I was thinking (which is much more frequent than "doing") that while the Wales, MA GTG in August is a bit far (~1140 miles) for me, as well as the other FL Barthers, but a mid-Atlantic (VA-NC-SC-GA) would possibly be doable for those in the Sunny South as well as those in the Great White North. Comments?

Rusty,
Pick the date and time, anywhere in the southeast and we will be there.

Great! Hopefully, some of the Barthers from the Top of the World will chime in with acquiescence...I'm thinking Fall '08 would be a good time (although I do have a few Star Parties to attend in the autumn).

We are supposed to be in KY in October. We would attempt to make the trip on over to somewhere is dates work out. After that we would probably head back to AZ to hole up for the winter.

How about the Nashville, TN or Asheville, NC areas sometime late September. Still pretty weather, maybe some foliage, pretty central area for a lot of us.

Either place would be fine by me; I have the Peach State Star Gaze (where I met Nick last year) for which I leave Friday 9/26.

Count me in also. I live in weestern NC about 45 miles from the Great Smkey Mtn. National Park and about 110 from Ashville andabout 45 miles from Cherokee. Remember now, during the leaf season especially in October reservations are a must. If I may be of any assistance in helping to put this together, I will.
I am in the Barth now at Fort Wilderness Campground.
Happy motoring.

Talledega is Oct.3-5 so Suzie and I have to work around that or work it in. My first thought was to enquire if it's even feasible to think about the Outer Banks. I know nothing about that area other than we've always wanted to go there. The three priorities would be prices, prices, and availability. Oh yeah, and prices.

It's been years since I've been there, but the resort activity tends to power down after Labor Day, which would make space more likely available.

I like the outer banks and could go for that location. Another suggestion I have received is Cherokee, NC. There is a huge KOA there and it would be a lot for people to do. For myself, I would try to get in a round of golf.

Rusty, you have the star party in September. Would you want to do something before or after. Would you try to go back home in between?

Danny Z., you have Talladega first of October. Same Question, would you like to do something before or after. Would you try to go home in between?

Donna and I are probably the most flexible. I will try to make the calls to the resorts and get some dates and prices. What do you guys think we could hope for attendance. Think we could get 10 coaches? Let me know what you think and I'll start making calls.

We and our Barth have not been to the East Coast yet, summers months thru October are fairly committed to the ORR (open Road Race) schedule but after that??? We are watching for a Barth get-together that might fit. We might be able to fit something in between races.

We will try to plan it if it fits!

I could do it either way; the Peach State would be convenient to jumping onto I-20 and heading east. Fortunately, I could stay there until time to leave for the GTG. The Outer Banks would be fine by me, or even something further west, like Cherokee (but all those mountain places will start filling up for the autumn leaves that time of year).

It would seem we could expect at least 5 coaches.

The way this year is shaping up we'll probably be hard pressed to make it. [I don't buy Lotto tickets]. We will be in Augusta, Georgia in July for the drag boat races with Deb&Ed. Here's a nice pic of Rusty's fine coach that I forgot to post after the Fl. GTG.

Thanks for the photo, Danny; IIRC, it was around 78°F. Less than two weeks later, I took the photo in my avatar - at 8°F, wind chill -2°F...
