18/19 thru 24 July BRP Trip??
I will have a few days off next month and am starting to look at a trip out west. Here is my pre-trip plan for now.
Leave on July 18th or 19th ride out to Asheville area (meet up with a couple other riders) then ride the BRP and BRP side roads heading in a northingly direction, camp out at any of the many camp sites along the way each night. Do this through the weekend to avoid most of the weekend traffic. Then ride the BRP to VA, pick up the Skyline Drive all the way till it ends about 100 miles into VA. From Asheville BRP to the end of Skyline drive is about 500 miles oneway, with side road will be longer. I plan to stop along the way check out some of the sites and then head back using some different routes but crossing over and using the BRP and Skyline drives along the way. I figure from Fayetteville it could be around a 1500-2000 mile trip.
I'm posting now so everyone can mark their calendor so if anyone would like to ride along or just ride during the weekend part of the trip then you have enough time to ask for vacation time and get the camping gear ready
