If everyone just respected things, this wouldn't be happening!

And I love wheeling just as much as the next Jeeper and it is sad that this is happening.
i work as a treatment plant operator & the mud / dirt / other crap requries chemicals to remove & when it rains much more of them. BUT> the amount of chemicals that is put into water can't REPEAT will not cause cancer or other BS but it could if you drank o say about 1,000,000 gallons at one time in which case you would die from being stupid, i mean water toxicity...google it if you don't know what it is.

excuse me excuse me, but I have been working with the forest service, and know of this. Their has been 2 known linked deaths in the past year. and about 100 others who became sickly in our area because of the "Harrisonburg dam" stuff that has been going on. Tellico is just a washed out mud pit pretty much.(I say that lightly) But when people ride up and down streams that are used to link the treatment plant to the reservoir area, sediment is kicked up. The treatment plants have to use the treatment chemical to cleanse the water. The water then goes to the taps of the homes of the individuals in (in my case Harrisonburg, but applys to all places) the towns, and results of a greater chance of illness, and cancer. If you want contact Mr. Healey the Supervisory Forrester for North River Ranger District, he will tell you the same thing. No in fact, contact the person in charge of the area for Tellico, and ask him why.

A Jeeper for life

Have you ever been to tellico? There is 1 creek crossing now... Fains Ford. There were others years ago but bridges have been built. And Tellico is not 1 big mud put... its on the side and top of several ridges... kinda hard to have a mud pit on a mountain with half the trails are rocks anyways. Maybe you need to do some more research before trying to defend the other side.

I agree with you. Do not talk about something when you have no idea about it. If they were really focused on the water quality issues, then I believe there would be other places in our area that would be under attack.

To quote a bio-med grad student I used to know:

"If you shove enough of anything up a mouse's *** it will develop cancer."

Keep this in mind when claims are made about anything being cancerous. And be sure to do your research and be able to site the specific study when you make claims of this nature and shoot down people randomly quoting disreputable sources.

I've been to Tellico once and was disappointed that my Jeep wasn't better equipped to handle the difficult stuff. Amazing place to wheel! Just the one water crossing and lots of beautiful scenery. Unfortunately 2 of the most difficult parts of the trail had already been shut down. Looked like a ton of fun.

Break out your pen and paper for this one!!

We ALL need to write letters and back them with facts. Please read and be knowledgeable on the situation we are facing. Letters that say, this is BS will be thrown out. We need letters to say how this affects the region with money losses, and how tellico cabins, crawfords campground and businesses like those will be ultimately destroyed by this crap. It is a sad day for us all but we need to keep the fight going!!!! Letters are the best weapon we have against the mighty TU. They have the money! If you can also donate to the tellico funs please do. Maybe if we all meet up at the pay station and have a good cry we could record it and get it on the news! HA! That tree video is nuts! But keep the fight going guys!!!!

This is on one of the motorcycle sites I frequent (advrider.com) and people over there are joining up/donating to the Blue Ribbon Coalition.

Also there is a specific area for Tellico: http://www.sharetrails.org/rescue-tellico/

My letter has been sent. Lets prevent the hippies from taking one more beautiful spot in this world, that our jeeps could be exploring.

Run-off from golf courses and the ag-industry put more crud into the aquifir in a day than Tellico has since its inception. Our silt is harmful to native trout; luckily we have fisheries...

Safety fast,

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.- Helen Keller

I wrote my letter today! I urge all of you to take just three minutes right now to type out a letter of protest. Take just a few minutes now to ensure that others will have years of fun on the trail.
