Mossy Crk (inmate) tried to get something similar started, but it died out after awhile. I believe it was called "Tales From the Great State of East TN"

I think because the fringes of our game area are so far apart it would be harder to make a centralized social riding/eating agenda work that would be inclusive. We run 230 miles or so from the south west corner to the north east corner of the gaming area.

There is a sign for trail 81 off of the Smith Mtn Road (aka 80)

Those National Geographic maps are pretty nice. Might just have to order one of them.

Yep, you'll need several. I have most of the maps for this area. I gotta find more time to use them....

In addition to the outfitter/hiking places, the Ft. Loudoun gift shop has several. Tellico Moto has some too but be quick, he's closing soon.

For you Garmin GPS equipped bikers, I have a GDB file with a multitude of tracks and waypoints of the gravel roads and motorcycle trails in the southern portion of the Cherokee National Forest. If you want a copy PM me with your email address and I'll send you a copy. It's made to be read by garmin software and uploaded to a garmin (track reading) GPS.

I have maps 781 and 784. They cover pretty much that whole area around Tellico. I bought mine at a hiking store. I would like to buy several more but these can cover most day rides for me. I love going down these service roads and the coming to an intersection and looking at the map to figure out where your at. It's not quite as much fun the next time through when you know your way :)Even if I had GPS, (i do on my phone when I have service which is never in these areas) I still like the comfort of a good map and compass

I'm riding a DRZ that's just kickstart, so no battery to hook up gadgets. Maps are good.

Is there a running thread for getting together to ride in this area? Similar to the Chattanooga and MidTN threads?
If you haven't heard about it yet - March Moto Madness in Tellico Plains. Gathering of ADV riders from all over the country.

I'm kinda old fashioned like that too and enjoy just using a regular map. I've also got 781, 784, 229, and maybe 785 and 780 or 782. Yeah, I'm a map nerd.

But since I do keep my GPS for those... "the map doesn't show anything like this, where the crap am I?!" moments.... PM sent. :)



And in case anyone is wondering... these are the Nat Geo maps:

I've heard and would like to go, but have family B'days that weekend. I might be able to get down there for a day ride, if that's even an option for a noob. Also been pondering the upcoming Beaver rally or the one at LBL. drm here is a long time friend and we've been talking about a riding weekend so I'm leaning toward joining him at LBL. Assuming I get permission from the boss...
