?

What is the nearest airport, and how far away is it?

Do you know of any dual sport or road bikes for rent in the area?

How is the fishing along there in June?

You can pick up the TAT directly south and to the southwest, both within about an hours ride. I rode the TAT to Westfest last summer with the cabin as my departure point. PM me if you need more info.

The nearest commercial airports are Little Rock to the south, about 2.5 hours. Northwest Arkansas Regional (aka WalMart International) is about 3 hrs to the west near Fayetteville. Springfield Missouri is about 3 hours to the northwest. XNA, Northwest Ark Regional actually has more service than the others. I honestly don't think there are any dual sport rentals in the region. The fishing at the cabin is good year round. June is typically better than mid and late summer as it isn't as hot and the water is still relatively cool.
PM me if you would like more info.

Chris

Thanks MAM. I'm meeting with the other riders in our group tomorrow afternoon and will suggest this as a stop. We're departing Jellico April 1 give or take a few days.

You need to saddle up that Buell and head to Ark with me when we get some warmer weather.

Aside from lots of fallen limbs the cabin escaped relatively unscathed from the ice storm. I will have it back in rental condition once power is restored and the road to the river is cleared.

Link to fishing report. http://www.blueribbonflyfish.com/reports.php

Last guests brought a boat to the cabin and had very good luck on high water in the immediate cabin area. Generation should be slowing in the next couple of weeks allowing excellent wading opportunities.
