I have been researching online and it looks like Cheoah Point campground would be best. It is located between Robinsonville and Deals Gap, right off 129. Only problem is the tent sites are first come first serve basis. I believe they have 25 sites and I plan on arriving very early Friday morning so we should be able to get as many sites as we need. It's close to Robinsonville so we can make runs into town for supplies or fast food and drinks.

With all camping we take a risk of the weather turning bad and camping in the rain is no fun, so being close to Robinsonville will have the advantage of being able to get hotel rooms if it rains. Not having to pay in advance for the camp sites will give us the flexability of canceling the event if rain is predicted all weekend.

It's only $15 per site per night. I will call them tomorrow and see if car clubs are welcome and get more info on how busy they are in mid October.

I'm down for this.
I can either arrive Thursday afternoon or Friday.
After my speeding ticket incident in VA, I plan on doing my driving at night/early morning.
(I saw 2 cops my whole 9 hour drive when I left at 3AM)

So if need be, I can figure something out.

I saw the video of you on the Dragon, you were taking the curves pretty fast. That smiley face must handle well.

It does.
When I test drove it, way back when, I was impressed with the handling.
When I took it on the dragon, I was even more impressed, and it just reassured me "yeah, I made the right choice"

So http://dealsgap.com/ has camping spots & I think they are only $12 & it's right there at the Dragon! Of course you'll have to deal w/the parade of motorcycles going up at all hours of the night but it's really close, they have showers, a fire pit & a restaurant! Sounds good to me  ;D

I don't see anything about camping on there site. I do remember seeing a camping area way in the back but it was kinda small.

I'm wanting to do this Oct 15th-17th. Is this ok with most everyone?

CHEOAH POINT CAMPGROUND is the best place I believe with 18 tent sites. First come first serve basis.

What do we call this meet? EECMM Dragon Camp 2010?

Tony, any problem using EECMM in title?

To keep things simple we should eat out in Robinsonville most of the time and just do smores and such (chips etc...) at night in camp. We could go town and get pizza's or what ever and even make biscuit runs in the morning. I like to cook in camp when I'm camping but I'm going to ride the roads and not spend alot of time cooking. Some may want to cook in camp. What say you?

We should all bring coolers with picnic supplies when we go out and drive, find a nice place to picnic mid afternoon each day somewhere on the road, Cherohala Skyway has places to picnic with views.

I'm open to activity suggestions?

We need to decide the date and location quickly so we can advertise the event on the other forums as well as this one.

Scott.

So its been a while since I have been on the EECMM forums but after certain FB friends have convinced me to log back on ;) I am totally down for a trip to the Dragon in October since I was not able to make it to the Epic meet this year!! I think it would be an awesome time to go in the fall...

I'm down for a poll, and let it be a vote.
Even though almost any weekend in October works for me...
I was thinking the 3rd weekend in the month... Or we could go all out and just do it the last weekend of October...

A poll sounds like the best approach to it all though.
That way, there's no arguing over who really had any input.
If it's user voted, no issues.

I'm not sure when the colors peak there but I would bet that late Oct will be too late.

I bet it's pretty crowded during peak season though?
If it's anything like most of the mountain areas around here, Come fall time, it's crazy because of all the colors..

According to the web it all depends on elevation.  Above 4000ft peak the 2 week, so reall the 3rd weekend, and below peak the week after, then the valley the week after.  I think well be good with seeing lots of fall colors all month.

We need to take this to other forums and also post a link to this thread on a couple of heavy use threads that a lot of members will be subscribed to on this forum. Lets set the date and start spreading the word.
