    June 23-30, East Coast portion of the TAT if we can find more dirt than asphalt.
    Current Plan is to ride from VA to Tellico TN using Sam's TAT track.
    Trying to find out how much this portion of the TAT is pavement.

    June 13 - Ready To Go. Way, way over the prep. Heading out from Maggie Valley NC with a destination of Mid Arkansas. Camping, motels and anything that comes along. Oh.....Polaris RZR 1000 with 550 miles is my choice of ride. Sam says it looks good and the rain hasn't caused any closures. It would be great to hook up with a likeminded crew. Haven't logged on in since my first post.. too much negativo. For Me...It's Time.

    Change of plans (imagine that). I'll be leaving from Sunset Beach, NC on June 20th, to Andrews, NC and then, at the very least, to western
    Oklahoma . Camping for the most part, an occasional motel about every 3-4 days to remove the stench. Hope to meet some of you wanderers on the TAT.
