Sept 11th to Sun the 15th,... Wouldn't that be four-nights? Would the rate be $89/night if we stay more than three nights?

Bummer, we won't be able to make it to this one. :(

The week before we are heading down to Shreveport LA to see the "arrival" of our second grandchild :D :D :D. Technically the baby will enter the world towards the end of June but we can't go down there until the beginning of September.

I don't think my boss will let me take of the first two weeks of the month, just the way life is when you're an accountant. People like to see how the business is performing as soon as possible :o

Enjoy the trip and look forward to seeing the pictures.

Now that the venue has been set I will get to work on routes using Honda Trip Planner. Starting location will be the motel with rides to the Tail of the Dragon, Little Switzerland, and Wheels Thru Time Museum. If anyone has particular roads that should be incorporated into routes now is the time to request them. September will come before you know it.
