    Your far from the being the old guy. I got you beat by five years and Mike beats you by 10. We all ride at our own pace.

    PS:Must be nice to retire at 55.

    OK I'm in. Just got my OK for the week off. Unfortunately as usual I have to be at work Sunday so that means I'll likely leave for home mid-day Friday. And yes DJ, I'm still the slow group lol. You wouldn't be the first to run 2 up.

    I was hoping to make it but it is pretty certain I'll be moving back to Alabama that week, if the pending sale of my Ohio house occurs as scheduled. Y'all have fun!

    Kotah is correct. The big rally is that same weekend. We need to decide quickly if we want to stay in Maggie Valley or stay somewhere else. I called Best Western in Maggie Valley and they still have availability so we should reserve a block of rooms as soon as possible if we want to stay there. I sent a PM to Stan.

    Hello All,

    Okay, I discussed the matter with Stan and we thought it might be best to stay in Maggie Valley at the Best Western since that is familiar with many of us and some people might already have reservations. I spoke with BW today and they still have plenty of rooms available for now. As in past years, Fri and Sat nights are a little more expensive than Wed and Thur nights but the rate overall is pretty good and better still if you have AAA or some other discount. I made a reservation for four nights (Wed thru Sat) in the back building and she said there are still several rooms available back there. If you want to be in the back with your own secluded parking lot just ask for a room in the back building when you make your reservation.

    So everyone get out there and make your reservation now while you still can! If you need to cancel or change your reservation you can do so up to 24 hours before with no penalty.

    See everyone in about a month.

    Rob

    Just checking to see if anyone is interested in splitting a room since my roomie CJ will not be able to make it. I have a room with two queen beds on the first floor in the back building. Four nights for $210 if anyone is interested.
