    I was just telling my wife some people are so shot, they start leaving Saturday morning because they got there so early.

    I spoke with the guy with the newer bike, he is running things by his wife.
    :lol3 He was planning on leaving Wednesday, and he wanted to leave Saturday at the rally. I don't.

    I bet it'll be a lot cooler on the mountain in the shade than it will at the fair grounds .

    ps for those who have big heavey street bikes there is one campsite down by the road next the creek . It'll hold two or three tents .Really nice cool shadey spot under the rhodedendron .

    I will be there with one other Thursday night. He rides a Sprint, but he is used to dealing with my off-road excursions so the driveway should be no problem.

    Rick, I'm planning on camping at the Rally site, but may want to wander over your way part of the time. Do you still have enough room for another bike and tent? Sorting out my options at this point :deal

    Thanks, Mark. (black F650 that was at Boojums Tellico bash last October).

    "out"....:(:

    Thanks for the great offer and I hope that everyone else has a great trip to East Tennessee.

    Is the one on 17 still open? Not that I'm a cigar smoker (I'll stick to the scotch, thanks).

    Rick,
    Can ya squeeze in 1 more Yankee on Weds. night?
    I was originally going to try to get down to Barber before the rally but have been convinced since that it's to far from JC to do a quick overnight and still have time to spend in the museum.
    I won't bring cigars but can certainly uphold the whiskey part of the equation.

    Hey gang, I'll be working so I can't join you at Rick's, but I hope you guys stop by and say hey to me at the rally. Eeickey, Mark, Boojum, Ross, JD, you guys know who you are!!!

    If anyone is still looking for lodging, I learned something I'll share here. We called the Jameson Inn in Johnson City last week and they told us they were full. However, we were able to book them through Yahoo! Travel. $85 a night, we will be there Thurs through Sunday. Undecided if my wife (with a broken back) can handle a ride of that distance on the back of the Tiger, so keep an eye out for either it or our white '07 1500 Crew Cab (work truck trim) in the parking lot. :thumb
