    I've been lurking...watching this thread..thinking to myself "if I do go, should I ride up on Mad Max (my KTM 950) or trailer, yes I said trailer :huh, the DRZ?". Right now, I'm leaning toward Max because it sounds like there are going to be a lot of other beasts there for him to play with.

    Count me as a maybe. I still need to see how some other things play out.

    Hope things work out.

    I will be flying in from NYC with my buddies and renting bikes from Lt. Dan, and we thought it would be a good idea for us to fly back Monday morning so we have a chance to stay somewhere overnight where we can clean up after three days of camping and playing in the dirt:D. Would anyone have an idea whether there's some place close to Knoxville airport that would be suitable - doesn't have to be fancy as long as there's a shower. Right now it looks like there'll be three of us.

    Although the airport is a small one, there are plenty of places to stay nearby.
    Hilton
    HI Express
    Courtyard
    Comfort Suites

    Search Alcoa. It's the town that the airport is nearest.

    All of the West side of Knox is decent, with more places to stay, eat, etc. For that search Turkey Creek (not a town, but a 'burb within Knoxville). It's 15-20 minutes from the a/p.

    Put TroyJ down for 2. Myself and a free agent player to be named later.

    I assume IHF will speak up for himself.

    As a note, we lined up lodging close to the site, nothing personal, just too big of a puss to consider sleeping in a tent, in March, in the mountains, with bears...... but mostly because I'm a puss.....

    Hey Kevin,

    I will be there and you already have me on the list. Russ Kruse( Kruser ) will be there also. We will be trailering up and will be there on Thursday.

    Russ will be on his GS and i will either be on my x challenge or my new WR450F so either way put me down for "DIRT"

    Russ will probably do the dirt dragon again

    See YA

    Lt Dan has a cabin on the river and a vintage trailer at his place in Townsend that he rents out. 20-30 mins from airport. I'm sure you can make arrangement with him to get you to the airport. Check with him.

    Can't hang around? I'm bringing a designated driver to get me back to the cabin! :freaky

    hmmmmm.....So my choice is a nice, warm bed and a shower, or sit around outside with a bunch of smelly, dirty, motorcycle riders, then crawl into a tent .......... The ONLY issue I have with that scenario is the crawliing into a tent part...... let me get back to you on that one.... surely there is another option there somewhere. :lol3

    Designated driver. Nice :freaky
    Once we closer we'll see what the weather is maybe it won't be so cold.

    I may be sleeping in the van with the seats taken out since I gotta trailer with crap.

    There is room for campers if thats an option for anyone.

    Hey Kev, I'm already on your list but am bringing a buddy with me who will be registering soon. I have another friend that lives 10 miles up the skyway that will be with us as well. He's on a 690r and knows all the forest roads pretty well. We're tent and bonfire bound. So make that 3 more dirtbikes on your list. Don't care what we ride as long as the wheels are turning. If I can pick up a supermoto for my wife between now and then, she'll be there for the street and gravel. No camping for her though.
