That's it Redbud! Fontana! Someone kept telling me I was wrong, but I wasn't for sure.
I live at the foot of Raccoon Mtn in Chatt and I remember going inside the mountain before 9-11 and it sure was neat. I bet Fontana would be pretty cool. It's one of the deepest lakes isn't it?

The creek crossing here, I turned around and went back up, I didn't feel too confident crossing without support



This hill wasn't that steep either or muddy;



One of many trails in Prentice Cooper;


This photo, I really like. It is from the very end of the road atop Suck Creek Mtn before they close for Turkey Repopulation/Hunting or whatever;



Puddle for variation of terrain;



The mountain in the background here is Elder Mountain, in which I live at the foot of. As the crow flies it would it be less than 10 minutes to get to my spot here; but driving-wise, more than 30 minutes;




Lots of down trees when I went up there. Actually, there was a group ride that Saturday, I was a few hours behind them, but I do remember them posting up some pics, as well as seeing some of their tracks in the mud





Did I mention; there was lots and lots of mud?






So the next day, guess who got their ears scrubbed?



Oh yes, i am fully prepared with NikWax

WhaDaHala 2012

Hey Tuna!

Thanks guy Glad you like it. I have yet to check out some more threads. But my phone is my camera and I had to dump these pics somewhere at some point.

JoeWannaB was hosting a rally at his place in Nantahala and of course, I couldn't get there til late on Sunday afternoon.
Not a soul to be found!



After taking several self shots in the mirror (rather a failed attempt to wait patiently for Shane to show up) I did get one good one, well I like it.



I put up my tent, unloaded my cases and got back on the bike.

I took a few roads, nothing to get me lost, found a few trailheads and turtleheads






Finally, a yellow GS showed up! Woot! It was Shane, bearing news that he had broken his KTM chain adjuster thingy. As well, Cuttle had to journey home for her pups. Shane and I camped out, the next morning I needed some interwebs for my work and we rode into Bryson CIty for Mountain Perks for some quiche and a delicious latte.



We went back to camp as Joe was there and leading us on a ride that was soooo much fun! A wonderful pace, in the beautiful Carolina Mountains. He took us past the Tellico Hatchery place on Otter Creek Rd








Atop Tellico Gap where the AT crosses;



Later in the day we were on this steep hill/loose rock climb, on the downhill side Joe and I waited for Shane to show up;


Joe waiting for the shot;


That never came We kept waiting & waiting, then Joe hopped on his bike and sho nuff, here comes Shane, just being camera shy I reckon.

Us Suzuki Peeps be representin' ......





Joe had to peel out soon afterwards back to Sylva. Joe led us to the gas/lunch spot;






I don't remember the road #, something with a 7 in it for sure tho. Half of it was broken asphalt/gravel, really cool. I found a good pee spot





The second half of that road was freshly paved curves and super smooth. Loved it! Then we took a right hand turn on Wayah Rd. to head to Wayah Bald.





A super sad fallen spirit ;





Lots of bumble bees love my bike and gear apparently while we were parked at the Bald;





After Wayah Bald, we hustled back towards the Nantahala Outdoor gear place to replenish my fuel. I won't go on my rant of those dudes in that store........

Improv of ramen noodles and spaghetti sauce, along with the sausage that Shane had leftover from the weekend shenanigans; and a yummy dinner was possible!

Next morning, Shane loaded up his bike & stuff. I loaded up my gear and cases, parted ways, he back towards home and I towards Bryson City for Mtn Perks and this;



With some luck and help from Shane and Kenny I finally found the home of the Buell I was wanting to look at, for a possible purchase.
He let me ride it to the Wedge and golly! I sure was nervous, I've been riding an enduro way too long. I need to get the Hawk running, expand my seating horizons. Met up with the local awesome crowd, and did get to see Fancy & Cuttle! and of course! Kenny and Bernie! Super excited I got to see Bernie!

Bernie riding the Buell;



Awesome, awesome! can't say how much and amazing how my life has led me in so many directions to such good people. I just can't express. From Alabama, Georgia DOG's and WNC I just love this community of good peeps.

Nice pics, I especially like the selfshot. Hopefully Joe will get his video up soon. I'm glad I stayed an extra day, it was good hangin' an ridin' with you! Joe really puts on a good rally. I'm already jonesin' to go again.

Oh, FS711. I couldn't remember either, had to look at a map.

You're both wrong. Terribly, terribly, wrong. Keep exploring; you'll find it. It's within 100 miles of Fontana.

Well ABHulgan, that is most helpful, considering there are several in the area. Thanks.
