As the miles click down closer to the starting point in Tellico Plains I feel the excitement and anxiety that comes with exploring a new place. I do not get this feeling when I ride on pavement, but the extra challenges associated with riding off road and in remote locations come with a little more angst. I try to push visions of Deliverance out of my head as I roll up to the starting point. I have no idea what to expect. What will the first road conditions be? How long before I am picking up the bike for the first time?
