    Gotcha. Good idea. I probably wouldn't have thought of that. Looks like you had it to yourself too. How much did it run you?

    $24 + room to self. There's 3 beds in the room I was in.

    A 2 story house w a basement. Whatever was in the kitchen was up for grabs, just clean up after yourself, living room was the commons, computer to use, hot tub out back, shelves of books. A bit more personal compared to ones in I've been in Boston and NYC but not nearly the traffic if you know what I mean.

    There's always the return trip!

    Here's what I have in mind heading to Pittsburgh, PA Thursday or Friday. As long as I'm in the office by 9am I'm good. I think the green looks good to follow along back north. Google says 21 hours, which if I keep at my pace will be 48 hours. Give myself 3 days that's still a full day each. See what's up. If I run out of time there's always the interstate to jump on at the very end.
    From Return


    I'm not moving today. Doing some work and having a beer. Went over the bike, checked out everything, all good, oil was down about mid way. I'll have a psuedo drink out to everyone tonight and meeting up with a couple people tonite I believe. h

    Thanks for taking the time to let us travel along with you. You have a real eye for photography.

    Love the way you travel.

    One of our best vacations was 10 days in Colorado with no schedule. Is very liberating way to go.

    Looking forward to more.

    tomorrow is the time to head back north.

    TexanRT sent me route last year of NE GA and a local confirmed it to be the area to ride in GA.

    Weather is forecasted to be mild

    The route north is all National Forest, free sleep under the stars.

    I guessing tomorrow evenings aim will be Franklin, NC area.

    Not really a rush at all. 3 days to get to PGH.

    we live another hour past franklin... near waynesville.

    if you can ride a grave (really sorta sandy mud at this point) road up a mountain, we have a room for you.

    if you use GPS, PM me for a waypoint.
