Episode Transcript

(ANNOUNCER)>> THE ONLY THING BETTER THAN WHEELING ON YOUR

FAVORITE OFF ROAD TRAILS IS SHARING THOSE TRAILS WITH YOUR FRIENDS. TODAY ON OUR FIRST EVER XTREME OFF ROAD ADVENTURE WE JOIN TOGETHER WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS ON A FOUR DAY EXCURSION THROUGH TENNESSEE'S BACK COUNTRY ROADS AND FOUR BY FOUR PARKS. PLUS WE'LL EXPLORE THE HISTORY OF DISTILLING WHISKEY IN TENNESSEE, FROM 1866 TO TODAY.

(IAN)>> TODAY WE'VE GOT THE ROCK AUTO DOT COM GIVEAWAY LJ OUT OF THE SHOP AND RIDING SHOTGUN WITH ME IS TOM FROM

ROCK AUTO DOT COM, AND WE'RE HEADING OUT TO DO A LITTLE BIT

OF WHEELING IN THIS RIG BEFORE ONE OF YOU GETS TO WIN IT, BUT I'M NOT GONNA WHEEL ALL BY MYSELF. I BROUGHT A BUNCH OF PEOPLE WITH ME AND WE'RE HEADING OUT ON THE FIRST ANNUAL XTREME OFF ROAD ADVENTURE. JOINING ME ON THIS ADVENTURE ARE RUSTY MEGOIS FROM RUSTY'S OFF ROAD IN A 2014 JEEP JK FOUR DOOR. RICKY BERRY AND CODY GREGORY IN A POLARIS 1,000 SIDE BY SIDE.

BILL MCCLISTER IN HIS HALF CAB JEEP LJ. OPTIMA BATTERIES ULTRA FOUR RACER LUCAS MURPHY DRIVING ANOTHER FOUR DOOR JK. MIKE RUZICKA AND GREG COTTRELL FROM RUGGED RADIOS IN A FULLY BUILT JEEP TJ. RICK AND NICOLE PRATER MADE THE TRIP ALL THE WAY FROM UTAH TO WHEEL WITH US IN THEIR CUSTOM CJ EIGHT JEEP. PARAMOUNT AUTOMOTIVE'S KIM BURNSWORTH IS WHEELING A TWO DOOR JK, AND SO ARE TERRY YOUNG AND CHRIS WAGNER FROM DAYSTAR PRODUCTS. MARK TURNER FROM DAYSTAR SHOWED UP IN A FULLY CUSTOM BUILT 1941 POWER WAGON, AND TOM TAYLOR FROM ROCK AUTO WILL BE IN THE ROCK AUTO DOT COM GIVEAWAY JEEP WITH ME. WHENEVER PLANNING A BIG ROAD TRIP AND WHEELING ADVENTURE PREPPING THE VEHICLES IS VERY IMPORTANT, BUT BEFORE WE HIT THE ROAD THE ENTIRE CREW STOPPED BY THE POWERNATION SHOP TO READY THEIR RIDES. THIS INCLUDED ADDING A WARN UTV WINCH TO THE FRONT OF RICKY'S RAZOR, INSTALLING A PILE OF DAYSTAR CAM CANS TO CARRY EXTRA FLUID BECAUSE WE'RE GONNA BE RUNNING ALL BACK ROADS ON THIS TRIP, AND OF COURSE RUGGED RADIO'S 25 WATT RADIOS IN EVERY SINGLE RIG. SO COMMUNICATING BETWEEN VEHICLES WILL BE A PIECE OF CAKE. WE'RE GONNA BE HITTING FOUR OF MY PERSONAL FAVORITE PLACES TO WHEEL IN TENNESSEE, WOOLEY'S OFF ROAD PARK, SOME PRIVATE LAND IN TRACEY CITY, TENNESSEE, GOLDEN MOUNTAIN OFF ROAD PARK, AND WE'LL END IT ALL AT ADVENTURE OFF ROAD PARK IN SOUTH PITTSBURG, TENNESSEE. TENNESSEE IS KNOWN FOR GREAT WHEELING, BUT IT ALSO HAS A RICH HISTORY IN WHISKEY MAKING, AND RECENTLY THERE HAS BEEN SOMEWHAT OF A RENAISSANCE OF WHISKEY DISTILLING WITH MORE THAN 30 MICRO DISTILLERIES POPPING UP IN THE STATE. SO IN BETWEEN WHEELING WE'RE GONNA EXPLORE THIS RICH HISTORY. WE LEFT THE SHOP IN THE RAIN, BUT EVERYONE WAS IN GOOD SPIRITS AND EXCITED FOR OUR FIRST STOP ONLY 15 MINUTES DOWN THE ROAD, LOCATED IN THE 100 YEAR OLD ORIGINAL GRAINERY OF THOMPSON STATION, HCLARK IS THE ONLY LEGAL DISTILLERY RUNNING IN WILLIAMSON COUNTY IN OVER A CENTURY.

