Anyone attending the Thunder in the Smokies
April 25- 27th ?
My wife and I are considering going and meeting up with some friends who are going. We're not quite sure yet though if we want to make the 8 hour drive down after we get off work Friday and then ride all day Saturday and then drive 8 hours back home on Sunday.
I dont think she is able to get off work to make it an extended trip.

I would like to go. It's in my backyard, but, I'm riding up to New England that weekend and I'll be gone about two weeks. .. If you do come down to the rally, it would be worth the ride. The dogwood and other trees are blooming and the air smells so fresh, not to mention the traffic is light this early in the season. Dress warm though, the air is still a bit chilly :wink: .

Sounds great but unfortunatly it doesnt look like we are going to make it down. My wife has been off work all week with acute viral brochitis and then the town where I live was hit by a tire slasher the other day and the SOB got my trailer tires and I havent been able to get those fixed yet.
"Insurance company wants to come look at them and take pictures
blah blah blah" Hell they are over 75 bucks a piece to replace too.
Maybe later in the year we can ride down and do the dragon.

Thanks and if we make it down I will certainly look you up.

Hope those of you that went down had a great time.
The wife had bronchitis all last week and then she turned around
and gave to me and so far I have had it since Sunday afternoon.
I feel like I was hit by a bus
