    Man that is a BIG loop for sure (7+ hours in the saddle to hit all those spots). Where will you be coming from to hit Ft. Mountain/Chattsworth? Will you come over the mountain from the Elijay side toward Chattsworth and go back over the same route, hit 575/515 north to Hwy 60 then east toward Suches? I might be able to meet you guys on the mountain and tag along for the Hwy. 60 run.

    I'm taking the afternoon and running 60 on my Wing just to see how it is today - I'll let you know if I see any issues.

    Hi HJ
    Probably run: Canton, Hwy 20, 108, Little Refuge, Salacoa, 411, Stallion Gas station, up over Ft. Mtn, back down, back up over the top to Ellijay.
    then either Aska Rd to Hwy 60,or Ellijay backroads to Morganton, down 60 to Suches and Riders Hill. From there probably backroads to Afton Road to Burnt. Mtn., Jasper, then slab it down 575 to Canton.

    Hoping the roads dry by Sunday morning.....

    I am chomping to see your Tuono !!!

    see ya

    Rode up to Little River Canyon and the Brow in Alabama/Tennessee/Georgia yesterday. Lots of folks hang-gliding off the Brow and tons of water coming through Little River.

    Hi Guys, If you're getting out today I won't be able to make it--until later anyway. Wife wants to go to early service at a new church. I will probably get out and about around noon. May meet another Tuono buddy at Rider's Hill.
