    The old TET-S is up and reposted as SEAT.
    I'm the originator of this route and am posting it under a new name as is my right under the original documents.
    I'm in the process of mapping out a new route up the east coast - all original work on my part, 'The Eastern Route'.

    IF somebody is the originator of some routes in that area and would like to donate them to the cause, I would be very receptive to possibly use some or all of such routes.

    I sat down at the computer last night and started roughing it out.... I want to head north from the northern end of SEAT, pick up the Dolly Sods, north across central PA to catch the eastern end of my Northern Route, north into NY, go up the western side of the Adirondacks, across the north side of them, then head east across northern VT, NH and on into Maine.

    Comment here if you have suggestions, but if you have some pieces you want to donate to the route please PM me.
    Thanks all!

    Northern, I love what you're doing here (and have done, already), and would like to help find track sections. Could you give us any more of an idea of where you need tracks? E.G. SEAT to Dolly Sods, there to The Northern Route - East, there to NY/VT border, etc. By the way, is there a Dolly Sods track, or is that just the location in the Monongahela National Forest?

    Or could you use help contacting owners of such existing tracks as the New England Adventure Trail?

    I'm now in Northern West Virginia, so could most easily work on southern sections of The Eastern Route

    I've been working on mapping some possible routes from the current end of SEAT northward.
    The Dolly Sods is an area in the far northeast corner of WV. There is a picnic area of that name in the area.
    I'm working entirely from scratch... don't want anybody saying I used their work.
    That said, sometimes you end up going in some of the same places as previous work because there isn't any other way to go.
    If I do, it's NOT because I was following somebody else's stuff. It's just the best/most obvious way to go.

    I haven't had much riding lately, but hope to this fall. I wouldn't mind running some of it for the record.

    NNEAT might be an option for that. For the most part, its big bike friendly with good tires. @DockingPilot was the originator of most of it. I did the entirety a couple years ago and about half of it in the last few days. It's a fun, fast, remote beautiful ride through the wilds of Northern New England. Mostly logging roads where you don't see a soul for 100+miles.
