Ponytail Dave called to let me know that he was at the ONLY road crossing in the Smokies. US 441/Newfound Gap(Gatlinburg, TN). He was joking that he stopped for a break and was talking to a group who had motorcycles. Asked if any of them wanted to trade just for a bit~the bike for the backpack and they all said NO WAY MAN!!! He said he tried. He sees all the bikes when in towns and is missing his Road King and Shovelhead. Good thing we had a few days out on the bikes up here in the north country before he left. Mother nature had granted us some super warm days. Wish they would come back.
Says he just encounter the best views so far of the trip. Says when we get the pics they just won't do it justice. Simple breathtaking. He didn't say quite where he was.
He stayed at Peck's Corner Shelter. This grassy area was used in the 1800's for grazing cattle.
Good news his knee is feeling better. Bad news he says he has a blister the size of Rhode Island near the ball of his left foot. Been putting some suave and mole skin on it(THANK YOU TENDER CORP) and then for some added cushion a band-aide or 2 and some duck tape to keep it all secure. Duck tape works on everything!
That it for now,
