I took Friday off. The parent company I work for has decided to close its Knoxville’s business address and has laid off 3 out of the 5 folks that worked ouyt of this office. Luckily I can do software from anywhere so for now I still have a job. Anyway, I decided to take Friday off after the announcement on Thursday. I did some yard work around the house with Meghann since W was on his first stay over with grandma and grandpa in Townsend. This was W’s first over night, so it was a big occasion for both Meghann and I, as well as W and the grandparents. Anyway, after a couple trips to the Greenwaste Recycling Center for mulch and spreading it in the yard, Meg and I loaded up our motor bikes and headed up to Lake City to do some riding in the late afternoon.
The sky was as blue as can be and the views where incredible. We also had the opportunity to see a small herd of elk numbering around 12 a couple of times. We kept circling them on this small piece of singletrack off the Caryville Flats. It was really cool to see what very few in Tennessee have.
