Work Day in Suches, GA! Come all!
Hey everyone! I just talked with Bill Johnston (new owner of old TWO) on the phone and was talking about how me and a few others wanted to come up and help do some work to get things opened for spring. He told me Flux_Capaciter is going to have a 'Work Day' thread/post started on ADV, and so I said I would do the same for us KLR guys!
The way Bill described it, the day will be a Saturday that hadn't had heavy rains leading up to it and the temps need to at least be in the 50s. They do come around from time to time in N.GA mtns. in Feburary! They will watch the weather and 7-10 days before a good potential Saturday, we will post up that the we will try it then. By Wednesday before the work day Saturday, he will make the final decision if it is a GO!
That campground is a special place to me..........I was in college when I made my first motorcycle overnight trip and TWO was our first stop! We stayed upstairs in the Lodge a couple of nights and had a great time riding the area and shooting the bull with new friends in a Great Place! Glad to see it is coming back!
It has to be tough to get everything going for Bill...........I can't wait to get there and help him out some......no matter how little it is in the whole scheme of things. He has a great name in mind for the campground, since Two Wheels Only (TWO) is not available. Without letting the cat out of the bag just yet, the acronym of the possible name is TWoS. I like the potential name a lot, and think it's still close enough that people will relate it to the older name.
Cell service was a little bad when I talked to Bill, but I beleive he said the lodge is looking pretty good, but was hoping to do some work on other buildings in the campground. As I see it, I will probably ride the bike with a few tools, etc. on back!
As of now, he is hoping for an April opening, so I will be moving our Valley in the Sky rally from mid-March to either April 5 or 12. More to come on that later.
I'll keep ya informed about the date of Work Day and anything else! If you potentially could come, throw your name in the pot........
Keep Loving Rides!
