Glad to see fellow COG members from other areas attending. Meeting new riders is the best of COG.

There are grills everywhere and Ty Pigott is bringing a two burner camp stove. The plan will be to have a hot dog & hamburger night Friday. This will be a low cost ( maybe a couple of bucks each ) supper for everyone arriving Friday sometime. Beans would be a good fit with this also. All meals are available onsite, but I know we all like to save money when we can. If anyone has another idea for extra meals during the rally, please bring it up here.          Al

I’m wondering if we could cook up some interest in a hot sauce ‘taste-off’ by asking folks to bring their favorite/hottest sauce and letting others try them out on their beans to see which is the “best”.  The downside is the potential for free musical accompaniment around the campfire….

Nice idea Tom. I propose we also have a Bourbon taste test and a cigar comparison also. Seriously, I have the hottest stuff made by a local/loco Mexican friend. I can run a model airplane off the stuff.        Al

FYI.  I have a little more info for those looking for a cabin.  The Standard Cabin is regulary $50/night and we are getting them for $40/night for the entire cabin(sleeps 4).  The  Lake front cabins are $5 more(sleeps 4).  There is also a 2 bedroom cabin that sleeps 8 for $65 a night.  None of these comes with linens and/or a TV. 

The Deluxe cabins(sleeps 4) are $55 discounted rate and include linens and a TV. Then there is a Premium cabin that sleeps 6 for $120 and a lodge that sleeps 14 for $250 a night.  I dont know the discount rate for the previous 2.
 All cabins include a bathroom/shower and a small kitchen area.

There is more info and photos at http://www.campntwp.com/rates.htm

I just reserved a cabin & they do come with linens, I specifically asked. But they encourage you to bring extra towels. They will not provide them if you need them for whatever reason.

Cliff & everyone else coming, don't forget to register for this event, and please take the time to make sure you get the BBQ option included. I don't really want to have to handle money, and since this is a pre registered event, that shouldn't happen. There's already one rider that didn't get the BBQ paid online, we'll work through that ok, as long as there isn't a flood of this happening. Thanks for your understanding........Al

Ok, I'm in. Signed up and have a cabin.

Didn't we all vote at RWTW to see who was providing the keg for the Fall Rally, I believe Tom won by an over whelming margin.  :beerchug:

Excuze me, but I thought you and Lane were serving as apprentices at the Spring Rally in order to step up and assume the full roles and responsibilities that come with the title of Kegmeister...at least that's why I promoted it so heavily in the write-up  :) :great: :great: :great:

Knew about the Jack Daniel distillery location in Lynchburg, but had forgotten/did not realize George Dickel was in the area as well.  How's about a loop ride to visit both locations while at the Fall Rally?

https://maps.google.com/maps/ms?msa=0&msid=214814616566555658626.0004c7b3724da16f3a672

Full disclaimer: I know nothing about the roads and its been years since my last visit to Lynchburg. My last visit was on a weekender with my wife after leaving our oldest with the grandparents. Our youngest son is now 19 years old...   :))

Tom, your google map did not come up. I'd be interested in this loop. Hohenwald to

George A. Dickel & Co., 1950 Cascade Hollow Road Tullahoma, TN 37380‎
to
Jack Daniel Distillery, 280 Lynchburg Highway Lynchburg, TN 37352‎
to
Prichard's Distillery Inc, 11 Kelso-Smithland Rd Kelso, TN 37348‎
to
Hohenwald

is about 205 miles and about 5 hours, according to google map. My cousin lives near Henry Horton SP, I'll give him a shout to see what roads he would recommend. He has a connie and would probably lead us around if he isn't working. Let  me know what you all think.

Oops, my bad. Forgot to mention the Map reference needs a firm commitment from you to buy the keg first before unlocking the link   ;)

Am open to the suggested stops.  Probably need to think about doing the trip on Friday, as the hosts have an open house and other events planned for Saturday. Oh, and the JD stop is in a dry county, so no partaking of the fruits of their labors while on-site. Don't know about the other sites mentioned.  And, if you have any sinus issues, a deep whiff of the bubbling vat will cure what ails ye -  DAMHIK

With a slightly different location for Jack Daniels I get a Google map showing 193 miles and 4.5 hours travel time. Eminently do-able.

Having done the whole Bourbon tour, if I had to pick one now, it would be the Jack Daniels tour. Thought it was the best and had the most samples to try out.      Al

Both the George Dickel and Jack Daniels distilleries are in dry counties = no tasting room(s). You can, however, purchase a "commenerative" bottle (which just happens to be full of product) at both locations.  :great:

Thanks for straightening that out for me Jim. Must have been sleeping in class again. The tour was great though. After having to pace ourselves in the other six distilleries to get to the next tour, I found myself thinking it would have been better to have done it all with another day involved.       Al

From conversation with a lot of riders, many are thinking or on the fence with this ride. Please consider registration now, and if things don't work out for whatever reason, you can always cancel and get a refund. We'd like to know how many will be there for the BBQ. You'll feel bad missing this event.    Al

The middle Tennessee area is a fun one to ride. Rolling hills and rural landscapes are among my favorites. Not the most twisty routes, but not arrow straight, either!

Kurt

Got this from Jack McVickers via email re Saturday:
the local kawasaki shop is going to have an open house for us on saturday and that night at the bbq (hosted nearby) a friend of mine who is a semi-professional muscian and his band will be playing for our group.he does a john denver tribute that is great, lots of old time rock and roll songs.
HTH. Till then

PS remember to save room on your bike to bring the keg...

Tom,

Thanks for the update. Regarding the keg, Lane and I cannot be trusted with the huge responsibility of being the kegmeister. We will continue to require supervision and guidance and as such cannot possibly provide the keg, so it falls back to the vote we took electing you to provide the keg. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to providing what ever assistance we can in emptying the keg.  :beerchug:
