We had 2 definite items on the plate: I wanted to visit Helen, Georgia to see what that was about and we had to be in West Virginia by the following Thursday afternoon to meet up with friends. They were coming in from Indiana, New York and Pennsylvania to meet up with us for a long weekend of sizzling backroad riding.
That left us 6 days to wander on our own. And it was… spectacular.
There are lots of moments and pictures to go through. In the meantime some basic trip stats until the posts get rolling.
