THE TAX MAN WILL BE NIPPING AT OUR HEELS!. So what better way to celebrate! Lets head down to Skeenah Creek campground and camp, share some good food and have great fire shared with friends!......But wait this is a dual sport group? So I guess I should mention the ride portion! Friday lets all get there and get settled by about noon or 1:00P.M..... Friday afternoon lets meet at the clubhouse and get in a dual sport ride and scouting adventure. This ride will be a dual sport riders on any type bike friendly! We we enjoy Spring coming in the north GA mountains and enjoy a easy route for riders of all skill levels to enjoy.

Skeenah Creek Campground....<-----A LINK TO THE CAMPGROUND

Saturday: Lets plan a more off road dual sport oriented ride! We have been on a few of these where the road becomes creek!

Skeenah Creek campground is a super awesome campground! complete with a nice clubhouse and super clean hot showers.....THEY EVEN HAVE wI-fi But if you ask "Rick Moore" he thinks it sucks!.....They also rent campers and have a bed and breakfast or parking for your 35ft camper with full hookups. Come out or ride down with us and join  us for a weekend of good food.....some good riding & riding mayhem and some good friends sharing some good laughs around the campfire over a few cold ones!

Below are some pictures from last years ride. We plan to do some dual sport routes and some big bike hard pack 2 track trails.

    Good time! Fun ride! Great folks! Thanks Chainsaw Bob for the route, it's nice to have someone that knows the area the way you do. Didn't miss a beat when the mtn bikers were using your intended route. Can't wait to ride with everyone again.

    I can't believe this.
    Anticipation of this event during an endless winter.
    Bike has been packed for 4 days.
    Perfect weather.

    And now both my eyes have some sort of infection.

    Is anyone scared of GHOST ? Let me know now ! Chainsawbob

    1 · April 8, 2014

    • Steve

      That moment when you realize you have no chance against ghost rider......

      2 · April 9, 2014

    • Kevin G

      As long as this ghost ain't after my beer then were cool....not sure I'm night riding though I'm more into beers by the campfire!

      2 · April 9, 2014

  • Kevin G

    Bike is all packed except for food and GPS set for destination I just need to stop for fuel before meeting at Sonic. I am missing my 5.3 gallon BIG tank!

    April 9, 2014

  • Gary F.

    I'm planning to meet you guys Friday night after work. I should be there no later than 7:00 pm. I just need two trees to hang my hammock. Or one tree and my truck... Can't wait to meet and ride with everyone.

    1 · April 8, 2014

    • Kevin G

      Yeah truck bumper and I think there were some trees along the fence line down by the creek I would bring some extra rope in case we need to make a loop around the fat tree for you to hang from

      April 8, 2014

    • Steve

      Fat ones need love too...

      2 · April 9, 2014

    Ok BOB - I'll bite -Ghost?

    • jerry d

      OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH NOOOOOOOOOOOO! You're not going to take us to that old graveyard where that gang of mutant zombie bikers ate the brains of all those dual sport riders, and now they vote for Obama, are ya?

      4 · April 9, 2014

    • ROBERT L. N.

      Jerry , How did you know about that ? That was you that did that ? WOW

      April 9, 2014

  • Steve

    Martha requested - if the field is wet please don't rut it up.
    I bet it will dry up before we get there.
    Have you seen the weather forecast
    YEAH = )

    2 · April 8, 2014

    • Kevin G

      Yeah and find a piece of bark for kickstand prop say you don't wake up to a lazy motorcycle! and hell yeah the weather forecast is looking awesome! And you can bet the trails and F.S. roads we will ride will have some mud! they always do. I found a road last year that turned into the stream...but it was a road!

      1 · April 8, 2014

  • Steve

    I just spoke with Martha, the owner, she said she has plenty of room not to worry everybody needs to come on.

    1 · April 8, 2014

  • Thomas Brent T.

    Be sure and bring cash for your site solo is 15 per night per the campgrounds web page.

    1 · April 8, 2014

  • Gary F.

    Thanks for the info Richard, I'll load up Thursday. Hopefully I won't need anything by the time I get that far.

    1 · April 8, 2014

  • Richard K.

    FYI...Good idea to stop in Blue Ridge, Blairsville or your favorite metropolis for food and beverages before arriving @ the campground. Local store (4 miles away) ain't very dependable and closest real store is 15+ miles away...

    April 8, 2014

  • Thomas Brent T.

    I have called to make a reservation several time but no answer. Phone just keeps ringing no answering machine / voicemail. I am sure we will have plenty of room in the primitive camping area. Looking forward to the ride's for the weekend. See you all soon.

