    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Sounds like a great time. A coworker and her husband did that ride a couple of years ago, said it was a blast.

    I've been a couple of times passing through in the car. It's one twisty devil! It's fairly regular that I hear on the local news that someone on a bike has met their maker on the dragon. Usually they cross the center line or run off the road. It's a nice drive with Fontana Dam and some really nice overlooks.

    My BIL and his neighbor rode the dragon a month ago or so...said it was great and a bit scary sometimes. They took a ton of video but haven't uploaded any of it anywhere yet.
