    April 29 - May 2

    I may go up the night of the 28th though.

    mountain biking/camping trip.

    priority on Knoxville Urban Wilderness, which has everything to offer, and will be where we camp near.

    can take a day trip over to Windrock Bike Park and Windrock XC trails if desired, only like 1 hour away.

    camping at https://www.hipcamp.com/discover/tennessee/brown-bike-farms

    I have already booked the group site for us.

    there is a “ditch” to cross to get to the campsite, which one review says a Tacoma with a hitch rack hit the rack going through. You can park and walk(or bike) over though.

    I will update this post with pertinent info as I gather it from @honda50r

    let me know if you wanna tag along!

    going:

    @tweakit88
    @honda50r (not camping, but bringing breakfast)
    @SummitBound
    @jbaker1976

    maybe:
    @backcountryj
    @aturk
    @eidsondesign
    @john8899

    If this many people are going it may be worth asking about price of a cabin vs price of everyone camping. Primitive camping is something like $16. Idk if it's discounted for groups though.

    There is not an attendant - should be fine unless other guys have an objection. If needed I can call the owner - just book it

    I also have access to a few AirBnbs if that route is chosen

    Let’s get a count first, would you be camping with us since you live so close?

    Haha right...

    I booked the group site, even if only 2 of us go, 20/night isn’t bad.

    I'm kinda interested. I'm not sure I can keep up on the trails. I'm getting old and fat.
    Camping and drinking beer I'm good at though!

    @jjones.yota You are planning to camp 4 nights? If I'm able to make it, I would likely just come up the 30th, Friday morning very early.

    Not 100% yet. I can easily come the 28th evening, but may just come early the 29th. I hate getting camp setup in the dark lol. I am for sure 3 nights though.
