Get ready to rev your engines and ride this week on Tennessee Uncharted as Erick blasts into the world of dirt bikes! Starting out in the fields on a friend’s farm, Erick gets a feel for the mechanics of motorbikes, not to mention a whole lotta mud! From there, the crew makes its way to the Middle Tennessee Dirt Riders Spring Ride, hosted annually at Loretta Lynn’s Ranch in Hurricane Mills. Feeling inspired, Erick tackles the trails himself after a tutorial with six-time AMA (American Motorcyclist Association) National Champion, Jason Raines.
Having been turned on to all the activities at Loretta Lynn’s, Erick talks with Loretta’s granddaughter, Tayla, about what makes the ranch a treasure to be shared with friends, family and visitors alike. With horseback riding, canoeing, camping, kayaking, fishing and family-friendly fun year round, it’s not difficult to see what makes this Humphreys County homestead one of the top tourist destinations in Tennessee. Before Erick travels back home, he talks trout with TWRA officers, taking a look at the process of stocking local streams.
Finally, Erick and the crew lift a few pints, as well as their voices, with the folks of Beer & Hymns—a Nashville-based group that brings together Black Abbey beer, beautiful music and friendly fellowship.
It’s an episode that’s guaranteed to take the whole family for a ride!
