Dual Sport trip in Ellijay, GA
This is very last minute notice, but I wanted to put the feelers out. I have a dual sport trip planned for Ellijay, GA this weekend. It is a pre-planned 280 mile loop starting and ending in Ellijay over the course of 2.5 days. We begin riding at 9am this Friday morning and finish Sunday afternoon. We will motocamp in state parks each night. The majority of the route is fire and forest service roads. I've ridden this twice and I can guarantee you it is a helluva good time.
So far we have 3 confirmed advriders including myself.
The route will start in Ellijay, continue north to the green marker in Tennesse, head back south on Saturday and ride the orange route, camp in Unicoi state park on day 2 and head back to Ellijay on day 3.
PM me if you are interested.

If you need a basecamp other than Unicoi on day 2 let me know. I am where your top right green marker is....
Also the light blue line South of 76 that is straight is the AT....
I wonder where that road goes?
