Allright, so it appears that I am going to be able to get the time off to go to the smokeout this year..for those that have gone in the past, good place to stay? bad? distances away, etc... you know all the fun stuff, considering I need to get off my ass and find a room somewhere down there..
Thanks!!

been for the past few years; you used to be able to camp on site but thats no more. the place to stay if you can get a room is the holiday inn, it was total MAYHEM last year.

I say we have a JJ Drunk fest at the Holiday Inn bar one day/evening. This will be my first year but I'm going with some SO vets that love to leave vomit in North Carolina. Any takers? If so I'll post a new tread.

Holiday Inn parking lot was the party spot this year...

I know some folks stayed in the campground right around the corner from there and dug it.

Details on the Horse page, of course.

I've been for the last 4 years, I think...they get kinda blurry. Best conglomeration of homegrown bikes I've seen. Some yups have found out about it, but it's hard to hide. Lots of fun.

Went last year and stayed about 10 miles down the road and it was not inconvenient... still packed and a great time... for anyone who has not been, it is what rallies used to be about before they became so popular with the weekend rider crowd (not a bad thing.. just a different thing).

If anyone is heading out from the houston area, drop me a note... this year will travel from the ROT Rally in Austin, up to Laconia where I will have a big art show for bike week, down to York, PA for another art show and a tour of the plant, and then to the smokeout before heading back to TX... other riders welcome to join.

I went two years ago and had a blast, dont remember where i stayed. I was sick and drunk plus i stayed with the Flyrite crew so i never payed attention to the name of the hotel. So far i am planning on going this year.

OK I'll be the one to ask, where is the smokeout? do you need to roll your own? What weekend is it? Do people actually ride there or is it the traditional trailer crowd? Sorry but I had to ask?
