Glad to see Tellico Grains is still in existence. Food was great the last time I was there.

Not open this year. Down the road was a Crown Victoria up in a tree.

They are working on it so hopefully back open by spring.

Wow! Beautiful! I can't believe the colors starting already.

My wife grew up about a mile from there. A little town called Murphy. I love traveling down there.

Candace and I had a great time. Good to see old friends and make new scooter buds - as important as enjoying the rides. Hope to be able to meet up with this group in the future.

Thanks to Fuzzy and OAD for planning and executing, and to those who shopped and shared the food. Great work!

Safe travels, my friends. Hope you miss the heavy rain on the way home!

TnSooner and I made it to my house with minimal rain in Lenoir City only. had dry roads across the dragon. We got his scoot loaded on his trailer and 10 min later here came the rain. Dogged a drenching for sure.

I had a great weekend with everyone and looking forward to the Spring gathering at Vogel state park 19-22 may 2022

there is a thread started for that so get your cabins reserved.

LM15 and I made it back to my place. Heavy fog a few miles at top of Cherohala, lots of drizzle and an hour of rain.

Great weekend and looking forward to next one.

And now I'm safely back in Franklin, bike is put away. Was VERY glad I was in a pickup from Doug's house, because it was pouring rain much of the drive.

Doug's wife babysat my dog and she's worn out too!

We made it home last night about 10:30. 15 hours is a long day in the car...

We hit HEAVY rain several times, enough that it slowed the Interstates badly for a ways, and drove through rain off and on (mostly on) pretty much all morning.

Glad to see everyone again, and good to meet the folks who hadn't been to a Gathering before. See you again in May!

A couple more pics of the group. Thanks for letting us Newbies to the group tag along.
Glad everyone made it back safe, albeit varying states of wetness!
