Talking Asheville, NC Blue Ridge Parkway Ride

Anyone want to ride the Blue Ridge Parkway sunday, ( 8/13/06 )this weekend ????
It'd be a good day to meet and get to know riders in or near this area.
Please respond and I'll have a meeting point, maybe the Moose cafe, Waffle House.....
Thanks

I don't know where the Moose Cafe or Waffle House is, but which way you thinking of heading on the parkway out of Asheville? And what times?

If going north past Mt Mitchell etc - We might be able to meet up. We are just south east of the Linville entrance to the parkway.
Got some interior painting to do, but could schedule around that to test my proposed new power hookup for my portable GPS.

Let me know.

Moose Cafe is north of the parkway around 10 miles, just continue forward from I-26 once you exit,( right or left depending on which exit ) and it's before the farmers market. The travel will depend on riders, weather, mood, time ect..........
Or the ride could go across Roan Mtn. from the Tenn side back to NC.

Don't see a lot of responses, and to Asheville early in the AM won't work for me. Have a nice day and a good ride.

Sounds good. As it was. We finished our painting chores and headed over to Roan Mountain in Tennessee. First time up that way. Great ride.
