I am in ATL and wouldn't mind doing a mountain run up toward Ashville. That would be fun...

I'm in eastern North carolina but I'd be down for a road trip out there depending on the date and what not. Love those mountains.

rix337 sent me a PM and we both agree that Fall is a good time for a GTG.
I presently am in California and think that August would be a horrible month as the heat of summer is at its most grueling.

October seems to be fairly Ideal as the weather is becoming much more comfortable, especially in the mountains.

Does anyone have any desires of the GTG?
Meeting areas, locations they would enjoy more than others, places they have never been and would be delighted to check out...

I have honestly not done anything like this before and am accustomed to other types of gatherings.

Town accommodations are relatively expensive and can hinder some, however, some must have them.

I know of a few places in the National Forest for camping if people would like that type of adventure.
Does anyone need/prefer more accommodations.

I admit, I am a bit of an outdoor enthusiast and playing in the woods always sounds like a wonderful time.
This is part of the reason that I ask about others needs and desires.

There's always the Blue Ridge Parkway for nice drives and waterfall adventures.
Mythdoc I see would be hindered by harvest in October unless we can arrange a good few days.

I saw someone mention needing leaders, however, I think we all need to lead this adventure so we can all enjoy our time as much as possible and get as much as possible out of the efforts we expend.

Ideas, thoughts, preferred dates, everything is on the table.
What do you want out of this?

I am going to put this out there because I was there a few years ago, and would love to see it again. The Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest. The giant poplars are the biggest trees you will see east of California, they are amazing! Would love to have a beautiful mountain drive, and a little hike time and a sandwich picnic or cookout.

My 2 cents has been added, haha!

I'm interested but too far away to help with the planning...

Camping would be fine with us. I can pull my popup!

Chiming in from Knoxville, here. Camping sounds like a great idea! Plenty of great spots in GSMNP.

Subscribed, because if you get something going when I'm free I'll come down. I have an old friend in Brevard I'm always looking for an excuse to visit, and I love the Asheville area. Been to a bunch of great GTGs near there.

Dan Goldston in Chapin, SC (not far from Asheville) also hosts GTGs once in a while. You might reach out to him. I forget his username right now.

Well, you've heard the saying (from Gunsmoke I think), if I could ever "get the hell out of Dodge" I'll be heading to Alaska on the 24th and return on August 24th .......... thus, doesn't leave me much time to help with planning..... Now, that's an excuse.

Well, looking up Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, I was surprised how close it is to my neck of the woods. Seems we were right there next door last fall driving the Tail of the Dragon.... But, that is sort of on the other side of the mountain from Ashville! Seems the Blue Ridge Parkway starts in Cherokee and goes East/Northeast to Ashville and on. I've never driven the part between Cherokee and Ashville. I've covered about 90% of it from Ashville to Front Royal.. But, any section is loaded with beauty and nice driving!

Just because my location says Asheville doesn't mean that we're limited to being there.
AndyBees, what do you want out of the GTG?
I think that Joyce Kilmer sounds awesome and I have not been before.
Could be we camp somewhere and ride about to different places.
Sounds like a real adventure to me.
Pick a central place to camp and create an intentional itinerary we can change.
I might even hit up Daniel at ADW and see about stopping by for a while if anyone is interested.

Well, my wife loves the forest, hiking, photography, drives, etc. Seems there's a local VW club in Townsend which is not very far from Joyce Kilmer ........ nice drive! They might have something going on this fall..

But, nothing before October for us!
