I'm in for a ride on Saturday.

Unfortunately I can't camp but I'm good for all day Sat.

I haven't been to Hot Springs NC since the spring.

I was thinking about doing an overnight this weekend maybe

So yeah, I'm open.

Sounds good to me. Sent you a PM. Hopefully the SV will get me there and back again.

Fyi

FYI- if you're planning on eating at Daggie's it closes at 4:30 on Saturday and is closed in Sunday. Enjoy the ride, I'll be working all day.

You certainly had some great weather Loren. I imagine it was actually pretty cold up there at elevation during the night and early mornings huh?

Yes it was great Chris, 50 to 60 degree range most of the time; it was very nice. Put the liner back in my jacket when i first reached BRP, took it out when i got back down about lake lure area.

Here's my route: Mostly road with gravel down Beauty Spot Gap road. Don't know what we're in store for once we take a turn onto Estep road up to Laurel Fork. Can't be worse the 4x4 road, right?

Couple of guys that work out at GE are going, Pete and Barry. They haven't ever been to an ADV dinner, but they're long time adventure riders. Barry just got back from Prudhoe Bay on his 800GS.

Some people don't like nicking up their nice streetbikes or taking them over washboards
