Uh, not really. I don't think it's terribly far, though.

It appears that the marina is about 2 miles from the hotel.

It is close enough, Fontana is a great lake to go out on. There is very little traffic or development along the lake. Most of the shoreline is Smokey MT National Park. I figure this will give my wife something different for a day.

Sounds like a good plan. It'll also be one less day that you sneak up behind folks with your lights a-flashin'!

Bike serviced and test ridden. Sena Bluetooth headsets paired, GPS loaded with routes for the UnRally and to and from.
Time to start packing. Departure on Friday at the crack of dawn, or maybe before. It will be a interesting trip.
See all at the Un. wave

Time to get some TARS on my bike. I have to find a rear tire that can make 5K dopeslap

Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting, WOW, What a ride!

As Paul used to suggest ... decrease the use of the right hand to get more life out of the rear tire. Or not!

There is a term I haven't heard in a long time.

My short timers calendar ran out in 1998


With a handle like LtlJohn, every calendar is a short timers calendar...