(HEATH)>> IT'S AN OLD COMMUNITY, A LOT OF HISTORY, A LOT OF DISTILLING GOES ON ALLEGEDLY NOT TOO FAR FROM HERE BESIDES US.

THIS IS THE ONLY LIQUOR STORE IN THOMPSON STATION. SO Y'ALL ARE IN LUCK.

(IAN)>> BEFORE HE COULD OPEN UP SHOP, HEATH FIRST HAD TO

USE HIS SKILLS AS A LAWYER. UNTIL A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO DISTILLERIES WERE ILLEGAL IN MOST TENNESSEE COUNTIES. HEATH WAS PART OF THE EFFORT TO CHANGE THAT.

(HEATH)>> THE SMELL OF WHISKEY AND A LITTLE TASTE FOR POLITICS SORTA GOT ME TO WHERE I'M AT.

(IAN)>> FOCUSING ON SMALL BATCHES AND SPECIALTY SPIRITS,

HEATH CLARK IS PRODUCING OLD FASHIONED WHISKEY ONE DROP AT A TIME.

(HEATH)>> OUR MOTTO IS WE'RE NOT HERE TO MAKE A LOT OF WHISKEY. OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE JUST A LITTLE BIT BUT MAKE IT REALLY GOOD.

(IAN)>> UNDER THE ORIGINAL RAFTERS OF THIS GRAINERY CLARK

AND HIS TEAM TAKE CORN AND GRAIN TO CREATE A MASH, WHICH

IS FERMENTED AND DISTILLED USING A PORTUGUESE STILL

DESIGNED FOR A FULL BODIED AND THICK SPIRITS.

HCLARK DISTILLERY CURRENTLY MAKES TENNESSEE BLACK AND TAN, GIN, AND NEW WHISKEY. ONCE THEY'VE FINISHED AGING, RYE AND BOURBON WHISKEYS WILL BE ADDED TO THE LINE UP. WITH THE CLOUDS AND RAIN STARTING TO SUBSIDE, WE PUSHED OUR CONVOY SOUTH TO FINALLY GET SOME DIRT ON OUR TIRES.

ALL RIGHT GUYS, WELCOME TO WOOLEY'S OFF ROAD PARK. CONSIDERING IT'S OUR FIRST DAY AND WE'VE HAD A LITTLE BIT OF A RELAXED START AND LOTS OF FOOD, I THINK WE'LL JUST TAKE, HIT A COUPLE OF EASY TRAILS. SO I WOULD SAY AIR DOWN AND LET'S GET MUDDY. RAIN MAKES EVERY TRAIL IN THE SOUTH HARD, AND AFTER THE RAIN WE'VE HAD THERE IS NO QUESTION THAT THE TRAILS WILL BE SLICK, AND THE FIRST ONE WE HIT IS ACTUALLY NOT A TRAIL AT ALL. IT'S SIMPLY THE ACCESS ROAD TO THE TRAIL, BUT TODAY IT'S TURNED INTO AN OBSTACLE. IT TOOK EVERYONE A LITTLE BIT OF WORK BUT USING SOME OPTIONAL LINES EVERYONE MADE IT UP THE TRAIL AND OVER THE

TOP OF THE HILL THAT WILL DROP US INTO MY FAVORITE SPOT AT WOOLEY'S OFF ROAD. A TRAIL CALLED "WILL HE MAKE IT". A TRENCH STYLE TRAIL THAT ON WET DAYS LIKE THIS PROVIDES MUD, ROCKS, AND FLOWING WATER, BASICALLY TYPICAL TENNESSEE OFF ROAD FUN.

