  • I watched some of his video in Cades Cove a minute ago. I think there were two on YouTube. Different months of the year.
  • mytopo.com has this map...
  • Ok. Watched a pair of vids one I sped thru. A DF’r rode the whole loop. Weaving thru stopped cars to see horses. About a 1/2 hr video. Read on travel advisor of two short but steep hills and a pair of descents that some walk their bikes down. Looks …
  • Thanks for the map ma’am.
  • We r still throwing the idea around. Would love to use our existing open trailer. Curb weight of a 6/12 closed trailer is 1032 lbs. I doubt mine weighed that loaded on the trip north.
  • If this is for daFinn60, last time we drove thru CC was 15 years back. Don’t remember elevation changes. I thought you would meet us there and pull us like water skiers up the tougher slopes.?
  • Back to large leaf blowers, Leelenau County had some B-I-G spiders in 1986. My ex worked up in TVC and stayed in a condo with friends that summer. At night these monsters creeped into the security light patch outside their door. I was on the second …
  • Looks like 7 long spots in the lot there. Don’t know when this was taken from the Soyuz though...
  • Been there recently? Does the lot have room for trailers? Can I back it into the grass?
  • We only rode twice in the days up north. She went back to work this afternoon. I want to ride the next few days. In the 50’s they say. Would love to do Cades Cove in June but if we can’t bring a trailer into the park, well....glad to hear you came o…
  • Not a lot of parking at Cade’s Cove lot of cycling I read. Congested many times. Hmmm May avoid park and save time money and heartburn.
  • I went north for nine days and when we left on 10-7, this was down near the Yucatán. No paper and no tv for a week. I read today how it reached Cat 4 before landfall on 10-10. Did this surprise everyone, including the weather channel professionals?
  • Been so long ago at least 15 years we just were talking about it. Back when I was still shooting film. It would be fun to see again. Going to be in Loo-Vulle next June for my nieces’ high school graduation ( we hope ). It wouldn’t be that far fr…
  • Just watched a video where they said the loop is 11 miles. Is it really that far??
  • It’s been a while since we drove the loop in Cades Cove. Is it hilly? I don’t remember. Maybe there is a YouTube vid depicting the track.
  • Here is some color.
  • Where’s yer helmet...?
  • Aluminum trailer we use now is never close to load needed to stop the dribbling down the highway. And you feel it in the Fjord. I’m sure the larger trailer will do the same even though it is heavier. Uncle said to go find my cousin Dave’s large sing…
  • We are seriously thinking of an enclosed 6x12 trailer single axle. J hooks on side walls for yaks and trikes on floor. Still room for cooler and junk. Side door plus ramp door in back. 6’ high inside. Had one ordered then the crash happened so we …
  • No mucho gear. 6 cyl. 3.0. FWD. said she wasn’t thinking of the trike when she chose this one. No hitch system. So the F150 will tote the trikes in a trailer when we ride.
  • Here’s wife’s van after. She was happy her Rover wasn’t in the back. Though I doubt it would have sustained injury.
  • Ok. We hope to sea some guud color. Rains may keep the camera under wraps for a few days. I need a raincoat for the Canon while on the tripod.
  • Pictures from who? From where? Here is an aerial I did nine years ago when I had some pocket change to get a Cessna to go up. Family cabin is on far left. Property owned goes left to that road. Road is paved for about a mile. All kind of trucks go 4…
  • Had a woman on a df cross a street in front of us without braking. Didn’t look like she even peeked for traffic coming her way on that one way street. She was on the bike path. We had the green light. I was bout 1/4 block from her. ?????....

  • Thank ye. Rain or not we are oughta here. She wanted to ride today, but after she ran an errand, her chest n shoulder said nope. Maybe colors will be guud up there. A lot of rain north it seems. Fire danger will be low.
  • We bought a 2002 Ford Escape at the dealership. It’s just a people mover. No hitch. Not big enough to trike in back without taking seat down and steering arms off. She hasn’t riden any by herself since we bought the trikes last spring. We go…
  • Muskegon. She had her 9 year old nephew in the van. Passenger seat, other side. He might have died if he had been sitting behind her. He had distracted her. Luckily that slider door behind her worked sporadically. Passenger slider worked so he used …
  • Saw a rider behind me on the path last evening. Had to have been half mile. Soon closed on me. I thought it was the car that had parked along the path at the last road crossing. Was that yellow chartreuse color. Turned out to a TT trike. He had a ve…
  • Forecast all of next week is rain here. Wife still wants out of town for a week. Sept 22 she was t-boned and Windstar was totaled. Still can’t work. Back chest and shoulder bruised from seatbelt. She thinks she can pedal in a week. Hmmm. So trikes…
  • I read, maybe here, that they r available for motocycles. We have a Harley dealer here. $200 dollah probably...
