Hey Glenn,

Assume your doing a credit card tour and not camping along the way. Are you headed to Rome?........I'm still in NC but planning a short tour around NE Georgia area in a couple of weeks. Looking at a loop from Franklin NC towards the Raven Cliff Falls wilderness area west of Helen Ga. Planning on camping at the higher elevation locations where it should be a little cooler. Good luck with your tour and hope the weather cooperates.

Mike

Hey Buddy,

I'm JEALOUS.. That's a whole Nother world up there. I destroyed many brain cells @ OctoberFest in Helen.

I guess you can call it a CC Tour. My Son will be sagging in the van. I will camping though on thru to Rome.

Still no takers. Guess there's just no Crazy's down around Naples. Talk to David lately?

EURFRENGLEN

ps: Should I take Martha Berry Hwy/27 or 41 thru Ga ? I took 27 last time but going thru Columbus was rough...

Have not talked to David since the ride. As far as directions I have no idea. Never driven up that side of Ga. When I drive up I take I-75 to Atlanta. Would love to ride the bike home this year in late October but depends on wife's schedule. Would probably stay east of 75 through Athens. In any case enjoy the trip.

FWIW: When i got back from a quick, 20 mile, mid day ride today, the heat index was 117 as opposed to yesterday when it was a chilly 116. Bring lots of water bottles.

You know they extended hurricane season until the end of October. I would hate for you to be caught cold miles from home in a bust-a-move hurricane.
