Got Four Wheel Drive?

Driving down Green River road last night I noticed the roads were wet from a thunderstorm. I got about a mile and a half from the trailhead when my forward progress in the car was stopped. This tree had snapped off like a toothpick about twenty feet up on the trunk.

David George was there as I was heading off to try and catch the others for the ride. When I pulled up into the lot, I tried to convince the others that I had ridden up Caesar’s Head from Greenville but they weren’t having it.

After our ride, the tree had already been cut out and luckily our cars were still there. Good ride last night, it was good to ride moist trails instead of dry dusty ones.

SORBA meeting tonight at Cleveland park by the Dog Park.

Pisgah ride this Saturday, if you are ambitious, meet at the North Mills River bridge at 7:00. If you are less ambitious, meet at Trace Ridge parking lot at 10:00.
