Knoxville's own singer/songwriter RB Morris once said of his city, "Knoxville, TN: The Bermuda Triangle of the Appalachians." From what I can tell, nobody really knows what the hell he meant by that. From my own experiences I've gathered over the handful of times I've been to Knoxville, I tend to agree with the man. In a sense, this past weekend we were stuck in a Bermuda Triangle of our own up in Cleveland.
Every day we got closer to leaving for Knoxville, the weather seemed to get closer and closer to "complete shit", both in NE Ohio and Tennessee. Finally throwing in the towel and putting our stubbornness to bed over a few Spinners, we decided there wasn't much of a chance of us escaping the springtime winter weather we've become so accustomed to here by the lake.
To me, it seems the weekend we didn't spend in Knoxville turned out to be a success in the end. We all managed to get some extra hanging out time in over the weekend and everyone managed to ride a whole bunch over the weekend. All in all, it could have been worse. The following photos are some shots I took before hours at CHENgA II on Friday. Paul, Kevin, Johnny and myself had ourselves a damn fine time in an empty park. Till next time, Knoxville. Hopefully mother natures isn't such a wretched bitch.
8+ hours of being at Chenga is almost too much for one day.
