Only bad thing about labor day, it's the first vols home game and boomsday. Hotels are going to be expensive and there will be chitloads of people here. Cops will be all over the road and the gap will be packed.

Hrmmm.... thanks for the local info.

So, good enough reason to pick another date???? I was sayin' Labor day for the 3 day weekend so folks would have some time to drive/ride in....

Other ideas/timeframes? or do we wanna still just deal w/ it and maybe hit up other roads that arn't quite as famous as the gap (what about the skyway?).

as long as your not interested in just making passes, even if its busy its still a good time to take up the atmosphere and enjoy the road & ppl








(there is always night passes)

I'm down for anything really...

Not so much on night passes... Especially on a road w/ that nature/ledgend behind it. I'd like several day passes to feel comfortable w/ a nice pass.... Just me. *shrugs*


Sides, I figure shortly after sundown we'd be getting hammered anyways...

Anyone interested in getting a caravan started going up there? I was thinking like meeting other peeps at different places along the way or we all just meet one place and ride on up.

I just remembered. Labor day is out for me. The g/f and I are going to Indy two weeks after. Plus, I steer clear of the congested areas on holiday weekends. I'll get up with you guys another time.
