I love this stuff.......but don't ride it near as often as I'd like to.


















Back into 'the maze'......

Riding tip #205 'when you stop, put your kickstand down before leaning the bike over'

Look real close.....there's a KLR down (again) just almost out of sight. It was 'steeper than it looks' and we didn't know if we could either get past or stop without tipping over ourselves.


















Break time.


















Check this out....they made a blooper reel too!

Saturday it rained...a lot but camp was high and dry.


















I loaded the bike up pre-emptively not knowing if there'd be another chance to ride or not...but there was.

















Yep...lets get geared up...it's gonna quit any minute.



Oh yeah....only 3 of us stayed and waited it out!

The 3 of had a great ride that afternoon though! About a 90 mile loop on some very tractable gravel!

First stop, Rocky Top.

Then Hall Top and over to the top of Snowbird...all the way up to the VOR.



































Yeah...we were literally up in the clouds!

Then a great run over to and out of Mt Sterling to Buzzard's Roost!


































Kentucky Chris hangs on.




Got back to camp with plans to ride again Sunday before heading home but while lubing my chain realized that the rear wheel bearings were toast. So I loaded up and drove back to sleep in my own bed.


That turned out to be a good call.....I slept well and took 'the pig' out for a nice ride this afternoon.

What a difference a day can make in the weather.


















This big old house sits right above and next to what I think is called the old Andrews Mill.

















The lawn is always manicured and the building looks to be well maintained but I don't thin anybody lives in it.

The land between the house and the mill had been recently cut and since there didn't appear to be anybody around.....I had a look around.


















Another old house not as well maintained sits way at the back of the property....

Paid some big bucks to fill up with non-ethanol rec-90 and headed up White Oak.


















The road actually bridges across this waterfall and continues below it.
