Alright gang, time to get our Bugavan threads going into high gear. So, here we are, the NE Bugavan thread for ToD 6!!!.

Stole this from Al in one of his FLA Bugavan posts: FRS radios will need fresh batteries and be tuned to channel 6 sub channel 0. It is highly recommended you invest in a set of these radios. Walmart and Target have them and they are essential for your safety and enjoyment of this event.

Here is a link out to the saved directions on Google maps for any first-timers: ToD NE Bugavan Trip to Bryson City, NC

Start the Day with a Group Breakfast at Billy Bob's Silver Diner, say 8:30am ish...
Here is the Diner's Website: Billy Bob's Silver Diner

Warren and I found this place last year, and had a wonderful breakfast. Plus huge photo op to start the day with as it is a "silver" diner. Check out the photo's on the web-site.

02SilverSport (2)

** Note: This is also a good starting point for folks that can't make the travel schedule on Thursday. Folks can meet-up with us on Friday morning in Winston-Salem and make the drive to the Top as part of the NE Bugavan. It has become a mini-tradition over the years for folks who live an hour or so away.

Next, Group leaves Winston Salem for a fly-by near Asheville (meet up with dedwards0323) and then Bryson City___________ I-40__________________ 0___________ n/a_________ 10:00am

Arrive Ridge Top Motel, Bryson City NC_______________ I-40/US-74____________ 73 _________ 1:30pm

Day Two Totals: ______________________________________________________ 203 miles_____ 3.5 hours

This plan also gives people some options when we arrive on Friday. Once you get to Bryson City, you will have enough time to either shine up your pod, or take a scenic drive through the area, and still make it back in time for the Pizza Party.


IS IT MAY YET????? 3 Day's and counting...

Count me in as well, I will be coming from VA just an hour North of Winston-Salem. I will be picking up my Co-Pilot in Winston so it works out perfectly! Just need to keep me updated on what time and where to meet at that morning. :)

Does this route go anywhere near Nashville? We are coming from Nashville to Bryson City this year. Hope to ride in with some folks! :D
We could meet up where I-26 and I-40 connect. We're meeting up with another org'r there.

Are you coming down I-26 by any chance?
