A good warning sign about decreasing radius turns (notice the little guy flying off the motorcycle) Kinda resembles a Harley

Haha, where was that sign at? I'll have to get a pic with it next time I'm home. You're making me homesick :(


That pic was taken before I got to Mt. Mitchell. There were 3 or 4 of them. That was the only one safe enough to stop at for a pic. There were also flyers at every stop with those signs on them warning drivers.

5 star hotel = $58.00 a night. You can imagine all the cushy amenities you get for that kind of dough. But it had a bed and cable TV.

I rode the Parway from the beginning all the way down to Deals Gap about 3 weeks ago. It was sweet. Mt Mitchell was cool, and so was the vioduct.

My biggest problem is that it was freezzzzing. I had a ton of layers, leather pants+jeans on top, and I was still cold as hell.
