Pretty good afternoon with a delayed 1PM start after a Dermatologist appointment 9AM and hang with Eller at Gun Places (Knifeworks and BUD's), then lunch at home with Betty.

Decided to take the 22 Semi Auto with 50 rounds and a few targets to Chuck Swan, shoot 'em, and then ride home.

A few backroads from Chuck Swan to Sharp Chapel downtown. Then one picture of Hogskin Rd, a quick stop at Petticoat Jct for memories sake (miss that place). Followed by a run over Joppa Mtn (need a few switchbacks on any good MC Ride).  :happyrider

That about tells the story except for the Pictures.

PICTURE Story

Ride backroads to Sharp Chapel downtown.

This does not qualify as a backroad (no character) -- just a nice view and easy ride.

Same barn, different angle.

Real Backroad.

Round the corner (above) and see rest of the valley (below). That's What I'm Talkin' About !!!!

Sharp Chapel downtown is the two houses shown and a Post Office (not shown).

Hogskin Rd offers some nice valley views also.

Good Memories had here (Petticoat Jct) -- It's closed now.  :groan

Ride Country Roads - a lot. :-)

Rest of the ride home after Petticoat jct (which is in Washburn, TN just north of downtown). Mainly, includes Joppa Mtn.

PICTURE Story 

Joppa Mtn for a few (8) pictures. Got get so,me switchbacks and no leaf on trees time of year makes for nice pictures.

Best picture I ever took of this place (close up next picture)

A view coming down the south side of Joppa Mtn.   THAT's ALL FOLKS!!!!!

Maybe, since you like restoring stuff, but you would have a job restoring that.  :pop