WITH A GREAT MIXTURE OF TERRAIN, IT'S THE PERFECT FIRST STOP FOR OUR GROUP. EVERYONE WAS ABLE TO GET THROUGH THE TRAIL, EVEN IF IT MEANT A LITTLE MORE THROTTLE FOR SOME, BUT IT ONLY TOOK ABOUT 100 YARDS OF TRAIL TO QUICKLY SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TENNESSEE WET DIRT AND WET TENNESSEE ROCKS. THE ROCKS OFFER A LITTLE MORE TRACTION. EVERYONE CONQUERED OUR FIRST OFF ROAD PARK WITH EASE, BUT FOR A FEW OF OUR GROUP WHO MADE THE TRIP FROM OUT WEST TENNESSEE WHEELING WAS A BARREL OF NEW EXPERIENCES.

(KIM)>> IT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT. THERE'S A LITTLE MORE MOISTURE HERE THAN WE HAVE OUT WEST. IT'S KIND OF A NEW CHALLENGE FOR ME BECAUSE I'VE NEVER REALLY BEEN IN THE MUD BEFORE, AND YOU GUYS HAVE GOT SOME PRETTY BIG TREES HERE THAT TEND TO GET IN THE WAY, A LOT OF BRANCHES OVER HANG. BUT IT'S GREAT YOU KNOW, IT'S BEAUTIFUL, IT'S REALLY NICE!

(GREG)>> THE MOST AMAZING THING TO ME IS THAT ALL THE TRAILS ARE CUT THROUGH THE TREES. THE TREES ARE SO DENSE HERE, AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THERE'S A TRAIL THAT HEADS OFF TO THE RIGHT OR HEADS OFF TO THE LEFT, AND IT'S JUST AMAZING TO SEE A TRAIL COME OUT OF NOWHERE.

(ANNOUNCER)>> UP NEXT, IF IT'S TENNESSEE WHEELING IT'S GONNA BE ROCKY.

PLUS IN THE 150 YEAR HISTORY OF JACK DANIELS WHISKEY

THERE'VE ONLY BEEN A SELECT FEW CHOSEN AS MASTER DISTILLER. WE'LL TAKE A TOUR WITH OLD NUMBER SEVEN'S NUMBER SEVEN.

(IAN)>> WELCOME BACK TO THE FIRST EVER XTREME

OFF ROAD ADVENTURE. OUR VERSION OF THE ULTIMATE FOUR WHEELING WEEKEND IN TENNESSEE, EXPLORING OFF ROAD PARKS, BACK ROADS, AND ROAD SIDE ATTRACTIONS. TODAY WE START WITH A TRIP TO A DISTILLERY THAT HAS A HERITAGE THAT GOES BACK OVER 150 YEARS. OKAY GUYS, DAY TWO XTREME OFF ROAD ADVENTURE, FIRST STOP JACK DANIELS WHISKEY DISTILLERY.

THERE ARE NO TRAILER QUEENS ON THIS TRIP, AND EVEN THOUGH NORMALLY AT THIS TIME OF YEAR THERE IS PLENTY OF SUNSHINE,

LIKE YESTERDAY WE ARE ONCE AGAIN RUNNING FROM THE RAIN AS WE MAKE OUR WAY THROUGH THE PICTURESQUE BACK ROADS FOR A VERY SPECIAL TOUR. FROM ONE OF THE NEWEST WHISKEY DISTILLERIES TO THE OLDEST, JACK DANIELS IS SYNONYMOUS WITH THE WORD WHISKEY, AND FOR OUR GROUP WE HAVE THE PLEASURE OF GETTING A PERSONAL TOUR FROM SEVENTH MASTER DISTILLER JEFF ARNETT.

(JEFF)>> EVEN THOUGH WE'RE SOLD IN 160 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD EVERY DROP OF IT IS MADE RIGHT HERE.

