December,,,3 days of sun = Tellico seat time:

Tellico Plains TN, off season cabin rates at Hunt's Lodge are $35 a day...2 bunks and heat. I figure it's the last long-gerrr ride I will get before winter settles in. Did some single track on Trail 82 & Witt Road which is part of the TAT, lot's of FS roads and lots of nice twisty pavement in the 60+ degree weather:

Cool. That's some off road stuff with undisturbed leaves leading to who knows where. Old logging roads?
More ADV than what I'd like.
Nice the rates for the cabins are good, 60 degree riding is no problem either!

After three years of the Tellico Plains meet my old bunch passed on it this year as prices about double at $90 with so so camping and three meals. Lots of good roads with as much skill as you want to pick! In town two little museums made on stores were nice.Harley dealer had some nice old flat heads on the floor.

We broke our dry spell and warm for awhile.Had two ride both ways in rain to Danville this AM and sure did not park in the big pile of leaves in end of lot were I usually leave the Wee. Only one of the old nine that rode a bike in so got to tell them again. Lots of owners and a few riders!" Termps to go down all day and highs may be in the 20s by late week. Hate ice! The Tellico pics sure look like nice weather.

Yeah the regular season rate is $70 a night for a 2pr cabin.....that can get expensive. In the summer we will just camp & hang hammocks....way cheaper!
It was in the 30's both mornings, so having that cabin heater was true luxury. We were the only ones there at Hunts.
I see snow behind this front today.....grrrrrr.


Notacop, that was Trail 81 and at first I thought, "good, the leaves are softening the blow of the rocks roots and ledges", then I modified that to, "Damn, these leaves are hiding all the roots, rocks and ledges...and robbing my rear of traction!"
