    I looked in my sock drawer for your jetboil, does that count for a free lunch? :rofl

    This is the dual sport section we rode just before lunch on Friday. I followed Brown Dog most of this section and as you can tell he's chunking some pretty big rocks, roost, and limbs at those of us behind him. At 6:55 he clips Porter with a limb :eek1 Porter defends himself with a nice Karate Kid wax off (or is that was on) impression. Then at 8:20 Vest kicks a smaller stick up into my GoPro :rofl .

    I'm waiting for Sean to put up some of his videos.
    He has some more of the tight stuff we did near point of no return hill.

    :deal Thank you guys very much, for all the blood, sweat and tears of joy. I know it takes a lot of work to maintain these trails. It was especially nice to be able to ride them for the first time last weekend.:ricky :muuttThat most likely would not have been possible without all the extra effort.:beer

    Now that I have mentally rejoined society :sick ....


    .... I would like to give a BIG thank you for all the folks that came out. Our sponsors for there generosity and of course, the fine folks over at Tellico Motorcycle outfitters for the fantastic work they did on the trails.

    I know Mike personally invested his Thursday night and Friday Morning to getting those trails cleaned up. I am very excited to see how the registration donations benefit the maintenance and development of the trails in the area.

    The fine folks at Crawford did a fantastic job as usual. We appreciate all the hard work TC!

    Ya'll keep our eyes out for the Sweaty Beaver. :freaky

    After 81 I picked up a nail in my rear tire and had to stop and do a road side fix. I missed Whit Road and all the cool creek crossings.....

    I cought up with the group at Tellico Plains and we then headed out from there. We made the run up River Road.

    After heading back down Power Line Road we were on the way out and I hit a slick spot on the rocks and went down. I broke my rear Brake Master Cylinder bracket and had to make it back to the Camp Ground with no back brake..... :eek1

    I had a great time at this rally. It was the biggest turnout I've ever seen. Thanks to all who had a hand in making it such an awesome gathering. :freaky

    Anyways, I've got some pics to post. Some of these were taken by SquirrelyGrl.

    This is on US64 headed east through Ocoee.

    [​IMG]

    We stopped in at Field of the Woods. It's a pretty neat place if you've never been there.

    We left there and headed for Tellico Plains for lunch at the bakery. After that we hit Witt road to see how the creeks looked.

    We made it through the first three without a problem and stopped at the last one to take pics.