(IAN)>> AND THAT SAYS A LOT. LYNCHBURG IS A SMALL TENNESSEE TOWN. HOW SMALL? WELL THE TOWN AND COUNTY HAVE A POPULATION OF RIGHT AROUND 6,000 PEOPLE. THAT MEANS THAT CLOSE TO 10 PERCENT OF THAT POPULATION WORKS AT THIS DISTILLERY. LOCATED IN THE SOUTHERN PART OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE, THE REASON JACK DANIELS HAS NOT MOVED FOR 150 YEARS IS BECAUSE OF ONE THING, WATER.

(JEFF)>> YOU CAN SEE ALL THE LIMESTONE THAT'S HERE.

THAT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE LIMESTONE KINDA SERVES AS A NATURAL FILTER TO REMOVE IRON. YOU KNOW IRON'S ACTUALLY GOOD FOR THE BODY BUT IT DOESN'T TASTE THAT GREAT AND IT DOESN'T DO A WHOLE LOT FOR YOUR WHISKEY MAKING.

(IAN)>> 150 YEARS MAKING TRUE TENNESSEE WHISKEY BECAUSE OF A VERY IMPORTANT PROCESS. JACK DANIELS "STEEPS", OR FILTERS, THE WHISKEY THROUGH CHARCOAL CHIPS THAT THEY PRODUCE ON SITE, MAKING THE WHISKEY SMOOTH TO THE TASTE. OUR GROUP SPENT THE MORNING LEARNING ABOUT JACK DANIELS HIMSELF, THE AREA OF LYNCHBURG, AND EVERYTHING THAT MAKES THIS WHISKEY SO SPECIAL. FINALLY GETTING TO SEE THE COOPERAGE PROCESS. IF YOU SELL OVER 11 MILLION BOTTLES OF WHISKEY A YEAR YOU'RE GONNA NEED A LOT OF BARRELS. THOSE BARRELS SPEND YEARS IN RICK HOUSES, WAITING FOR JEFF TO DETERMINE IF THEY ARE READY TO BOTTLE AND SHIP

OUT OF THE COUNTY. YEP, YOU HEARD, OUT OF THE COUNTY BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH MOORE COUNTY IS HOME TO LYNCHBURG AND HOME TO JACK DANIELS, THIS IS A DRY COUNTY, MEANING THAT NO ALCOHOL CAN BE SERVED BY THE DRINK, BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO LEAVE JACK DANIELS WITHOUT A SOUVENIR.

(MARK)>> I'VE GOT THE BOOTLEGGER TRUCK. I'VE GOT TO HAVE ONE OF THESE TENNESSEE WHISKEY BARRELS. I'M GONNA GO IN HERE TO THE SHOP. HOPEFULLY I CAN BUY ONE, WE CAN LOAD IT IN THE BACK OF THIS TRUCK, AND WE CAN GET ON THE ROAD AND GET BACK UP WITH IAN AND THE GUYS.

(IAN)>> AND WITH THAT WE ARE OFF. WE HAVE A FEW MILES TO GET UNDER OUR BELT TO MAKE OUR NEXT WHEELING DESTINATION, TRACEY CITY IN TENNESSEE. THIS ISN'T AN OFF ROAD PARK. WE'RE HEADING INTO A CREEK BED ON PRIVATE LAND FOR SOME GREAT ROCK CRAWLING ACTION, AND UNLIKE YESTERDAY'S TRAILS, THIS DRY CREEK BED SHOWS HOW VARIED THE TERRAIN IN TENNESSEE CAN BE. ROCKS, ON ROCKS, ON ROCKS, EVEN IF THEY ARE A LITTLE WET.

(LUCAS)>> YOU KNOW IT'S KINDA NEAT. I HAVEN'T BEEN OFF ROAD WITHOUT BEAD LOCKS AND LOCKERS FOR OVER 10 YEARS. SO DRIVING MY BASIC DAILY DRIVER JK WITH UNLOCKED DIFFERENTIALS AND ALL TERRAINS ON IT, NOT A TON OF BODY PROTECTION. IT'S BEEN A CHALLENGE JUST NOT TO BREAK IT OR RUN INTO THINGS, BUT I LIKE IT.

IT'S KIND OF A, IT'S A NEAT NEW CHALLENGE AND IT'S SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

(IAN)>> AND WITH THE BARREL IN THE BACK OF MARK'S BOOTLEGGER, IT'S TIME TO SEE HOW IT HANDLES THE TRAIL.

