Deals Gap, Tail of the Dragon

Anyone have any intrest in doing a Deals gap/Tail of the Dragon area ride this year? I have reservations at The Pumpkni center that I can use till mid June from last year.. Might be fun to get a few of us together to ride and hang out for a few days. Its a ton of fun with alot of nice roads. And unlike previous years they banned semi's from both ends of 121 last year....

Iíll be there from May 1st to the 12th. Was there last year at the same time, saw a couple of RCís then, but always going the opposite direction, never hooked up.

The dragon is nice but usually crowded. If you get a chance hit the Cherohala Skyway as mentioned or Hellbender (NC-28). I enjoyed the latter two much more than the dragon.
