I usually hit the Smokeys in October. I'm pretty well tied up for the rest of August, between my daughter being home from Europe for three weeks and some other time commitments I already have.

I thought an informal cook and jam, with families optional.

that way there's a way to bring gear if so desired.

I'll be up that way over Labor Day weekend. Checking in to an Ironhorse Lodge camp site on Thursday the 30th.

Really looking forward to wearing rubber off of the sides of my tires!

Where are you thinking? I'm in North GA - not too far away - might could make it for a day if you were close enough.

that's exactly what I am talking about, so basically I'm doing something good for the environment, sort of.

The wife and I are heading up to Franklin NC for the Smokey Mountain Rally that weekend, let me know if you will be near there. Eric, what part of North GA are you in?

Smoky Mountain Rally in Franklin, checked the site, not much info there
that's the weekend of the 18th. It says it's their first year. Same weekend as Ironton, OH

I did happen to find a great map of 16 smoky mountain waterfalls here

Have been meaning to see Wheels Thru Time, Maggie Valley, NC

Iron Horse looks a little nicer than most places, they're almost booked solid, probably a good sign.

I'll do some more digging, and see how committed the family is, if I need a cabin, room or tent site.

Basically, I'm still thinking the 25th in NC, as the following weekend is the easyrider show in Chilocothe, a proud display of hedonism, if you've never been, go

The rally in franklin is close enough for me to go without having to take a long time off of work, it is the first year, i do know Charlie Daniels will be there on Friday, and Kelly Pickler on saturday night, hoping for a greatime! I do know week before last when i made my room reservations at the Hosting hotel, they said i got the last room, maybe there will be a great turn out, if not, there will be some good riding to do!

looking forward to seeing the wheels in time museum.
