You know....I keep hearing these rumors also but I go up there once or twice a month and have not had any issues.....
That being said...if it looks like we are going to have some problems, there are sooooo many roads we can enjoy before and after the gap....
If anyone is coming down early track us down....we are going up the Wednesday before....We will be staying at fontana village....I will be riding a pumpkin orange 2003 z1000.
I'm hopefully heading out there the second week of Sept. In the middle of moving right now, so it depends on how that goes.
But I've heard from folks that live there that say this is all happening, and there are a ton of pics at the tailofthdragon.com website and Killboys site as well. Just be careful, and keep all those alternate routes in mind in case. I haven't heard anything about the Hellbender or the Cherohala, but I know they supposedly have hit up the Snake (421) as well.
