After running over to Cherokee to pickup a t-shirt for the wife, I worked my way over to NC-209 and rode up to Hot Springs then on to Erwin and Unicoi. Then I got on to I-26 and took that to Weber City where I picked up US-58 East to I-81. Finally it was time to get on the slab for the ride home. I arrived at 0645 hours the next morning.

It was a good day with19.5 hours in the saddle
(801 miles according to Google) including fuel and meal stops. Too slow a pace for a SS1K but that never was my intention. I just didn't want to waste money on a motel when I could go home and sleep in my own bed.


I can't wait for EOM 2014 so I can do it all again.

This was my first EOM, THANKS to everyone that helped put it on, I had a great time and meet some nice people.

As George(Cota95)said we made it home on Wednesday.


Hello all,

We just got back this evening from EOM and doing a weeks vacation down in North Carolina. No dramatic events just a nice relaxing vacation. Added a couple of more states to my roster while down there. Gasoline $2.98 down in Gorgia, you can't beet that. It is still hovering around $3.50 around here in the commonwealth. It was nice to see some FJR folks again at the banquet and I am sorry I didn't have a chance to ride with any of you folks this time around. It may be a good thing cause I usually push the limits anyway. We found some really nice waterfalls and some great roads.

Till next year,

Dave & Ann
