136 is a good drive with some beautiful countryside. The small range of hills is about 3 miles long, roller coaster quality. IIRC, drive east it's uphill, driving west it's downhill.

Not sure about US-76. Anyone know if it's a decent ride from I-75 to Blue Ridge? If I am reading this topo map right, 76 looks like 1 good climb and just gentle rolling the rest of the way.

That's a good route. But I suggest that instead of turning on 382, continue on 136 and you will intersect Highway 5 north of Jasper. Then turn left on 5 to Hiawassee. It's about the same distance, not as many hills, and you pass a big Walmart in East Ellijay which is a good place to take a break.

I-575 from Cobb County is very gentle and goes through/around Elijay, among others.

I am not sure who is coming now with all the changes...

It's a big problem. There was a rock slide on Little Frog Mtn back along the Ocoee River in the fall. They are still cleaning it up, but say it should be done by the end of March. That's a little close to Springstream, so I'm looking at alternate routes just in case.

Thanks for all the alternate routes. We will look at these and make a decision once we know how Hwy 64 is looking. Hopefully we can just go that way, but one never knows when the state is doing the project.....

We just picked up site C-6 from Joe and Annette.

Knowing my luck, I'll get a call this afternoon giving us a reason to have to cancel again.

Thanks for the alternate route suggestions. We will get there one way or the other.

Springstream Map

Updated map. We're at 29 trailers/mohos on the map and I know of 4 others coming for a total of 33. Good turnout! If you want to be on the map, let me know.

You can join us for coffee Friday morning in B-11. We're bringing our 100-cup'er.. We'll be in our Avion (The other Silver Trailer). Should be ready around 8:00 AM.

Kevin

The word on the River Road is that they will have it opened by March 31. The state is sticking with that date and even said they will work around the clock if needed. However, I have 3 other routes if I need it! Don't hold me back!!! Now if the weather would just improve!!
