Mr Mark O, you better hit up the Smoky mountain diner for Pie, had a great piece of berry pie there a couple years ago. Along with a large glass of milk, it made a great breakfast.

Refresh my memory. Where's this place and what's the name of it? I'm planning a couple of trips down there this year.

Walking distance from the campground in hot springs, on 209 just w of the intersection of 70/25.

If you get a short older waitress, give her a hard time, she dishes it back in spades, and it is very entertaining.

Well, I left a message. We'll see if they check those.
Maybe I'll just wing it like usual. My plan is to get #522 to share with three other campers.
Hey Kyle, count me in if it's OK.

Pretty sure it's behind the store where we got beer and Cheetos this fall.

Laugh Hotsprings Nottarally Pavement/Gravel Ride

THIS IS NOT THE ONLY RIDE.
THERE WILL BE OTHER RIDES LEAVING FROM THE CAMPGROUND.
CHOOSE ONE THAT SUITS YOU.

Weather Permitting:
KTM Mike's Pavement/Gravel Ride:
Quickpace Nottarace, We move as a unit.
Rated M for mature riders only. SAFETY is first.

About equal parts twisty pavement & twisty gravel.
This ride is best for the big Adventurebikes and Supermotos.
Street tires or street oriented dualsport tires work fine (Knobbies NOT necessary)
We will use the usual relay system if there are enough riders to warrant it.

Pack a "lunch" and drink, or pick it up at the Campstore before departure.
I usually carry beef jerky, trail mix & gatorade.
We will stop wherever we are at about the right time.
(Eat to ride, not ride to eat . . . . . . . ).

Sat April 28,
Meet 9:30am at pitnik tables between Campstore and Bridge.
Standard RDV Ride Rules Apply:

1.Please show up to your ride with a full gastank.

2. Please show up to your ride at least ten minutes before departure time.

3. In order to avoid delays during the ride:
a. No passing others in the group regardless of whether they are moving or standing still. If the rider in front of you stops, YOU STOP WITH HIM. That means that everyone behind you will stop too!
(Suppose the rider in front of you slows down because his bike is breaking down or because he has a flat tire. If you continue past him, the leaders see you coming and procede further and further from the problem. Confusion like this makes for a long day). If everyone stops, the leaders will return shortly.
b. If you want to swap places in line, please do so during a stop.
c. If you want to split early/mid-ride, stop and tell the sweep what you are doing so we don't spend time looking for you (and make sure you have the maps to find your way back to camp).

4. Ride at your own pace:
NEVER try to catch up to riders in front of you. They are not leaving you behind. Continue straight ahead. Someone will be waiting for you at the next left or right turn.

5. Safety:
Please leave plenty of room between yourself and the rider in front of you. When he has to slam on his brakes, he doesn't need you crashing into the back of him and ruining EVERYONE's day. Also, there is nothing worse than having to change the way you ride all day because of what's going on in your mirror. If a rider keeps getting too close behind you, flash your brake lights repeatedly as a reminder to BACK OFF.

6. Tire repair:
a. All riders with tubed tires should carry a spare tube the size of their largest diameter tubed tire.
b. All riders with tubeless tires should carry a plug kit.
c. Bring tire-pump if you've got one.

7. Cash:
Carry cash for gas please. Rural gas stations often do NOT take credit/debit cards.


8. No whining.













Mike
