You should go. It's an easy hike, and a very easy drive. First two big bridges on that FSR are newly built. Immediately after crossing the third (and old) bridge, you'll spot the trail head on the left. Walk for 5-10 minutes down the trail, and a spur cuts back down the hill to your left side down to the falls. Maybe another 5 minutes walk... A huge hemlock fell and smashed some of the stairs leading down, but you can make it fairly easily.

215 is a great road... May still find a way to bring the supermoto if the car isn't up and running at that point.

Supermotos give me half a husky. Maybe I need to take the truck and toss the xt250 in the back.

I'm half tempted to throw the mountain bike in the car. However, that would leave literally no cargo space because Fiesta. Maybe I won't.


Also, what's the gas situation down there? I keep hearing things about shortages.

It's a bunch of morons that ran to the gas station and filled up every car, truck, riding lawnmower, milk jug, and fish tank they owned because they don't possess the critical thinking skills to understand that there wasn't a fuel shortage, just a distribution hiccup.

Currently, pretty much every station in town is out of fuel, but we're expecting deliveries the middle of this week. Should be straightened out before y'all get up here.

I figured as much. I remember when Katrina hit every station in Moorseville and Statesville being out of fuel. Those that had it wanted $8 a gal for it.

Granted Katrina was a different situation.

Ia there any good riding? Putting a bike on the roof of the wagon would probably knock a few MPG's off, but heh, if I was worried about that I'd drive the TDi.

I guess more pertinent, if there is good riding, would we really feel like doing it?

There's great riding. I've got a friend who's a semi-pro mountain biker. I'll ask him for suggestions.

I don't have a rack for the fiesta yet. The bike will fit in the car if I pull off both wheels, but then I barely have enough room to change my mind. I think i'm gonna hold off on the bike this time around.

Also, hungover riding is not fun

Nick advised you check out The Hub in Pisgah Forest. Kind of the jumping off point for excellent trail riding in the area.

You could rent a bike from Pisgah if you wake up and decide you want to go.
