Question not sure

I'm all set for an early departure From Conyers, GA and from what I know it should not be that much of a hike to Springer Mt. from the parking lot.

I could be there in Franklin by noon at the earliest.
I only can use my touchpad at WiFi hotspots so I could post my eta in Blaresville.

Thanks for the response.

well i got a story for yal..
if can tell ya about the 24+hour day we had...

started riding bout 9:30am yesterday.
some with another couple ,most was with a buddy and his wife ,that had three day old to them sport-touring nice silver fjr 08?.. after riding some 250+ miles.. we split and ran home layered up ,, cause we planed to go out for night ride and dinner too (as his parents where babysitting) better make the most of it..

so not even two block away from where we re-meet ,, we run thro a heard (least 12) of deer.. jumping over this 4ft fence and the road like you would see on discovery channel.. never seen deer like that up here!!

while not going over 40,, it happened so fast my buddy and wife T-bone a doe = was like pool balls when you break.. bike ends up throwing them ,,brecking buddys shin. wife bursed jamed hand noting broke on her.
killing deer on impact.

while i'm right behind them. sliding to stop ,seeing more deer in between us ,(in a blur) one pretty much jumps across my front fender. with even more further up the road..
as state trooper even said how rare that is..
need a go-pro just to "replay" it an figure out what did happen...
so friend was air lifted to ashville-mission. he had surgery last night ,they finished with him about 6:00am. he's all screwed back together now.. loaded my bike into buddy truck to drive her over there ,so she could get checked out too ,and they would have a ride. as i rode bike back home this morning,, man that was chilly..

Yeah, I'm glad no one was critically injured.

Im in Blairsville now. 161 miles so far today.
I took the forest road to Springer mountain, then later back down toward the lake and highway 180.

Great day.

Thumb in Sautee Nacoochee, GA

Linked up with an inmate at the waffle house in Hiawassee. Beautiful R1200GSA.
The road to Helen was very good.

I'll be leaving around dawn and pushing to Asheville, I should be there in the evening.

Let me know if anyone wants to link up.

Glad they're OK relatively speaking. Should've come with me to North Georgia. Great dual sport ride. Miles and miles of dirt and trails though some 2.5 hours away from me
