Proedge u provide the cam I will do some filiming.

If I did that everytime someone has asked, there would be no cam sales.. the best i can do for all my peeps is give them unbeatable pricing.

Matt Lee, Tour Divide Record holder and all around cycling bad-ass has hinted that if his ducks fall into a row, he too will toe the line for TNGA.

I just moved down another place in the overall standings...... :(

Why are they sending you through People's Lake Rd all the way up to Jeep Rd/P4 instead of the single track through Ft. Mountain?  I guess i a streighter shot over to Pinhoti 4/3 that way and tons of climbing on that rd.  Lots of offroading vehicles there though.  Lots of overnight camping by the rivers around People Lake Rd.  Meaning, ride fast through there... LOL  Anyway, that is the only area I am familiar with of the route.  So wish I was riding up there right now.  As you do the P2/P1 to Bear Creek, you come by Potato Patch area and you can see Cohutta overlook.  Snap some pics there.  Snap more when you get to HogPen by Dahnolega..Great way to hit MOST of all north GA mountains.  Have fun and be safe.  Good luck.
