Who has vacation plans?

I just thought it would be fun to hear what others are doing for the summer. I have a trip planned to return to Cherokee, NC. in Sept. Plan is to ride the Skyline Drive and then the Blue Ridge all the way to Cherokee. Three day down and then another 4 riding in the curvy roads and mountains. I am sure we will do Deals Gap at least one time to add to the 100 or so we have already done on that 11 miles. NC has so much to offer for great rides. I never get tired of going there.

What are your plans?

Coming to Pa in Sept. The Indian club I belong to put together a ride to Gettysburg with a guide. Cool thing is the guide rides too.

Really looking forward to it.

Re: Who has vacation plans?

On Sunday Aug 2nd, I am headed north to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island for 8 days. I am riding with KMC1. We are taking our GS's. I can not wait to get to Cape Breton, NS. I am really looking forward to this trip.

No real planned route just going to play it loose.

Re: Who has vacation plans?

Just a leisurely trip back to NE in mid-September where I grew up to visit some aging relatives. I'll also do the Cape to visit "my special summer" in Wellfleet.

Re: Who has vacation plans?

Leaving next week for 13 days, tent camping my way across New England. I found two BMW rallies that dovetail into my trip perfectly. Damn Yankees rally in Heath, Mass and the UNrally in Lancaster, NH. The fine folks at the UN have pulled some strings and got us a ride up to the top of Mt. Washington for the sunrise. 30 bikes or so, very exclusive. From thereup to the coast of Maine to see my folks and NYC to see my sister.

First long trip on my LT, and first long trip for me. I'm hoping for good weather and no mechanical issues!

Re: Who has vacation plans?

My vacation plans are to to go CCR. I will be leaving on the 28th of Aug, heading to Punxsutawney to see Phil, then up through Michigan to ride accross the Macinac bridge. From there to the Mississippi headwaters in Minnesota, then south to Wabasha MN to get a pic of the bench with Walter Mathau and Jack Lemmon painted on it. From there to Rapid City. After CCR, head southwest to the four corners, then back up through Colorado to take rt 50 all the way back to the east coast. Other than at CCR, I will be camping the whole way.

Re: Who has vacation plans?

Just got back from my vacation - to Alaska and back - a total of 11,500 miles. Did it with my close friend and riding partner who picked up an '09 LT just for this trip. We detailed the entire trip in a blog (link in my signature) if anyone is interested. If you have 4 weeks to spend someday, I'd very highly recommend doing something like this - what an experience!.
