Ha, ha, phurp you are very welcome, not many take that route... Would you believe at the old age of 17 (1954) I drove a gas/fuel oil delivery truck over that road some... Been so long that I didn't remember much about the road though... Anyway it was a 2-ton Chevy with a 1201 gal. tank and the big side compartments that we hauled tires and cases of oil in... That run was to strip mines w/fuel oil, cases of motor oil etc. for the heavy equip. ... You can't get too wild on a bike goin down toward Caryville as the tar & chip is torn up into just gravel in places, and if you were to lose it over one of those switch backs well it might be a few days before someone (smelled) found you...lol...
Also on the Triangle goin from Petros East (8-10 MI.) on 116 there is a lil community called Braytown, I laid out and did a 161kv substation on the North side of the road right under that 161kv power line crossing in the late 80s, can't hardly see it from the road though...
I usually go that route (Caryville Mtn.) when I go up to E. Tn./E. Ky., but since I am normally alone I think I will just do the Triangle or maybe even just up thru Oliver Springs & Briceville to Lake City even...
Glad y'all enjoyed, I might share a few more good rides if y'all are goin back up in that neck of the woods, just let me know, and maybe I can send a map of a good ride...
Have a good one...Old Dog...
