Paved Roads

Today we rode from Tennessee, through Georgia, into Alabama, and back into Tennessee. Most of the day’s riding was on paved roads and/or completely unmaintained “paved” roads. We met a guy named Mike from England who is riding the TAT by himself. I ran over an indecisive squirrel. We found an amazing overlook in Georgia (wait till you see the drone footage!) and lost an action camera on our way out of the state park. Once we arrived at our destination, Chirs and Richard went back to the site and tried looking for it with no luck. Needless to say, it was a full day. Tomorrow brings more of Tennessee.

Rainy Days

Today started out in Tellico Plains, TN and there was no shortage of water. We started out with 4 water crossings and soon found ourselves in solid rain until we stopped for lunch. The pervious day we planned on removing some of our unnecessary items from our bikes to lighten the load. In the process, we removed much of our rain gear so by the time we got to the diner we were cold and wet. The afternoon dried out a bit and made for some of the best riding we’ve done yet. As we approached out destination we ran into our first road block. We had to take a short cut to town since there was no alternate route to the road block.

NC to TN

For much of NC we followed GPSKevin’s tracks and were pleasantly surprise at how nice they were. We saw more dirt roads than we expected and really enjoyed the scenic countryside. We made a stop at Moto Vicious in Asheville, NC. Some friends of Chris, Kenny & PJ, graciously offered Chris and I somewhere to stay for the night while Lynn and Ron grabbed a hotel. Chris’s Fuel injector seemed to be acting up so we decided to see if we could fix it. We made it work a little better, but a complete replacement was put in a 36 hours later. We made a stop in Andrews to take some pictures and get our GPS in order. Finding the trail head was a bit trickier than we expected since it looks like someone’s driveway. Once we found the right trail we had a fantastic day of riding. Took a break at Thunder Mountain General Store and ended the day at the Tellico Cafe. We had quite a few navigation issues due to the lack of consistent GPS coordinates in the maps. Not to mention…. we didn’t have our paper maps until the trailer arrived the next day.

Donut to Donut

Our first day of riding started in Carolina Beach, NC. Originally, we wanted to start our journey at an NC lighthouse and end at an Oregon lighthouse. From the moment we arrived at Carolina Beach we knew we had to stop at Britt’s Donut shop. While delighting in the flavors of handmade North Carolina donuts, we found a map showing the donut shops across America. As luck would have it, Oregon also has donut shops. So now when folks ask where we are going, we tell them that we are going to get a donut… in Oregon.

NC is mostly paved roads to get to Andrews, NC. The first day was a good chance for us to learn how to ride together as a group since we haven’t done any road riding together. Communication is key to staying safe when riding in groups and this was the perfect opportunity to work out a system of communication that included our Sena 20s intercoms and hand signals. It made for a great day to shakedown all aspects of our riding before we get to the Trans-America Trail.
