Thank you! I'll certainly take one..

Now for the picture...

It's common knowledge that the highest ranking person walks on the right. Generals, presidents, and so forth.

Low and behold!! What color is on the right in the group?!?!?!

That picture confirms Blue is the best!

Hello all! I cannot believe that I am saying this, but Karen and I will not be able to make the meet up this year - all is well, we just can't fit it in. Will be on the watch for 2022...

Sorry to hear you won't be coming along this year. Can you tell us if this opens a motel room?

Folks, please take a look at the video on the Facebook page linked below. We stayed here one time and it will probably be a very long time before we can do that again. They were hit pretty hard by the Pigeon river and absolutely deserve our thoughts and prayers - as does everyone affected by that damn storm.

Hello All,

Sorry for not posting these past few weeks. School started... and that takes a great deal of extra time and energy.

Barry, thanks for sharing the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground (BRMC) news. Yes, they sustained signifiant damage from the flash flood caused by the Tropical Storm. When I last spoke to Jay (the owner and operator) 15 cabins, the bridge, a 30' RV, and the 'fish house' by the old trout pond are gone. When I say gone, they are no longer on the property--they were washed away completely. The remaining structures (lodge, 3 cabins, pavilion, bathhouse) all sustained damage. Good news, they are already cleaning up the place and are rebuilding! The Motocamping community is pitching in! Please visit the Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground Facebook page to keep up with their news.

Wow, we are almost there. I am looking forward to seeing everyone soon. Some updates from my end.
1. Patches are in. We ordered 25. One is mine, so that leaves 24.
2. My wife is finally coming! She was able to make the arrangements. This will be a first for us!
3. I will arrive Thursday evening. I have to work Thursday until 3:30. We will leave as soon as we can, we may arrive very late (9pm). I will trailer my bike this year. Keep an eye out for BIG RED (Ford F150)!

More to come.... gotta run to work.

As things have developed, it is good I had to bow out of this get-together. Although the land border is open now for vaccinated U.S. citizens to come to Canada, the American government has not yet reciprocated, and the border remains closed to us. As the late Hunter S. Thompson once wrote, we live in “strange and troubled times.”
Cheers,
Bruce

My wife Jamie will also be traveling with me. You can add her to our list!

I think you still have my cell phone number. Give me a call.

Peace,

Hello all!

I am excited to see everyone gearing up for the fun! About a week ago Jörg and I rode up to Fancy Gap and met the folks at Fancy Gap Cabins and Campground. Loved the area!

While I was there I asked about reservations for our group. They said there was still room for more. Apparently, there still is one cabin and four tent campsites on hold under my name (Chris Hansen) but have not been reserved with a deposit. With that said, if you are considering attending there seems to be some options available. Keep in mind that cabins do not have their own bathrooms, they share a bath house. Also, I learned that the cabins come with linens for the beds, but not towels. They do rent towels if you do not want to bring your own.

We can have up to two tents per camp site. So, if you want to tent camp you can either get your own site or pair up!

Looking forward to seeing you all in the fall!

Peace,
Chris Hansen
When you visited Fancy Gap did you look at the road that runs from the office to the motel. When I was there a couple years ago it was covered with deep, loose gravel. It was a little tricky riding over there.
