I may have to come check it out in the spring. I'm always looking for excuses to get out, ride around and do some camping..especially when beers are involved
And 1/3 of the state isn't all that far when the tiny bus gets 70mpg...

At 20, you've got to be the youngest BMW motorcycle owner/rider I've ever heard of!

CARAVAN is the name of the book that talks about the trip from San Fran to Summertown back in the 60's....fun reading.

I looked up the place a few years ago and the commune is now gone and various members bought parcels of land and still there.

Steven wife, shoots can't remember her name still lives there, not sure what Gaskin is up to. She is a midwife and teaches and still delivers I think. I plan to stop by once we get on the road. I had spent a week there back in the early 70's and liked what I saw.

Gaskin died in 2014 unfortunately. His wife from 1976 on was Ina May Gaskin- "the mother of authentic midwifery".

Oh wow! I just looked it up on Google maps, I've had to have driven within 3 miles of this place 100+ times in my life going from Knoxville/Cookeville to Savannah! I'm heading home for Thanksgiving soon so I may stop in on the way.
thefarm.org

I'll look up that book Caravan, that does sound like a good read.

And EastCoastCB, that picture of the beemer was taken on the way back from a Horizons Unlimited travellers meeting back in October. I was the youngest person there by about ten years!

I'd imagine so! I used to ride a ZRX1200 and I went to a couple of meets and was always the youngin. By at least 10 years!
IF you can find a copy of Roll Your Own, its pretty cool to look through as well. Lots of early 70's "skoolie" goodness in there.
