High Country Rolling, 2017

I am excited to finally get our newest rally thread going.........High Country Rolling! Look forward to seeing a bunch of our regular Southeast riders, but also hoping to meet a bunch of the Mid-Atlantic group as well!

It was 1993 when I took a trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway on my '92 Suzuki Katana 750 to visit family in Richmond, VA. Along that tour, I stopped off to stay the night at High Country Motorcycle Campground. I can't remember exactly how I heard about this campground, but back then there use to be just 4 in the SE. It happened to have been a Sunday night when I got there, so the only person that was there was the owner.....Turkey Tom. He was a dualsporting BMW rider........80GS....100GS, etc. It was great hearing his stories! That conversation opened my eyes more to getting a touring dirt bike, as how I looked at it. On the way back home from Richmond, I hit the BRP and stayed another night at HCMC. The bunkhouse was lonely both of those nights, but it was nice having my pick of beds! So.....yes....I am looking forward to getting back to HCMC, after over 24 years since my last visit!


Make sure and check out their website below.....but they have:
Tent sites - $12/night
Bunkhouse (9 beds....5 lower, 4 bunk) - $20/night
Chalets (4) - $45/night
Cabin - $100/night up to 2 people (2 additional beds at $20 each)


What: High Country Rolling rally
When: Sept. 29 - Oct. 1 (Early Bird - Thur Sept. 28)
Who: Dualsports/Adventure Bikes of all sizes! (All bikes welcome, though)
Where: https://www.highcountrymotorcyclecamp.com/


*if link doesn't work, just do a search


Rider....................Bike.................Days ..............Digs
cherokee_chuck......KLR719.............Fri-Sun...........Bunkhouse


PS...........If you want to include this rally while touring the Southeast, staying at several motorcycle/friendly campgrounds, you should check out Bootlegger DS Tour
