Ok, so as we r getting closer, my "other half" has a dilema...his poor back will not take that far of a ride on his 1500 drifter....soooo we can either trailer or he can ride the Harley (which is better on his back).  Hate to trailer, as I prefer to ride and the trailer is 32'!  We do however have friends in TN about 2 hours or so from Helen, so maybe trailer to there n then ride the rest?  Thoughts?

That's good to know. Booking a hotel 8 months in advance seemed to be a pretty risky move. Chief: do you have any idea what the itinerary for the 17th might be? I'm trying to set up my timing so I don't miss something important.

  Ok, I just pulled the trigger on my room reservation. they are quite excited, judging by the person I talked to, about hosting this event. The discounted rate still applies, so...they have 35 rooms, and 24 are now booked!

Just booked mine as well.  Told them I was with the rally and didn't even ask for the group rate, he just gave it to me.  As a Sconnie lad living in Florida, I'm hoping Troll can regale me with tales from the land of cheese.  You guys should be thawed out by July.

What's the deal for everyone?  Are you going solo, or bringing your sig other?  Not sure if I should bring the old bat my beloved along or not, if I do end up going.

I just booked my room, at the discounted rate....just a little over 500 miles for me....

my husband and I went to every bike rally we could get to through the years, Sturgis 50th...Daytona 50th...and anywhere we heard of something happening we were packed and ready to go....on July 30 we would have been married 24 years(we'd been together 30) ...and I have a little voice in my ear telling me to.. pick myself up, shake myself off, and go enjoy....sounds like a good way to celebrate the lifestyle we enjoyed together... and from there.... start moving forward....

Since he passed I have been asking myself...where do I go from here...what do I do now...and when do I take that first step towards....whatever  ::)..yada..yada..yada..

I came to this forum looking for answers to questions about my motorcycle....well....those other 3 questions I've been asking myself...have also been answered...a bike rally...for Drifters...how freakin' awesome is that ;D....THANKS YA'LL...see ya's in July.... :)

Answering soul-searching questions.  Drifter, is there anything you can't do?  Now the only thing left to do now is...wait 2 and a half months.  Crap.  Looking forward to it big time!

DC, I'm planning on going solo, but a buddy may tag along.  He rides a Harley, but I don't hold it against him...

Wondering what the scheduled events for the drift in are. i don't live far from helen and would like to attend some events.there are a lot of good rides in north ga mountains like ga hwy 180(the most curvy rd in ga) ga hwy 197(nice twisties along lakes rabun and burton)us hwy 129 n to blairsville(up the mountain and down the other side) all a easy ride from helen. in my opinion the excitement is not in helen but the roads and hwys around it.it is fun to tube the chattahoochee river through helen on a hot day and grab a few beers but it don't make my heart pound like thoes mt roads.

I just checked the map.  WOW!  I can't believe this is so close to where I lived as a kid in Murphy, NC.

I am assuming the motel is booked...anyone know of any good campgrounds nearby that a man could pitch a tent.

I just called the hotel to cancel my reservation...and they didn't have a reservation for me in their computer...so...sorry I have to miss it...but I sure would have been mad if I had traveled all that way just to find out I had no room...ya'll might want to check on your reservations as well....To all who are going..Have a GREAT TIME....wish I could be there...but things are just not going as planned for now...

Hey folks - don't freak out! 

When/If you call to confirm your reservations - or to make reservations -  you need to make sure to tell them you are with the Drift -In or VDOG or McNealy Group Booking.

The reservations are there, under the group so that you get the group rate.

FYI - they do still have just a couple of rooms left and they will honor the $59/night rate!  706-878-2184

This is just a random thought, or misfire...Why not post your route here, if you are going. I'm sure some of them will intersect, and possibly it could create a meeting up point for several riders who didn't previously know about each other...like I said, a random thought...FWIW.....

Well we are definitely making the trip - leaving from NE Indiana.  The only question really is are we trailering or riding?  If we ride down I will bring the 800 and Tom will ride the Vaquero (easier on his back) - if we trailer then he will bring the 1500 drifter - -but then he got the sidecar done and he really wants to bring that too - - but then we'd have to bring the big trailer....so not sure what the hell we're doing - other than definitely going =).  Suggestions?
