At the behest of my SC friend, I'm planning a meet and greet in the Maggie Valley/Waynesville area of North Carolina sometime in the early summer centered around a visit to the Wheels Through Time museum. Here's the deal:

I'm not into organized rallies and big crowds. I'm more of a ride, eat and drop in kind of guy. So I will make motel reservations and show up since it's a significant ride for me just to get there.

EDIT: June 11-13, 2021. I made my reservations at the Oak Park Inn Waynesville, NC.

The only other criteria right now is meet at Wheels Through Time on a Saturday around 10am.

I am interested. The weekend of June 18th is father's day weekend so may or may not work for some. I am just as good with camping or dive motel.

It's on my bucket list, so I'm interested. It's a 7+ hour ride for me, according to mapquest, which usually ends up 9+ hours, but what the hey, from what I've heard, it's worth it.

Sounds great to me. It’s on my calendar. I’m from Greensboro, NC so not too far. I’m happy to stay anywhere that has a mattress and walk to food.

Ooh, I didnt realize that weekend is Father's Day. But like I implied, keep the dates open. I have no doubt it'll probably change.

I know it's not all about me, but I'm going to be leaving Bardstown, Kentucky, on June 11th and had seriously considered going to Maggie Valley from there. If it happened to be that weekend, I'm in.

I am interested pending getting off of work and having the days available. There are some great roads to ride in that area. Would be great to see you and everyone after all this time.

Biden wants to put travel restrictions on the Great State of Florida, my home state. Chances are he'll have border troops on the FL/GA line. No NC riding for me.

Border check points ? Razor wire ? Shock troops ? :surprise:

Not going to happen . I'll bet my 401K on it .

That anyone would even consider it is beyond ridiculous .

And when anyone uses the phrase "based in science " now-a-days ..... run for the hills .

The CDC has lost my respect . Bunch of govt. hand-wringing weenies .

I think the weekend before or after Father’s Day weekend would work better for most people. The later in June it gets the more cagers are traveling. Just my 2 cents worth.

I would agree with that, plus the later it gets the hotter it will be for anyone traveling from the Texas area; I would love to go to this, but it will depend on a few things (especially work).

Yeah, my bad not paying attention to the weekend. No doubt the date will be moved a little. Had my second round job interview this morning. I should hear something in a week or so.
