There are directions from Oliver Springs but I have never traveled that way before but some of the other club members have. Maybe GIP or one of them will chime in on that.

You don't have to worry about it being titled. We don't have a title on our 02 Honda. Just the Certificate of Orgin.

Well we have rode that quad about everywhere I can think of and haven't had any problems. About the only thing that it would prevent you from doing is getting a tag. But wait you can't tag a quad in Tennessee.

[quote="powerbomb400"]... But wait you can't tag a quad in Tennessee.[/quote]
Actually it is tagged... just this one is a small sticker with a "TDS" number on it. The sticker is in-lieu of a license tag. The number is placed in the same place on the title application (same application as is used for automobiles) as the regular license tag number.

TDS = Tennessee Dept of Safety

Well,

I plan on going for sure, but the tag issue is disturbing. I tried to register my used ATV I bought and they said I didn't pay enough for it. After a lengthy pointless discussion, I was able to get the TDR sticker and the temporary registration. I was told the state probably wouldn't send me a title even though the Ohio title I had was made out to me by the former owner! This is why it is now TDR stickers. Instead of safety, the state is more concerned about REVENUE! There is little chance of being pulled over in a trailblock, but it did happen to me once a few years ago at Royal Blue. The guys over there said it never happened before or since. With TDEC and TWRA in an uproar among themselves, I doubt they will mess with a few ATV'ers anyway. Good ideas, I guess, about being from another state. Alabama doesn't even mess with titling or registering an ATV. I guess our shoes and boots will require a TN registration next! lol

Is Black House Mtn Rd safe to park on? I read a thread a while back about some thefts and vandalism in that area.

Have heard of some issues up there in the past. It is always good to use common sense no matter where you are parking your vehicle and trailer. I would think the chances of getting broke into are just about the same as going to Walmart and getting broke into. I hear of theft's there too. I am not saying it could not happen, but don't leave things out in the open inside the cab, lock ramps and trailers. Give them an opportunity and they will take it.
