STC Bound- 4/13

Anyone else headed to the STC in North Carolina?

I'm currently planning on leaving 4/13 and riding the Skyline Drive through the Blueridge Pkwy and arriving at the IronHorse on 4/15.

Anyone else from the North East heading south for Spring Break?

Re: STC Bound- 4/13

Hey Rob

My chances of making it are getting slimmer by the day, but I still hold out hope for a last minute reprive?

Keep an eye out for your friend BAMBI!

Have fun

Re: STC Bound- 4/13

First the deer and then the alarm. Man, the abuse never ends!

Sorry you guys can't get away. After the month I had at work, I'm really can't wait. I'm even thinking about setting up my tent outside today and the practice packing up the LT for the ride south!

Sad, I know.

Re: STC Bound- 4/13

Rob, I'm not a Nor'easterner so our paths won't cross on the way to STC, but I've been wondering about FredR from Connecticut. You may recall Fred had a little incident on the Cherohala Skyway last year at this time.

Fred, are you out there? Are you on 2 wheels again?

Re: STC Bound- 4/13

I know he had a bunch of stuff of his LT for sale not too long ago. I sent him a PM to see how he was doing but I don't remember getting a response.

I hope he's doing well.

Re: STC Bound- 4/13

Hi Howard and Rob.
Yes good ole FredR is well and back on 2wheels once more. I did downsize to a 05 GS and am in the process of acquainting myself to it. The mud is finally out of my driveway and the roads are once again almost sand free.
I wont be able to make the spring fling in NC but am hopeful I can make the fall gathering.

Re: STC Bound- 4/13

I'm not going to make it to STC this year, I have some family issues that need attending so will be in Jacksonville, Fla instead. I am thinking about the MOA International in July however - maybe we could get a ride organized for that?

Fred, it's good to hear you're "alive" and doing well. Congratulations on the GS. Let us know how you like it. I hope we can meet up again some time.

I do, indeed. It was just last April!

Here's hoping we can create some new memories this year, although Messy13 won't be along for the ride.

Re: STC Bound- 4/13

It's raining something awful here in NY and here I am packing up the LT excited like a little boy on Xmas Eve. I plan on leaving on Monday at 4:30 am. My day one goal is to make the Big Meadows Campground on Skyline Drive in the beautiful Shenandoahs.

Day Two- depending on the weather - should have me pulling into either the Linville Falls Campgrounds on the Blue Ridge or the a motel somewhere near Roanoke. I should the be able to pull into the Iron Horse some time before dinner on Wednesday.

NICE!!!!!!

Monday can't come soon enough.

I hear you Rob, I can't wait either. Just be aware Ironhorse usually does not do dinner on Wednesday. There are several restaurants in Robbinsville that are good and it is just a short hop away.

Re: STC Bound- 4/13

Howard, Rob,
My son lives in Robbinsville and has taken me to a Mexican place right on Hwy 129. Take 143 into town. Turn right on 129 and it's not too far up on the left. Couldn't tell you the name of the place. Seems like there was an old gas station right beside it. We've eaten there a couple times. Must have been OK, 'cause I didn't get the "revenge"!

I envy you guys getting there on Wed. I'm saving vacation days for CCR, so I won't arrive till early Sat. morning. Hope ya'll have a good trip down. See you there.

It WILL be kind of quite!

Just had a "financial" setback, will be ok though, but already had two bike trips planned this year and just had to cut back somewhere. I hate to miss STC as I enjoy ALL of the fine folks (and the food)!

Have a safe trip to Irohhorse and if Al, especially Lynn, get's to snoring too loud, you can always move to the other side of the creek
