    I am certain that is the case!

    We will be riding up most likely on Thursday to get everything ready for setup. I'll get with you ahead of time and work out the details.... I look forward to seeing you guys there and we'll put the fun in "Funtana"!

    Cherohala Skyway

    While at Fontana Village don't miss riding the Cherohala Skyway. It's a great motorcycle road that lasts for over 50 miles and has great sweeping turns and crosses over 5000 ft. elevation.

    Also ride Hwy. 28 to Franklin. It's a 48 mile run with tight, technical turns. In my opinion it's more fun than Tail of the Dragon due to the fact that it has very little traffic.

    Working out the details on attending this one this year with the same crew that I brought down to Pine Mountain. One of us has never made a trip to that area, so we have to break him in.

    Yeah, I have never made a trip to that area either. Reserved my camping site reservations starting on the 18th.

    You will not be disappointed.

    I did a SAT/SUN run down there in August of '14 with a group from work. Just wanted to mark the Dragon off my bucket list. Found that one road is just the tip of the iceberg. 28 from Deal's Gap to Fontana and past (coming from my direction) was just beautiful and there's PLENTY more. Haven't been back since and have been dying to go so I can hit the Cherohala and maybe part of the BRP. Only question right now is whether or not Household 6 is coming.

    Creech, are you a 58D pilot, do I know you? Either way I'm looking forward to this gig... Big time.

    Negative on the 58D pilot. Just a loggie. I do enjoy the ride though. We can figure out the knowing part in Fontana. It's a small Army. You can talk whirlie birds with my riding buddy that's a Crew Chief on the newest 60 model.
