If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in here illegally, if you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote on who runs the government,
you live in a country run by idiots.

The Red Roof Inn property is a smoke--free property.  Pets are welcome, but you must contact the front desk at the number above for arrangements before bringing your pet..  It may be that they use certain rooms for guests with pets.

The hotel is 3 stories, 109 rooms.  All 2nd and 3rd floor rooms have a balcony which doubles as a walkway to all rooms on that floor.  There is an elevator/lift to the upper floors.

There are a number of restaurants and bars close by.  I plan to set up Saturday night dinner at a restaurant about 200 yards away so any who wish to have adult beverages will not need to drive afterwards.

I have edited my first post for a corrected phone number for Quality Inn and smoking and pet information.

My cat smokes, but only after he's had a few margaritas.
If you don't own a Fiero, don't blame your wife for having a boyfriend who does.

Just out of curiosity, I looked at how far the start and end points are from me.  More than 9 hours' drive...but the end point is about 15 minutes closer.

Is 20 rooms about how many the attendees usually occupy?

20 rooms is a general block, not knowing how many will attend.  Most hotels will honor additional reservations if more rooms are needed.  There are some who come on Saturday morning, make the run then head for home without getting a room.

This is a small sampling of how we will start this year's RFTH.  18 miles of Warwoman Road.  Every bit as challenging, if not more so, than The Dragon.  The bonus is that there's very little traffic.

Warwoman Road, and The Rattler are among our roads as well as our destination of Asheville.  I'm looking for ideas for the event T-shirt.  This is what I have for the Asheville theme.  Any other suggestions are welcome.

Probably too expensive.  12 years ago when this was taken it cost $45 just to get on the grounds.  Ramon made special arrangements for us to get in just for the photo shoot.

The colors are nice on that video, but the pace...who am I kidding.  What pace?  They're just crawling.
