    Let's start with the 'when' so I can tell if I can make it this year.

    As for the 'where', Maggie Valley works for me because my following trip takes me northwest.

    I am okay with any location.

    As far as the date goes, it has been the weekend following Mothers Day for as many years as I can remember but any weekend in May would work for me. I think we have avoided Memorial Day weekend so we can avoid the extra cars on the road.

    That works for me. Just hoping the ice in my driveway melts by then so I can get a bike out.

    Maggy Valley was nice, especially with having the museum in town in case we get rained out one of the days. That being said I did miss 16 and The Snake. I probably should have hit those on my way down or home... Or both... :-)

    Sounds good, do we want to keep things simple and stay at the Best Western again, or roll the dice and try someplace new?

    I hope to be able to make it. Got the house up for sale and a contract on a piece of dirt in Delaware with a house to be built. We shall see.
