Hehe. I told you, get outta there with your answer. There are a lot of archived build links in there but they are not always easy to find. When I find one I bookmark it and print it to pdf so I can find it again. I'd say its worth searching for those threads. That newbie thing was just BS though.

I think I might be banned from there about now, but maybe not. Not a good crew of posters really. There is one guy, or to say that one guy I am done with if I am not banned. It might be no one can possible get banned there either. Either way of it I got the info I needed.

I am re-considering going back to cookin off clutches. pain in the but, but cheaper than auto trannies which are almost the same pain in the butt to fix and changed.

We are not in the rugged terrain of east Tennessee... we are in the Tri-Cities metro around 1200-1600 ft elevation, which is in the "valley" that runs parallel from here all the way down through Knoxville and Chattanooga and northeastern Alabama and northwestern Georgia... you have to go almost to extreme extreme east Tennessee almost to the North Carolina state line to hit the really rugged terrain and steep hills. Its mostly all flat (relatively speaking) here where I am... its still hilly in some places depending on where you go, but not like many people think. We dont get much snow either. 10 to 15 inches per year is about it if we are lucky. One year we only measured a couple inches of snow all winter.

I like some manuals, but I have a bum left knee and it hurts when I drive a stick. I drive my dads Nissan truck sometimes and it occasionally bothers me.

Tenn, I think I know about where. I rode up North from Cleveland /Chatanooga, and then crossed east up and down a ridge to be in Tellico area late that day.

Lux, oddly perhaps i haven't been warned... That isn't a site plan to stay on much though. I didn't know that at first and wasted a few posts.

I am seeing things in young men I really don't like there. It appears they have little over all values on much.

Oh yeah... and west of the "valley" you do eventually run into the Cumberland Plateau... its pretty hilly. They are actually higher in elevation than we are. Its really nice here I think. However, I do get bored with it.

I spent around 90 days in the area. Lots of things to see and do and on a motorcycle it's even better. I was in 2 places mainly as camps. Cumberland Gap and a TVA over by Green Back.

Being into early American history nearer Cumberland somewhere to the east I think and south I know there is a older cabin off a back road with a double block house barn, all set up the way it should be. I stopped there but no one was around, so I left a note. Never heard back.

In the Smokies Park there is a like barn and farm house public may tour. Just sayin incase you have seen it, so you can know what I mean. If it were a little colder in summers, and there were maple trees to tap I could live there.

I got there out of Ar, and went back and forth about 1/2 a few times. The 06 South Eastern took place there then, a primitive event, and we went to that too, and other places like manskers station, another just over the Va line I forget the name of at the moment.

The South Eastern was at Bledso Pk. I found so flint there to knapp, but never got to work any.

After crossing the USA from Nh to cal Cal to Fla, Fla back to Ar, we bought a van and a big trailer for the bike and it's little trailer. In W'Va. the bike was stolen and everything in the way was too.

2 boxes of rocks 2 50 lbs each were a part of that. I still miss the rocks, one was a carbon plant a old man in Ky gave to me. Other rocks were assorted finds from across the USA. I wish I could have seen the look on the thief's face when he found lots of rocks and a deer skull with antlers on.
