There should be enough liquid sunshine and fire smoke to keep everyone smelling fresh. 50 degree water? No thanks.

Water in the river will probably be closer to 40 or even 30 then 50. We'll be lucky to get 50s for an air temp at LF in the middle of April.

You can heat water with a "Sun Shower". I had a 5 gallon size that would heat water to better than 100 degrees on a sunny day. They are still available, just not worth hauling on a bike (although they can also be used to carry potable water back to camp).

Exactly where is this? Is it in Clay county? I thought I saw a Laurel Fork road there, not too far outside of Roane County. I'm in Spencer, so it would be fairly convenient. Any challenging riding there? I've got both an XR250 and an XR400. The 250 is plated, and the 400 will be by spring. :)

Here's twigsnapper's map.

Forest Service and County roads. Great scenery. Ramps. Adult beverages.

Bikes need a plate. Don't park on the grass.

what I'm talkin' about...you can't get here from there. You have to be there from here...does that make sense?
