Default B3R 2013 Atlanta Caravan

Since this is also Petit LeMans weekend, I want to get past the I-85N Road Atlanta Exit #129. And, further north will be more convenient for Ray to join everyone, with no excuses. So the initial meeting will be in Commerce, GA (I-85 North, Exit 149)

I always suggest bringing your 2-way radios and set on channel 7 for the caravan communications.
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store to Walmart - Google Maps

Saturday, October 19, 2013
8:15AM Meet at Cracker Barrel at 138 Eisenhower Drive, Commerce, GA 30529 (I-85N, Exit 149) for those eating breakfast there. Get in, get breakfast, then drive across the other side of I-85 to Wal-Mart for any initial supplies you may want for the trip. You probably want to top off you gas tank before meeting others at the Wal-Mart.

9:00AM For those not eating breakfast at Cracker Barrel, meet at the Wal-Mart in Commerce, GA, the same (I-85N, Exit 149) Get any supplies and be ready to leave just before 9:30AM. So, if you're eating, shopping for supplies, topping off your gas tank... plan accordingly and be ready to go with the group at 9:30AM

LEAVING COMMERCE, GA at 9:30AM
Drive up I-85North into SC
Exit 1 - Turn Left onto SC 11 ( Cherokee Foothills Scenic Hwy. for 47 miles
Turn Left onto US 178W for 15 miles into NC
Turn Right follow US 178N into Rosman
Turn Right onto US 64E - 8 miles to Brevard, NC
Approximately 12:00 NOON We can meet Tim and any others who drove from Asheville, that want to drive down off the parkway into Brevard for lunch. Also anyone wanting to join that is driving up from SC can meet us too.

Let's keep the lunch stop simple...
Wal-Mart parking lot (lower part, near Taco Bell and the Bank)
177 Forest Gate Drive
Pisgah Forest, NC 28768

Wal-Mart is at the intersection of NC 280, US 64, NC 276...

We will stop for lunch in Brevard. Right near the Bottom of HWY 276 there are several places to eat fast food. We don't all have to eat at the same place, most places are within sight of one another. Or you can bring something along for lunch.
Fast Food:
Taco Bell
Subway
Food Lion Deli
(maybe a few others in the shopping area...)

Also you can pick up last minute purchases at the Walmart here too. We can regroup by 12:30PM after everyone has eaten, and topped off their gas tanks. Tim will then lead us back up to the parkway, maybe make a few stops and enjoy the scenery, and get to the Flaming Arrow Campground campsite just south of Cherokee, NC before 3:30PM to set up camp. physical address:
283 Flaming Arrow Drive
Whittier, NC 28789

Also, map of travels: Cracker Barrel in Commerce, GA to Flaming Arrow Campground in Whittier, NC - Please use Google Maps to modify your trip to arrive at any of the locations.
