A group of maxi scooter riders are getting together for a two day sightseeing ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway and we’ll probably have a motorcycle or two in the group. If any of you would like to come along and enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery on God’s green earth, feel free to join us.
We will meet Sunday afternoon, April 22, at the Days Inn in Waynesville, NC, and start our ride on Monday morning, spending Monday night at the Super 8 in Marion, NC. Time and energy permitting, we will tour Linville Caverns either Monday afternoon or Tuesday morning, then continue north on the parkway to Fancy Gap, VA. We’ll stay at the Holiday Inn Express on Carrollton Pike in Hillsville, VA, and head for home on Wednesday morning.
Please note that this will be a sightseeing tour with lots of stops to view the scenery and take pictures. We’re only planning to cover about 100 miles a day, so the pace should be leisurely. For you patch collectors, I’ll try to get some made up if I’m not too broke from car repairs, and will sell them for enough to break even on the deal.
If you want to go, make your reservations now and PM me with your real name and hometown so I can try to get us close together in the motels. We will take up a collection to help the chase truck driver defray some of her expenses. Lunch both days will probably be picnic style at one of the overlooks along the parkway.
This trip will cover the most scenic portion of the parkway. If you’ve never seen it and can get away, it will be well worth the effort.
