    I now understand the confusion. Franklin is in North Carolina not South. If I have it correct the number is 828-369-0600.

    Life Happens .... been busy with a lot of things.

    Yes, this is still scheduled to take place. At this moment, it will be just a simple gathering of friends.
    It will not be like years past. We will orchestrate a few rides and find restaurants along the way for the attendees.

    At night when we return from our rides we can eat nearby and just relax back at the hotel.

    unfortunately I don't have time to hunt for door prizes from vendors.

    I have a few leftover prizes from years past that I will bring for the gathering.

    I will touch base with the Hotel in the next few days.

    I'll be there to enjoy the rides and company. I'm keeping it simple this year.

    I strongly recommend the following map for that area if you haven't got one yet:

    I have not tried the Butler Maps but they look good. Instead I have always used https://americaridesmaps.com/ . A single map is about the same price but you can get the full eight map set for some really good detail for the whole Smokies area. I understand He is researching the Virginia area and they will be out some time in the future. That area around Franklin is really good for motorcycles with so many roads and little traffic. Most of the cars like the North side of the mountain where Dolly Wood etc is found.
