Late Departure... NC in the A.M.

Leaving out of the Atlanta area at about 11:00 p.m. this evening headed for NC. I'll be camping in a motel somewhere between here and the Fontana Lake region. Nothing's set in stone but I intend to take 28 over to the dam and who knows what else from there. I'll be coming back to GA via the Cherohala Skwy.

If you see a couple 2-up on a silver Tiger, that's probably us!

Places to stay and eat

I like to stay in Bryson City, NC when I go to that area. There is a motel/campground there that is cheap and motorcycle friendly, The Ridge Top Motel and Campgrounds (US 74, exit 67, down the hill to the stop light, left up the hill by the school to the top). Tell them that Andy sent you and they may charge you more than usual . If you get to Bryson City, breakfast at the Everett Street Diner (downtown near the river) and supper at the BBQ Wagon (on US 19 headed to Cherokee - look for the sign with the big pig) is recommended.

I ended up staying in Murphy and then rode over to Fontana Dam. Ate lunch at Deal's Gap and then came via the Skyway and 68.

Good number of bikes out. Temps on the Skyway were easily 5 degrees cooler than Robbinsville and maybe 10 degrees cooler than Tellico. That's one hot bitch!
