Franklin-CulloWHEE Oct 27 + Last year's Fall colors Pix

Hey Guys
I am planning a lil trip up to Franklin, Asheville, Cullowhee next weekend. I have some stuff in Asheville on Friday, but it would be awesome to hook up with some guys on Saturday Morning in Franklin, who would like to ride up the coppermine road to Old Bald, or Upper Field, and camp out Saturday nite. The trees should be close to MAX. The place is awesome!
Franklin is about 2.5 hours from ATL, if you go up 985>441. If you're coming from Cort's house ;-), take 64 east!
Last time, Tim (Can'tDriveOnTheRoad) and I went up there, we met Jordan and friends at the WalMart in Franklin on Sat AM. it worked well.
I have some friends up there who might be available to show us some more trails too.
This is 4x4 required, Coppermine is a bit challenging.
Anybody want to come!?
>> WAYY Too Many Pix! <<

Chris, i added the driving time to the first post.
** Also added Photobucket Linx to last year's trip **

If all goes well, we will wake up at Old Bald on Sunday morning, have our possum strip breakfast, pack up, and do some riding. We could come down to the store and find you, and take you back up there.

Hey Bud
Its just that Coppermine road has some places that challenge Whitey pretty seriously, like had me wishing for a locker real bad last time. LOL

Moses Creek rd approach is definitely 2wd friendly though.

We're gonna be outside of the furniture store that is down by the red light. I love Gold Rush Days in Dahlonega!!

My plan is to go straight at the light, where 400 ends, then follow the "bypass" there and go left toward town at the WalMart intersection. I like to park in the lot that is about a block south of the red light at the end of main street. Like go left at the WalMart light, and you should be able to find the lot.

DooD, I was hoping to have the new engine ready for Whitey, but, I think I'll drive him as he is now. I might take the T100, in case I want to tow a particular 84 4Runner back though.... I have a week to decide.
