Where?

I'm in Raleigh, NC during the week. Have an apartment here but I'm from Milton, NC and go there on weekends. Bike's in Milton right now. Don't get to ride much down here in Raleigh except short rides. Take longer rides up in Milton. If I keep my bike down here in the winter, I don't get to ride it on longer rides on the weekends. Can't count on good weatehr to ride it home and back on Sundays. Love to ride in the mountains. I go to the mountains of Virginia every chance I get cause its the closest but I want to ride down in SW NC and around Boone area. I went to school at ASU and my son's at Western Carolina now. Like to catch up with some of y'all sometime but my time's limited for going that far. It's about 5 hours or so from Milton to Culowhee and 6 or so from Raleigh, I think. I'm going to Ironhorse for the Vstrom gathering East in May. Maybe I'll run into some of you then.
