Since the start of this great country, scouts have played an important part of our history and safe being of future trail blazers…Therefore I am pleased to report that I have arrived at Ironhorse Lodge, site of STC II , the roads and folks along the way where friendly…so proceed on to Western Northern Carolina.. I await your arrival.., other Curve Cowboys have arrived also.
Several nice additional to Ironhorse awaits you, the pool table has been moved to an upstairs loft overlooking the lodge dinning and big screen viewing area. Campsites have been improved as well and the back porch has been extended…
Also you TEXAS guys, John and Charlene visited the Hill Country during March and sent back two 4 foot Metal Texas Stars to be displayed here.. Charlene told me this afternoon that she was impressed by the display of both the Star and Texas flags at home out that way…
Nice, chamber of commerce weather today, around 80 degrees and sunshine, we have a 30-40 % chance of free bike wash later this week..
The Scout wasn’t the first to arrive, Yarko ( from Chicago) and a friend came in yesterday, they are out riding and another guy, not signed up (but that’s ok)… Larry (hunter?) on 06 LT from Michigan…
Yarko must have taken “my last to sign up and arrive cut the firewood post to heart”… he is the first to arrive…
John Powell is doing OK after his “get off” this weekend, totaled the LT, had good gear on and it showing very little damage, helmet full face helmet (skymax?) looks new, few scratches on the back… accident happen on 90 degree curve in route to the Deal Gap, a 10 MPH curve, met a car pulling boat, he doesn’t remember much of the accident, bruise chest, maybe from the XM radio mount, cracked ribs… bike totaled, about 8,000 damage to car and boat… he is a lucky guy… and a great host and owner here at Ironhorse… BTW the windshield is still working..will raise up and down..
Ok, I got to go and scout the dinner tonight and then the CBS (chocolate brownie sundae). This scout business isn’t so bad…somebody has to do it…
Come on…it’s safe in thm thar hills….
