Just got information from Ironhorse:

Now have TWO private rooms and ONE semi private cabin available...

Be certain to tell them under the Don Norwood block of rooms.... I can hold these til Wednesday, then will have to let them go.....

Plenty of camping, several RV spots available.

I was up on the Cherohala Skyway Friday, we should be hitting the very PEAK of fall colors this weekend...

Hope to see you there!
:)

Fortunately, or unfortunately, I'll be down at Hurlburt Field, FL (Ft Walton Beach) for an Army Ranger reunion...no fall/winter weather gear for me! :) Well, maybe a little 'til I get down around Montgomery somewhere. :( Then I get to start peeling it off right about there...whoo-hoo!! Ya'll take care of Skippy at Ironhorse now, ya heah?...nah, nevermind...I forgot that he told me was going to the Ranger shindig instead...God help us! :D

With the cold snap, the peak on the colors will be just right...if the wind doesn't blow them off first ;)

I've got to stop reading this thread. It makes me jealous. Instead of pack'n the bike for a trip to the mountains I'm gona pile in the cage in a few minutes and head down to Kissimmee to pick up the grandkids so their Momma can get to the hospital and deliver yet another little bundle of joy! Hey, wait a minute. Hav'n another grandkid to spoil might even be better than a trip to the mountains. Just kidding of course. We're pretty excited about this new one joining the family. Just wish the kids would plan a little better so we could do both! :~)

Lynn, going to miss you guys, I am headed over today setup the toy hauler spend the night, ride back to Chattanooga Thursday for an appointment and then back on Friday with a friend from Alabama coming over to join us. That will be fun, over the Skyway two times...

Take care and keep us posted on the new "bundle of joy", the baby.....and your new 05....

Prepare for cold wx

Be prepared to dress warm! Snow and ice has already (temporarily) closed sections of the Blue Ridge Pkwy. My guess is that around 10 am, you could see temps in the high 30s F at the higher altitudes on the Cherohala. Think Gerbings!

Watch out on the Skyway on some of them turns with the ice and snow...there's at least one I know of that stays in the shade most of the day and the ice just won't go away. And no, I'm not telling how I know. :(

If you haven't seen the post about this on the main forum, go to www.killboy.com and check out the poor cornering technique by the LT. This guy is cruising for a bruising.:eek: Holy cow...talk about not staying in your lane!!

Hey Al, are we going to stand for the comments from Don? I may have to slip him a "mickey" or something in his iced tea this weekend! LOL

Don, that's right, kick us when were down!

Hey Britt and Al and group, well up at Ironhorse tonight, you know got to make sure everything safe and stuff... going to be good weekend, about 10 folks here tonight, but they are ready for us this weekend..

Hey Britt, I couldn't figure out if that was a warning of falling helmets or what, being on a weather outlook for six days.... anyway folks do be careful...

BTW, I logged on here at Ironhorse, why is my name so large...not that way on my computer, supposed to be script and lot smaller... oh well, getting used to this New and Improved site...

See you this weekend...

Don (smaller print)

I was freezing up until about Watts Bar Dam then it warmed up. Dragon is fine, leaves are showing but not peak yet. It's nice at the lodge. You all are missing beef stew tonite Yum!! Have a safe drive up - saw quite a few horned rats.
