Not riding but trailering. No choice because we're camping. I cannot bring the stuff I need for tent camping on the bike. I'm old, I need my comfort. That takes space. Plus, I have enough tires left for riding up there, but not up and back. If it were a hotel with stores nearby, different story. I know, there's a Walmart up the road near Blairsville but it is what it is. Edit: Tuesday, by the way. Save us some electric camp sites.

I am 68, and the thought of trailering is starting to look like the way to go for me too  Nothing wrong at all with doing that, look forward to seeing you at the wolf

  ;) How ever your going, keep in mind the wild life in the area.  Whether it be big or small it could have a BIG IMPACT on your ride. :'(  Deer are most active all night and early morning and early evening hours.        Ride SAFE!        Alan in S. Fl   :motonoises: :motonoises:

Rob,
My plan is to head out from work somewhere around 11:30 AM or so, from just West of Jax.

I think Doug is leaving later, Roman is spending the night Sunday and heading out Monday.

I'm recovering from cataract surgery and my Dr. does not recommend me driving the bike at this time. So I won't be coming so neither will my apple pie.    :'(   Maybe Mr T or Marty will share. Have a GREAT TIME.   :)      Ride SAFE and watch out for each other.        :motonoises:    Alan in S. Fl    :beerchug:

So....who is still in? I will know if I'm going tomorrow afternoon. Irma really is screwing with my plans.
I could go and be out of harms way the whole trip, but leaving the wife and son behind.
We will keep looking at the forecast.
Last resort would be leaving on thursday in my Honda Element.....

Wednesday departure is in jeopardy.

Thursday departure gives another day to assess Irma and the forecast heading up is dry compared to a significant rain chance on Wednesday.

If really bad, I'm cancelling, If halfway bad, I'll cage it, if good, I'll still ride up with you, but it is looking bad..... :'(

Yup. We had a pre-rally here at my place. It was hard to see everyone head off this morning and have to stay behind. Wendy and I are headed Wed eve.

I still think you could come up by car. It wouldn't be the same without you man.....

The only thing I am worried about now is, if we head back on sunday, will we be allowed back since they might close off the interstate to let everyone head up north?

Gonna cage up with a buddy from Orlando area on Wednesday morning early to arrive before dark.  My buddy made me aware of the 80% chance for rain in Suches tomorrow night and 50% for Wednesday morning.  Thursday and on look good though.  Looking forward to some good riding before the impending doom on the return trip from Irma.

I'm getting really tempted to do the same. No one is been able to answer my question tho. If the hurricane is coming up through florida, will they close down the interstates to get back?