THIS 1941 POWER WAGON IS PACKING SOME SERIOUS

TECHNOLOGY UNDER THE HOOD, BUT UNDERNEATH IT'S STILL ROLLING WITH OLD SCHOOL CHARM.

(MARK)>> IT'S ACTUALLY A HOOT TO WHEEL. I MEAN I DIDN'T THINK, YOU KNOW, LEAF SPRINGS, YOU KINDA SIT THERE AND WONDER. YOU SAY GEEZ, YOU KNOW, THE LEAF SPRINGS AREN'T GONNA HANDLE WELL BECAUSE I'M SO USED TO DRIVING JEEPS. DRIVE SOMETHING THAT'S FULL SIZE WITH LEAF SPRINGS THAT YOU'VE NEVER RAN BEFORE. IT'S REALLY A GOOD RIDE. I THINK MY FAVORITE PART OF THE TRUCK, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, IS THE COPPER BED. I MEAN IT'S JUST SO DIFFERENT YOU JUST CAN'T HELP BUT NOTICE THE COPPER ACCENTS IN THE TRUCK. I KNOW IT SOUNDS ODD BUT THAT WAS A PRETTY COOL THING TO DO.

(IAN)>> THIS IS ALSO A GREAT PLACE FOR TOM TO FINALLY GET SOME SEAT TIME IN THE GIVEAWAY LJ. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME HE'S DONE ANY SERIOUS HARDCORE OFF ROADING. SO I GRABBED THE RUGGED RADIO'S HAND HELD TO SPOT HIM THROUGH THIS AMAZING CREEK BED. WHAT YOU WANT TO DO IS YOU WANT TO PUT IT IN GEAR, DON'T LET IT START ROLLING, JUST GIVE IT LIKE A WHAPOW, AND IT'LL JUMP OVER.

(TOM)>> THAT WAS A HOOT. I COULDN'T BELIEVE WHILE WE WERE DRIVING. I GO MAN, UNBELIEVABLE.

JUST KEPT GOING, AND I JUST TAKE MY FOOT OFF THE BREAK AND

IT JUST PULLED ME OVER THE ROCKS, AND BIG TIRES, GOOD EQUIPMENT, UNBELIEVABLE.

(ANNOUNCER)>> COMING UP WE REV THE ENGINE AND HEAT UP THE TIRES AT ONE OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE'S MOST EXCITING OFF ROAD PARKS.

(IAN)>> WE HAD SPENT THE NIGHT JUST OUTSIDE TRACEY CITY, TENNESSEE. GOLDEN MOUNTAIN PARK IS JUST ABOUT 80 MILES AWAY. THAT MEANS A COUPLE OF HOURS OF BACK ROADS AND WINDSHIELD TIME IN ALL OF OUR RIGS, BUT WHEN YOU'RE ENJOYING GOOD SCENERY AND THE COMPANY OF GOOD FRIENDS, A COUPLE HOURS OF DRIVING IS NOTHING AT ALL. I CONSIDER MYSELF LUCKY TO BE ABLE TO CALL THIS STUFF MY JOB. I GET TO BUILD AMAZING RIGS AND TRAVEL ALL OVER THE COUNTRY TO WHEEL THEM, AND IT WAS ON ONE OF THOSE TRIPS WHERE I ORIGINALLY MET RICK AND NICOLE.

(RICK)>> WE MET HIM A FEW YEARS AGO AT EASTER SAFARI WITH A PICK WE HAD BUILT, AND HE WAS CHECKING IT OUT, AND HE TOLD US ABOUT THIS TRIP, AND I ASKED HIM HOW, WHAT WE NEED TO DO TO BE ABLE TO COME, AND HE SAID IF WE WERE WILLING

TO DRIVE TO TENNESSEE WE COULD COME.

(IAN)>> EVERY YEAR WE CRAWL THROUGH THE RED ROCKS OF MOAB TOGETHER. THIS TIME THEY CAME TO MY NECK OF THE WOODS FOR SOME VERY DIFFERENT SCENERY.

