People can either ride down Thursday night, or Friday morning/night depending on work & schedules.

Departure would be at checkout on Sunday (assume 10-11 AM).

Rough assumptions:

  • Lodging: (If 6 people @ a house (VRBO, airbnb, etc) $120 per person, per night (each want a bed - can change)
  • Food: Group breakfast & dinner Friday & Saturday = $15 per person, per meal = $60. All lunch/snacks on your own & as needed while riding.
  • Miles Ridden: 300 +/- there, 150 +/- per day, 300 +/- return = 900 +/- total miles. 30 gallons of gas @ $3.50/gal = $105 in gas

Lots more to figure out as we narrow dates & attendees. Just wanted to get a starting point out there.

Let's plan on arriving Thursday, August 8 and departing Sunday, August 11th.

Some lodging options - all in or near Robbinsville. If one of these looks good, let's agree on it & I'll book it & discuss repayment.

If anyone finds better options somewhere - share them here.

Option 1 (click/tap)

  • $1,623 total / 7 people (or more) = $232 per person total lodging
  • 7 beds

Option 2 (click/tap)

  • $1,029 total / 7 people (or more) = $147 per person total lodging
  • 7 beds (including a bunk bed)

Option 3 (click/tap)

  • $979 total / 7 people (or more) = $140 per person total lodging
  • 7 beds (including bunk beds)

Option 4 (click/tap)

  • $956 total / 7 people (or more) = $137 per person total lodging
  • 7 beds

Based on votes & location, will look at Option 1 for now. 

Option 2 had one more vote, but is nearly twice the distance from the tail. Not that we'll be at the tail every day, but as a "central point" I figure it's better to be closer to that. 


I'll start messaging people to confirm willingness to book & pay.
