Meadows of Dan
I like to get up in the Meadows of Dan area, Tuggles Gap, and so on and ride whenever I can. Went up there last weekend and circled back through Ferrum and Gretna, then home to Milton, NC (Just over the state line near Danville, VA). I'll have to give you a holler sometime and meet up with you. I've heard about the Back of the Dragon and want to ride it sometime but it's a long way up there and back in a day for me. Have to wait til sometime that I have a weekend. I was doing some work up in Tazewell many years ago and drove my car over the ridge from Abbington or somewhere just east of Abbington to Richlands is it? Anyway, I was able to read my own license tag on several of the curves. I was on an 88 Toyota Camry and several times had to go in 1st gear and turn the steering wheel all the way to the stops. Then I'd meet a coal truck going the other way and I haven't figured out yet how they managed that trick. I'd like to ride that road sometime on the Wee. If you're coming down my way sometime, my email address is "firstname.lastname@example.org".
