    Default Durhamtown Telico

    Apparently during my absence from the forums, the enterprising group from Durhamtown Plantation in GA expanded

    Durhamtown Telico is open. And yes, for us older folks, the name Telico means a lot.

    More info: http://www.durhamtowntellico.com

    Support your regional OHV parks, before they are only memory.

    One reason heard was the impact to the watershed.......which is NOTHING like a watershed out west.

    Recent reports had bulldozers building......a road for a subdivision....as if that is low impact.

    Anyway, more on Durhamtown Telico:

    And honoring the old Telico ratings:

    Spare Film rated:

    Spare Tire rated:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0H4iA73po-0"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0H4iA73po-0[/ame]

    Thinking this will be Spare Driveshaft before too long:

    Another spare film rated:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qa7BbSBh3c"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qa7BbSBh3c[/ame]

    Nothing yet that I could tell was Spare Vehicle rated...but this is the SE mountains....if not now, something like Schoolbus will be found.

    I need to get wrenching!!!

    For those that have never seen the legend that was Telico...

    This vid from 4x4TV was posted roughly 2-3 years after Telico was closed. The SFWDA put up a good fight, but the powers that be were unmoved.

    Both my old CJ-5 and my 1991 Explorer have wandered the trails in Telico, obviously the CJ did much more.

    Yeah, that seems to always what makes the local governments get after those of us with motorized hobbies that don't turn left a dozen or more times.

    I happen to like racing, BTW.

    I still have my hare scramble bike and my enduro bike, and raced three wheelers when Honda had that 250 with full suspension.

    Never got to race the 4 wheeled stuff, wanted to.

    It is more expensive, but I had a business designing and installing lift kits at the time, so the business paid for R&D
