left thurs the 14th. took the back way up to georgia guidestones. we gawked and took a bunch of pics. headed up ga77 went thru hartwell and headed northeast to pick up 441. stopped at deepest hole east of the mississippi (tallulah gorge)
next stop franklin nc and pick up 28 and head for deals gap. this section of 28 is quite twisty so be on your A game. made it to the resort. checked in, ate, and made a run. all extra luggage stripped of the husky. ran great. shinko podiums felt quite stable. my buddy ridin my klr. opted to relax and start drinking. we did cherohala skyway to tellico plains to marysville us129. the top end of the dragon on saturday. ate some great brisket at the dragonpitt and headed back to the resort. return trip we did same as last year. great time. 581 miles thur-sat.

Glad you liked the food at the Pitt. My buddy Dennis would be happy to know things are still going well with Jane running the place by herself. Are you considering staying there next trip?
