I'm leaving the Milwaukee area weds, 7/15 (6 am) and slabbing (more or less) to Knoxville. I'll arrive Weds night (7-8 PM) and stay at the Comfort Suites off of I-40. Thursday a.m will be a run down the Dragon, over to Asheville, up the BRP to Little Switzerland, and cutting over to Johnson City - roughly 330 miles and 8 hours of scenic joy ride. On the slab day I plan on moving pretty fast and limiting my stops within reason. Thursday is pure, meandering fun.
Anyone interested in riding along for all or part of it is welcome. Also, I would be interested in hearing from people that are leaving the SE WI area looking for people to join their group.
