    Sunday and Monday, fantastic, 3 friends for Atl. came north, they got soaked on 515 on the way up but the rest of the day was dry thanks to a couple of well placed porches, they camped at Crawfords while I stayed in my bed 6 miles away, had a couple of near misses and one drop, these routes can be done on almost any DS

    Did any of you guys come through the stateline campground on trail#1? I was camping there this weekend with my 650L and saw some guys come by. I definitely plan to go back to explore some more.

    What is the paved / unpaved ratio for both days (the less paved the better!)? This is close to me and I'd love to plan to hit this. Some of these roads I have already included in a loop I am trying to build myself.

    Any pictures from the trip?

    no pictures we tend to ride hard, day one prolly 60/40 dirt-pave and day 2 prolly 40/60, but there is a lot more dirt to be done on day two, instead we came down the Ocoee river to 68
