Vacation Day 8
More trail riding, this time north of State Route 33
What Clay won’t do for a picture!
Clay sent me a few photos from the day – “Oh What A Felling”
My front wheel drops into a hole…
I think I can get a better picture of my truck from here…
Thanks for the share Clay!
Vacation Day 7
The day started with some pew pew (or bang) Jim and Beth had not shot their new shotgun, I wanted to shoot my 357 and clay brought a fun target 22 with 200 rounds.
The clip is empty Sam!
The main reason we left the southern part of the forest was to drive the well known forest service roads, there were some rock ledges (no pictures, I was spotting) and a little mud.
and some great views. This is Meadow Knob, we finished on Flagpole Knob before heading back to camp!
Butterfly wing macro, just because it was pretty.
Vacation Day 2 – Staton Creek Falls. A great roadside waterfall that kept going.
You had to bush whack down to see the whole series of falls.
Then back on the road and lunch at Ben Salem Wayside and this old lock
Canal boats used the lock in the late 1800’s on the North River.
A quick stop at Panther Falls. It was too crowded for us, we watched for a bit and decided to come back later. I am counting it as Hike #24 of #52Hikechallenge, it is a short walk, but I did it 3 times this week, so totaled I am counting it!
The end of the day.
Spent all day at work, prepping for next semester. Then built my new HF tent for the Taco. The evening was Sam and me watching a movie. Just another day….
A day at home, the Land Cruiser is back, so I had to rotate the tires. (Before on top, after below) I had been running the new 285s on the Taco, and a set of worn out tire on the LC while in the shop, now everything back… I will miss the stance of the 285s on the Taco. The rest of the day was spent watching the Tour, yard work and packing for the next trip.
Camping for the 4th on Kerr Lake in Virginia, a spot right on the lake!
The next morning…. Johnny sleeps in…
as I headed home to clean up and get ready for work (read grade) – look at the top of the tent
Cats really do think we are here for them.
I woke up in northern Virginia….
and finished the day with crepes in Rochester, NY
This is 6:30am on a ferry.
The rest of the day, drive 5 or so hours home, clean truck, clean camp gear, start packing for New York! Click to Watch a Video of Trip
The end of the road (beach) on the South Banks.
or just the Tacomas
the tide was perfect for shell hunting
Then over to the lighthouse
We cooked dinner and watched the sunset
Then we headed back to find a place to camp for our 6:30am ferry.
Well crap, thunderstorm warning, lightning, and wind. We slept (or tried) in the truck cab till about 12:30am and gave up and set-up the Flippacs.
