    This ride was a little weird to me after it was over and again I made some trivial mistakes here that I know better but nothing lost or hurt here. And about 3 months behind here posting so I at least maybe have some priorities correct.

    A small refresher here, the structures to the far right is where I'm interested in going but do take notice of the structures to the middle left...

    This was the first trail I found that looked promising heading off towards the golf course area.

    Hit this big step-up and decided too much for me to ride out

    But I kept walking on up this steep trail and hit a 'T' junction with another trail and saw this black mark on the hard dirt; A very good clue!

    These ruts with rocks in them are 100% trail maintenance so hope lives I can ride upward on this trail

    Small example of the trail leading to these structures...nothing too hard but steep and plenty of vegetation to stop you going downhill to far if you fall over.

    Slid into homebase...

    Here's a better view of the structs... This is a little ~spooky here, I don't think I'm in Tenn and expect a scatter-gun to come out or some-one to call me a revenuer, but it is reasonable to guess, there has ~never been a white-boy parked in the front yard so I do not make too many moves and no movements towards the home just to be safe and using a little common sense.

    At this point, I did not realize the golf-course was not here because it was 1 ridge over..

    I wanted a shot of that top ridgeline for identifying later

    After finishing the ride that day, I understood what probably happened and here's the trail I will have to transverse to ride on that ~golf course... I saw these people walking up that steep, technical trail on my way up the trail and this seems to be the correct trail.

    And yes it is steep with many sharp turns... Since I'm still full-time, I'm gonna make another attempt here.

    Attempt 4 -- Jan 2020


    Not really an attempt here or at least no pics at this time due to the lovely samsung picture taker I carry... What is here is what was in view from across the valley on the ~newly pushed road that opened up this area. In any event, I did ride there and the view was pretty cool and I surprised the crowd that was out there on hand this day. And, that ain't no golf-course out there; just dirt to the high-heavens and few rocks.


    There's the new dirt there across the river; home at the bottom was already here when I arrived; the one on the middle right is newly constructed. Seems everytime access is given to ~any area here, someone builds a home on it.

    Pretty big land-slide; I've seen GI crews working manually on roads before out here but this work was probably local riders just making it happen; yea, no GOV support! Gotta luv that, right my fellow Americans?

    There's the structures pictured here I've ridden before and this new road just ties into the trail that was there before. Maybe I'll try to ride that trail on further up that small spur someday?

    A little better pic of the new home and some farming; no GOV support I bet; another big-boy yea! I'd like to see many of my follow countrymen live here like, 2-3 days, to get a real understanding of the life you so often want to talk about. :)
