>Good Golly Miss Molly…. SPRING IS SPUNG!
Today, I got out to ride.  I had a few house mouse things to do in the morning.  It was early afternoon about 1:15 PM before I left for the day.  How wonderful.  I rode south toward Erwin.  I saw roads that shot off off the main road that I usually take….(main road)…. I had never been on these off shoot roads.  That changed today.  Problem is, I don’t have a clue where the heck I was, or how I got there.  I’m not totally sure I will be able to find my way back to some of ride.  But…for now folks…see what I found!

It’s a 1929 Model A.  This yard had several in all manner of repair and refurbishing. It’s all this shop does. Breathe life into the Model A.

Model A Macs…. cool name or what?

Inside the shop I found this display! I love this!  The owner is a MX racer…well he was…

  Here is some rust…but it’s all here, it’s not BONDO…it’s real!  It’s AMAZING! 

Here are some Model A parts… it’s cool and it’s rusting… but again… where are ya gonna find this stuff?

Here’s an engine…

After a bit, I hang the camera over my shoulder and continue on. I soon find myself traveling next to the Nolichucky River

This river is a great rafting and Kayaking river! Here is a shot of the fencing that keeps rock slides from covering the road….

A mountain rural cemetery

A cool little restaurant up in the hills…food was good…and HOT.

I went into the bathroom here at the restaurant…and graffiti etched into the paint on the door.

The Nolichucky River once more…

I’m outta here friends….
Thanks for coming!
