New rates at the Red Roof Inn.
Just checker their website and got the 5 day rate. Asked them to change my reservation. Saved $20.00.
Same room.
Dont ask, don't get.

They closed all the Tim Hortons in St. Louis as well.  But I will get you some grounds at the grocery store!

Some are staying at the Goosepond Resort (cabins, lodge and camping) while some are at the Red Roof Inn in Scottsboro.  Scottsboro is about 6 miles from Goosepond.

It's all a matter of where you want to stay.

We all ride together each day and generally have supper together then we meet back at Pete and my cabin for bonfire etc...

Since Darwin isn't coming we're cancelling the 2 BR 2 BA cabin.
Does anyone want to take over the reservation?

We traded the 2 BR cabin for a 1 BR mini cabin.
You'd think it would be half the price, but no.

I just reserved the Red Roof Inn for Tuesday night through Sunday morning.  I agreed to pay a few dollars more, ($3.00 per night to have the reservation be cancel able just in case.  It was $64.00 per night on Hotwire.  I know I own my own business, but I still need to get permission and have the stars line up just so to take the time off this year.  The good side is that my Para-legal (who thinks he's my boss) knows that I didn't get any vacation this year and says he'd work hard to make it happen for me.  So my plan now is to leave on Friday night or Saturday morning  spend a few days enjoying the good places south and east of me something like Chicago to Cincinnati then Cincinnati to the Smoky mountains and after trying to do a little Smoky Mountains on to Alabama.

I got sold on the Red Roof Inn rather quickly because they gave me a smoking room, so I can't get thrown out like I did last year in Wisconsin.

I wish my wife could make it, she only gets 5 vacation days a year    That's why I'm heading back Saturday, I hate being without her.  Her vacation will be Helen GA for October fest.

Thank you Maggie and Joe.  I called today and reduced my cost.  I had my reservation through booking.com. Made a new one directly with Nikki I saved about $45 dollars.  We have a king bed.
It was a bit more.  We can cancel or modify up to 4 pm the day of the reservation.

All:
  I'm really glad I might get to attend & glad I got PO'd about
the Higher Rate from the #internet. Sounded like robbery to me.
It'll be nice to put a face with the USER ID. I can only stay a
short time Tues noon to noon Wed. I'm close enough to ride in
(275 mi) stay a while and get back in 1/2 a day. Hope it works out.

Just booked a room for Wednesday and Thursday.  At the $52 nightly/goupish rate via Nikki? uh, NOPE.  

Spoke with Don, the "general manager" or something official like that . anyway, after a lot of blah blah blah, no group rate for this group, no more rooms like those at that rate, they are staying 5 days days, blah blah blah . 

$62.99 plus tax.  But, I did get a non smoking King with Jaquuzzii.  The $20 extra bucks or so wont change my life but the "bait and switch" way hotels price their rooms really gets under my usually thick skin.   There oughta be a law regarding open, up front, honest rates, posted on a big sign out front or on the websites.  RANT over!

or well ... looking forward to great riding!
