I'm good to go any weekend...Jeff kindly 'volunteered' to help out with the Florida meet in my absence! Unfortunately, Oct. 12th isn't available for our event.

Oct. 6th is a 'maybe', so far we have plans to go to the Steelers/Ravens game in Pgh.

The third weekend sounds good to us. I think we will have some color change by then.

Here is a projected road trip.

Input anybody?

At this point, I am looking at the third weekend in October. Friday arrive, Saturday drive and Sunday head home. Temperature should be perfect, and the likelihood of rain is low.

I would like some commitments of people that want to go so I can start making arrangements for a hotel if people want it. The one I stayed at last year is very reasonable and has a breakfast buffet included. I posted the name earlier in this thread.
Looks like a good route. I havenít been to that part before.

If we have enough interest, should we start a new thread and have it be a sticky? We could post the route, hotel info, list of those going, etc...

See what the boss man thinks. Whatever works for you guys works for me! Although this thread pretty much has all the information in it already. Just not laid out too well.

One of the reasons I picked the third weekend. The hotel I stayed at last time is good because you can keep an eye on the cars and while it is low-key, management is on site. Breakfast wasnít too bad. It also is very close to the route we want to take and other restaurants or evening entertainment. Not five star but certainly acceptable. OK we have three going. Do I hear four? How about it @Idiot101? @Vicky?

I voted for the 19th, but it really could change for me.

We are definitely going to be in TN, just not sure of the dates yet.

the hotel sounds/looks great!

i'll be watching the thread.

You might want to make reservations yourself. I will let them know that people from the SLK group will be calling and I will see if I can get a better price.

Iíve got some tentative commitments from an additional four cars. I contacted the hotel, they will give us a discount if we get enough people. I have already placed my reservation for the third weekend of October. It seems there is a distinct possibility that if we get enough people we can fill this hotel. If you contact them for reservations, make sure you let the hotel know know that you are with the SLK group.

Looks like more people want to go. We need to start making reservations so that the hotel is not full when you do try to make reservations. Post here please when you make your reservations.

Living not quite 100 miles from the Dragon we ride there at least a couple times a month law-enforcement really isnít an issue but we are on sports bikes never had our little car up there but there are several routes up that way that would make a great place to cruise with the SLKís. Name the date and location and Iíll do my best to get there.
