REGRETS from me at this point -
If things change I would update you on this thread -
It seems these great events fall on weekends that are nearly impossible for me --

Is there any updated info on camping for this event?
No, you will need to find campsites nearby and contact them. Only hotel roons are reserved. Someone might know.

Just made reservations for the 12th-16th. I will be coming from Lyman SC near Spartanburg. Plan on leaving around 5 am. If anyone is traveling that day and would like to ride together let me know. Looking forward to the rides. I missed last year with a fully torn rotated cuff.

After asking my boss if we had anything going on during the dates for the 2nd annual GWD gathering and he said no. I made reservations for me a room and started planning my get away. I was informed today that I might have to go out of town. So we will see. I was so looking forward to going after I missed last year with my shoulder jacked up. Oh well its the breaks.

And here I would think that you would have told them YOU WILL BE OUT OF TOWN that weekend!

Well, lets hope that it will be the week before, or the week after the gathering.

If anyone is interested, I have put multiple routes for this ride in gpx format. I have all the Ohio Windy Nine routes and 3 routes in WV that start at Mineral Wells. If you have navigation that will import in that format and would like to have my collection, PM me with your Email and I will share what I have with you. I have printed directions for 2 of the WV rides that I will copy and bring with me. Looking forward to seeing old friends and new ones as well.

Don't know where that came from. Original post said "Room rates are $95/night (discounted $55/night for us) . Find a roomie and the rate is $47.50/night.".
