March Moto Madness 2019
« on: November 19, 2018, 11:17:50 AM »
I'm off work Thursday-Sunday for this event.

I'm pretty sure we'll NOT be staying where the rally is held.  We stayed there once....crowded and terrible facilities.  We'll camp at the Cherohala Mountain Trails campground.


Who's going?

still too far out to determine if I may have the weekend off, but I will probably plan on camping at CMT if I go.

I will be there along with 2 or 3 other riding buddies.

This will be our first time to attend this event so we decided to stay on the rally grounds.

Most likely we will need to hook up with someone to guide us around

I got this book I would like you to sign. ;) Yep, one of those old fashion books, made out of paper.  :D

Al, I shared the link to your discussion thread with the NAVMC group to see if any of the Vintage guys want to join you and your group at CMT Campground.  More to follow...

David, since you have been to this before, would you care to share some insight on this event?  For example the pros and cons of stating at the rally site vs someplace else like CMTC.

I've stayed at the rally site the last two years. For me one big advantage is more interaction with interesting ADV/DS folks from all over the country and several foreign countries. Also the nightly camp bonfire and just the "rally" atmosphere. If you decide to camp on-site I highly recommend getting there as early as possible. It will be crowded and loud at times. I try to camp adjacent the little brook that runs thru the property because the babbling water muffles the overall din a bit when you want to get some sleep. We're a sponsor again this year so I'll be on-site.

Over the years I've stayed many times at Cherohala campground and it's my favorite developed campground in the area. It's only a few miles from the rally site and I'm guessing that it will be pretty thick with campers as well. One big plus there is the tidy restroom/shower rooms. Not gonna be like that on-site at MMM.

Hope that's helpful.
