I can stay 2 days if we go like this last time. I have very little vacation time left and have to save it for later this year so I have to go my days off.

I get 3 days off in a row, so give me some dates, and see what I can work out. I could drive one day, ride the second and go home the third.

You thinking drive one day, ride and drive back the second day?

July 12th and 13th? I can drive down on the 11th. Will check with Jai also, maybe they will have his bike done by then. I will be on the same shift but different days off so I can leave as soon as I get off of work at 1400 on the 11th and drive back the afternoon of the 13th

I have to work and have court both days. What all did we run? My parents wanted to see the route. I know we ran the foothills parkway, the dragon and the skyway. Did we run both the NC and TN side of the skyway? Or did we run the loop that is listed on the dragon site?

We just ran the NC side of the Skyway, all the way to Tellico City and back.

Foothills Pkwy to the Dragon and then to Skyway and back.

so it is that loop? I am confused. We ran the skyway to Tellico Plains and then back down the sky way to the dragon. So we did the skyway twice right?

We rode the Foothills Parkway to the Dragon...the Foothills Parkway is not shown on that map. We rode through the dragon and on down 129 to 143, which becomes the Cherohala Skyway. We rode all 42 miles of the Cherohala Skyway from Robbinsville to Tellico Plains...18 miles in North Carolina and 24 miles in Tennessee. We got a drink in Tellico Plains, then turned around and did the entire trip in the opposite direction...we went back the same way we came. We didn't do the loop, but we actually rode a lot longer than the loop.

Just got in from work, and it looks like I missed some of the party. Oh, Will, I got shot at twice tonight.

This kinda' sucks because I had to piece together a bunch of maps from Mapquest...but this is the whole route in red. We did the entire route in both directions.

The maps up to you. Just a laugh. Man, talk about a rough week. I got shot at by those damn cannon fireworks. I was in the projects, go figure, and the damn things landed just feet away. Caused vehicle's car alarms to activate which were parked a block away.
