Moto-camping in Appalachians around the Nantahala and Smoky Mountains. Camping off a motorcycle is not as easy when you go off-road.
A quick afternoon trip up into the Bankhead forest, testing out a cheap Wal-Marx fishing rod. Overall a very successful trip, I failed to bag an edible fish but it was a great day riding.
Nice weekend on the ridge

A few of you might remember I got a ticket July 3rd for “weaving” – No signal, a mile from my house, got it on video, and it was bullshit, I changed lanes 2x in 5 miles, but I wonder what the judge will say? After talking to a few people, it appeared I had […]
A few years back I visited Shelby Springs as part of the Alabama Ghost Town Project, but I never really found much information, or ruins, so I decided to go back and do it right this time. The Shelby Springs Resort existed in 1839. By 1855, a two story hotel was built. During the Civil War, the facilities […]
