Sunday WNC ride

I'm thinking that I'll be ready for a ride by sunday (8/17).

I'm thinking mostly paved, starting near the NC/SC border and heading up to the Parkway. There's one mostly dirt road that with the light rain we've gotten should be "just right" for some of you dirt track virgins.

Any takers:

Johndre, Riley, Zoeydog, Stewart (oops wrong forum), MikeD am I forgetting anyone?

Hey Norm

I'm working Saturday evening. A last minute ,you have to be here type of thing.:sad1:
I'll talk to my wife and see if she can make plans with a friend for Sunday. I'll let you know Saturday afternoon if I can make it.

It just figures, now that I am old and wise enough to stop and smell the roses, I would lose my sense of smell.

Snakesan,

I'll nail something down after a few more posts roll in.

As for time, I'm thinking early, 9 ish.

As for location, I'm thinking somewhere near the NC/SC border with coffee, breakfast, gas and toilets.

I'm in

Hey Norm , just let me know when and were. I'll review the info this evening after work. Must let the pretty one know the route just in case.
I love the smell of coffee, breakfast, gas, and toilets in the morning. (OK not the toilets). The aforementioned items prior to the toilets, smell like VictorWee.

I'd like you to know ahead of time, bad puns are not tolerated on rides that I organize. If there are to be any bad puns they'll come from mee.

So far we have people from Saluda, NC, Walhalla, SC and Asheville, NC. Traingulating these locations puts us in Rosman, NC. Despite its many charms, Rosman fails to offer all the required infrastructure elements on a Sunday morning.

Nearby Brevard does.

How does 9:13 at the Brevard McDonald's on Hwy 64 sound?
