Rain, Rain went away... then came back

*disclaimer: we are on camera number 3 so there are not a lot of pictures*

We started off riding in some of the thickest fog you can imagine- but no rain!
Our first stop was at CVS to buy a replacement camera, here are the pictures from it:

Yes those are three of the same too closeup of Dave's chin. For some reason every time you took a picture it copied this shot of Dave- (I think it had a thing for him)

Camera number 3 pictures:

Pictures of Mabry's Mill along the Blue Ridge Parkway

This is my kind of shop!

The actual mill and working water wheel

The water wheel powers a saw mill, double jig saw, flour/grits mill, metal grinder, lathe

Some shots of the views along the way

For some reason Dave thought this was the best shot to test the new camera (number 3)

We stopped earlier than planed in a town that's got to be great- after all, its named for Dave's good buddy Dan!

Apparently we stopped just in time, not 5 minutes after getting the bikes unloaded the rains hit- HARD!!!

Not really sure why I need to take pictures of food, but Kate always does it- must be a blog thing.


  1. Okay, LOVE IT! You guys are awesome! Love the pictures too! Funny that you thought the motorcycles might be troublesome ... turns out, it's the cameras instead! Nighty night. Be safe tomorrow!

  2. I'm following your journey & already lovin' it! I'm trying to decide whether I should show your blog to my husband -- would he get an idea???

  3. Yay!! My phone is finally letting me comment. Believe it or not, I LOVE that you guys are blogging this trip. So cool. I sent the link to beau-coodles of people - including my friend "Cocopuff" above. Please keep it up!!

  4. I love it that you guys took time to document the trip through photos and blogging!!! Glad you made it here safely. Maybe next year I'll see that purple and white Shadow in some of the photos?!
