A cool little camp site, Neuseway Nature Park, I had the place almost to myself.

Ridgemont Country Club are the Piedmont 40+ 3.5 singles team in the state championship in Goldsboro after winning the summer season.  We are 1-1 at the end of day 1 and in third place. I played #1 singles for both my matches and went 2-0.

My first match was odd, I was nervous and tight and my legs were literary shaking. I fell behind 4-1, before winning 11 straight games to win 6-4,6-0.

My second match started better, 6-0 but let him win 2 serves and break me before I won the second set 6-3

A foggy start to my ride.

The BRP Linn Cove viaduct was even worse. It was an awesome morning on the bike!

Then it was time to explore… a Forest Service Road I heard about….

pictures never do it justice and I quit taking photos as my stress raised and the obstacles became tougher… this was no joke; several washouts, ravens and wheel lifting later we were halfway through. Each time I walked a route, I was looking not to make sure I could get through it, could I get back up it if the road was blocked a or a closed gate.

An awesome camping spot for a lunch break. My truck is the minimum I would have wanted to take, 33 inch tires, 2.5 inch lift, armored with bumpers, sliders and skid plates… anything less would have resulted in damage!

A good day!

A weekend that changes. Instead of elk, we ended up in Boone again, since I hadn’t planned anything, we searched for a waterfall I had not been to, this is Laurel Creek Falls (I think) but we rock hopped up the creek for a long ways looking for more. Either way this is an awesome swimming hole.

The fire tower was on top Butt Mountain, but you couldn’t climb to the cab.

On the way down, we took a different trail and James slid into a hole,

on Butt Mountain : )

luckily Maxtrax worked again… no damage! (other than a mud flap)
