    I know it's early, but setting far away goals gives me all the time in between to get excited about it and prepare, which to me is half the fun. I was thinking maybe we can organize a SM1000 ride in June 2018? http://advrider.com/index.php?threads/smokey-mountains-1000.1233049/
    This way we have plenty of time to organize traveling options, request vacations, etc.. Interested?

    I would be interested in the 500mi option.

    I love camping, so I'd say camping, but I know some people prefer more comfort. Maybe we can find spots that have both cabins and camping so everybody is happy.

    Guys - This may be a bit premature, but.... my wife and I just bought a vacation house in Hiawassee Ga. If you check out the SM500 route, Hiawassee is within a few miles at one point. If we're up there when you decide to do this trip, we "might" be able to provide some tent spots, lodging, bike storage, support, trailer parking, etc. My wife is not active in the whole ADV thing like my bro and I but I might be able to get her on board (pending the numbers in your group and timing). Heck, depending on timing, my bro and I might join in the fun since we planned to do the same trip next summer.

    That's a generous offer thank you, we should definitely keep that in mind.

    I would be interested in participating in at least portion of the ride. However, throwing a bunch of riders together with differing abilities and equipment can create an awkward situation, as I have learned from earlier events. That being said, should an "Old & Slow" contingent develop, count me in!
