I'm sure it's not Bob's card since we just starting maxing that out at the last FART smile
It may be mine or Dave's since we started this reservation...just remember, we know where to find you twice a year yes

Dave - Looking for pizza places in Sparta, NC - I found this review online:

"We were staying next door at the Alleghany Inn and needed a bite before everything shut down. We walked across the parking lot to JB's. It's a small little pizza, burger, and sub restaurant. They only take cash but there's an ATM inside. We found a table and were quickly greeted. They had a tv or two and the place was pretty busy (like the motel) due to a motorcycle touring group.

So Dave - it Looks like you will not be able to use my credit card. grin

Dave change me to Friday night. After looking at the distance, I am going to trailer my bike to Asheville late Thursday night. Stay the night in Asheville at the Asheville EAST KOA, leave the truck and trailer at the KOA and ride up Friday. Then on Sunday I will take a nice fun route back to Asheville East KOA, Load the bike back up and have a nice comfortable ride home in the truck on the highway :-)

I have no interest in riding a nice long fun route for 9-10 hours on Sunday, or a 7 hour highway ride on the bike. So trailering it is.

I understand Randy, I really do. But I just want to be sure that you've not come under any undue influence from a certain endo-dds type, causing you to push your arrival to Friday. shake

*** NOTICE *** PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT! ***

I have heard rumors from sources that suggest STARTers are being contacted from someone calling himself the "JAWBREAKER". Apparently, JAWBREAKER is offering a 2018 BMW GSA Triple Black with CLEAN TITLE in exchange for delaying one's arrival to START in Sparta until after the ALL YOU CAN EAT PIZZA SMORGASBORD.

Be on the lookout for this trickster this Halloween:

Dave no undue influence was used :-) Actually I am a little torn between two options

1. trailer to Asheville East KOA stay the night then a fun Blue Ridge Parkway run up to Alleghany Inn Friday morning
2. Trailer to Asheville East KOA unload the bikes and then a 3hr ride via I-40 to Alleghany Inn Thursday night, but then do the fun BRP run Sunday morning back to Asheville KOA

either way we would miss the Thursday dinner. Cannot leave Atlanta until around 4pm and a 6.5 hour drive/unload/ride puts us in around 10pm at earliest, maybe 11pm at latest

choices, choices.
