I was able to get into the field to edit the post, but since I didn't have the info, I didn't make any changes. Try to edit it again, and see if it takes, the forum software is still catching up to the changeover.

You can plug the following into your GPS or into Google Maps: 35.348305, -84.307067
You are responsible for your own room/tent site. Please wait to call Lori for cabins, they are currently locked, if you are wanting to reserve a tent site or RV spot (limited) you can book now. Lori prefers an EMAIL sent to her via the site. She has blocked off the entire time for us. In the email please tell her YOU ARE WITH THE SUPER TENERE RALLY. This is for tent sites, there are some outlets for charging phones and whatnot, might want to bring a multi outlet type power strip so the outlets can be shared.
Hunts pricing is as follows: $12.00 per person per night, $5.00 per night extra if plugged in to electricity this rates include taxes. So how ever many nights times 12 bucks. Math, it is fundamental............
Don't believe me about Hunts? You can look fer yourself on their website by clicking HERE.
Lori is good people and she loves phone calls, AND you can text her.
So what is for dinner?
In case you missed it I am working on menu, it will likely be a buffet style pulled pork dinner, 2 sides, water/tea and a desert. Kinda standard for the south.
Aside from that I got tracks. Yep I have tracks. About 2-3 weeks out I will post up some tracks for you to load up on your GPS. There are so many places to ride, neat things to do and I will give you some ideas. If anyone has ridden East TN they know there is good riding there.
Payment INFO (aside from what you owe Hunts): Cost: $48.00
Dude, I am broke........sure is a lot of money!!!!!!!
Someone always asks..............."Hey Paddy'O, what the heck am I getting for my money?......" Well let me tell you.
A 2018 Rally T-Shirt is included. Please make sure you include a size and your screen name on the PP submission.
if you asked for the size wrong I wear a Large so lets hope that is what you clicked by accident.
I am working on decals so you can stick it to your bike. Even tell everyone that you made the rally.
I am working on the dinner for the Saturday night dinner, more to come on that. Buffet style pulled pork BBQ with sides and a drink. Yes I said dinner nothing like a bunch of folks sitting around having a farewell dinner.
I do ask that you give Lori a few extra bucks, at Hunts they are cash people and need the cash to keep things going.
Firewood, what? ??? ?? I spoke to the Lori and I agreed to pay upfront for the wood. Sure we may need to move it around but we should be warm.
I am also buying coffee the days of the rally. If you have not been there before she has a outdoor kitchen setup, she has a tip jar to cover the cost of coffee, paper plates, napkins and what not.......bring a coffee cup or use her disposable ones.
Do you have a question? Are you are having a problem? Just send me a PM and I will get you an answer, (INCYMI: I have a broken collar bone so a but of patience please, I am slow).
So who is coming? See the list below, I will update as folks sign up.......

Wow I guess I should check here more often. This is the first I have heard about a Tenere Rally! Wish I had known earlier in the year. I kinda gave up bothing to look for Tenere events. It's rather disappointing that Yamaha makes almost no effort to promote a wonderful machine. BMW and KTM have it all over Yamie in the events Dept. After suggesting this since 2013 I gave up trying. Maybe it will finally catch on in other regions. Thanks to who ever is hosting this one for a glimmer of hope.
Wife is checking her calendar, I am a maybe at this point. Would anyone be interested in kayaking the Tellico River? I will not run above the bridge, too old and fat, but I think I can still handle the lower section. Might even be able to find my roll, I think it disappeared into my belly roll! Else, I can be happy just riding those fun roads. Or, a half day on rafts on the Ocoee might work out too, if there are any interested boaters. (does that make me "bi"- bi-sported?)
No it is not a suprise.....well I never intended for it to be one. MY helper has them made up and he sent me pictures. But......I had a run of bad luck, I had a fairly bad accident and my HD crashed on my PC as well. The shoulder healed up and I keep back ups, but I do not have the T-shirt picts. He is on a bike trip now (retired), I shot him a text to send them to me again.
