Upper Tellico Plains 4X4 OHV - Tellico Bound
Southeastern Wheelin' Weekend

Stair Case and Helicopter Pad held our attention again with more uphill challenges. One Tacoma destroyed a front axle pinion, but we soon had everyone up and were on our way back into the forest.
We decided to head back toward the access roads downhill via School Bus Hill. We soon ran into a group coming uphill and having some problems. We waited for them to clear the trail and then made our way down a deep dirt sluice cut into the mountain and down a series of tricky steps, descending for what seemed a long while until we were back to the bottom and headed out of the park.
Back at camp, some of the drivers played on the rock pile built within the campground. All-Pro provided all those who registered a BBQ dinner, and a raffle followed. Everyone seemed to have a good time and swapped stories about the day's runs.
On a side note, we're pretty much used to going wheelin' when we run trails, but in this part of the country you'll hear enthusiasts call it ridin'. It was fun to hear the variation in terms and it was a great time hanging out with new acquaintances.
This was the second of three events to be held by All-Pro this year. The first was in Phoenix, and the third is set to occur in Johnson Valley in California. For more information, take a look at: www.allprooffroad.com.
