    June TN/NC

    This years TN trip had to be changed a few times. Payton's doctors appointments,wife retiring then the virus. We had wanted to stay in Gatlinburg TN but that failed . Everything was full by the time we tried to set it up for June.
    Cashiers NC is not far from there and that is were we booked a place. plan was simple trailer the Sidecar there . At first we were taking Mother in law also but she decided to stay home. This years trip is all about Payton experiencing the Smoky Mountains area. A major dose of history . By taking the Edge and trailer if Payton and I ride off for a bit wife can still run around if she wants.
    Then the Virus shut NC down on again of again. At the last minute NC Governor extended his lock down from May 15 to June first. It was not looking good. The resort emailed me and all is good they let them open up. So we are good to go.
    Time to get serious about getting ready. Few things we must do with her on this ride.
    She will ride the Dragon and learn about Deals gap. Get her Dragon sticker for the sidecar. She will spend part of a day exploring New found gap and learn why find that area was so important . She the homesteads that are still there along Roaring forks road and how people lived. A dinner show at Dollywood to see the Stampede. This will not be her last trip to the area so we don't have to do it all. I know she will fall in love with it.

    I am looking over the entire area you mentioned. Prefect location . Still hoping that Chashiers NC works out. NC governor is just playing political games right now.

    The days are passing fast. Wife retires Friday. As of now the resort in NC is open and everything is a go as planned. Our back up if NC governors changes his mind again is to go anyway and find a place to stay in TN. The trailer for the sidecar is ready.
    Dry run loading and packing went well and weighting it showed us under the load limit. Changed oil ,primary and trans today. replaced a crack heat shield . Replace faulty trail light on the sidecar. Looks like everything is ready.
    Payton's last Doctors appointment is tomorrow for Botox injections . At the last minute the doctor required a COV19 test before the appointment. We got it done yesterday at the hospital drive up.
