2019 Smokey Mountain Reunion??

Any interest in returning to the IH this Fall? I tried to see if there was a thread already started but couldn’t find one.

I’ve got it in my head to try and take my S1000R into the twisties. Of course, with the ride from NY, it will be in the bed of my truck most of the way. Might even bring my camper with me to really make it interesting.

Thoughts?

Yeah we are doing it again this year. The new owners don't want to list events as it may deter potential guests if they think a big group is there. Oct 10,11,12 this year.

Oct 10,11,12? Starts on a Thursday?

It's not 11,12,13?

Just need to be sure for planning. My SO works 7 on 7 off and it's difficult to swap.

Yep, Thur - Sat. Sun is a pack up and go home day. Some like me arrive on Wednesday and get settled in for 3 days of riding.

Well I just secured a deluxe private room for me and my deluxe sweetheart!
So it looks like I'll be meeting some of you ancient LT guys.. unless of course your children check you in to the nursing home before October!

Wait until you see the Conestoga wagons he bought, calls it "glamping" everything (a/c, fridge, big bed) but running water (have to use the bath house). We stopped in there Tuesday while we were staying at Tapoco for a few days.

Re: 2019 Smokey Mountain Reunion??

The Conestoga wagons John has mentioned are actually pretty cool. They have everything but bathroom facility’s. Saw 4 going in to old camping areas.







The new owners are also installing a gas station on site.

Best,

Doc

Gas station, not a bad idea.