(NICOLE)>> YEAH A LOT OF TREES, WHICH IT'S TIGHT BUT IT'S NICE BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT MORE SHADE.

SO IN MOAB IT'S JUST HOT ALL THE TIME. YOU GET OUT THERE ON THAT ROCK AND YOU'RE HOT. HERE YOU GET A LITTLE BIT OF SHADE WHEN YOU'RE GOING DOWN THE TRAIL.

(IAN)>> MILES CLICKED BY AS WE ROLL THROUGH SMALL TOWNS AND INTERESTING SITES, AND BEFORE WE KNOW IT WE'RE PULLING INTO GOLDEN MOUNTAIN PARK. I WOULD CALL ONE OF THE BEST KEPT SECRETS IN THE SOUTH FOR OFF ROAD PARKS CAUSE A LOT OF PARKS GET A LOT OF ATTENTION,

BUT THIS PARK, IF YOU GET IN AND RIDE IT, IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR HARDCORE FUN WHEELING THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO BE. EVERYONE AIRED DOWN AND WE HIT THE TRAIL.

LIKE MOST PARKS, GOLDEN MOUNTAIN OFFERS MANY DIFFERENT TYPES OF TRAILS, FROM MILD TO WILD, AND JUST LIKE OUR LAST TWO STOPS THE RAIN ADDS TO THE DIFFICULTY, AND WHAT WOULD NORMALLY BE A SIMPLE RING ROAD QUICKLY BECOMES A SLIPPERY, SLOPPY MESS.

(RUSTY)>> THE MOAB SLICK ROCK HAS TRACTION TO IT, AND THIS IS MORE LIKE SNOT ROCK.

IT'S GONNA GET WET AND YOU'RE GONNA GET CLAY MUD UP ON IT, AND YOU'RE JUST NOT GONNA GO ANYWHERE.

(IAN)>> IT TOOK SOME THROTTLE AND A FEW HITS, BUT RUSTY WAS ABLE TO GET HIS JK OVER THE LEDGE AND UP THE TRAIL. NOTHING NEW FOR SOMEONE WHO'S BEEN THE OFF ROAD BUSINESS AS LONG AS HE HAS.

(RUSTY)>> BASICALLY YOU HAVE TO JUST BACK DOWN AND GO WITH MOMENTUM. YOU KNOW, BUILD SPEED AND HIT IT, AND JUST NOT BACK OUT OF IT. KEEP ALL FOUR TIRES SPINNING AND GO FOR IT.

(IAN)>> WE SPENT THE REST OF THE DAY EXPLORING GOLDEN MOUNTAIN, HITTING A FEW OF THE JUST 50 PLUS TRAILS THAT THIS PARK HAS TO OFFER. SOME MORE DIFFICULT THAN OTHERS.

(ANNOUNCER)>> UP NEXT HERE COMES THE SUN, FINALLY!

(IAN)>> IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT WE ARE NEARING THE END OF THIS ADVENTURE. WE'VE TRAVELED OVER 350 MILES OF BACK ROADS AND HIGHWAYS. WE'VE SEEN MUD, ROCKS, AND EVEN A COUPLE OF HILL CLIMBS, AND A COUPLE OF TIMES WE EVEN SAW THE SUN. TODAY IT LOOKS LIKE WE'RE ENDING IT OFF WITH AMAZING WEATHER IN SOUTH PITTSBURG, TENNESSEE.

(DAVID)>> ALL RIGHT, SO WE HAVE 500 ACRES OF PROPERTY HERE. ANYTHING FROM YOUR STOCK RIGS ALL THE WAY UP TO YOUR ROCK BOUNCERS, SIDE BY SIDES, ATV'S, JEEPS, YOU NAME IT EVERYBODY COMES OUT HERE AND PLAYS.

(IAN)>> ADVENTURE OFF ROAD PARK IS A RELATIVELY NEW PARK IN TENNESSEE. IT OFFERS AMAZING TRAILS FOR RIGS FROM MILD TO WILD, AND WITH THE SUN SHINING IT'S A GREAT PLACE FOR US TO END THE XTREME OFF ROAD ADVENTURE. TRAILS AT AOP ARE RATED LIKE A SKI HILL WITH EASY GREENS, MEDIUM BLUES, AND DIFFICULT BLACK DIAMONDS. SINCE THIS IS OUR LAST DAY, TODAY IT'S GONNA BE ALL HARD TRAILS AS WE HEAD INTO TRAIL 41, A ROCKY LOOP TRAIL THAT

WILL TAKE EVERYONE PAST SOME OF THE BOUNTY HILLS THAT MAKE THIS PARK SO POPULAR.

