Great Cherohala Story
So today me, my wife, my buddy and his wife were out on Beemers. We rode up to the Lost Sea. This is a must when you visit Western NC and Eastern TN.
On the way home we decided to take the Cherohala. There was a bicycle race on the Skyway today and figured at 1700 the bike would be heading West.
First let me set up the story:
The Cherohala has speed limits ranging from 30MPH in TN to 45MPH in NC.
We are on the TN side and I think the area we were in was 40MPH.
I was in front doing about fifty, there was a Ford Tauras between us.
I look down in my mirror and to my astonishment, there is a early ninties Mitsubishi Eclipse passing my buddy.
Passing him in the grass on the right side of the road. Then he passes the Ford. Then he passed me.
Did I mention we were in a curve?
If it doesn't get better... Remember, you really can not pass in the west bound lane, note: double yellow line, but also there are sh1t loads of bicyclist over there.
Now the Ford is passing me. In the other lane, with oncoming bicycles.
What in the world are these people thinking?
We make it another couple miles and who do you suppose is broke down in the middle of the road?
You got it the to goobers that just past us in the grass.
It was all fun for them, they toasted us with their beers as we pasted.
All I can still think is WoW!
I have done an seen some stupid stuff, but this has got to top it.
Be cautious out there when you see those Monroe County tags.
