Tail of the Dragon Trip

The “event” hotel is the Quality Inn & Suites in Robbinsville, NC. This used to be the Microtel, but has changed chains, so I’m hoping that they refurbished the place. The rooms are small and it is kind of pricey for what you get, but it is luxurious compared some of the other options in town. $88+tax for the no-refundable rate, $108 if want the possibility to cancel by Thursday the 1st. You are responsible for making your own reservations.

The following is a rough draft of an itinerary for the weekend. The only dates and times that are locked in are our Friday morning’s departure from the Greg’s Gas+ and Brian and Donna’s Sunday morning departure to home.
