Third Saturday, now! (Not a whole lot has been happening during the week, besides working and the odd bit of exploring.)
Robb and I were planning to do a ride and maybe a hike or something when he idly commented, "We should have planned on going camping." To which I replied, "It's only 11am. Let's just... go camping." And so we did.
We (Robb) got everything packed up for some good wholesome car camping, drove about 30 min and set up camp in the Mills River area, on 1206/Yellow Gap Rd, in a free camping spot. (FREE CAMPING!)
After we staked out a spot, we went out for a long ride. Well, it was long enough for me, at least, at about four hours. The ride had all sorts of the great kind of stuff I moved down here for.
Some adventurous terrain (though still not quite as wild as Laurel Mountain/Pilot Rock when I last saw it.)
(+ an owl and a big nasty millipede that squirmed every which way when I picked it up)
At the end of the day, we ate chips and salsa and spaghetti squash, and drank beer and Blackberry Sparks (I couldn't help myself, ok?!) Relaxing around (and messing with) the fire was the order of the evening.
Tomorrow, the Sunday activities!
