Meeting the Founder of the TAT

DAY 11 Adams Xtreme Off Road Adventure

Meeting Sam Corerro the founder of the Trans America Trail was on the to do list.  The first half of the adventure was on the East Coast part of the TAT. I drove old forest roads and through national parks. It was so peaceful to be the only ones on the road.

Back in the 80's Sam was looking for a route which avoided lots of traffic and was scenic. The trails started with 100 miles in Mississippi and has grown to thousands of miles across the United States. The trial continues to grow as Sam is mapping new routes.  I arrived at Sam's house around dinner time, but first a pit stop at an interesting little stop called The Outpost. There were little shops and a great spot to eat. 

I made a big discovery too! I spotted bigfoot. I am pretty sure he was following me.   

After dinner it was time to spend a couple of hours chatting with Sam then made plans for breakfast in the morning. I headed to Pickwick State Park that evening to camp along the Tennessee River. 

I also discovered I didn't need the noise of a fan to fall asleep at night. It was so calming to listen to the sound of mother nature each night as I fell asleep.
