Tet

Trans Eastern Trail

Current release is TETv1r1


As if we need another. We are all addicts though, could one more hurt? But, this one is with a twist. With a little sober cooperation, well maybe I should not be so narrow minded, there is enough resources here to link the beautiful terra firma avenues represented in this forum into a masterpiece. The total is worth more than the sum of the parts, I'm sure. I will reserve post two for links to various posts, files, or threads. Wanna meet me at the state line? Some guidelines;


Track logs rule:
There is just that warm and fuzzy feeling that YOU made it out alive.

Most pigs can't fly:
Let's at least give the 1/4 ton and above crowd a path.

We must hold hands:
Well, maybe a high five at the border will do when we link.

Bolt cutters are not in the average tool kit:
Doughnuts on the eighteenth hole while running from the grounds keeper is not my idea of adventure.


Track log grades:

Green-pig heaven

Blue-pigs with an attitude, thumper heaven

Black-if you can't ride it, you best be able to carry it

The goodies



The protocol for getting the file:

Fill out the form below

I send you the pdf file

You respond in the thread that you got the pdf

I send you the zipped gpx



This seems to be a bit hard for some to follow, I don't know if that is just because you don't read, or that you feel I am being too intrusive. I'll try and explain the madness behind it so that you might see where I am coming from. I make you stand on one foot and cluck like a chicken for the following reasons.


ADV username: You made it past the ADV gate keepers, that gains a certain amount of trust on my part. I prefer to keep this in the hood.

E-mail address: I will not post this as an attachment, or post a link to a dedicated server. This is between you and I, and you and I only.

First and last name: You are real, or at least I hope that you are real. I have met some of you in meatspace, and hope to meet many more. I have made what I think will be some lasting friends at this. A real name, not a screen name, is a better way to start in meatspace. The nickname I am after is the one that your SO, or your mother, calls you. That one is much more effective to use on the trail or around the campfire to heckle with.

I send the doc and you respond in the thread: Some people just don't know their e-mail address and/or have extremely fat fingers. This sequence assures that the zipped gpx file is going to the intended place and, albeit with a lot of wishful thinking, assumes that you have read the doc. Take the time to read, although there is some self indulgence on my part, the majority is there just for you. This step also automatically subscribes you to the thread I hope. If not, you need to subscribe, that is he surest way for you to receive release updates. Lastly, I've got a few n00b cherries with this step.

I send you the gpx: You, and only you.

Current release is TETv1r1

Great Idea, I take it you mean a north-south route through the eastern states?

That is totally up to the collective. I am simply trying to harbor a place that allows the different files to meet.


For instance. if you were to track to the New York border I would expect that to challenge someone to take it to Vermont, Mass, Conn, Jerz, or PA. Shake your neighbors hand so to speak.

Sure, the Florida Keys would be nice. But someone has to make it to the Flatistan border for that to happen. And, I think we are closer to the lobster traps for now.

Rob23 kinda layed the foot work for you already by drawing up the file for the Trans - Appalachian Trail. I followed a lot of robs route through pa. and into md. From there you can pretty much hook into the twvt to head further south for a much better route ( I like intothenew's route a lot), then head back towards nc. hooking back into robs file which will then lead you through the smokies, which have quite an assortment of fantastically crappy great roads. So to complete it, the only areas needed would be from georgia on down to fl. and north of maine...maybe link it into nova scotia and new foundland if ya wanna add a bit more excitement..lol.

Is this where you draw that conclusion from?

I doubt retraining would be necessary... You may have more company than you know...

Might be a good time to finish off an ailing KLR... , or more smartly... beg to borrow a spare machine from a navigator.... Will try to hook up. I've been out of the game a bit too long recovering from a minor injury, mostly to my pride. I know the Camp Creek area pretty well!

Interesting post... here is my contribution

Raid RidAventure is a road that circles the Quebec north of the St-Laurence river. 2300 km of gravel roads, wildlife reserves, natural parks, outfitters, ATV trail and old railways.

This road is easily feasible on big bikes when dry, but sand is some places quite present, the road is becoming difficult in wet weather, as are all roads of adventure ... knobbies are not an option here...





Attached gpx file is the track I brought back from my last june expedition.

I ran the TET-NJ backwards from Frenchtown to Titus Mill Rd (just across Rt 31 from Woosamonsa). There's one bridge still out on the route (I'm betting you know but'll send you the location).

I musta done something wrong when I loaded it...the ride terminated at Titus Mill, weird. I'll run more of it when I can. It was nutz cold this morning man, wow.
