Making a stop at the bank to see what I have for travel money, fingers crossed. Repaired the exhaust, bike loaded, running very light this trip, a tankbag and a smaller rear tail bag. Will spend tonight at my youngest son’s as it puts me an hour closer to Greg.

Mike and I found a great road up to spruce knob turing off 33 before getting to senaca rock.
It was a road worthy of Joe the bobber.
Great view at the top. Beats sitting under the roof in front of the building.

Ride, hot tub, cold pool and then a cold beer. Life is good in the valley.

I've been running on about 4 hours of sleep each night since Saturday. (Between getting up at 2:30 for work, working till 5, and getting things together for this event...) I plan on getting a good night's sleep tonight, get up around 6 or 7, load up the Steaks , Burgers, and Side dishes, then head out. I have 32 Omaha Steaks in Top Sirloin and Filet Mignon, Tater Salad, and Baked Beans, and 40 1/3 pound Gourmet Burgers to bring. (If we need more we'll run to the grocery store. ) It's a 2 hour drive, so I should arrive around 10 or 11. (Since the Georgia Shiners are AWOL I'll have a couple Mason jars of West Virginia's finest.)

Wrong pedestrian.

‘Lower timber ridge road’ more better than smoke hole.
