Did someone say mountain biking? I'd be up for that. I've never ridden in NC, but my wife says Pisgah and Tsali are both pretty neat.

I'm working on a few different driving routes. I'll have printed directions since Google makes it really hard to follow anything but what Gmaps thinks is the default best route.

Planning on having two longer routes plus a waterfall route.

I don't think anybody went to the Dragon last year, but if you want to go, be aware that it's a full-day trip from the lodge. Beautiful roads to get there and everything, but you're gonna have to leave before 10am and you won't be back til at least 6.

Ive never been to the area, but I noticed you say restaurants are a decent while away. (45mins or so) how about gas stations? I know I dont get the best mpg and with some "fun/spirited driving" on the driving routes I would most definitely need a fill up or two while up there..

Yeah, it's not too bad. If you run out of gas up here, you're a dumbass. Plus, all the gas stations are basically downhill from the lodge.

The closest station is in Balsam Grove, about 12 miles (35-45min rount trip) from the lodge. There's a cluster of stuff in Cullowhee/Tuckaseegee which is 15ish miles away and about an hour round trip.

We hit up the Dragon on the way to the meet last year and it was exhausting and honestly there are better roads closer to the cabin in my opinion..

I guess the Dragon is slightly safer for shens, since there are no houses or side streets along the length of it, but agreed. There are roads just as twisty and fun all over the place there.

I'm going to see if I can borrow my mother in law's Miata, since I slapped a timing belt on it and she doesn't drive it

Lol with local drop-ins, we're up to about 40. The Buchkas and Homer had expressed interest last year. Unsure if they're still planning on it or not.

Given the crowd that's shaping up this year, we might need to consider equipping with more ass smoking capacity than just Kenny's egg. Is anybody else willing to bring a smoker? If not, I know a couple guys around here with pull-behind rigs. I'm sure I could bribe one of them into coming to hang out with us.
