    Yes, the tone of the last few posts was reading a bit as liability-averse boilerplate mumbo jumbo.

    Ok, I'm in. Just reserved my room with Van. Looking forward to it and to meeting some of you shady characters in person.

    I've got a ride in late April with some fellow ATL riders (mostly BMW guys, but I try not to hold that against them) in the same area (staying at Little Switzerland Inn) so hopefully I'll know a few of the roads at least a little by the time this trip rolls around - never been east of Asheville on the BRP.

    Should be fun!!

    It does make for a nice gathering place. Van and Debbie don't own the Chateau. The owner has gone up on the price and I'm afraid to say it's getting to be a little rich for my blood. $755 is just too damn high!

    Not sure this is the place to ask this vs a pm, but what's the deal with food, drink, etc for the trip? As a newb here, I would appreciate a little input, although obviously it's not urgent as I have nearly half a year to get my $h1t together.

    I believe I read there was a restaurant nearby and each room has its own kitchenette. Is there a group pot to put money in for group meals, should l bring my own, etc? I'm likely trailering up so I can bring items that others might not be able to (case of beer, etc), although I don't plan to arrive until Friday afternoon.

    Happy to help however I can; don't necessarily want to be a freeloader but I'm pretty good at that as well....

    We have a "special" route map for the freeloaders.........it sends them to the land of 11 turns in 318 miles..........A.K.A.........Floriduh!

    As far as the food goes, Bowinkle and some others have been the ones that have brought most of the food for the get-togethers. We all kick in some money to cover the cost if you plan on partaking of the unbelievable food that he and other fix. I think I've already gained about 5 lbs just thinking about it...........Yummy!


    Id give myself a "like" for that post ^^^^^ if i could.

    Last year I brought the beer up for anyone that rode to the event and requested a specific brand and quantity.
    I'll be more than happy to do that again but please bring CASH to cover your order.
    The trailer people should bring their own beverage of choice.

    Speedy you're gonna be fine----there's a neat little bar/restaurant next to Alberts called JJs Grill On The Green but if history repeats itself Bowinkle has us covered so just throw some snacks and beverages in the truck and be prepared to ride, eat and laugh your ass off!
