Dates are from 14-17 Sept

location The lodge at copperhead, blairsville Ga
SEE the post a couple down for more info.


our original location at Tims Ford is a bust because they are doing renovations on the cabins and can not guaranty we can book cabins this far in advance.

Currently looking at north Georgia and I am looking into the Lodge at Copperhead. its is between Blairsville and Suches.
They have lodge rooms, cabins, and even a bunkhouse type area where its like barracks style beds.

Good food at the lodge as well

Just rode through that area a couple of weeks ago. Some very nice roads and a little something for everyone... and about 40 miles from Elijay and the best barbeque I have ever eaten.

I spoke with Heather this afternoon. As we discussed rates, she discovered that the website contains last years rates. Essentialy 2017 rates went up $10 per per night per room She assurred me they will honor the rates posted on the web site.

Additionally, the rates posted are for two person occupying a cabin or room. Not the "per person" rates quoted for sailing vessels. The extra cost only comes in for 3 or more to a room/cabin.

Those of us who are military vetrans are eligible to recieve an additional 10% discount. She says there are no other discounts available.

OAD, unless you have negotiated lower rates this what we will pay.



This map shows where the units are located on the premises.

We just booked cabin #25.

Heather said she is giving our group both the 10% discount as well as the military rate... So, 20% off their regular rate. Maybe that is due to the fact that the rates portrayed on their website were old ones...?

Looking forward to this...

I'm booked in a Lodge room.

Folks at the Lodge aren't the quickest - left them VM on Monday and took them 2 days to call me back. But, I'm booked, so just be patient.

I would be very pleased if he would come too, but he is an independent sort of fellow. I will lean on him as much as I can.

I'll be riding my new Kawasaki Versys X 300. Haven't had it up north to the twisties yet. It is a fun ride to complement my NC700. With that little Ninja 300 engine at 12,000 rpm it can get up and go.

I can't believe there's only a week or so until the Gathering. The summer has just flown past!

Is everyone ready? I know I'm not. I still need to mess around with my camera mount and several other things that will depend on the bike I bring. I'll be solo, so I have to decide if I want to trailer down the MP3 or just ride the Indian...

Looks like I have to opt out on at least part of the weekend. I'm hoping to ride with you on Friday. It depends on if my wife can drive by then (knee surgery).

If I can make it for Friday, I don't know if I'll be down Thursday night yet. I'll let you know as the week draws near.

Been at hospital since Saturday morning to ride out storm and provide IT support. We lost FPL power to hospital and had to go on generator power.

IT is located across the street from hospital and we lost our generator power, so I and another tech made three trips across in high winds (tree fell on BMW) and rain to get everything down and then back up.

I hope I can get up to the Gathering this next weekend.

Well, I'm looking forward to the trip, but will once again be bikeless. Arm is getting better (finally) but not ready for riding yet. I'll bring my Jeep and try yo keep up.

Also, I'm going home Saturday afternoon - my pet nanny's dad is getting married and I don't have anyone for my pets Saturday. Hes marrying s girl only a couple years older than his daughter...

Many of us are happily married to someone close to our own age. Raising a family and growing old together with someone you love is a great way to live. These days grandchildren are awesome fun we enjoy together.

Which is pretty much typical for mountain riding, isn't it? There's always a chance of rain...
