The worldwide RC meet thread has me thinking about figuring out a weekend Eastern US meet.
I know a few members already live in this area but for those of us that don't, logistically, I feel that it would be the simplest if everyone involved would book their own lodging if needed. Unless someone has a platinum card who wants to orchestrate and take on the risk of booking multiple rooms at one place.
, just east of Asheville, NC has a collection of different hotels, from a Motel 6 to the Biltmore Days Inn East, restaurants, gas stations, near to one of the entrances of the Blue Ridge Parkway and a lot of other great roads.
Iím going to use the intersection of Tunnel Rd/NC Hwy 70 and Porters Cove Rd as home base.
Saturday morning meet for breakfast at either the local IHOP (directions)
After breakfast head out on the first part of the route Leg 1
Stopping for a stretch in Hot Springs, then continuing on to our refuel point Leg 2
At the end of Leg 2 we will be stopping and a BP/McDonald's for gas/snacks. At this point we will have covered about 108 miles, so I know we all will need to refuel. Leg 3
will take us to another spot to stop and stretch. After that the ride will conclude back at the home base area.Leg 4
After the ride there will be time for a shower, change, refuel, etc. before dinner drinks and more shit talking
at Longhorn Steakhouse (directions)
Sunday morning is going to be a shorter ride to accommodate those who have traveled and need time to get home. This ride will be basically up the Blue Ridge Parkway and back. There are many areas to stop and stretch along this route, the stops indicated on the maps are just the ones I've stopped at before.
Who would be willing to make the trip? What weekend could you do it?
Lets make this happen!
