    With all due regards - my memory of Fontana is the goof sherrif, his equally goofy minions, and the state of North Carolina troppers terrorizing the RA rally with helicopters, road blocks, musical insults and other totally unconstitutional harrrasment., I have not been, and will probably never go back. MOA may think this is a cool place. But I will never go back to there. I remember tham as an abusive pathetic regime. I seldom celebrate death, but that duffus Sheriff's suicide was somethinng the whole world needed.!!!!! Dipshi#$ not withstanding.

    I do not know of this incident you speak of. It sounds like one heck of a party.

    I was told by a little birdy that all the rooms are full. Is that true? I don't know if being registered works if there's nowhere to stay there. Is there anyplace local?

    Chris - It's pretty isolated in that area near the dam. I looked online and found this: http://www.thehikeinn.com Maybe not what you're looking for...

    This is the site that I registered with to camp. It's through the inn that is hosting the getaway. I'm not sure if it's the same site that John linked.

    Yeah, rooms were all taken some time ago as I understand. Of course calling the inn or any close by hotel may meet with success.

    We're booked.
    Hope your Southern Hospitality will extend to a pair of Canadians
    We hope to arrive on Wednesday. We'll be trailering our RT down. It's likely to be too cold to ride down from the great white north.
    We booked a room at the resort. There may be one room left from what I heard.
    We haven't been in the area since 1983, so we're looking forwards to riding some great roads in the area.

    John & Jennie.
