I'll be commuting from Five Ton Freddie's in the maze, and I'll be going for a pavement/gravel ride Friday morning.
See you all there.

I know Freddie from ETSU about forty years ago. He lives in the maze.

Scooter says Black's sells beer. I think all those little stores do.

Don't they also sell beer at the little former gas station up 107 at the intersection of Blue Mill Road (the first end of the loop)???
That one is really pretty close to Old Fifteenth and Catnip. They even have bands in there sometimes.

That is the fox den, they dont sell beer (but have gas and good food). The shack was only store in Del Rio that had it and its closed now but word is sombody bought it and is reopening it. So theres a chance it may be open by then. Closest beer is Blacks, Bridgport Mkt and Stateline Bar and all are accessible with very little hwy, but then again haulin it back to camp may get a little tricky in a few spots.

They stopped carrying PREMIUM gasoline a long time ago, so I stopped going there.
Have they started carrying PREMIUM gasoline again ???

(KTM's use PREMIUM, so for the last few years, I've been going to Black's instead).
