TAT in NC?

Hey Banjo,

I have enjoyed your ride reports and pics a lot. Good stuff! I have a question. Have you discovered any trail or ride that would be comparable to the TAT as it may be in Tennessee, whaere it starts? Would be pretty cool to have something like that in the Tar Heel state.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave,

Thanks

No, I have not plotted out any cross state routes..I have read of others trying to do such a thing though but can't remember where I read about it?
However, I do believe that the Eastern end of the TAT would benefit from some revisions. It's even been reported that most of what it uses in TN is now paved. There were some guys plotting a route from New Jersey to TN to make the TAT a true coast to coast but unfortunately I don't remember what thread that was in either. I do have a gps track from a member here that plotted a route from the SC coast through the GA & AL mtns that rejoined the TAT out around AR skipping the paved sections of TN. I say that I have it but I don't have a gps so I've never tried any of it...just glanced at it in google earth. I wish that I could remember who to give credit to for it, I think it was one of the GA crew...and unfortunately attachments have gone away here at ADV so I can't post it anyway....

Well Dave...with that I say Go For It! Plot out that Tar Heel route for us ...it would be very cool!

Last weekend was cold and wet=no ride. This Sunday was even worse with a mix of rain and snow!



....but today turned out to be a beautiful blue bird skies kind of day!











Since there was some snow yesterday I figured the roads may be a mess up in the hills so I rode West out SC11 along the base of the mtns instead of heading due North. I did a little research last night and had a suspicion that the SC TAG game might be out that a way too....this wasn't it but, maybe it will be?











It was said that you could get to the 'tag' via pavement but you may be able to get there via dirt. I tried to follow the 'dirty clue. " you would be as dirty raggs over hill and dale"












It wasn't to be....

Not a total loss though, it rarely ever is.











Table Rock.....from a 'new to me' viewpoint.

The road up to Caesars Head turned out to be in perfect condition!

...and the weather up top was even sunny and warm, a good call ....in spite of harsh picture takin' light.











Nothin' new here...same old, same old but it's been a little too long....

A little roadside pool....but maybe not quite warm enough for swimmers today.











It felt good to be out on some twisty pavement....but you never know what may be lurking around the bend.











Turns out he was tied up and could only reach the edge of the street.
