A day at NASSIR

http://moonshiner28.com/moonshiner28_maps.html

This is where I plan to spend one of my days at NASSIR. Now the question is, do I just turn around and ride it back the other way or do I find another route back.OH WELL, I have 50 something days to figure that out.

Thanks Bob, I was looking at that and wondered if 1310 was a good road.

You could run 64 to 129, be considerably quicker. 1310 is a slow road

Thanks for posting this route.Wife and I rode to Cherokee,NC in 2003 but i don't know much about the area except what i have read.This looks like a real good ride that can easily be done in a day that we will be doing too one of the days while there.I clicked-on "about the ride" and think i will take Donna under the falls. Don't know if it will apply to her but i am part Cherokee.LoL

Hey John, your 28 route map has the same problem....No return route But what fun could we have if we didn't scour the road maps ahead of time and ponder all of the possibilities

My rule has always been "never take the same route back that you took out unless absolutely necessary"!!!
