For all the east coast guys - how about a run in the mountains of Tennessee? I was there about 2 months ago for the Rosser Roundup and the trails are awesome! I figure Tennessee is a central location along the east coast so why don't we get some guys together that can't make the many trips that are continually held out west. I was thinking about a First of the year run. So, How about it?

Kyle,

I was gonna go to the tellco run as well. I finally gave up because the plans were sketchy. I wasn't about to drive 16hrs and not hook up w/ the crew. I think it was a good idea to bail. I STILL haven't heard anything about the trip.

Depending on my work schedule, a run in Tennesee might work out great for me. What kind of trails are there? I'm still pretty much stock, so if the trails are real rough, I ain't going to make it.

The trails of Tennessee are very much like that of Tellico. While there are some very steep/rocky runs, there are also some very easy passes. The terrain is very wet, rocky, and steep embanked trails. I will submit some maps/photos of the trails later. As for Tellico, my trailer was stolen three days before the Friday I was supposed to head for Tellico. I couldn't find/borrow a trailer to attend. I think that due to the sketchy plans, most people pulled out of the run.

I would be VERY interested in a TN trip. Where exactly are you talking about? I live in Dallas but have a seven year old son in McMinnville and would love to take him. I am bringing him back to TX for Christmas but will be visiting him in Feb for the President's Day three day weekend. Would anyone be interested in that weekend???
And once again, exactly where in TN are you talking about?

edit: just found this Tellico link.

In light of GJarrett's willingness to come from Dallas, I think Presidents day weekend would be a perfect time for a run. Why don't we come to some sort of concensus on where in Tn. we should go. There are so many trails, etc. to run. How about some suggestions as well as a central place to meet.

I'm in Knoxville.... but my Exploder is totally stock, so I dont know what kind of trails you're talking about. I'd like to be counted in if it's not to bad of a trail.

As far as a meeting place, depending on which side of the mountains your talking about, my input would be for Gatlinburg- we even have a Hard Rock Cafe now!!!
