What you'll do

We'll meet 30 minutes prior to your 9:00 am start time and cover the bootleggers map; our great-grandads map for running white lightning into North Carolinas, operating and safety procedures.

At 9:00 am we will begin on a 1.5 hour journey through the beautiful countryside of East Tennessee making our way to heart of Gatlinburg and then into the Great Smoky Mountain National park. You'll enjoy some of the most breathtaking views of the smokies including Newfound Gap; which is located on the boarder of Tennessee and North Carolina. Once we've crossed into North Carolina it's a short drive to our great-grandads drop-off point which is now the Oconaluftee Visitors Center and formerly the site of a Cherokee village and Appalachian community. There's plenty of parking and restroom access as well as a gift shop to recoup.

You'll have an hour before we depart to enjoy the beautiful scenery, learn about the history and folklore of the Smoky Mountains and Appalachian community, walk through the historic farm and have a greater understanding of what it was like to live during that time. Best of all (if we're lucky) we may even get to see some elk!

My name is Travis. My brother Nick and I have been riding all-terrain vehicles throughout our entire lives. From coast to coast, we have ridden in: snow, sand, mud, and rocks. Owning a business is tough, but you know what they say..."Work hard, play hard...we mean it!!" So when the works done there's nothing more fun and relaxing then jumping in a Cam Am Side-by-Side and heading into the Great Smoky Mountains. I've always enjoyed the outdoors and adrenaline sports, so combining these two is a dream come true!

Nick and I will provide you with the most unique prospective of the true Appalachian experience. We will educate you in the rich history of a bootleggers run through the Great Smoky Mountains. You will be provided a map passed down from our great-grandad used to run white lighting from one end of the county to the other into NC.
