“Time to go, meet me in 10”.

It was 6:30 AM when I got the text from Donald saying he was ready to head up to Cohutta. I wasn’t ready; nothing was packed.  I quickly gathered some gear, threw it in a messenger bag and pedaled to Donald’s loft.

To get this out of the way, buy that 40 dollar Chinese knock off bike light. I bought one, it was great, it did what I wanted it to do and was brighter than the surface of the sun. But, remember, you always get what you paid for and that is exactly what I found out on...
