The updated NE Bugavan Thread for ToD 8!!!. Biggest update is that Christie and I will not be traveling on Thursday of this year. Work and School schedules won't permit it, so we will be driving straight through to meet up with the group for Breakfast at Billy Bob's Dinner. Having said that, we will not be leading the Bugavan south from the NE this year.

I've updated the post to keep the room information for anyone staying over Thursday night. BUT, we will pick up our traditional Bugavan from Winston-Salem on Friday morning and roll into Bryson City strong!!!

General Travel Info: 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

Friday May 6th:
What:_____________________________________ Roads:____________Miles:_______Arrive:______ Leave:


Start the Day with a Group Breakfast at Billy Bob's Silver Diner, at 8:00am. Billy Bob's has another group coming in at 9:30am, so we need to be feed and ready to roll by 9:30. ...
Here is the Diner's Website: Billy Bob's Silver Diner

Warren and I found this place few years ago, and they have been great to us over the past years. Wonderful breakfast fare with outstanding service. Plus huge photo op to start the day with as it is a "silver" diner. Check out the photo's on the web-site.

Confirmed Breakfast group so far (10 people):
WARREN (2)
TechnoTrix'd (2)
vwfreak87(2)
Gringo (2)
rcflyer (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 by 10:00am and arrive at the 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????? 4 Day's and counting...

FYI, Billy Bob's double booked the room this year, so we need to be finished by 9:30am on Friday. Sooooo, please plan on being at the Dinner by 8:30 at the latest if you intend to grab some breakfast.

Thanks.
