    Sadly, I won’t be available for the meet & I voted for this weekend!! Then darling daughter and lovely granddaughter explained (during the Christmas holiday) how my presence is required in Charlotte on the 26th & 27th. I will keep watching this thread in case the dates change, plz don’t keep it all on Facebook-I’m not part of that party😎.

    Last year's cabin got booked before I could get to it.


    So If anyone is interested in renting a house or cabin, please PM me so I can get your names down and we can look for an available house before everything fills up

    In all seriousness though, I really liked that location. Great price, good amenities, scenic. Only downside was the driveway and it really wasn't THAT bad once you got used to it

    Default I think I'm in -Spring Meet at Deals Gap

    Finally have a running Spyder at the time of the Deals gap event -
    currently my schedule is open and Scheduler (Wife) has approved.

    Nice to (possibly) meet up with some of those who have helped me to put the Yellow 1zz on the road. Still working on Blue 2ZZ - no chance it will be ready.

    Hope to confirm by next week.

    I am also not a Facebooker - so please list any details on this thread as they firm up! I will be staying in Fontana village.

    Hope to see/meet you there.

    I can't wait to see everyone. Please be sure to check-in (vote) for the dinner(s) you will attend. We are putting together our concept for the BBQ as we don't have a lot of people singing up to come this year and want to ensure we have enough while not overlapping items. Also, please list if you have a +1, etc. All are welcome to join!

    Spyderchatters,

    Air BnB is your friend here. There are fantastic roads snaking all over the place everywhere within 100 miles of there. You won't exactly regret having to drive 20 or 30 minutes to get to Deal's Gap. There are also cabins, small houses, attached apartments and basements up there for rent for far less than $200 a night.

    For example, there are many small towns closer, but Murphy is just over an hour south of Deal's Gap, and the drive would be a great top-down appetizer for the main event:https://www.airbnb.com/s/Murphy--NC/...s_tag=EUvsdRWH

    Deals Gap / Robbinsville has places, too. It's even more of a "destination" than Murhpy: https://www.airbnb.com/s/Deals-Gap--...s_tag=wBcUNkB2

    I won't check the availability for you, just shilling the crap outta some Air BnB. Not affiliated, just a very satisfied customer, every time but one (that is a really long story, the experience was terrible, and Air BnB went to bat for us, so even more satisfied with them, just not the rental company).
