We are getting geared up for a 3 day weekend ride and informal get-together on the above weekend. We will be leaving the Atlanta area on the am of 6 October with no specific plans. We will be hanging our hats at the KOA campground in Tellico Plains TN http://www.koakampgrounds.com/where/tn/42173/ on Friday the 6th and Saturday the 7th. The campground is clean, quiet and located right at the western end of the Cherohala Skyway. Good restaurants in the area. The campground has plenty of camping sites and still has 6 cabins available for 55 bucks a night. I have stayed there before and enjoyed it quite a bit. There is one cabin left on the Tellico River. I got the other! Each cabin has two beds. Restrooms and showers are the individual mens and womens community type facilities. Typical weather that time of year is ideal for riding. There are good adventure bike roads in the area and more awesome paved roads than you could ride in lifetime. We'd be glad to have anyone join us for any part of the ride. I'll be leaving the MS coast on Wednesday the 4th if anyone is interested in riding up. Edited to add this: For those who can't make it on Friday, but want to meet up Saturday, we'll plan on leaving the KOA campground at 9:30 am for a group ride. If we get enough people we'll break into manageble groups sizes based on riding style and the areas you want to ride. I'll start a list of all interested people here. Paul Barnard Ra2bach Webwench?