    1 · April 7, 2014

    • Kevin G

      Richard got in touch with them...

      April 7, 2014

    • Rick M.

      I talked to Martha a couple of weeks ago

      April 8, 2014

  • Ron C.

    Are we planning a lunch stop on the way down ??

    April 7, 2014

    • Richard K.

      Hell yeah! Kevin loves George Forman Burgers...

      April 7, 2014

    • Kevin G

      Ron are you meeting us at Sonic? I figure grab breakfast there.....and if we get hungry we can stop and grab lunch as well.....the campground has a few refrigerators so we can hit the grocery store one we set up camp and go get food and beer they have grills and charcoal there for you to use or at least they did last year...

      April 7, 2014

  • Richard K.

    Hey-
    6:30PM Monday 4/7/14. Just spoke with Martha. She is alive and well! We have 15+ tent sites by the pond. No Fishin up there - will need to go down stream of the mill to fish. No towels for tenters this year. Her number is[masked] if you want to speak with her.

    1 · April 7, 2014

    • Kevin G

      No towels? wtf...and crappy Wi-fi....how we I survive.....Oh I have a pack towel never mind!

  • dcarlisle

    Is this ride still on?

    April 5, 2014

    • dcarlisle

      I'll go straight there from home, I live north of Chattanooga about 40 miles. Do I need to reserve a tent site or just wait till I get there?

      April 6, 2014

    • Kevin G

      I called and left a message for that girl Stacey that said she was going to be helping out there this year and she never called me back. So it couldn't hurt just tell them should be 10-15 of us camping.

      1 · April 6, 2014

  • Kevin G

    If you have a camera be sure to bring it! I plan on tenting down by the creek at the campground. We can also have the evening bon-fire in that area as well. If anyone has questions e-mail me or call the campground don't wait to the last minute to send me e-mails I may not have time to respond.

    April 5, 2014

    • jerry d

      Do you mean way at the back by the trout pond where we camped before?

      1 · April 5, 2014

    • Kevin G

      yeah but on the far end in the tent only area

      April 6, 2014

  • Ron C.

    Is there a time set for a group ride to Skeenah Fri morning?

    March 19, 2014

    • Kevin G

      Ron we haven't decided yet probably like 9:30 we will meet in Maryville those of us from the Knoxville area the Sonic like we did last time.

      April 5, 2014

  • ROBERT L. N.

I can't stay overnight( I am taking care of my wife with a broken leg) I also have a ride planed Sunday---or we can take your ride---I don't care !!! I just want to get out and ride !!! chainsawbob

    3 · March 25, 2014

    • Steve

      April 4, 2014

    • Kevin G

      April 5, 2014

  • Kevin G

    For anyone riding down from Knoxville/Maryville we will meet at the Sonic on 1523 E Lamar Alexander Parkway (321) the one next to the Food Lion at 9:00AM grab some breakfast and be ready to roll by 9:30.....

    From there we will head to Madisonville on hwy 411 south where we will meet up with Jonathon....if anyone is in that area and wants to meet contact me an let me know and I can give you that address.

    Weather this time of year is unpredictable be prepared with base layers and rain gear no telling what kind of weather we may get here in the mountains.

    April 5, 2014

  • Steve

    Still committed to being there, friend of mine wants to ride in Saturday morning

    1 · April 4, 2014

  • Steve

    Ha, The last message was for my Run to the
    Durham Town Plantation - Moonshine festival.
    stumbled from the chicken house......

    1 · March 25, 2014

  • Steve

    I reserved a room in the old house.
    Martha the owner said shes looking forward to seeing the bunch of us there

    2 · March 19, 2014

  • Kevin G

    The campground called and asked anyone that needs a camper or a camper site to call them I don't think tent sites will be a problem but I'm going to call and reserve 10 by the river!

    1 · March 19, 2014

  • ROBERT L. N.

    I know this area well ---I live in Blue Ridge! I can set up rides for Friday or Saturday or both if you like , or we can ride your routes, I don't care . Looking forward to a good time ! Old Chainsawbob

    1 · February 21, 2014

    • Kevin G

      Heck yeah put a few routes together. You know the area well I think everyone had a blast last time and got in a good ride so be thinking some up and we can all decide a fame plan when we get in on Friday!

      February 21, 2014

  • Steve

    Last year the weather was perfect. Martha says she will be ready, rain or shine.

    3 · February 20, 2014

  • Ron C.

    I spoke with Martha (owner of skeenah creek) the other day. Earl and Pam are no longer involved with skeenah creek (or each other). Pam plans to open the campground April 1 weather permitting. Guess we will need to keep checking with her for campground availability.

    February 6, 2014

  • ROBERT L. N.
