2019 OctoVRfest (4th week of Sept) - Maggie Valley, NC

We are going to do something different with the 2019 OctoVRfest.

1) We are joining the AGT gang who are also holding it on Sept 21-28 2019 @ the Comfort Inn Sylva NC, (Blue Ridge area). Hotel info is below.

Website: https://www.choicehotels.com/north-c...nc732?brand=CI
Contact: Anna Thomas, 1-828-477-4950, [email protected]
Rates: $99, single king or double queen. No pets.
Rate is specific for AGT2019 group.



2) I'm leading a multi-day ride to the rally. I'll post at the different thread, but we will meet in Front Royal, Va on Saturday, Sept 21.
Then on Sunday, Sept 22, ride the entire Skyline Drive (105 miles) and Blue Ridge Parkway (469 miles) to the AGT/OctoVRfest rally. We should arrive at the Comfort Inn on Tuesday, Sept 24.



3) After we arrive, you will have the leisure to ride the best roads east of the Mississippi. You can ride Tail of the Dragon, Maggie Valley is your oyster...take it and enjoy it!!!! I plan to lead a ride on Cherohala Hwy, which overlooks the Smokey Mountains.



Plan this rally anyway you like it!!!
- Come anytime you want and leave anytime you want during that week.
- Trailer your bike there.
- You can even drive there and rent a bike.....
- or just drive to have a ball with friends (who cares if you don't bring your bike).

I have other ideas...but what fun would it be if I told you

So book now and don't wait for the back up hotel...cause you are on your own to find one.

plan on attending but more than likely won't be for the whole week...probably get there Thursday. Haven't decided if I'm going to spend some time with my daughter before or after. Still...might just show up at Front Royal on Saturday to join the gang...we'll see.

sounds like a nightmare...I'm guessing they'll be enough to give the northeast some riding credibility...its not that they don't want to be there...its just too far for most requiring too much time off from work that many can't get...now if they worked for the post office.....they could go to a rally wherever whenever...was a nice fringe benefit now that I think of it. Anyhow...I'll be there.

Dennis hit the nail on the head. Just not enough vacation time. I take a week at Xmas, a week in February for Mexico, a week for the family in July, and a few days for Yankee Rally. I only get 4 weeks and I'm not willing to give up any of the others, so we only do OctoVRfest when it's close enough to get to on a Friday afternoon after work.

Hmmm... 4 hour ride for me... tempting. I'll have to discuss this one with my wife. Maybe I can take a long weekend and come up. It would be cool to meet Lu in person.

Whiskey, it's at least a 12 hr ride from here. We'll split it in two days. (and we may be bringing reinforcements )
Lu is an awesome person. Just be forewarned of the initiations he makes you go thru

People have said similar about me, but that's obviously fake news. I stayed up all night one night and listened; never heard a thing.
