Route to ToG?

We are going to be at Falluminum and ToG would be a fun stop on the way back to FL. Google maps routes from Hiawassee to Helen via 17 but it looks like a pretty twisty ride over some mountain top on the way. How is that route for towing, or is there a better route?

Thanks,

Al

Doable, take your time. Going south the campground sneaks up on you on your right If you miss it you have to go aways to turn around. Jim

Thanks Jim. Sorry if I was cross posting, but I figured maybe different audiences.

I have done that road with a Classic AS motorhome, towing a 31 Soveriegn and most recently with my 66 Overlander behind us. It is slow but no big deal. You will enjoy most of it. I personally don't enjoy TOG but Helen can be a fun spot.

Thanks Alan,

TOG was recommended by our trailers PO, so we thought we'd try it. I think we'd really like VHH, but they have a 2-pet policy and we have three, so that will have to wait.

Wow, towing a TT with a motorhome, that must have been fun in the curves.

Al

Hello everyone!

Fall colors, mountains, cool weather....etc. Sounds great!!

I'm from Orlando and I've never been to a rally.
My '74 Sovereign is just now camp-ready and Falluminum looks like a great place for my first rally.

Question - Do I have to be a WBCCI member to attend?
I have no problem joining - just curious if it's a requirement.

Thanks!

Craig

Falluminum is a forum rally, I think, not a WBCCI one. So, no. Jim

I just booked site A37 - from Thursday Oct 23, leaving Sunday.
-- I figured I'd need some extra time to set up as it's my first rally.

Looking forward to it...
Craig

Haha - in the 'present' I am still Craig, a mild mannered computer artist.
I produce architectural renderings via my company in Orlando.

When I say 'company' I am referring to just me - plus a few freelancers that I hire from time to time. Nothing fancy.

"Future Craig" refers to my bright idea that I can load up my computer and trailer and use 'modern technology' to conduct my business on the road - and free myself to see the country.

I hope it works. I'd rather be working in the Smokies or Yosemite than in my condo in Orlando.

And the grand experiment begins....

That's good news. You barely sold your previous trailer, cancelled your Falluminum reservation, and then... presto, the new trailer comes available.

I really like the layout of your new trailer. A friend of ours was hoping to buy the very same trailer but they were not quick enough. Glad to see it found a good home and look forward to seeing you in Hiawassee.

On a side note... I bought two Anderson levelers. You'll recall I had borrowed a set of levelers from a friend and decided I like them.
