I think we just fueled up in the maze and then Old 15th to Del Rio....

















....it was pretty dark down in FR 209 through that little gorge so I didn't even try to get any pics but it's a pretty ride....then 107 and up and over the mountain to Paint Creek and up the river back to camp.

Back at camp I must have said or done something to run Reddog* off but ol Blue Mule just stood there and looked at me funny.


















Camped right on the river.....


















....sort of, I pitched my tent in what looked like a safe place.



How can you resist taking multiple pics of such a pretty bike?

I probably should have tried to take some pics at dinner etc but it was getting pretty dark out...that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

FFWD to Saturday.....who doesn't love a parade?


















It wasn't long before we had Bug Branch all to ourselves.



































Just waiting at an intersection.....

I knew the woods pics weren't turning out so kinda quit bothering. But we did ride some more fun stuff before running into another Nottarally ride group eating lunch in Hartford....like Hall Top and the upper connector to Rocky Top.


















City tow truck had to come rescue the city taxi.


















Mountain folk are all pretty nice and helpful like that.

From Hartford to downtown Mt. Sterling......


















.....to one of my favorite 'shortcuts'


















Getting up through those embedded rocks can be tricky with wet tires.

Mike and Shawn rode up while we were taking a short break before crossing...so we got to preview some line choices.

East Coast Rider goes for it on a borrowed WR

















It's always good to have a little help from your friends!

Half Pint elected to run back to camp while PMR and I did a down and back up Hurricane Creek.

















A little bit of maintenance has been done in several spots but it's still a fun dual sport ride.


















I heard the bus was gone now...guess they were talking about the yellow one.














Spot didn't see everywhere I went.






Thought about going for a ride this morning before breaking camp but not only were my boots still wet my sub frame was loose and missing a bolt.



Great weekend though!

Big fun riding and socializing with old friends and making new ones!

PineyMountainRacing took some nice shots and also some shots of me.


He's been gracious enough to grant me permission to do a little "Hey look at me!" with them!



Some shots make it look like I know what I'm doing......











......others.....











.....not so much!

















Behold...the Black Knight and his White Horse.

Thanks for reminding me how old and gray I look!



Time for a McLifestyle change too.










But it's OK as long as you can still suck it in, isn't it?




...well isn't it?!












Hey...it's just extra traction......



....and buoyancy!

He caught me dabbing a foot.




....but at least I got lucky and didn't stall and drop it....that time.












"Yeah this is a road....it's right here on the map....."
