Doing the whole week Monday through Sunday. Rented a room for the week in Damascus.

Will have a canopy up at the campground and I’m bringing my BSA B44 Roadster and my modern little cruiser. One (or both during the week) can certainly be a loaner if need be.

I'll be bringing my gear up over the weekend.......and setting up the bb.com banner rack. I'll have a table with some TSMR history on it. I have pins to give away.......some older ones too.

Lannis……are you going to be using that big tent this time…..the one with the motorcycle slip???? I’d really like to see that.

Yes... it's the one I use if I'm staying more than one night. With 23 stakes to pound in, it's seldom worth the effort for one night.

It's just a common-or-garden Redverz, lots of them at rallies these days.....

I plan on being there for the week, also. In the camper, so all I need is an electrical outlet.

I reckon I'll bring the van this year, with a bike. Probably the Bonneville unless I buy something more interesting before then.
Likely show up Wednesday.

So far the other cabin is open. Just need to know what day you plan to arrive. Also are you willing to share as they sleep 3. As gordon stated my name is windy, bill was a forum name and the 50cal has nothing to do with comifornia so you can guess what it is for. laughing

Thanks Gordon........ and Windy. Looks like I will be wifeless for this event, we have a long trip planned beginning the following weekend so SWMBO needs time to prep for it.
Hoping to arrive Wednesday, may have to slip a day, leaving Sunday. Will be dossing in the trailer so won't need space in a cabin.

Lyle there are no real plans through the week but there will be ride’s happening.The ride is on saturday and kickstands up at roughly 9:30 . From the campground we go across 421 to 91. 91 to 58- rugby road- becomes 91- 88 to trade zig zag to old 421- 321 and lunch gas stop. From there we wind around to banner elk and the goat path back to the lunch stop. 321 back into tn and around watauga lake to 67 than back to the campground for a BB Q dinner. I will work on having handout directions.

Bill....aka no name man does a trailer set up. Tarp/pop up off it for shade and a little weather protection. Very comfortable looking set up IMO.....especially that time of year when it's not too hot.

That’s a good idea. My trailer doesn’t have a side door unfortunately, just French ones!

Tent, van camping is $10.00 a night with power is $20.00. There will be BB Q Saturday evening after ride but didn’t have that cost yet. It would be good if you make it we need new faces.
