I'm riding up to Cruso later today to see that we are all set with Phil. I was going to camp this weekend, but we have a freeze warning in Asheville for tonight and Cruso is about 1000 ft. higher. Bring your footsie PJs and fleece next week folks. I always take at least a sweatshirt to Cruso even in July. The evening can get quite nipply.

Hey Kurt,
If I am a complete wuss and bring a bike down in the truck, could you check with Phil about parking the truck? I believe it can be parked before we go over the bridge.
Thanks
JBeem

That is correct. Four wheel parking is off to your right after entering & before crossing over the bridge.

Jimbo is right about the 4 wheel parking.

I just got back from Cruso and I lived up to my Professor Wackelkontact name. The old airhead just friggin' died as I pulled into the campground. Nothing. No power. No lights. No crankee. No nuthin'. After inspecting the usual suspects on an airhead I found that the bolt attaching the ground cable had come loose and fallen out. After digging around in Phil's shed we found an appropriate nut and bolt and rode on home.

We will have BBQ on Friday and London Broil on Saturday. He did ask if I thought if everyone would be back from the meltdown by 6:00PM Saturday and I said you guys would be anywhere there was food waiting.

It did get down to 33 last night. Let's hope next weekend is warmer here in the mountains!!!

Looks to be comfortably cool next weekend according to the weather.com 10-day forecast. Couple that with reasonably mild temps down here for Thursday & Monday and once again I don't have to bring two riding wardrobes. It hit 92 yesterday in Orlando and 89 over here near the beaches. Should be much nicer for my transit out of and returning into Floriduh - I can handle low-to-mid 80s in my Belstaff cold weather pants as long as I don't have to stop for long. I should only see 80+ rolling back into Floriduh Monday afternoon.

R80 seems to ready. Got half my stuff sorted for packing. Might even get the last of it sorted this afternoon.

I'll be showing up LATE, Saturday, friggen work till 2:30. Had to lie to get Sat and Sunday off. Don't feel too bad about that for what I'm getting paid..LOL. Was planning on hitting 32 and Buzzard's Roost in the Smokies on the way out, but not enough time. Looks like Sunday will be my fun day. Planning on ridding to the Meltdown on Saturday. So no ridding w/ Jenna..she scares me..LOL.

Friday riding

I am going to come a rather longish way so I can enjoy some good roads. I will hit the Blue Ridge Parkway at Highway 421 around 11 AM on Friday. Anyone want to meet? Or we could meet at Walmart in Wilkesboro. Give me a shout here or call my cell; 910-262-2843

Looks like I am out

I had some unscheduled surgery on Wednesday and it doesn't look like it will heal enough for me to make it down.

There will be a cabin available, so call Phil if you need one.

Dang Mike, that sucks. I was looking forward to seeing you again. And I had your Scotch/Tequila glasses sitting on the counter already so I wouldn't forget them.

And I had Leslie order extra grits just for you!!!!






Seriously, take care of yourself! I guess it will be next year before I see you again. I'll be in Germany from August until February so I can't make the Fall Fling.

Get well soon, Mikey!

I'm in possibly for Fri and Sat. Just got a new Triumph Tiger Explorer and need to get the initial service done before Friday. If that happens I'll ride down Friday, not truck like JBeem and XT Traveler, who in fact, I'll be shacking up with .
