    Guy, if you do this on the third weekend in July and don't mind one more person tagging along I'd appreciate it if you keep me in mind.

    Kevin, of course I wouldn't mind you tagging along - silly boy. I'd love to have you join us - however - looks like it may be the fourth w/e. The others I have asked won't be available until then. I (literally) just suggested heading down on the 25th. (Thursday), ride the area Friday and Saturday, then head back Sunday.

    Still waiting to hear back from them, but if that works out for you - please - come along.

    Looks like a few of us "locals" will be headed down there for a long w/e of July 25th.

    Not knowing if the TW of Suches' kitchen will be working full bore by then, so please tell me about Rider's Hill, since it wasn't around the last time I was down that way. We'll probably be getting in the late afternoon of the 25th. and will be looking for some vittles. :ear

    Just found the website for Rider's Hill and the Six Gap Cafe, but looks like it may be closed by the time we get there. Guess we'll need to head all the way into Dahlonega and grab a bite somewhere.

    Check out Gustavo's on the square. Great food, service can be a hit or miss. He's a local rider so we support when we are there.

    Many thanks for the suggestion.

    Have eaten at several places in and around the square in years past, but will certainly take them into consideration once we get there. As road weary as we'll be, the "service" factor shouldn't be a problem; Good time to just chill.

    Planned trip is a month off and I'm already getting pumped. In years past when I was travelling solo, after leaving work at 5:00 I'd usually make my way down to the campground across from the Pisgah Inn on the BRP, or go all the way to the BRMC. For this trip, think we'll head to the BRMC for the first night, then meanander our way down to Suches. Been a long time and I'm racking my brain to remember some of the great roads we travelled to get there. That was all pre-GPS and I'm sure some of them will come to me once I get in the area.

    And now the question: Connie, or KLR? :huh

    Like I said, getting pumped. :clap

    Hope you can make it. Have seen your posts over the years and would be nice to finally meet you.

    I'll keep you informed as the time grows closer. I love that area and am looking forward to getting back down there after several years absence.

    Best.........

    $18 Is a little much for a tent site. compare to BRMC, WILLVILLE, DEALS GAP (THE Store), and IRONHORSE MC LOdge--$12 to $15 is my cap. i ride alone so expect to pay $9 , just like the couples who pay $18.

    Stopped by on Saturday for a burger. The burger and fries was good and plenty to eat. They had added a few things to the lodge since I was there 2 weeks earlier.

    There was a fair sized crowd but less than the old TWO normally got on such a nice day.

    [​IMG]

    The GSP even stopped in to talk some riders with incorrectly mounted plates. No tickets were issued.

    Progress is being made on the bath house. Bill said if everything goes perfectly it will be ready for 4rth of July weekend.

    klaviator, thanks for those pics and the update. It looks like they have really put some serious effort into the whole place. That bath house looks like it is going to be the premiere shower facility in the region. :evil

    Unless hell freezes over between now and the 25th., three of us will be headed out early a.m., with the ultimate destination being TW of Suches.

    Planning on spending Thurs. night at the BRMC, then head out Friday a.m. for the run down to Suches; route TBD.

    Probably went down there 12 years straight in the fall for a COG rally a number of years ago..... and traveled on some really nice roads to get there. Problem now is that I can't remember half of them. I do remember Wayah Road, and may hit it on the way down just for old time sake.

    Regardless, we're going and will get there eventually. :clap

    I rode up Sunday morning to breakfast and the Moto GP race. There was a pretty good crowd as these guys and gals were having a "reunion"

    I hope to be up that way next week, probably on Tuesday, and plan on stopping by. Any of you guys know the opening and closing times?

    edit to say: I am heading up from Savannah on Monday, gonna ride the Six Gap on Tuesday. If anyone wants to join me let me know. Shoot me a PM.

    The 2013 Edition of "Chomp-da Dogs" is scheduled for November 16th, 2013. We are welcoming the Grand Tour of Georgia Riders to come on down also as that tour finishes that week also. This will be the third year for our little RTE and we're looking to getting together with old and new friends at Nu-Way Weiners once again.

    Due to the expected larger turnout and to be able to accommodate everyone more comfortably we'll move to the Nu-Way #8 location on Zebulon Road off Exit 9 of I-475. The address for you luddites with paper maps is 6016 Zebulon Road • Macon, GA 31210 • 478/474-5933 This location is part of a small food court and has more seating than the original Cotton Avenue downtown Macon store. The location is on the South side of Zebulon between Wendy's and Buffalo's and in front of the Kroger Store. The hours for the Zebulon Road location are 6:30 AM to 10:00 PM so feel free to come early for breakfast and tire kicking. We'll plan on the main gathering from 10:30 AM until 12:00 Noon when we'll announce the Long Distance Award and maybe something else. Remember," I'd go a Iong Way for a Nu-Way "
