pursuit called yesterday to try to block off more cabanas. No go, they gave us all they had available in the first offering. Also, those that have posted might want to check their reservation. Fontana told Chip that only 4 have been reserved and we've got 6 who say they've reserved cabanas?? :confused:

Route Info.

Hey, folks,

Sorry to have been dormant all this time. I've been wrapped up with things at home and I'm a Tide fan so I've been on pins and needles past 2 months. We've got THE coach now! :D

Well, new year and time to get back on this.

I've decided to put a variation for this year. We will run the Cherohala Skyway - Dragon Loop.

Ride the Loop

dragonloop.gif
Cherohala Skyway

I wanted to include the Cherohala Skyway because that's the route I took along with Pville(Dave and Becky) into Robbinsville on our way up from Alabama. It's an incredible run and I would like us all to run it that day.

We'll leave Fontana in the morning and travel to Robbinsville to meet up at the Ingles in town with any daytrippers that decide later to join us. from there we'll leave and enter the Skyway and run it to the turnoff to go 5 miles up to Bald River Falls. We'll leave there and go back tyo the Skyway and travel a short distance to:

Bistro by the River


Leave from there and continue the loop via 360, stop in Vonore, TN, then continue on 72 to 129 and stop where we gathered after the North run to regroup.

Then run the Dragon south, If we want to make a few runs on the Dragon we can stop[ at Deals Gap, or find somewhere else to stop if we draw a large crowd later on. When ready we can return to Fontana.

deposit

A question, If you reserve a room and at the last minute have to back out for any number of reasons is there any lost of deposit?
I just booked mine, you have to cancel 30 days before or you will loose $50 of your deposit and they require first night payment as soon as you book your room.

Hope that helps you
Kimberly
