For the Flea Market - we'll just use the very long covered sidewalk area where most of the bikes are parked. Just set you stuff out or ask Ken or Terry to model your gear.

Tock tick - 6:30ish

I hope to make it up to the Hole in the Wall for breakfast ~9:00 Saturday morning.

Hurricane cleanup continues:



I estimate I have chipped ~2000 pounds of oak in the past 2 weeks, requiring disassembling the chipper/shredder to sharpen the blades. With sharp blades, the thing once again hungrily sucks in branches. This thing is the scariest piece of equipment I have ever used, demanding even greater respect than a chain saw.



Back to the yard to chip some more wood....


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.

Last fall, the distiller heard a knock on the back of the facility. Knowing that there were hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of product in the building, he grabbed his shotgun and opened the door. This big guy was standing there:




The big stranger introduced himself: "Hi, I'm Zac, your neighbor from down the road." The owner invited him in, they tasted some of the freshly distilled product, and Zac offered to buy the entire first run of production, then asked if he needed a financial backer. Stillhouse Creek re-opened last month with a new sign:




I still don't know if they are able to sell to the public, as apparently the liquor control people have to approve the label for a bottle before it can be sold, so with the name change, new labels had to be submitted for approval. But, it's a great ride from Blairsville.

Slept long and hard last night. Got everything unloaded. Returned the trailer. Went to the local Fall Festival in town and had a pork burger. Getting ready to remove the fuel tank. Thanks to everyone who assisted me when trying to make the bike run as well as all of the others who were concerned and wished me well. As soon as a correct diagnosis of the problem is found, I will post the results.

In the mean time, I'm getting a quiz together regarding Thursday nights parking lot gathering.

We got off to a late start this morning, arriving at the Hole in the Wall ~9:25. Nice, relaxed breakfast, then because we didn't see a crowd at the Best Western, and because the skies were bluer to the west, we headed for Blue Ridge, intending to get my espresso fix at L&L Beanery. Alas, L&L is no more, replaced by a sports bar called The Vault. No espresso.

Just as we were backing out of a parking space, up came Bernie, Dave, and some other familiar faces whose names I don't remember. We chatted a while, then Pam and I headed on foot for Main Street, where L&L Beanery had a branch shop. Also out of business, replaced by Das Kaffee Haus, which seemed to be run by a real German (or 2).

Homeward bound via 60 through Suches, then cut through the R Ranch at the Rock Pile, Black Mountain Road, to Camp Wahsega Road to Oak Grove, and finally home. Nice day for a ride.

There appears to have been an update to the BBS software overnight, as the user interface is a little different today for Active Threads and Active Posts. Only low ASCII characters now?, or is this a forum settings issue?

We stopped by Z. Brown yesterday afternoon, and the gates were closed, so I guess they aren't yet really open under the new management.
