Up bright and early to get on the road for a long day's riding.
Nice cup of coffee and toast with Tom & Gillian this morning before heading off.
Unfortunately it started to rain just as Tom was driving me back to my bike.

After that, it was back to the RV. Our plan is to head to Asheville tomorrow.
