– went to a brunch spot called sunny point. Was good. Then hard 2 hours of people watching in downtown Asheville 

– hippy vibe is stronggggg

– rode blue ridge parkway from east side of Asheville going west bound for over 2 hours. No traffic. Was some of the most fun riding I’ve ever done. Long sweepers. 4-6k elevation 

– flirted with a German girl that lives in Australia that I thought was Russian 

– stopped on blue ridge to do a swimming hole and waterfall called skinny dip falls. The water was freezing. Paralyzing. Prob 45 degrees

– rode to tail of the dragon to camp for the night… then do the dragon in the morning

– drank a bottle of whiskey
