Our Ride to Maggie Valley to see a few buddies

As some of you might know we hang with a few other moto groups..
And Big Bike Riders is another group that we hang with...
We had a room booked at Smoky Falls Lodge in Maggie Valley, NC...
But the boy that watches our place called and said he now couldn't watch the farm for the week.Crap!!!
So we could NOT stay from Thursday –Sunday in Maggie Valley…
I called and had to cancel our room..
Friday morning I said to Don why don’t we leave here in the evening and camp some where
And meet up with the BBR.. (Big Bike Riders) So that is just what we did…
Got all the chores done loaded the bikes with camping gear and we lit out 6:30 pm.
BTW... BMWMOA was in town BMW'S all over the place ....
We got to this side of Asheville… Found a campground which is not easy in the dark.. LOL…
We went on 2 wild goose chases that gave US no campground…
And couldn't find any places to pitch a tent with out getting in to big trouble..



As we keep snaking around on this dirt road that is to lead us a campground…
They had little signs ~~Keep going~ You’re almost there~ A few more turns~ You have arrived!!
They kind of reminded me of the Burma shave. Signs…. LOL…
We found us a site and made camp…. Pitched the tent…



Don gathered some fire wood I set up the tent….



We got a fire going.. Put supper up …
Don had a nice steak I had Veggies… Put the coffee up….





Dang that was a good meal......




Hey look who came to visit us for Supper !!!



Ah life is good…. By now it’s really getting late..
We sat and had a few cups of coffee..



Put the Dragons to bed...



Don checks the bikes one more time... The smoke made the photo a little Spooky



Then we got ready for bed… No matter where I am, I always wash up and brush meh teeth....



It was a nice cool evening.. Kind of cool for JULY!!!



Don built a fire for the morning…



Did the morning routine, and we got ready for a day of ..



The winding dirt road leaving the campground



At Big Bike Riders Gathering… Well we thought we would get there around noon-ish… LOL Ya right we rolled in around 8:30 am…..
A few folks were stirring early…



We grabbed a bite to eat with a few BBR…



Then we took a ride with Tim & Sherry.. On the BRP…



Missed seeing our other buddies Smokin’Joe and his group.. As just hanging around till noon . Was just not going to work out.. We get a little antsy

Then we parted ways after dinner… We headed back to the farm Tim & Sherry headed back to Maggie Valley.
We even saw a Indigo Bunting ..



We had a very nice over night trip...
