Edit: The Aces & Eights Ride is the new plan for Sunday.

Weather and work dependent, I'm looking at a one or two day ride in eastern TN/western NC doing the Cherohala Skyway, The Dragon, and other related routes.

I'll probably camp at Hunts Lodge Motorcycle Campground.

This forum doesn't seem to be used anymore, so not sure if this will fall on deaf ears or, help jump start the forum. I'd be interested in meeting other riders in the region.

If you're interested in meeting up on this trip or others, let me know.....

Suggest you sketch out a plan, and post it. That will make it real and allow others to join their own plans and/or react.

Just noticed the dates on this. It is a Monday and Tuesday. Hard to get people in the week on such short notice.

Looking at the weather Sunday the 21st and Monday have the most promising forecast, but of course in the mountains we won't know for sure until we're actually in it. The rest of the month following that looks like 60% rain days. I think those two are our best best.

I would suggest we meet up Sunday late morning, Saturday looks like a washout, with an optional Monday ride for those who can stay over. I'm glad to see some interest here.

Here's the weather report from Tellico Plains at this point in time...

Disclaimer: I teach at a Community College and am off until August 1st, but I'm also a commercial photographer. There's always a chance a photo shoot could come up that would derail my plans, but I think that's highly unlikely that weekend. I plan to be there weather permitting.
