We have been talking about this for a while, and here is the plan for a Fall Ride & Drive adventure to the Smokey Mountains. Anyone that would like to enjoy a weekend of motorcycles or a ride the mountains is welcome to come. At this time we know of at least 5 motorcycles, and an assortment of cars that will ride the Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, http://www.tailofthedragon.com/ The Tail of the Dragon has 318 curves in 11 miles, and is America's number one motorcycle and sports car road. The nearby Cherohala Skyway is quickly becoming number two with its remote 60 miles of scenic mountain highway. The area also has other roads less traveled, but just as exciting.
We are planning to stay Friday and Saturday night at Fontana Village Resort. Located near Fontana Lake & Dam the Village has a wide range of accommodations, including rooms in The Lodge, suites, cabins, etc. To make your reservations, go to: http://www.fontanavillage.com/ and you can make them on-line or by calling Fontana Village at 800-849-2258.
We are planning to stay in The Lodge where rooms are $59 to $89 per night. When you make your reservations if you ask for a room close to Dennis Perry or Jeff Cargile, they will try to keep our group together.
In addition, we thought it would be nice to have a group dinner Saturday night. If you plan to go and would like to participate in the dinner, please let either Dennis or Jeff know and we will make some arrangements.
