My dad turns 60 this week and we have discussed a 24 hour ride for a few years now. Well this past weekend we made it happen, 24 hours of windrock. Three buggies, 24 hours, almost everything difficult the park offered except for a few off the beaten path we didnt get to. Would of been 4 buggies if Greg didnt have to leave early.

Friday start time of 12:30 pm in main parking, around 30 gallons of gas per buggy, around 150 miles traveled, and end time of 12:40 pm on Saturday.

Since we started at main parking on the south side, we started with south side trails. We went 22, 21, 15, little mule, all of rattle rock, schoolbus, 39, rail trail, and 3. It was close to 8pm when we dropped back into main parking for gas. We topped the buggies off then hit the highway towards atomic ridge. When we got to atomic ridge, it was dark and raining on us. We had to winch the bottom section, climbed the middle section, and I ended up having to winch the very top rock. We dropped off the backside to t11, out 11 to main gravel and headed to the north side of the mountain. G50 to g52 to Vowell mtn rd and we was in downtown Rocky Top for fuel and mcdonalds at midnight. From downtown Rocky Top, a few gravel roads up to t62 took us to the Caryville flats. On top of the flats at 1:10 am. We kept north and crossed over into twra state property making a huge loop that put us out at the eternal flame at 3:15 am. From the flame we went to Norma rd and looped into the community of Clinchmore and back into windrock property at 5:00 am. Once back on windrock property, we rode undisclosed locations putting us on top of the last big deep mine at 6:30 am. It was awesome watching the sun come up while riding. G53 to g52 and back down Vowell mtn Rd took us back into downtown Rocky Top for the last fuel stop and breakfast at cracker barrel at 9:00 am. Leaving Rocky Top for the last time, t72 to g55 took us to the devils butthole trail (devils elbow t54a) then on to more undisclosed locations bringing us to t54 and down the devils butthole at 11:30 am. From there is was 53, 52, g52, g50 and down hwy 330 back to main parking at 12:40 pm. The buggies performed basically flawlessly, we never popped a hood, opened a tool bag, or worked on anything the entire time except airing up my rear tire a few times. A trip for the books and the hardest intentional 24 hour ride you can pull off at windrock park. I'll load pictures in a minute.

Amazing. I'm exhausted just reading about it.

About how many road miles you think you put on your tires?
Around 45 guessing. Windrock main road up the mtn is like 2 or so, so thats 4. Hwy 330 and up hwy 116 is around 10 so theres 24 then probably 10 miles around Norma Rd plus the two trips into Rocky Top at 5 a piece roughly. Lost solid 3/16 tread on this trip lol.
