I received the files Chip, thank you!

I look fwd to riding some of it this spring/summer. I've always wanted to explore the Buffalo Creek area, and noticed it was an area that your tracks covered.

thanks again,
John in Roane County

Sorry for the slow response,broke my air card thingy.

The doc file I got( I thought) was a bunch of
coordinates so I dumped it. Sorry.

Hopefully gonna make it that way in the spring. Some
friends are wondering if they should take the ktm 450/525's or
their dr650's. I figured the actual dirtbikes might be a better choice
as we're going thru some of the hatfield/mccoy stuff.
What do you think?
Thanx

Tony

TWVT v2 doc

I post the doc below for reference for those that may not have read or received the file. I will elaborate on any point, just ask.




Hello my friends,


I have spent 4-5 years on this project, lost countless hours of sleep, and enjoyed every single minute of it. We have a beautiful state and I hope to show those not so familiar that is the case.

First, this is offered as reference material only. YOU have to use your head while out on the bike in any circumstance, this is certainly no different. Of the track logs supplied, I have personally run every inch on a loaded R1200GSA or a loaded DR650. Sometimes the weather cooperated, sometimes it didn't. I have made every attempt to make this “Big”bike friendly and still make it fun for any dual sport. In the primary tracks(denoted TWVT #),every track at the time I ran it and to the best of my knowledge, was a state, county, or forest service maintained(or not so maintained) road. This is not necessarily true on the Logan connector(denoted TWVT LC #). Stuff happens though, it is YOUR responsibility to obey all laws and signs.

I ask that you don't distribute or post the file or your track logs.


The tracks are color coded.

Green = easiest

Blue = moderate

Red = Hatfield McCoy(permit required)
info can be found here ( http://www.trailsheaven.com/default.aspx )



Front Royal Connector(denoted TWVT FRC #)

My intent here is to connect to logs provided by Rob Magara for VA, MD, PA, and NJ. He has a wealth of material for those states as well as WV. You can find that information at the links below.


http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=356882


And e-mail him direct for the New Jersey section. rob23@gpsroutebuilder.com


The road past Hawk campground is controlled by the USFS and seasonally closed. I think it is closed February through April. The link below is to a USFS page where you can download a MVUM. Refer to it before you run that section and it may save backtracking from a locked gate.

http://www.fs.fed.us/r8/gwj/maps_brochures/mvum.shtml

I have included one route that I have not run in this section. WVDOT is on the move in that area, corridor H they call it, they're paving paradise. Any help around Forman would be greatly appreciated.



Logan Connector (denoted TWVT LC #)


DO NOT venture into the HM sections without a permit.

I intend on running west out of the Gilbert area into Kentucky for the next release. South of Gilbert is mostly mining, logging, and gas right-of-ways. These have been open and used by the public for as long as I have been riding(35 years). They are not state, or county, or USFS roads. Most have some activity of the heavy equipment kind going on. Hatfield McCoy is actively pursuing right-of-ways in much of this area. Be extremely careful in this section.



I will almost certainly make a change in the eastern panhandle by this spring. With that said, I welcome any comment on that note or anything else for that matter. I ask you to send me any POIs or alternate track logs after your ride. Things can always improve.
Please ride in small groups and behave, especially in the populated places.


Second, have FUN!

If you run only the tracks I have supplied, the DR is adequate. And, I would venture to say much easier on your deriair. In the HM, I have run everything but single track on the GS and DR. I certainly prefer my DRZ400 stripped on the single track, with Metzeler Uni-Cross paws. The tracks supplied through the HM are the easiest and most efficient through.


I've never ridden one of the Katooms. Are you gonna haul up here, or ride?

Chip, got the files. Thanks a lot. It looks like a lot of great riding. This will definitely help with my trip planning in the spring. I just wish it was not so far off!

No,no,no. My latest excuse is Mongolian "Shine". And it's pretty damn good by the way.

I posted here, http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...=408298&page=2 before I saw that you had already posted there!

Thanks

Thanks for the files, Chip. I'll take a look at connecting to the tracks I have in SE Virginia and WNC.

Great work!
