Waking to the sound of a downpour outside our tent cot meant that we may be wet, but at least we were still alive. Despite the huge amounts of rain that fell on our makeshift camp in western North Carolina it turns out we did not drown or wash away, but would live to wheel another day. After a brief and soggy driver’s meeting our rag tag bunch of Canoeligans loaded up in our 4x4s for more trails and adventure. We followed Chuck Davis into the hallowed hills of Durhamtown Tellico. DUrhamtown Tellico is not named for our friend and UA Crony Chris Durham, but it might as well be. The park is named Durhamtown Tellico because the private owners come from the Durhamtown Off-road area in Georgia, and the name Tellico comes from the now closed public trail system that used to exist in western North Carolina. Those trails will be mourned, but at least we can still play on private land in the area. The trails and area have a definite Tellico feel and are open (for a fee) to anyone with a 4x4. Have fun and enjoy these trails as we did.
