TTORA SETO/ Crawford's Questions
Last year at SETO I went up on Thursday after work stayed at my dad's place in Unicoi (Ga), went to Tellico on Friday morning ran into some NC guys and rode with them for the day. I had planned on meeting up with some of the GA chapter but, I had a family emergency and had to leave on Friday night. While I was there, I had no idea how everything worked, as far as getting with an appropriate group for trails, or anything else for that matter. This year I have scheduled time off of work and will be staying at Crawfords I guess. So I have a few questions on what the norm is for the group if there is one...
1) Are you guys roughing it (Tents) or pulling campers up, staying in Bunks or Cabins? I have a large camper (33') but can't drive two trucks or pull two trailers so I would have to get the camper up in advance etc...(Tents or cabins may be easier)
2) Are reservations required ahead of time for primitive campers?
3) I have read there are basically two groups..(Body damage and no body damage) I know the trails change in difficulty, but are the harder trails accesible to bystanders like the exit of Lower 2 for example, or Is the no body damage group limited to the dirt roads pretty much like trail 1 maybe 4 ?
I am really a newbie to Tellico, only been on trails 4,5,and part of upper 2. I know my rig and abilities are not up for trails such as lower 2 and do not want to get caught in a bad situation, hold the group up unnecessarily etc..
Any insight would be appreciated...Thanks..
