Made reservations thru Wednesday, 5/19. Waiting on Thursday as per note on previous thread.

Also, have Motorola Talkabout series EM1000 radio as recommended. Looks to have been a good choice, highly rated and at a very good price ($39) at Amazon.

The Fontanna Villiage Resort has a $50 non-refundable reservation guarantee.

This is getting real!

Booked Fontana Village Sunday night through Tuesday night. Getting there one day early with my family. I'm going to travel to Asheville with the group, but I'll be heading to a different place for the rest of the week. Change my status to confirmed!!!!

Are ya'll planning to use FRS or jump all the way up to GMRS? I need to know whether to spring for the FCC license or not.

As for GPS, I'll have no less than 5 with me. You can't have enough :) I have one that records the track 5 times a second. The picture will look similar to the one below, but color coded based on our speed ;) . I'll also have my VIO POV cam mounted on the outside of the car using a suction cup and a flip on the inside.

Will you be handing out GPS units like candy at the hotel smounic? :hilarious:

I'm not up to speed on a the radio terms, but I do know I only have FRS units. I wouldn't spring for a license just for this trip.

The radios will be handy on the caravan/highway portions. I think in the twisties we'll have our hands fill on the steering wheel!

I'm going to start another thread to discuss electronics and all the other misc. knick-knacks will have in the group...

It looks like I will be attending the 17th - 19th (morning). I think the rest of my trip will take me in another direction and to some class III-V rapids.

Hey Guys, I am looking forward to meeting & driving with you all.

If you guys are planning lunch in Asheville on 5-17 I will be able to meet you there. The route from Asheville to the dragon; I would suggest 151 -Chandlers Run (Schabwe knows) to the Parkway south & then exit onto 74W. This is a twisty drive that will take you by the Pisgah Inn.

If you have not selected a lunch destination, just let me know the interstate you will be coming in on & I will make a few suggestions. From there I can take you guys to the Pisgah Inn & meet you the following morning.

Have a safe trip.

Tony

Tony,

We're coming into Asheville from the North in I-26. Any lunch suggestions with plenty of parking for the group would be appreciated.

We're an easy group, any chain restaurant next to the highway would work.

If cafeteria is okay, it will have easy access & no detours. If not we can go the opposite direction on 19/23 and there is an assortment of chains (Applebees, Fatzs, etc.). If you like we can eat @ Pisgah Inn, but it might be 2:00 before we get there & 2:30 before we are served.

What time do you think the group will get to Asheville.
