Mark,
Maybe we can meet up and do the 209 together.

I'll be workin' the Welcome Table Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. If you come through when I'm there, I'm the bald-headed guy.

I will be the other bald guy then. By end of week, maybe not! Could rough it and get a bit fuzzy as the week goes on. Coming straight in on Sunday. Sounds like Wednesday would be the best time for ya? I am thinking I will head out early mornings and hit the distance places like the Snake, Diamondback, Suches Run, Six Gap, etc. I can save the 209 and many of those roads for a day together. So many jogs and scenic roads to hit up.
I am site 01 in the Fontana campgrounds. 309- eight, two, six-4388.

Read about that store! So much to see on this trip. What time do guys like to get moving? I don't have set routes and take off time, but if leaving with others, we should have a round up time and go from there. It is hard for me to say when and where I am going day to day, but should we make a small group of distance riders? I ride tank to tank and about 5-9 over the speed limit when alone. 10 minutes gas stops and 30 minute food at noon and evening usually. I change my ways riding with others and let them set the pace so I know what they handle. With my job, I am waking up around 4:30am and toss and turn after that. Any thoughts of who would like to form this kind of ride group? I would say kickstands up no later than 7am??? Open to ideas and thoughts. So many people, so many styles, so many roads! Hard to tell also when someone wants to hit a look out point or just suck it in as you travel by. I handlebar mount a camera and catch what I can for others. Film just isn't the same as seeing it for yourself is my thoughts.


More about me....
I will travel ch 7 on CB. This trip will be with a hand held mic, but will listen over sound system. (Full face helmet has mic, but not wearing that one on this trip.)
I am very good about watching my mirrors and not leaving someone behind. Not many get to far ahead of me, but some of you locals may be able too. I don't let big distance form between people, so know I am just up ahead waiting for ya if something did happen like a light. I am learning to crank u turns now, so I might even come back for ya if traffic allows.
Let me know if you want to join me Monday morning and hit someplace 2-3 hours out and enjoy my listed runs and other roads on way back. Planning early morning take offs each day. Thursday I may cool it down and ride more local. You guys have me interested in Parking Lot challenges. Would love to try an actual lay out! Always trying to improve!

Game plan for me Monday morning....
I would like to be on the road no later than 7am.
Heading toward Bristol, VA. by Interstate in morning.
Will hit 19 on way up.
Riding The Snake (421), then The Python (58).
Working my way South and watching time to be back
Will hit Diamondback and everything I can take in around Boone, Linville Falls, Little Switzerland, Elk Park, etc.
Depending on time left, may hit Chimney Rock (74) and any scenic roads in between.
Will aim to be back at the lodge by 4ish???
I am pulling out right now to head to Wingding in Madison, Wisconsin. Leaving early am for Fontana Dam tomorrow morning and hope camp is up by 6pm their time.

If you want to hit many scenic roads with my plan on Monday, catch me at 01 Campsite at Fontana Dam. I will try to read forum, but may not be able to. Let me know if I should wait for ya or I may pull out by 6 am. Tuesday and Wednesday may be South into Georgia for Six Gap and over to South Carolina area. Then other day will be West for Devils Triangle and all roads that way. I will save hitting the Rattler (209) for Wednesday or Thursday if people wanted to do that together.
Alone I push hard, but if someone wants to go with, I will take their pace and we can map out how much to hit as time allows. Interstate early am gives us time to let fog burn off and best parts for all afternoon as I work the way back. My number is 309-826-43 eight eight if you want to catch me and set up a plan.

I may have a change of plans...... Instead of coming out Monday, I may leave tomorrow. Because of all the "Stuff" I have to bring and couldn't get the second trailer registered in time, Becca is bringing the extra stuff out in the car, then she will head back home. We are expecting a big delivery on Monday and she has to be here to sign for it.

So Gosh Darn it........ I may just have to bite the bullet and do the unthinkable....... head out a day early.......
