I think I've read a Danger Dave ride report. He has a chance to make it to fifty??? Ain't that something?! If you two collaborate on your half century ride, THAT will be good reading. Thanks once again for the open invite, Lee. One of these days. Very Happy  Hoping you all have a great time.

A teaser...

It started with the rising sun over my shoulder.


All was going well until Wytheville. 77S and 81N were at a full stop. Listening to the CB, I fell in with the detour masters.


NOT GOOD. The helicopter had already left.


Then I was here and we got ready to ride...


The adventure began.

More highlights...

Mike going through 'that spot' on the way to Welch. You can kind of go through the middle, but you must be very careful.



Punisher getting ready Thursday morning. It was Mike's Choice, Bramwell, and beyond day





We were here, and other places...







Explorer and Ed showed up Friday AM. Mullens and other select areas were on the agenda. We rode a new (to me) trail that day. Past an old cemetery off of Pinnacle and came out a couple of miles from Mullens.





And before we knew it, we were here.







We met Under(bite)dog. Tina is very pregnant by the way.







When it all ended, the mountains were disappearing over that same shoulder...

That Delorme has a nice program for those tracks, much better than Garmin. Good to see a 570 representing on the ride! Those poor dogs, I feed every one I run across, some how I just feel sorry for them.

Good stuff!
Looked to be a good time.
Especially when compared to a helicopter ride from the freeway... Neutral 
Thanks for sharing your pics!
