Exclamation ATTN: Buckeyes! Caravan to Spring Training Camp!

While it is still 2-1/2 months away, I thought we'd start gathering the troups and see if we can get some new people down to our favorite Spring event ... Spring Training Camp!!!

I have all of my ducks in a row already (i.e. on the roster, time off, cash set aside, etc...), and I'm asking my fellow Buckeyes to do the same. I'm sick-n-tired of this thing called "Winter" so it's nice to start thinking about riding again.

Let's get down to the Great Smoky Mountains and RIDE!!!!!!!

April 14-16. Click on the link in my original post for all of the details. This is simply a GREAT way to kick off the riding season for us snowbirds. I haven't missed this get-together yet.
Think of this as Spring CCR for the COOL KIDZ!

Re: ATTN: Buckeyes! Caravan to Spring Training Camp!

Hey Joe (and other Buckeyes),

We finally figured out our plans for STC. Lisa and I (yes, both of us) will be arriving at the Iron Horse Lodge on Saturday, 4/16. For the first time since our first visit to the area (STC 2006) Lisa and I are able to do this trip together, and I'm really excited that this time we are not trailering the LT down there.

Current thinking is we will leave Friday 4/15 after work, ride 2-4 hours, then finish the trip on Saturday 4/16. So, unless you are traveling those days you won't be seeing us until we get there.

We'll stay at the Iron Horse some number of days, to be determined in the next few days. The idea is for us to poke around the area, showing Lisa the things we have seen in the last few trips, notably Highland, NC and many of the small towns, sights, waterfalls, etc. in the area.

Looking forward to it!

While I'm glad to hear that both of you are making the trek ... you'll be arriving while many are making their exit plans. But, kay sara sara. I do plan on staying thru Sunday ... and maybe thru Monday. I don't have to be back to work until Wed, the 20th.

I hear you, but if I ride down on Wed. or Thu. then Lisa has to DRIVE a car down there, which means two vehicles to take back home. Seems pretty wasteful, and getting there (and back) is half the fun, eh?

We both have the entire week after STC off, leaving us to use the Iron Horse as our base for exploring the area at our own (slow) pace. And, we'll be there Saturday night for that prime rib dinner.

Hello OHIO crew

Can't say for sure if I can make it this time, but just talking about it has the old brain working overtime. And like you and Lisa, Howard , Carol is off the week of the 18th-22nd?

Don't count me out though, I have had enough of this _ _ _ _ _ _ _ winter already.

Out

Well, Glen, that sounds like karma to me -- you're destined to ride with us (and Steve on his Gold Wing) to STC one more time. If you decide to ride down on Joe's timetable that's cool, and if you decide to come down later that works, also. Either way we'd like to see you there.

If you can spend a few days there the week of the 18th let's think about some places to visit.

Re: ATTN: Buckeyes! Caravan to Spring Training Camp!

Hey Howard if I do try and keep up with joe maybe we can stop for lunch at the floating fire barge restaurant. Where was that again?

Thanks for the offer about coming down, I will be doing a little begging at work to try and get a few days off that week, unfortunately it's cleaning/maintanence time at the school and they don't like us simpletons to take off then.

Friday to Tues might work, back to work Wed.

I will let ya know.

Glen
