I have no idea why the forest road was blocked. Considering the amount of rain the area has had, it would not surprise me if the road was washed out. Not a big deal though, the detour was enjoyable, and if you think you are going to be able to travel extensively, especially on forest roads, without hitting detours, you may as well just park the bike now.



Did you re-route the GPX files to accommodate for the detours?

I did all my re-routing on the fly. I would just zoom out on the GPS, then find a way to connect where I was to where the route went after the closed road.

This ride report is amazing. Can't wait for some warmer weather to do something like this.

Thanks. I don't know that I wild call the report amazing, but the ride was pretty damn awesome. Unfortunately, I will not be getting in a multi-week ride in this year. However, the wife now has an off-pavement worthy bike, so there are certainly going to be more reports in the future.

What a wonderful ride report. I really enjoyed your writing and the beautiful photos. I'm planning a trip to some of the areas you covered and you've given me a lot of good ideas, so thanks for that!

What fantastic looking country. I am off to Alaska this year but this looks like a real strong option for next year.
Have done some winter vacationing in Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina and have always loved the area.

TeT

Thanks for the great adventure with excellent photos sir, I followed your link to the Tet creator to start the process of getting the route, I would love to do this this spring or summer 2015. All I need is a 990 now.

The 990 is a great choice for most of the TeT. There are some places that a big bike is quite the handful. Chip did include big bike bypasses in the route, though I chose not to use them. Know your limits and ride within them. There are lots of places where you can expect not to see another person for quite a long time.

Be patient with Chip on getting the routes out to you. He has been on a hiatus for a bit, though I hear that he should be getting back to it soon.
