were several great bicycling opportunities near Johnson City. One
favorite , the
was an old railroad grade turned bicycling trail from Abingon to White Top
Station - 34 miles one-way.
The near by ETSU campus and the VA Hospital provided scenic areas with minimal traffic to contend with,
The city built a bicycling/jogging trail generally following the State of Franklin road from the main Hospital to the K-Mart area in North Johnson City.
And the I-26 Interstate highway while it was being built, but before it opened to traffic was a great ride from Erwin to Sam's gap on the NC border.
Accompanied by Todd and Lori, we rented a beach house on NC's Outer Banks
(north end of Avon on Angelfish Ln.).
In '94 Joyce and I had explored the length of Outer Banks in my Nissan Pickup, but this was the first time we rented a beach house and stayed in one place for a week. Thus began our tradition for yearly beach vacations that continues to the present day.
