We had a great day, breakfast and a run down 281 (Canada Rd) with Justin. Then we ate lunch with Tullie's first cousin that lives outside of Millspring. Found a good county road on the way Holbert Cove Rd just outside of Millspring. Then Tullie's cousin told us about Green Cove Rd that runs by the Green River, he said it's the crookedest road in NC. Mostly flat by the river until the climb up, maybe 2 miles of 90 degree switchbacks every 60-100 yards. It was awesome. Made it home at 8:10pm.

Car has been washed, vacuumed, 303-ed, shin etsu-ed, and rests comfortably.

See you all in the SPRING.
How about the stripper we sent you home with... did ya wash, vac, 303'd her (or was it an "it"?)... and is she/he/it resting comfortably?

Dang.... and all we had was I-75 at 85 mph all the way home!

Wish we could trade a few miles on the expressway for some curves...
