Before tennis I meet the local FJ Cruiser club including the owner of this truck whi I have been FB friends with for a couple of years since we share MTB, off-roading and camping interests but had never met in person!

The Great Channels in SW Virginia. I hiked here a couple of years ago in the cold and snow, today was much warmer.

It’s fun to explore the cracks and crevices.

these are the main “slots” – we explored trying to find more remote ones, but only got tangled in vines and bushes.

Another fire tower I can’t climb (Middle Knob) and since I was here last, the care taker’s cabin is gone.

Ride #2 FATS (Fayetteville Area Triathlon Society) visit FATS (Forks Area Trail System) ride was cut short after I double flatted, used 3 CO2 cartridges, 2 tubes, 2 patches and a CX tube to get out. Great trails and I had a blast on Great Wall and Skinny Loops

An afternoon and evening at Bill and Shanda’s, low country boil, swimming in the rain and an evening boat ride for Purple Martins (if we had enough gas in the boat)

A big day…. Sam enters UNC Chapel Hill

This was not a pretty dorm room! Luckily she only has to spend 1 night here!

official!

After breakfast with Sam as she waited for stuff to start, I rode a new trail system for me, Brumley Nature Preserve in Chapel Hill. Just like when Steph went to Kent State, I will get a ride in when picking up/dropping off. This is a flowy and fast system and a lot of fun!

Dinner – lettuce wrapped lamb burger…. I may have missed some important carbs today! My USTA singles match went 2.5 hours in 90 plus degrees, I won 7-6 and 7-5 to remain undefeated this summer, but it hurt.
