HOG Chapter - Long Run - Great Smoky Mountain HOG Rally

HOG Chapter 4052 Members!  ***Update Occurred on 5/1/2022---read it now!***

Below, you will find information on our upcoming Chapter Long Run trip in September/October 2022.  

We're headed to the Maryville/Pigeon Forge, TN area.  The Tail of The Dragon along with other great rides are in this area.  Additionally, the Great Smoky Moutain H.O.G. Rally will occur during our visit time.  Come join us!!

Planning Info:

Thus far we have a few folks attending...see below.  We'll head out on Thursday, September 29, and return on Sunday, October 2. The plan is to meet at the MAPCO (1582 US-72W, Hunstville, AL 35811) on September 29.  The MAPCO is located right at the intersection of Hwy 72W and Moores Mill Rd.  Meet time is at 8 am with KSU at 8:30 am.  There will be two planned stops enroute with arrival into the lodging area around 3 pm.  

I HIGHLY recommend securing your lodging early.  Options:  Solicit a room from one of the recommended rally hotels, research the area yourself, or research a "group-stay" place on the VRBO website. A few have already began the lodging process.  VRBO.com was the source.  This experience allows for 4-5 members/couples to group up, select some VRBO offerings in the area (bedroom/bathroom qty), then create a "Trip Board" which you can use to narrow your choice of lodging location down to everyone's first choice by means of a vote process.  Regardless of your process...recommend securing a place soon.  ALSO:  Recommend securing lodging on the EAST side of Pigeon Forge towards the Maryville area.  Reason:  Maryville, TN is the HQ for the H.O.G. Rally and you wo t get cash by up in Pigeon Forge traffic when re meet up each day.

Each day, we'll coordinate meet-up times and ride activites for those interested!

Attedees To Date - 17 - (5/1/22):  Deno M., Valerie M., Nate C., Amanda C., Shawn B., Samantha B., Chris E., Lucille E., Seth W., Robert T. +2, Michael F., Ginny F., Bill C., & Charlie S. +2.

5/1/22 Update:  Charlie S. has reserved a "primitive campground experience" for tent camping should you wish to join his stay location.  Location:  1070 Massey Branch Road, Robbinsville, NC 28771, (828) 479-6431.  The campsite area has restoroms, firepits, picnic tables, and is waterfront.  The cost to share with Charlie S.: $230...the more plugged in, the cheaper it is to share :-).  If interested, contact Charlie S. via text @ 256-374-3034.  Another option to knockout a good time!
