If George is going to continue on this muddy path, he's going to have to invest in a set of Heidheaus.

Wet! Rained a good 50% of it and only 25% of the roads were dry I'd guess. Good times though, Mitch and I had fun, he can handle that RS great!

It was sure good to ride the NC TN GA area with you guys! Good to meet you George and very nice to ride with you and the HP2, along with the rest of the eclectic gorup of Carolona Campers. Imad it home at 9:00 Sunday night after 910 fast and safe miles. I'll have to find a way to spend more time down there.

Gary, thanks for leading the Thursday ride, it was very exciting. Please post more of those great photos.

Dee I greatly appreciate you putting the camp together. I had really planned to continue to caamp at the GMR but decided to not move my camp for simplicity's sake agood choice as it turns out.

Craig, and Dan, as ususal it was great to camp and ride with you.

A fabulous adventure.

And we were left to our own devices to figure out why the elephant was hung.

That's OK. I figured it out. Poor guy, so he stepped on someones head. That happens all the time on this board!
