I guess it’s just you and me again Jeff.
Hopefully we make it all the way this time with no wood blocks in the road and no fire this time

There's a couple with interest. They may meet you for some pie. One of them is a native Texan, now retired and living in Ducktown TN which is just about an hour away.

If you give me more details on the dirt/gravel route, one of them may be able to add to your plans.

well there will be a fair amount of winging it but I have a couple routes plotted to my GPS.

Tatham gap rd from Robbinsville to Andrews

a half day mixed half paved half gravel from Stecoah up 28 to the dragon to unicol turnpike to Tellico plains, run down river road through miller and bald river falls, through stratton gap to santeetlah gap.

We are at the kick stand lodge, no cell service but it is only 83*f so that is a date trade off.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Either they are out having lots of fun or the pie sucked and wasn't worth the ride and they won't tell. Sitting here finishing up work, I'll tell you which one I'm pulling for.

300 miles for the day we found a dirt road tighter than the dragon, it rocked!

Best peanut butter pie east of the Mississippi River!
