Accommodations at Fontana area already mostly gone. You will have to deal with whatever is left. I will be releasing my room in the next day or two.

If anyone wants to meet up in the area for a couple days on a different weekend let me know. I am only a couple hours away.

I stayed a little tiny house "village" last year that was about 5-10 mins from Tapaco Lodge that was pretty nice. They also had an area you could park a truck and trailer. Archie's Place was the name of one of the listings on AirBnB, but there were 2 or 3 other tiny houses on the property. Brian & Iris were great hosts. Even going as far as to making us a key after I lost it off the top of my car rushing to catch up with the mt.net crew. They also include a little local brew with each stay.

I'm driving down and staying with jcoupe for the first time this year! Pretty excited, hopefully my rig stays together. Anything I should bring besides tools, beer, and a camp chair?

Extra oil. I always seem to use quite a bit. Maybe that will be different with my vvt motor though.

Pop up tent if you can carry it. August's in North GA can be brutal and its a black lake paddock area.

Staying with us in jcoupe's cabin? Nice! Yes, you'll need extra fluids/lube for sure

So it looks reasonably good that I will make it. Waiting to hear if there is room at the inn for me (I'm not Jesus, but sometimes I have a beard like he did).

Babies don't have beards and you didn't strike me as Jewish, but I get gist, lol.

Some babies do. At this point in the history of mankind, I don't make any assumptions as to what my ancestry might be.

Thank you for the kind offer sir, but it looks like I am all set.

You don't need extra fluids if you never check them!

Planning to make this as my first event, does anyone have a lead on accommodations? Anyone want to split the price of a cabin?

AHHHH, just barely 14 days till i plan on leaving. Still so much to do before then... about a 2500 mile trip for me. Going to be my first time and slightly nervous, was going to trailer down there but was looking at almost 1k each way to rent a uhaul. Staying in myrtle beach for 6 days after the MATG event. We ought to get a MT group together while down there.
