I LOVE most all the gravel roads in the Cherohala area that are off the beaten path, like Old Furnace, Davis Creek, Wildcat, Bald River, Citico, Cold Spring, etc, but I'd avoid the gravelhala if I had a choice. And near the top of my favorites list might be Sycamore Trail, up to the high grassy meadow. Awesome.

    These pics will get you anxious for spring!
    With a bike like that, sure. Remind me to get a Honda XL and bring it along.

    I am going to cancel everything and make this, although I'll be riding my AT.
    My FS/trail checklist around Stecoah/Nantahalla is almost complete, but there is more, i"m sure

    I’m staying over by the Cherohala Skyway the first half of the week, then moving camp over to Kickstand on Thursday. There are more forest roads to ride and probably less congestion in the Cherohala forest area. I didn’t figure anyone would be at Kickstand on Wednesday.

    Bringing the dual sport.

    I am planning on arriving Wednesday afternoon this year..Deckyon is going to a different meet over by Murphy and I am going to ride with him (he usually finds some great roads to ride on the way down, hehehe). Reminds me I have to put in for vacation days and call Mo...(if they are setup yet).

    Edit: vacation approved (yahoo.....), emailed Mo to reserve bed in bunkhouse for 4 nights (double yahoo)...now 4 weeks hurry up....

    2nd Edit: just got an email from Bobby,,,bunkhouse bed reserved.....yippee......

    If the goal is riding dirt, its actually better to stay over at Tellico Plains...however, I Like Mo.
    Anyway, my plans are to ride more dirt this year...but plans usually change.

    I'm on the fence. I'm kicking between coming down or doing a section hike of the Appellation Trail.
    I get 63 MPG, what do you get? Speeding tickets?
    I pack to camp but stay in a hotel because I have no idea what I'm doing...
