Not really my place to say anything but......you guys know me
IMO those you you that “know” need to help those who don’t. The BRI was my suggestion at our first TSMR. Price and accessibly. I had no clue at the time how much it would become a major part of the event.....that just evolved.
If you want folks to show up......people who have never been in the area could use advise from those who have.
None of those places are that far away. The ride to Mountain City or Bristol could be a challenge for some after dark and a few beers.
I’d be shocked if there weren’t some B&Bs in Damascus.
Just saying.......think about how many hands were raised at the riders meeting when the question was asked “ Who’s here for the first time?”
