Blackbeard's Permanent / the Vacation Edition

Greetings from Hatteras Island where the surf is fantastic in advance of Hanna.

I rode down with Chuck on our dueling Coho bikes. A fine time was had by all and Chuck filed an excellent report, so I'll take a blog vacation. Chuck's report is here.

In the meantime, here are a few pix from the ride.

I snapped this shot 5 blocks from home, where we camped out under a gas station for 90 minutes, waiting for a monster cell to pass.

Water water everywhere. Chuck grabs a drink before we get rolling.

I took a picture of this tree in Bath after riding all night. I think the tree was delirious.

Here's Chuck riding up in Bath. Notice his Supernova E3 is on. We both rode with our lights on during the day. They're visible for a half-mile up the road.

Everything in Bath, Blackbeard's home and the state's oldest incorporated town, is named Ye Olde, including the liquor store.

Photo retouched in Picassa.

A break at the Hyde County line.

A view from the saddle. The last stretch features some bumpy pavement.