(GREG)>> SO WE HAD A CHANCE TO GO OVER AND SEE THE BOUNTY HILL.

I'VE ALWAYS SEEN THESE THINGS. THESE GUYS ARE CRAZY. WE HAVE NOTHING LIKE BOUNTY HILL AT WHERE WE'RE FROM, AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY OUT OF CONTROL. I'M GONNA HAVE TO COME OUT AND WATCH IT.

I DON'T WANT TO DO IT MYSELF BUT I'M GONNA HAVE TO COME OUT AND WATCH IT.

(IAN)>> WE WORKED OUR WAY THROUGH A FEW MORE TRAILS AT

THE PARK WITH EVERYONE HAVING A GREAT TIME EXPERIENCING TENNESSEE WHEELING WHEN IT'S A LITTLE DRIER THAN OUR OTHER DAYS. HAVING TRACTION MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE, AND OUR GROUP WAS ABLE TO EVEN HIT A FEW HARDER SPOTS.

[ engine revving ]

(IAN)>> WITH OUR FINAL WHEELING SPOT DONE WE HAD ONE MORE STOP TO FINALIZE THIS AMAZING TRIP, A MICRO DISTILLERY IN CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE. CHATTANOOGA WHISKEY OPENED IN THE SPRING OF 2015 AND IS THE FIRST DISTILLERY TO OPEN IN CHATTANOOGA IN 100 YEARS. CHATTANOOGA IS A CITY THAT'S PROUD OF ITS HERITAGE AND ITS NAME. SO HAVING A WHISKEY BROUGHT INTO THE CITY WAS EMBRACED BY THE TOWN, AND CHATTANOOGA WHISKEY HAS BECOME A DESTINATION FOR LOCALS AND TOURIST WHO LEARN ABOUT THIS SMALL DISTILLERY'S HISTORY AND WHISKEY MAKING PROCESS FROM

GRAIN TO GLASS, AND THAT BRINGS OUR XTREME OFF ROAD ADVENTURE TO AN END. WE'VE HAD A GREAT TIME WITH SOME GREAT FRIENDS.

(KIM)>> A LOT OF IT HAS TO DO WITH THE CAMARADERIE, YOU KNOW, THE GROUP YOU'RE WITH. BEING OUT WITH LIKE MINDED PEOPLE, CHALLENGING YOURSELF, CHALLENGING YOUR EQUIPMENT.

(MARK)>> TENNESSEE A LITTLE BIT NEW FOR ME BUT IT'S AWESOME BECAUSE IT'S GREEN, IT'S WET, IT'S DRY, IT'S ROCKY, YOU KNOW, IT'S GOT A LOT TO IT, AND PLUS THE PEOPLE ARE REALLY COOL. LIKE WHEN YOU STOP FOR LUNCH AND EVERYBODY'S HAPPY TO SEE YOU.

(LUCAS)>> I MEAN I THINK THE ATMOSPHERE IS COOL. THE COMMUNITY OF IT'S ALL COOL. YOU KNOW I'VE GOT GREAT FRIENDS BECAUSE OF FOUR WHEELING ALL OVER THE WORLD.

(TOM)>> IT WAS A LOT OF FUN, AND THE SENSE OF COMMUNITY WAS SO WONDERFUL. NOW ALL THE DRIVERS AND RIDERS PITCHED IN IF THERE WAS A

PROBLEM, OR HELPED SOMEBODY OUT UP OR DOWN A HILL.

(GREG)>> TRYING TO PICK OUT WHAT MY FAVORITE THING IS, THE

WHOLE TRIP WAS MY FAVORITE BECAUSE IT REALLY ENCOMPASSES EVERYTHING ABOUT TENNESSEE AND ABOUT GETTING OUT HERE IN THE WOODS AND HAVING FUN.
