2013 Spring Fling at the Cabins May 2-5, 2013

Spring Fling 2013 is officially cancelled. I will still honor the 35% discount for the May 2-5 weekend if anyone still wants to head over. Just give me a shout.

Here are some links to past events:

Spring Fling 2011

Fall Fire Ball 2011

Spring Fling 2012

Wha Da Hala 2012

No details but despite that ...

You expect people to be interested enough to block out time
on their calendars?





By the way, that is some low class behavior, posting an obviously commercial ad in
a regional forum.


The ad should be in VENDORS, because you are posting this with the clear intention of
renting your cabins for the event you are advertising.

Joe, same as the other one, if I'm not out of town for work then I'll be there. I should know in a month or so. Hoping to at least make one of the two.

.. these guys are cutting you serious slack .. and I am going to hold back a little myself ..

This EVENT notice is right where it belongs .. so before you screw something up for everyone else by shooting off your mouth about something you know absolutely nothing about you owe Joe an apology, at least, and should do some research before you flap your lips, at best ..

.. you obviously have absolutely no idea how much Joe has done for many riders in providing these EVENTS for beginner through advanced riders, and in promoting the riding community and keeping areas accessible to riders from around the world ..

Here's a few hard and fast facts for you ..
1. Joe TAKES A LOSS financially EVERY time he hosts these events ..
2. There is NO CHARGE for the rides, Joe and several guys DONATE their time and energy for the benefit of other riders ..
3. What he charges is designed to help him break even on the expense of using the cabins (and their utilities) not make a financial windfall .. and HE PERSONALLY takes the hit from his financial partners if the bills are not covered AT THE SEVERELY REDUCED RATES he charges ..

.. the fact that he is one of the co-owners of a business and has the opportunity and WILLINGNESS to VOLUNTEER his time and energy in putting these events together makes your idiotic statements all the more appalling ..

Ironically enough, I can tell you that Joe is one helluva stand-up guy, as are the bulk of the men and women who attend these events, and despite your lack of knowledge and complete lack of courtesy, you would still be very welcome by Joe and among the group of riders whom attend these events annually ..

You would be VERY hard pressed to find a better man than Joe ..

.. as for the event itself .. Thanks (again) Joe for putting together another event this year .. I'll check my work schedule Joe and see if I can make this one (most likely) ..

I'll miss the Ice Breaker for sure since I have both training at work and have a fire academy test that weekend (yeah, all the "kids" get a real hoot out of the "50 y/o phart" busting his hump doing the drills and tests) .. lol .. I did all of these about 27 years ago when I was a volunteer down in Florida and I can tell you it has absolutely NOT gotten any easier .. lol ..

.. see ya in May guys .. ride Blessed ..

Haha. You're a dumbass. You remind me of keyboard jockeys on forums who say "learn how to use search" when someone asks a simple question.

You are making me want a dual sport with all these great events. Do you ever plan anything that's more street oriented?

There is definitely plenty of really good pavement out the front door of the cabins but I look at the twisty pavement as a way to get to the good gravel roads and trails. I guess I've gravitated to the dual sport riding because in the summer, the good pavement can be so crowded with tourist and crazies while the back country stuff is practically deserted. I do know of a few really nice paved rides that are unused during the summer and would be happy to point you in the right direction should you decide to join us.


Bill, Shane, Andrew and Alex,

Thanks for coming to my defense guys. I do host these events for a very selfish reason. They keep me sane. I look forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones every event. I remember the very first one I hosted back in May of 2009. IIRC I think about 3 riders showed up. It was raining the whole weekend. We spent all Saturday morning drinking coffee and shooting the breeze before heading out for a short ride. Last Fall we had the biggest event ever and I got to meet a whole slew of new friends plus a lot of the "Regulars" were there. What a great time. If I didn't have these rallies to look forward to, the grueling 7 days a week grind during the busy summer season at the cabins would really get me down.

Oh by the way, My canonization isn't until next week so I'm not a saint yet.

Hey Bill,

I forgot to send you this, but remember when we pulled off the BRP and found that amazing road after the Fall Rally?

Here are the pictures from it!

No worries, I got them as soon as they were posted and purchased a few. I meant to mention it to you earlier but didn't get a chance. The pics I bought have been my facebook profile pic, desktop background pic, and an 11x17 pic on my cubical at work!

Cultureslayer if you decide to check it out and you're riding in, I can help you string together a NICE paved route all the way from Morganton to the cabins
