    Pulled out super early this morning...about 0900 :-)...nice drive up to Maggie Valley NC...my buddies will be here in a few hours. They have a suite reserved at the Holiday Motel downtown Maggie....great place...like a cool 50's motor court owned by a young guy named Rob and his beautiful wife.

    I mentioned to Rob that my friends had reservations and would it be possible to park the van near the motel...sure!...he said to park next to the motel in the beautiful grass area...he owns that too. He's also a motorcyclist. It's a treat when you meet such great people on the road :thumb

    Here's a link to the motel...you guys and girls need to support them :thumb

    Perfect grassy spot that's high and dry...and my favorite Mexican restaurant is right cross the street!!!!

    Got a dentist appointment Wednesday for my annual tune up and probably be headed back to Florida after that.

    I can’t recommend the Holiday Motel enough. The owners Rob and Gabi are two jewels of human beings.
