"Been enrolled"?

Lots of places for sale all around. Don't know about prices. Most places have a "view", more or less up here. The waterfall would be a bit harder to find, and would drive the price up.

Just "let up on the throttle" and I'm sure you'll find something nice.

Kerr Scott lake would be a nice place, if you like lakes. Water is safer to play on than dirt....usually.

You know your way around the hills better than most folks. Any spots that you like in particular?

Well, I personally like Trade/ Mountain city or Fries VA or Linville....

She however just wants it to be on "clearance".... And Remote! She has to deal with people all week and would like to truly Get Away on the weekends.



I was hoping that you would see this Glen. Keep an eye out for me. We need to get together and ride soon!

Trade, TN would make us almost neighbors.

The views in Linville would be pricey, but Pisgah is right there and the drive up from Statesville would be a breeze.

That sucks....This one is already has been set up. We have been having dinners about once a month or so, suggestions for when and where are always open. When the next one rolls around feel free to make suggestions and I am sure a time and place can be established.

Haven't had the dinner get together this year but have been riding some.

Have you been riding long? What areas have you explored?

sidewinder,

rode a lot as a young man......but it's been 25 yrs and i am just getting back into it. been back on a cruiser for about 4 mths or so......put in about 3k miles in that time.

kept coming back to a dual sport, so when i found one i liked i bought it, now looking for some info on some dirt to get my confidence back around Boone, Wilkes and the surrounding areas.

at this point i am open to any suggestions. would love to ride with some others but don't want to slow anyone down either.

thanks for the reply.
