Ron - I've been retired for over ten years. You OBVIOUSLY have better credit than me.  ;)

Ted, you were in the NAVY. If it doesn't float you can' sleep in it. Right?  :)

Best job I've EVER had. Only two problems: Half the money; twice the spouse.

NO! Honey, I didn't write that! RON did! I was "quoting" him. It was RON! Our new (interim) AD.

WHEW!  Sucks to be you Ron.  ;)

In the past tent camping doesnt need reservations  Reservations for rooms and cabins are needed

Correct about no reservation for tent camping and when we had 140 people for the 20th RWTW there was still a lot of tent space available, so don't worry about that.

Good to know, thanks. I may even bring a tent.

I miss this one every year because we do a Model "T" Ford Rally (the Texas "T" Party) at about this time.
This year, I'm gonna try to make it. But, I dunno about the tent thing...  :??:
Are there any Motel's nearby? Wife won't stay in a tent!

Ride safe, Ted

You can go on TWOS website and make a reservation for a bunkhouse or see if there is one open for that weekend.  If no try High Valley just down Hwy 180.  No motels within 12 miles of TWoS

We won't know if we can make it until just before the event, so I know the bunkhouse's will be full.
If wife doesn't come, I could camp.
If she does, we'll stay in the Motel (@12 miles).
  We've stayed there before.
Was hoping something was closer.

Part of the beauty of RWTW is that NOTHING much is close to it. On the  other hand, if you call the Fannin county chamber of commerce in Blue Ridge or the Union County chamber of commerce in Blairsville, there ARE quite a few cabins for rent in the area and you might snag one of those.

If one is available go ahead and book it.  I think it is 48 hour notice to cancel and post here that one came available and let Mary know another COGger will call and take the room.   :great:

No, that wouldn't be right, because it's doubtful I'll be able to be there.
I'd  prefer to let someone have the room that knows they can go.
 (makes their planning easier)

If I get to come, I'll (see if the wife wants to go) and adjust my plans as needed.

Ride safe, Ted

PS: My only Camper is a 20" enclosed Model "T" hauler.
      A motel is far cheaper than towing that to The Wolf..

I just looked and nothing left but camping space, unless someone cancels.  They will start a waiting list if you are needing a covered space only

Ted - the store across the street has bunk rooms that are often used by hikers stopping through this area. I think it's called the Wolf Pen Gap Store. Maybe give them a call?

If their accomodations aren't great you could always shower and etc at TWO. I have no idea what it's like in there. Hope it's not too bad lol

Will be a fun rally I'm looking forward to it. If you guys want to send me pictures by email after this year's rally I'll make a video for me. Best part is your pictures will be in the video
