What time? I'm leaving tomorrow morning as well. Want to convoy?

Chad I'll stopping in Raleigh for a while to meet up with Weave. Also, I'm the guy in the right lane doing the speed limit. And I'm an old man with busy kidneys. I doubt you'll want to travel at our pace. :?

Hey! Had some cancellations due to the hurricane. If I could see a hands-up from folks planning to attend, that would be a big help planning food for Saturday night.

Friday night we are meeting at the Native Kitchen at 5:30 in Swannanoa for dinner. Great food and just a few miles from the campground. http://nativesocialpub.com/

Saturday ride about an hour or so each way, but you'll want to linger for a while at our destination (to be honest, you might never leave). :)

See you there!

We're coming. Van is all packed. But we're boarding the dog, so we can't leave until 8 am when that opens. See you guys at dinner time tomorrow.

Take a look at our cycle tent camper. We pulled it behind a Ural for some years. My wife refuses to tent camp, but she likes the tent camper! I've had it for sale since Spring. Still for sale. Converting my big van into a sleeper camper for our old age.

Almost talked the missus into joining us, but negotiations fell through. Perhaps she'll make it to the next C.R.A.P.
The dialog delayed me an hour, so it's now 9am and I'm leaving Virginia Beach. I plan to take a quick detour through Raleigh to visit TapeWorks Graphics. I've ordered motorcycle products from them before and am interested in seeing what they can do for the cT.
I should be at Swannanoa around 5pm or so.
Looking forward to this wet F.A.R.T.

Spent longer than I planned at TapeWorks. Too much neat stuff. In Greensboro making a pit stop now.
Should be at the KOA around 6pm.
