April 26 - 28, 2013 was the ADV Old School Spring Fling held at the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground in Cruso, NC. Our weather pattern for the last few weeks had been perfect camping weather Monday through Thursday and then a cold front would come through bringing rain for the weekend. This week proved no different. Many folks came despite the rain and some even came from as far away as Canada! Those are some hardy boys up there! As I mentioned there was a lot of rain so I left my camera equipment in the bags for the most part. I did manage to get a few shots, however.
This was my first trip in my new tent and the tent held up well. Despite three inches of rain over the weekend it kept me dry! As you can see I also rode my airhead since this was an "Old School" rally.
One of our Canadian friends had starter troubles on the way down. He had a new starter Fed-Exed to the campground and installed it Saturday morning.
We kept an eye on the Pigeon River as it kept creeping up!
On Sunday I rode home in pouring rain. The bike was ridden hard and put up wet. No problem with the equipment and the bike ran like a dream. Hopefully the weather will get better next month!
