Hello, my name is John Bowman. I live in Germantown, TN (right outside Memphis). If the weather holds out next week, I am going to ride the Tennessee and Mississippi sections of the TAT. I plan on starting from Tellico Plains early on Thursday May 30. I will hop off the trail at I-55 in Mississippi late on Saturday June 1st. According to Sam, it should take three full days. If anyone is interested in riding along, please let me know.
