    where would be the best central meeting place, or should be all meet at the route beginning?



    Probably we should meet at HCCC so the campers can unload for the ride.

    wilkesboro is the nearest option.

    there are some sweet B&Bs up in blowing rock, but the fastest way there is on gravel roads.

    if all goes as planned, i plan to arrive on friday evening.

    if we want q for lunch and dinner, we will have to blow out of the campground fairly early.

    logistically, i don't know if that's possible for folks.... so we'll just have to play it by ear.

    you remind me of the guy who i rode to alaska with.

    he had a spreadsheet for *everything*.... drove me nuts.

    i am nowhere near that anal, or organized.... hence the title of my column, "always an adventure"

    once we pot things, i'll post more.

    but afaic, this is going to be a play it by ear event. if you're looking for engraved invitations and a schedule of events, printed maps and detailed directions, ummmm......

    for right now, be at the high country motorcycle campground nlt 10am on saturday, 4/18 because if we are going to be able to ride anywhere good for lunch, we better be rolling no later than then.

    it would be better to get there the night before and camp.

    and it goes without saying: be full of gas and empty of bladder.

    hi, glad you're planning to come. read back through this thread and find the links to the campground.

    there are also some gps routes posted that have a waypoint for the place.

    Of course, gotta have

    spread sheet of all participants ie: name, age, bike (make, model, color, mileage, how stored, and all previous two years maitenance records) first born(first, middle, and last names) wife or significant other name, state, and date of birth.

    destinations: overall restaurant ratings, have they ever had a visit from Chef Ramsey, if so what did he find in their walk in, miles and kilometers to their door, and distance of possible wrong turns (IAN) , where their meat comes from and if they smoke it what brand of charcoal is used (I prefer Kingsford)


    etc etc etc

    are you kiddin I don't care just want to know what time to be there and where we are going, I dont care if we get lost or found. LMAO
