Post Return to Ironhorse... LTs in the Smokies Oct 28/29

Return to Ironhorse Lodge for LTs in the Smokies Oct.28/29 2005.
This is the place where the LT Spring Training Camp was held.

A ride to meet and eat for the weekend?no tech sessions or seminars, just riding and fellowship and of course eating?

October is peak season for the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and surrounding area with fall colors? I am posting this four months out to insure that we have time to make reservations?daylight savings time will change this weekend as well?the fall apples festivals are going full blast and it?s Halloween weekend.

Space at the lodge is limited, so reserve your space as soon as possible?

Cabin and Lodge rooms are limited, remember only 18 cabin and/or lodge rooms? there is plenty of camping space and several RV spaces with water and/or power.

Please contact Ironhorse to make all reservations.

Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge and Campground www.ironhorsenc.com
828 479 3864

Map to Ironhorse Lodge and Campground http://www.ironhorsenc.com/picts/detail_map.gif

What about Food Service?
Again check the IronHorse Lodge web site, they will prepare all the meals, breakfast to order. You will pay as you order, just like a restaurant. Please call for reservations even for camping, we need a good count for the planning of meals . http://www.ironhorsenc.com/dining.html

Does IronHorse sell or serve Beer?
NO, IronHorse will sell us bagged ice and rent us large coolers to save from having to bring those items. Beer and other like beverages are allowed at the facility, however they need to be purchased in the next county? Bryson City (20 minutes) Ingle Supermarket has the largest selection. There are a few C Stores nearby on Hwy 74 that sell beverages also.

Is there phone service or Internet service in the rooms?
No phone service in the cabins, cell phones may have a problem..mountain range, they do have wireless Internet service.

If I am camping, do I make a reservation?
Yes, this will enable us to plan better and will give the Iron Horse folks a heads up on the number to prepare food for meals. www.ironhorsenc.com

I have an LT, but can I bring my other bike?
SURE CAN,

Movies, Campfire, picking and grinning. The Lodge has a very large Movie screen, and they have movies or you can bring your favorite DVD movie and bring your musical instruments if you can for some picking and grinning.

Once you make your reservations please post to this page (reply).

This weekend had the most available rooms, therefore again we should have the place ?pretty much to ourselves? plus the RA Rally was scheduled for the second weekend in October. Saturday night we will have something special at the lodge, open for ideas?

OK, get the word out?

Remember at LT Spring Training Camp, I gave you Sunshine, Rain, Hail and a Snowfall? Well being late October in the mountains?I may can deliver it again.

Well, I've block out a couple days for this gathering -- fingers crossed!!
Here's to hoping nothing blows up at the office

Planning on camping -- any guidance on likely evening temps at this elevation at the end of Oct.?

Thumbs up Yall better have a good time!

Shelley and I would love to make this adventure but there is no way this time.
I want everyone to ride safe, give that cool "low biker sign to every bike, including scooters and Squids. (FYI) I use a 150cc scooter on a regular basis these days)

I also want to read several trip reports and expect many photos.

Spoke with Charlene this morning, she was at her home office and not in the lodge, so they should get back with you ASAP....

I don't have a list of the rented/non-rented rooms or bunk house...the 27 (thursday) shouldn't be problem at all, I do know that a few have requested the bunk house...I know of three in there thus far....for the 28/29 (fri/sat).

If you don't hear from them this weekend, get back with me.

Odd -- it should also have "Camp Mark Neblett," as I called a day or so ago and was told I was being put on the campsite list.

No matter -- I suspect campsites are about the only thing that's not in short supply

Nope, but that will be rectified shortly. We could be a long time getting out of Atlanta too.

Nicolas,

I'll see you there Thursday night. Looks like we will have the run of the place. I'll take a back road route and make a day of the trip up. Beats the super slab.

With the trees going into full paint mode, I'm not sure I want to be on the Gap that weekend with the possibility of all the leaf peepers out. But then again, I'll see what Connie, aka On-board Photographer, wants to do. I'd love to ride the Gap with her on the back, but then again the Cherahola might be the best thing.

We'll see everybody Satidee!!

On His Ride,
Steve

OK, I'm going to try to get out there Thursday afternoon. Do you still have that 76 GT750. As I recall the last of the big Suzuki 2 strokers. Came out with the GS line of 4 stroke engines in '77.

Yup I sure do. Rode it last Sunday. Can't believe I used to think it was a smooth bike. Compared to the LT it is a vibrating little toy that's not very stable. But I still think it is worth keeping stock. It gets an Antique plate next year.

Quite a screamer as I recall. Had a T250R, my first bike, I still hear that Ringgggggg in my ear. Then stepped up to the replacement for the GT the GS750E. Great bike. Took the whole market by surpise. Suzuki came out with a line of 4 strokers with roller bearings everywhere. The dealer encouraged me to ride it well into the redline all I wanted. Had a lot of good times on that bike. I saw one on Ebay recently and almost went for it.

Well, you gotta admit that Tennessee outplayed Alabama (as they did Florida) BUT due to their lack of depth they could not put either team away!

So, I will take my crying towel thank you very much!

Gambling is NOT your strong suit, so you would have lost that bet. I'll have to say though, it was like the days of old of good ol' hard fought football, complete with houndstooth hats! Somehow, they looked better than the 'Bear' did in his.

You got that right, "Bear" would be proud.... the houndstooth lives on...

Have a great weekend for your Ranger reunion and thanks again for being a good host and cook at the RA Rally.....

BTW, heard from Fletcher and Doug Hines are beginning their second week in Mexico, Wilma wanted to ride along, but they sent her on to Florida.....

Take care, Ride safe...tell Mel hi...and I have a story for her the next time I see you guys...

Is anybody leaving for Ironhorse as late as 4 or 5 Friday PM from the Chattanooga area?

That will be the earliest I could get away.

Hey Don, what time do they serve dinner on Friday?
