Since we had so much fun at the Tail of the Dragon last year, we're going to try something different this fall.
Thus, for the weekend of Friday, September 9 to Sunday, September 11
, we will base ourselves in Mt. Airy, North Carolina (aka Mayberry) to enjoy the curvy roads, sight see, and visit a couple of wineries.
If you are interested in going, please make your hotel reservation and let me know. There is a block of rooms under Palmetto Region PCA Confirm # 82552113 for $99/night at the Hampton Inn Mount Airy (Direct: 336-789-5999). Rooms are available either single or double - select based on your preference. Pricing includes daily breakfast.
Friday - We will plan to caravan via interstate/back roads heading north, lunch at a meat & 3 in rural South Carolina. More interstate/back roads to get us to Mount Airy. Time to explore downtown before a casual dinner & social time.
Saturday - Curvy roads in the beautiful mountains, casual lunch and visit 2-3 wineries before heading back to the hotel base to freshen up before dinner. Group dinner, location TBD.
Sunday - On your own to head back or continue the sight seeing/winery visits.
I've got dining recommendations and lots of suggested roads and wineries. I just need to know how many are coming so I can make appropriate reservations.
I'll update this post as more details get firmed up. Hope to see you in September.
