I'm Out of here! Well, not here, but .....

My son and I are taking a "Cats in the Cradle" trip. He becomes a Dr. in a few week and is going to get uber busy, so we are taking a week and heading to Bryson City, NC for 4 days of mountain bike on the Tsali Trails, and a couple day of whitewater on the Nantahala and the Ocoee. Then a couple days in Asheville, NC to see how many different NC micro-brews we can hunt down

My trusty steed is loaded and ready. Just need to throw the cooler and clothes in and we are out of here in about 15 hours


I have my pocket Canon SD1100, Pentax WP (waterproof) and my OS Helmet Video Cam packed. Hope to come back with lots of pics and video.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.
